We had a great experience and will be back for sure! Juan Carlos was our server and he delivered beyond any expectations. The live music was awesome, and fun but not intrusive, we will definitely be suggesting this to other friends in the area.

On vacay this was a beautiful outdoor setting with live music, good food and great ambiance. Wine list was a bit overpriced for pedestrian selection. Overall very nice.

The food was absolutely fantastic. Group of 5 and everyone enjoyed the various meals that they ordered. We are later in the evening and the lighting, mountains, and music were outstanding. About the only thing that was so so was the service. Our server was very professional and kind but service was very slow. Maybe due to staffing issues so we over looked it but it was nearly 20 minutes before our first request for order had been met. Outside of this fantastic and would recommend.

The food and service was very good. My personal preference would be to add candles to the tables inside and out. It’s dreary

The food was very good although not a big selection. We were expecting regular Mexican items as well (tacos, burritos, fajitas).
Service was ok. She was a little slow and not very attentive

I go often for dinner but this was my first time for lunch and I was a little disappointed in how limited the menu was…VERY little selection. I found a dish that was very good but wish the lunch menu was as comprehensive as the dinner menu.

The place looked quite run down. The service was decent but the food was horrible. Everything we ordered was mediocre at best and lacked flavor and seasoning.

Beautiful setting for a fresh flavorful meal. We ate outside on the spacious courtyard, where there was Live entertainment, and it was perfect. The chicken and vegetarian bowls were colorful and delicious. The fish was prepared well and our meal was enjoyed by all. Although the prices were a little high, we knew that would be typical for hotel dining. Overall - we were very happy.

Server was very busy and this made for a very long dinner. The food was not flavorful as we expected more Spanish influences with the selections we made. Entree’s seemed fresh made but desserts came from a box. Drinks were the highlight.

we were 4 people and were seated at a table near the swinging kitchen door. 2 meals were decent, 2 were not. Restaurant is in a beautiful resort and we sat in the lounge area before dinner which was quite nice. The restaurant would benefit from a menu upgrade to some better , healthy and inspired southwestern cuisine to match the beauty of the resort and it's surroundings. Servers were attentive and friendly.

Overall, an awesome experience! The food was great and our server was amazing. I mentioned in the notes on Open Table that it was my husband's birthday ... from the moment we arrived, the hostess wished him a Happy Birthday, our server wished him a happy birthday and without asking, they brought out a very nice dessert. I will definitely be back to try their lunch and dinner. 5-star experience.

Food and ambiance were top notch. Staff super safe although other diners were kind of close to us at times. We were not in a rush, enjoyed our meal, and I would say the service was friendly and attentive but a bit on the slower side from the bar orders at dinner and brunch. Nonetheless, this was a great reason to stay at the JW and the JW was a great environment for getting a lovely meal or 3!

Rita’s chicken enchilada was excellent.
