                                                            Service was very good. Food was good but pricy. The hard floors carried the sound from other tables to an annoying level, at times. Rest rooms were quite a ways away. The grounds looked amazing and the hotel was full, clean and bright.

                                                            The service was excellent. Food quality great but value of prices was a little off. The negative was a belligerent table seated near us that for the most part ruined all the other diners experiences that evening. I understand there was not much management could do with their vocal level.

                                                            While the food and staff were outstanding, the restaurant was very noisy for an average crowd. I also waited a bit too long between courses. Equivalent food and service can be had elsewhere in the nearby cities for about half the cost. I've been to the Ritz in past years and the experience had been special. Not this time.

                                                            We have been wanting to try EnoSteak for some time and made reservations for New Years Eve dinner. Unbeknownst to us it was a price fix meal which seemed strange given it is such a small restaurant. The first course was pate, which we aren’t big fans of so we opted to skip it and had the bread. Second course was crab and avocado salad which was small but good. Third course was a small (around 4-5oz) steak and a very tiny piece of potato cake (2”x 3”). The steak was very good but the potato cake was awful, it had been around a while. Desert was average, caramel mousse or lemon tart. For $170 per person (without drinks) it was a complete let down and my husband left hungry. There are too many great restaurants in the area, we won’t be back.

                                                            Absolutely made top 5 steaks I’ve ever had. The 42 day dry aged steak had a nice charred exterior, seasoned well, and just melted in your mouth. Truffled mac and cheese was amazing! Great bold flavors.

                                                            Great meal as always. Servers are on top of their game. Was louder than typical. Also, I must be getting old as most people were in jeans and causally dressed. Food was very good but Selanne’s is still the cream of the crop when it comes to steak.

                                                            Extremely overpriced for what restaurant offers. Wine list is super short and wine on the list looked randomly chosen. Service was very poor- we got bread about 40 min after seated, already after appetizers. Server showed up by the table once every 10-15 minutes, didn't even try to show attention. Salads and appetizers were good. Steaks were just ok, definitely no comparison to other good places in OC. We have been to Raya at Ritz numerous times, and always liked there. First (and certainly last) our time at enoSteak. Looks like enoSteak is being run by totally different people with no training in hospitality.

                                                            My husband and I went there for a special celebration on Friday night. It's a small and intimate restaurant. We were taken to a nice table by the fireplace. Our servers, Christian and Joshua were attentive and we never felt rushed. We both ordered steaks and a few sides. The food was good, but nothing remarkable given this price point. We also ordered a chocolate dessert and it also was just ok. Two men at a nearby table were loud and talkative, mostly going on and on about how this was a free dinner since their last one here was a service disaster. At this price point, we will stay with the other steakhouses including Bourbon Steak and Flemming's. The restaurant is in the Ritz and I would stick with Raya and enjoy the views if I needed to stay on property.

                                                            Outdated food Menus is nice and small so... each item should be delicious. Advertised as “organic” yet they served a Jurassic sized chicken breast. Organic chickens are small in size... as in the size of chickens for the past 10,000+ years. It had a funny texture. The Tuna Tartar was bland and served in an unimpressive way... No special flavors or a nice light zip of spice in a sauce. A slight sear would also help. The sides are overly fattening with way too much cream and butter. I have had much much higher quality food at much less exclusive restaurants. This special group birthday dinner was extremely disappointing and a waist of funds. The service was excellent, the creme brûlée was delicious, the decor was beautiful. Please join the current decade of food quality and don’t fib about organic... SERVE IT.

                                                            Outstanding ambience and Steak! One of the best. A bit pricy but you expect that a top steakhouse.

                                                            We always have a great time at Eno. We went for my husbands birthday this past Saturday, unfortunately his steak did come out over cooked but the rest of ours was great. He got the filet and the rest of us got the coffee rubbed wagyu.

                                                            Embarrassingly awful. We'd been here before and it was okay, but wanted to give it a second chance. We love the sibling restaurant at the hotel, Raya, but thought that the last time we went here must've been an off-night. In fact, the off-night was their best night. From the rude hostess to the barely adequate server to the steak that is far, far below similar price point steak restaurants in South Orange County, the entire experience was a total waste. We'll happily go back to the hotel to dine - Raya has been fantastic the many times we've been there, but never again to EnoSteak. Horrid.

                                                            Nice ambiance but food was average. Heirloom tomato salad had a tart dressing.Lobster tail was mushy and rib eye steak was not well marbled. Service was very good. This is not a true steakhouse.

                                                            I ordered an 8 oz filet cooked medium. What arrived was a 6 oz filet rare. I politely asked them to cook it to medium. My wife then got about 1/3 thru her meal when they returned with my filet --this time it was medium-rare. The filet was about $60 which is pricey for a small (none bone-in filet). This is supposed to be a steak house and they can't cook to the temperature that was ordered? The ambiance and service were otherwise good, but a steak joint that can't serve up the steak as ordered the first time is very weak!
