    What a delightful evening my husband and I had….food was good, but it was the wait staff who made it an experience! Our welcome by the host, a seasonal worker from Italy, was so warm and friendly. Krista has to be the best server in the area! Her recommendations and service were spot on, including steak and salmon prepared perfectly. We’ll be back next time we visit the area!

    This was not to the ritz standard. The waiter was absent and non responsive. We see our waiter arguing and yelling at other employees right in front of our table. We waited 30 minutes to order wine after requesting a wine list, another 30 minutes later we finally flagged down another waiter to get our wine. A third person came by to tell us the wine was no longer available do we want something else? As our food arrived we decided we were not interested in “pounding” our wine so we declined. As we were eating another waiter dropped a tray with glass that shards hit our legs. Luckily we were not cut. This person did not apologize and laughed at the situation. Really disappointing experience. Do not waste your time, this place is a mess.

    We were a party of 4 and each ordered a different entree. The food was absolutely delicious - we had steelhead trout, a 16oz pork chop, scallops and a ribeye steak in a Demi-Glace sauce. The mojitos were made with mint organically grown right outside our window! My friend loved her Cosmo as well! The crowning touch was a flaming s’mores dessert with amazing burnt marshmallow ice cream! Yum!!! Service was outstanding as well! All in all, a great evening!

    We are homeowners in Northstar and have been coming to the Ritz for dining for years. It is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and service. Our dinner last night was delicious but the mountain ambiance was ruined by the barking dog at a nearby table. We are dog-friendly people and know the Ritz is too but to allow a dog to bark during the entire 1+ hours of our dinner is unacceptable. Also, please bring back the Paella!

    Went to Manzanita to celebrate girls night out. The service was super friendly and always checking on us. We ordered 2 cocktails which were delicious and in such pretty glass wear. The only thing that was odd was the server gave us the dessert menu just when we started eating our entree. It was nice to receive a amuse of shrimp and Mandarin, although the shrimp just tasted like stale tempura that was sitting too long. The gnocchi was cooked perfectly, my only complaint is it had no salt so I added my own finishing salt. The Bronzino was cooked perfectly and seasoned perfectly, my only complaint that was the arugula on the plate had no dressing and was super dry, The dish could use a little bit more acid, it also needed more sauce because the Yuca was super dry. I would totally recommend two people to share the whole fish it was super filling. The server recommended the Semore‘s dessert and the presentation was pretty exciting how they had flash paper that burned right in front of us. The desert had such an amazing presentation. Lastly the espresso was so smooth and was made with quality coffee beans and came with delicious shortbread cookie on the side.

    We had dinner at Manzanita mid-week at 6:30pm. The restaurant was busy, but quiet and perhaps 70% occupied. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful, as was the sommelier (who recommended an excellent substitute for the wine we had chose, which happened to be out of stock). Our salad was large, and probably could have been shared. I had the market protein, which was slow roasted beef short ribs. The entre was well presented and delicious. Overall it was an excellent meal.

    We ate outdoors, it was nice, except loud from kids and group of business people next to us. This being said, the service was excellent and the food was excellent. I recommend eating inside if you are looking for a quieter meal. We eat here a good bit, just usually inside.

    The staff were friendly and attentive. I ordered the Bolzano (whole white fish). It was moist but flavorless. The waitress brought me lemon slices to add flavor. My husband had the hangar steak, it was delicious. We also had the focaccia. The meal was brought on the heels of the bread, like it had been pre-cooked. Since it was our anniversary they offered a free dessert. We picked the S’mores. It was just ok. We got $30 off our valet parking. Still had to pay $25. We ate outside on the patio and were entertained by people and their activities. Turns out my husband had gastrointestinal problems that night.

    We went there for a 40th anniversary dinner. Brandon was our waiter and he was phenomenal. Very attentive and addressed us by name. Highly recommend the lamb chops… tender and delicious. You could probably split the salad because it was big. Although it was expensive, it was worth it. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Brandon for making our dinner so special. Sue and Dave B.

    Pricey for a reason! We came in for our anniversary dinner and the staff made us feel special. The cocktails were solid- nice bourbon selection and interesting specialty cocktails. We had the tuna tartare for an appetizer which was very nice, and two different salads both also nice. It was the rack of lamb the was really outstanding - tender and juicy- just outstanding. Very nice job with the sauce and side potatoes. Because it was our anniversary the staff made us a special dessert which was chocolate mousse with cherries and raspberry sorbet. I am not much for dessert but that was a great exception. Overall a great evening with many thanks to the staff at manzanita!

    For the prices paid for the foods, I had expected perfection 1. $16 for homemade rosemary bread and butter...got to be kidding. 2. $30 for gnocchi - way too heavy with too much lemon in the heavy cream sauce. 3. $68 for pork osso buco and NY steak entrees...was good, but I think it was overpriced. The sauce served with the NY steak was way too salty. Would recommend the restaurant only if there wasn't other options.

    The food was very good, but I am shocked by how expensive the menu has become. Additionally, there was a person yelling very loudly in to the kitchen throughout our meal. She really doesn’t need to yell so loudly. It was like being in a diner. Not the experience I expect from Manzanita in a Ritz Carlton. However, the valet guys are great, our server was patient, but the somellier seemed a little out of his comfort zone and seemed quite nervous around four such extraordinary beautiful women. :)

    We are locals and have not visited due to COVID for 2 years. We were celebrating our daughters 40th birthday and from the moment we arrived it was so AWESOME! We have missed the Manzanita and it did not disappoint! Our server Allie has been there for 10 years and was so amazing, she took care of everything as our daughter has a dairy allergy and she spoke with the chef and they made all the necessary adjusts and all of our meals were spectacular!! I give last night 5+ STARS! Thank you, and we felt like we were on vacation and live 10 minutes away, we will be back!! :)

    The service was great as the staff gave us some complimentary champagne and dessert to celebrate our anniversary! That definitely made our experience special. The rosemary bread with the honey butter was delicious! The Pork Ossobucco was topped with mustard seeds and served with grits and Okra at the bottom. My husband enjoyed that! My short ribs with parpadelle was yummy. Overall great food and a fun experience. Thank you Manzanita! While I was expecting it to be fancy, the attire is laid back. There is no need to dress up. It is a hotel by the mountains so that made sense.

    This is a very nice restaurant in the Ritz Carlton, and there is an extensive menu for breakfast and dinner (not sure about lunch, skiing all day). All of the food we had was good, the service was good, and it’s incredibly convenient if you are staying in the Ritz. The restaurant does not exploit its location and captive customer base, it is legitimately good…so if you are staying for a few nights, it is definitively worth booking a reservation in my opinion.
