Navio at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay
Mother's Day BrunchI have been to numerous Sunday Brunches including the Del Coronado and this brunch was hands down the best ever. The food was incredible in variety, presentation and taste. The service was fantastic and I never felt like they were trying to turn the table. When we went to get more food our napkin was folded and we had clean silverware. The view from Navio is a perfect view of the 18th fairway and the rugged Northern California coast line with waves crashing over rocks. It was a beautiful day and fantastic food and ambiance.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Birthday DinnerMy Husband and I were here for dinner on Saturday night to celebrate my Husband's Birthday. It was an outstanding dinner with impeccable service. We wouldn't expect anything less from the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay! To top it all off, we saw 2 whales breach out of the water a few times during our dinner. What a wonderful evening!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and greatExcellent service and great view. Food was good but not superb. The server strongly recommended the short rib but the portion is a bit too tiny.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNavio recently underwent aNavio recently underwent a significant renovation which has brightened and lightened the dining space - and has also brought the menu up to a new level.
We had a full meal - two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts. Both the appetizers (beet cured salmon, green garlic soup) and entrees (halibut, rib eye) were excellent, easily surpassing our expectations. The desserts were both good, but could potentially stand to be a quarter smaller.
Service was strong. We will be back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat customerThe food was so good that I went back the next night and ordered the same thing! Outstanding quality!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLooks like Navio's has steppedLooks like Navio's has stepped down its WOW factor. We've dined there many times, but this time was the first time we felt we could have gone elsewhere and received a better experience for the money spent. The bar was out of the first wine selection chosen, there was only one bread selection, there were no special sweets at the end of the meal, and the birthday was not acknowledged, even though it was mentioned. Considering the amount we spent on dinner, the WOW factor which used to be there definitely did not appear this time. We will probably try again later in the year, but will be looking for alternatives for the big celebrations.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AM41st AnniversaryThe food was fabulous! The service could not have been better. It was no doubt the best experience we have ever enjoyed, at a buffet style, dining. The ambiance of the ocean and surrounding area was a plus.
The experience of our 41st Anniversary at the Ritz Carlton, will never be forgotten!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI have never had better.I have never had better. I didn't ask the price so was surprised to see the bill but the food and service were superior.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
