The food was amazing, and the waiter was also amazing. But the ambiance can get a little touch up.

Outstanding experience. Two of us were vegan and the chef made outstanding entrees. We had a 3 year old and there was a great children s menu. Our server was very polite as was the Maitre D. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We never fail to be amazed by Chef Michael’s creations. Each time we dine at Parallel 37, we say it can’t possibly get any better, but amazingly, we are blown away!

Thank you Chef, for another outstanding dinning experience.

It was a bit quiet, very few people but lovely. The ambiance is cold, and feels huge.

We experienced the tasting menu with wine pairing for my husband’s birthday. Not only was the food phenomenal and customized to our individual tastes, the service was fantastic! Our server described each of the wines and made personal recommendations about wineries to visit in neighboring regions. The hostesses sent us on our way with a mini bottle of champagne to keep us celebrating!

One of the best dining experiences in San Francisco, and I only wish for more special occasions to do it again in the future!

The food quality and presentation was a solid 5-Star and we would come back and eat here again. However, the room feels outdated and we felt that we were sitting in a Marriott breakfast room. No offense to Marriott, but we were expecting a Ritz dining experience, but it was missing elegance and glam. Our table was too close to the table next to us so our conversations were not private unless we whisper. The service was great but for a pre-fixe dinner, they shouldn’t have clear my husband’s plate before I was done eating. Anyway, if you don’t have high standards like we did, and wanted to have a well-executed meal, Parallel 37 can deliver that!!

There were four of us enjoying dinner at Parallel. We were treated expertly - Justin our waiter was available but did not hover. They were generous and professional. Our dinners were delicious. All of us agree that we would return another time. (Not always a "given" when dining in SF).

The food and wine at Parallel 37 was delicious. My friend and I couldn’t decide on a wine, so we were then greeted with a complimentary glass of Sav Blanc while we perused the menu more. We then shared the charred octopus which was to die for. For dinner we shared the lamb pesto pasta and the beef Wellington, both of which were amazing! The lamb was unique and served in a way I’ve never seen before. Our waiter brought us each a glass of wine to go with each entree as well. With our check we also received macaroons and truffle chocolates on the house. Overall a fantastic experience! We will be back!

What a nice meal- like every meal, each time we ate there- breakfast lunch and dinner over the course of our stay- breakfast was very good, truffle and burrata omlette which was excellent...tater tots on the side a bonus! Lunch we had a turkey ruben and a chopped chicken salad- both excellent- and dinner was yummy- crab and caviar tacos? Yes please- perfect portion size, friendly servers....highly recommend

We received a call a few days prior to our dinner informing us that the restaurant had been sold out for a private event and that we would be moved to the lounge. We made a few simple requests, that being we would have a square table, non club seating, and full access to Parallel 37's dinner menu and we were assured that our dining experience would be as such. It was not. Our experience was noting short of appalling. After speaking to staff and management it was clear to us that they were not even willing to provide the most basic of effects. In light of that we chose to leave taking our patronage elsewhere.

Sadly, my aunt ordered 2 soft boiled eggs- they were hard boiled- just not something that should happen at a Ritz Carlton, especially at its price point.

I am a big fan of Ahi Tuna and their ahi tuna was unparalleled to any I’ve ever had. Incredible. All of the dishes seemed well thought out and decadent. Also enjoyed the vegetable ragoût. Amazing as well! Recommend heavily! Only downside was that there wasn’t a crowd in there and was quiet, but the food was 10/10.

Our first visit to Parallel 37 was amazing - every dish was outstanding, as was the service. Unfortunately the bar was set too high as our second visit was rather disappointing. Service was again amazing, but the food missed the mark. Salad was good, octopus was okay and duck was overcooked and tough, which at $115 was hard to overlook.
