Food was good, service wasn’t not bad but can be improved. Welcome everyone the same way at the door. This was the first time I experienced this.

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.

Worst dining experience at a Ritz-Carlton ever. Had a reservation and got seated right away. Waited 10 minutes before anyone came to the table. Rafi came and introduced himself as the assistant manager (?) and said it was his job to make sure everything was perfect. He told us our server Holly would be there soon. We never saw him again. Holly finally arrived 5 minutes later. She appeared to be the only server in the dining room and was doing her best, but she had more than she could handle. Rafi had disappeared. Ordered drinks and asked for water. Another 5 minutes before we got water. (We've now been there 20 minutes). My husband always orders a Campari drink. It came and did not look or taste like Campari and was white-orange in color. He asked Holly to bring another shot of Campari. 10 minutes later she came back and said they didn't have any Campari. So the bartender had obviously tried to fake the drink. Why not just say they didn't have any Campari? I ordered salmon and two hours later was violently ill. It was a disaster of an evening and we will never return. We have stayed and dined at Ritz- Carltons all over the world and this was far below R-C standards.
