                                Price per person, very disappointing. Was informed via phone that it’s newly $105 pp, increased from the past $95. But final price per person turned out to be $135, a $30 price difference pp over what I was informed via phone prior to making the reservation

                                The DJ was too loud, thankfully they had him turn down a bit into our meal. Not the right music for that setting. Beautiful location, great staff, food was mostly excellent. Oysters were very tasty but our second dozen had a lot of pieces of shell in the them from sloppy opening, the crab cake was a little burnt tasting, and the chocolate cake was dry. Fish dip was excellent, the biscuits are incredible, so good we got an extra order to take home.

                                We waited for 30 minutes until a server took our order and had to flag someone down to just get water 15 minutes after sitting. Our food then took 1 hour to arrive at the table - we ordered 3 omelets.

                                Very special service provided by Edmon and Yiannis. Beautiful outdoor seating looking out on the grounds and the ocean. On Friday nights (maybe weekends?) they offer a bottomless seafood platter of oysters on the half shell, shrimp cocktail, snow crab claws, and seviche. Very fresh and generous portions, and bottomless!

                                Not suitable for a quiet evening as the restaurant now caters to families with children. I enjoy dinner in an adult atmosphere and prefer a tablecloth. The steak was very good and prepared correctly. My red wine was warm and even though I asked for it to be chilled I had to request an ice bucket to chill just 1 glass. It would be a good thought for the Ritz to offer a small area with a more upscale setting.

                                Like many restaurants today they continue to struggle with staffing. Our waitress was a bit slow and it appeared based on our interactions a bit new. She did try and I assume she'll improve over time. We were luck enough to get a seat outside on the patio with a beautiful view of the sky and ocean. There were a large number of people outside on the patio but it was very easy to carry on a conversation. The food choices were varied and there was a good selection to choose from. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, it was well cooked and presented. A great choice whether or not you are staying at the Key Biscayne Ritz.

                                Valentine's Day special but they allowed little kids that misbehaved (loudly). Seems they could've sat couples away from families with small kids. Decor was very cafeteria looking for a Ritz property. Bar inside was more like it. Wait staff was great, Manager did buy us a drink to make up for the noise, etc but at $175 per plate you'd just want a more subdued playground or more intimate setup. No vegan options for entrées.

                                Normally a very safe choice for well prepared dishes. This time 3 of 4 fish entrees we not only over cooked but fried vs seared or as described on the menu. Ought to have sent all 3 back but didnt. The appetizers were usual very good as were the sides. Its an expensive night out so I'm hoping this was a blip not a trend.

                                Best to seat outside in the terrace. Go before sunset to enjoy the beach view. The empanadas are some of the best in Miami, get them baked. The fish specials are always good same as the crab cake. Great wine list. The cheese or chocolate cake for dessert.

                                The food and service were good but I would have expected a more upscale restaurant for a Ritz Carlton.

                                Whitney, our server was outstanding. She was present when needed with hoovering and prompt with suggestions and hot food delivery. We were celebrating a special occasion and she made it wonderful for us. Such a blessing for Lightkeepers to have such an outstanding employee!

                                Went last Sunday for Brunch. We were expecting the buffet, but it is not available anymore since Covid. The food was very tasty, although not a lot of menu options. Service was impeccable. $30 bottomless mimosa is always nice. Very nice experience.
