Such a great lunch spot!! Beat our expectations! The fries w aioli were some of the best fries we’ve had, and absolutely loved the crab cake sliders and chicken sandwich. Highly recommend!

Superb food and service, but it's the Ritz-Carlton so of course, don't expect a bargain. Seating outside facing the marina lends itself to a very chill ambience.

First, the view overlooking the marina - the boats and the water is lovely. The outdoor tables have firepits built in, which not only warms a cool evening but also sets a great mood. And the food and service were both excellent!

Reservation 10:15 waited 45 minutes for a table. Then we asked if we could move to a better table that was available, they wouldn’t allow it. Also we waited ages to order. I used to really enjoy going to the Ritz for breakfast.

Josh & Kimberly are the best! Every single time I come here for drinks with friends they make it extra special just enough attention to check on us if we need anything & they don’t make us feel rush! The service always extra outstanding with both of them. (everybody does great work but lucky I had them a few times) :)

Mother’s Day was a total disaster. We scheduled an early breakfast hoping to beat the brunch rush so we could enjoy the rest of our day (1st Mothers Day), seating took forever even with a reservation and we had to wait even longer for a high chair, which we seen someone else get theirs before us who was behind us. We also asked for a banana right away so we could feed our 6 month old before anything, took over an hour and almost 2 hours for the rest of our food. Throughout the entire time we were waiting all we heard were complaints and people leaving before getting their food because of the wait time, esp people with small children. Generously, we overheard people still paying & tipping attempting to salvage their experience. Luckily we have a very well behaved baby who managed to wait it out with us. But unfortunately we missed out on some of our plans trying to have a failed early breakfast which turned into an afternoon brunch, without the brunch. Suuuuuuper disappointed.

Food was good though! Just not worth waiting 2 hours for.

This restaurant was GREAT! At a first glance, the menu items looked a little pricey, but we ordered anyway (x2 beef tenderloins, Korean style duck, chipotle hummus, and tuna poke) It ended up being $140 dollars including tax, drinks, and tips, BUT the food was ON THE TOP OF THE WORLD! Although we chose outdoor seating, and the ocean view was spectacular, the interior seating/design was awesome. Sitting inside would be equally as great as outdoor. The restaurant was right by the Ritz-Carlton entrance, so it’s hard to miss. 100/100 stars ⭐️ 👏🏻

The view was great. The table was great. The service was great. The food was… fine. Not bad, but not incredible, either. The fried cauliflower had too much sauce and was kind of gooey. My duck was not particularly flavorful and a little bit chewy. But I have been there before and will probably go back.

This is my 4th visit and this place hasn’t disappointed me. Great food, strong drinks and excellent service. Love the outdoor seating with the fire pits on the table as well as the view of yachts. Makes you forget about our busy city lives for just a little bit.

Because of the restaurant slowly opening back up, we weren’t able to sit at the bar. We were able to get a table outside on their patio overlooking the Marina. It was very nice and the food was good. Not many people, but it was a Wednesday night. I recommend Cast and Plow for a nice dinner with a lovely atmosphere.

Atmosphere inside is not as intimate/ visually appealing as it used to be. Chalk it up to the current Covid situation I suppose. but the food and service we great. Just not as pleasing atmosphere/ elegance as you generally get with Ritz properties.

We had a great experience dining on the patio as three of us met up from the airport. It was the perfect break. Food was excellent, service was great (just couldn't get my water refilled), but all our other requests were handled expediently.
Would definitely recommend.
