    We are new to town and went to Rick's for a very special 40th birthday. We actually stopped at the speakeasy next door before the dinner reservation and had oysters and a nice cocktail. It was a very nice experience. Rick's restaurant itself seemed historic and we loved that about it. However our waitress at dinner was not attentive in the least and rarely checked on us even though we spent $300+ on dinner for 3 people. The food was average (2 filets and chicken fried chicken) at best. Needless to say we won't be a repeat diner at Rick's.

    Service was slow and inattentive. Oysters- raw and grilled were really good. My steak, ordered medium rare was medium or medium well. Charred on the outside and lost its seasoning. I was disappointed frankly.

    Wonderful vibe to this place. You walk in the front doors to a dark paneled,old style bar, deep lounge seating and a glass top coffee table complete with magazines on the left. Through the archway is an inviting dining area and through glass door on the far right is a courtyard worthy of any establishment in New Orleans. The calamari was the best I have had in ages and I could have eaten the homemade remalaude with a spoon. The fettuccine Alfredo made 2 meals. A definite recommendation.

    We were seated and served drinks right away. I thought this was a good sign for things to come. The salad was middle of the road. Nothing too special; crisp iceberg lettuce, a couple cherry tomatoes and few slices of cucumber. The buttery toasted baguette slice was the redeeming item. My shaved rib eye sandwich tasted like reheated leftover steak from last weekends bbq. The jus needed salt and "more" beefiness. I did enjoy the house made chips. My companions beef tips were the highlight of lunch. Tender and rich over steamed rice. The portion was more than adequate. My impression: the lunchtime "cooks" didn’t quite have their heart into the meal prep. I believe we will try them one more time , perhaps for an evening meal. Maybe the dinner staff will have a better handle on the menu. I’m still in search…

    Our first time to Rick’s and hopefully won’t be the last. Heath made our experience one of the best we have had out in a long time. Great drinks, calamari was awesome, Filet was cooked to perfection, and you MUST save room for the bread pudding. We sat on the patio, music was on point and ambiance took you to New Orleans. It was fantastic!

    Food was good but both my wife and I ordered medium rare filets and they came out overcooked medium to medium well. Our server never asked how the food was and was generally unengaged. Not a memorable dining experience.

    Rick’s is our go to date night spot and typically have excellent service and tasty food. We’ve been coming here for more than 20 years, but tonight was off. Service was rushed and our server was forgetful Didn’t receive a drink menu or wine menu. Bar drinks were not consistent with previous visits. Recipe was definitely off and was told there’s nothing we can do since they’re made in batches. Food would have been great, but potatoes were under seasoned and I didn’t get the salt and pepper I requested when the salads came…until I had finished my entree. We’ll certainly be back, but the night was not as great as I would have hoped.

    Ate up at the bar. Bartender was very nice. We asked for the most popular dishes and ordered the top 2. They weren’t bad just not good. No flavor in the penne vodka and the sliced ribeye sandwich was just blah.

    We had a reservation for 8:15 pm for my birthday. My kids and husband wanted to treat me for dinner. We were not greeted friendly by the blonde at the front in fact she told us we had an hour to eat before the band started because kids under 21 can’t be in the establishment. We were sat pretty much in the back. The waiter seemed like he was probably told we needed to be out by 9. Just rude and a horrible experience. The website isn’t clear on age after a certain time. Food was good.

    Very nice place but both steaks ordered at the table were tuff to the point of very chewy and had a lack of flavor. The gumbo was good, and the red dish was good. The bread pudding was ok, not anything special. Our service was good, and the restaurant was very clean.

    The steak was not cooked to order. I had to ask for salt and pepper because the crawfish stuffed filet mignon and au gratin potatos were bland. The food at Applebee’s is better than what we experienced last night.

    Love Ricks. Food is always good. Our service is usually really good but last night was VERY slow. We sat for about 20-30 mins before anyone even came to our table. We decided to go to the bar and get our own drinks. The band was late setting up, but once they started it was fun!

    Price was above what the quality of the food. We had the Calamari and it was greasy with the breading coming off. I think they fried it in the improper temp for it to come out that way. My steak was undercooked and was to peppery for my liking. Service was underwhelming and it just did not feel inviting.

    The food was good, one of us had to send a medium well steak back because it was still actively bleeding. Definitely not medium well. But they fixed it quickly. The server was really nice, but for a slow night, she would disappear for very long periods of time so it was difficult to get drink refills, our checks, then waiting for her to come back. We weren't in a hurry but can't give 5 stars for that. Overall, we would go back, it was worth it.

    This was our first time here and we had a very nice time. Our server was professional, polite, and attentive without being overly familiar or intrusive. The place is quite nice and comfortable even though we were there at the peak of the lunch rush. The food was good: I enjoyed my burger but others were more pleased with their meal. The fries were obviously fresh but could have been cooked to be more crispy, in my opinion. I look forward to returning.

    Food was good. Place was a little noisy but that’s because of the hard surfaces in the open dining. Good bartender. Waiter was ok but not outstanding. Waited on the band…..got sick of waiting…left. Band cost the restaurant money. Would have stay and had drinks for another 2 hours but they couldn’t get their act together.
