Steak and Crab UMMM!

Back for our second visit to Ricardo's while staying at Holiday Park resort. We were drawn by their crab specials in the month of August. It was a pleasant evening so we sat outside. Our server was great. We shared the bruschetta appetizer and both had the steak and crab legs. The bruschetta was... read more

Their sauces are delicious and make this my top-pick for an Okanagan Restaurant. Broad range of gourmet meals made from scratch in a atmosphere where you can feel comfortable 'dressed casual'... yet the patio or indoor seating is perfect for a romantic "dressed-up" dinner. Well-worth the drive from Kelowna or Vernon.

I've never been treated so poorly as a customer. It was my first visit to Ricardo's and I went with my husband and 2 friends for dinner. We all ordered pasta and it took an hour and a half! I thought with this low standard of service, a discussion with the manager would be appropriate. I explained that this was... More

It is unfortunate that not all who come, leave happy. Most do but as in this case, some don't. Clearly these customers felt service was lacking. After reviewing your reservation, time you were seated, time you ordered and time you received dinner, this is what I've uncovered. You were seated at 6pm. You ordered dinner at 6:36pm. You received dinner... More

Staff seemed out of place when we visited. They were friendly enough to customers. But watching them outside of dealing with customers they seemed unhappy to be there. Service was quick and food arrived timely. Food was ok but nothing to write home about. One con was I received a couple side dishes, I figured they may have been part... More

When in Lake Country BC, near Kelowna, we saw a sign leading us off the highway to Ricardo's. We took a chance because it looked like we were heading past a trailer park. But oh my, was it worth it. What an amazing gem. We ate outside with attentive service from Liz. She turned the heaters on for us and... More

We have lived in Kelowna for years and had heard so many great things about this restaurant so we finally decided to try it out and what a treat! Tucked away in the middle of nowhere the atmosphere was wonderful and the food absolutely delicious! The service was a little slow but that's because it was so busy, so be... More

Having dined at Ricardo's before, the 3 of us knew that the halibut with lemon dill sauce would be tasty- it did not disappoint as it was excellent. Husband ordered Greek style ribs which were good. They bring fresh bread with oil and vinegar. The Caesar salad was fresh and enjoyed the slice of Parmesan cheese on top. Of special... More

We have been here a couple times and very very disappointed all around. the food was under cooked but our biggest disappointment was the service. Not only was the waitress slow and screw up the orders but when the manager/owner came by she asked was how was the food the 8 of us at the table said it was so-so.... More

Well sometimes we drop the ball. Apparently this is one of those times. We strive to make every customer walk away with a positive experience. As with most of the reviews on here, you can see that most are quite positive so we are doing something right almost all of the time. If the person person who wrote this review... More
