Very delicious, a bit more pricey than expected but the service from the wait staff is as exceptional as the food so the overall experience from those two aspects makes up for the value. Will definitely dine at Ricardo’s again!

So thankful we chose Ricardo's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a busy night, but our waitress was so attentive. She helped us decide on our meal and it was phenomenal! Our Chateaubriand Filet was perfectly cooked and just melted in our mouths. The entire experience was amazing. What a local gem. Hands down, one of the best meals i have eaten!!

We were so looking forward to having dinner at Ricardo's for the first time. But from the moment we walked in, we should have known it was not going to be a great evening. First, while waiting at the host desk for our reserved table, managers and cooks and hostesses kept walking up and whispering to each other, waving hands around, and stomping off. We kept hearing snippets of what sounded like problems with bills, or gift cards, or customers. We weren't sure, but it was quite awkward.

We finally got seated (it seems that discussion was the only thing barring us from getting seated for about 10 minutes). Our server was nice, appetizers were ok and came out quickly. Bisque good, salad underwhelming...very herby and couldn't find the dressing. Then we waited about 50 minutes for our dinner after soup and salad. When it arrived, the steaks were done correctly. But the sides were awful. The fries were bland, the risotto was inedible (undercooked rice but so starchy you could barely pull it apart, and with no flavor). We sent it back and actually said it was "terrible." The server proceeded to thank us for saying something about 8 times, telling us "they needed to know." We assumed she was referring to the cooks. Interesting.

Something was definitely going on in that restaurant...and it was affecting the food. We were so underwhelmed, we skipped getting a birthday dessert. The bill, even adjusted slightly for the sides, was over $200 for three people who did not enjoy the evening.

Overall, not a great celebration night out. We won't be back.

Excellent but not obsequious service. Seated exactly at the reserved time. Aging really does improve the quality of the steaks. Cocktails were fine. Nice selection for appetizers. Fries in duck fat were wonderfully crisp although I didn't notice much improvement in flavor. Menu slightly confusing (what are the sides? what's Ricardo's hash?). The bartender is the best in town. Steak was slightly overdone (5-10 degrees) and compensated by a free dessert (since a $100 steak really ought to be perfect). A bit pricey for regular dining but will be back on occasions.

We were seated at table 1 according to our receipt. This was a special occasion for my boyfriend's birthday, and he was seated so that he faced the kitchen entrance with an open curtain looking at a Hunt's pump top container and storage unit. There shouldn't even BE a table in that little alcove. He said his steak was very good, but nothing spectacular -- for $45. The fries were tasty. My ceasar salad was very limp and very overdressed. The croutons were so large and hard I couldn't eat or cut them. I didn't finish it. My seafood pasta was very bland. The seafood was well (lightly) cooked, but the pasta was very limp and watery/oily with no flavor. I didn't taste any onion or garlic, and it was literally sitting in a pool of oil. Very greasy. Our waitress was ok, but didn't offer the beers on tap, which I noticed after my boyfriend ordered a bottle of beer that they ended up not having. By that time I saw a chalkboard of beers on tap, so he changed his order. SO not worth the money! We won't go back.

This place never disappoints. Thanks Rick and Marie for bringing an upscale restaurant to Lacey. I know you've been here for years but this year was my first visits and have been here 4-5 times. Love all the upgrades

Has wonderful handcooked meats and everything is well prepared, from the decor to the food. The presentation is amazing, and the steaks are immaculate.

It took over 20 minutes just to have someone come and bring us water and the service was so slow throughout first day. It was not even busy. It took forever to get our meals. We were celebrating a birthday and made reservations for 1130 AM. The food quality was nothing to write home about. We have been here before and had much better service and food.

Great food and staff. GM (Ryan?) was especially courteous and friendly.

I set a reservation using OpenTable and when I got there they had lost my reservation but apparently still had all of my information on file... had never been before. After a 30 min wait when the restarting was barely occupied we were stuffed in the back and forgotten. The food is good but I would expect that with the price.

I do not think that there is a better cut of beef within 100 miles of Olympia. The food is excellent, the wait staff is well informed of the offerings and are helpful and friendly.

Went for my birthday dinner. The food was great for the most part. Didn't care for the hash side dish, but the bacon risotto was really good. The green beans were a little underdone for our taste. Otherwise it was excellent. The only other "complaint" was the overly loud people two tables away... The tomahawk steak for two was cooked perfectly.

Waiter was very inexperienced. 93.00 steak was very tough.

The food was good, not great. The seating was the closest to McDonald's style I've experienced outside of a fast food restaurant.
