What else would you expect from the Ritz!?!?? THE BEST BURGER EVER! So delicious. Dan was an amazing server / bar-tender. We chatted with the couple across the bar. A glass (or 2) of Ramey really hit the spot! A fun place in a really nice hotel!!! I highly recommend it!!!

The food was just average. I was really hoping for more. A lot of the online food descriptions were missing such as the cavier, sushi, and crab Benedict. It was a nice ambience for Easter but definitely wouldn't pay the $$$ for it again. Honestly, I would probably skip this restaurant all together while in San Francisco. The service was... More

The food, the service, the warmth, everything was simply perfect. Our server was Zack, very nice. My kid has lots of food allergies and he tried his best to accommodate our dietary needs.

This is the first time that we have done a 'chef's table' and it was terrific. There were only four of us (the table could accommodate 10 but they restrict it to one party). Upon arrival, we had a custom drink at one of the nicest bars I have ever seen. We then got a tour of the kitchen with... More

We dined here as a family three times over the last couple of years. This is the hotel restaurant for the Ritz Carlton San Francisco. It is a nice enough place. Food is below the standard it should be. At best average. Service is average. Not recommended. Eat on Club level it's better. We now walk up the hill for... More

This hotel restaurant is simply fantastic. Amazing breakfast buffet, everything is splendid and superbly made. The ingredients are divine. The fruits are rich, the oranges are perfect. Everything here is fresh and well prepared.

After a couple of salad meals in the lounge, we were looking forward to Parallel 37. We have dined in great restaurants all over the world and sadly felt let down by this one.

Went down for cocktails and a snack to hide from the unruly children on the club level. Staff is great, with a very good wine and beer selection. Food was very good.
