What a terrible experience! Made a reservation for our Anniversary dinner and asked specifically for an outdoor balcony table. Even got a request to confirm the reservation the day before and no issue was brought up. When we arrived, we were told no table was available outside as it’s first come, first served. I asked why weren’t we told that when reservation was made and then confirmed. Just....”sorry about that”. We were seated outside at a fire pit sofa to get a drink and see if anything would open up, if not we could eat there (not at all conducive to eating). We then ordered cocktails....which came out completely wrong. When we told the server, he questioned why we thought they were wrong. We went through the obvious missing components and taste. These were specialty cocktails from their menu that e should have realized were completely wrong. We were then told a table was available on balcony. Nobody walked us there and we had to see the only open table....and it was right behind a huge pillar with no view of the water at all. We waited for drinks. Nothing. So we got up and left. Told hostess and she didn’t care. Server didn’t notice. The only person who seemed to care was the parking attendant.

We had made a late afternoon reservation. When we arrived we were told it would be 45 minute wait to sit outside so we sat inside by window. Meal we had was very good but very disappointed to see that at no point where outside table ever need capacity. Multiple tables with no reserved sign stayed unoccupied throughout our time there. Quite unreasonable. Will never bother going to a ritz location again given this terrible treatment and service.

Food was poorly prepared. No sophistication. Sand in my salad. Sauces too rich. Octopus way too salty AND tough. Beautiful setting outside, but the heater kept going off. All around disappointing given the setting and the clientele. Also overpriced for the product.

We came to celebrate a 60th birthday with 7 of us. The staff found us a quiet area for or celebration. Samantha was our server and she was amazing. She had good suggestions and took care of us all night. People had the rib eye steak, salmon and scallops and everyone was happy with their meal. The tower of chocolate cake and the bread pudding were a wonderful end to our meal. What a joy to have a meal in an elegant setting where it was quiet enough that we could hear everyone at the table and share group conversations. A lovely location with excellent food and service.

We had a very bad experience on Christmas Day. I had called several days ahead to alert them that we would have two people in wheel chairs and would need a table that could accommodate them. When we arrived they showed us to a booth that was not wheelchair friendly. I told them I had called ahead asked why they were not ready for us. They then made us wait for a table and placed us far away from any view even though there was a request made days before for a table with a view. Many view tables were empty when we arrived. The Lobster bisque soup arrived cold. We ordered four steak dishes all with sauce on the side and cooked medium. Two arrived with sauce on and two with sauce on the side. All were cooked rare. We had to aske for steak knives from someone passing by as our waiter was never at our table checking in on us. All this for a prefixed price which was way below the standard acceptable from a restaurant of this caliber charging these prices o. A holiday.

We lunched at Cast & Plow during the week so it was very quiet with only a few other people lunching. The service was excellent - friendly and attentive - and the food was very good. We had the swordfish wrap and red quinoa bowl, and both were flavorful and ample in portion. The fries were also very fresh. The restaurant, in the Ritz-Carlton, was very stylish and clean. We will definitely dine here again.

High prices that match the Ritz Carlton brand for very average food. They don't know how to cook a medium rare burger... it just comes out well done. Service is extremely slow, even during quiet periods. You are paying for the location, view and atmosphere. Don't expect great food nor service.

Samantha, our server was extraordinary! She displayed great attention to detail and even surprised me with a birthday cake. This restaurant has an extraordinary view of the outdoor. I really recommend seating on the patio if you are given the option. The decor of the restaurant is extraordinary and this is a true Ritz-Carlton with outstanding levels of customer service. You should definitely ask for Samantha if you ever visit!

Our last visit was for Thanksgiving Dinner. The food, service and ambiance were top notch. I would have given them 5 stars but toward the end of our main meal the server advised us the desert station was about to close in ten minutes. Now, when you are paying top dollar for a holiday meal, and you are seated with a reservation, one should not have the desert station closed until you are ready to leave. There is no reason and poor class to rush guests into their desert at a high end restaurant. It put a damper on an otherwise perfect evening.
