Everything was very good from our server to the food & drinks. The only complaint is that we requested to be seated upstairs & we were placed downstairs in a corner. Different vibe than what we wanted to experience - we wanted the lively bar atmosphere but instead got seated in the quieter dining room downstairs.
Though, the restaurant, food, service were excellent, the music was a bit too high for my party to have a conversation outside. We will return but eating inside, where it’s much quieter.
The place is beautiful n great for the neighborhood.👍👍👍
Such great food and service. We always love hitting up Bar Rita for dinner and drinks with friends.
I have been going regularly for about a year now. The food is excellent and the ambience is great.
First time here, went when it was slow but food and everything was amazing! All the workers were awesome! Coming back again !
Service was mediocre... food and margaritas were great!
First time there. Very good .. and I'm a picky person retired from the biz
Waitress was inattentive. Her friends showed up and she spent most of the night hanging out with them. Food was bland and basic. Margaritas were terrible! Tasted like mostly sour mix. First time and last time.
It's great for all types of occasions, bridal showers, birthdays, just because... The drinks are top shelf. They really need to be able to communicate with upstairs so when you're waiting at the bar upstairs and your reservation is ready, the customer has to go downstairs just to check in and come back upstairs for their table.
Otherwise, wonderful experience!!!
Ambiance was nice …kick back type of atmosphere. Great vibes.
Food: chips were entirely way too salty.
It’s was happy hour. We received an unchewable piece of meat for one of the tacos. They brought us another one but charged us for it.
Recommended for fun get to fevers, first dates or just a regular night out.
Amazing atmosphere and food
We sat inside after requesting a change from outdoor seating. Maybe we will sit outside when it cools off. The staff was friendly and attentive, the foos and drinks were delicious. We have visited twice now and plan to return again.
Came here for a birthday, the host and servers were unfriendly and extremely rude. I asked for upstairs and a server from downstairs told me it’ll be 25 minutes. It ended up being 30 plus minutes to get sat down after my reservation. Rosie was the only person who actually cared about us and made sure everyone knew we were waiting for a table. We basically sat at the bar for a while waiting. No one there had a welcoming attitude, every seemed miserable to be there. However, food and music were good. I’d recumbent eating somewhere where servers and host are actually friendly, it would’ve made the experience better.
Mezcalrita was GREAT! Was not a fan of the Birra, but that could’ve been because mine were burnt. The ambience is great! I’d try them again.
Tacos were delicious, service was fantastic and the ambiance was so nice
Bar Rita is always a great place to go. With great service and great food, it was a fun place to go to help a friend celebrate his birthday.
Love going here on Monday nights. The live DJ is a nice addition to the dining experience. The food is just ok, but really overpriced for what you get and mostly bland in flavor. I’ve been a few times and this is consistently the case - so not isolated incidence. Go for the ambiance instead and to support the Monday night event.
Absolutely loved my evening here! We sat upstairs and the view is a must at sunset hour. You can see downtown laudy perfectly. I always order the combo fajitas and it’s plenty for 2 people! They will set you up with (2) sets of everything too. Tonight was my first time ordering the truffle crema corn guac and it was tasty. Overall, it’s a great spot to vibe, with huge portions!
This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool, the staff is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is great, and for their prices it’s 100% worth it.
The food was really good and the price are reasonable. The service is a bit slow but the overall experience is great
This is a good place for Mexican food. Spicy watermelon margaritas are awesome! Best to go during the week, very busy on weekends!
Food and drinks are always great, it just took a while to get our drinks and the service is just ok.
Horrible service outside. We had to keep repeating our order and had to send two back which were cold and wrongs the food was amazing!
Our waitress was super friendly and quick.
Food was amazing! I need that corn recipe, I’ve never had corn made this way and I was super satisfied.
Margaritas were strong and delicious.
The view is beautiful inside and out. Would recommend and would definitely go again.
1. For it being Happy Hour our drinks took a very long time to get to the table.
2. All our food, Appetizers and Main Dishes, all came to the table at the same time. Would have like to enjoy the App's first then be served Mains.
3. No chips and salsa where served (Free) upon seating like EVERY other Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten in.
That being said, The drinks were very good, the Food was very tasty, the atmosphere was Fun (Sat Upstairs) and our waiter Eric was very attentive and personable.
Would go back and would recommend.
Waiter awesome ambiance really cool but the food /drinks terrible. It was obvious the management didn’t plan for the amount of customers. Very understaffed, the poor waitress was working in 2 totally opposite areas. So I don’t blame her for making 15 minute visits to each table
Went around 7:30pm, sat downstairs outside, it had rained earlier in the day so maybe that explains why there were several flying ants near our table. Aside from the bugs, and slightly expensive cocktails, the food was good and was a great place to go, probably better upstairs or inside though..
Gina was great!
Love Taco Tuesday at Bar Rita
Great ambiance great vibes waiter was angelic attentive and nice, the environment was great not too crowded during the pandemic
We were seated quickly, and served with our food in a timely manner. The decor and music created a nice ambiance. Just wished we were given bigger portions of food but otherwise we had an amazing time.
We had a reservation and were seated inside. The drink list is unique and we enjoyed what we ordered from the bar. The food was thoughtfully made and delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive. I plan to return and have already recommended it to friends.
Stephanie was such a great server, she checked on us the perfect amount of times and updated us on the status of our order when necessary. The drinks were great and the food was good too.
Went there for brunch .. the website didn’t specify what days are only brunch days. outside was extreme hot!
I had fun! The waitress was nice, food was fast and the drinks were decent. Worth the wait
Busy night but bad service. It took an hour and 15mins for my boyfriend and I to receive our food to the point we had to take it home because they were closing. I like the environment but I dont think it was right to wait that long for the food
We loved this restaurant!! Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere!!
The original marg is great, not too sweet and a little different from your typical marg. Have had the fish tacos, shrimp tacos, lamb tacos, street corn guac, all very good
Taco Tuesday! $3 tacos and happy hour until 6:30am half off drinks and apps
Love the patio area so we can bring our dog.
