As far as afternoon tea goes, all the elements were there. The food was great and the tea was a nice blend. It was very noisy because of construction and we were sat in a ballroom which was disappointing as far as atmosphere. I have had happy hour here several times and the service was always spot on but not up to par this time. Had to ask for water, the tea was strained before it came to the table, and it took a very long time for the server to ask if the food had things I was allergic to (which I had discussed before when I made my reservation). Just not what I’m used to when I’m dining at the Ritz Carlton.

FYVE is currently under renovation, which was not mentioned on its website. I arrived at the hotel expecting a nice dinner venue because it is, after all, The Ritz-Carlton. Instead, the restaurant was set up in a ballroom, with a bar in the corner (at which you couldn't sit at, like a bar that would be set up in the back of a ballroom at a wedding), and tables spaced out throughout the room. I felt like I was entering a work conference, not a restaurant. It was a very odd experience. Had I known this, I would not have booked my dinner reservation at this restaurant. Part of paying the price for the food and wine is the atmosphere, and the ballroom was unimpressive and overall just an odd dining experience. I was embarrassed when my guest arrived for dinner because we both were expecting a nice restaurant, not a ballroom with tables scattered about.

I wanted this to be so much better than it was. The French onion soup was very greasy, though tasty. The wedge salad was just strange. I don't know what made it taste so sweet, but it was too much so. The staff seemed preoccupied despite only a few customers in a the restaurant. If this were in a Marriott Courtyard lounge, perhaps I would have given better scores, but for a Ritz Carlton, it just wasn't very good.

Elisabeth was the best waitress ever. So kind and thoughtful and considerate. The kids crying and dim lighting was not it. I think their should be better lighting, better photo ops, and another section for the 5 year olds. The food was ok, wish their was more. Also wish you could purchase more champagne. The $70 was steep for 8 mini snacks and weak tea

Afternoon Tea - had a great experience.

Food was good. They had a nut-free plate for friend with allergies. They offered more food, which is common in London, but not guaranteed in the States.

Presentation was lovely. No bartender on duty at the time but they made martinis for us.

Great service.

Small nitpick - the room is a little basic with no view.

The staff was great and the food tasted good but we were hoping for a fancier dining experience. The restaurant was a kind of lounge and a few groups of diners were quite noisy. The prices were a little high—something to consider.

We do Tea at various places. This one is very nice. Room was pleasant, noise level low, service was prompt and polite. A nice selection of tidbits to enjoy while chatting. We stayed from 2 to 5 and they let us chat without bother . I do have to say the chairs were awkward, too deep seated and too heavy to move. We ended up perched on the end of the chair to do the tea.

The Cherry Blossom Tea was great! You check in downstairs at the restaurant and they give you an envelope with your name and a key card to use for the elevator. For the Cherry Blossom Tea you're served in the club room on the 18th floor - great view! It's decorated with faux cherry blossoms with a display of the different teas on the menu. Because of COVID, the tables are far apart. Very nice and quiet, very pretty room, great view (well it overlooks the parking garage for the Pentagon City mall but look past that). Service was really good. You get a your choice of a mimosa or bellini and choose your tea. There were quite a few savory sandwiches. The goat cheese tart was really good. The cherry scone was VERY good served with cherry jam and clotted cream. Also liked the yuzu pana cotta. They even gave us extra sandwiches! Pretty sweets. We'd like to go back again for tea. We were told they do a special Christmas tea and regular tea on Saturdays and Sundays but not on the 18th floor. Would highly recommend.

Very under-whelmed. I think it was the whole experience at this Ritz. Fyve seemed more like a lounge than an upscale Ritz restaurant. Food was OK but nothing special. Plenty of other options in the area that serve better food at a better price in a better atmosphere.

Easter Brunch with my two teen children. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table by friendly faces. The wait staff was very attentive, fast and kind. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The carving station was clean and made sure that we got as much as we wanted. All the side dishes were presented hot and each with a savory but distinctive flavors between them. The desserts were beautiful and very well done. The small details were prefect and everything tasted delicious. We all devoured our food and left full and happy. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience. This mom is very happy she didn’t have to cook for Easter.
