The service with this particular waiter is not good. It is not the first time he has been our waiter. He is arrogant and not attentive. He has been there for many years- I will definitely request a differed section if I dine there again as he has been this way every time. There was no attention paid to our table by anyone else as well to fill water or clear plates etc. which made it seem even worse this time. I expect a higher lever of service ( in this dining experience ANY service) at this restaurant based on prior experiences there and the class of restaurant they place themselves in.

Left a bracelet at the table Called 30 min later. “They couldn’t find it”. Very valuable bracelet. I would understand if this was Hooters !

Great food and service. Especially like how you can do half orders of most of the menu items!

Overall the service was terrible. The host and the waiter were rude, absent, or maybe just burned out - but the result was a 4 hour debacle.

Service was good but unfortunately one order of salmon wasn’t fully cooked. It was sent back, and the second was also undercooked. Meal was comped and free dessert given with many apologies. My salmon meal was flavorful though salmon was slightly dry but overall it was tasty. Filet mignon was delicious; yet it was ordered as medium and arrived more medium-rare but no need to send back to the kitchen. I’d certainly come again, just think the kitchen was a little off tonight.

Our only disappointment was making a reservation for the buffet and they dis not have it the day we visited. However everything else was marvelous and very detail was managed beautifully.

Food was good, but not as great as some have come to claim. Service was a whole other story. Not good at all would be an understatement.

Ignored for long spells, and one server could not speak a lick of English to save himself. Sorry to be so critical of it, but if my establishment was to put someone front and center like that we make certain that they can communicate clearly and properly. Very embarrassing to have to ask someone to repeat themselves several times over.

For a high end hotel like the Ritz to have this poor dining rest as part of their service is short sighted. We had two meals at AG and both were horrible and inedible. For lunch we shared the smoked salmon which arrived with a cold bagel and the salmon was brown as if it was left out for several days. When we told our server we were advised that’s how is comes. After the peach bowl we returned for dinner and I ordered the Iceberg salad which was half a head of lettuce with very little blue cheese or bacon. After two bites I was done. Next we shared for the AG bakes potato where we were told it was huge and should be shared. What arrive was a quarter of a potato each lacking any toppings. You should be ashamed to call your self a restaurant

Food was mediocre at best and service was unforgivable. For a dinner at a price point of over $150 per head there was no excuse for an experience that quite frankly took the enjoyment out of our Christmas night. Our server came to our table a maximum of 5 times throughout the 2 hour meal, and after food arrived did not check on us for at least 15 minutes, meanwhile the restaurant was maybe 3/4 full by the time we left and not even 1/2 full when we arrived. I've never had such a poor service experience at a fine dinning restaurant. The only time he was hovering around the table was after he dropped the check, which was rather uncomfortable given the quality of service we received. There was a table of over a 15 people (different waiter) who was seated 15 minutes after us that got through their entire meal and finished 30 minutes before us, despite us ordering before they even sat down. In terms of food the octopus appetizer was slimy and chewy, the steak which was ordered medium rare was tough and chewy (very well done) around the outside (1.5 cm in) and ice cold in the center, the asparagus was stringy and overcooked that had no flavor. The mushrooms and Mac and Cheese were good as well as the peach dessert, but that was about it. The Ritz should be ashamed and think twice about associating this quality of dinning with their name brand. Complete disappointment.

Could not have asked for a better experience. We went to AG to celebrate my husband’s birthday, and everyone was incredibly involved in wishing him a happy birthday. We were seated immediately and our waiter was so attentive. The food exceeded all expectations; the steak was so tender and melt in your mouth delicious. Everything came out in a timely manor and they ended the night with a delicious peach birthday dessert. I have already recommended this place to anyone that will listen. We will be back.

Our food was great, location was in the Ritz-Carlton in Atl. We ordered the nightly special, Tomahawk steak, bottle of wine, two sides and a baked Alaska. Food was great and so where our sides. Our server was very nice but our issue was it took 30 minutes to get our bottle of wine. And then it came right with our meal. We even asked about it twice and where told it was coming up from the wine cellar. We where not in a hurry but would have liked to enjoy the wine before dinner. This was my only complaint as the steak was great. My recommendation is if your offering a nightly special it’s a good idea to keep the wine close by. The restaurant was not busy at all but it was Thanksgiving weekend and Alabama was playing Auburn. I would return as food was great and the staff was friendly.

Terrible ‘rushed’ service. Extremely salty food. So much salt on the asparagus that it no longer tasted like asparagus. I want my $320 back:(

The food and ambiance were very good, but our waiter never mentioned the price of our margaritas. $144 for two margaritas is ridiculous regardless if you’re at the Ritz or somewhere else.
