The restaurant and bar have been redesigned and nothing of the old Ritz feeling remains. The bar is loud, very bright lighting, and few chairs to sit around with friends. The restaurant now reminds me of a school cafeteria and the menu is sparse in content and looks like a typical Holiday Inn dining room choices. In fact, Holiday Inn might be better.

Hope the new Whitly management team likes the new concept. I think most folks that liked the Ritz will run to the St Regis or the Four Seasons.

Eh. Staff friendly, but small menu —- and if you’ve got Just a few entrees, do them right. I think they’re just biding time here for a bigger name restaurant to move in.

Bring back the old Chef and menu. Shame on this property for changing the bar and restaurant for the worse. I don’t know what the management company was thinking. They should not have eliminated the Sunday brunch and afternoon tea. Stupid decision.

Also the menu on open table does not match the restaurant. I told this to the management last month and they said they will fix it. It has been a month and there has been no change. Sham on you. It has been a month! No excuses just poor management.

The service however from our waitress was exceptional too bad the menu and food wasn’t good and we will NOT be coming back.

The Cafe at the Ritz Buckhead has changed tremendously. The rich oak classic decor has be changed to a harsh minimalist look. There is no longer the famous Sunday lunch buffet, but a rather ordinary a la carte menu which is very overpriced. I looked at it an walked out. Apparently the hotel is going to receive further renovation and become the Whitley Hotel. It is a sad time for both patrons and wonderful employees alike to see this amazing classic die. Shame on you!

The only reason I marked lower on ambiance is that there were 3 tables of really loud people who all knew each other and were shouting back and forth.
The food was excellent and we had asked our server to go slowly between the courses and he did. Taste and presentation of the food was excellent. It was expensive for what we ate. But then the next morning breakfast buffet was $75, way overpriced for those who don't eat a lot.

Our server Amanda was awesome. I wish I could say the same for the food. I had a pasta dish that was very dense and needed something to cut the texture. My wife just had a salad and baked potato. The baked potato was old and had been microwaved to heat it. The menu is very limited and does not offer a very good range of choices. I expected more from a Ritz Carlton.
