    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.

    Overall pretty good, but beyond ridiculous for a restaurant like this (with masses of parking) to only have an option for valet and charge you $25 on top of dinner for the pleasure of arriving.

    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.

    The chef at Manzanita deserves credit for branching out with some unusual offerings some of which were fascinating and delicious, others less so. The Pastrami Cauliflower Steak was flavorful, unusually delectable but was too much and overwhelmingly intense for an entrée. Three separate fresh fish entrée choices. My Seabass was perfectly prepared with the skin on. Carefully chosen cheese plate nicely presented, homemade cheesecake – wonderful. But a bizarre, green apple compote thing literally shaped as an Apple did not quite work. Service is impeccable. And the only better views are in the Swiss Alps.

    The grounds are breathtaking and it definitely adds to your visit. However, our dining experience was nothing to write home about. We called the restaurant multiple times to enquire about changing the time of our reservation and ended up on hold for over 20 minutes. We ended up having to call the front desk in order for someone to walk upstairs and ask someone to answer. When we arrived, we were promptly seated and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Our server Brandon was warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. We started with the rosemary bread and butter, which was great but $13 for bread…We then had the crab and lobster pasta and the pork loin. The pasta was VERY salty. My partner enjoyed it but it was way too salty for my liking. I had the pork loin cooked medium. It was beautifully plated but unevenly cooked. There were some very rare parts that were unsettling for a pork dish. For dessert we had the pine cone and the cheesecake. Both were delicious. The cocktails were also made to perfection. Overall, it was an enjoyable dinner but for the price you would expect more. Would be go again? Sure. But don’t expect this dinner to utterly wow you.

    Very creative menu. Honey bread & butter was delicious. Little gem was fresh, though could have been dressed more. Octopus was a bit fishy :-( Celery root soup could have been more flavorful. Same went for the ossobuco. Dessert (chocolate with passionfruit) was phenomenal! Hats off to the dessert chef. Server was nice & understated.

    Not worth the price. The chef has no clue how to prepare and present the dishes. Ceviche was tasteless.Bread is just one level above a diner rolls. Fish was lackluster. Chocolate truffles tasted like chocolate from a box that you can buy in a pharmacy. Service was not at the level of Ritz. Will not come back.

    This is the second time we have dined at Manzanita in the past 4 months. The service is impeccable with an outstanding staff. The ambiance is also very good. Unfortunately, the food quality is very mediocre, especially given the price. It is disappointing that the food quality does not match the other elements of the restaurant.

    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.
