Had the restaurant three times during our stay at the Ritz Carlton. The buttermilk pancakes is what my son and I had each time we went there and we loved them. The service was pretty good but could have been a little better.

Very attentive staff and very good food. Spacious area and high ceilings provide some degree of privacy and reduces the level of noise. Tip: there is a door to the courtyard and it is frequently used by guests who wish to smoke, which means the smell gets inside as the door is opened; so avoid being seated at a table... More

Breakfast is not bad: buffet or a la carte. Dinner they want to be too innovative. Tries the rib eye - small portion, mixed condiments, diverse vegetables. I was so hungry that I had to order an additional dish!!! Why?

While it's not the liveliest place, the quality of the food is superb. Had several dinners and breakfasts here and all were excellent. The dinner menu has refined dishes and an interesting wine list; the buffet breakfast has a great selection of hot and cold dishes. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed.

The atmosphere is a modern country with wood everywhere. The service was impeccable from start to finish. We were there for breakfast and all ordered from the buffet which was more than adequate. Eggs Benedict were excellent as well as the potatoes, bacon and charcuterie... would recommend.

As with most hotels, the prices are a little high on breakfast but if you do the buffet you'll get your money's worth. The food is excellent and varied and the staff is very nice and helpful.

Parallel 37 at Ritz-Carlton is how breakfast restaurants should be. Service there is outstanding. They will make sure your breakfast is just what you expected and even more (i.e. complimentary coffee to-go).

Had my birthday dinner mid-week at Parallel 37. The summer tasting menu was excellent and the service was just right.

Since we were staying at the Ritz-Carlton we decided to have breakfast at Parallel 37. Menu was fantastic. We opted for the buffet and it was unlike any breakfast buffet we had before. Service was outstanding.
