Navio is a superlative place to take a special someone on a romantic occasion. We went on Valentine's Day for a prix fixe evening dinner. Mind you, it is expensive; so be prepared to pay $400 or more for a couple, not including drinks. The ambiance, the sun setting over the ocean as the bag-piper plays outside your window may well all be worth it.

Food is just OK, nothing really special; extremely expensive for what it is - not great value for money; 20% service charges imposed seems a bit too much for a buffet service

Food was excellent. Decent wine selection. If you want a window table for dinner get there early. Had requested one in my reservation however they seat those based on a first come first serve basis. Dante was an excellent waiter, attentive and willing to find answers if he didn't have them upfront.

Navio did disappoint. Such a spectacular view, such a poor performance. The tables dont have tablelcloths and look terrible. The whole ambiance lacks detail. Menues were stained. Main Course was served before we have finished our starter. Empty plates were not cleared. Food was decent, but then again you are paying a steep price for it and it should be good. I am aftraid being the restaurant at a Ritz Carlton you dont have to try so hard. Guest will always show up. But i will not go back there.

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.

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.

I took my staff to dinner for Christmas and also a night at the hotel. Our dinner was amazing though our server wasn’t very attentive to our table. He was polite but just seemed distracted though it wasn’t very busy.

Also, the entrance to the restaurant, that weird hallway is terribly inviting. Where do people standing even waiting to be seated. We had a confirmed reservation but stood by the door to the kitchen for ten awkward minutes.

Overall however, the dinner was fantastic as was the Ritz, as always.

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.
