Could not fault the service, food and ambiance, as always!

Had the Peking duck and much dim sum!

Service top notched and they never allow your tea cup to be left empty.

Perfect way to enjoy a dim sum lunch on a weekday!

Considered to be a top Cantonese restaurant, Summer Pavilion leaves you with a cold, wintry feeling. They were out of Peking duck, the tea flavored duck, the Iberian pork and even the crispy chicken. This was at 8 pm. Out of everything good on the menu. Why have a seating at 8 pm or even pretend to have a diverse menu if you can’t get basic capacity planning right. We moved to fish - well, they were out of the grouper, the mainstay of their fish section. What a letdown. On a Thursday night too. Be careful about going to this restaurant - make sure you just haven’t booked a table; book what you want to eat or you will be left with the crumbs.

Ate here twice on a recent visit and loved it. You can tell pride and love goes into preparation of your food and the service is always perfect.

Colony (next door at the Ritz) has a stunning atmosphere, but it doesn't carry over to this stuffy, badly laid out, incredibly cold (temp and feel) restaurant.

Do not eat here as a single person. GIANT portions and no way to downsize.

There are 4 menus, none of which make sense. When I asked for an explanation of the crispy chicken, I was told it was crispy chicken on a plate. No veggies, I asked? No. No rice? Nope. Just chicken on a plate.

Confused, I asked a 100 more questions and quickly (?) realized that there was no way I was getting the authentic Chinese experience I wanted.

Food was average at best. Service was deplorable.

With so many good options in the city, don't waste your time here.

The restaurant is a bit dark and gloomy and somehow lacks atmosphere. Our food took a while to arrive but when it did it was very good. The service provided by Pong Sook Xian and her team was friendly and very professional. This is an expensive restaurant (it is part of the Ritz Carlton hotel) so you will need to choose carefully if you are on a budget.
