I expected hotel prices but the food was bland and uninspired, making it a poor value. The coffee was terrible, very acidic. I asked them to make a fresh pot. That cup was equally undrinkable. I asked the server if I could have a cappuccino instead and why, and she said “I know. We gets lots of complaints. I can get you a cappuccino from the café next door.” That was nice of her. The cappuccino wasn’t great either, but drinkable. The outdoor seating was nice, and actually why I picked this place to meet a friend, but I won’t be back.
The server was so rude. He only talked to us to take our order and never checked on us till he gave us the check. He then gave an attitude because we needed the check was split. The other workers were so nice there besides the server.
Hi JennaJ, We are so sorry to hear about your experience. We do not tolerate this type of behavior. We have sent you a private message to find out more. We hope to hear from you soon. Best.
We went for breakfast based on a recommendation from a friend. My son said “These are the BEST pancakes I ever had.”
Hi ErinE, we are so happy to hear your son enjoyed himself. We hope to see you back soon.
What a fun breakfast spot! Came to Chicago for a weekend getaway and stumbled across Miss Ricky’s. Will be back!
Hi mrijones, thank you for your review. We can't wait to see you soon.
A busy Sunday morning clearly stresses a staff that seemed a bit understaffed. Food choices and menu were reasonable especially when they allowed you to improvise a bit.
A comfortable place perhaps on less busy days.
Hi sonomastan, we appreciate your patience and hope to see you back soon!
Disappointing breakfast. The waffle was great. The omelet was pitiful. It was thinly cooked scrambled eggs with boiled spinach and we had to hunt for the slivers of avocado. Really disappointing. They forgot my sausage too.
Hi StephanieM, we have sent you a private message to find out more. We hope to hear from you soon.
I didn’t like the burger. Was expecting more given that it has the name of the place. Good service
First time at this great new place. What a gem! Delicious breakfast menu, yummy coffee and stellar service. Definitely going back asap!
Hi FandWmaven, we are delighted to hear. Come see us again really soon! Cheers.
Waitstaff was nice.
Good overall. Nice service. Bathrooms downstairs back through hotel.
Went to Miss Ricky's for Mother's Day brunch while in town for our daughter's college graduation. We had a reservation and sat down immediately. Waitress wished me a Happy Mother's day and we were served quickly and accurately. She even recommended the Eggs Benedict bowl and it was fantastic! Would love the recipe for their potatoes. They had rosemary and lemon I think and were just delicious! A place I will return to for brunch!
Hi MollyB, Thanks for showing us some love. See you on the patio this summer! Cheers.
We had the eggs benedict bowl and it was to die for. The service was amazing. We went back a second time and might even go back a 3rd.
We are delighted to hear! Hope to see you soon.
I sat in a booth and sunk so low, my chin was even to the table.
The items on the online menu may not be available in the restaurant.
Friend preferred a salad and the chicken was dry.
Hi Dopt, We appreciate the review and feedback and want to apologize about the service you experienced with us. We are sending you a private message to learn more. Best.
Our server was fantastic. I wish the bathrooms were closer though, you have to walk up to the second floor lounge of the hotel, it’s quite far. Food tasted great but was a bit pricey.
Hi KayP, Thanks for showing us some love! Hope to see you soon. Best, Pam
Best breakfast spot all trip! Wonderful vibe and staff!
Hi there, thanks for showing us some love! We hope to see you soon for patio season.
This place is super cute! Great menu with really delicious options and a great boozy brunch selection. We loved the breakfast potatoes!
Excited to go back in summer for outside seating. .
Food was very good and we were with a sizeable group all were served accurately. My only complaint was I was with a disability person who could not use the stairs to get to the washrooms on the second floor and the elevator to floor 2 was locked without a room key. Maybe lock from floor 3 and up for hotel guests but allow access to restaurant/bar floors? Thank you!
always consistently good:
tried something new this time.
avacodo toast with poached egg
and fresh spinach and tomatoes
with yummy sauce.
depending on what you order
can be alittle pricey.
Stayed in the Virgin hotel and ate here for breakfast. Had the American breakfast, simple, but very good. Will come back here next winter if they offer the elf dinner! Missed it in 2018.
Hi GarrettF, thanks for the review and feedback. Hopefully we'll see you next year, you never know what we'll come up with for the holidays!
They changed the menu. I wend specifically for some chilaquiles. :(
Miss Ricky's offers a diner-like menu but with flavors for today's palate. The space is intimate and comfortable and it has become my favorite lunch spot.
Good food but very small burger patty for the bun...
Great Christmas Day breakfast - pomegranate mimosa and chicken with waffles! The kid loved his fruity pebbles milkshake too!
This is our go to spot for Christmas morning breakfast and it never fails to be great. They offer some unique breakfast items, but you can also just get standard breakfast items. The staff is always friendly despite having to get up and work on Christmas morning. We are very grateful that they are open on Christmas, as while visiting Chicago every Christmas we are pleased to find a gem like this open.
Took our 2 teenage girls for the Elf meal on Christmas Eve day. Server was great! Food was awesome!
We came for the Elf Spaghetti, and loved everything that Miss Ricky’s had to offer! The staff was incredibly hospitable and we enjoyed everything we had from the menu! The Power Protein bowl was a delicious balance to the sugar bomb of the Elf Spaghetti! We had to indulge, though.... We would definitely visit again!
Excellent food! A bit pricey but delicious!!! My daughter had the veggie burger and loved it! My son had the waffles and chicken...excellent!!!
Worked well for an impromptu business lunch. Wasn’t that busy and service was good, but I felt like it could have been better (more attentive) due to limited customers in the restaurant. My dish was the eggs benedict bowl which was fantastic! Would definitely go back.
Overpriced for what you receive and a very limited menu.
Love this vintage-inspired diner. . .We enjoyed the superior service and the elf pasta🎄
Great ambiance and delicious food! The service was bit slow, but we weren’t in a hurry so it was perfect.
We so enjoyed our time there and we went just for the Elf spaghetti
Decent spot if you're staying the Virgin Hotel and prepared to pay hotel prices for food. Wouldn't consider going otherwise.
There is no kids menu, which would have been ok except the servers had zero interest in making our family comfortable or adjusting to our needs. Small things like enough forks and straws for everyone seemed like a bother to our servers. The food tasted good, but wouldn’t go back.
Great food. First time here and enjoyed the atmosphere. Will be returning.
Great spot. Went there with my coworkers yesterday. Our server was very attentive and nice, I believe his name was Andy. And the food was great! I recommend the crispy chicken sandwich, awesome. Very comfortable seating and atmosphere. Sort of a modern, hipster diner. Will go back again!
The diner was cold. The waiter indifferent...our food sat under lights for 10 minutes and arrived cold; waiter had walked by our table several times and did not pick up the food (I could see the orders, but didn't know if they were ours). They did remake the orders and a different server brought them. Bench seat was too low for the table height. Food was ok, nothing special. A disappointment overall.
Ordered the Cobb salad for $20 (with chicken). Not much flavor and serving size very small. My guest had the double burger. It was ok for a fast food type option but expected higher quality meat at these prices. I assume grade of meat not best because they don’t ask how you would like it cooked - just cooked it well done. The positive was the service. We were seated by a very pleasant hostess and had a very nice waiter. Food was only negative.
