Casual upscale dining. The steaks are the best in the Olympia area. Extensive wine list. Staff is attentive and service is very good. The desserts are very good. Enjoyed the whole dining experience

Fantastic ambiance for a very special night. The selection of appetizers and dinner options are fantastic. There wine selection is extensive, we selected something from the local area but their options cover the world. This is definitely someplace we will visit again.

Ricardo's new address is 676 Woodland Square Loop, Lacey. Their new location is more sophisticated than their previous home. Their meat is dry aged and visible in a glass windowed room. Much of what they serve is locally sourced. They are also gluten friendly. We shared their Chateaubriand with a Dijon mustard crust. It was tender, delicious and not fatty.... More

We had my birthday dinner at their new location in Lacey . I have had many steaks in my 64 years and their's was the best. We could not have been happier with the service and the food quality. It is a must go for steaks!

As I finally made my way to this restaurant I have been meaning to go to, I was not let down. I knew this place to be top shelf and wanted to go on a special occasion. The restaurant had just moved to the new location and maybe had not yet given attention to some details. The Wine and Entree... More

I took my wife and parents here in June. We've been before and was our go to place in town. This time the service was horrific. I ordered a bone in cowboy ribeye and for 79$ for a piece of meat you'd like it to be cooked right... but the server never came to check... several drinks never came to... More

Excellent visit at their new location, the steaks were prepared perfectly. The Fresh King Salmon was served on a salt plate, it was delicious.

We met another couple here for dinner and really enjoyed the ambience and food. The steaks are really something special, aged and tender like no other. I was happy to see several other menu choices for folks who might prefer seafood or vegetarian fare, so the whole family can be happy. The spinach salad with hot bacon dressing is outstanding....
