Great service and good food, but the portions were small and very expensive. The menu is almost all centered around sea food, and the night I dined there was only one land option. The dishes were creative and interesting, but just all so small. Two of us ordered three appetizers, two entrees, and two desserts and didn't feel full. So... More

Navio never fails to impress. Service is always impeccable, ambience relaxed, and food delicious! Also, the wait staff always asks if you're celebrating a special occasion and when you say yes, they surprise you towards the end with a lovely plate of dessert/cake with candle and a box of chocolates. It feels like you are allowed to stay there forever... More

I don't eat seafood or steak, so they arranged a entirely different set of options for me. VERY well done. Chef personally walked over to see how we enjoyed. Nice touch.

Every morsel was absolutely delicious. The appetizer plates were enough for us as we aren't huge eaters. The quality was fantastic and of course the view is absolutely marvelous.

Had a great romantic dinner with my wife. The views are amazing. We watched the sunset over the Pacific Ocean while enjoying some delicious Napa wine. The food and service was excellent. We had the braised short ribs, highly recommend it.

with the prices they charge, you'd really expect more, especially when compared directly to the hotel staff. we were a group of 4 people having dinner at Navio on Saturday night. restaurant was busy, but we waited nearly an hour after we ordered before we got the amuse bouche, which tied us over for another 20 mins until the appetizers...

This Ritz-Carlton resort is picturesque and breathtakingly beautiful. An opportunity to visit and dine at Navio was memorable. We had fun trying many different dishes with unlimited beer. Desert spread was humungous and delicious. I'll certainly recommend with family and friends.

A solid dinner at an expensive restaurant. Best part of the restaurant is the decor, which is stunning.

We were guests of the hotel and so ate a few breakfasts here. Service was slow at most breakfasts, but at an event breakfast the service was amazing, European-professional (and the food was picture perfect). At one breakfast, I had to send toast back so it wasn't just slightly warmed bread. Then it came back toasted on one side and... More
