This is the new relocated Ritz adjacent to Billy's and the Rusty Pelican. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated in a trendy style. There is a large bar that we will visit the next time. We had dinner and choose from two appetizers and shared the main entree. The food was excellent and so was the service. The view is of the yachts parked in front of the windows. It is the Ritz and the prices were very high. Our entree was $49 and we had to order side dishes with it because it only consisted of a piece of sea bass. The wines start at about $100 and go up pretty steep. But all in all if you can afford it, it was a great experience.

This was the "GO TO" restaurant to celebrate special occasions with family and friends. When the Irvine company raised the rent it sadly had to close. This was a HUGE lost for OC diners. Rumor has it they are reopening in the area near the Balboa Bay Resort.
We all look forward to their return.
It was wonderful.

With a name like "Ritz" I thought this would be a very upscale restaurant. However I found the dining room décor very conservative and nice but somewhat crowded. When the food came, it was nothing special. I think Ritz Restaurant is over priced and over rated.
