One waiter constantly bumped, kicked, or slapped my chair each time he walked by (poor training). The noise level is loud, with screaming children of non-attendant parents in the lobby, and this evening, a constant flow of groups taking pictures up in the restaurant in front of the large Christmas tree. The mushroom Wellington (meatless) is wonderful. The meatball are nothing special. Service was average. $115 for 1 appetizer, 3 small tapas, and 4 drinks (3 glasses of wine and 1 martini) seemed just a bit high for an open lobby restaurant.

My wife and I dine at Bites about once a month and our latest experience was again a very good one, with creative food and service (Mary was our server) that was excellent.

We had a delightful evening at Bites. Of course the Ritz Carlton is a beautiful setting, and the food we ordered was delicious. We started with the guacamole, there was plenty to share for the two of us. Then we had the steak bernaise with fries, and the grouper with ancient grains. Both were prepared to perfection. The young woman who played and sang at the piano was very talented!! All in all a perfect evening.

Once again Bites was delightful. The tapas style cuisine comes in bite size and intricately made portions. The dishes go from simple to more complex but all prepared with equal attention. The staff is attentive but unobtrusive. We’ll be back...again.

Delicious food as always and outstanding service.We took our 2 grandkids ages 6 and 3 and Joseph, one of our favorite waiters, gave them each a cute stuffed dolphin. They wanted to go back the next day again. The kids enjoyed their food, especially the chocolate chip cookie.

The quality of the food and service is excellent. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The portions are smaller so that you can try multiple dishes. The music is wonderful. Great place for a romantic dinner.

Our experience was memorable. It was to celebrate a birthday and the setting, service and food could not have been better. While pricey, not overly outrageous given this is the Ritz.

We have been going to Bites for the last 4 years at least 4 times per month. Special drinks created by their bartenders, innovative and delicious food and a first rate wait staff has made it one of our favorite places to go in Naples.

We were celebrating a birthday with dessert and after dinner drinks. Our server, Marlena, was attentive and surprised us with a plate of carrot cake and other desserts, a candle and "Happy Birthday" written on it. What a treat! Thank you so much, Marlena, for making our evening out so enjoyable!!
The jazz trio that was playing was very good, but occasionally became very loud.

Bites is truly one of our favorite restaurants. The food, the service, the atmosphere are all outstanding. We all expect the Ritz to have the best of quality for their guests. Be assured that Bites Restaurant meets all of the criteria. Had a beautiful Easter experience. Jose is a rock star waiter.

As usual the food was excellent and the service flawless . The negative was a few parties were using cell phones and loudly talking into them. I was disappointed that the management did not say anything. It's a great space in a civil atmosphere and it should be kept that way.

We have been to Bites several times before and had been delighted. But not this time. The new menu is much less appealing. And the piano and drummer were so loud, we could barely hear ourselves. Very disappointing experience and doubt we'll go back. Not the Ritz experience we look forward to!

It's hard to beat the Ritz and as usual they did an outstanding job. The food selection in Bites is good. We had four dining so we ordered a variety of food and shared. The food was very good. Our server, Martin, is simply the best. He gave us recommendations on both food and wine and was right on. In addition it's pretty good people watching too. Enjoy.

This review, and Open Table usage is done by Ann Bridges and I have eaten at Bites and oven love it, but on Thursday night, with four friends, it was way too loud. I asked the waiter and matre de several times to ask the two musicians to play more softly or to move us to the other end of the room. Nothing was done and the noise was too loud to allow us to talk to each other.

Always first class.
The dishes come out as they are prepared which is normally not an issue. If it is not busy don't order all of your dishes at once, this way you can avoid having to many dishes arrive at the same time.

The food was very simple said awful.
The lovely server made us feel happy with our drinks and promised, that the old menus would be back soon.
1. The beet salad was cut raw and bold, the beets too hard, no taste, only the roasted hazelnuts had aroma.
My meatballs felt like IKEA meatballs without anything, poor and too simple....
The desert was nice presented but nothing special
Everything was missing a special taste...
We had to ask for 3 little pieces of bread and butter.
When we think, how you started, the lovely bread basket, the bread sticks, little tasty muffins, oil and different dips, your steak and Frits, the curried chicken, the little ice cream scones, your chocolate fondue.... how fun.......
What happened?

Menu is awful. They took off all the past favorites they have had for 4 yrs. we will not be back. We complained and were told it's the same chef, but he is not listening to the many people who have complained about the new menu.
We will tell our friends.
