    Service was not good and sea bass was partially raw. Will never go back for dinner. They do a good job for brunch. The staff was absolutely super everywhere else in the hotel. I don't think this Ritz does fine dining.

    My husband and I dined at Lemonia on advice from our daughter. What a wonderful experience! Excellent staff, delicious food and wine plus quiet elegance made our evening perfect. After our meal, we strolled through the Lobby to find a jazz group playing and sat to listen foe awhile. Lovely evening.

    Dined on 2/5/2014
    Our dinner was very relaxing. The server was excellent. He was attentive but not annoying. The appetizers were both salads and were excellent. Very fresh with great tasting dressings and toppings. I had an egg in mine which was cooked to perfection. The main course was the special that day-red snapper. It tasted a bit dry and fishy at times. My guest had the salmon. She didn't comment much but left half uneaten. I took that as a bad sign. We did not order dessert. The wine that we ordered by the glass was excellent. I has a Pino Gris from Willamette Valley Or. My guest had a Pinot Noir that she said was excellent. Overall it was a very pleasant experience yet the food left me feeling less than satisfied.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 12/25/2013
    My family and I have been coming to Lemonia at the Ritz for years and this year I was not impressed. Firstly, I have 4 year old twins who recall Santa and Mrs Claus being there last year handing put candy canes-this year nothing The 24% added gratuity is a bit aggressive in my mind for a party of 4 which includes 2 kids. Every year I find it worst than the year before and for $109 per person plus the 24% gratuity, it is not worth the money

    Expected best of everything at a Ritz, but it was merely good though not too expensive for brunch. It was my wife's birthday so was hoping for Ritz experience but food was just good not amazing like we had at other Ritz's elsewhere. Overall disappointing though price was reasonable- it was not very crowded either- one big group but otherwise not crowded in dining area at a peak time for brunch

    I booked an evening dinner here for my Boyfriends birthday. Unfortunately after booking the dinner I read the trip advisor comments about the restaurant. We have been to this Ritz for lunch but mostly we frequent the beach Ritz. This was our first time having dinner at Lemonia. After reading the reviews I was skeptical about keeping the reservation but I am glad we did. We were seated promptly upon our arrival. Overall the food was fantastic. One of the best meals I have had in Naples. We started with the pumpkin and bacon salad and it was delicious. I had the Pappardelle chicken with wild mushrooms and my boyfriend had the Rib Sliders. My dish was perfect in every way and the meat on the sliders was nice, tender and flavorful. Nice wine

Our server Andrew was a delight who also brought us on a quick tour and suggested we may want to have our nightcaps outside on the veranda overlooking the golf course and under the stars.. great place he also suggested we comeback and try their breakfast/brunch for $25 he said we wont be let down.. looking forward to it will try it this wknd.
