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....

Though not a big restaurant, the steaks were excellent, the staffs were attentive and polite, the wine was good, and the setting was good. Overall a very pleasant experience to dine here. One of the event that makes my day

I'm from Brazil and over here we eat in good restaurants, i don't really like chain restauraunts so i like the idea of Ricardos being so "private", the steak is amazing and so is the drinks

Excellent food, worth a visit occasionally, very pricey but worth it once in a while or for a special occasion. I had the veal marsala, husband had scallopini. Not a classy night out. Give it a try.

The food is good, not amazing, but good. I like the Lacey Blvd location, but I heard they are moving. That will be a shame as that place is so perfect. Away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Lacey, and the layout inside is great for romantic and private dinners. Excellent wine selection, but nothing really stellar... More

Excellent and classy food. I ordered their steak with lobster (forgot the menu name) and it's mouth watering. The place itself has this cozy ambience and musky type look yet classy. Service are great. Even though the place is kind of small, its comfortable enough to have a nice dinner. Tables are kind of small and when its crowded the... More

I was surprised to see a restaurant in Lacey that actually needed reservations, and even more surprised that 45 minutes later there was a table for 3 available. In all it was a very good meal, not great but very good. I had an amazing Prime Rib that was melt in your mouth tender, and my wife had the chicken... More
