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!

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 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.

My wife and I got a hotel in the city to have a nice Christmas dinner and see the Nutcracker ballet. The ballet was beautiful but I will never know how dinner would have been. They somehow didn't have our reservation although we had emails and text confirmations. I don't know if it was OpenTable or the restaurant, but my wife and I don't get many nights off and one of you absolutely ruined our Christmas dinner

We have been going to the Ritz for a holiday lunch for 18 years. We sit in the bar and have burgers and an outrageous bottle of wine. The waitstaff is usually incredibly nice and knowledgeable and generally recognize us since we live close by. The woman behind the bar today was probably the worst service we’ve ever had. She was just rude and somehow bothered yet we were the only ones at the bar. There was no sommelier working so we asked her advice to which she replied “I have no idea”. We ordered two glasses of Kistler Chardonnay which took 10-15 minutes while we waited for a 2007 Araujo we ordered to breath. The women forgot to order the Araujo and delivered our burgers. We asked about the wine and she said she had to go to the cellar to get it so we asked if they could hold off on the burgers as we weren’t in a rush and they were just a compliment to the wine we ordered. They put the burgers under a heat lamp so they were super dry and burnt on top when they brought them back 10 min later (sans accoutrements like their homemade ketchup) jams just opened the bottle of Wine and poured it instead of decanting it. I realize complaining about a $600 lunch for 2 people is a first world problem but this is our one special tradition every year and has always been an incredible time at the Ritz. This makes me want to find a new spot for next year.

Disappointing meal for Thanksgiving. Started well enough with Dom by the glass - Yeah! The butternut squash soup - why is everybody doing butternut squash soup this year? - was fine, with some Christmas spices for accent. A salad was fine, nothing special. A black truffle gnocchi appetizer with braised short rib and miniscule. Kind of embarrassing for a $150 meal.

The Turkey was pedestrian at best. Lacking flavor and inspiration, the dish and sides came across like a catering dish. Really, the meat was flavorless, and some of it was tough. Gravy - bland. Stuffing was gritty and dull. Roasted carrots lacked freshness and sweetness - dull. Only the mashed potatoes - a minor nod to Robechon with the amount of butter - stood apart.

Honestly, when you go to the Ritz for a special occasion, you should expect the kitchen to rise to the occasion and innovate. It was very sad to see no inspiration to elevate the mundane bird. I do way better at home because I am inspired to excel. But not from this kitchen. So sad!
