We dined outside, and it was a lovely evening. The trout special was the best trout I've had. The guacamole was excellent as well. And our server was attentive and knowledgeable with helpful but not pushy suggestions.

I visited the restaraunt in the Camelback Mountain Resort while visiting my sister in Scottsdale. The courtyard setting was very pleasant and busy (we had to get an inside table!). The cobb salad was very good with fresh avocado, and my chicken enchilada was also...More

Nice surroundings at this large restaurant. There is an inside and an outside part to this. Outside has water feature as well as nice gas firepit area. Umbrellas for hot days and nice lighting at night make nice touches to this place. Many Spanish/Mexican influenced...More

Make no mistake, the food was well done at Rita's (surprisingly one of our best meals in Arizona), but it was the waitstaff that pushed this review over the top. Julio was our waiter and simultaneously made us feel at home and also like the...More

If you are going to spend the $$ to have good food in Paradise valley, I would reccomend venturing out of the hotel and visiting El Choro, or Elements. Rita's kitchen failed to impress. Food was salty, and expensive.

This is such a fabulous place with the most exquisite food. The ambiance doesn't get any better and the wait staff is the best in the business. Please try them and then walk the grounds to see the most lovely flowers, hummingbirds and peaceful surroundings....More

Food was fresh and tasty with moderate prices. We ate on patio, though you can stay indoors. Nightly entertainment upped our enjoyment.

Food was excellent, service was also very good. Recommend the calamari as an appetizer. It was too cold to eat outside, so we ate inside. The patio looked tempting however, with the many fire pits around. Menu selection was a mix of updated Mexican dishes,...More

There were no dogs there at the time I was there, so not sure, but it wouldn't hurt to call and ask.
