                                          The only real complaint I have is that in a restaurant that would only allow me a reservation super early was empty the entire time! The only tables not empty were the ones directly behind me, directly in front of me, and directly next to me. The rest of the restaurant is empty. Why? In any time., But especially in the middle of a pandemic do you seat tables on top of each other? The entire restaurant had empty tables. You could easily put a table next to an empty table before you fill up the next table. So stupid! I had to listen to parents reprimand their kids nonstop when this could’ve easily been solved if they were just sat at two tables away from me where there was nobody adjacent from them. Read the room Host stand.

                                          Other than finding it difficult to get into the building, the remaining experience was really great. Everyone went out of their way to make you feel welcome and our waiter was very nice and explained things from the menu. He helped us with our choice in wine by giving us a small taste and gave us the time to enjoy our dinner without feeling rushed.

                                          Good food, a little pricey but expected at a restaurant in the Ritz. The top things we ate were the rosemary rolls, lamb shank, and pine cone Lake Tahoe dessert. Excellent service.

                                          Waited an hour to get our food, and two out of six people in our party got not what they ordered. Food itself was fine, though in no way spectacular. Overall not what you’d expect at a Ritz.

                                          Service awful. Food even more awful. My $25 kale salad was disgusting the lettuce was old and wilted and some of the pieces moldy. I can’t believe they can command the prices they do and ppl pay for it. Shocking. Halibut was so dry it was over cooked by about an hour! Laden In sauce Probly to cover up how bad it was. My son had a burger it was the consistency of a hockey puck. All around a bad experience………

                                          We went on a quiet night, but got a seat by the fire. The drinks were great! Food was great- ossobuco was amazing. They gave us champagne for our anniversary which was really sweet! Very happy with service. Kinda pricey but it was lovely.

                                          Had to pay $25 for vallet parking. They sat us near exit, what is point of reservation? Service was slow and food was extremely over priced. Expected more for the ritz Carlton

                                          We were seated promptly for our reservation. Ambience was good, although would have preferred a table not all the way in the back corner. Started off with a glass of red wine Bordeaux blend, and a Nomade cocktail. Both excellent. Had the grilled octopus which was tasty and uniquely presented. For our main dishes had the braised lamb shank and 6oz of A5 Wagyu today’s special. Honestly both were underwhelming. The lamb was tender however there was nothing special, the description mentioned truffles and although I love truffles, couldn’t find any such flavor as if it was forgotten. The sauce it was covered in was unfortunately sweet which I didn’t like or expect. We both love great steaks and are big fans of A5, at restaurants and at home. This time we were surprised to find it chewy due to multiple fat pieces for this rib eye cut. The meat was was rare even though we asked for medium rare. We decided to keep it as is given it’s A5 and to experiment. Overall the flavor just wasn’t there not the marbling. Checked to confirm it’s Japanese and not American. Was told yes Japanese. The sides for the steak were bland, a regularly full unseasoned tomato and a basic mashed potato with a side of garlic sauce. It didn’t help the steak taste profile in our opinion. Lastly we tried a special dessert in the form of a pine cone covered in chocolate and filled with all kinds of yummy and crunchy pieces. Dessert was delicious. It’s too bad the main food was average, particularly surprising for The Ritz and for such a price tag.

                                          The lunch was relaxing and the wines were quite good. They may wish to add chopsticks for guests to use with the Bulgogi Bowl. Also perhaps keep an eye on the pizza bottoms, our was burnt quite black all underneath and it ruined the flavour.

                                          Our first time back to in 2 years due to the Pandemic and Manzanita didn't disappoint. Very busy, energetic night at full capacity - it was nice seeing crowds again. Very few patrons/guests in the restaurant (or the entire hotel) were masked (except for the staff) as there are no mask mandates in Placer County, CA, which was really refreshing after living in extreme lock-down Los Angeles through the Pandemic. The mixed drinks were excellent and the huge Farm Kale Salad (we split it) was fresh and really good. The Short Rib Pappardelle meat was a little tough, but still good; but the show stealer was the Winter Gnocchi which was excellent with a hint of cinnamon sweetness and VERY filling. It will be hard to eat the entire dish. We look forward to returning.

                                          Scaled back menu from previous years, disappointing flavors for the price point. Typical great service from the Ritz Carlton.

                                          Was ok. The rosemary bread and gem salad were excellent. However our entrees arrived before out appetizers we’re finished. There was not enough room on the table so the waiter took them back to keep warm. Once ready it was clear both were sitting under a heat lamp chicken was cold and tasteless short ribs bland with the pasta sticking together. Requested the cheese board for dessert never received. This was a birthday so we only received the complimentary desert.

                                          The food was a miss and lacked flavor that I was expecting from a Five Star resort, especially the Ritz. I had to send my food back and even with the replacement plate, it still wasn’t as good and I didn’t want to send it back again. The bread was really good but $15.

                                          Being the Ritz, we had higher expectations on the food. The lamb shank didn't fall off the bone, it was still tender but not as tender as it could be. The Lobster and Crab pasta was dry, we expected the pasta to be more moist. The desconstructed cheesecake was like eating feta texture and crumbles apart. Not very flavorful but mixed with the ice cream it tasted more moist and much better. Atmosphere was beautiful. Overall, we still had a great time.

                                          Captive audience at the Ritz. Poor menu selections (had to specifically ask for a steak). Pretty bizarre, but a bland $75 NY strip was available. Octopus was fair, but grainy. For the price, I expect a much more refined experience including a broader menu.

                                          Went there recently for spouses birthday and had a good time but some problems with the food. Had to return the Hanger Steak because it was too stringy and hard to chew. Some of the vegetables on another plate were too coarse to chew. Out of character from our previous visits, always enjoying everything. Our service was great and our server made adjustments because of our quality issues. Hopefully this will be an anomaly and our next visit will be better.
