Despite the remodeling going on around, Navio continues to provide a respite from daily life. With beautiful views, peaceful atmosphere, outstanding service and fabulous food, it remains a favorite dining destination.

Very good food, unfortunately the service level was extremely uneven. We had an awesome waitress and great food, but there was no presentation of the dishes at all. The seafood platter was simply placed on the table, the main course (two different cuts of meat) were presented as steaks and we had to wait 25 minutes until our table was ready, even though we had a reservation. Will probably be back because the overall experience was still very good, but I do expect a bit more from a place like this.

Staying at Ritz-Carlton for a wedding, we thought Navio would be a good choice for dinner. We didn't know Navio at all so expected a typical hotel restaurant and boy were we surprised with a magnificent meal in a spectacular setting. Service was superb, from a warm welcome at reception throughout the entire meal, we were taken care of very well. An incredible meal, starting with a spaghetti appetizer and ending with two shared desserts. The star of the meal was a special, cassoulet. Rarely do we find cassoulet on a menu or as a special and when we do, I order it. Hands down, Navio's cassoulet competes and wins against them all--it was absolutely amazing, putting a couple I've had in Paris to shame. A bit deconstructed, each ingredient stood on its own and melded with all the rest as well, it was nothing short of amazing. Until trying it, I'd never posted a meal photo on social media--that changed with a photo of cassoulet from Navio. The other two at the table enjoyed their entrees just as much as I enjoyed the cassoulet so really a terrific meal and great service, start to finish. Loved it.

For a seafood restaurant their menu sucks. Three items only. And the $46 bass was dry and flavorless. The scallops were good. In general it was a disappointment.

We returned to the hotel where we were married for a romantic New Year's Eve dinner, only to learn the main lobby and conservatory are under renovation and the dinner would be an extravagant pre fixe meal by a Star chef. When the bill came for $700, my mouth dropped. So pretentious and outrageous. It was tasty to be sure but not what we wanted or needed.

It's a beautiful place and dining was a pleasure. However, Our reservation was not recognized by the front desk and for the first time in my open table experience i scrambled for a confirmation number while my companions were waiting as well as the other guests. It was embarassing to look into my cellphone, looked like a fool and also feared that we will not be seated. To make reservations to this restaurant i had to enter my credit card along with all the info needed. With all the other restaurants all i had to do was say the name in the reservation and that was it. I also heard same thing happened to the guest after me. We were also told that it might have been under a different name? Um, excuse me? If i made the reservations surely i'd put my name on it? Or at least know whose name was it under? Why we were treated that way from supposed to be a 4.5 star restaurant beats me. The service inside was great, food was great but fix your software and your inexperienced front desk!

Location was perfect, our table overlooked an amazing view and everyone was nice. Food was ok, not great, so you're basically paying for the location. I'm sure there are some good tasting items on the menu, we just didn't select the best ones, but our waitress did recommended both items.
I would get there early to enjoy the grounds. Oh and valet parking is $15, they did not validate or mention the cost for parking when you enter the gate.

The location is incredible. I saw it reviewed on"Check Please..." and took a friend for a special birthday. However, I was disappointed in the food. For instance, why serve a fish dish with a veal sauce? Especially something as purely delicious as scallops? Dessert menu was strange too. Maybe because it was the holidays. View was spectacular though, and service great.

Our food was too salty & the pasta didn’t taste like pasta. The food overall was average & very expensive. The ambiance was lovely as one would expect for the Ritz Carlton but the food falls far below the Ritz standards. The kitchen staff should be supervised by a proper chef.

The food was delicious and the view was spectacular. What was really impressive was the service. For the first time in a long while, I did not feel rushed through a meal. There was adequate time between courses to feel like we could really enjoy the dining experience. Our server seemed to intuitively know when we needed her but did not intrude unnecessarily.

Good for a special occasion, especially since it's quite pricey. The seafood was fresh except maybe the white clams. The meat, especially the lamb, was tender. The desserts were very pretty and interesting. There was a light lavender creamy dessert that I really enjoyed. The restaurant was warmly decorated. The service and wait staff were polite, friendly and attentive. The views were scenic and we had a lovely time walking along the cliffs.

OK, I spent $2000 for 6 of us but we drank a lot of wine and enjoyed a great time dining and hanging out on the Ritz Carlton property. The Sunday brunch feast is the "Mother of all buffets" at least in the Bay Area, totally awesome with caviar to boot and Ritz deluxe service. It's well worth it!

To start with the positive, my husband liked his divers scallops well enough. My smoked trout and roasted beets were a disappointing; the trout was fresh but hardly smoked and there was nothing to bind the two flavors; i honestly think that a line cook forgot to add the dressing. My spaghetti alla chitarra was drowning in a lake of butter; the saffron and fennel were neglible and the crab was ok. The pear and gingerbread looked like a terrarium; it was hard to get a bite that wasn't just a part of the whole--great idea that just didn't come together. Altogether disappointing and therefore overpriced.

We went to Navio for my birthday and had the meal of our dreams. From the first course to the last, our meal was incredible. The hostesses Logan and Inessa, as well as our waitress Pat were superb. In particular, Pat did a wonderful job pacing the meal and making us feel special. The ladies were the absolute best. The only demerit for the whole evening was the long wait for Chef to come over. "Chef, we only wanted to tell you that the meal was fabulous." Maybe he was too busy to meet with his fans.

We went here for our 10 year anniversary. I requested a table with an ocean view which we were accommodated. The service at this restaurant is second to none. Hands down the best service I have ever received. The food was excellent, as we're the desserts. After our dessert, the waiter brought out a nice gift wrapped box of truffles on a plate, which had written upon it, in chocolate, Happy Anniversary. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Disappointing is how I would summarize our experience at Navio. It is not what I expect from The Ritz-Carlton. Firstly, our server was not familiar with the items on the menu. He described the Dungeness Crab appetizer as "four pieces of cakes". We thought it was crab cakes. Surprisingly, the crab was served on fried nori which was delicious. Secondly, I ordered the Filet Mignon, medium well, and my partner ordered the Duck Breast. Both dishes were served simultaneously except that I received Rib Eye instead of Filet Mignon. Both dishes were returned to the kitchen while they prepared my Filet Mignon. It appears the kitchen rushed my order as the Filet came out butterflied. In my experience, the server would normally disclose that they will serve the steak "butterfly" since my preferred temperature was medium well. Of course, I was not informed of this otherwise I would have opted for a seafood entrée. Our server was non-existent throughout our dinner. We saw the bread lady more than him. In sum, food is excellent but management needs to revisit the service and staff development.

My wife & I had dinner at Navio and it was excellent. Our server, Horace, was extremely knowledgeable & a pleasure to talk to about food. He did a great job with the menu. And the scallops might be the best I have ever eaten - they are a must try. I am so glad we decided to try Navio on a Sunday - because the restaurant was closed on our second night at the hotel (Monday). I would go back in a heartbeat.

I came to Navio for a splurge day trip. Within the hour of arriving to the Ritz Carlton property I was engaged! Navio and the Ritz will forever be a special place in our lives. The food will not disappoint, the service is spectacular, and the views from any seat are stunning!!
I was full all day! The high quality of each dish is obvious with your first bite. The dessert section is plentiful and everything between the cheese and cold bar is worth numerous trips.

You will walk out with a dent in your wallet and a fully satisfied belly. Worth the money.
