    Great service! easy clean nice location. For the bottomless, $70 PER PERSON got you assorted pastries and fruit parfait, TERRIBLE second course toasts.. the toppings were horrid and a big waste for our table. Third course (chosen main meal) was decent but not even that much food. The churros which we were most excited for did not live up to expectations. Tried the kir royal but wasn’t impressed. So switched over to classic mimosas. They were fine. Nothing super crazy. Didn’t see any outdoor area seating. Literally just in the lobby of ritz carlton. Do not think I would return.

    I enjoy coming here a majority of the time. There were only a few times that service wasnt good or at the standard one would expect to go to that establishment. I enjoyed my brunch there this past time but I miss the unlimited brunch food with the unlimited bubbles. I think that is something that has to return.

    They seemed not to expect us. Very confused. Said they had a new menu starting that night and it did not have GF items we expected. Kept us standing at the entrance while they discussed what to do. After about 15 minutes the only bright spot, a lovely server seated us and set up a table. After studying the new menu, we thanked her and left.

    The food was outstanding. My only criticism is that the server did not tell us how large the sorbet portions are. I ordered two scoops and ended up with more than anyone should eat in one sitting.

    For starters, we highly recommend the cheesesteak empanadas and the kale caesar salad. Main entree was the Tomahawk steak which was the highlight of the dinner. The chef rolled this in and torched it right in front of us which was an incredible and memorable dining experience. We also had grilled camarones. Roasted avocado and crab mashed potatoes perfectly complimented the steak and shrimps. A birthday dessert churros treat was served with lighted candles to top it all.

    Great spot to have a classy brunch with your affluent friends...or at least look like it. The service was ok, a little bit of a work in progress. The drinks were refreshing and the food was delish. I'd go back with my baller friends.

    Reservation was at 7 but we got there at 6:45p. Placed our order by 7 and waited over an hour for our food. When our food was presented, it was cold. Horrible experience. We were pressured to send it back by the wait staff and we did so. Waited another 15-20 mins and finally received our 2nd entrees. For a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton, you’d expect better service for the price. My first try at Aqimero will be my last.

    This was a really BAD experience! First there was no host to greet us. After waiting 10 minutes for a host to come, they sat someone who came in after my guest and myself. After being seated we had to wait 35 minutes before our first course came out. When we got the third course my order was wrong twice. I ordered a medium burger with a fried egg. When it came out it had no egg so it was sent back and when it came back the burger was well done, so I did not have a 3 course. The servers was really absent and didn’t give up the service expected when walking in the Ritz Carlton! I will never go back out recommend this place to anyone.

    Ceviche was just ok; lacked citrus flavor. Chips were delicious. Lamb was delicious. Kale Caesar was very good. Steak was way over cooked. Everything was over priced. Scallops were too salty. Won’t return.

    Our server at the table was rude, clumsy and highlighted a stark contrast with what one expects from a restaurant under the roof of the Ritz Carlton. She was troubled by our dietary restrictions, almost suggesting that this was not the place for us to dine. She eventually decided to ignore our table and closed our tab (throwing it over to the center of our table) without any after-dinner selections. Frankly, she single- handedly ended our dinner, sounding overwhelmed by the requirements of our choices and dietary preferences as if we were sitting down for fast food and a restricted multiple choice selection. Her knowledge of the possibilities of the culinary backdrop presented in the Aqimero marketing narrative was scarce and narrow-minded. In our experience, this not only a sign of individual limitations but also of proper training and an overall lack of quality assurance in the service delivery aspects that are critically immediate to the customer at the table.

    I attended the Endless Bubbles Brunch this past Sunday afternoon with two girlfriends. We had a blast. It is a four course brunch that includes endless, top-shelf mimosas of various flavors. The food was spectacular. Our server was phenomenal. The manager did rounds, and personally came to our table to greet us and to ensure our reservation was going smoothly. And did I mention how beautiful the Ritz Carlton is? It has a beautiful ambiance… great for social media content. We loved it! We will definitely be going back for another brunch very soon! 10 out of 10.

    I really wanted to leave a better review, but my wife and I both found the assorted toast course of the endless bubbles brunch to be overly salty, and the bubbles used for our drinks to be mediocre. For a restaurant the sits within such an iconic building in downtown Philly, we really were expecting a close-to-flawless experience and sadly, had one that fell quite short. The wait staff was very attentive and cordial, though.

    This was my first time Aqimero and my friends and I were super excited for Brunch celebrating our birthday, until we were rudely greeted my Angela. We waited at the host stand and She completely ignored us and immediately greeted and sat a group of women that walked in 10 mins after us. I guess we didn’t favored her image of liking. Yup in 2022 we’re still trying to make people feel not welcomed. Angela then said “she didn’t see me” in my bright neon orange summer dress. Lol She didn’t walk us to our table . Thank goodness our server made up for Angela lack of customer service and rude hospitality.
