I had toast, it was cold and hard. Albeit very friendly services and it came fast. Waffles were also not tasty at all. Not recommended for breakfast, recommend to do a starbucks run!

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. The speed and warmth with which your meal was served should be complemented by delicious food.... More

We had fantastic well pampered sunday brunch back in April. The food was diverse and superb in every way, Mostly locals come for the treat as the hotel guests rather stay sun bathing outside or enjoy the golf courses. Service was remarkable, they remeber my name etc..

I was staying at the hotel, and I loved being able to walk down from my room for breakfast, which included a huge French press of coffee, amazing views, and delicious fresh food. I'm particularly a fan of the bagels & lox as well as the fruit plate.

Navio at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay provides remarkable and gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. The views are worth a million bucks, but the food isn't. That is not to say that the food is not good, but for a $109 Sunday Brunch, I expect more than just B+ food. Sunday brunches are hit or miss. This one... More

Generally, when a meal is fabulous or awful, I remember. For a restaurant that is considered high end, I can't recall what I ate. I will note that the wine selection and cocktails were excellent. Before you pay the high amount this restaurant costs, consider going to some other local establishment.

After being so pleased with the hotel, breakfast at Navio was disappointing. I ordered two eggs poached medium with whole wheat toast. Along with sausage and sliced tomatoes. For $30 I expected a good breakfast. The eggs were overcooked and the tomatoes had no flavor. On the plus side, the view was fabulous and the service was good.
