Superb if not crowded

The food is excellent. The sommelier is knowledgeable. Their Riesling is really refreshing and nice. However, with just one great waiter, they can get stretched very thin on busy nights. Then, they're sloppy.

This was a red carpet treatment from the minute the chef greeted us as we walked in the door! The service was amazing and the food was wonderful. We were very tired and it was a great way to relax at the end of a busy day.

This is a great restaurant. The food is farm to table and very good. Service was excellent, but you do need reservations. We enjoyed the atmosphere in this restaurant and the only negative is that it was so good that I ate way too much, ha ha.

One night was because we were staying here anyhow, the second because our meals were that good, along with the service. I like steak, and the filet was a good cut and done medium rare, just like I like it. The bisque was great, from local pumpkin, could have had two servings of that! The vegetarian choices met with approval... More

We had dinner at this restaurant and the food and service really exceeded our expectations. It was expensive but worth it. The combination of food and sauce was perfect.

Ritz-Carlton has some outstanding dining venues in its hotels. This is not one of them. It is not bad. It is just not much above average. At the prices you pay, you have a right to expect more. WE quite often eat seafood, particularly when in a place like Hawaii, but the choices were extremely limited - only one fish... More
