Everything was excellent except for the large load group that came in. Also would be better if the bar was located in a different area. Very loud people. Only service complaint is the water glasses were not kept full very well.

I went for Valentine’s Day thinking I would get one of the nicer rooms in the back as I have before. This was not the case and I was highly disappointed as if I would’ve known that I wouldn’t have received the ambiance I was expecting, I would’ve looked elsewhere as I sat in the bar area

I had afternoon tea here and would not recommend. They shamefully used tea bags instead of loose leaf tea for one, and it was barely warm. The one scone I got was ok, served with the traditional jam, clotted cream, and lemon curd, but the rest of the items on the tray(sandwiches and pastries) were small and average tasting. The wait staff was very polite but seemed a little inexperienced.

It wasn't a horrible experience, but I can't say that I would return as there are a lot more options in the city if you are looking for a proper 'high tea'.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
