Was over with Son from the UK and had arranged to meet with wonderful friends here as it was half way between SF and PA - it was they who had suggested this restaurant. We got the table by the bathroom no-where near the window (despite having asked and having arrived on time). The waiter was extremely inattentive and the... More

Didn't have a great experience. food experience ok I bit into chicken bones -- not sure if that was a great sign that they use fresh chickens or lack consistency ? Others seemed to love. Items for sale were delicious habanero

Food was pricey but overall very good dinner with the exception of service. We asked for ocean front table, they stuck us by the door that everyone used to go to the hall of the bathroon, my husbands back was to the ocean. Waiter was not good more in to himself then servicing his guest.

Had dinner here over 4th of July weekend and was very satisfied. The service started a little slow, but a waiter came over eventually because he noticed that we hadn't gotten any drinks yet, even though it was not his table, and everything was great from there. Having been in this industry before I really appreciated that, Too many times... More

(This review covers the Sunday brunch, ignoring the cost. It's up to you to decide if it's worth it for you) I was treated to Sunday brunch at Navio. Really the best Sunday brunch buffet that I can remember. Many, many, high-end choices - sushi, sashimi of very high quality, great roast beef, shrimp, mussels, cheeses, amuse-bouches, smoked fish, fresh... More

Darren was our waiter. He was helpful with food selections. We tried the beef tips which were very good. The salmon was wonderful. The sorbet was the best we have ever tasted. There are two wine list. Ask for the more extensive list. The crab appetizer was really good with plenty of crab meat. This was a really good experience.... More

We've done a lot of brunch so far, but because of its' really expensive price, we really hesitated to make a reservation at Ritz Carlton's restaurant Navio, and if it was not for the positive comments on Trip Advisor we would probably never have been there. That being said, we never regretted our 'investment' and this experience was probably one... More

We went in for a light dinner following our reception and event, the filet was incredible, with a cabernet demiglace, and my fiance had the lobster bisque. The service was great and had awesome conversation with our Sommelier, eventually breaking down and getting a bottle of Italian Falanghina. While white wine isn't for steak dinners, I jump at the opportunity... More
