As far as afternoon tea goes, all the elements were there. The food was great and the tea was a nice blend. It was very noisy because of construction and we were sat in a ballroom which was disappointing as far as atmosphere. I have had happy hour here several times and the service was always spot on but not up to par this time. Had to ask for water, the tea was strained before it came to the table, and it took a very long time for the server to ask if the food had things I was allergic to (which I had discussed before when I made my reservation). Just not what I’m used to when I’m dining at the Ritz Carlton.
FYVE is currently under renovation, which was not mentioned on its website. I arrived at the hotel expecting a nice dinner venue because it is, after all, The Ritz-Carlton. Instead, the restaurant was set up in a ballroom, with a bar in the corner (at which you couldn't sit at, like a bar that would be set up in the back of a ballroom at a wedding), and tables spaced out throughout the room. I felt like I was entering a work conference, not a restaurant. It was a very odd experience. Had I known this, I would not have booked my dinner reservation at this restaurant. Part of paying the price for the food and wine is the atmosphere, and the ballroom was unimpressive and overall just an odd dining experience. I was embarrassed when my guest arrived for dinner because we both were expecting a nice restaurant, not a ballroom with tables scattered about.
Appetizer bread was very tough. Menu not same as what’s posted online and it’s more restricted. Entrees were good.
The food was fantastic! The service was top tier! The drinks with Robert The Mixologist...words can not describe how good they were. All around my favorite spot.
I wanted this to be so much better than it was. The French onion soup was very greasy, though tasty. The wedge salad was just strange. I don't know what made it taste so sweet, but it was too much so. The staff seemed preoccupied despite only a few customers in a the restaurant. If this were in a Marriott Courtyard lounge, perhaps I would have given better scores, but for a Ritz Carlton, it just wasn't very good.
great food. somewhat limited selection. wonderful service
Excellent service and food!
Very nice afternoon Tea. Vey intimate setting for a celebration. The wait staff were excellent.
The high tea is absolutely fabulous! Danielle made my birthday super special and Goran and Dino took great care of us. Definitely coming back!
Elisabeth was the best waitress ever. So kind and thoughtful and considerate. The kids crying and dim lighting was not it. I think their should be better lighting, better photo ops, and another section for the 5 year olds. The food was ok, wish their was more. Also wish you could purchase more champagne. The $70 was steep for 8 mini snacks and weak tea
The experience was absolutely amazing!! Elizabeth is the best
The Afternoon tea was a lovely experience.
High Tea at the Ritz-Carleton! Exquisite and elegant; 18th floor views of Arlington and DC in the distance. Impeccable service. Great décor. Incredible edibles with a great selection of tea. A fantastic experience you must try.
The service frankly made the experience wonderful. They were warm, friendly, and accommodating and made us feel welcome and comfortable!
Would use service again and recommend to friends. Great afternoon tea service. Quiet atmosphere where attentive staff ensured you have what you need but give you space/time to catch up with friends.
We attended an afternoon tea, my elderly friend was very excited and had a wonderful time. Truly an afternoon delight.
Afternoon Tea - had a great experience.
Food was good. They had a nut-free plate for friend with allergies. They offered more food, which is common in London, but not guaranteed in the States.
Presentation was lovely. No bartender on duty at the time but they made martinis for us.
Small nitpick - the room is a little basic with no view.
Mom enjoyed wonderful views and fabulous service at the afternoon tea service for Mother's Day
The staff was great and the food tasted good but we were hoping for a fancier dining experience. The restaurant was a kind of lounge and a few groups of diners were quite noisy. The prices were a little high—something to consider.
We do Tea at various places. This one is very nice. Room was pleasant, noise level low, service was prompt and polite. A nice selection of tidbits to enjoy while chatting. We stayed from 2 to 5 and they let us chat without bother . I do have to say the chairs were awkward, too deep seated and too heavy to move. We ended up perched on the end of the chair to do the tea.
Amazing lunch!! The Cherry Blossom High Tea at the Ritz was extraordinary. Both my husband & I loved every single bite. The delicious artistry in each item was beyond compare. Cannot recommend more highly!
Elizabeth provided exceptional customer service! Beautiful views and delicious tea sandwiches.
The Cherry Blossom Tea was great! You check in downstairs at the restaurant and they give you an envelope with your name and a key card to use for the elevator. For the Cherry Blossom Tea you're served in the club room on the 18th floor - great view! It's decorated with faux cherry blossoms with a display of the different teas on the menu. Because of COVID, the tables are far apart. Very nice and quiet, very pretty room, great view (well it overlooks the parking garage for the Pentagon City mall but look past that). Service was really good. You get a your choice of a mimosa or bellini and choose your tea. There were quite a few savory sandwiches. The goat cheese tart was really good. The cherry scone was VERY good served with cherry jam and clotted cream. Also liked the yuzu pana cotta. They even gave us extra sandwiches! Pretty sweets. We'd like to go back again for tea. We were told they do a special Christmas tea and regular tea on Saturdays and Sundays but not on the 18th floor. Would highly recommend.
Amazing experience. Every little food item looked so good and tasted awesome. Good variety of teas and the one I got was really good. Loved the Cherry Blossom afternoon tea experience.
Very under-whelmed. I think it was the whole experience at this Ritz. Fyve seemed more like a lounge than an upscale Ritz restaurant. Food was OK but nothing special. Plenty of other options in the area that serve better food at a better price in a better atmosphere.
Excellent service, good quality food for the price, and plenty of space in an upscale space.
Great choices, fresh, nice tea choices, great service
This restaurant was perfect for Afternoon Tea with my young daughters. The tea was held on the 18th floor club level. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Highly recommend.
Easter Brunch with my two teen children. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table by friendly faces. The wait staff was very attentive, fast and kind. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The carving station was clean and made sure that we got as much as we wanted. All the side dishes were presented hot and each with a savory but distinctive flavors between them. The desserts were beautiful and very well done. The small details were prefect and everything tasted delicious. We all devoured our food and left full and happy. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience. This mom is very happy she didn’t have to cook for Easter.
We came from Orlando to celebrate our Anniversary and the Cherry Blossom Tea experience was fantastic. We were treated like royals. Good food, good service, and great views!
Absolutely wonderful experience-definitely recommend!
It was a Birthday Tea, we went for the Cherry Blossom Tea Event late March
Server and food were absolutely wonderful
Wonderful staff and service! Tea with a view. Everything was delicious! Such a great experience!
The food was just delicious and the service was beyond spectacular. I will definitely go back for afternoon tea again. It was a delightful experience overall!
Everything was as expected - excellent food and service!
It is so nice to find a high quality restaurant where all the diners respect low tone table talk and restrict their cell phone use to the corridor. Very refreshing.
They set up a special room for my wife and I , with music and a fireplace. It was magnificent.
This was an extraordinary experience for our grandchild. We all enjoyed the Ritz-Carlton service experience. The food and drink was above average, the room superb and the ambiance was excellent.
First time eating here since pandemic.
Staff very conscientious about keeping us safe. Food was great as was the service.
Look forward to returning for afternoon tea when we return to ‘normal.’
I had to get a waiters attention just to be served they kept walking past me without acknowledging my existence then when someone finally came to me they told me I was running out of time to be in the restaurant
