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

Great meal and view. Started off with appetizers - meatballs, fritto misto and prawns cocktails. Surprisingly the portions are every substantial in size. 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...

Our service was great. We had drinks and a meal. I wasn't too impressed with my meal compared to the price we paid, but the experience was priceless

Wonderful lighting, decor and service. Fantastic views of the ocean and the grounds below the room. Food average, and yes, very expensive ($74 for two minimalist buffet breakfasts).

There is nothing more elegant that the Conservatory Lounge at the Ritz Carlton - Half Moon Bay. It was our destination of choice after flying from the East Coast on route to Carmel. We timed our flights from Boston so that we could land at SFO, get a car and make it to Half Moon Bay in time for lunch.... More
