It’s just traditional hotel fair. Food is fine but it’s not a special experience. We were here for brunch which they suddenly stopped serving at noon. What kind of brunch stops at noon? Also, I hear their dinner is better but we probably won’t go back to find out.

Celebrated two birthdays in one of the cheater booths and it was a fabulous experience. The noise level was low and we were able to hear and converse easily with everyone. The staff was very accommodating and made it special as well. I will definitely be back and recommend M Bistro.

Impeccable service. Classy, first class atmosphere. Great live jazz. With a party of seven, we had a private booth, whuch was another nice touch. Everyone but one of us loved their dish. The rib eye and scallop dishes were especially outstanding choices.

Standard menu. Hard to find. On 3rd floor of Ritz Carlton hotel and then past the courtyard. Well appointed and luxurious environment. Food is ok but nothing special. Good place for quiet and relaxing meal.

It’s in the Ritz but it felt like they have no management. Waiter disappeared and I got a medium well rather than medium rare $50 steak. I could have found someone but rather than be a dud and ruin the whole cadence for the table I sucked it up. I had to find another waiter to order another bottle of wine. It came and he just poured, no tasting to ensure not turned etc. not what you should get with a $90 bottle. I could go on but no room. They need help and I’d wait until they get it fixed if I were you!

Had a terrible experience with service. Ordered three coarse meal prior to going to the theatre which I told the server. Paid for the meal early. Waited for the third coarse and when asked where it was they said I didn't order it. Showed them my receipt and then they said we will get it to you. Never happened. One of the worst service experiences ever. They were not busy so forget that excuse. Oh, the food was ok and no where worth that experience. Good luck with your experience if you go.

The food is great and don't be afraid to ask about you culinary predilections, they have many off-menu items such as vegetarian. Difficult to get to unless you know to find it on the third floor of the Ritz-Carlton. Dark atmosphere for the photos did not come out well.

The service was amazing and so was the food. It was our anniversary and the waiter brought us a champagne toast and trio of deserts on the House. The restaurant overlooks the Davenport lounge so we had live Jazz for most of our meal. It was a little loud if you were next to it but our server happily moved us toward the back so we could still hear it and each other.

Large group that went for a special occasion. Food was mediocre. Waiter was surly and rude and brought the wrong food and in the wrong order. We still had to tip 20% because tip was added because of large group. Food was bland. Not what we expected from a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton.
