    The ambiance was perfect. The food was delicious. *chef’s kiss* The live jazz band was great. It was an overall beautiful experience. The only notes I have are that our server was less than mediocre. The restaurant wasn’t busy at all. She was more interested in talking in the back than helping us. Also, the bathroom wasn’t clean. I expected more from The Ritz. RaceTrac bathrooms are cleaner.

    We went here for a special birthday. I wanted to listen to the band and have a great dinner. 4/5 of us loved our meals. One didn’t like that the the shrimp arrived with heads and tails still on. I had a great duck breast—one of the top 2 I’ve ever had. They even had one plant-based entree (not a salad) for the vegan in our group. I came for the band, and they were great, but maybe a little sleepier than I remember from the past. But it was nice music for dinner. The only reason I give it 4 stars rather than 5 is the service. We waited a while to be greeted at the door although I had a reservation and the place was not crowded. We waited a while for drink orders and food orders, for the food, and had to ask for the check and wave the servers down to take the check. So there is definite room for improvement on the service side, but the food and music were excellent. The only downside—and there’s nothing the restaurant can do about this—but since it’s the back part of the Hotel lounge, there were many loud FSU fans in the lounge who were in town for the game and apparently lots of loud drinking in what is normally a classy upscale lounge. It’s really not a downside, just be aware that the restaurant is inside the lounge. You get the benefit of listening to Jeremy Davenport with the trade off of whatever big group happens to be in town and at the Ritz’ bar.

    My friend & I ate brunch here before going to see Hamilton. The hostess was very nice & helpful, & even let us pick where we wanted to sit. Service was mostly timely, as it was a bit busy. The food was very good. I had a cocktail that was perfect too. I will go here again before seeing a show at the Saenger. The ambiance was very nice as well. Loved the valet service with validation for eating brunch here too.

    We did not receive the level of service we expected. The waiter wasn't attentive, the appetizer was hard and we didn't even get asked if we wanted a replacement. We waited almost an hour for our entree which was only two salads.

    The entrees were perfect; the filet with crabmeat was cooked to perfection, and the artichoke encrusted red fish was amazing. The tuna appetizer and Street Corn Bisque were very tasty - and different from anything I've had before. Dessert was an experience in and of itself. My wife had the doberge cake - great! And I had the "seasonal" bread pudding - that night it was chocolate chip; it ranks as one of the best bread puddings I've ever had.

    Unfortunately we ordered two different bottles from the wine list only to be told they didn’t have them in stock and we’e offered substitutes at the same price that were not equivalent. Medium rare steak was delivered well done. They did compensate us with free dessert, which was nice, but unfortunately the food was substandard for New Orleans which was unexpected for a restaurant inside a Ritz Carlton.

    The food was good, but an abundance of caramel on the chocolate chip bread pudding and a lot of sauce on the salmon — I suppose it was some kind of curry sauce.

    The big selling point of M Bistro is getting to listen to Davenport and his band while dining. We really enjoyed that part of the evening. The food was excellent; we had duck, gumbo, and salad. Delicious. Service was very challenging. Two servers for the entire floor. I had to chase down our server twice for things we needed. Food came out in odd orders with large gaps in between. There seemed to be plenty of bus-people, but not enough servers for such an expensive restaurant. We still tipped well. The ambiance makes the place - jazz, great food, and a vibe that evokes the rumba, cha cha cha era. We definitely would recommend. They just need more of the right level of staffing.

    Very nice decor. Drinks very good in the bar w/ piano music. Jazz combo at 7 for our dinner in dining room adjoining bar. Great salad, great grouper, ok scallops. Super service & wine recommendation. a bit pricey but a beautiful room w/ stellar service from the Ritz Carlton as one might expect. Good for a group.

    Nada great menu for fish. Being in New Orleans we expected a larger selection of a fish. We’re in Orange Beach seven months a year and I’ve never had a grouper with that kind of a spicy flavor to it. I wish someone would’ve warned us. We would’ve had them leave most of the spices off, but the vegetables were good with it. The grouper was very well cooked and tasty. The band was great until they quit for the evening. We were hoping that we could pick up some jazz if we went to dinner at the Ritz. All in all it was a four.
