Bizcaya - The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Not open

    Dined on 2/9/2014
    This restaurant is not open for dinner but reservations were accepted on OpenTable. Not the service I would expect from OpenTable or the Ritz. Ratings don't count because we had to make other plans for dinner that night. Thankfully the bartender at the Ritz was very helpful.

    This was a pop up restaurant that we wish would remain as a permanent restaurant. The Indian cuisine was the best we've ever had at a restaurant. Compliments to Chef Ramesh Kaduru. The service staff were friendly and very competent. It was a wonderful dining experience.

    A group of friends and I had heard about this pop up restaurant and decided to try it out. We definitely do not regret it. What an amazing and outstanding experience. Out staff was attentive and pleasant. The food was succulent! Wonderfully spicy and rich. Chef Ramesh came out a number if times to make sure we were having a good time. We not only had a great time but we will sure to be back!

    This is a pop-up restaurant, just for the month of October, until November 3rd. The food was very good and the ambiance incredible. The decoration makes you feel in India and women has complimentary henna tattoos. But what makes the experience incredible was the kindness and attention all the staff have with you. Highly recommended.

    Went for Christmas Eve Dinner and were disappointed. Had gone a couple years ago and it was wonderful so had great expectations. The Staff was polite and even though the meal tasted great the Christmas eve menu lacked imagination. You either had beef or vegetarian. It just wasn't a Wow menu.

    NOT A RITZ CARLTON WORTHY RESTAURANT WHATSOEVER!!! THEY SET UP A FEW TABLES IN THE LOBBY AND HAD A DJ NEXT TO THE DINING TABLES. THE MENU IS NOT WHAT IS POSTED ON THEIR WEBSITE. MY WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE EVER! REALLY!!! P.S. I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN A BAD REVIEW ON OPEN TABLE UNTIL NOW.

  • Bizcaya a NO NO for "brunch"
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/8/2012
    I was disappointed with the brunch at Bizcaya. When I hear brunch I expect a wide selection of food and a chef present making fresh breakfast. The options we had were watered down eggs, dry bacon, and some cut fruits. My husband ended up ordering from a separate menu a burger. The only thing worth the trip are the chocolate croissants. Overall its a beautiful hotel but not worth the drive for "brunch".

    We've been to the Sunday brunch before, which is always a wonderful experience, but it was over the top extra special on Mother's day! The brunch was actually held in the ball room with live music, endless mimosas and even a children's activity room! So glad we went!

    Dined on 4/8/2012
    We made a reservation for Easter Sunday brunch and, upon arrival, it was suggested that the buffet brunch, in the Ballroom, would be a better option for us. It was a great suggestion: the food was excellent, with all kinds of quality options. While the place was packed, the lace was not noisy and a live music show made the setting more pleasant. The only minus: the ballroom has no outside windows, so we couldn't benefit from the beautiful Sunday in Coconut Grove.

    The pasta dish featured in the Miami Spice menu was terrible. The pasta itself felt stale, the ribs enveloped in it 1 of the 3 pieces was grease rather than meat, and the tomatoe sauce was half cooked. In contrast the appetizer (octopus) was delicious.The music in the background did not match the ambiance.The service was very good, despite these issues.

    Opted for the Bizcaya at the Ritz in the Grove as oppossed to Cioppino's at the Ritz in Key Biscayne simple because of time constraints on this particular day. The last time I was here, maybe 2 or 3 years, I remembered it not being nearly as lavish as Key Biscayne and told myself I would not make that mistake again, well I did. Limited offerings, slow service and worse than 3 years ago. No Bellinis or Bloody Mary's available for cocktails, Mimosa's only we were told. Don't make the mistake of substuting this brunck for the Ritz in the Key, it's worth the extra 20 minute drive!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 7/3/2011
    Some of the food at the buffet was sub-par, such as the oysters and caviar. The rest of the food was generally good, but not worth the price. The ambiance is nice, however, I I prefer the ambiance at the Biltmore brunch. Biltmore's brunch is outdoors in a lovely courtyard. Bizcaya is indoors (though there is outdoor seating, but it is hot and there are no fans that I could see) in an upscale dining room.

    The food is excellent--from the caviar, to the omelet station and the prime rib--the side dishes. I have been three times now and every time has been wonderful and cherished by all. I only wish the desserts would be a little better--I am a chocolate cake connoisseur and I feel the Ritz could definitely produce a far more amazing one than the ones put out. I love the chocolate dipping sauce and the array of "dessert shooters" to choose from, but I feel the chocolate cake should be AMAZING. Again, the staff is always very courteous and attentive and we will all come back as often as we can. Thank you.

    Dined on 8/13/2010
    We made a reseervation through Open Table but when we arrived, the restaurant was empty. We were eventually told that dinner was being served only in a lobby lounge - on Friday night? We we were seated there, next to a floor to ceiling window facing a non-functioning fountain obscured by a huge temporary scaffolding. The wines "by the glass" selection was overpriced as expected and improperly stored (unexpected). We waited 30 minutes between each appearance by the server. My wine was warm and sent back. Can't even remember the food, but it wasn't great or bad. It's a shame because we'd been to this Ritz and had a good experience a couple of years ago. This is why there are no five star establishments in Miami. Not recommended.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 3/7/2010
    Beautiful room, good champagne. Seafood station was good. Steam table dishes were mediocre, as they always are. Cooked fresh would have been better. The chef station could have produced a fluffier, more tasty omelet. Belgian waffles without chocolate? Really?!? The guitar player was amped; didn't need to be in that size room, with marble floors. An acoustic set would have been more mellow. Overall, a good brunch experience. I'll probably try a few others in the city, though, before I come back.
