  • Very expensive Sunday brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    Considering we don't drink alcohol, the Sunday brunch was extremely expensive for 2 people with tax and automatic gratuity added in, total $200. We wanted to try a proper Sunday brunch buffet though with a larger spread than other smaller brunches in the area. The food was above average. Service was how it should be at a Ritz property--very accommodating, attentive, professional. I wouldn't be in a hurry to head back just for the value since we don't take advantage of the alcohol included. But for those who consume alcohol, it's a nice Sunday buffet.

    We were a group trying to find a place to eat and decided to try Bistro One LR since they had a good looking miami spice menu. We were pleasantly surprised with every dish superb and the service was excellent. We had a wonderful evening and definitely with return!!

    This was my second time for brunch at this location and both were really great. I was hoping for an upgraded menu for mother's day since the price is increased 30% but it was the same as my first time two months ago. Anyways it is absolutely worthy . My mother, myaunt and my sister in law loved the experience. Service is outstanding as always at theRitz

    I was so hoping for a good experience, I mean it's the RITZ!! Food was terrible, rack of lamb tough, with a terrible sweet potato puree, tasted like baby food. Compared to other hotels in the area, the Ritz was shabby and outdated. Such a disappointment compared to Ritz Carlton's in other cities.

    The food was so nice, but it hadn't that "wow". And I am afraid the service didn't reach the pricetag at all... on a restaurant like this you do not expect the plate from the apetizer to remain on your table for the whole meal, or having to ask for knife and fork when the entré arrives. He did not refill our wineglasses once. He was very nice, but I guess just do not have the know-how for this type of restaurant. The food so nice, but I'm afraid not value for the Money.

    Luciana
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    Went here for the special NYE dinner and party package and found - unexpectedly - a very disorganised management which left us sitting at a table with little to no attention. The waiter was lovely and tried his best - but that was the problem, there was only one waiter. The food was good but not on par with Ritz or matching how expensive it was (which ended up being excessive, cost to quality/value ratio). Poor organisation overall and lack of good enough service, on top of having our 2nd course missed entirely off a fixed 4th course menu. Very disappointed.

    This place has it all, and we even found the prices reasonable for the quality of food and the great atmosphere. Dining outside by the dimly lit pool is really pleasant, with hip lighting and relatively subdued music. The lamb was exceptionally tasty; I don't normally gnaw on my lamb bones, but I made an exception for this wonderful dish. Service was excellent. Downstairs is another bar area with live music.

    Excellent seafood !! champagne was great but the champagne flutes were not cold,great environment , many choices, the desserts were phenomenal.my family loved it and I did enjoy it a lot. The decoration of the restaurant was beautiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody who enjoys quality food and try different dishes in one place. The server was very nice and polite always making sure that everything was great. It was the best thanksgiving dinner in years!Keep the excellent quality of the seafood specially the sushi section. Need to have champagne glasses cold before serving champagne. The hostess at the entrance needs to move things around faster so customers are not waiting 20 minutes after the reservation time.

    We enjoyed our dining experiences at Bistro I while on vacation in South Beach immensely. The Sunday brunch was fabulous. My daughter especially loved the tres leches and selection of fresh fruit, Bistro I offers a casual atmosphere although the presentation of foods was elegant. I appreciated the attentiveness of the personnel who waited on us. They made us feel comfortable and welcome. Once food was served, the waiters returned to ensure that the food was to our liking. Our dining experience at Bistro I was everything we thought it should be. We will definitely return and recommend the restaurant to our friends,

    We were extremely disappointed with the cuisine. I had a burrata salad which was tasteless to say the least. I have had much better quality cheese at a more reasonable price. The wines did not come close to any that are offered at a wine bar and they were more expensive. This is a typical hotel restaurant. Very disappointing. I would never return.
