John and team always make us feel right at home when we come in. Nice and clean and a good ambience. Great variety of cocktails to choose from.
Amazing service! Food was amazing and they went out of their way to correct one food item!
Food and service was better then I could remember, I’ve really missed dining here. Friendly staff with great recommendations. So satisfying!
First time here with family. Great service, excellent food, amazing cocktails. Staff made us an off menu cocktail that had espresso in it and it was the best coffee cocktail we have had at any restaurant. Only small point was the portion size was on the smaller side. We ate everything!
Bday fun. Special rum drinks were yummy
Great experience, as always!
Most definitely get yourself a Southside and an Empanada, or two. (I won’t disclose how many I had, but will say, I am made of cheese now.)
Awesome All You Can Eat Crab and Jerk Chicken on Wednesday
Great evening out! Was sat at the corner of the bar, so service was quick and friendly. The "All You Can Jerk" special was delicious! The Pina Colada at Ricardo's is super tasty, too!
It took a server 35 minutes to bother coming over and grab a drink order off of us.
They claimed they were "confused" over who's section we were seated in. Every person that walked by, once they made eye contact with me, could not look away fast enough. Terrible customer service, and even worse cramped sitting arrangements. I'm a thin person, and the tables were atrocious to get in and out of.
We had such a nice time and loved the personal attention and details. and our bartender was amazing.
Great atmosphere. Even better food! Because of this I would highly recommend, however the service needs a good touch up. Empty drinks for far too long, when she walked right by us about 15 times. Much more awareness required but everything else makes up for it! Delish jerk chicken, crab, Maui ribs and out of bounds, jamaican patties!!!
Way too noisy. Could not hear conversations. Disappointed with lack of service.
Food was tasty. Was not offered a dessert or coffee menu.
Made a reservation and they saved a spot for 3 at the bar!! Politely refused and they did find a table shortly.
Went here for the Christmas pop up bar. Loved the cocktails! Fun ambience. Delicious food too. Our server was lovely and tentative. Will definitely be back!
Service was incredible
Great drinks, staff was awesome. Bar was too warm.
We joined Ricardo's for their "Sippin' with Santa" and the drinks were fantastic and the decor was so cute! Really enjoyed the vibe and atmosphere !
The restaurant was closed.
Most delicious food and drinks. Service was great!
We didn’t eat, the food smelt good though. Service wasn’t great. Our main waiter often forgot about us and we would be served and have better service from other people.
We arrived early and after 20 minutes sitting at the table nobody even greeted us or asked us for a drink order. Probably 10 waiters and servers walked passed us and didn’t say anything. We left and found a real restaurant that offered service and food. I won’t ever go back and can’t wait to see the for lease sign on the door
We want here after our din er and enjoyed some drinks.
All was really great and it’s so cool inside.
Will be back for more drinks and hopefully some food.
Great food and drinks, the server was solid, and the vibe was perfect
Excellent experience multiple times!
Thanks a lot to all the team of Ricardo's!
It is always great here. Lovely patio. Unfortunately City of Calgary was paving right beside the patio. Smell of tar not appealing.
Had a great time! Food was good, the service was good and the rum! So many choices. Only downside was it was noisy. Otherwise, fantastic!
Great food and cocktails! The jerk chicken is AMAZING
We booked a reservation for last Saturday June 8th. We were very excited to be coming into town to eat at Ricardo’s. We have been before with friends and the food and atmosphere were amazing. However when we arrived for our reservation we were very surprised to see that the restaurant was closed without any notice. Open table hadn’t been update to the closure and we were left to find somewhere else that had room to take us. Love this restaurant just wish the communication was better.
Came here with my friends for my birthday on a Saturday night, OpenTable made it extremely easy to book. Skeptical at first but the ambience and food/drinks ended up being top notch. Beef ribs is a must!
I enjoy the atmosphere on the inside of the restaurant but the patio had no music and the service was quite slow.
we were told by our server there was really no gluten free options for our friend so unfortunately we could only stay for drinks.
Just okay. Management has changed. More focused on dollar turnover. Disappointed it's not what it used to be.
After reading about Ricardo's being a great place to feel like you've gone on vacation, we booked our anniversary dinner there before heading to Theatre Calgary. The atmosphere is very fun, and it looks like a bar in the Caribbean. We ordered a Jamaican patty and a cheese empanada to start, then the Jerk Chicken. Wow, everything was SO GOOD!! Such amazing flavours, very much like the amazing food you get in Jamaica. We had a pina colada and some wine. Wow, the pina colada was strong! Definitely want to visit again and get more of that Jerk Chicken and would love to try the Maui Ribs.
