“Very good, super pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

HMB seems to be pricey all around, but Navio takes the cake. While it is admittedly great food, you can get equally great food in town or up the coast for less money. Here, you are paying for the beautiful views and beautiful venue. Careful visiting on holidays or for brunch during big events, you will most likely not be seated in the restaurant but in the big ballrooms instead. I would recommed Navio for a once a year brunch, but that is all.

“"NAVIO" is just plain hard to beat...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

What an amazing wine vintner's dinner we had last week at "Navio" - they were hosting "Stage Left Cellars" from Oakland, and the wine pairings were amazing!

“My husband was still hungry.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Our dinner was good. It wasn't outstanding, I guess I expected more...My husband left hungry, after ordering an app., dinner, .....nothing appealed to him on the dessert menu, otherwise he would have ordered it. The sunset view was beautiful!

“Foodie Jewel with an Ocean View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

My husband & I spent a few days at Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay and had dinner at Navio. The food was amazing and service, outstanding. One of the starters was a pea soup with I believe a Parmesan mousse, it was incredible and the chef was kind enough to give me the recipe. I had the Brandt Beef Natural New York with baked goat cheese macaroni and my husband had the Brandt Natural Ribeye, both were outstanding. The ambiance is warm and inviting, we even began chatting with a couple at a nearby table.All this and a view of the ocean. Do not miss this foodie find if you in Half Moon Bay!

“awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

food, service and ambiance were all wonderful. I don't understand why reviewers often complain about the prices of five star hotels and restaurants. It's a five star restaurant, and it was excellent. It is the most elegant restaurant we went to in the area, and we were happy to pay for such a great atmosphere and meal.
