I love coming here when I stay at Dove Mountain AZ. Nice staff and food. You have to be there to see what I am talking about. The view is amazing.

The food was good. The server mumbled when he spoke. He breezed through the menu highlights and disappeared several times during our dinner. Not at all Ritz Carlton like.

Usual Ritz quality restaurant, excellent food and service. We enjoyed several meals at Core, since they are open later and are conveniently located in the lobby. The service is overall very good, friendly and efficient. Really the only downside is the Ritz prices that come along with it. But then again, you're at the Ritz and you're on vacation, so... More

We celebrated a wedding anniversary dinner here. The food was wonderful and the service was great. Our waiter was very helpful in his suggestions of pairings which only enhanced our dining experience. Romantic atmosphere!

Asked for a table with a view for 2. It was magnificent, even if there was a rain shower...always welcome in the desert. Service by John was above excellent, food was delicious starting with Caesar salads topped by white anchovies (less salty) and continuing with the lobster and the very large pork chop roasted 24 hours ever so slowly to...

We were meeting friends for dinner at CORE and I had asked the concierge for the venue that had vegetarian options. They suggested CORE. However, upon sitting down and looking at the menu the only non-chicken/fish option on the menu was a pasta dish (boring!). Upon letting our server know, he said that the chef was a vegetarian too and... More

We have dined at Core for a few years when staying at the Ritz. Our first visits were excellent.. but past two years it just has gone downhill- As always at the Ritz the service is excellent whether you opt for the dining room or bar... You much better off at Ignite or Caytons...

The breakfast buffet has everything from fresh fruit, cheeses and pastries to oatmeal, omelets, bacon and tons more! I enjoyed sitting outside (in the shade) and enjoying the scenery with my eggs.

My first night at Dove Mountain and I had booked dinner at Core. The view and service were excellent. The pinot noir sold exclusively at the hotel is excellent. The Caesar salad was disappointing. Even though the anchovies were on top, the entire salad tasted fishy. The croutons were so hard, they were impossible to eat. I left most of... More
