Overall very well presented. But, the food and service is not exactly what we would have expected for a 700 dollar meal for two.

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel restaurant.
The pre fix menu is a good value and the portions substantial. And most importantly, tasty. I think we will return soon to try the Chef’s tasting menu.

The tasting menu was an appetizer, main and dessert for $65, and you get to pick off of the main menu. Unbelievable steal, considering the price of each item if purchased separately. The portions were generous as well.

Everything was perfect as usual. However, upon check in at the front desk at Parallel 37 restaurant the hostess told us that the restaurant was closed. I looked at my watch and it was 9:08 PM. I told her I had a 9:15 PM reservation on Open Table and again she shook her head and said the restaurant was closed. I said can I speak to a manager and she walked away and came back and reluctantly seated us. The rest of our dining experience was perfect and outstanding with the exception of the front desk hiccup.

We had a party of 6 and the restaurant was not crowded and the service was ridiculously slow. But since the gratuity of 20% was already added they got a great tip for terrible service.

Great family dining deal of short ribs that served the three of us for $115. Very nice wine offering and priced appropriately. Very attentive service and noise level was quiet so that we could have meaningful discussions. Valet Parking validated for $15.

Very mice space however not worth $90 for brunch. Variety was ok but not what other buffet brunch at high end hotels would serve for less money. Very attentive waiter and friendly staff which made it good overall experience.

Went for Christmas day dinner. Food tends to be overseaoned and/or there are too many flavours on the plate to allow natural flavours to shine through. Tables were pretty close together.

We chose Parallel 37 for our Christmas dinner and it was an enormous disappointment. The meal cost us $536 for 3 adults and one child!! 2 adults had only a salad and the duck entree with paired wines. No desserts. The salad was lovely but the duck was not enjoyable. The 3rd adult drank no wines at all. The value was simply not worth it on any count.
The dining room was extremely noisy, cramped and had the feel of your average motel dining room. Such poor value for the price. We would not return nor recommend the restaurant.

We went to Parallel 37 at the Ritz for our family Christmas Eve brunch and it was pretty close to perfect. We were 5 adults, 1 toddler and 1 newborn, and the restaurant and staff were so accommodating and helpful -- from placing us at a table near a space to keep the stroller handy, to providing extra plates, highchair, and letting us partake of the buffet to share with the kids. It made this mom of 2 able to actually enjoy herself without having to be hyper on alert the whole time. The buffet menu was delicious, tastefully thought out, and nearly everything was spot on flavor-wise. Steak tartare with caviar, delightful horseradish foam/mousse accompanying the tenderloin, perfectly poached shrimp, and lobster benedict were high points. Highly recommend Parallel 37 for a special occasion outing or the brunch buffet. Beautiful decor and a great dining experience.

We had an enjoyable breakfast here -- the main restaurant of Ritz Carlton San Francisco -- on December 19th. Customer service was exceptionally high quality and the breakfast/brunch buffet was beautiful and delicious. A great experience overall. As a plus, the hotel had interior and exterior Christmas decorations that made it extra lovely.

We keep returning to Parallel 37 because we are always completely satisfied with our experience. The food is phenominal and the service is 5star. Outstanding bites during this last visit included an amazing octopus appetizer, a crazy good black cod main dish and a carmel orange dessert that made my husbands eyes roll back in his head.
