The gardens are beautiful and most pleasing to view. The service is prompt and efficient.
COVID-19 precautions were maintained and we felt safe eating outdoors. The food was delicious and a good value. The staff were readily available if something was needed but were otherwise invisible. A great midday dining experience.

Queso and margaritas were perfect. Loved the atmosphere (open-air and outdoor seating, fire pits, live music). Service was great - attentive and friendly. I didn’t love the burrito bowl but my daughter did. Lobster quesadilla was good! Somewhat pricey but considering it is at a Scottsdale resort, that is to be expected, I would guess.

Amazing evening under the stars with music and top choices for food and drinks.

They did not rush us out the door and put us in a perfect spot for the outdoor heater.

I have been a long time guest. I even lived on property for a few weeks. I love this property, and staff.
However this past visit to Ritas was disappointing for me esthetically.
I hope perhaps the changes arn't complete. But, it has completely lost its charm, and warmth. It's bare, cold and uninviting.

Rita's is fun open air environment for dining. The salsa's and Guacamole is to die for and the drinks are great. Highly recommend eating outside if the weather is to your liking!

Our first time to visit Arizona and ate at this beautiful restaurant. We had lunch outdoors and the setting is lovely. Two of us ordered salad with chicken. The large portion was actually a small portion and the chicken was pretty dry. My husband, however, had a short rib sandwich which was very good. It's pricy but we enjoyed the beautiful setting

Tasty lunch, outdoors on the patio, which is a delightful and relaxing setting. We enjoyed staying at the resort and appreciated that there was frequently live music during brunch or dinner time.

Sitting outside on a lovely afternoon, with yummy food and great service. Perfect. And we so enjoyed engaging with the Falconer and his hawk as they kept the area scavenger-bird free in an environmental way!

We went for breakfast. The crab cake Benedict was very good. We only found 1 piece of shell out of 4 crab cakes. It was quite good. The coffee was pretty good. The setting is very nice at the Camelback Inn.

Nothing special. Have eaten lunch many times outside on patio and everything has been great. Possibly because of Covid things were out of sorts. The restaurant interior definitely has a cafeteria feel. Bright lights no music... a completely different ambiance than outdoors. A shout out to the hostess/mgr. she was amazing! Very accommodating since our party size changed at the last minute.

We ate here on December 26th. Outside seating. Beautiful setting. The concern is that with their outdoor seating, the tables are not 6 feet apart and other patrons would proceed to rearrange their chairs which made it even closer to the other tables. The music was nice, fire pit nice, but definitely people and place not adhering to social distancing. Food was ok, service was good.

Have been going to Rita’s kitchen for over 20 years and the food has always been good until our last visit. The food must have been prepared by a new and very so so chef. Awful and not close to what we are used to. Please rehire old chef.
Service and ambience was as always excellent.
