Found out that Rickey’s was recently sold to a corporation, and you can already tell it is losing the small town Novato feel. Heaters weren’t working and nothing was done to at least try to get them running. They lowered the kids menu age to 10 and younger when the meals still cost $10 or more. You go to Rickey’s so the kids can swim and you can hang out with friends. Forcing a small child or order off the adult menu when the prices are $20 or more is crazy. And the quality of food doesn’t warrant it. There should be a different menu for the pool just for this reason. And when someone orders a martini, fill the drink to the rim or don’t charge so much for it. I feel that Rickey’s has gone down hill.

There were eight of us celebrating my husband's birthday. Half of us had the ribs, which were on the dry side. The other half had the raviolis, which were excellent. At the end of the meal, the group wanted the check to be split between two people, but we were told that the check could not be split. That seemed strange since the tip would be larger if the check were split.

Greeted warmly when we arrived. I had requested a booth and that was exactly where we were seated. Leslie our server was anxious to see we had a great experience. The service was very good and our water and bread were brought in a timely manner. Good homemade corn bread with sweet butter. A very nice change for the usual French bread. I really appreciate the special menu Rickey’s has on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Not big servings but 3 nice size courses. Didn’t feel rushed and we enjoyed the great food and service. I would definitely go back again.

Very poor service, the waiter seemed to think that he could ignore us because they had a forced gratuity due to our party size. We saw the bus boy more than the waiter. Food was mediocre.

Food could have been better. Menu looks great, but the flavors and portion sizes are not acceptable. Prices are too high based upon modest portion sizes. Our waiter kept disappearing and we had to catch bussers in order to locate the waiter. We expected an excellent experience and we were disappointed. We’re done there.

We have gone to Rickey's on several occasions. Food & Service has been good. This night food was good service was bad. The time for the waiter to take our order was much too long. We had to ask staff to remove our empty cocktail glasses and empty plates. It was quite obvious our waiter was more concern with talking to the hostess than attending to his work stations.

My second visit - really enjoyed first time but on this quiet Thursday night the service was slow and the food variable. My penne pasta bolognese was very ordinary. The pasta might have been from a packet. The sauce on my wife’s portobello mushroom seemed slightly burnt. Our sons’ ravioli and burger were both good. All in all, somewhat disappointing.

We were at Rickey's twice last week. Both times were last minute decisions. The hostess did a wonderful job of getting us a booth on both occasions. We had our great grandson (5 yrs) the 2nd time. Jorge was our waiter both times. The service was excellent, as was the food. We hope that the new owners will continue the Rickey's traditions of small plate menus, Rickey's supper club cards, and the three item fixe price menu. In our opinion, Rickey's is one of the best restaurants in Marin County.

We have been busy and distracted and traveling and we even expected to be traveling today, when that was changed by one week. Having the weekend home gave us the option of treating ourselves to a warm and tasty dinner for two at a remarkable restaurant. Rickey’s was our first choice. Having the best waiter and staff that we know waiting on us made the chive especially rewarding,

Great for comfort food and best complimentary corn bread in Marin. Started with a chocolate martini- yum! Salmon bisque was excellent , Caesar salad was ok when I added some more lemon and salmon atop was very tasty. Sesame crusted ahi tuna was cooked perfectly. They have full and smaller portion sizes which allow for flexibility in menu choices and prices. A winner.

The restaurant is very good for the special meals at $25.00.

When I made the reservation on the computer, I stated it was for a birthday and it was not mentioned by the staff. So, I guess you don't pay attention when it is for a birthday dinner. Thank you.

Always like Rickey’s. Our waiter said you are in the process of updating the menu, which is much needed. Looking forward to the changes. Hopefully no CA foo foo or small plates! Meat, fish, and good pasta is what we crave.

As a footnote, I had one of the worst top shelf Old Fashions the night we were there. Hopefully that will change!
