    Went just prior to sunset and sat outside. Great view of ocean and resort. Service was great and food was as you'd expect at a restaurant of this statute. Portions were filling, but not overwhelming. After dinner, you can check out the beach and walk around the resort or enjoy a post dinner drink at one of the bars. Overall a top notch experience.

    We had an amazing brunch with excellent service from Karen. It was Father's Day and very busy but the quality of the experience did not decline. I was surprised to see Prosecco being served instead of champagne. For $105 a person ,a quality champagne should be offered to guests. Besides that, I was pleased with the dining experience.

    This restaurant is located at the Ritz Key Biscayne. Gorgeous location/views, however, the food is average+, while the prices are not. Had dinner here one night, nest drove to SOBE to Prime112, and last night to Rusty Pelican. Better choices.

    Perfect weather, star-lit evening, Miami at its best. A beautiful hidden gem this lovely place suited us all, young and old. And the staff went out of their to accommodate our wheel -chaired father. Bravo to you all. The food was delicious, served beautifully, the waiter was exceptional. Even with a very large party to our right and a family of four with two young children to our left, it was very calm and relaxing, the waiters moving smoothly between us all. Looking forward to a return visit.

    BroncoVIP
    Dined on 5/3/2014
    I was quite disappointed with what I thought was going to be a first class dining experience. Service was extremely poor, too much time passed before water, bread, reached the table. More time to take cocktail orders and still more time to open bottle of wine brought in from my cellar. Food was poor. One guest complained so much, the item was removed from my bill. I was embarrassed. The wine corkage fee was not discussed, but turned out to be the higheast I have ever paid, $45 per bottle. Overall, not a good experience and I shall not return!

    Dined on 10/4/2013
    A magical atmosphere, but sadly not hitting the same note with the food. We have been faithful Cioppino patrons for years and have seen a significant decline in the menu and food in the past year. Spending a pretty penny on dinner, you would like your meal-taste to match your setting, especially when you're at the Ritz. Service is always outstanding, and if you're having any type of fish you can bet on it to be caught that day. Beautiful restaurant inside and out, just needing to refine a few things - big & small.

    went with my dad for brunch. this place was outstanding. the food was very fresh and varied. I have been to brunches where they limit the caviar. here, it was all you could eat. I am a foodie and am very picky about the presentation of the food. the meals are prepared in small quantities and are replaced constantly. so, you never have food that has been sitting out there for hours. I thought it was a great value for the money since specialty coffees are also included along with bloody mary and mimosas. I would definitely go here again. the service was great too.

    At the Ritz, service should be the best. Miami's laid back latin style may clash with this a little but they did a good, if not excellent job of service when my gf and I had dinner a couple of nights ago. The live guitar player was nice from where we were sitting but given the volume I wouldn't have wanted to be nearer unless I'd had a row with my wife. Vitello tonnata, Branzino, and Veal escallope were all excellent. I thought the wine list could have been better (more extensive).

    This is our go to place for brunch and special occasions. Very pricey, but worth it. The food is top notch. The only complaints are the way the food and desserts are bunched together. It's not as spread out as it used to be and the dessert offerings have been cut back. We also noted that the champagne quality was not as good. Service was customer friendly, but we had to bus our own table at times, and the server poured half glasses of mimosas. Great birthday desserts though. Very nice. Service is just not as attentive as it once was. But special requests were honored by the chefs. All in all, we are fans. The property is beautiful and gorgeous views. An oasis.

    With a view of the Atlantic Ocean and the feeling of being in the tropics, Cioppino is a wonderful setting, the food and service were the crowning acheivement. The food with an Italian flare was very good and would satisfy the most discriminating palate. Wine list could be more extensive for my taste but they had a nice selection. Service went out of their way to make sure your every need was taken care of. Don't miss the Sunday brunch for every kind of food you can think of, it's truly amazing.
