The restaurant is under new management but the menu has been the same since I began going to Rickey’s. Menu needs some changes.
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.
Had a very enjoyable dinner at Ricky's. Food was very good and priced well.
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,
I was pleasantly surprised when I entered. It was comfortable and the waiter was very attentive. The food was excellent and I will go back in the near future. I had the steak and it was one of the most tender that I have ever had the pleasure of eating
It is always a treat to be able to find a table and have a dinner here. Having Nelson greet us and help us just adds to the enjoyment of the visit and the meal.
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.
Very pleasant date night dinner spot that is always reliable, but just a little unadventurous at times.
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.
I really enjoyed . I will go back and recommend to my friends
Great place for a family get together on Valentines day. Always good food and service. The small plate specials combined with the Valentines specials were a real treat. Desert was special.
Great value diner club members get free corkage. Makes for a good meal and no cost for alcohol if you bring your own. Sign up on their website
We have had some very busy times traveling too much, so we took the first opportunity that we had at home the dine here. They were busy and maybe short staffed, but the pace went well and the food was delivered flawlessly. It was even better than we remembered.
The food was excellent and the service superb. there is a nice selection of options.
Great food...just the right amount fir small plates. Tasty, friendly, accomodating staff, nice wine list, easy to get to.
Nice, quiet atmosphere, even for a Friday. Was able to converse. Lots of menu choices and I like the smaller appetite/price options. Everything we had was delicious and great service! Very enjoyable dinner.
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!
We had a great time at Rickey's. Their mid-week dinner specials offer a wide variety of meals, including salad, dessert and a glass of wine. Wonderful food at an incredible price!
Fun local place. Solid Burger and they do offer smaller plates if you aren't super hungry. Definitely will go back.
We enjoy special occasions and getting together with friends at Rickey's.
We had a great time at Rickey's, as always. Our waitress Leslie was very friendly and made a point of explain some of the perks available from our Rickey's card. One busser seemed in a bad mood and was somewhat abrupt. Otherwise, it was a great experience.
Excellent menu, many choices including small plates. Outstanding ambiance and service.
The live music was a nice touch but a bit loud.
This was the one weekend we had to get home early and then go out to dinner and have a wonderful meal with the marvelous help of Nelson and this amazing staff. It was everything we hoped and expected. Thank you to this great crew.
The music was so awesome for New Years Eve celebration, and the service excellent. Leslie took good care of us!!
It was New Year’s Eve so I’m guessing they just couldn’t handle the restaurant being busy?? It wasn’t even completely full. No crowd at the bar. We sat down just before 7pm and didn’t see our server until 7:18. We got our drinks a few minutes before dinner was served. Just overall disappointing on New Year’s Eve.
We went on a Saturday thinking that Sunday would be jammed. We ate at a relaxing pace and enjoyed every morsel. The service was superior.
This was 0ur second time here and the experiences were like night and day. The first time things were perfect,this time it was almost unbearably noisy. The shrimp in the ciopino was seriously overcooked although the rest of it was delicious. The salad was under dressed and dry. And the poached pear although pretty on the plate was served a spoon which made it hard to eat. I had to ask for proper utensils to eat it also had to ask for coffee service as the waiter didn't offer . I recommend Rickeys for daily dinner but not for holidays .also the table arrangement made it hard for people with walkers and such to negotiate the room, also the holiday menu had no provisions for food allergies, my wife would have loved to have tried the Galette. But, she is allergic to shiitake mushrooms.
Since it was Christmas Eve and maybe not the best time to try someplace we haven’t been we may try again. But entrees were all over cooked and the rest of the meal was not anything special.
Dined at Rickey's for Christmas Eve. Even though I had made reservations a month in advance, we were going to be seated in the lobby of the restaurant next to the door. After I suggested that they find a better table inside the actual dining room, we were seated. Server was friendly but not real attentive, which was most likely because of being under-staffed. I had to go to the bar myself to hunt down decent wine glasses. The entrees were fine (we all had beef), but a bit overpriced. And the menu for this night was somewhat limited. Not a place I would go back for a special occasion, but might go back and sit at the bar with appetizers.
Slow slow service, but it was Christmas Eve. Sometimes 20 minutes between courses. Hard with kids.
We enjoyed the festive holiday ambience and talented female vocalist entertaining with holiday tunes. Our server was warm, friendly, and accommodating. On the downside, a hamburger ordered medium had to be sent back after we discovered it was cooked extremely rare. My cocktail was out of balance and needed fixing. Our entrees were nothing special. Was the chef out of the kitchen? We're not sure.
The evening dinner was a Wonderful time to spend with my grand-daughter and her husband. It was a celebration of a new job for my grand-daughter. Her husband and I just love your lamb dishes and she loves your fish choices. Wine was great as well as the five choice dessert plate. Thank you again for a delightful evening, we will be back.
We know that Ricky's has recently changed hands, but we were a little disappointed. We had asked to be moved from in front of the music and we were seated by the door (which was fine) but then we had to go and ask for a waiter. I had the small filet which was good but potatoes were very lumpy. We had a coupon for an appetizer and when we told our waiter, he just said he'd take it off our cards and walked away. That would have been fine if we were paying with cards, but we had cash. So we just deducted it from what we paid. Neither of us were impressed with the service.
We will be back at some point, but feel the new group needs to get it together a little bit more before we return. Good luck
We were a party of 10 and our waiter Abraham was on top of things. Food was good and everyone was very friendly.
We came early on what would be a busy night and we’re seated quickly. The banter was light and the service was excellent. Our meal was delicious and perfectly presented.
3 had the prix fixe special menue and all were very happy. Unfortunately I had the Cobb salad with Dungeness crab. The crab smelled and tasted fishy, a bit old. And the waiter told me there was no salad dressing for shrimp louie (guess I should have asked for thousand island) Also, the water is not filtered and tastes awful if you're used to filtered water. Overall good, but for me, terribly disappointing this time.
Have Nelson serve us and the staff buzzing about made us feel very much at ease. It was a very good visit with a wonderful meal.
We have found our new Thanksgiving tradition. The food was delicious, the service was awesome and the price was beyond reasonable. I can't say enough about our experience.
I've always loved Ricky's. John started with a broken down hotel and created a great place to stay and a great local restaurant. John-best of luck to you in your retirement!
