Overall an outstanding experience. I bring my mother once a year during her winter get away from the Midwest. The prime rib wasn't as good as it generally is, but still all in all outstanding.

Off their game. Food served lukewarm, order mixed up. Found bone in tortilla soup, carne asada in tacos barely warm, forgot my wife's salad, etc. We had guests and are were very
disappointed overall. Not consistent with prior visits.

We were at a table removed from most of the other guests but the staff provided interfering noise. The set up staff for the next day managed to noisily stack the entire room of clean plates & proceeded to bang down coffee cups at all tables preparing for the next morning breakfast crowd. All of this took 20-30 min & had a definite negative impact on our after meal conversation

Everything very good except they don’t use
Copper Mugs for their Moscow Mule. Drink gets too watery and not good after a very short time.

It was raining that night so our plans for the beautiful outdoor experience were not available. Our server and the entire wait staff made our indoor dining experience just as lovely. Thank you.

Service didn't know the menu very well, but friendly. Food fair, not someplace I would immediately say, let's go back there I really liked it.

I have always enjoyed this restaurant and in particular, this property. The views are great and the service is good. I've never had a bad meal and would highly recommend the burger and the shrimp enchiladas. The Margaritas are fabulous!

Wait staff is friendly and efficient. Our heater ran out of fuel and someone was there promptly to replace it.

I love having lunch at Rita’s kitchen especially on the patio. The food is delicious and the chocolate cookies with ice cream are to die for.

service has declined over the past couple years, food has declined also
setting is wonderful, but getting to the point that it might not overcome the other shortcomings

The Sunday Brunch on the patio is a must. Great food, outstanding service and bottomless mimosas.

Musician guitarist/singer was way way too loud. Most of his songs were inappropriate for dinnertime finer dining. It was hard to talk or hear anyone’s conversation at our table and we sat far from him outside.
Sometimes he sounded like he was howling!
It ruined our meal! So disappointed.
Why not hire someone who has a soothing voice and can sing background ballads.
It was Sat bight 2/10/18. 6:15 to 8:30

Great ambiance and service. We loved the live music. Food was mediocre for such a beautiful, high end resort, and overly priced for what you got. We had to send back our first round of cocktails because they tasted horrible, and ended up ordering a bottle of rose to play it safe. We had higher expectations. Not sure if we'll go back

The lunch was horrid. Iceberg lettuce (???) and hardly any dressing. Chicken breast was overdone and difficult to cut and eat as it was SO dry! And the prices for an iceberg lettuce salad was outrageous!
Service was terrible too. Long wait for extra dressing and refills on water/tea.

It is a beautiful place with outstanding food. We loved sitting outside
