What a wonderful experience we had at Fathers Day Brunch. The food choices were great and everything was delicious. The staff is unbelievably cheerful and friendly. We were about to give up on brunches in the valley but this is truly a "find"! Love it!

We come here often, but the service was terrible tonight and the restaurant was empty! We also had to send a drink back twice because it was terrible. Very disappointing

The food was not great. My wife’s chicken was fair. I had skirt steak that was very bad. The first order of skirt steak was over cooked and they brought a second order but the meal was very tough and had no taste. The restaurant was very accommodating they took my meal off the check and gVe is 3 complementary deserts.

I say yes cause I’m sure it could be better. Our server worked in the pool area and said he didn’t know the menu. We ordered fajitas and there was two pieces of chicken . He was very hard to find when we needed something. First time here and was looking forward to it.

The food was so-so. My beet salad had a lot of wilted (as in not good) spinach and the tortilla strips in my soup were soggy. While our server was ok, she didn't smile much. We had been there for Happy Hour in early April and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I wouldn't take my sister to her birthday lunch (which they never acknowledged!) again.

The best king crab legs ever! The food was excellent and the service was great even though they were so busy on Mother’s day. The only drawback was a surprise of the cost. Open table said it was $24 per person when it was actually $99 per person.

We went for Mothers day brunch after 41 years in the restaurant industry it was a delight to go out and be on the other side of the table. Alan our server did an amazing job with refills check backs, prebussing and most importantly enjoyable conversation. Thank you for a awesome visit. Also even though we were in side we enjoyed watching the falconer as well as the butterfly release.

Prices have risen but overall it was a good experience. We felt our Champaign got low a few times but our server Jackie was good. Food was abundant. Lots of choices. Would recommend it if you havent had their special holiday brunch (mothers day, vday, easter) book in advance - like 2 months

We love Rita's Kitchen - it's our go to place to celebrate a special occasion - this time my birthday and well as my daughter's. The service was phenomenal - loved the birthday cheesecake (except I accidentally left mine behind - still crying about that!) Will definitely come here again (and again and again)

A warm, inviting restaurant that serves good food. They had a live band playing, and luckily we were seated far away from them, as we wanted to talk. Prices are expected for a resort restaurant. Quality was good.

We love Rita's Kitchen outdoor dining. Unfortunately, we were all disappointed in our dinner. The tableside guacamole was delicious but the tacos fell far short of our expectations. We are hoping the food improves next time.
