“Lovely outdoor setting”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We opted to order from the menu one Sunday rather than try their brunch which is $59.00 plus tax and gratuity. It does include champagne and mimosas. Our waitress was friendly. Three of the four orders were delivered promptly. However, after waiting a while and no one checked to see if we were OK, we flagged down one of the staff to tell them we were missing an order. The restaurant didn't seem too busy so guess it was just an oversight. The food was good, not outstanding but good. The outdoor patio setting was lovely. There was live music which was entertaining although a bit difficult to talk over. Prices are high but you are at the JW Marriott Hotel. A convenient restaurant if you are staying at the hotel which our friends were.

“Bring your appetite for Sunday Brunch!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

My family (which is my husband, grown daughter and high school son) and I visit Rita's kitchen usually twice a year. The have an all you can eat champagne brunch every Sunday except for in the summer. The food is excellent! There are outside stations that grill a variety of foods including petite filet and vegetables. There is Mexican style, Italian style, sushi, cheeses, salads and of course deserts! We were a bit disappointed that the chocolate fountain was white the day we were there instead of chocolate but we got over it! Its a wonderful experience visiting Rita's Kitchen!

I love eating at Ritas - Try the guacamole, they make it at your table! Tortilla soup is another favorite!
