I stayed at the Marriott Vacation Club next door but came over to the Ritz to enjoy their lovely bar/patio and view of the ocean. They have a delicious bar menu and wonderful service. It was quite relaxing!

We were guests at the hotel and enjoyed a very nice dinner. The service was a little slow, we ate inside and it seemed like they were short staffed. The food was excellent and much more creative than I expected from a hotel restaurant. Delicious!

The Ritz was horrible on a whole but the Via Luna food across the board was delish! From the must have meatball appetizer to the chocolate nutella beignets I am still dreaming of the food taste and presentation were excellent.

Wonderful, upscale experience just off A1A and the bar scene. Over the top service coupled with exquisitely prepare food. If you have "that one place" you intend to go while in Ft Lauderdale, this is it!

Upscale smart casual to formal. I’m pretty stingy with my FIVE star ratings. This one fully earned.
Not a real busy place. Open and airy, sorta dark. There is outdoor seating with an ocean view – but the street crowd can be kinda wild. Pace is a tiny bit slow, but not bothersome-ly so. Creative and moderately short menu.
Walked in at 8:00 pm on a Friday and were immediately seated.
Perfect service from waiter Anthony.
Wife read a review about some vegetable risotto that someone had – somewhere. Not on menu. Anthony didn't recall it ever being on the menu. Asked her some questions and told her he would accommodate. Her report: spectacular! Who does that at a five star restaurant?
Lamb vegetable soup of the day also spectacular.
My scallops and son’s (teenager) lamb chops were both outstanding.
Desert is not to be skipped. Cheesecake and a fried banana dish = to die for.
Presentation was superior and entrée food accents were creatively delicious.
Portions were very adequate without being overwhelming.
Can you tell I really like this place? I really, really like this place.
Including generous tip we spent $60 pp. No booze. Worth every nickel.
Very highly recommended. I’m for sure going back when in neighborhood again.
