Rita's Kitchen at Camelback Inn, A J.W. Marriott Resort Ratings and Reviews
Zero consideration for being vegetarian. I was told it would take 15 min to make vegetarian beans. Yeah. Hilarious and awful all at the same time-clueless. Clearly. For being AZ I ate huevos rancheros as well for breakfast-epic fail-tasted like marinara on eggs and overloaded with fake cheese.
Stopped in for brunch -on brunch menu was eggs Benedict but they were not out. Had to ask for them but they were happy to accommodate us and made them. Fruit was exceptional and prime rib was very good. Mimosas never ceased to flow and dessert selection was very good. We were there for a special occasion and they did a great job of bringing out a special dessert plate for the occasion. Overall, a very positive experience and good value for brunch.
I have eaten at Rita's Kitchen for the past 4 years. The service has always been good. The ambience is as good as it gets. Occasionally, un attentative parents will allow their chldren to ruin your date night but overall a good choice for special occasions. This trip however had a noticable difference. The fajitas were bad. Almost to the point of having a sour taste. We had taken friends that we hadn't seen in 40 years and it was embarrassing. Food has definitely gone downhill at dinner. Sunday brunch is still good.
Well, we tried one of our favorite stand bys this evening, but alas, we may not be returning.
Things have changed at Rita's, and not for the better. To begin with, there is no management per se, at least no-one who looked as if they could take care of a situation. Sorry, just some immature girl at the front check in restaurant desk.
We requested a certain table on OT, and sure enough, that table was occupied. And they were NOT that busy at all. There was also another couple at the check in stand and they were trying their best to set up a Father's Day gathering at a special table. The 'girl' stated that she would try, but she just could not promise anything.
Okay then, just take the reservations and remove the special requests section from the Open Table form. That way EVERYONE will be the same............Isn't that what everyone wants now?
We are so disappointed.
This is a casual comfortable venue, guests wore hiking shorts and tennis attire as well as sundresses. Outdoor seating has misters and views but birds are pesky. The dining room can be very noisy. The bar is quieter but service can be slightly less attentive than in the dining room or patio as I observed. Server told me that the buffet was "lighter" than during the cooler months and I was momentarily disappointed by that thought but found the buffet to be plentiful and delicious. Brunch classics are all present but I loved the shrimp enchiladas and lean, tender, well seasoned carne asada, with a salsa bar. Instead of offering a dessert table, they bring a dessert tower, with two of 6-8 different bite-sized options but it might be more cost-efficient (with less waste) to let guests choose their own from a traditional buffet. This was an outstanding value, especially with the Cupcake brand "champagne" and mimosas. (Refills were quicker and more frequent on the patio and in the dining room.) I will definitely return!
Perfect weather/temp in Scottsdale causes for perfect lunch sitting on the patio of Rita's Kitchen. Our server Julio was great.
We enjoyed an Ice cold beer while dining on a bowl of their fantastic Chicken Tortilla Soup and a Carne Asada Wrap.
Excellent Service, Great Food on a beautiful day! What more could you ask for!
My favorite place for Sunday Brunch. A perfect combination of plentiful food for all diets with three carving stations, hot and cold seafood stations (with grilled shrimp and scallops and crab cakes!) fresh fruit and more. Great service and relaxing atmosphere. The live music on the outside patio was an added treat for Mother's Day. Hats off to Julian, head chef at the waffle & omelette station.
I've been to Rita's many times, often for special occasions. The ambiance is wonderful- a beautiful patio with wonderful music. It's a great place to bring out-of-town guests, or to celebrate a special occasion. This was the first time I was disappointed with the food - I'm sure it must have just been a misstep, as the food is usually excellent.
At lunch time the service is terrible. The rest. was practically empty, yet it took :15 minutes to be served. Also, I approached the hostess who assured me she'd send someone my way. She sent nobody. I finally ran down a waitress. We ate there once before and it was nearly as bad. Breakfast did have better service.
We reserved a table for 4 Easter weekend. They were serving 1700 people that day! The special brunch resort atmosphere was gone. We will definitely return but never on a holiday. We could barely walk between tables to go to the brunch area. I'm certain that's why the service wasn't great. It's always a very special brunch on normal weekends. A wonderful treat... just became big business for this Easter season.
