    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!

    This is bar and not a restaurant. Should’ve walked out before sitting down, so dining was my own mistake. The place was packed with drunk people and was very loud. One pasta dish was under cooked and the other was over cooked and water logged. Very disappointing meal. The server was nice and did what she could to be professional. Wouldn’t return.

    I had a reservation for 6:45 and walked in the door at 6:40 and advised the waitress that I had a reservation for 6:45pm and she said ok. She came back a minute later and said that we were going to have the table at the end which she pointed to and said that they would be leaving shortly because she was getting the check but they were still eating I told her. She said it won’t be long. They continued to eat and then after 30 minutes they were served dessert. My wife spoke to the waitress from the Ritz and said we had a reservation and you said they were leaving and it has been 30 minutes and they are not leaving anytime soon. She said sorry without any remorse it was just words. When you have a reservation you should honor it and not try to squeeze another table for the night. It was my birthday that day and put it in open table and I will never set foot in the Ritz ever again. By the way go to the Main st cafe when in Northport it was delicious and the staff were courteous and friendly that same night.

    I had a great experience at Ritz cafe. Our waitress was really sweet. The food was delicious. I gave the food only 4 stars because one of my appetizers was too salty but other than that everything was absolutely delicious
