Had an amazing birthday dinner here on Oct 16th. I'm a picky eater and 7 1/2 months pregnant and this place surpassed my expectations. Everyone called us by our names from the Host, bartender and even waitress! Valet even parked our car for free! My husband enjoyed their drinks while the bartender made me a virgin berry mojito, so I didn't feel left out. Absolutely will be back in the future...

Decent restaurant in the ritz, very nice room with great view and lots of space. Fairly small menu, but most dishes done well, if not out of sight. Prices are more out of sight than food quality, so expect NYC prices, especially for wine which seems to do 400% markup. I give it four stars, but for the gorgeous space and high prices, everything shouldbe better.

I've dined at cast and plow several times this summer with my work and had more favorable prior experiences than today. I usually order tofu w my quinoa bowl. Not allowed today. Also it took over 45 mins for our entrees to arrive versus the table that was sat prior to us already enjoying their meal. The food was surprisingly sub par today. My companions had a lackluster chicken sandwich and a greasy chicken plate. Disappointed in overall experience.

EXCELLENT service, Farouk was perfect from beginning to end, meal was great, ambiance splendid, nobody rushed us, our two sons (18 and 21) going back to college and we had a memorable, quiet meal together, no electronics, no distractions. Beautiful view, all was perfect.

I've been here multiple times and the service never gets better - it only gets worse . I don't know if they are short of staff or they just don't hire people who care about giving good service. It's never really that busy there so I don't understand why the service is consistently poor. The food is over priced and underwhelming. After making the mistake of telling my waitress I needed another minute to decide - we waited another 10-15 minutes before someone who wasn't even our server even came back over. The food came out fairly quickly but was quite bland. The server finally stopped back over to see how everything was and to clear the plates - that my husband wasn't even done eating. After that. I one came back other than to fill out water and we waited nearly 20 minutes for our check. Another table got up very annoyed because they had also been waiting a long time. Beautiful restaurant and gorgeous views - but not worth the time or money when bad service and mediocre overpriced food is served. I won't be coming back.

This was my third time here with clients (lunch). The service was even worse this time. The food was excellent however. There's an air of arrogance and lack of attention to detail. There doesn't seem to be a lot of pride taken either. Just very nonchalant. Our food took a very long time (all three visits). No one seemed to care. No water or tea refills, unfriendly service. We didn't have all day and it was embarrassing to have this happen with clients that had a timeline to keep. Three times is enough. Done and will not return.

I have dined at Cast and Plow each time I visit from Australia to visit my daughter and have always enjoyed it. This year on our 3rd visit for dinner I had to send my chicken dish back as my rice and vegetables were soaked in water( obviously) not drained and my chicken so tuff as dried out. The waiter apologised and ordered a new one. My daughters dish was fine. They also forgot our side dish of broccoli. The waiter was extremely apologetic and deducted our desert off the bill. So we thought we would go for lunch following day. I ordered spaghetti with pesto sauce. It was terrible. No flavour. Just a bowl of pasta covered in green sauce. For the money you pay one does expect above average for food and service. As I said earlier we have always enjoyed eating at the Ritz and maybe the chef each time was not one of your better ones but for the money we spend there I will not risk it again.

Poor ambience, food tastes like regular café. And table we were seated was not leveled properly, my glass almost tipped off! I expect more from you.. from Ritz Carlton.. I might as well eat at Apple Bee's , at least I'll get what I paid for.

We went to this restaurant twice when we stayed at the Ritz Carlton the first night we were served by James and the second by Stuart they were both fabulous thank you so much for giving us such great evenings ! The food was delicious we sat outside on both occasions and loved the marina views and the fire pits on the tables and blankets to keep you warm ! Many thanks for two wonderful evenings.

I'm a local and have gone to the Ritz for years. Cast & Plow's service is only mediocre, but is overly expensive. One of the white wine's by the glass is $60 per glass for instance. When you're charging those rates, you must have exemplary service and incredible food. The food is just ok, and as mentioned, the service is not great.

This is a nice place for summer food and cocktails. It gets chilly on the patio so stay inside when the sun starts going away September thru May. We had a reservation at 5pm for the outside table but we not seated until 5:30pm because our table wasn't ready outside. Diners were gone but they didn't have time to set up/ bus. Inside was fairly empty so we just grabbed a cocktail and waited inside. Probably understaffed. There were two weddings happening that evening. Everyone was friendly and pleasant and attentive: hostess, waiter and bus. That really enhanced the experience. Food was delicious.
