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.

We had an exceptional dinner. The menu now offers several entrees to be shared. We had the duck - a full crisp duck. It would easily have served three and it was very good. To start, one can order a half portion of the pasts which were also excellent.
Not inexpensive but worth it.

I had a nice dinner at Parallel 37. It was easy to make reservations and the host accommodated us even though we were one hour late! My husband and I decided to be spontaneous and opted for the chef tasting menu. The tasting menu came with amuse bouche, appetizer, 3 small entrees (1 fish and 2 meat dishes), a sorbet for palette cleanser, and dessert. I thought each dish was well prepared and tasty. The ingredients were fresh and nicely put together. The service was also very good - the servers were friendly, refilled our drinks and bread promptly, and were knowledgeable of the menu. I also enjoyed the ambiance because the restaurant wasn't too noisy, which is somewhat hard to find these days.

I booked for parallèle 37 , the main restaurant
When I arrived , they put us in the lounge as the restaurant is not open during lunch

You should not be able then to book it on opentable
Very disappointing
The lounge menu is definitively not the same
But quality was good still

We dine at Parallel 37 regularly. The service is always outstanding. The food is usually excellent. I loved the butternut squash soup (appetizer) and the scallops (entree). However, I was extremely disappointed with the desserts though. I’ve never sent back a dessert, but I found two of the desserts to be tasteless, poor presentation, and bad quality. I asked if they had a new pastry chef, and we were told no. But I was very disappointed in the dessert selections.

Inside the Ritz, I had high hopes for Valentine's and the restaurant didn't disappoint. Their Prix Fix menu was worthy of a Michelin star. Great service as well. Great wine selection.

However... On the way out, and this isn't part of the restaurant review, as we were picking up our car from the valet, a 5 dollar bill dropped out of my pocket. Valet took it, didn't return it. I saw him do it but wife asked me to let it go. Very unpleasant!

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.
