The only town with two Ritz-Carlton resorts, Naples benefits from the brand's fine, precise influence on its restaurant scene. At the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Lemonia has a slightly more relaxed feel than The Grill at the cross-town beach resort. But the level of kitchen excellence is "on par." Mediterranean is the over-arching influence on a tight menu that succinctly appeals to many appetites. Start with the amazing crispy jumbo crab cake and the Georgia peach and beet salad with fried goat cheese croutons. Decide between the sea and the land for entrees such as grilled Atlantic salmon with white asparagus nage and morels or pan-roasted lamb loin with mint pistou. Finish with a light seasonal fruit panna cotta and a sigh of utter satisfaction. The restaurant also opens for buffet and a la carte breakfast featuring healthy and traditional dishes.
- Best for Group Friendly Because: Call in advance to reserve space in the main dining room or private room.
- Best for Breakfast/Brunch Because: Its breakfast offerings range from traditional and healthy a la carte items to a buffet with waffle and omelet stations.
- Best for Fine Dining Because: Lemonia's elegant dining room overlooks lush golf greens; the menu is exacting with multi-dimensional dishes.
