Went there last night and have been there a few times before for apps, breakfast, and drinks. This time was for dinner and it fell way below the par line. Servers were great and all was going well until the main course was served. My wife’s steak ( KC aged steak) came out and had the worst pungent smell ever. It was horrible. I ordered the same exact steak and mine didn’t have any bad smells. The smell was so bad it unfortunately ruined her whole meal. I usually don’t complain, but the smell was horrible and I sent it back and told the server not to worry about replacing it because it upset her stomach and she doesn’t feel like eating now. The manager did return to the table and try to make the excuses that is how dry age smell.... this is not true at all. I have gone to numerous steak houses and have had dry aged and never once have myself or anyone I was with have a pungent smelling steak. Anyways, I ate my steak and it was good, but it ruined the dinner for sure and took away from the entire night. To compensate the server said he would not charge me for the steak the chief agreed was “ bad smelling”... lol I mean no TEMP_OC_CONTENT_HEREamp;@!. She didn’t eat it and it was spoiled meat. However, I still received my 350.00 bill with 20% gratuity included.... mind blown. Your are a high end restaurant and you ruin my night and that’s all you do? And you add gratuity? You get a tip based on service and the server was great. Don’t ruin my meal and night and still slap a guaranteed tip for yourself. I was polite the entire time as was the server and I would have taken care of the server as it wasn’t his fault, but I feel it was placed because of my disappointment in the overall experience. Then as I was leaving the extremely nice hostess who is there every time we go, asked how it was and I replied “ it was great except for hers” the manager was there and replied some smart comment about not being for everyone.

My wife and I went on a double date with friends last Saturday night. Excellent food. I had the lamb, the rest of the table enjoyed the snapper, salmon, and spare ribs. The lava cake was also great. The only things that could have been better were the oysters(raw ones were extremely small) and the service. We waited nearly 30 min for my credit card to be taken and that was after having to flag our waiter down. Overall a great experience!!!

We stayed ay the Ritz-Carlton for 4 days and after our first meal at AG, which is the hotel dinning room, we ate 99% of our meals there. We saw so many things on the day and night menu, we had to keep coming back. The food was impeccable and creative. They have a seasonal menu which we also like. There buffet breakfast on the weekend is quality and not just quantity. The drinks were a good pour. The staff was wonderful, from Jennifer at the front, Gerald the ever vigilant manager and every single sever and supporting staff member of the food team. Thanks for a great weekend and 65th birthday.

The food here was delicious. Our waiter was impeccable and the experience starts right when you walk in. We were in town for a convention and made a reservation, we were seated quickly and the food was delicious. The macaroni and cheese was phenomenal and so was everything else we ordered. This was a wonderful experience and one we will be adding to our plans every year for Dragon Con.

I was excited about having my Birthday Lunch at the Ritz.
There were plenty of empty tables and I do not understand why we were placed in the middle and not by a window with a view. It was not busy.
When the waitress came, she did not acknowledge or ask what my husband wanted to drink, only me. I asked for water with lime and she brought my husband a water but he wanted a Diet Coke, however she never asked him.
I was just so disappointed to be honest. I eaten at a lot of locations at the Rot but the service was not like I was accustomed to.

The AG delivers on all counts: food, creativity, service, atmosphere, and value. That last one is important, because it's not about what you pay - it's about what you get for what you pay. Here, you pay a lot and get a whole lot more. You can choose courses that actually don't cost much more than other high- end places, but are much better. And you can choose courses that are much more expensive and simply unavailable anywhere else. Youe tongue will overrule the little accountant's voice in your head, if you give the food a taste.
This meal, I had the tomato soup (not very special) and the new york strip with foie gras on pureed sweet potato plus a side of creamed corn. The steak and the creamed corn were - in a word - magical. Philip, my server, was full of good advice and he recommended a local Belgian- style dark ale that was kicker.
This was a special meal, and if you have a special occasion, the AG will not disappoint. If it does disappoint, you should retire to your castle and have your personal troupe of chefs do their usual ;-)
By the by, I can count - now - three times in the last 38 years that a host / hostess has called me by name as I walked up as a total starnger - this was one of them, pretty impressive.

My husband and I found this open table and went there for our date night. It is in the Ritz so it has a very nice ambiance. We ate on the outdoor patio with fans and it was perfect. Our food was delicious. I had baked oysters and the seared scallops special. My husband had the bisque and cowboy steak. Every was cooked to perfection with perfection seasoning and flavor. We will definitely come back.

Pricey but worth it for a special occasion. My colleague and I ordered the rack of lamb and the Kansas City strip--both exceptional, melt-in-your-mouth, rich flavor selections. For our app, we went with the beef tartare, also excellent. The cocktails were ho-hum at best. I'd recommend wine, honestly, which also won't be cheap.
