Everything we had was very well made, though out and presented. The food was amazing at lunch and at dinner.

We, my family and my friends love this hotel. It's not always true. We ordered a small dish and waited for 30 minutes and more, but our dish was not delivered. A server came to us and said "coming soon". I said O.K. But, we could not enjoy the food since 'coming soon' was can't be soon. Just one small... More

We came here especially so we could say we had lunch at the Ritz. Indeed, we spent $40 on sliders and soup. Drink water. It did feel quite posh and the food was good. They made us wait an hour and a half without a reservation, we were just two. Definitely make a reservation. We thought we would go out... More

We had lunch here after checking in at the Ritz Carlton. Service was very slow. I ordered the cioppino. It was bland. My husband ordered the mussels and the texture was off so he sent them back without eating them. Prices are high which I expected for the Ritz Carlton but the quality is just not there.

Like many CA restaurants, the wine list is always over priced, but there are a few choices that might be affordable. The service is very fast and the food definitely has gourmet flavors that will enable you to enjoy the meal.

Casual indoor dining for the Ritz Carlton. But it's the Ritz Carlton so this is not casual pricing. Plan on $18 appetizers and a $25 cheeseburger. But we were here for a special occasion stay and didn't want the formality of Navio. All dishes we ordered were excellent each time and be sure to get the RC chocolate cake for... More

There are no signs along Highway 1 approaching Half Moon Bay that there is a Ritz Carlton on the coast. There isn't even a hint. No manicured shrubs, no colonnade of trees, no explosion of flowers, nada. As I planned our journey from Imperial Beach, south of San Diego up along the coast following Highway 1 as closely as possible,... More
