We ate breakfast here on a Saturday morning as we were staying at the hotel. We hadn't planned on ordering the buffet but when we compared the pricing of a la carte to the buffet we went for it. We were pleasantly surprised. I was impressed with the quality of the food. Buffets often don't look that appetizing. The fruit... More

We were celebrating a major birthday and wedding anniversary. The staff in Navio made us forget (at least for a short while) our poor experience with the property. They made the evening very special from beginning to end. Great food and even better service.

The breakfast buffet was absolutely amazing. The quality and selection was fabulous. The danish selection was impressive with my favorite being a fig danish. The $39 price was the best value for a buffet of this quality. The staff was also extremely helpful and accommodating. Don't miss breakfast at Navio while staying at The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay.

Beautiful location, restaurant inside the Ritz Carlton by the ocean. Watch the sunset while dining. Great food! Especially love their brioche bread, it can be addictive. Service great. Their margarita is a disappointment. Very pricey.

We had the most amazing meal prepared as a birthday feast for my "sister" and I, who share September as a birthday month. WOW.

As our hostess said right out loud in front of the wait staff, "order starters, the portions of the entrees are so small you'll need something else to eat." The wait staff is stuffy. It's a lot of effort for them to fill your glass and to come back to see how things are going. I'm sorry, with excellent restaurants... More

Bad service, cold food, and a total disappointment. Since we sat down, water was not offered, my order was wrong, the food overly presented and under seasoned. Take a short drive to SF downtown and learn how your sister property does it right. We will never be back again.

Lovely dinner, but as expected with on-property restaurants, overpriced. If you can go into town, do it, but if not, you'll enjoy your meal for sure!

My husband and I ate here last night. The restaurant is beautiful and the bread fresh and delicious. Unfortunately, those are the only positive things I can write. The food is inedible. I do not recommend this restaurant. Choose another place. My husband and I left hungry and disappointed.
