We dined here as a family three times over the last couple of years. This is the hotel restaurant for the Ritz Carlton San Francisco. It is a nice enough place. Food is below the standard it should be. At best average. Service is average. Not recommended. Eat on Club level it's better. We now walk up the hill for... More

This hotel restaurant is simply fantastic. Amazing breakfast buffet, everything is splendid and superbly made. The ingredients are divine. The fruits are rich, the oranges are perfect. Everything here is fresh and well prepared.

After a couple of salad meals in the lounge, we were looking forward to Parallel 37. We have dined in great restaurants all over the world and sadly felt let down by this one. Firstly, we were sat at the same timber tables we had been taking our breakfasts. I would have thought table cloths for a restaurant of this... More

Went down for cocktails and a snack to hide from the unruly children on the club level. Staff is great, with a very good wine and beer selection. Food was very good.

Had the restaurant three times during our stay at the Ritz Carlton. The buttermilk pancakes is what my son and I had each time we went there and we loved them. The service was pretty good but could have been a little better.

Very attentive staff and very good food. Spacious area and high ceilings provide some degree of privacy and reduces the level of noise. Tip: there is a door to the courtyard and it is frequently used by guests who wish to smoke, which means the smell gets inside as the door is opened; so avoid being seated at a table... More

Breakfast is not bad: buffet or a la carte. Dinner they want to be too innovative. Tries the rib eye - small portion, mixed condiments, diverse vegetables. I was so hungry that I had to order an additional dish!!! Why?

While it's not the liveliest place, the quality of the food is superb. Had several dinners and breakfasts here and all were excellent. The dinner menu has refined dishes and an interesting wine list; the buffet breakfast has a great selection of hot and cold dishes. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed.
