We had their Breakfast Buffet twice and it was excellent. what you would expect for a Buffet - tasty! Had dinner there once and it was also excellent.

If you are looking for an amazing brunch, great scenery and a great staff then look no further...Rita's Kitchen is the place to spend a Sunday afternoon...At the base of Camelback Mtn, this restaurant is so good. So much food...so many options and a little champagne to wash down the amazing food. It's pricey, but worth every penny

My girlfriend and I went there for brunch and had a very pleasant experience. The outdoor seating is great, and the food was very good...At 39 bucks per head with Champagne ( or cheap tasteless Prosecco), it was adequate ! The service was professional, not over the board but good enough...crabcakes bites, shrimp cocktail, shrimp enchiladas, lox, roasted veggies and delicious cream cheese pastries were amongst my favorites. At the end of your meal, the server brings a two tear dessert tray to the table, and they are good, good enough, I was just too full !!! I had lunch there and I will have to say the food is much better a la carte, it escapes the "Marriott grip of conformity you see at the brunch buffet....There is a better brunch in Phoenix, but not a better setting than this place. If you go there , try their Tex/mexMexican menu, it's quite delicious and overpriced, but you buy JW brand, what did you expect....

The food is very good, the service also is very good but the atmosphere is the real draw here. Outdoor patio dining with a live acoustic guitarist provided, made for a pleasant evening.

This restaurant, located in the J.W. Marriott Camelback Inn, provides an all around great, relaxing, enjoyable dining experience. Tip: Request the patio if possible for happy hour and dinner if weather permits. Walk around the property to see all the flower beds. The happy hour has excellent appetizer and drink deals (like their $5 house margarita, my favorite), especially considering the amazing location, mountain views, water features, flowers, fire pits.There is live music in the background, allowing conversation to continue at a normal level. Not only have we brought out of town guests here, but also our local friends. Then at a later time, they have returned with their friends and their out of town guests! Dinner is great here too, with professional, unobtrusive service. A dessert to share for the table is the bread pudding. It is huge and delicious. Even 4 of us couldn't finish it! This is one of our go-to places, especially with our out of town guests. It never fails to impress. By the way, it is adjacent to the BLT Steakhouse, a renowned restaurant, more expensive than Rita's, and with a later happy hour.
