Best Restaurant anywhere near this hotel is in the hotel itself. Specializes in Fish, has great views and the reservations are best made in advance. Wine list decent. Noise level is acceptable. Not for kids. Good for business. Prices is high per person but they meet high standards.

Located at the Ritz in half moon bay the menu changes frequently based on the availability of fresh, local ingredients selected by the chef. The menu is heavy on the seafood side. Dishes are well prepared and portions are reasonable in size. Our party of 10 sampled a wide variety of the selections and were pleased with all of them.... More

The variety and quality of items was unrivaled. A wide variety of sweet and savory. However, it was very expensive. $125 per adult, this comes with one (only 1) glass of champagne. Still an enjoyable meal, and we were glad that we didn't eat much the night before and had nothing that morning (our brunch seating was 11 am). There... More

The food was fabulous and the servers were also. We had Lisa and Sam, who were both very friendly and helpful.

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
