Love this restaurant. Dining out under the stars with the mountains all around you. Great food and service. The guacamole made table side is amazing! The prickly pear margarita was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We eat at Rita’s often. Valentine’s Day was not the day to be there. Food was tepid, at best. Party of 8 meals, is too many to complain about. We requested the indoor live music to ‘dial it down’ ridiculously loud. I understand he plays normally outside; but please mAke adjustment, or relocate Not a memorable evening, on many levels

In the fall/winter/spring try to get an outdoor reservation. You can self park. They have heaters. Ambiance is incredible. The service was next level. Food was good. This was my first time and I can’t wait to go back. Slam dunk!

Rita's was a great place for a date night. The waitress was very helpful, and let us in on a little secret (enchilada sauce as a side for the quesadilla...brilliant!) The margaritas were fantastic. We sat outside, and enjoyed the guitar player. Not too loud, and the singer was great. I will definitely go again.

Met friends for a New Years Day lunch. Server was pleasant, but we rarely saw her. None of the bussers would remove used dishes until she came around to start clearing. There were crumbs and food bits on the floor from breakfast or brunch that had not been cleaned up at our table and the tables around us. Food was good. It was a pricey meal for lackluster service and ambiance.

Overall a very good experience! Nothing out of the ordinary. The resort itself is beautiful, there’s no mistaking that. The restaurant is relaxed and the food is plenty good, but wholly unexciting.

It is not fancy but super nice and everyone was happy!

Very pricey. Dining was outdoors.with lovely vistas. But it was chilly and the heater next to our table was not working. Great variety of food for the brunch. Food was well prepared and nicely presented. Servers were very friendly and helpful. Waitress for elderly patrons at the next table got food for them not on the buffet.

The restaurant was understaffed. Understanding it was a Christmas Eve dinner...there were many large parties and it took a while to be greeted at the table (10 minutes +). However, the waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was luke warm at best and the menu descriptions did not accurately describe the items.

The brunch at Rita's is truly out of this world. More awesome things to eat than I have ever had at any brunch. Then, to top it all off, they bring you this "dessert tower" (see photo). If you love a really good brunch buffet then you must go to this one. When I went it was $75 per person, and was actually worth every penny.

Fabulous service accommodating our request for a quiet table. The restaurant was extremely noisy and our party of four could not hear each other. The hostess very kindly opened up a section of the restaurant that was closed so we could sit at a lovely quiet table. Service above and beyond the call.
