Bites at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples
For small tastes and “tradition enhanced,” stop by the recently updated Lobby Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples to experience Bites, the new Lobby Lounge menu. Guests may enjoy sampling smaller portions of tempting cuisine inspired by The Grill menu, including mini crab cakes, beef short rib sliders and shrimp pot stickers along with an award-winning wine list and cocktails. Open nightly from 5 to 10 p.m. with live musical
entertainment every night.
"The music will be a blend of contemporary styles with an accent on the colorful music of the Latin Americas."
What a fabulous evening. Marlina our server was fantastic. Our first time and she made us feel welcome and never rushed us. Drinks were outstanding and small bites delish . The highlight was The Guy Fasciani trio. Truly great Jazz band. Guy is 84 years young and what a talent. A memorable evening for sure. Can’t wait to visit agsin❤️👏
Birthday and they made it special esp our waiter Martine😃
Excellent experience, the service was fabulous, food delightful and the music amazing and brought it all together to mak it a night to remember.
We celebrated my wife's birthday at Bites, as we have in past years. Just a great experience and pleasant people. Plan to do this again.
It was a spur of the moment decision to go to Bites at the Ritz-Carlton. It was serendipity working at its absolute best. The service was fantastic. The small plates were truly wonderful. I had the steak and frites. Perfectly done. My wife had the BBQ sliders. Again great. This was a great place for a quiet light meal. We were here on vacation and will probably return for the full R-C experience.
Always wonderful. The ambiance is always beautiful and perfect setting for special occasions.
Service was outstanding. Very attentive and you can tell the staff was well trained. They referred to us as mr or mrs.
My one complaint was the salad. Although I know it is tapas, there was an embarrassing amount in 3 little jars that
Basically was a forkful or 2 from each jar. At $14 dollars kind of silly, but the sliders and steak and fries were very worth the $18 or $20
Always a go to place when we have guests. Service is impeccable. Small plates are small and pricey but ambience and service plus music makes a very nice experience.
Excellent service and fun evening.
Always good. wonderful music. Great service. Fair valiue.
Steak was overdone.
New menu not as good.
Light dinner in piano bar atmosphere
Our sixth or seventh time there and always pleased. Only negative was being seated near eight very excitable ladies. Highly recommend.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The menu is great. The wine list is wonderful. The service is second to none.
The only negative comment is the music. It was too loud and it would have been nice to have soft romantic music for valentine dinner. Love Bites restaurant and looking forward to go back.
The music was fantastic and the main reason for our visit. We really appreciated Jenn who greeted us and made us feel like family from the confirmation phone call to our arrival and throughout the evening. She truly represents the best-in-class Ritz Carlton philosophy. We didn’t feel that with our server. Unfortunately, her immediate “No” responses to our “exception request” as well as the Chef’s same response was a big turn off. We NEVER experienced this at a Ritz Carlton and were taken aback. No warm and fuzzy family feeling from them. Other servers seemed much more customer-oriented and KIND, but we did not get that feeling. Our past experiences over the last 2-5 years were quite the opposite. Food was very good but most choices were a little too rich- and we sampled quite a few. Could use more creative, healthy choices. But the jazz trio made up for everything! Worth the trip because of them!!
Nice service from Carlene.
Date and business meeting with my wife! The food was delicious and The service from our waitress was amazing!
We always enjoy the ambience and music , along with the detailed attention that we receive. Wonderful way to celebrate a birthday!
Thoroughly enjoyed the evening except for the loud music. It was very hard to talk with that noise level. Background music would be so much nicer.
The staff here always does a terrific job. Good in all aspects- music, food, service,....
Great Service, Great staff
Not very cozy for groups larger than 4
probably better for couples
good for casual light dinning
Always a good experience. Always a good experience.
A terrible experience!!!!! The chef prepared one scallop burned so badly it was crusty and black. The other scallop was white, as if not cooked. The server was very poor.
Great place over the holidays among all Cmas decorations and wonderful service Very cheery
Service was not the standard you would expect at the Ritz.
Always treated like family. The food and service is outstanding! Our home away from home...
Love it there. Music was a little too loud & louder then last visit. It is still one of my favorite places to spend an evening. Service & food is outstanding. Such a beautiful place to enjoy. If a local you must go. If visiting hopefully you are staying at the Ritz but you don’t need to. You can make it a stop while in town.
Best romantic spot on the planet!
On our annual visit to see the gingerbread house, we usually stop at Bites. We sat at the far end of the room since the entertainment was too loud. The staff are very "Ritz pleasant" and accommodating. However, our server made a few mistakes -- forgot sweetener for my coffee and took very long to return to the table to settle the bill. One diner ordered the carrot hummus and found it to be too sweet. Our bread pudding was scrumptious. The other customers were quite pleasant and most wore dinner jackets. Overall, a very enjoyable evening. See you next year!
Had a fabulous time with friends and family. So exceptionally beautiful around the holidays too. We will be back soon.
The restaurant was beautiful for Christmas. The tree is amazing. The gingerbread house is unbelievable. The food and wine was great. It was busy and the service was a little slower than usual, but we enjoyed ourselves. We will return soon.
Great night wonderful music and delicious food a terrific combination.
I would recommend this restaurant to every one who is love.
Great place to sit and people watch! Nestled in the lobby of the Ritz Beach this restaurant is a beautiful setting at Christmas time. This is the perfect place for drinks and sharing small plates. We had the charcuterie, shrimp and chicken. All delicious!! The live music was beautiful and Jenny, the hostess, could not have been sweeter. Fun place to eat! Great photo ops for Christmas cards by the huge tree and life sized gingerbread house 😊
Always a fabulous experience at the Ritz!
We come yearly at the beginning of December to see the Gingerbread House and other decorations and then have dinner at Bites. Always a special occasion that we enjoy.
Decorated for the Holidays. Gingerbread house amazing. Six gals went for special coffee drinks and desserts. Fabulous Bread Pudding.
This was a special treat for my husband and me. Martin was amazingly kind, attentive and made us feel like royalty. thanks so much for a a wonderful few hours at Bites.
