Best meal of the trip. Beautiful restaurant. The service is fantastic and was right up there with the best restaurants in all of our travels. Two great amuse bouche from the chef to start the meal. Great bread with a selection of olive oils. Don't miss the lamb or the filet. The tuna appetizer was inventive and fantastic.

The excellent service is felt throughout this particular Ritz Carlton, we had the MOST amazing & delicious dinner here! We ate here two times during our stay, and would have gone again except there were closing for remodeling...the room was beautiful and the service was second to none. This place is a MUST visit even if you are not staying... More

We were staying on the Club level, but decided to celebrate our last night with dinner here. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. There was a piano player for our entire meal and the restaurant was almost empty, there were only two more couples. The service was of course attentive and what would be expected of a 5 Star...

Pampered through the night by everyone. The food was delicious. I see it as a french/mediterranean fine dining style restaurant.

The highly trained staff at this restaurant demonstrated the famous Ritz customer service from start to finish. The waiter was friendly without being overbearing. Our dishes were cleared as soon as we were done with each course. But the food was the star of the evening. Each course was better than the last, with perfect portion sizes. We did not... More

Second time dining at Fantino and again an amazing evening. The chef is so creative, each dish is a "work of art" on a plate and delicious! The mushroom risotto with truffle and fontina cheese is out of this world, had it both times and am still longing to eat it everyday. Every course was better than the next. The... More

Both restaurants at the Ritz are very good, and the value for experience is amazing. The dining experience is amazing. We tried a few appetizers and main courses at the table, everything was really really good, but nothing was mind blowing like the Club Grill. Fantino is also a little more expensive than The Club Grill so if you only... More

We went there to have a Christmas dinner. We were seated in a private room because there were so many of us. We had 2 small kids and they had organised a toddler chairs to both of them. The restaurant looks beautiful. There was a Christmas special menu that night and we were pleased with the food. All in all... More
