When you view the vintage photos at Camelback Inn, were Rita's Kitchen is located, you will yearn for the level of service and cuisine that was served before JW Marriott took over this landmark.The setting is still lovely (ask to sit outside, but prepare to wait a lifetime to be served, even when they aren't very busy), but the service...

Beautiful day in Scottsdale, so why not sit out on a beautiful Patio at Rita's Kitchen. I came here with my dining partner for lunch on Valentines Day and it was perfect. Service is excellent and food is very good. I started off with their amazing Sangria while we perused the menu, We ordered the chips and Guacamole and we... More

As long as there isn't a big convention at the hotel ... it's a great great place for drinks & appetizers ...usually a very good small musical person or group .. staff is the best !! But call and make sure the place isn't already packed !!

OK! So they are expecting 10" of snow in our home town tomorrow and we are having breakfast outdoors, in the sun at 75 degrees. What is not to like? The buffet has everything one could wish for in food and drink. The chef made me a breakfast burrito, from scratch, and it was, by far, the best I have... More

Ate dinner here with a large group in January and had a fantastic time. Food and service was very good but the ambience stole the show. We sat outside with heaters and it was beautiful evening! And there was a wonderful live singer/guitar player that we enjoyed very much. We will be back!

It was a treat to eat outside at this lovely restaurant escaping the grey skies of the midwest. We had wonderful service and tasty food. We shared the salsa sampler and guacamole for an appetizer. Loved the 4 different choices of salsa. I had the chopped salad with grilled shrimp ... very tasty with pepitas, red onion, and avocado. My... More

We had the breakfast buffet for $25.00 a person - which they practically force you to choose - as each item is so high priced it does not pay to order al a carte. However, the "fresh" to order omelettes were overcooked and greasy. The coffee is possible the worst I have ever had.

Simple, fresh and delicious in a beautiful setting. Service was outstanding. Heated lamps for January early evening chill, fire pits. Wonderful crafted cocktails and fresh southwestern cuisine. Perfectly suited for this classic resort.
