The lobby of the Ritz was beautiful upon entry. The dining experience left something to be desired. The table we were seated at was very dirty, the portions were incredibly small and slightly overpriced. The ambiance was strange in that it truly felt like you were in a hotel lobby given the number of guests carrying luggage through the restaurant.

Overall nice experience, def recommend the Queso Fundido with Chorizo! I do think the mixed drinks were a bit pricy, but otherwise it was a nice experience.

I am honestly surprised by my experience here last night when I celebrated my birthday with a few of my friends. You would think that an upscale restaurant like Aquimero would provide top-notch service, however that was absolutely not the case. I felt completely disrespected by my waitress from the way that she was aggressive and sassy with my group. Perhaps she was having a bad night, but you should not take it out on your customers. By this I mean spilling drinks on my friends, interupting me multiple times, forgetting my water, and trying to kick us out after our dinner. It was obvious that she did not care about our table and was just trying to do her job to go home. She was not classy at all by the way she harshly grabbed our plates and when I told her I still wanted to work on my water, she went, “umm, okay?”..

We visited for a lovely brunch on Saturday. The menu is creative and tasty albeit a la COVID to order and tends toward smaller plates. Service was very attentive and the setting is a Philadelphia landmark and just beautiful. This is a good choice and rather a relaxed pace as well - nice break!

I get that it’s a pandemic, times are tough, resources low, but when I feel like I can make everything better, including the watery drink with too much lemon juice and hardly any tequila, then the perceived value is quite low. This is a restaurant in the Ritz. I expected more. I think it will get better so I will try it again.

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.
