Diner Reviews
  • "There's not a lot to say here. We liked Ricardo's. It is a typical upper end Mexican restaurtant. All the dishes were prepared as expected and the guacamole was outstanding. The food was served quickly, hot and to perfection. A huge tequila list, so if you have a favorite or are interested in trying a new one, it is likely for sale at Ricardo's. The food was good and there are many dishes on the menu not found in the normal Mexican restaurant. I felt it was a great value - great drinks and everything else that goes with it."

  • "Ricardo's just hit the spot for us and is well worth the short drive or cost of a taxi to get their. Their service was exemplary, the food was fresh, clean on the palate and simply delicious."

  • "We hadn't been to Ricardo's in several years. I was surprised at how small the order of fajitas had gotten. It's about 1/4 the size it used to be. So no leftovers. But the price stayed the same. Or maybe even went up. The food was good. And that's about it. The service was a bit cold. The staff was not very friendly. But they were efficient. The waitress even took my plate before I even started eating my fajitas. I had to ask the bus girl for another one."

  • "Food was below average and expensive for Mexican food, and the service was really poor. You also need to leave a tip in front of the wait staff on the machine they use. When I pushed the 15%(which I should have left 5% in hindsight), the waiter was rather huffy, and asked "was everything all right???" When we left, I received stone-faced glare. Also, smelled like a bathroom air freshner when I walked in. Booth seat was old and uncomfortable."

  • "While nether one of us cared for our main course (fish tacos) the green salsa was awesome. The chips that were first given to us though looks like that just came through a food processor. When we mentioned it to the waitress, she said, "I noticed that." Didn't bother to change them out originally though. I always think a margarita is OVERPRiCED! Come on, we all now what's in, the prices are ridiculous! "

  • "Ricardo's is a neighborhood gem that I have enjoyed visiting over the past few years. I had a spur of the moment idea to ask a few family members to join me there on Friday night for my Bday. I made reservations thru OPEN TABLE and the rest ...a great night. My choice was HALIBUT AJO ROJO, a huge piece of delicious seafood. My sister had BURRITO de CARNITAS VERDES and loved it...other choices;FLAUTAS DE FAJITAS, CARNE ASADA, BAJA FINGERS and CALIFORNIA CHICKEN CESAR. Chips and salsa choices are fantastic. Service was great and the night ended with FLAN and singing Happy Birthday. Great choice, if I do say so myself. "

  • "Food was good but service poor. I arrived promptly at 7:00pm for my dinner reservation. Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. It appeared that people from wait list without reservations were seated before me. It appears that reservations are meaningless to seating priority. Once seated table service was slow. Our dinner order was taken 40 minutes after arrival at restaurant. Dinner finally served one hour after arrival."

  • "I used to be a weekly visitor to Ricardos. Whether it be the old location which is no longer at trop as well as the decatur location. Although the food isnt bad and compares to a few other restaurants, its also not great compared to some places and what it used to be years ago. The service also left a little to be desired. We used to get out food amazingly quick once the order was placed, this time it took quite a while till our server came back after the initial sit down. Once he finally came back to take our order it took a rather longer time to get our food than it used to or what i would consider reasonable. The place wasnt exceptionally busy to justify that. The paging system they use needs to be updated too.. never buzzed us"

  • "We were pleased to enjoy a quiet XMAS-Day dinner here while other establishments were on holiday. The staff greeted and served with smiles. The margarita was HUGE and the food arrived fresh, hot and tasty. No disappointments and we'd repeat again. Surprised to learn of the 24-hour operation."

  • "This is the second year in a row we have gone to Ricardo's for an after graduation party. This year the reservation was made for 30. Everyone did not show up at once, and it was 30-45 mins before our party was complete. From the beginning service was great and everyone received immediate attention as soon as they wandered in. By the time everyone showed up the party became 40 and the head waiter, Freddie, was amazing and accommodated us wonderfully. The whole experience was fantastic and we will definitely be back next year."

  • "The over-all restaurant was great....from the hostess to the waiter. But, the food? Not so great. My husband was still hungry when we left! That NEVER happens at our favorite Mexican restaurant! The waiter asked if he wanted the lunch or dinner portion. He said dinner. Well, if that was a dinner portion, we would hate to see the lunch time portion!!!!!oh, and TWO mushrooms on his plate of food????? Ridiculous is what it was. My meal was pure awful, the chicken was mush! Literally looked like processed baby food! We won't go back. Was to be a special treat for Mother's Day and ended being so not that ;(."

  • "We were very satisfied with the service, food, drinks and seating. We had a crowd of 23 people and I thought the room we were in was very spacious. Even for the kids to get up and move around a bit.(Loved the magician/Balloonist for the kids) We had very prompt service, for drinks and ordering. (the margaritas are awesome) Before you knew it the food was there,hot and delicious. Loved everything on my plate. Thank you so much for making my wedding Reception the best. We appreciated the wonderful service and food. Thank you sincerely for everything. We will definetly return. Thank you again, Angela Davis-Wattles"

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with smiles from all the staff and noticed that all the diners were smiling too. Our food was just like we remembered it, amazing! As a hotel concierge, I am always looking for perfect locations for my guests and Ricardo's tops my list. Great portions (alcoholic drinks included) to match the great value! We will back for sure!!!"
