    Wonderful over all dining experience. Ambiance with live music on their patio sheer perfection! Removed one star because kitchen may be slightly over run, over cooking the salmon and dousing the salad with too much dressing when it was requested to be on the side. Happily, our fantastic and super professional waiter made everything right

    Very poor service. Server was barely to be found. Water glasses went dry, when we did have new drinks come, no glassware was removed from table. Our table was overrun with flies. We asked server for rosemary as a deterrent to the flies and she said she would check. We asked again and she said she forgot. 30 minutes later we finally got some rosemary and the flies left our table.

    A nice dinner celebration turned out very substandard all due to poor service. Our server didn't check back with our table, didn't refill drinks or water, didn't remove finished plates, simply just didn't care about us. Unfortunately, we won't go back for the very good food. There are too many opportunities to eat well in this town, receive exceptional service and feel like our business is wanted. Outside seating with a musician is always our HH favorite, but excessive pesky flies along with horrendous service made this a miserable experience. Too bad, the JW had been one of our favorite places.

    I wish that it was clear when booking that their breakfast buffet is only available until 11am, but once we got there they were willing to work with us and have the chef be available for 15 to 20 more minutes than anticipated. I sincerely appreciated their efforts to meet our needs and the buffet was delicious! We will definitely be back!

    Our experience was extremely disappointing on a Sunday evening. Terrible service and mediocre food in a lovely outdoor setting. Waited almost 1 and 1/2 hours for our meals once we ordered. Had to ask our server to take our order; he forgot about us after drinks. The herb chicken breast selection came back as a small chicken thigh and the order canceled. Chicken in Rita’s Burrito Bowl was dry. The veg enchilada not very tasty and very small. We wanted to become regulars but can’t justify it considering the prices for this level of food and service.

    We asked to be seated inside as it was quite windy outside. Our waitress was attentive in the beginning. After we received our dinner, we never saw her for over a half hour because she was covering tables on the patio. If the service had been better, we would have stayed for desert. Will return again for the food as it was excellent!

    The food was okay but I would rather pay more and have the old buffet. Deli meats and sliced cheese was not what I was expecting. I will be back but will likely order off the menu versus doing the buffet.

    Rita’s menu and service has gone downhill. The grounds are still beautiful and we love the live music but what happened to the menu? No more table side guacamole, they changed the tortilla soup, you can no longer get things like fajitas. Margarita was average.
