Excellence from the time of arrival. The Asian style octopus was delicious. The local lamb again makes one appreciate how excellent is farm to table. The highlight of the evening was asking our server if, instead of oysters on the half shell, the chef could prepare a pan saute. No problem and would you like garlic and olive oil? The preparation was divine! Thanks to all at Parallel 37 for making our dining experience so special.

Great service but limited options for a Sunday brunch. If you are a guest at the hotel the options are basically the same as the concierge breakfast with the exception of eggs made to order and bar service.

We have stayed at the Ritz many times but had never tried Parallel 37. The menu was small in terms of choices but we found some delicious items. We shared the potato beignets and chicken salad. Both were excellent. I had the chicken and hubby had the duck. Also very good flavors. We dined early so the noise was moderate but several big parties were scheduled later. We enjoy peace and quiet so we can enjoy our meal. Our waiter wasn't the most friendly but we had good service from others. They need to broaden the menu more.

Chef Michael Rotondo never fails to deliver an exquisite menu. Made from produce bought that morning from the farmer's market. His creations are not only pleasing to the eye, but also to the palate. I have eaten at various Michelin restaurants in the city, and Parallel 37 surpasses any of them. I think Michelin is asleep at the wheel, or they are no longer the prestigious outfit they used to be. I cannot fathom why this restaurant has not been granted a star! Wake up Michelin!

For 35 years I've taken my wife to an interesting restaurant in San Francisco for Valentine's Day. We eat out three to four times a week so it's always a challenge to find something special for just the two of us. For many years we went to a very special restaurant, now closed. With Parallel 37 we've found the right place for a traditional very special dinner. Menu, food, wines, service, all A+ in one of The City's most historic buildings. The Ritz should know how to do it and they do here.

Parallel 37 is the best kept secret in San Francisco. The food is spectacular. The service is exceptional. The price ain't cheap but it's actually a better value than similar high-end restaurants in town. It is far and away our favorite place!

service was outstanding. from the hostess, to the bussers, and our main server. everyone went above and beyond. the food was good. I thought there could've been a few more side dish/selections. for eg: pasta salad or something. it was mostly cereals, breads and fruit. we don't eat meat or fish, so it was a pretty boring spread for being a Christmas breakfast buffet. we thought that maybe even 3 or 4 simple side dishes would've made it more fun. some pasta dishes for sure. we did like that we were able to order eggs any style from our server. overall it was good and we are planning to come back again next Christmas for breakfast. we just hope there is a little more selection.

Service: Despite reservations and empty restaurant, it took 10 minutes to seat our table. A walk-in that arrived after our group (of 2) was seated before us.

After seating, service was prompt.

Food: Prix fix menu was tasty, but I'd expect more attention to detail, given the cost. My husband's first plate had a visible bug wading in the sauce.

The wine pairing was incredible. Worth every penny.

Ambience: Good. No complaints.

The food & service were stellar. We had Black Cod & scallops. That & the accompaniments were very good. Our waiter, Carl, was .
We also ate Christmas dinner here. It was truly exceptional: started with chestnut soup for both (truly unique & delicious), mushroom ravioli & beef tenderloin for one of us (both were truly outstanding); Dungeness crab cake & duck for the other (both were superb) as were the accompaniments. We have eaten Christmas dinners at great restaurants for many years. Most were disappointing due to what tasted like "mass production". BUT Parallel 37 really outdid them all - a rare, award winning dinner. Our waiters Zack & Albert made our entire Christmas dining experience at the Ritz, perfection.

$149 per person Thanksgiving dinner. Terrible food, terrible service. Nothing seems to be working - food were brought out in the wrong order, wrong table, cannot get any attention from the servers. For $700+, it was the worst experience I had at Ritz-Carlton hotel/restaurant.
Never go back to this hotel and this restaurant ever again.

Second Sunday brunch buffet from 11:00 to 2:00 pm. $150 per person. I thought it was overpriced and should have been no more than $90. Compared it to the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton and thought this one came up short. There are better brunch buffet values in San Francisco, especially for this price.

The Ritz Carlton San Francisco Sunday brunch at $115.00 plus tax, plus tip totaling about $145.00 per person all in is a lot to pay for a breakfast meal. Because this brunch was presented by the restaurant at the San Francisco Ritz Carlton I had great expectations that the food would be outstanding, so I put aside my trepidation about the cost. Well, don't be fooled by the brand name. I found this brunch to be a meager offering; in selection, quality , and well the food was nothing special. There was no fruit offered of any kind. Orange juice only, provided in my glass by the waiter. The only bread or bakery product was a French bread flute at a table next to three cheese that were odd. There were no croissants, no sweet or savory rolls, no breads; nothing but the French bread flute. There was a chaffing dish of short-rib eggs benedict that was cold, old and awful. The hollandaise tasted to me as if it was from a mix and the eggs were water-logged. There were NO other egg offerings. There was an offering of a braised salmon morsel presented in a tiny ramekin like dish that was not satisfying. There were cold, peeled shrimp and crab claws which were good, but these were the only seafood offerings except for the salmon bits. There was some kind of generic sushi people avoided. There was a roasted bison offering and a pork belly tidbit, no other meats. The deserts were mostly half-hearted pudding like offerings and there were a couple of mediocre truffle like candies. No cakes, or pies, or pastries, or anything I would consider a dessert. There was a self-serve bloody Mary pitcher with condiments, but I don't drink so that was not a high point. Even if I did, the presentation was token. In my personal opinion this Sunday brunch was a colossal disappointment and left a huge cash hole in my pocket. Take some advice and pass on this one. And if this is what going out for a Sunday brunch has degraded to you are much better off staying at home and cooking for yourself.
