seating at the Ritz

CLam | Apr 18, 200512:47 PM

If you go for dinner at the Ritz, I would suggest requesting seating at a table. We had dinner there this weekend, unfortunately they seated us at the bench seat in the back of the room and it spoiled the whole experience. They have couple bench seating at the entrance and couple at the back. The seats are rather close to each other that I had actually bumped into my dining neighbor. It doesn't help either that the sconces above our heads were at full brightness. The seat does have the full view of the dinning room and you get to see everything that comes out from the kitchen. In some situations it would be an interesting sight but for fine dining it's not, too much distraction. All I remember was the hustle and bustle of the wait staff. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings so it's a three-hour ordeal. About a third of the way through, I didn't care how the food was, I just wanted to get it over with.
