WEll Miss Ricky’s basically doesn’t exist!, App;arently was changed to a private party only dining at some point but still showing as a full restaurant option on open table to book with full menu. We were looking for a nice brunch option, found this and booked it based on reviews then spent an hour finding parking to make our reservation only to find it is now a hotel bar/restaurant. Do not waste your time with this option unless you want to order bar food at the Virgin Hotel.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
