Located directly in the lobby BITES is a "tapas" style restaurant. Steak with the bearnaise sauce was excellent. Drinks are expensive (as to be expected) but the food we ordered was delicious and good portions when sharing. The jazz was a nice touch but Antoinette really made the experience great. She was professional, personable, and explained the menu well. Good... More

We never ate in a Tapas restaurant but were delighted to enjoy a meal at Bites. We had a number of small plates including meatballs, shrimp, olives, cheese and artichokes. The bread was delicious. All in all a great meal - with great service!

Our only holiday tradition - Christmas Eve @ The Ritz lobby bar! Lovely tree, sweet gingerbread house, big black teddy bears (for photo ops); live background music. Almost too-exotic bar menu; went with the Steakhouse Sliders with too-much-for-a-bar 12-layer chocolate cake. Enjoyed the lovely service, and being amongst family/friends meeting up for Christmas cheer.

Bites is a tapas restaurant in the lobby of the Ritz. The food and service were very good. Our favorite part was the piano player. It is a nice restaurant to visit while in Naples.

What a great spot to have a drink. Such an inviting atmosphere. The small "bites" are quite delicious. And make sure you ask to sit in Antoinette's section! She is a remarkable talent that is perfectly attentive regardless of how busy she is.

we went to Bites at the Ritz as we had heard it was very good. Valet parking was straightforward even though they were busy due to guests arriving from the east coast to avoid the hurricane. Bites is the hotels lobby lounge and we were seated by the hostess immediately. The cocktail, Cucumber Cooler was perfectly made. We ordered snacks... More

We decided to visit Bites after having a bit too many hors d'oeuvres in the club lounge earlier so just wanted to get something to nibble on. We stopped by here around 9pm.

NOT MUCH TO SAY (SEE BELOW) It is not cheap, obviously but who cares, you want cheap dining go somewhere else. However, affordable elegance and great sharing food, as only Ritz Carlton can do. May I quote: "A menu design hat is hot amd cold"
