Amazing food, service and ambiance... Just wish that they would've told us about the NYE dining price mark up. We paid $500 when we were only expecting about $350.

We definitely plan on returning in the future where the average is about $95pp.

I thought the food was nothing special especially for the exorbitant price they charged on Christmas day. I won't return and cannot recommend it to others.

We came from Reno to spend Christmas with our daughter and her husband. We decided to have Christmas dinner at Parallel 37 because of the great reviews. Everything was perfect with the exception of a crying baby during dinner. The only disappointment was the way the people were dressed. This was Christmas dinner in a high class hotel restaurant and it looked like a Denny’s. I wish you would consider having a dress code for special occasions.

Our server was outstanding. The food was exceptionally good. The bill, however, was very high - much more than we had anticipated due to 2 prior Christmas Eve and Day meals here. And a mother with a new baby had not learned yet that when the baby is fussing and then crying very very loudly throughout 3/4 of our meal, you take the baby out of the restaurant & do NOT disturb everyone else's dining enjoyment on Christmas Day.

The food was amazing. I cannot say enough about the creativity of the entrees and the delicious flavors. This would be a foodie mecca. However, the ambiance was a bit stark and lacked the coziness that would lend itself to slowly enjoying a meal and sipping on wine. Coziness matches tantalizing tastes. Austere matches dishes with little imagination and border on traditional. The bartender and staff were thoughtful and engaging. Service was perfectly timed.

I sat at the bar because I was dining solo. The bartender was friendly, informative and provided great service. The food was delicious and each course ordered was described by the server when it was delivered to me. An amuse bouche was an unexpected, delicious way to start my meal

Quaint spot near Union Square to grab a bite, especially during the holidays. Lightly attended the early December Friday night we were there brought some early concern that was obviated quickly by the excellent waitstaff service & solid menu and thus resulting dishes. The signature seared calimari was excellent as advertized, though the steak was a bit light on flavor. Great oysters on the half-shell paired well with the oxtail pasta & basic but tasty wine-by-the-glass list.

Chef Michael and his amazing team nailed it! (once again)

As a foodie, who travels for work and knows chefs and great spots, I am amazed that this place is not packed, day in and day out. Maybe because it's at the Ritz Carlton Hotel? In NYC or London, it doesn't matter where the restaurant is as long as it's good. What if it was a food truck, then the locals would come? Come on people, get over it...

Chef Michael is one of the countries best chefs and the location, food, presentation, and wine list are top draw. Amazing dinner with friends and co-workers. I see this place getting a Michelin star soon!

Get out there SF!

Excellent food and service. Very creatively prepared and served. Zach, our server, was outstanding with food and wine recommendations and made the evening very pleasant. Crab tacos, seared octopus, lamb and halibut were outstanding. Cheese plate for desert was excellent. Great evening.

Seated at a great window table, albeit chairs designed for tall people. I had the delicious seafood risotto which I paired with a DuMOL 2013 Chardonnay served by the glass. Wait staff very attentive. Do make a reservation.

Service was very good, but the initial service wasn’t anywhere near the Ritz-Carlton gold standard. Menu looked excellent, but only two vegiarian options: avocado toast, and oatmeal, both at $16-18 left me and my guest hungry and disappointed.

Modern décor and modern cuisine connect in this space. The food has actually improved, there is greater attention to mouth feel and texture, and the flavors are more nuanced. Service was attentive and engaging, and made our evening a delight. The Chefs Tasting Menu was a modern whirl through the world, textures and flavors and presentation that spoke of a caring and thoughtful palate in the kitchen.

Plating was VERY outstanding. I couldn't stop being excited about what the next plating would look like. However, I did request that I did not eat certain meat and one dish was something I could not eat. However, I passed it on to my boyfriend since I was getting full anyways. But regardless of the tiny mistake service was GREAT.

Found on Open Table based on reviews and location to hotel. The restaurant is a very small bistro with great service and amazing food. The menu may be a little limited; but that just means the food they prepare is amazing. I’d recommend the Crab Cake to start and the Toulouse inspired cassoulet! All in all a good night out.

The food, wine and service were on par with what you’d expect from a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton. The restaurant was moderately busy but very quiet. They don’t try to cram extra tables like many SF restaurants. The menu was diverse enough to satisfy just about any taste.

The food and service were good but they seated us (party of 2 for anniversary) at a table for 2. The lighting was very bright, not cozy or romantic. It felt more like a hotel ballroom than a restaurant.
