We had been to Alinea and Charlie Trotter's, which both had world class reputations and were disappointed with both. Ria was next on the list and deserves every Michelin star it earns. The service was extraordinary. We felt we made friends with everyone who helped...More

My wife and I went to Ria recently and were impressed with both the service and the cuisine. Progressive French at its best. The service was very professional and genuinely attentive without being obtrusive. We have dined in many Michelin star restaurants in London and...More

Exceptional food and service quality. Very traditional restaurant in the French haute cuisine sense. Loved my meal there. Pricing puts it in 3 Michelin star territory though. $100 less and it would be a destination.

Hmm. Where do I start? I think 'America' and 'fine dining' just don't somehow work. Maybe Chicago is too used to eating hot dogs. Maybe some of these guys need to get out more often. Overseas would be good. Started off the enthusiastic hard sell...More

We were staying at the Waldorf for a few nights, and decided to try Ria as a special treat. We enjoy eating at nice restaurants, but it was our first time at a Michelin star restaurant. It was quite an experience. We went for the...More
