Really great taste, fast service. Thought it was a little pricey for what it was, wish that chips and salsa were complimentary like every other Mexican restaurant.

Wild Rita's was good...not great. Overall, the decor and the vibe are really cool. The food ranges from mediocre to really good. The dishes are really creative takes on traditional Tex-Mex favorites. The execution sometimes falls flat. Cocktails are outstanding!

We could get a reservation through Open Table easily. The parking was closes by. The drinks were cool and easy on the tongue. The food was presented in an outstanding manner, and the taste was exceptional. I would certainly go back.
If I have one complaint it is the noise level. I was sitting right beside my husband, and sometimes we had to shout at each other to carry on a conversation.

The margarita was good. The salsa and the guacamole were excellent! The burrito was good, but the black beans were too firm. The sides the server said were the best were the ones I ordered... The corn and the sweet potato. Both were pretty terrible.

The gentleman at the front was amazing and helped with my gluten allergy so that i felt comfortable with what was safe to order. Our waiter was friendly but fell short in service. 2 of us in our party ordered fajitas. We did not receive the toppings that came with it (sour cream, Pico, etc) and had to ask for that. We also didn't receive our side of beans and forgot about them until we had left and were discussing our meal. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice so in spite of everything i wouldn't rule out returning.

We had a party of 10 on a Saturday night. We arrived a little early so we waited in the bar and had a cocktail. The bar area was small. The bartender was able to keep up with 10 orders and the drinks were great!

We were seated at the time our reservation was for. We had great service from our server. The food was amazing!

Barrel aged margarita was THE best I’ve had! Queso was fantastic! Meals were okay. Black beans were under cooked. Salsa was spicy but no other flavor. Would go again for margaritas and queso!! Not food.

We shared a large guacamole for starter. Four of us had taco plates (all different) & 1 had quesadilla for lunch. All were quite tasty. Service was excellent.

Not as “Wild” about Rita as I used to be...it’s been quite a while since we have been to Wild Rita’s since Citizen 7 opened in Norton Commons...my mixed drink was just OK for $9, the quest with chorizo was OK. Salsa is still good. We shared one of each taco and couldn’t really say we LOVED any of them...the plantains were ok, nothing compared to plantains with chocolate caramel sauce at C7. We enjoyed the scenery, was too loud at first for casual conversation, but got better as people left. Love the glass decorations, but really missed the innovative dishes that used to be offered as daily specials.

The service was very good, but the food was not impressive. Food presentation was awful and food was cold. The portions were small as well. Definitely was not worth the $120.

Weather dictated our travels took us through Louisville instead of Indianapolis. The only reason we picked this restaurant was for my son’s birthday, and both OpenTable and the website recommended this location for birthdays. We were disappointed that nothing was done to recognize or acknowledge the special occasion.

Upon arriving, we were seated at a table by the door. We immediately asked to be moved because I didn't want to sit by the door because it was 20 degrees outside and it would be drafty. The response that I received after asking to moved came across as "inconvenienced, annoyed and snooty." When I questioned if it was a problem that we were being moved, I was told that "it's just these tables are reserved." I made a reservation as well, and was unaware that one could request tables with a reservation. The restaurant was maybe 60% full. We eat here at least once a month and have never been treated like we were an "inconvenience." Our service was less than par, as well. We sat with empty chips/salsa and water for most of our meal. Pretty disappointed with our experience this time.

This was my second time at Wild Rita's and I really loved the food. The place is usually crowded (went on Friday night) and very lively (not a quite romantic spot). Our waiter was very nice. We did inform him when we sat down that we had theater tickets and where watching the time. Our food came out very slowly and in groups (first 4 people- then the next 2- then 2 more- then 1 last person). Nothing was ever said and I think our waiter felt bad- but the first people were more than half way done when the last person got their food. That's on the kitchen not our waiter. But as I said the food was very good- I might not come again with a big group.
