We love the outdoor porch at Ricks! It is our special place to celebrate and we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The desserts were amazing! Save room--it's worth it!

The hostesses and wait staff went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. We had two 93 year olds who needed the extra care that was given. The consensus is that we will be back to eat at Ricks!

Nice people and building. Food not good. Perhaps just an evening at the bar, not dinner.

Not often my husband and I can go out for dinner and this is a new favorite! We can’t say enough about our dinner. From the service, our table on the patio, the perfect dirty martinis and incredible food. We cannot wait to come back!

Our service provider was excellent!
The food was great!
However we were seated at a table where the air conditioning vent was blowing at our legs. No one likes this! Please move the table or close the vent.

Overall we had a great dinner. The night was beautiful and we sat outside which was wonderful. I asked to make a change to the type of pasta in the trio seafood pasta dish and the waitress was very accommodating with my request. We did wait quite a bit to get greeted and have someone take our drink order but there was plenty to keep our attention while we waited. My only request is add new dishes to the menu! The menu hasn’t changed much at all in a solid 10years. I wish some updated dishes would make their way onto the menu or at least significantly expand the specials menu.

I was not expecting the portion size to be so large. The Scallop Tostada appetizer was amazing. The scallops were done perfectly. The bite of tostada, guacamole, scallop, corn, black beans and lightly dressed arugula salad was very well balanced. The filet medallions and prawns were perfect. The sautéed veggies that accompanied them had a delicious touch of heat. All I can say is YUM! Can’t wait to go back and try another appetizer and entree! Maybe I’ll save room for dessert………..

Food was excellent, service was good but appeared maybe a little short staffed, seems that is everywhere in the hospitality industry these days especially with the patio open. Still one of our favorites especially in the warmer weather

The food was great and the staff seemed nice. The only issue was that we had to wait 40 mins for any type of service after we were seated. We weren't able to order drinks/food. We sat outside on the patio and waited about 30 mins and then my boyfriend called a staff member over to ask him if we can order drinks at least while we wait for our waitress. The gentleman was very nice and said he'll find out who our waitress is and let her know. She appeared 10 mins later and after that everything went well. The food and atmosphere was great.

Fist time visitor and I was expecting so much more. There’s no ambiance upstairs so I would suggest trying to avoid. The service was slow and our meals were extremely salty. This is not a cheap place for mediocrity. It’s too bad... I was looking for a new spot.

Service was amazing since we walked in the door, they made immediate accommodations for my grandmother with her not being able to walk upstairs for a table. My tomato soup came out lukewarm and I had asked for my waygu steak to be cooked medium and it came out more rare than anything. The waitress took it back for them to put it back on and cook longer; however when it came back out it was cooked to more of a well temperature. The desserts were out of this world and the cocktails were amazing. Again, top notch service, just for the price, wish my food was cooked properly the first time.

The blackened haddock sandwich contained fish that was neither fresh nor blackened. It was served on a sad hoagie roll with an unripe tomato. Nearly inedible.
