Just had the most amazing brunch, with great food and service. I want to especially mention Sanjay, who was completely attentive to all our needs and made us feel so especially welcomed. Would definitely recommend this Friday brunch.

We were on half board and we could choose either dinner or lunch and breakfast ! But the only restaurant open for lunch is Giornotte, whereas for dinner the options are just fantastic: choose from the Asian Li Jiang or Lebanese Mijana or opt for...a gorgeous steakhouse The Forge. However we are kind of in weight watching spree now and preferred lunch over dinner for the same reason. The lunch could be chosen from an elaborate set menu and frankly we felt it had dishes from all the above said restaurants and we just loved the variety of cuisines put on the menu! What we devoured: Salads: 🥗Apple Prawn Salad with Cider Dressing 🥗Caesar Salad with Chicken 🥗Rocket Salad with Avocado butternut squash asparagus and lemon dressing Mains: 🍝Mie Goreng with prawn crackers 🍲Salmon Fillet with Asparagus, steamed Parsley and dill sauce 🥪 Chicken Club Sandwich for our Kiddo Desserts: 🍦Vanilla Ice Cream 🍰Ritz Carlton special Pure Valrhona chocolate pound cake 🍥Tiramisu Awesome service by the team and really loved the attentiveness of each and every service staff who were friendly and undoubtedly we had an Amazing hearty lunch indeed! The breakfast was on of its kind and so happy the covid protocols they follow are way beyond and had never seen in another other recent staycations ! Felt super safe and happy !More

We had a wonderful experience at the Friday brunch at Giornotte restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi. There are tables both inside the restaurant and along an indoor air-conditioned patio. As soon as we sat down, Swapnil J. , one of the hotel restaurant assistant...managers, came over to personally welcome us and describe the brunch package options. There are 3 options - soft drinks, house beverages, and champagne. We opted for house beverages which included a wonderful sparkling wine option. The only difference between the house package and the champagne package is the addition of the French champagne. So, unless you want to treat yourself, you can get all the other premium beverages by sticking with the house package only. As it was our first time, Swapnil then took us personally through the brunch layout and explained what was available at each station. We truly appreciated this extra touch as we did not have to spend any time trying to figure out where to go for what choices. I have been to brunches with more options and volume of food - but Giornotte brunch is the hands-down winner for quality. The centerpiece of brunch is a Waygu beef roast which is carved upon your request. It was fabulous! This station also included roasted turkey, roasted potatoes and veg, and several types of gravies and sauces. There are a lot of seafood options, including chilled shrimp, lobster and oysters. Additionally there are choices for Italian, sushi, skewers grilled to order, and salads. The quality of the food was evident in every bite. The staff was amazing and made sure our glasses were also topped up with our beverage of choice. We enjoyed sparkling wine, white and red house wines, as well as a couple of cocktails. There is a small cocktail menu, but you can order any standard cocktail of your choosing and the staff is happy to accommodate. You select a dessert option from a menu of several choices, and it is served at your table. Trust me when I tell you that this is in no way limiting - as each option is plentiful and you can select more than one to satisfy your sweet cravings. From the moment we arrived until our departure, the service was attentive but not overbearing. Thank you to Swapnil for making our experience unforgettable! We will definitely be back.More

I am living and working in Abu Dhabi since 18 years, this has been the worst experience ever. I am a fan of Ritz Carlton but never again in Abu Dhabi! Absolutely bad experience, the day was spoiled. So sad!!!
