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.

A pleasant surprise when looking for a restaurant near Masonic Auditorium on Nob Hill. Pricey, but will go again for a nice occasion. The best scallops I've ever eaten. Beautiful dessert. Wait staff was friendly and informative. Pretty interior design. Overall a great experience.

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!

Sleeper Alert! We were blown away by the creativity, quality, and outstanding value at Parallel 37. The 3 course menu for 65 bucks was a steal. We got the butternut-lobster soup and the garganelli pasta for appetizers, and the duck breast and the lamb for entrees. All were beautiful and perfect in every way. So were the desserts. Service was also top notch. To make it all even better, we were able to get a reservation on a Saturday afternoon for a table that evening at 730. How can that be? This place is a total sleeper. I will be going back as much as possible before it gets too popular.

Just when I think chef Michael Rotondo cannot out do himself, he proves me wrong! I am baffled at how creative he is and the flavors all meld and complement each other. The textures also make the dishes very interesting.
He served up the most incredible 5 course meal this past Saturday.
We had been to BIX, the evening prior and though the food was good, Michael blew them out of the water with his creations.
People, if you have never experienced a dinner at Parallel 37, you are missing out on the best culinary experiences in the city!

This is a very nice restaurant. The decor is a sleek and modern with a slight rustic component. The ambiance is nice and cozy. The service is attentive. The food was excellent. There are choices if you are vegetarian, which is a big plus. The wine list is extensive. The drink/wine list is presented on iPad, which I thought was a nice touch. Overall I was very happy with my experience.

I thought the Brunch menu was underwhelming. It was very Marriott business hotel level of food quality. Americano coffee was mediocre. The eggs for the eggs Benedict were not organic and the bread was overly sour. The Benedict was essentially flavorless.

Service was OK, but definitely lacked the level of attention that I remember a Ritz Carlton having before they were bought by the Marriott.

I won't be returning for Brunch as it is just not worth it. No major redeeming qualities of the restaurant environment to warrant a return given the options in San Francisco with superior food and ambiance.
