Food at the Bacara Ritz is more then disappointing. There is approximately 5 to 6 items on the room.service menu. The menu at all the restaurants are basically the same with a few minor differences. It was nice they had xovid protection and precautions throughout the hotel. But if you don't reserve pool time way in advance you won't be able to get a seat there.
