Pre sunset dinner

We called mid day to get a reservation and we were NOT surpized to not be able to get a sunset reservation. We got a 6pm time. We brought our sunglasses knowing the sun would be in the early stages on setting and their would be glare. It was a gorgeous day and we really wanted to enjoy the... read more

Never having stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, I was hopeful about dining at Navio. I called a week in advance and talked to the concierge about an exclusive dining experience for my wife and I. Within 24 hours Chef Kevin Tanaka phoned to introduce himself and get the specifics of what we expected. I told him... More

Stayed at the resort and celebrated our anniversary. We had a wonderful dinner here, over looking a beautiful sunset. The wait staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. The food was delicious.

We had a wonderful dinner here while staying at the resort. We tried something unique for us, which sounded strange, but turned out to be our favorite dish...it was a salad with basil ice cream served IN the salad. AMAZING! Just added a nice cold flavor when mixed together, almost like a very cold dressing. Everything we ordered was wonderful.... More

What an incredible dining experience at Navio! Perfect service from the very beginning to the very end. Four stars and not five because the food - while very good - can't be considered excellent. We had the poke and lobster bisque as appetizers - they both were very good. Then I had the Alaskan Salmon which was good but not... More

Dear robertocusato, Thank you for taking a moment to review your dining experience at Navio. It is certainly wonderful to know that you found the service to be “perfect,” and ideal for a romantic evening. That being said, we regret if the salmon was not cooked to your liking. Every meal at the table should be cooked to your preference.... More

The setting is nice as is the view. The octopus appetizer was well prepared as was the duck. The filet mignon didn't seem quite right. It gave us the impression of something that had been (at least to some extent) pre-prepared and then warmed up. Perhaps not but it was not a stellar dish.

Dear Otto W, Thank you for the opportunity to learn more about your meal at Navio. While we are pleased that the Octopus and Duck were prepared to your satisfaction, we regret that the Filet Mignon was not similarly enjoyable. We can assure you that every dish is prepared freshly and to order. If at any point during your meal,... More

Be prepared to spend some money. Get passed that and the meal, service, view and atmosphere will be outstanding. Navio is primarily a seafood restaurant. However, one of our party ordered the ribeye and it was outstanding. (Being from Iowa, we know beef). I recommend the seafood as it is fresh daily and prepared flawlessly. But anything on the menu...

Had a great dinner here while staying at the Ritz Carlton. The wait staff was exceptional, low key but very knowledgeable and professional. I was really impressed by the sommelier who recommended a terrific wine for $45 after I told her I was looking for something nice in the $80-100 range. The fish dishes we had were fresh and nicely...

The brunch might be a bit pricey but it is worth it for that special occasion! The atomosphere, the servers, the artistic food displays . . . We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I'm very adventurous with food, my husband is less so but we both found plenty to please our palates. The dessert section is really impossible to accurately describe .... More

Dear AxelWinter952, We are disappointed to hear that you had a less-than-exceptional dining experience at our resort. We can assure you what you experienced was not up to our standards, which you are right to expect from a hotel of our caliber and standing.
