    First visit to The Ritz Cafe. The food was excellent and our waitress (Danielle?) was wonderful. It is nice to be served with a smile and knowledge of the menu. The prices were affordable and the servings generous. My husband left his credit card at the restaurant and did not realize that it was missing until three days later. I called first thing in the morning and learned that the restaurant was holding onto the card. As we travelled to the restaurant by boat from another state we could not easily stop by to retrieve it. The man/possibly owner that I spoke with promised to mail it to us that very same day and he did. He even sent a photo of the addressed mailing envelope. We plan on dining at The Ritz Cafe in our future visits to Northport.

    Good location by the water. Waitress seemed to be having a bad day. Ordered shrimp salad with pears. Pears were hard. Shrimp was delicious but only 3

    Nice spot. Basically bar food and kept simple. Like everyone else they are short staffed but our waitresses did a good job. Northport was crowded as usual. A few more upscale restaurants would be nice.

    Friendly staff greeted us and promptly sat us. We chose from the main menu and was not disappointed. Salmon was cooked perfectly and piping hot. Linguine with clams terrific with a nice amount of clams too! Started with delicious French onion soup (which could have been hotter) but very tasty! Will go again! Perfect little dinner for before a play in Town!

    This my favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is always amazing. My favorite is the Greek salad with grilled salmon. The drinks are fantastic as well. Friendly atmosphere with a wonderful staff. I highly recommend it.

    Nice little bistro, busy on a Sunday night. Enjoyed our food. A bit noisy, but that is because a family with noIsy kids was next to us. Veal franchise was delicious as was the enormous pecan crusted Brie in the salad.

    The meatloaf reminded me of a frozen dinner and tons of gravy. It was not good compared to Riley’s . Both dishes had too much salt for our taste. I’m not sure if the waitress was having a good night ?

    We always go to the Ritz, and know the food and service will be great. It was busy (as it was Family Night in the village) but our waitress Robin was attentive, friendly, and handled the high level of stress on a busy night, with grace and a great sense of humor. Our drinks took a while, as the bartender was in the midst of a conversation with her customers, but when we got them, they were worth the wait. We shared the tuna tartare app, and it was delicious!! Also, had the rice balls which were just as good! One of us got the avocado stuffed with shrimp salad, and absolutely loved it. I had the spinach salad, which I always get. It was good, and filling as always. We'll be back....again, and again!

    As always a wonderful, relaxed night had by all at The Ritz Cafe. We dined outside and could hear the Northport music from the summer show in the park. Food was delicious and not rushed at all even though the restaurant was quite busy. Service as always on point. All servers are delightful and we were lucky enough to have Robin who is exceptional and so much fun. It is and will always be our go to restaurant in northport. Thanks for a great night!

    6/15/22-went for lunch with my daughter & a friend. Weather was beautiful so we sat outside. What was really nice they had big umbrellas to block the sun. I’d recommend the chicken fajitas with shrimp, delicious! Portion size was great for lunch, even had leftovers..

    Change the prices on the menu. The Blackened Swordfish was a special at $39.00 not the teriyaki that I asked for that was $35.00 on the menu. Then they tried to tell me they were the same thing. Should have come over to talk to me, mr owner, instead of hiding behind the waitress!

    This is my second time at the Ritz Cafe. I love that it's off the main street in Northport but on the quieter side with the same view of the harbor. The bar tender Alyssa was super nice and knowledgable about the menu. The vibe was great. Food really great as well. Would definitely recommend.

    My entree was fine and met my expectations - salad with grilled chicken. The grilled chicken was very good and there was a lot of spinach. How ever, I would suggest not serving frozen chicken tenders as an appetizer, especially when the price could lead one to think that they were going to be homemade. Also, I’m not sure if it was just a bad day, but the waitress seemed upset or unable to smile the entire time.

    Short visit from out-of-towners. I was struck by a really good feel to the place. Staff was attentive and helpful. We ordered sandwiches and a salad, so can't fully evaluate the food, but I can say that they make an excellent hamburger. Nice place!
