Rita's Kitchen

Glowing amber chandeliers and a warm wood décor relax and comfort guests as they dine at Rita’s Kitchen, located in the luxurious Camelback Inn. The contemporary Southwestern flair extends to the menu, offering delightfully simple and deceptively delicious dishes such as seafood salads, shrimp tacos and grilled salmon filets. Executive Chef Geno Alvarez created his menu to accommodate a wide variety of guests, and such thoughtfulness is reflected in menu options such as the refreshing Herb Garden salad and classic Shrimp Cocktail, which can be precisely customized to fit each diner’s specific dietary needs. This restaurant is worth the trip to Camelback Inn.

Highly Recomend for a great night out on a budget  

We went on a Thursday night. There was plenty of open space and they set us far enough away where we could have a romantic experience. We never waited for a drink refil. Service was great. The price of the meal was AMAZING for the quality of expeirence that we had. There is nightly live music, outdoor fireplaces, a bar with warm decor.

Great Service- Met my expectations!

Anniversary Date  

It is clear why Rita's is listed as the top 10 resteraunt in the Phoenix area. We wanted a romantic evening diner to celebrate and Rita's did not disappoint. Everything was outstanding. Rita's sets the culinary standard very high. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Great spot for drinks and comfortable meal!  

Lovely Patio, loads of hummingbirds, fragrant flowers and view of Camelback Mt. Good price performer, pleasant service. Great wine selection.

Delicious local cuisine - friendly service  

We thoroughly enjoyed this particular approach to the local dishes of the area. The preparation was excellent. Our servers could not have been more friendly and out-going. We felt extremely comfortable in Rita's.

Rita's at Camelback Inn  

Super upscale Mexican food! The Margueritas and table side Guacamle were to die for! The Tuesday night guitarist was fantastic! Beautiful imaginitive covers of our fave music, and some of his own stuff. Not too loud; we could converse easily. Ambience was good, but resort style, complete with spoiled brats running about, and parents who obviously thought their little dears were all adorable and above average. Beg to differ. No way to avoid this at a resort like this one, we understand. Nonetheless, deduct one star.
