I had a Five star Afternoon Tea Experience at Fyve Restaurant and Lounge located at the Exquisite Ritz-Carlton Hotel. I went for the Afternoon Tea package and I really love the portion and the tea selections. The grand jasmin chun Feng green tea is absolutely divine!!! And my favorite from the selection of tea sandwiches is the salmon mousse with caviar. My waiter, Elizabeth was very knowledgeable about the menu and patient. Very Impressive!!!
Great atmosphere that I felt like spending the whole day there. Lol
First time here and I shall definitely return.
I highly RECOMMEND.

A few people walked in without masks. There should be someone even at the hotel entrance or restaurant entrance enforcing masks wearing. Otherwise, love the restaurant and staff is amazing.

So we made reservations but were told to just sit anywhere in the bar area. It appeared that the actual restaurant area was closed off. We were not aware of that when we made the reservation. Food was good but the pork steam buns were listed on the menu but were not available. Service was great.

Good food, great service, pleasant surroundings. Glad to see refined service in the era of COVID-19. One issue is that wine requested from menu was not in stock. Nor was an alternative. But our waiter recommended an able alternative, which was good.

Despite just returning in a limited fashion during the Covid-19 situation, Fyve did a spectacular job of making our dinner experience wonderful. Now temporarily located in the bar/lounge area of the hotel to provide for the best social distancing options, it was still a nice pleasant atmosphere. It just didn't look like a full service restaurant, but again they did their best to overcome this. When we were seated, we were given set-ups and offered still or sparkling water. We were able to remove our masks as soon as we were seated and the wait staff worked with masks and gloves the entire time. We were quite a distance from anyone else in the restaurant and we felt quite safe.

The menu was very limited but that's understandable again due to the current situation. I chose the Shrimp & Grits which were among the best I've ever had, if not THE best. Rather than a creamy sauce, it was more of a brown cajun etouffee style sauce and it was absolutely delicious. My wife had a tagliatelle pasta which came with a bolognese sauce however the waiter offered my wife the option of having an alfredo sauce or having shrimp added. My wife chose the shrimp. Her dish was equally as tasty and well prepared. The shrimp on both dishes were large and plentiful. I would highly recommend both dishes.

We also tried their afternoon tea the next day and it was also terrific. A large selection of teas and a wonderful tray of small canapes, finger sandwiches and sweets. The fresh baked cranberry scones were wonderful and were served with devonshire cream and jam.

All in all, Fyve is trying their best to overcome the difficulties presented by the pandemic, and while they've had to scale down, they still provided excellent food and service. Highly recommended.

I had a 6pm reservation on Valentine's Day and plans to go to the movies at 9pm, which were ruined because it took 2.5 hours for us to receive all of our courses. The food was subpar and overpriced (almost $300)... I was incredibly disappointed because I expected much more from a restaurant inside a Ritz-Carlton.

This is our favorite place to have a nice leisurely afternoon lunch. The food is delicious. The chef even came out to greet us and make sure we were enjoying our meal. I can’t say enough good things about the wonderful staff. We are always treated like royalty. We will continue to return to the Fyve every chance we get.

Excellent food, the dishes were well presented and the taste was excellent. Unfortunately the service fell well below expectations. Food took an incredibly long time to come out, and our server was polite but notably absent for long periods of time. Would have been excellent if not for the inconsistent service.

We had an amazing time. We got to the restaurant earlier than expected and were seated almost immediately. The host and server staff all knew it was our anniversary and extended congratulations the whole evening. The staff really went above and beyond by making us feel like VIP. I can’t thank them enough. We had a very memorable experience with amazingly rich and delectable dishes, champagne to cheers our occasion, and a specialized dessert that ending our night perfectly. Their final touch of the staff signing a beautiful card for us as a keepsake was truly touching. Will be visiting this location again.

We noted we were celebrating our wedding anniversary in our reservation, and the server didn’t even acknowledge it. Waiters seemed not to be assigned to tables. We had multiple servers throughout the night, and there seemed to be a lot of general confusion. The table next to us sat for a good half hour without being able to place their dinner order.

The kitchen was using good ingredients, and the bartender was friendly - but there were people making speakerphone video calls at the bar - and the general after work crowd was taking advantage of deeply discounted specials that doesn't jive with 100 dollars for dinner. I woudn't go back, there are so many better places that are easy to get to even if you're a guest.

Service is inconsistent for a Sunday morning brunch at the price of $55/plate. The food is ok and there are plenty of selections. If you are considering this brunch vs the brunch at the Four Seasons (2800 Pennsylvania Avenue NW), go with the Four Seasons. You will not be disappointed.

Interesting and clean style. Modern. Bit distracting being open to the lobby and the music was not conducive to a peaceful tea time. Food was good. Service was better. Tea was well prepared if a bit limited in choice.
