This was our 3rd New Years Eve dining night out at the Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City 31 December 2018. We like the Fyve. The things that Ritz Carlton can control were very good, thus 5 stars are given for the food and service. Our server, "Ms. Holy," was superb! We will give the Fyve another try on 31 December 2019.
We had dinner with the wine pairing. Fyve did a fantastic job on food preparation and wine selection as usual.
About beverage service, this needs better coordination. I was drinking chardonnay wine when we were seated. I also ordered sparkling water. When my water glass was about half empty, a new person automatically refilled the glass with regular water. I reordered new sparkling water which was later charged. My wife was drinking a martini when we were seated. She had regular water on the side. When our appetizer course with wine pairing was served, my chardonnay remained and I was also served the wine pairing. My wife was not served the wine pairing. She notified Holy. My wife was immediately served the wine pairing. Thanks to "Holy," the remainder of the dinner was fantastic!
I am almost embarrassed to give a 1 star to Fyve for Ambiance. That night, I wore a black tuxedo and my wife wore a beautiful black gown. We were seated in the Fyve next to a gentleman wearing a baseball cap, sports T-shirt, and denim jeans. A lady accompanying the gentleman was wearing denim jeans and a sweatshirt. This couple did not make eye contact or speak to us. Seated on the opposite side of us was a woman dressed in a puffy coat, knit hat, and scarf. She remained fully dressed for snow and cold throughout her dinner. She talked loudly and endlessly at her dinner fare and hot tea beverage, but did not make eye contact or talk with us.
The 2-piece acoustic and electric guitar band with vocals was nice. The music was improvisational 1970's jazz, and thus, not appropriate for dancing as in the previous two years at Fyve.
Best, Rick S
Family dinner for new year's eve. Wonderful menu and wine pairings. Great service.
What can be better than the Ritz? Nothing. From valet parking to food it’s a total winner and worth the time. Try it once you will return. We do brunch there on Xmas Day for the last 5 years.
My husband and I had Christmas brunch at the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City on Christmas day, and to say we were disappointed would be an understatement. First, their holiday brochure said, “Fyve Restaurant Lounge invites guests…” So, we expected brunch in Fyve, but instead we were sent upstairs to your gigantic, noisy ballroom, which was so packed with people, tables, and chairs that one could barely move. Frankly, we would have turned around and left had they not required us to provide a credit card number in advance—something that surprised me when I made the reservation.
When we were seated, the waiter offered us sparkling wine/mimosas, and we were surprised to learn that only one drink was included in the (exorbitant) $99 price of brunch. Our table was so small and wobbly that we kept knocking things over as we reached for the salt or our water glass. We banged into others’ chairs as we moved around, and they banged into ours. The food was good but nothing special given the cost, and the service was haphazard—not because the wait staff were inattentive but because there were too few of them. Our bill came to $266, which would have bought us dinner at a fine restaurant, not the equivalent of a college dining hall.
We expected a much better experience at a Ritz Carlton Hotel. Suffice it to say, we won’t be back next year, and we will advise our friends to stay away as well.
Christmas brunch. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, the decorations, service, food selection and quality. We are already want to make reservations for 2019 brunch!!!
The parfait was watery. Strange.
AS ALWAYS A PERFECT EVENING. Lovely dining room, the tables are well spaced, the food is delicious, enjoyed the bread basket. But real kuddos to the service, perfect service.
Service was lacking. The appeared to be understaffed both days we went for dinner. Now the food was excellent! So good that I ordered the same thing for dinner both days and breakfast was equally as good.
My experience at Fyve will guarantee that I return time & again. They provide creative meals, interesting cocktails, & a fine dining experience. No stuffiness, just a great experience.
Been going to this property for 19 years and it's always top shelf service, food, and ambiance.
We are celebrating my son birthday yesterday evening, the service was exceptional,the entré was superior!!
Food was basically good, if not a bit on the heavily flavored side. Overall a good experience
Excellent service, great food and drinks! Highly recommend for special occasions and a quaint date night. Their brunch is amazing!
Our sever Dino was attentive and very knowledgeable. Food was great. Highly recommend the Ravioli for dinner. Loaded with flavor! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Excellent food and very attentive staff.
Impromptu Saturday lunch. Absolutely wonderful! Shrimp and Grits were delicious!!
The Stuffed Sea Bass was wonderful! The waiters were thoughtful and knowledgeable about the menu items and wines.
EXCELLENT service and experience! Kudos to everyone involved in such a wonderful experience. I will definitely be back. Food was A+
Thank you for making our evening such an enjoyable one
Excellent as always!!
The food is amazing and the service is even better! This is our favorite restaurant for special events (or even just a nice dinner).
The food was delicious and service impeccable. Everyone on the staff was friendly and professional. Our waiter, Amrani, was outstanding
Other than the difficulty I have locating the restaurant, I have to admit that I was impressed with my experience at Fyve. I called the restaurant to get assistance in locating the establishment, the hosted was able to guide us to the location and stood at door to escort us in. The ambiance was perfect for our first date. I was a a bit quiet, dim, with the music set a perfect level for us to hold a conversation across from each other as i looked into my date's beautiful eyes. The server assistant and our waitress were both very accommodating and could foreshadow our every want or need. I had the scallops and she had the shrimp and grits. The presentation and the pairing of the food was perfect.
Not to take away from the chef or the food, but I would come back just for the customer service alone. Especially because of the host (she was wearing a blue dress). I wish I would've gotten her name because she set the tone for my amazing evening. I believe our waitress name is Elizabeth, but I forget the server assistant's name. He was outstanding as well.
Thank you Fyve for a wonderful evening, I will definitely be returning for another experience.
My father birthday
Disappointed.....expected much more. Food was terrible. From the over cooked steak that was served, cut into three pieces, to the lobster roll that was loaded with onions and on top of a soaked buttered re-heated roll. Server tried but was truly out of her element. It took her about 15 mins to even get water to the table. I guess that's why they have cheesy iPads on the tables, Uncool, unprofessional and unrecommended.
Favorite low key happy hour spot.
Birthday. Was fabulous from start to finish
Service super slow
Service was slow both nights. Food was just ok. Wanted to film the smoked old fashioned drink for social media exposure and the machine was broken. We have stayed at RC all over the world and this Pentagon City restaurant is on the bottom of the list. Surprising for the RC brand.
It was fine but nothing extraordinary. Got the Virginian and crabcakes were generous as far as meat but a bit wet — could use some crisping up. Eggs cooked pretty well. Starter cheddar and chive biscuits left much to be desired. Also, the interior was a bit dark and there was a strange photo with a man and a woman’s foot near his face. Not exactly appetizing.
The food was amazing and the facility was well-maintained but it lacked service.
It took over ten minutes to get my coffee refilled.
A great last minute find for an early breakfast before heading in to DC. The food was great and proportioned just right. The service was outstanding!
I had brunch with lemon pancakes. The syrup case out in a bottle coated in red powder. When I pointed this out to the waitress, she told me I should just wipe the powder and for with my fingers and use it. Hmm, that’s great, then I would need to go wash my hands and what the heck is the red powder? Seriously bad service...
My little nieces all look forward to their annual birthday tea at the Ritz Carlton. The food is visually exquisite and tastes divine, the presentation is brilliant, and their selection of teas quite perfect. What sets Fyve apart from other venues is the quality of their staff. The service is attentive and gracious, and they make women of all ages feel like royalty.
Our server was terrific and very attentive. She surprised my guests with desserts for birthday and retirement celebrations. The sea bass was too salty. My friend’s grits were clumpy. Overall, we had a great time and again, our server was lovely. I just had high expectations based on the description of the restaurant and its location in the Ritz.
Great Sunday Brunch here. They were very busy but service was still very good.
Excellent food in a lovely setting. Wine, a Merlot from Washington was superb. The Shrimp and Grits was particularly flavorful. Easy to get to and park which was important to us that evening.
