used to be one of the best brunches in St. Louis, very disappointing now. Very simple selection, service is poor, some of the staff needs a lot of training. Couple ladies who worked there for many years are the only positive value left to this sad place. Wont go back for brunch to this place again, after so many chances to see if any improvement was made, but it is only more disappointing every time we try.

Not worth the price. The crab cakes and sushi were the best part. Nothing else special

Elegant Christmas buffet! I was looking for a special place for Christmas dinner. We were visiting from out of town with a relative who is unable to cook. The Ritz delivered. This is apparently an on-going tradition but I was not aware of it. The staff was wonderful, so friendly and attentive! The food was varied and extravagant, just what's called for on a special day. It's pricey but worth it.

Came for th brunch for Christmas. There was no brunch available as hotel occupancy was low. Orders from the menu. We had 6 people and 5 were unhappy with their food. Everything was very overlooked. Our waitress was nice but didn't come back to refill drinks. We got our own Coffee pot after waiting several minutes. Our breakfast was $30 ea and certainly not worth it.

I always like meeting client at the Ritz for lunch. It's easy to get seated. It's quiet. The service is terrific and personable. The food is good and competitively-priced.

Brunch was pretty good although pretty limited compared to past visits. The good news is that the price has dropped to just $25 per person, the bad news is that the scope and grandeur of the brunch buffet has been majorly cut back. Bear in kind we went on a Sunday, when you might expect the brunch to be more special than a weekday.
Now, it is closer to a Ritz version of other hotels' breakfast buffets. You still get omelettes as well as fresh waffles but the sushi, smoked fish, lunch entrees, and desserts are all gone. In their place/remaining are the standard bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, pancakes, as well as pre-made eggs benedicts (pretty tasty). Was worth the $25 but we would've happily paid up to double that for the grand ritz brunch experience of prior years. Also, service was acceptable but clearly a step down from the past as well. I'd describe it as somewhat slow (coffee and mimosas took a while) and definitely less polished than expected. Host up front was very classy, however, with greeting us. Gentleman cooking omelettes did a good job cooking but seemed a bit stressed despite a light crowd. Frankly, we got a bit of an impression that we were putting him out by politely standing near his station while checking it out and considering our order and whether to place it at that time. We hadn't even said anything to him yet when he told us he'd be with us in a minute, as if the possibility that we might order then, as he finished his prior guests omelettes would be inappropriate. When we did order we felt compelled to inquire whether it was an "ok" time. He warmed up and was fine at that point. All in all I found myself wondering if they had a separate, nicer brunch in another restaurant at the Ritz. Perhaps there isn't a market for fancy Sunday brunch these days. I went from being awed in two prior visits to mildly underwhelmed. Mimosas were very good, however they were $14, a price more in line with their original brunch but less fitting to this version

Kids were too loud and nobody seemed to care.

We enjoyed our lunch for our son's graduation from college. Great lunch choices, wonderful and welcoming staff, tasty food and a feeling of luxury in the room. Very nice experience.
