Enjoyed a quick meal at Bites- in the Lobby of the Ritz Carlton in Naples. It is a lovely, lively atmosphere with live piano music. We had the steak frites which was actually filet mignon in bite sized pieces served with fries and sauce on the side, very tasty and just enough if you are not a person with a... More

Located directly in the lobby BITES is a "tapas" style restaurant. Steak with the bearnaise sauce was excellent. Drinks are expensive (as to be expected) but the food we ordered was delicious and good portions when sharing. The jazz was a nice touch but Antoinette really made the experience great. She was professional, personable, and explained the menu well. Good... More

We never ate in a Tapas restaurant but were delighted to enjoy a meal at Bites. We had a number of small plates including meatballs, shrimp, olives, cheese and artichokes. The bread was delicious. All in all a great meal - with great service!

Our only holiday tradition - Christmas Eve @ The Ritz lobby bar! Lovely tree, sweet gingerbread house, big black teddy bears (for photo ops); live background music. Almost too-exotic bar menu; went with the Steakhouse Sliders with too-much-for-a-bar 12-layer chocolate cake. Enjoyed the lovely service, and being amongst family/friends meeting up for Christmas cheer.

Bites is a tapas restaurant in the lobby of the Ritz. The food and service were very good. Our favorite part was the piano player. It is a nice restaurant to visit while in Naples.

What a great spot to have a drink. Such an inviting atmosphere. The small "bites" are quite delicious. And make sure you ask to sit in Antoinette's section! She is a remarkable talent that is perfectly attentive regardless of how busy she is.
