The meal was phenomenal. From the bread with infused olive oils, to the appetizer, entree, and dessert. We enjoyed every bite. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is good, but not great. We had no issues of stale cigar smoke, and we are sensitive to smells.

Walking in to The Grill at the Ritz was very surprising. The first thing you noticed was the strong smell of cigar smoke from the cigar lounge next door. Then you noticed the dingy atmosphere. Hard to believe you were in a Ritz hotel. Their standards are lacking here. The food was actually very good and our waitress was lovely.... More

Dear Sharon R, Thank you for taking a moment to review your recent experience in The Grill. I apologize that the experience was negatively impacted by the smell of cigar. A few months ago we completed extensive work on the air systems supporting both the Cigar Club and The Grill and saw significant improvements in guest feedback and comments. We... More

An urban infusion; seasonal elements, simply crafted, perfectly grilled is the description that draws one in. These weary travelers were not disappointed. Filet grilled and served on hot salt block; truffle oil for a lovely potato soup; beer can chicken and a server that anticipated everything. The chef came out and asked if we were happy. We were and he... More

It's the FOOD that brings us back. The service is a close second - very close! Everything we ordered - exceptional. From appetizer to dessert - was memorable and devoured. Best fish anywhere. Portions are reasonable- not excessive. Prices were shockingly affordable. Recommend for special occasion if money is tight - you will easily spend $150 per couple. (not including... More

Wanted to have a nice anniversy dinner with my wife. On a Tuesday night, only a few tables were occupied. Service was very slow . Very strong smell of cigars from a nearby cigar bar; it,s door was propped open and it was unable to close. Person in charge was running back and forth to the lobby; he seemed to... More

My wife and I arrived in Clayton, Missouri at the Ritz Carlton for a conference. Because we didn't know exactly when we'd be arriving, we didn't make reservations. The maitre d' asked if we would mind being seated at one of the "communal tables," which was not a problem at all. The problem was that our dinners seemed to take... More

The quality of the food is excellent. I would have given it a "5" but the service at lunch was very poor. We arrived early for lunch (about 11:15) but they werre open and served lunch from 11:00AM, so they should be prepared. There were only two or three other tables occupied, but it was literally 20 minutes before we... More

Four of us dined here and enjoyed everything about the experience. Friendly, competent server, timely delivery of food, a visit from the chef who explained how and why the salmon was to die for, and value for the dollar spent. All this in a classic dining room setting in an elegant hotel.
