The setting is beautiful. Beautiful ocean view and nice decor. The service is excellent. However, the food was not worth the price. It was ok but the great view and ambiance does not justify the price.

We commend Positivo for converting the restaurant into one of the best Sushi/Asian Restaurant in Puerto Rico. Chef Suttiphan for making it right.

Went there for a birthday celebration. 20 minutes to get water and drinks. Lighting in outdoor area was too bright. They agreed that it was way too bright but 3 asks to get it right. Wait staff distracted and annoyed but we don't know by what. Food very good but comes "when it is ready". Black miso appetizer came before dessert and we ordered it first. Sigh.

This is our third time to this restaurant. We make it a must every time we visit Puerto Rico and stay at our time share which is almost next door to the Ritz Reserve in Dorado. First of all the setting is gorgeous right off the pool and right next to the beach and ocean. Part of the restaurant the tables are actually in the sand. The food is unique and very imaginative and delicious. We have not had one bad dish yet. Actually the first time that we went to the restaurant we were not too familiar with sushi but after having tried many things that evening we now love sushi. Most dishes are good for sharing so you can try many dishes. Highly recommend this restaurant if in the Dorado area of Puerto Rico.

We had a wonderful "last night of vacation" meal. There were four of us and we ordered a variety of menu items. From the sashimi , sushi rolls, ceviche, to the duck confit and dessert (rice pudding!) it was all outstanding. We loved our meal! The ambiance is lovely and the service impeccable. We would come back tomorrow if we weren't leaving the island. I highly recommend spending an evening at Positivo, you won't be disappointed.

Great for sitting with feet in the sand and the most beautiful view - go at time of sunset to really enjoy! Food good but nothing special. Service not up to par for this level of restaurant- a lot of missed opportunities.

Positivo is positively our favorite restaurant on the island. They set the bar for how a Ritz Carlton property should be!
This wasn't our first time there but since our first time the servers remembered us down to what we drank and ordered to eat.
We were visited by the manager and chefs to welcome us back and ask how everything was.
I can't begin to express the level of professionalism that every single person here displays, even the hostess remembers us and spoke to us by name as we walked up.
If there is something better than first class, then Positivo is there.
I don't have time to talk about the atmosphere but beachside at sunset creates a "happy heart" moment.

Hotel restaurant. On the beach. Beautiful. Staff friendly, competent, motivated to make dining experience enjoyable. Food was great. From Chicago. Went on family vacation. Wife and three daughters ranging in age from 15 to 21. Everyone said it was their favorite dining experience. $18 parking fee with validation was a little surprising. But all in all great food and dining experience.

Positivo is a very nice restaurant with a magnificent view where you can watch the sunset. Food is great and service impeccable. Our waiter, Christian, was very attentive without being intrusive! It is was our second time there and hope to go back soon!

Beautiful restaurant on the beach at the Ritz Carlton Reserve. We had a great seat in the sand
with small tables and comfortable seats a bit removed from the rest of the restaurant. Perfect for our family of 6 with two young children. The small plates and sushi are varied and different and delicious. The tempura selections are out of this world. They had a very varied and different children's menu. The desserts also are delicious. The chocolate dessert was out of this world. We had a great dinner with our extended family. I almost forgot the view is out of this world and the ambiance is also terrific. You will not be disappointed.

Nice place, they need to use the fans because it gets warm. Not too many selections if you don't like sushi. The bar needs to stay open until at least 12

Since Chef Suttiphan took over the kitchen the Positivo Sand Bar the menu has become an amazing array of Fantastic Asian inspired dishes, fresh sushi, great innovative rolls and the best restaurant in the Ritz Carlton Dorado.

My wife daughter and I had Valentines dinner, had made reservations weeks in advance, but on arrival, told it was set menu, no idea about this until 7:00 pm at time of arrival. Limited menu with multiple dishes with shellfish, and unfortunately, I have shellfish allergies. This left fewer choice on set menu. It was price fixed menu, and we had few choices as to other dinning options, considering it was Valentines Day. Poor communication was the problem, and left us with few options, just like the menu. To add insult to injury as we entered the restaurant area, we told about the menu, it was dark out, and handed a menu without any light to read it. I felt asking for other reservation to eat at 7:00 was not realistic or fair for the hotel to come up with on short notice, to bad the restaurant did not have same consideration. Despite this still had a fairly enjoyable evening. Food was marginal, but I would not have chosen any of the items offered if I were selecting my own meal.

It was surreal--like a Hollywood movie set. The food was on small plates (Tappas style) but Asian & delicious. We ordered 2 plates each & shared among the 4 of us. That amount amount was sufficiently. The scallops & salmon were delicious. We just wished the dishes were spaced better. They came too quickly. Otherwise it was a very memorable evening. (Each one of the 4 of us ordered 2 dishes a piece)

We went to Positivo last week for the first time. It won't be the last. We arrived at 6:00 pm and we were able to watch the sun set into the ocean. It doesn't get much better than that. We ordered appetizers , ceviche, duck skewers, skirt steak and red snapper. They were all delicious, with red snapper being the favorite. We then shared an order of tempura shrimp. Once again, it was delicious. We ended the evening with several orders of makii, probably the best sushi we have eaten. Our waiter was personable and attentive. The chef even made an appearance to our table. It will be difficult to eat anywhere else in Dorado. Positivo has set the bar very high!
