    Service slow, food subpar. The avocado toast was drenched in vinegar. Even worse, avocados were 75% black. They took it off the bill, but u should be able to eat breakfast at your hotel.

    We enjoyed dining at the restaurant. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent. The restaurant is rather small but the tables are spaced apart so the noise level is low -- conversation at our table was easy. The menu is a little limited, but it fits with the size of the restaurant.

    We chose to stay in the hotel for dinner for convenience understanding that the reviews for the restaurant are not stellar. The food was adequate and our waiter was charming. We were surprised at the distinct Ritz Carlton touch that was lacking here. They delivered our meal all at one time rather than salads first followed by entrees for a more relaxed meal. It created a lot of crowding on the table as well as a less enjoyable pace. There was no one to greet us for 10 minutes when we arrived for our reservations. It is adequate if you choose to dine here for the convenience, but it could be so much better.

    The meal was okay. Flavor was good but the ceasar salad had so much dressing I asked for more lettuce and even after mixing more in it was still more than enough. I know it is the Ritz but for the price the portions were small. No one was there to greet us at the host stand. Service was excellent as you'd expect.

    Degrees Bistro is a bar with lounge seating for dining. The room has dark walls and brown chairs. I did not like the ambience at all. There was 2 servers and no bartender. A hostess came in later and assisted at the bar. Our server made our mimosas and bloody Mary's. My first bloody was spicy and good. My friend ordered a bloody Mary but she did not like spicy. The server made another pitcher less spicy. I did not like the second bloody mary. It was weak and flavorless. Also, I ordered a hamburger medium rare. It was served medium well. I did not send it back because the server disappear for 10 -15 minutes. When she returned I advised the burger oowas not what I ordered. She apologized for preparation. My guests enjoyed their meals. Overall, I was very disappointed with the restaurant, food, service and costs for food and drinks. My bill was $225.00 plus tip $42.00=$267.00. I've dined at other Ritz Carlton hotels in DC and NYC with a much better ambience, decor, service and food. I will not return to Degrees Bistro.

    Not worth the money. You can get better elsewhere. Brunch lacks serious flavor and basic seasoning. Our home fries (potatoes) were really under cooked. Mostly everything lacked basic seasoning.

    Such a disappointment. I dont know why it got such good reviews. Just a regular, small hotel cafe. Service was awful and food was mediocre. Again, just like a regular hotel breakfast you could get many places. There was absolutely no signage either, so we thought we had to be in the wrong place.

    They had no one at the hostess station then when was seated had four diff servers which all were told would like wine list and it never came. On top of that an other table got there food before our simple porchetta and hamburger order. And on top of that when we told them we want to settle bill at the middle of eating we didn’t get it until all our food was gone. There was only 3 people dining at that time. The service was horrible. PLUS they never gave us the open table reservations points so had to go back next day and it took manager 30 min while I waited for her.

    This is nothing more than a glorified cafe. I’ve found the prices unreasonably high for what we got. The dulce de leche pancakes were as dry as toast. The chicken sausages were over cooked. Other dishes were good, but not great.

    This cannot be in a Ritz Carlton. The food was horrible and the service was just as bad. The stiped bass smelled and tasted fishy. I had to spit it out. My soup was brought at the same time as my entree. The waiter charged me for a full bottle of sparking water and only poured half. The waiter didn't tell us that we should order sides, as the entree doesn't come with any. We had to request for water refills (for those drinking tap). My friend also had the bass and didn't eat hers b/c it was so terrible. There was no hostess at the front and we had to inquire about seating from the bar (and no sign w/ instructions). The restaurant only had two other parties and THREE servers! Service was slow as well. They need to do a better job of training and ensure that the food is fresh. I would never go back to this restaurant again.

    It's just overpriced for what you get. We ended up with an $80 check for a meal I could have made at home. Everything was well-cooked and the ingredients were nice, but no originality. Also, they charge for bottled water instead of offering tap. The hotel is nice but the restaurant was almost completely deserted. Usually I like a quiet meal but it was just not worth the $. If there were a few lower-priced drink and meal options, or if they included sides with the entree (without raising the price of the entree) it would be an improvement.
