Rita's Kitchen at Camelback Inn, A J.W. Marriott Resort
Sister in laws Bday
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.
Mother’s Day dinner
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.
Outstanding Mother’s Day experience. Food was varied and delicious. Our new Mother’s Day tradition!
This was an amazing Mother's Day Brunch for the entire family. I highly recommend!
Best special occasion brunch in the valley!!!
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
One of the best brunches I’ve ever been to!. So special for Mother’s Day, they went above and beyond. Will go back for every holiday that we can!!
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)
Great restaurant with great food great ambience and great service.
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.
Food and service is always good. Love the outdoor dining - pretty area and the live music was really good.
Excellent Cinco de Mayo “Nuevo Mexicano” cuisine. Outstanding setting and service.
Always a great place to spend a beautiful Sunday with champagne and their fantastic brunch. The best in the Valley - by far!!!
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.
One of the most beautiful patios in the Phoenix area!! Great brunch spot and more!
Best brunch we have enjoyed. Beautifully presented and fabulous food.
Easter brunch was fantastic
Had breakfast on the patio with mom after Easter mass. The property was beautiful....flowers everywhere. Loved the bird security hawk. Service and food was perfect.
I don't know what is better.. the delicious food, the elegant service, or the gorgeous surroundings. The flower gardens are showy and fragrant. Enjoy!
Was there Approx 1 Month ago a new 7.00 upcharge and increased food items by over 25%.One of the Top Brunches I have EVER HAD in my World Travels...Easily in one of my top five meals of my life.
Dont Miss this one !!!!
Best brunch I’ve ever had.
Great place for outdoor dining. Beautiful flowers abound.
Service is unobtrusive and pleasant.
We had the daily special which was delicious and reasonably priced.
We had family in from out of town and it’s a bit of a tradition. Fabulous as always!
Excellent service and such beautiful place to go. I will be there for Mother’s Day!! So excited!!
Great setting but spend your money better and go to the Mission or Barrio Queen - both are much more authentic that this overpriced Marriott venue.
Excellent service and beautiful background. The food was very disappointing though. It reminded me of dorm food, looks ok but just no taste. Won’t go back.
Gorgeous. Love everything about it.
We were staying at the camelback inn, and had checked in with the hostess about getting a table. Only to end up using this app to get us a table because it was quicker than what the hostess had told us the wait was.
The resort seemed understaffed from valet to the restaraunt. Took forever to get valet, check in for dinner was not smooth, our drink order took a long time to fulfill once seated for our reservation, we got our food to share but had no plates to eat off of for a while after we got the food, and then the valet didn’t have an electronic tipping method so we had to use their ATM and pay fees. Every valet I go uses Bravo as a tipping app. The experience just wasn’t worth it and it’s sad considering how much they’ve put into renovating the resort.
We really enjoy having dinner at Rita’s kitchen. The outdoor patio area is so inviting. We also thoroughly enjoyed the live music, not too loud, you could still visit and chat, but nice to sit back and relax to. The whole hotel was very busy that evening with a large event going on and yet our service was just perfect. We really had a nice meal and evening.
Service was great, need better options for kids.
Food was great, atmosphere outstanding. My favorite place to go in Arizona!!
I don't know if I want to recommend this place to non caucasian friends. It was highly recommended to us by our caucasian friends but we had a different experience. By the time the management tried resolving our problem, it was too late, we were just waiting for our server to pick up our payment. Although the management tried to make it a better experience for us before leaving by covering our drinks and appetizers, the damage was done and the bitter taste was left in our mouth like a bad after taste. Otherwise, we had a great server and good food.
We have taken several people there for lunch who were not aware of the beautiful gardens and atmosphere. We are Canadians who come down each year and this place has never disappointed
I have been to Rita's twice in the last month and was disappointed both times. Although the patio view gets a big 10; the food is mediocre. I have had both the beet and goat salad with chicken (barely any) added; as well as the veggie fajita platter. There was very little flavor to either and very pricey. My favorite thing is their Mule....it has a unique taste and if you get it during happy hour ($8), it's more reasonable than the $13/regular price. I will give Rita's perks on their fabulous servers who do a great job.
Loved our waitress she was a delight and the live music was a treat !
