I expected a lot more for a restaurant at the Ritz. My husband and I had dinner here on New Years Eve. The restaurant was not overly crowded. The best part of the meal were the olives and bread they give every table. We both ordered the filet. Everything came out cold!! The side of vegetables were horrible as they were in a red sauce. The truffle mashed potatoes were not even edible due to be cold and beyond dry. Our filet’s were over done and also cold. They were actually burnt on the top. The only good thing about this place is the staff. The servers and bus boys were amazing and attentive. The drinks were also great. Clearly the problem lies in the kitchen. It is beyond expensive. Normally we don’t care what we spend when we have great food, but I have never been more disappointed. I am not one to ever complain because I know it has nothing to do with the server, and I’m not that high maintenance. I felt compelled to leave a bad review because people should know this restaurant is really bad, and over priced.

I was disappointed with the service. The food was just ok. The drinks were good. Value not worth it for me after all. We sat on a table by the glass wall. The server saw us, came and talk to the table next to us and left. That was it, he never came back, we were never acknowledged. After 10 minutes we walk by the bar and had drinks and a snack. The same server was standing there my friend asked for the bathroom and the server ignored him. Simple as that his name was Camilo. I couldn't believe his nerve to pretend he never saw us and he didn't heard my friend. The bar tender was ok, again we were disappointed. We had a room in the hotel but we had the rest of our meals outside this hotel and restaurant.

It was fantastic! We had the fillet and it came with delicious truffle butter. Absolutely recommend for a special event or when you’re feeling on dropping some serious cash. The only thing that I was surprised about was that there wasn’t really a view since it is on one of the higher levels of the building. They also gave us a complementary chocolate cake!

Torali was a big disappointment. I love Osso Bucco , which I love, but is rarely on menus. I ordered it, and it was OK, but not great. My nephew had a steak and it was the same thing. Good but not great. My wife had steak tartare and it was inedible. The waiter was fabulous.

They were closed except a limited buffet due to strike and still taking reservations per open table and even sent text reminders . Wasted trip there and messed up our evening. Why didn’t they just say so?

Well, we went on a Friday night as I had read about the new outside space and we all were very excited to try! But, it was way too windy and cold even though it was probably 70 degrees outside on the ground level. The view is nonexistent unless you want to look at buildings and a peek of the lake. Barely anyone outside also. No music playing. Pretty dead. We then went inside and sat in low set chairs not next to the bar but nearby and our server was none too pleased from the start. Clearly unhappy to be working or unhappy with us from the start? I was very surprised that this was the level of service from their staff. Other waitstaff members seemed helpful - possibly it was an off night for ours. Drinks were mixed very well and food was very good but traditional. Again, clearly good they updated the hotel but its still boring and for a much much older crowd. Unfortunately, we are not going back when there are so many other places in the city with outdoor space and friendly staff for the price we paid.
