BAR RITA- Fort Lauderdale
Great place for a Monday night with $5 ‘Rita’s. Our only objection is noise level is way over the top. Way too loud !
Chile relleno was small and unexceptional. Margarita was blah. We had a reservation for 2 at 8:00 and were given a high hat table on roof. Freezing cold!
So, let’s start by saying we were initially a reservation of 5 and they were very accommodating to make it 8, 30minutes before our sitting. The bartenders were great... so we say down after having a drink and our server was nice but extremely occupied. He forgot to come back to take our entré order 20 minutes after the appetizer hit the table. He bought us a drink, great. Then the entre
The food is spectacular. Interior design is 5-star. However, the music is not in harmony with the high caliber food and interior design. The music was artificial, synthesized disco that was up too loud. It was an unpleasant distraction from the food. Play peaceful music at a lower volume that supports the great food.
Brunch and birthday
Amazing, love the food so creative!
We had a great time last night. Our waitress was very kind to us, we didn't know what we wanted to drink and she was very helpful in explaining and recommending drinks. The food was delicious, we didn't have to wait so long for it and the atmosphere was incredible, on Tuesdays they have DJs and it was super cool. Definitely 5 starts!
I really enjoyed my meal and I look forward to going back really soon
Service was slow, I had to ask repeatedly to get a water, and two members of our party had their orders come out wrong then had to ask a a manager to go see where their food was when the correct order also took forever. When it finally came the food was excellent but the service left enough to be desired that I won’t be going back anytime soon, particularly when El Camino and Rocco’s Tacos are 10 minutes away.
Great restaurant with good drinks & food. Was a bit disappointed that my 15 top table only had one server. Took over 30 minutes for anyone to get their first drink. Server was sweet but she clearly needed assistance which no one really gave her.
This location is generally pretty loud. They have good food and drinks. Service can be slow but if you are a regular customer they remember you after a few visits. I recommend the chicken enchiladas and nachos!
Great atmosphere, very loud music you’ll be screaming the entire time!
We were warmly greeted upon arrival. Our server was friendly and offered suggestions. My partner enjoyed a mango margarita. I asked for iced tea and my glass was refilled without having to ask.
The special appetizer of guacamole with charred corn and cheese was delicious. It’s ample to share with a group.
I had fajitas that were perfect! I was surprised that the tortillas were very small but there were enough to use all the fillings. My partner enjoyed chicken ala plancha and it was delicious, served with a special slaw. Since dinner was so good, we had to try dessert. It was good but we ate too much. We will go again and enjoy everything in moderation. They have take out boxes.
Great upstairs view. Pretty bar. The service was excellent. The drinks were good. Only complaint was the food. The chicken enchiladas were hard as a rock. The chips and salsa and guac was overpriced. The taco platter was average. Not sure I’d go back for anything but drinks.
I love going here for the delicious food, fantastic margaritas, and the upstairs open air ambiance!!
The ambience of this restaurant is amazing! I absolutely love the attention to detail. The food was really terrific and our server was friendly.
I was thoroughly impressed by this restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We ere seated right away upon arrival in the upstairs area. Our waiter was attentive and kept the drinks flowing. We came to celebrate my hubby's birthday and knowing this, the waiter brought us a shot that was amazing. The guac was on point and the spicy margs exceeded my expectations. We will definitely come here again!
Food, Service, ambience is good, but music is way too loud. Cant even have a conversation with the people your sitting with!
Awesome atmosphere! Delicious food, will definitely be back!
Fun place to spend time with friends
Great food & service
We have been to bar rita a few times decided to introduce it to friends and last night was a disaster we had to track down our waitress twice fajitas didn't taste like before at all were told we couldn't go upstairs because we had a reservation and they were booked and had to sit down stairs even though people continued to walk up there and stand and wait for a table the entire evening they were very understaffed last night disorganized and not interested .. and we were six that wanted to drink. Will be a while before we go back if at all
Love Pride Monday’s, drink food specials and great live DJ.
Great atmosphere with great staff and great customer service and great food.
Great place, great food. Go, try it now.
Pride Mondays is fantastic, the clientele, the energy with the DJ and the servers excellent attention gets me there every Monday, the manager Vince does a fantastic job overseeing everything
The waitress completely forgot about us for 2 hours. We couldn’t get water let alone the check.
Chicken and waffles was to die for!!!!
Love hanging out on the second floor deck... it was breezy and outdoorsy without the heat.
First time there great place. Was there for happy hour great crowd, music , food and vibe
Everything was delicious and the staff was super friendly, I would def recommend!
Amazing food and wonderful drinks. Every thing we ordered was amazing but the service was horrible. At one point we left the table to go order drinks ourselves at the bar.
Always a great meal, and super friendly wait staff! We did sit downstairs however and there was a Latin Band upstairs, they had the sound system in the dining area downstairs so loud we could not hear at the table. However, we asked if they could adjust and they did turn it down. Super fun bar, great environment and well worth the trip
First time here since the renovation and I was very pleased with everything including the service and menu with numerous "clean food and drink" options for the "health consciuo"s individuals. I would not hesitate recommending Bar Rita to any local resident or visitor for a unique atmosphere and dining experience.
great food and service!!! we will go back for brunch!
The food was good. The bar, however did not have my wine - pinot grigio. I can't believe they ran out and didn't bother to restock.
Food was so good! Best fajitas I’ve had in FL and the margaritas are delicious! Loved the spicy watermelon!
Every thing we tried was 5 star! The guacamole is outstanding,the steak,Love the fish tacos, the ice tea is fresh.
Was very impressed - first time here. The food was excellent - I had the truffle guacamole and was very happy with it - enough for several to share as an appetizer. I then had 2 single tacos -a short rib and a beef one, both very good but the Short rib was exceptional - a smoky flavor and a little heat. I had the skinny margarita which was good. Then I tried the watermelon jalapeno margarita, and that will definitely my go-to in the future: not too sweet and some heat, especially from the salt on the rim. Service was great and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We ate downstairs and will try eating upstairs next time - which has a more festive/DJ atmosphere, but has more of a wait from what I understand. I will be going back for what I see as much better than typical Mexican food -definitely elevated.
Had a reservation for brunch and we were sat very quickly. The specials were explained and we picked our drinks and the chips and salsa. Drinks were great and the salsa was also great. The chips are spot on; crunch and salty. The food came quickly and was plated well and it tasted great. Would definitely return. Pricing in line with other tex-mex restaurants in the downtown (Las Olas) area.
Love this place, the food is delicious, nice ambiance and great customer services!!! Ohhh the decoration is colorful and vibrant, Super cool 😎
This was my third or fourth visit to Bar Rita. Always enjoy the staff, have had great service, and the food is delish. Tuesday $3 tacos are worth every penny! Just watch the weather. Heavy rain inhibits seating.
