I love eating here at the Ritz Carlton. The service the atmosphere and the ambiance was excellent as always. The only issue I had was that the food value and size seems to have decreased and I can only imagine that it is related to the current Pandemic and limited supplies.

Nice ambiance and tasty food for a peaceful brunch.

The kale salad and Philadelphian toast were very flavorful and fresh. But the menu is overall very limited.

Got an acknowledgement for the special occasion I was celebrating but nothing more.

I have been here before Covid and had a wonderful time ....

They just open up ... the drinks came in plastic cups and tasted horrible. Worst cocktail mix.

Appetizer chips and guacamole, chips tasted old.

The food came in to go containers plastic everything

Plastic forks and knifes!!


The food wasn’t as good as before.

My date was like this is at the Ritz ?!

I said it wasn’t like this before.

He’s like Rittenhouse square doesn’t give you drinks in plastic and the flatware is not plastic.

I said I don’t know what happened here. Sad.

Good Day, I want to first apologize for your mediocre experience. We have listened to our guests and have begun to make many changes. We are again serving on China, utilizing silverware and Glassware. We have begun to move away from the opening menu, and expand the food offerings. In addition most exciting we have brought back brunch service. Please keep an eye on our social media as we will continue to showcase new food and beverage offerings as they become available again at Aqimero.

It was advertised that there was outside seating and there was none.It was in the lobby of a hotel not separated and the food that was served was given to us in containers meant for room service.I chose this place because it was advertised with nice outdoor seating and the temperature was gonna be nice it was my wife and I six year wedding anniversary.Either open table needs to verify when these places advertise they have certain features because we had two drinks and left for a better restaurant.

Breakfast. They substituted without our consent - skirt steak and Eggs for hangar steak and eggs. Maybe they thought we wouldn’t know the difference between our steaks. Hmmm. . Also eggs with bacon on does not mean I want my eggs on top of my bacon. Seems like the chef could have been in a bit of a rush since we ordered close to the end of breakfast serving. I will add the management did apologize for the steak and did not charge us. And so, we will return and try it again.

This was my first time to Aquimero. I was impressed. The ambiance is amazing, with views of a domed ceiling and Georgian marbled columns.
In the background you can view the Chef's amazing work with a wood fired oven through a glass wall.
The cocktail menu, appetizers, and dinner selections are varied, but not too many options.
All the drinks were prepared well and delicious
The food was cooked to perfection, including the churrasco board, and cheese steak empanadas.
The dessert selection and existing options could use improvement.
The service was amazing! Our waiter Bobby was great, honestly, he could've been serving me food from Wawa and it would've been a great evening.
My spouse and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary and the staff went out their way to procure additional candles to add to our dessert.
The coffee and cappuccino, post dinner, was fantastic as well!
My next visit here will be for Brunch as I've heard that the brunch was great here also.

This was my second time to Aqimero, first time for brunch. I highly recommend it, both times both the service and food have been great. Brunch is hard to beat, $50 for unlimited food and brunch drinks. We were a group of four and I think we tried every single thing on the brunch menu, why not when it's all included? The pork belly and chicken/waffles are absolutely delish. We will return!

We went on Sunday Feb 16th after staying the night in the Ritz. Service was the worst. We didn’t even get napkins. Both my wife and I used the ones that wrapped the toast when it was delivered. I asked the hostess if they were understaffed and they just ignored me. First impressions make an impact and I won’t ever be back here. Too many good places to eat in Philly. Food was not bad but the prices were not justified

The octopus was really good but about all other dishes, the just need to step it up to be a restaurant that charges at that level. Preparing scallops at that level requires finesse, one o did not see.

Wonderful dinner, our server Bob was very attentive & patient with our group....unfortunately bartender was not as reliable, had to return a margarita twice until she made it as advertised. Food was delicious & good portion sizes. Enjoyed the tomahawk steak, octopus & crab guacamole the best!

Asked waiter to replace a lukewarm cup of coffee that he had just brought to me and was nicely told it would take ten minutes to make a fresh pot. Ten minutes later he brought back a very strong, bitter tasting cup that seemed to have been heated in a microwave. I don’t recommend the fish tacos -small portion, deep fried along with breaded fried potato sticks.
