The famous Ritz restaurant in Newport Beach is the best in the world! The original Ritz salad is the same as always which is hard to find these days! tradition is Grand, the mushroom cappuccino soup is foamy and hot, the stone crabs flown in daily are fresh and perfect. The rest of the menu is all prepared with care and bursting with flavor. The service is always over the top and the atmosphere is classy, romantic and the lighting is beautiful. Love this place!

The Ritz is finally back up to it's old standards from years ago. It was crowded like it used to be, due to the improvements that have been made. The food is wonderful, especially if you like rich foods and can stand a heavy meal. The beef selection is outstanding, and the seafood is good, but not as good as the beef selections.

The atmosphere is great, but the best reason to come to the Ritz is the service - unsurpassed by any restaurant I have ever been to anywhere. The wait staff is supremely attentive, but it is never overdone. It is the perfect blend of great food, excellent service, and a good location in Newport Beach, CA.

we went for lunch. i called ahead and ask what time the lunch crowd would start to thin out and made a res. for 2:30. when we got there it was still busy and the waitress was covering 5 tables two with groups of 5-6. my wife's drink was mostly ice and little booze and was billed at $12. seriously the lightest poor i have ever seen. the food was B for a A+ price . bottom line ; even the ice is expensive $$ in newport. beautiful restaurant but we wont go back untill we win the lottery.

My wife and I have on many special occasions, eaten at the Ritz in Newport Beach, for Birthdays, Anniversary, and we have spent numerous New Years celebrations at the this lovely setting. We truly enjoy the always great service, wonderful bar area, with its (slider burgers), as well as the wonderful, and always consistent food and service, at this long time great establishment.
The wine cellar is very nice for special occasions, for crowds bigger than 10.
We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant

Have always loved dining at this restaurant in the past. We dined there on Saturday October 6th & again on Wednesday October 10th. & on both occasions we discovered errors on our bills. We were overcharged for drinks which we never ordered on the first visit & for some food items which should have been included in the prix fixe meal on the second visit . Someone needs to fix this serious problem in hurry. Apart from the billing issue I rate this as Excellent.
