The service and food were equally amazing. Pre fixe Thanksgiving dinner tasted carefully prepared and beautifully executed. Great range of choices, calm, warm staff throughout even though it was busy. Lovely overall.

The ambience was heavenly out on the patio, nice cushy armchairs, wonderful server Stuart who was personable and helpful. The salad was good but the rest of the food was awful: I was shocked at how bad it was. Both the turkey and the potatoes tasted strange, there was a sliver of sweet potato (?) and a small portion of stuffing. Pretty pitiful for $98. Very disappointing. And to begin with, the hotel goofed up my reservation, when I called toconfirm I was told I had no reservation and I was fortunate that Heather the manager helped us and corrected the error. Not the greatest experience. However, it is a beautiful location and I would give it a second chance at lunchtime. Maybe the staff was just too overwhelmed.

Good food. Made reservations but had to wait for about 10 mins before being seated. Service: nice servers but not as attentive or slower service, this is likely due to being understaffed

Beautiful outdoor setting. Fine cocktails. Delicious food (we had frites, Caesar salad, veggie falafel, and scallops). Servers seem stretched thin but managed to treat us well. Highly recommend for a special night out.

My daughter, my sister and I celebrated my 49th birthday with brunch. The ambiance was beautiful. The weather was perfect. The only real issue we had was the sun moving along the deck with the umbrellas that did not tilt made you have to adjust during our stay. My sister informed our server that it was my birthday and he brought over a giant piece of chocolate cake with gold flakes and ice cream and it was delicious, certainly enough to share.

There was an incident where one of the staff came over and took the umbrella from us entirely to move it down to another table for another guest without notifying us. I didn’t mention it to anyone as we were wrapping up and getting ready to leave but I found it to be rude…

When I made the reservation I did not realize it was inside the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The lobby area is really nice and the staff was accommodating.

The servers definitely allow you to enjoy your time and space as they don’t visit very often to check on you.

Overall it was nice. valet parking is your only option and I would visit again.

The food, wait staff and views were stellar. I would highly recommend for the quality of food and location.

The only thing that could be improved is the restaurant honoring outdoors reservations. Open Table able allows you to choose if you would like to dine indoors or outdoors. I picked outdoors. On arrival was told that restaurant doesn't grantee it. We had to wait ~15 minutes despite arriving on time. It felt like I was being given a favor for getting seated outside. If this is not a guarantee I recommend removing the option and having guests specify it as a preference in special request section.

It was will a lovely experience, just a little bit of unnecessary back & forth on the arrival.

Dirty menu’s
Limited selections on Menu.
Made a special request when reservation was made but completely ignored by staff.
Waiter was not fluent in English.
Very small portion on Wild Organic Salmon order.
Caesar Salad was essentially a plate of chopped Romaine.
Restaurant and Lobby needs a face lift and new furniture.
Existing furniture is old and dirty.
The place needs a deep clean.

We made reservations for brunch. Upon on-time arrival, they said that we would still need to wait for 10 minutes to be seated. After about 15 minutes, we checked to see when we would be seated. We were then told that only the buffet was available because they were at capacity. They had made no effort to let us know that until we went up to ask again. The buffet did not look appealing. We left and went elsewhere.

If you are dining at the Ritz in Marina del Rey, you already know what to expect. Very pricey, but the cocktails were tasty and the chicken breasts cooked to perfection.

Ambience and food is very good. Much better than it used to be.
Service need much improvement.
The waitress does not provide enough attention to the customer.
I needed to look for her to get menu, all the thing we need while dining.
We took long time to catch her to give us a check.
Cannot make I contact, wave at her but does not see me.
I know it is hard job to be a good waitress or waiter but the management have to teach them to get happy customers. Thank you.

The server was great and the restaurant itself is really nice. We love this place but our last visit the kitchen was not on par to usual standards. Steak came out undercooked twice and the rest of our meal was bland which was unusual because we usually get great food here. Maybe just an off day.

Booked a reservation on Open Table and the host said that they could not find my reservation at first. Restaurant is very clean and good ambiance.The best thing about the restaurant was being able sit outside and enjoy the view. The food was decent but nothing super spectacular. The service was somewhat slow because the staff seemed under staffed.

Super disappointed with this “farm to table” dining experience. Tomatoes in the tomato and burrata salad had no flavor and were barely ripe. If you have a dish with two ingredients they need to be perfect or don’t bother. The rock shrimp app was only so so and needed salt. The salt shaker on the table was clogged so we asked for another one. The new one that she brought was also clogged with wet salt. The last thing we ordered was very good - the $30 wagyu burger. Well cooked, great flavor and yummy fries. This place is completely overpriced and resting on the laurels of being at the Ritz. Cocktails were yummy (but overpriced) and service was very good.

Been several times, the food options have been declining, especially on the steaks, down to only one basic filet that was not that good.

Prior they had tomahawk special which was great, and prior to that had a 10oz American wagyu. Not likely to dine here again.

Room service food was great, fast & well prepared but breakfast items so this is expected.

Service was slow. I don’t think they were fully staffed. But, that’s an issue many restaurants are having in this day. Our waitress was very good but very busy. She had a lot of tables. The food was ho hum. It’s inside the Ritz so I knew it was going to be expensive but I’ve had better omelettes at local diners. The view over the marina was gorgeous. Go for drinks but eat elsewhere.

NOT UP TO PAR - For a Ritz, waterside, there are high expectations of this restaurant. But on our visit, service attentive, but slow. The food was not hot when delivered. And the food was only standard - not extra ordinary as you would expect from a high price waterside restaurant.

It was a great experience and a beautiful location. We had brunch. The falafel was good. But the frittata was like an omelet, very small not worth all the money! Stay away from it! 2 slices of toast cost $4.
