The Atlantic oysters, ceviche, and grilled octopus were my favorites. Best meals we had during 9 days on... read more

Had lunch at the Bistro mid-August 2015. Expected top quality and service from a Ritz-Carlton. Instead, we had tasteless food and wine by the glass that was vented. No reaction from management when I brought the problem to their attention. The only outstanding things that day were the price and the automatic service charge. Keep clear, there are many better...

Best service, best price, wonderful food, friendly staff, great location, fabulous view and $5 valet parking. By far the best dining experience in quite a while.

I made a reservation the day before and I asked about the menu for brunch. They never mentioned it was buffet. When I got there I was surprised, even though I'm not a great fan of buffets I decided to try. I was hoping to get more options for a $65 buffet. No eggs, no bacon, no pancakes, no waffles,... More
