Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I went there with our 15 month old and we had an excellent time. The server was attentive, friendly and very accomodating with our requests. We sat next to the piano and music area and even though we were right next to them, the noise level was approapriate where you could still carry on a normal conversation. The food/tapas we had were outstanding. Try the chicken meatballs with peanut sauce,,, they are so delicious and so are the ceviche tacos. We ordered 4 tapas plates and it was enough. Cant say more good things about this place. This hotel, service and the food are what every hotel chain in the world should strive for = Excellent."

  • "We really enjoy this special setting at the Ritz in Naples. The food, service, and our setting on the sofa is very special. We have always been treated so well and love our time together. Make it happen whenever you can but we try to do it each month."

  • "We live near the Ritz and occasionally go there when guests are visiting. Last week we took a good friend to Bites and were very pleased with the entire experience. The small plates menu is not only perfect for sharing, but the food is wonderful on every level. Rich flavors and wonderful presentation. It was a delightful evening made all the sweeter because of the very talented musicians playing that evening. They had the perfect blend that provided fun and nostalgia at an appropriate volume. We'll be back more often!"

  • "we have had wonderful meals here before, however, this time there was confusion and all of our orders came at once, even though we requested that it not be done. Then when we got the later orders, they tasted like they had been held. Normally we give 5 stars for eating here, this just wasn't their usual performance."

  • "Bites was fine. Some of the dishes were good, others were not. The ambiance is the best part. The service was very slow; don't go if you are on a schedule (i.e. Have a babysitter). Can't say I would recommend...there are better places to spend time/money. The prices were not bad, though, but it is not much food per dish."

  • "We've dined here multiple times over the past three years...just inside the lobby at the Ritz. Mutliple items on the menu including short rib sliders, steak and frites, fried green tomato, salads, sea bass...all in smaller portions that we frequently share. They have their own wines, but we usually ask for the full list from the Ritz Carlton Grill which has a great list. Typically we've had the same server-Mary who is just excellent and a real tribute to the Ritz. If you make reservations, ask for her as she pays great attention to the guests."

  • "Only the Ritz could pull off this fabulous tapas restaurant. Ideal for a special occasion but you don't need one to go. Great food and cocktails and exceptional Ritz service."

  • "Bites at the Ritz is a wonderful date night, special occasion night. The ambiance is wonderful and you can see everything that is going on around you. The food is very good, but I felt that the portions were a bit too big. For me, it would be better to have smaller portions, so that you could try more things. You get pretty full after 3 items each."

  • "The night we went the restaurant was not very busy although we went during the busy season. Perhaps the service is the reason why. The food came out pretty slow. But more importantly, our server did not come back to our table after each dish was served to see if everything came out ok or if we needed anything else. After the last dish was delivered it was at least 10 minutes before we saw him again. We would have ordered another dish and probably dessert as well but, with no service, we had enough and asked for our check. Too bad, it's a fun concept."

  • "We have been to Bites a number of times over the past few years. The service is always excellent, the ambiance created by the talented latin duo in the beautiful Ritz lobby is first class and if you like interesting small plate dishes well plated and tasty you have a winner. This time we has just received our drinks and ordered a few dishes when the fire alarm sounded. We were asked to leave and waited outside for about 20 minutes. When we returned our waiter indicated we would be looked after, I was kind of expecting a few free drinks or something as we had not even started our meal. In any event we had a leisurely dinner with quite a few more cocktails, when it came time for the bill we were told it was all looked after. Now thats class."

  • "Went with my mother. The Ritz has done a great job to make you feel like you are not in the lobby but in a restaurant. There are no walls that divide the restaurant from the lobby but it's nice. Food was great. Wonderful service"

  • "From the moment we entered the area, the server was perfect; she gave us advice, which although we did not heed, we appreciated. She knew when to offer help, when to step back and not interfere with conversation. The tempo was good - not too fast or slow. At desert time a candle was placed in our celebrant's cake, the piano played Happy Birthday, the whole area sang to him. He was pleasantly surprised. The music trio was fabulous all evening. We felt special and well attended to by all greeters, servers, etc. All in all a wonderful evening. It was expensive, but worth the price."

  • "This was our third visit to Bites. Loved the first two; this was different. Timing of food was inconsistent; I myself waited fifteen min. for my first plates after my other diners had some of theirs. Some dishes were excellent:.the chicken biscuit was wonderful and the shrimp pot stickers were great as well. Steak was too well done. We had to ask for bread to be brought to the table. And the whole experience was SLOW. There were many empty tables and the restaurant was about 30 percent full. The last straw was waiting 20 min for blueberry cobbler, which I had to order because it's a personal favorite. It was cold. They hadn't been baking it or anything. The serve never came by or I would have sent it back. Overall, not a Ritz evening."

  • "My parents and I had dinner at Bites. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and checked in with the hostess who said our table was ready. We asked if it would be ok if we went outside to see the spectacular Naples sunset first. Not only did she promise to hold our table, she took us outside to show us the best viewing spot. It's been a long time since I have experienced the kind of service offered by the hostess and the wait staff at the Ritz. Above and beyond! The food was delicious and the ambiance (lounge lobby) was fun and upbeat. We look forward to going there again when I visit next year."

  • "Service, atmosphere and food are everything you would expect at a Ritz Carlton. The guitar music and vocals added a nice background for a relaxing evening. Perfect spot for being able to relax and chat."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "excellent small plates, although many of them are not really Spanish (steak tartare, mussels mariniere). the lobby location makes it a very "buzzy" spot to watch people coming and going in the hotel. service can be intrusive in this type of restaurant, with the delivery and removal of many small dishes, but not here. it was smooth and perfectly timed. this was my second visit here. I will be back again."

  • "Ok, I have done the Bites thing before and I enjoy so much about it. I love the menu, the ambience, the entertainment..........it's just relaxing and a fun, food experience. On last week's particular night, the pace of the meal was way too slow......No one wants to be rushed, that's for sure, but this was agonizingly slow......long, long lags between "bites". The wait staff seemed young and very inexperienced. The room was not too full, so they should not have been overwhelmed. I don't know really what happened, but we were there from 5:30 to 9:15 and then waited a really long time for our check to be presented and then a really long time for the transaction to be completed."

  • "We enjoyed a evening with friends sitting around on comfortable couches, listening to lovely background music and enjoying small bites. Only complaint was that 2 of the glasses of wine had significant sediment . When we brought this to our server's attention, he explained this often happens with wine. Given the high prices of very average wine, we think the Ritz could educate its staff properly and know how to correct the situation by at least offering another sediment free glass!"

  • "We took our son and his girlfriend for my son's 21st birthday. Every choice on the tapas style menu was delicious. We happened to mention when ordering dessert that it was his birthday, and the waiter arrived with the dessert plus 4 delicious cupcakes and a white chocolate "birthday card". Such a wonderful surprise! My son the culinary student took pictures of several of the dishes and posted them on Facebook :)"

  • "My sisters and I were having a ladies night out that evening. We had such an amazing evening and the most wonderful and fresh food! the music was upbeat and fun. The ambiance was very relaxing. We stayed out much longer than we anticipated because we didn't want he evening to end. Our server Corbin was absolutely fantastic! Very friendly & courteous and was on top of our food and drinks getting us all anything we needed the entire evening. I will be recommending that all of my friends and family request him as their waiter from now on!"
