A late dinner here at the Conservatory inside of the Ritz- Carlton is laid back, casual and good eats and a fine bottle of Dumol Chardonnay for us. Didn’t feel like dressing up so we went in as we were. A cheese and meat plate...More

This restaurant is super expensive but who cares; the people staying at the Ritz are paying $500-800 a night on their room so I guess they can pay $28 for eggs, sausage, and potatoes. Our service wasn't very good as the waiter said, "sorry sir...More

For an upscale dining experience thought everything was o.k. but certainly not exceptional. The ambiance was average though the restaurant had some good views. We were at a table nearest the bar so our views were a little limited. Felt the food was a little...More

I love the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay Hotel. This restaurant in the hotel serves average food and is definitely overpriced for the quality. If you want casual lunch fare, walk less than one block to Mulligans Restaurant at the Golf Clubhouse. I ordered the...More

Went to bar to get a drink to take up to the room (we are staying at the Ritz). Decent Rye selection, so asked the bartender if he had the bitters to make a Sazarac. To his credit, he said he only had Angostura. So...More

The presentation of the food was nice except the food quality was less than expected. The braised short ribs I ordered was chewy and stringy. The preparation of the salad my wife ordered was drenched in salad dressing. She took 2 to 3 bites and...More
