A bit aggressive charging $15 for parking after paying for a somewhat overpriced menu (e.g. $48 for four scallops, $20 for about an ounce of mackerel).
Still, a lovely spot for dinner.

Cod skin is so salty that I have to drink plenty of water. Prime beef is also salty too.

The Sunday brunch is expensive AF ($120/person; $17.50/cocktail), but it's probably the best brunch buffet in the Bay Area. There were no foie gras or scallops, to which I was looking forward based on reviews, but the items that were available were very yummy, such as the caviar bar, raw clams and oysters, and dessert selection. The sushi and dim sum were, as you can imagine, just ok.

The tasting menu was horrid. White asparagus spears that were tough and cold. Gnocchi that were like a hockey puck, not light but a dough ball.

The food did not live up to a tasting menu with a price of $145. Very disappointing and recommend ala carte menu. Hope for the best or go elsewhere.

Best brunch so far! Better than at Fairmont, Four Seasons or Intercontinental Hotels. 😊👍 Yes, it was pricier than others as well.

View of Pacific Ocean, warm and courteous service, delectable selections of food and beautiful presentations are just few of the things we enjoyed.

Everything was just perfect. My family is pretty picky on food and service. They exceeded our expectation by far from food selections to food quality, from a scenic view to their attention to details at table settings, from the begging to the end. And, I love the fact that the kitchen was open to people and brought great small tapa style food continuously. They also presented food in small bowls/plates so that I was able to try all of them. All staff are friendly and very informative when I asked questions. Definitely, it will be our new Easter tradition to have brunch at Navio.

We met with Friends that live in the coast side of San Mateo county. We hadn't been to the Ritz in Half Moon Bay for 10 years as we weren't impressed the last time, but it's location was convenient.
I was extremely surprised that their Saturday Brunch was 89.00/ person, but thought we'd give it a try. The food quality was mediocre, the service was mediocre, the price was exorbitant for the quality. Four adults ( 2 couples), with parking ( 2 vehicles) was 417 plus tip with no alcohol, not even a glass of champagne... We were very disappointed and will not be back !

The Sunday brunch buffet is pricey but worth every penny. The buffet includes a caviar bar (with 5 different types of caviar), a raw bar, a carving station, sushi and sashimi, dim sum, crab and other shell fish, traditional breakfast foods, tasting bites of cooked fish and meats, fois, cheeses and cured meats, salads, and a fancy dessert section.

Navio is located in the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Half Moon Bay. The menu is relatively short and offers American/French food.The food is very good although the portions are small. A few vegetables with the main course should have been added. The wine list is quite good, although there is an excess of Pinot Noir wines and not enough good and reasonably priced Merlot, Zinfandel or Cabernet wines. The prices are very high - dinner for two with wine came to over $400. For that, I can go to Manresa which is way better.

We were at Navio to celebrate a retirement for 3 people in our party and a Bday for 1 person, so a dual celebration. The staff made sure both occassions and all parties received VIP recognition. From start to finish, it was a fabulous experience and great memory. A special thank you to Chris in the cocktail lounge, Denny and his assistant for excellent table service and to Jason, who prepared the MOST delectable fish dinners and artistic desserts. :)

My husband and I had our 27th wedding anniversary dinner at Navio and can't underscore our appreciation for the restaurant staff and kitchen crew . Their service was outstanding and super professsional. Food was awesome ! The view from the dining room overlook the ocean and were mesmerized watching the sunset . Special shout out to executive sous chef Beryl Adler who went out of his way to help make our anniversary even more special! We will be back !

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ritz Carlton for Valentine's Day. The Hotel was incredible but Navio restaurant was a huge disappointment. I expected decent quality at least but the food was terrible, over salted and poor quality. The meat was dry and stringy, the dessert was grocery store quality.
It was one of the worst meals I've had in a restaurant. Extra disappointing for Valentine's Day.

Food, service and ambiance were all as expected from a fine dining establishment. I take issue with some aspects of cost, even when considering the high end nature of the restaurant. Corkage was $50. Parking was $15, and you have no choice but to use their valet. Other than fish, there was one poultry selection, duck, and a $68 steak selection for main courses. The seasonal menu also had a beef selection - filet and short rib - for $55, if I recall correctly. $18 kids meals, including the usual chicken tender and french fries. $75 per person cancellation policy, if cancelling your reservation within 24 hours. All in all, we had a nice meal and may even go back, but caveat emptor, you will pay dearly at every turn.

Though both the food and service are very good, the price is a bit expensive for a Sunday brunch (even for the Ritz-Carlton, IMHO). Regular price $110 and special event $145 (Valentine's Day), plus automatic 20% service fee.

Venue was beautiful and a wonderful view of the ocean from the window tables. The atmosphere was nice and intimate with tables separated well. Food quality was average while being fairly pricey. Most upsetting was having to pay for parking while dining at this venue as only valet parking is available and after discount was still $10 plus tipping the driver.
