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

Great place. The views are awesome. The service was tremendous. Sommelier is out of this world. Food was five star quality. Octopus salad was awesome. Fresh oysters were great. The short ribs are some of the best I have ever had.

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
