    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.

    The architecture is so beautiful. Kids menu was great for my 3 and 5 year olds. They enjoyed watching the game while eating. The food took a long time to come out but the server was attentive and the food was great. We had the chicken and lamb chops. Would go again.

    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.

    We went for the Rose' garden which was a very small corner of the lobby decorated with flowers . If you're not sitting in the Rose' garden you're eating in the center lobby of a hotel . Food was average at best. Service was slow with an apathetic server.

    I drove in from Cleveland for my birthday. The manager was very professional and empathetic. He made my experience the BEST experience I have ever had. It was very busy but the entire staff handled it very well. The hostess was also very professional and worked very well in the large crowd. The ambiance was exceptional. I would recommend this place for the accountability they had. If there was a mistake they fixed, they didn’t make you feel bad. I also feel it was worth the price due to the large portions. The food was very delicious!!!!! I had a great time and I will return.

    Nothing exceptional. Service was friendly but slow. The ceviche badly needed some acidity. Prawns were excellent. Steak was fine, but over priced for just a regular steak, was also slightly over cooked. So many better options at similar or better price point in center city. If you’re staying at the Ritz and didn’t want to walk more than half a block I guess it’s a solid option. We won’t be going back.

    Our Easter dinner was amazing! Unfortunately the ambience was extremely disappointing. There were multiple children running and screaming and even tackling each other around the dining tables during our meal. Their parents were there and thought this was ok. I wish the staff had tried to curtail this behaviour. The children's activity continually upset a dog that was also sitting nearby in the lobby. So between the dogs continual barking and the children running around, our meal and sense of calm was negatively impacted. The food was fantastic - but the noise and chaos a huge disappointment. I anticipated a more refined atmosphere from the Ritz Carlton.
