    We had a lovely lunch with a nice glass of wine. We sat outside with the pool off in the distance, but not loud at all. Many places to sit and have a nice view if you can't get outside dining at the restaurant area; the bar area inside is lovely to eat at, and the outdoor bar area also looked like. Nice option to dine at

    As stated in an earlier review, when you are eating towards the end of the day for the buffet, some of the food items are dried out and not as tasty as earlier in the day. For the money, the food was not worth it. However, the service was excellent.

    It was a nice buffet, but $150 per person just strikes me as steep. When I made the reservation I mistakenly thought the cost was $85 per person. Knowing what I know now, I would not have booked the reservation.

    Don't waste your money on average food, in a large plain banquet room, no service except when first sat down and waiter?? explained where various food locations were, all spread over a very large area. Never told us of complimentary champagne which was terrible in retrospect. Carver could barely cut Prime Rib and I needed steak knife to cut at all with also being almost cold. Some salads were very good but that is all I could give any recommendation for, like eating at a Red Robin or something like that. Extremely expensive even though knew would be very pricey and had no complaints if there would have been any service or a wonderful dining experience. Men that were supposed to be waiters extremely lacking in any service whatsoever. All food AVERAGE at best. NOOO!!! Experience interesting!!!!!!!

    Xmas brunch buffet was definitely not what I expected. Sparsely laid out in a giant ballroom (totally devoid of the views from the Ritz I expected), food stations were very spread out. Felt like a sad banquet. Food was ok and service was fine, but way overpriced.

    Overall the experience was palatable but many of the selections were dry. The seafood table was spectacular as was their prime rib carving. The service was very good but for the money it wasn’t worth attending. We felt taken advantage of. Celebration for Christmas came to 450.00 $$ for 2. I’d rather have gone to Golden Correl with a bus of homeless for that.

    Sadly, the value was not there. We we were told to dine at the Ritz for the view and ambience but the buffet was served in a ballroom so no view and terrace was too cold. The buffet was set up beautifully, but alas the food not so good. The salad greens were wilted and even when staff refreshed them the new stock was just The main prime rib was dried out and not rare and the ham was nothing-just a cooked ham-no cloves, brown sugar just a cooked ham. What was good: squash bisque, seafood bar, lox and salad accompaniments. Desserts were less than average. The staff is excellent, only wish the food was as good.

    The teddy bear tea was a fun experience for us traveling over the Christmas holiday. Service was impeccable, food was awesome, stunning view and a huge teddy bear! Hope it becomes an annual event!

    Thanksgiving Buffet Dinner. A big disappointment. Much of the food was poor quality, overcooked, too salty or a combination of these. With a 4 p.m. seating several items were no longer available or in short supply (no freshly prepared pasta station, dark turkey meat). Some items were inedible such as rolls and fish. Live music ended early. Finally the desert station was a joke. Plain chocolates, Rolos!, eclairs! Where were the holiday pies? The bill for two people with no alcohol was over $400! I will not repeat.
