Needs table cloths to top it off!This restaurant is a "neighborhood gem." Really good food, great service, and average pricing. My only recommendations would be as follows: Put out white table clothes for the tables. It would provide such a nice "specialness" to the place. Also, the desserts need to be changed. What about a cheesecake? I didn't have dessert this time for as I'm tired of the selection, plus the desserts aren't that tasty, therefore, not worth the price. I consider them to be of average taste. I do like the Salted/carmel brownie but they were out of them during my visit.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't Be BeatEvery time I go to this restaurant, the experience is memorable. We always take friends and family as the food is delicious, including the presentation and the staff is friendly and attentive. It's relaxing yet impressive. My husband and nephew enjoyed the prime rib and could not say enough about how perfectly prepared it was. We all had a fantastic time.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed to get food in my dadTrying to put some weight on my dad! Great food good service. Second time I've been here, both times have been impressive. Recommend the steak for two.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks are the best in town!Ricardo's is a really nice restaurant and the staff caters to the customers. My husband is still raving about the crab & shrimp bisque! The steaks are flavorful and melt in your mouth. The steak-loaf, served with mashed potatoes and vegetables was such a large portion we asked for a bag to take it home. Someone gave me a taste of their steak and it was cooked perfectly. I had the home-made ravilloi with mushroom filling. It was excellent. Probably want to leave the little kids at home. It's not an inexpensive meal, but if you're going to splurge, Ricardo's makes it worth while. We were sorry we were too full for a dessert, which is also one of our favorites.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA special place to dineThe wait people were attentive. The food was good and the wines were perfectly paired to the meal.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMperfect experienceeverything was great from the wait staff, to the drinks, to the food. we will definitely be back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty Good for our 2nd VisitFood was good although not as good as the 1st visit we made. We ordered some of the same items that we ordered on our first visit which included a Filet Mignon for 2 and it was not nearly as tender and flavorful as it had been the first time. This entree was not cheap at $72.00 so I expected it to be every bit as flavorful and tasty as the 1st time we tried it. Our dinner was still very good. We would only eat here for special occasions for a group of us because it is on the pricey side. Still, if you are looking for a special restaurant with really good food and excellent service, then I would suggest trying this place. I've eaten at many local and comparably priced restaurants and the food is not nearly as good.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date NightMy husband and I found Ricardo's on a rare night when our son was on a sleep over. From the very minute we stepped in the doors we felt welcome and,even though we showed up 45 minutes to close, the whole staffed seemed super jazzed to be there. My husband ordered the filet and it was mouth watering delish. The steak is dry aged and the care is evident in the buttery texture. I had the fresh duck ravioli. They were huge and I actually was frustrated when I was full.
Everything from the fresh salad to the creamy creme brûlée was perfect. I'm so glad we stopped in for date night. We will be back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food was absolutely amazing and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be going back!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodThe food was great...the service was pretty good. Loved the appetizer...Ricardos Sampler.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMStuff pork chop to die forThis is our fourth visit, and we have always loved the food, but having had steak recently (which is usually what I get) I opted for the stuffed pork chop and it was super amazing. Moist, super favor, etc. My wife had the crab pasta which was great, but I almost felt bad eating the pork in front of her as she loved the bite she had so much. Highly recommend. Great bread too!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food at Ricardo's was some of the best food I've ever eaten. Me and my date ordered the goat cheese appetizer, which was fantastic. They serve you a small, sliced loaf of bread, with a kind of dipping sauce made with white truffle oil and a mix of herbs. I ordered the ribeye steak, and she ordered a pasta (I cannot recall the name). Hands-down, that steak was the best steak I've ever had, typically when I order steak medium-well, it comes back to me almost well-done, or unevenly cooked, but not this one. After dinner we split the tiremensu, a delicately light dessert; perfect after the large meal we had. The portions are reasonable, we just do not each much to begin with. The service was a bit slow, but it is intended to be that way.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak. If you love it thisSteak. If you love it this is the place for you. Great atmosphere. Perfect for date night.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely hidden Lacey Restaurant20 years in and around Lacey and we hadn't found Ricardo's. We had dinner on Friday with reserved seating. Lovely dinner. Great hostess. Such a treat. We will be back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time @This was our second time @ Ricardos. Food was excellent and the ambiance is cozy. This is a great place to come for a romantic dinner or a fun night out with friends.
Service seemed a little slower this time and we had to ask our waitress to correct an error on the bill, but she did so with a pleasant demeanor. I appreciate that we didn't feel as if we were being rushed to clear the table and we really enjoyed our evening overall.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWine List Nice, But Spendy.Wine List Nice, But Spendy.
