Rita's Kitchen at Camelback Inn, A J.W. Marriott Resort
Love this place but service consistently slow.
Very disappointing. I had been eaten here several years ago and decided to celebrate my mom's birthday here. The service was very poor and the food was very average. Very overpriced for what they provide.
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.
It did not live up to Ratings.
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.
Delicious and reasonably priced food. Bar and restaurant staff were amazing. Great hostess from Ireland was also outstanding.
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.
Ordering process went smoothly.
Good came out quickly
Service was attentive to our needs
I appreciate the services. you have the best Sangria!
Very friendly and fast service. Great ambiance. Food was good but only inspired by Mexican favours and not the real deal if you are looking for something authentic. In general very good
We went for Xmas day. They had Xmas menus as well as their regular menu which is hard to find . Xmas decorations were lovely in the hotel.
It is not fancy but super nice and everyone was happy!
Nice hostess staff
X-mass day dinner
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.
It's all about the ambiance and warm welcome as you sit outdoors and enjoy the view.
One of the greats for outdoor Paradise Valley dining.
Beautiful setting and wonderful food! My dad and I agreed that they were the best hash browns we have ever had!! I also ordered a Paloma and it was perfect!
Food was great but service was slow and not especially engaged.
Great choice for weekday breakast, casual or special occasion. Good service, friendly and accommodating wait staff. Breakfast buffet has a wide and delicious assortment including a make-to-order omelet bar.
Food good, ambiance outside nice. I wish the staff was friendlier/ all 4 of us agreed!!
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.
Our server made the night extra special!
Lovely spot. Great patio. Mellow musician. Friendly and professional hostesses and waitstaff. OK food. Killer margaritas!
This was our first visit to Rita's Kitchen but we now plan to go back on a regular basis. The Camelback Inn generally, and the restaurant specifically, provides a great atmosphere. There's an option of outdoor dining with live music. We liked the fact that the restaurant offered both Mexican foods and non-Mexican foods on the menu. Finally, both the food and the service were great.
The receptionist was very congenial and seated us immediately. The service rendered by Carolina was excellent and the food, of course, was superior.
Wonderful food and setting
It was amazing
Everything about the restaurant, location & ambience was fantastic. The staff was amazing & the food was perfection. Can't say enough about this restaurant & resort. Would definitely come back!
Quanity and variety at Thanksgiving buffet was wonderful. Service was excellent. We were seated right away. The only complaint was the desert pies.
Too thin for proper filling which was very dry. Mostly crust.
The inconvenience for which we were treated for unexpectedly having one more person in our party was deplorable. The "elementary school cafeteria" atmosphere made it impossible to have any conversation because the noise level made conversation impossible. Being told we needed to be done with our table within an hour was embarassing and insulting. It was a $550 disappointment.
Have been going to Rita's for years. It seemed better this year. New tables and chairs, and new staff. Menu was similar, but thought the quality had improved. Setting is always beautiful.
A typically class Marriott operation in a beautiful setting. The food is quite good and the staff is attentive. Hardly the least expensive eating place around, but, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
This is a phenomenal place for the Sunday champagne brunch
The service is second to none. The food is superb.
Great fresh crab, shrimp, sushi, roast beef, steak, crab cakes, etc. The desert was excellent.
I could go on And on about the food ambience.
This is by far the best buffet in Phoenix
On vacation...nice meal
I met a friend for lunch and we had a fabulous time! Gigi was our wait staff person and she was great! She was very attentive and the food was wonderful! Very easy to valet park and the valet guys were very fast and attentive! We will join you again soon!
Wonderful to sit outside in the desert and listen to live music
