This was a special pre-Easter
This was a special pre-Easter family get-together.Everything was perfect, from our arrival with valet service, seating, staff, menu, quality of selections and we had a very special experience. Will definitely return and recommend it to all.

Four Seasons excels on salad ...
One of the best tuna nicoise salads I have ever had. The tuna was seared to perfection, and was an ample serving. Rather than bland boiled potatoes, they had perfect squares of potatoe that were sauteed. Green beans were fresh; kalamata olives; and red peppers. The greens were crisp and the dressing was light. Delish!

There are a couple of menues
There are a couple of menues to choose from - one for the restauarant and one for lighter fare - both are great. The waitstaff was outstanding - very attentive. Diver scallops on grits was so very good!!

My husband and I went to Fyve for our wedding anniversary, and we were very happy with the whole experience. The food was outstanding, as was the service. There was so much attention to detail with the food, and everything was better than we expected. They really made it a special occasion for us. The only drawback was the dining room itself. The lighting and the ambiance were not great. But we would definitely recommend it and will go back in the future.

Awesome for Mother's Day
The Mother's Day brunch was spectacular! Everything was delicious from the eggs benedict to the shrimp and crab cocktail with cognac sauce to the belgian waffles with homemade whipped cream. The live jazz added a great ambience and the servers were always nearby with more fresh squeezed orange juice or mimosas. The final elegant touch was every Mother received a fresh flower to wear.

Thanks for providing three old friends a nice, quiet place for our first lunch together in 20+ years.

We had a great experience.
We had a great experience. The food was excellent and the staff was on top of everything, without being intrusive. There was a minor issue with part of our dinner, but the restaurant more than made up for it. All in all, it was a five star experience.

Several times I have had problems with check-in. Waiters on phone and do not acknowledge you. Often told I do not have reservation because they do not take the time to look it up. Was expecting a guest and asked the waiter to keep a look out for her. Another waiter immediately seated her and told her there was no other person waiting for someone without even checking, not did he look up the reservation. We waited for each other in separate dining rooms for over 15 minutes. Not good. I am disabled and use valet parking. It is expensive even with reservations.

Great for dinner and brunch
We made dinner reservations on a Saturday night and basically had the entire restaurant to ourselves. It was very quiet and romantic, and they brought out complimentary dessert because it was my birthday. We came back the next day for brunch, and it was even better than dinner! There was quite a variety of food (all of which was delicious), and brunch came with bottomless mimosas. This is now one of my favorite places in DC. Fyve gets an A++ for great service and excellent food. I will definitely take my out-of-town guests here in the future.

Wedding Anniversary Brunch
Staff was outstanding. We made a reservation for brunch. Hostess greeted us by wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We had a corner table to ourselves without any other guests being seated close to us. Towards the end of our meal a tray with three mini desserts was brought out and a handwritten note in chocolate said "Congratulations" which was a personal touch from the restaurant and the chef. We were very surprised. Very classy restaurant.

A fabulous restaurant
This restaurant is so superbly run. The food is excellent, the ambiance is wonderful for both business meetings and quiet conversations with friends. The service is excellent. I have been served by some of the wait staff for years, and they remain "the best." This time the occasion was for a business lunch. I had an "executive lunch." It was quickly delivered. Wonderful small salad, with a medium size, perfectly cooked salmon fillet, and a small dessert, which was sorbet for me since the two suggested desserts contained cream I couldn't eat.
Will return again next week for another lunch for four friends. Just for fun and good food.

Wonderful Food, Wine, Great Service
We went here for a special birthday. The food was great, wine selections were excellent. I would definitely come back.

We had a meeting of four. We all ordered different items, and they were all delicious. I had the Executive Plate again, like a "bento box." Delicious. The salmon was excellent. The turkey club looked delicious. The person who ate the vegetable wrap said it was very good.. And I forgot what the last person ordered, but they were happy. Once again, the service was excellent. Quick to serve, quiet, though attentive. Very nice time.

Elegance without pretense
The Fyve at the Pentagon City Ritz Carlton was a delightful dining experience. The staff made us feel like VIPs. Food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. Overall, a wonderful evening.

Great food -- alright service
My mom and I went here for a treat and while the food was out of this world (as expected of the Ritz), the waiter was just alright. He was attentive, but brought our entrees before we have even finished our apps -- what were we to do? He also expected us to clear our plates by handing them off to him instead of walking around the table to each person. Overall -- a great food experience -- ehh to the service.

Great Restaurant Week Choice
I chose this place based on the menu options and location since my family is all over the place. I didn't know what to expect for restaurant week, but very glad I landed on Fyve! I ordered the quail, salmon, and a caramel cheesecake as part of the 3 choices I was allowed. My mom ordered a lamb burger and I regret not going with that. Everything was so delicious and I plan to come back!

Restaurant Week Gem
DC restaurant week offered a great way to sample the food and ambiance of a first class restaurant, without breaking the budget!

A friend and I went here for restaurant week and the food was fantastic. Service was excellent. I look forward to returning.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes!
I live nearby, so I decided to try the Ritz for brunch. We did a la carte, and I got the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. SO GOOD. Would definitely recommend them to anyone. Also, their soy lattes are quite good.

Staff was so nice and helpful. The onion soup was amazing!

During an extended stay in
During an extended stay in the Arlington, VA area, we ate there twice. On both visits the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We recommended it to others in our group who also had great experiences.

Ritz keeps it classy
We had such a nice time at the Fyve Restaurant in the Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City. The staff was so nice, starting with the valet - who agreed to keep our car up top during breakfast so we wouldn't have to wait for them to retrieve it after brunch. The restaurant had a beautiful full buffet with eggs, omelets and waffles to order, along with some very tasty bloody marys.

Nice Place -- Attentive Service!
Fyve is what you expect when you eat at a Ritz -- very attentive service, and beautifully served, delicious food. The menu and wine list are not extensive, but certainly good. My husband had the special -- a seafood linguine-- and I had the seared rock fish. Both were excellent. Love the seamless transition from bar to restaurant. We had drinks in the lounge beforehand and they offered to transfer our bar tab to our dinner tab, as well as to carry our drinks to the table. When we told the lounge attendant that we were having dinner in half an hour in the restaurant, she remembered and came to us to ask if we'd like another round or would like to go to our table. The wait staff works well together to make a great experience for the guests.

It was wonderful. Our group included a vegetarian and two foodies. They were all happy with the great selections and quality of the dishes. There were two varieties of caviar, oysters on the half shell, and champaign included. Even a children's buffet.

Though I have dined at Fyve before, this was my first time trying Sunday brunch and as expected it was absolutely delicious! The service was through the roof outstanding and the options on the buffet as well as the plated entrée were wonderful. There was something for every taste and things I had never tried before. Terrific experience, can't wait to have it again!
