  • Review of Bistro One LR at Ritz-Car
    Yassie
    Dined on 5/16/2013
    My husband, my son and I had dinner at the Bistro One LR at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach in Miami Beach on Thursday May 16, 2013 . We chose the al fresco poolside seating with a beautiful breeze from the Atlantic Ocean and we savoured some seafood dishes; the Paella Valenciana and the Pan Roasted Turbot. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Our server was very polite and accommodating and he gave us excellent service too and he needs to be highly commended too.

    Perfect all you can drink mimosas, champagne, bloody marys (my personal favorite). The servers at all levels were incredibly gracious and helpful and would remember what you were drinking! The dessert is super intense after an all-you-can eat brunch (with crab/seafood bar!!) The only downside were the playing/screaming kids outside by the pool... with squirt guns. But you can sit inside and keep your distance!

    It is hard to complain about sitting pool side overlooking the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. However the food was just average. Menu was not very creative and the wine list was very limited. Our server was outstanding which helped saved the evening. We would not recommend Bistro 1 LR as there are so many great restaurants on South Beach.

    A good choice for brunch, and quite affordable for a family with children like mine... I loved everything, from the sushi table, to the barbecue table outside, to the gourmet cheeses and cutlet offerings, and the sweets were the best. I couldn't have hoped for more... Plus the service was attentive. All in all, you get all the bang for your buck...

    Each year in October, I attend the FO conference and look forward to the amazing Sunday brunch at The Ritz in South Beach that I reserve for either business or pleasure, more pleasure really. A unique brunch feasting an exquisite selection of international flavors, meant to be enjoyed without stress and with plenty of time to sample all you can while sipping champagne endlessly. I am still looking for a Sunday brunch worldwide which could topple the No.1 spot this one holds in my book.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Sunday brunch at the Ritz should be your go-to place for a special occasion. Or to simply treat yourself just because. The service is impeccable--the staff is attentive and anticipates your needs. The brunch buffet is a culinary delight. Plan to stay the full 3 hours to sip mimosas and blood Marys, eat everything from sushi to grilled grouper to red velvet cupcakes and watch the beautiful people poolside. You will leave satisfied and happy.

    We were many times in Ritz- and it was my favourite place for brunch !! But this time it was a "flop".No suggestions from the waiter for tea or coffee to finish our meal.And when I saw that he added to the bill two bottles of water.... Nothing to add.( if the management of restaurant wants to take any actions, I can provide the waiter's name)We were in Ritz only 4 weeks before and the service was really great.The amount of caviar that is served is diminishing extensively!

    Ritz-Carlton quality food. Excellent service. We had dinner there on a Saturday night; yet, the restaurant was quiet, with few patrons. The menu was limited in its choices, and the wine list was undistinguished. The atmosphere and the setting was just fair. It is obvious that this Ritz-Carlton hotel was re-branded from another, less elegant hotel(s) in its past. Still, the food was well-prepared and presented.

    Bistro One LR offers an excellent brunch in a relaxing atmosphere. If you enjoy upscale dinning without the stuffy demeanor, than this is just the place for you. If you are coming for the beef, make sure to call ahead, as it was not on the carving station this week. The included vodka bar made up for any short comings. Bistro One LR overlooks the pool and has great views of South Beach. Great staff, excellent service. We were pleasantly surprised to find we were overdressed; next time golf shorts and a nice polo will suffice. Highly recommended!

    Ok...before I write this, know its the Ritz Carlton and prices are going to be expensive, I get that BUT when paying $20 (I think it was $22) for a chicken wrap at lunch I'd expect a little more than a wrap with over dressed bottle BBQ sauce and cheap frozen french fries. The wine list is greatly over priced, and yes, I mean over priced by luxury South Beach loctions. There are a hundred better options within walking distance. Don't waste your time there. If you want to enjoy their beautiful view stick with some cocktails outside.

    Quite disappointed by this restaurant in the new South Beach Ritz Carlton. Menu was very pedestrian and ordinary and physically difficult to read. Server was inexperienced. The wrong entrees were delivered - they were meant for another table. Our first wine choice was not available. The monkfish was rubbery and served lukewarm and the steak was overdone (ordered medium rare). My first clue that this was not going to be a gastronomic experience should have been the fact that the place was almost empty at 7:30 Saturday night. The location is wonderful, but the concept of what this restaurant is trying to attain needs to be rethought.

    I enjoyed everything about the meal at Bistro One. Of course, the lobby and mezzanine of the Ritz are both stunningly beautiful, so that starts things of well. The pool was beautifully lit;because we dined early enough, were one of only a handful of tables able to enjoy the quiet romantic flavor of that lovely space. The new menu, though limited, is creative, and was well executed by Chef Felipe. My meal of Galician octopus and potatoes, followed by rack of lamb; both were absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared.My dinner companions were equally pleased with their meals. We had the pleasure of being served by Serhan, who was ably assisted by an enthusiastic team of companions. A great night all around.
