My husband and I had dinner at Navio because we were staying at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, where Navio is located. We really didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised from start to finish. We were seated by the window with an absolutely beautiful view of the ocean! Our Server, Greg, was able to... More

Our waitress seemed incredibly overworked, came by to take orders even though the last we had seen her 10 min before was to ask for menus (this happened again with dessert- where she said she'd be right back with menus and then came back 10 min later asking if we had made a decision). While my wife had the scallops... More

Went here with wife and 9 yr old daughter on a Saturday night. Food was very good as they offered many options for my daughter. Prices are high, but you are in a Ritz Carlton so you should not be surprised. While the food met expectations , the staff went above and beyond. Very attentive to our needs, came back... More

Too expensive for locals! The server kept offering to bring us this and that and when we got the bill it was major sticker shock.

Excellent food and service. Portion size was good, not too small. Our waiter was friendly, efficient but not intrusive. The Sea Bass and seafood appetizer was fabulous. The tuna tartar was as tender as could be, the raw oyster tasted like the sea. Really good. The drinks were what I found to be expensive but they too were tasty. You... More

The brunch is infamous. The location is pretty sweet. The price is way up there. The selection of dishes are quite broad. The traditional breakfast stuff is nails. The cold area is great. The first time I've had caviar and it wasn't intimidating. The smoked/cured fish was good. The pastries up front are very good and perfect sized. I was... More

We went here for brunch as the previous reviewers are strongly recommending. The price is high-end but the quality is high-end too so it does worth the try. I loved their endless caviar, crustaceans and tons of desserts.

I brought my fiance here for a birthday dinner, and we had an awesome dining experience. We sat in one of the booths, which offered the privacy we had wanted without taking away the view, which would have been amazing had there been daylight. Our portions were very appropriate, and everything was absolutely delicious. A half-bottle of Pinot Noir was... More

We had not been to Navio in a little while, so we decided to go for Christmas Eve. It was busy, as it should be that night, and the bar area was welcoming as usual. I am not really sure on Christmas Eve why there has to be sports playing on screens above the bar, it's distracting and was not... More
