The meal was pretty standard for lunch and we enjoyed it very much. Only issue they added someone's 3 vodkas and 1 espresso to our bill so check your bill before you check out.

Was staying at hotel and had dinner here. Limited menu, but everything we got was delicious. Would eat here again if I was staying on property, but not a restaurant I would go out of my way to eat at.

As a continuous patron of the Ritz brand, I always wanted to visit the Half Moon Bay property. During my stay, we had dinner one evening at The Conservatory and the experience was "good". Service was great and the food also was of sustainable quality. The views in the Conservatory (and everywhere on the property for that matter) are exceptional.... More

This casual dining spot has lovely views over the fire pits and the ocean, and is a great place for a quick, causal meal. The dinner menu consists of a wide range of items including burgers, pasta, salads, chicken and the like. The portions were large and tasty. I wasn't very hungry but wanted the pasta with meat sauce, so... More

Meatballs were good and had a middles eastern flare to them with hints of cinnamon and raisins. Fritto misto (mixed fry) that came with fried calamari, shrimp,fennel and olive accompanied with an aioli and cocktail sauce. This... More

You can't beat it. Expect to pay a fortune for drinks. I guess when you take into account the setting, it almost justifies the price.

The food had excellent flavors and texture and was superbly cooked. The waiters are very attentive and responsive. The restaurant has a beautiful ocean view. Parking was kind of difficult to find though.

This is a nice small spot to enjoy a bit of adult beverage and some nice treats. The room has a warm feel to it. The staff is always up for any questions you may have

I have visited the Ritz Carlton for lunch several times but I will not be hurrying back afer the last experience. We arrived and were shown a table which we declined as one of us would have been sitting on a low sofa and the other on a normal upright chair - hardly the ideal arrangement. With a tiny bit...
