We had an early dinner here on a Sunday night (in between Christmas and New Years) so it was very quiet in the restaurant. I think it is usually a very energetic spot which is the type of atmosphere most prefer. I enjoyed my dish - though it didn't blow me away (bruschetta appie, gnocchi entrée); when it comes to...

We have tried this restaurant twice mainly because there have been some good reviews but I have to say both times were not what I expected. First time we were a party of 4 and all four main courses were just OK but nothing to rave about. Tried it again this weekend and same thing, food OK, really overpriced for... More

The unpleasant and downright rude behaviour of the owner/manager left a very unpleasant taste in our mouths and we will not be back. She needed our table for the next reservation and was extremely offensive in her altercation with us. We were leaving on time and I don't understand why the next people to come in would be treated with... More

We had dinner here on a Thursday night. There was a small jazz ensemble playing as we arrived. The set lasted through the first part of the meal and was really relaxing. We had the crab cakes as the appetizer and I had the pork tenderloin with gargonzola. It was excellent. We chose a local pinot noir after intensive review... More

Any prime rib lover will absolutely enjoy Ricardo's blackened prime rib! The menu is diverse and the atmosphere of the restaurant is friendly and welcoming. Reservations are recommended, but not always necessary if you come early. The al fresco dining during the summer is wonderful, and the cosy atmosphere inside is great in the winter. Ricardo's cookbook is a worthwhile... More

Went here on the recommendation of a local-wasn't bad, but wasn't that good either for the prices. From the other reviews, it looks like the restaurant is a little hit or miss. The restaurant wasn't busy the weekend evening we went--I would probably try it again in the future but only after exploring more of the area restaurants.

Was a very busy night with large 4 large parties at the same time. Amazing how two chefs put out the quality of food that they did in such a short and busy time. I had the Pork and it was Better than expected. I was very impressed with the scalloped potatoes, something I'm not a huge fan of and... More

This was my first visit to Ricardo's, went based on numerous recommendations from friends and family. It is a lovely, small restaurant, very eclectic, colourful and mediterranean in design. The food was very good, had a small Caesar salad and the special that night which was Prawn, shrimp and scallop curry over basmati rice. The food was good, hot and... More

We went to Ricardo's last Saturday. We had a couple of birhtdays to celebrate. We have been going to Ricardo's for about 8 years now. Always this has been a favorite, however the last few visits really have been subpar. The appetizer we ordered was the curried mussels. Very tasty as always. My wife ordered the Lobster pasta dish.
