I been to ricardos for dinner and it was great. I recently went for a birthday brunch. I made the reservation weeks in advance. My email said 17 people and that I would still have 2 hrs for the unlimited mimosa. The day of my brunch I get a call in the morning asking if I was coming and if... More

A live crowd. A bit crowded. Didn't like the fact that I was eating right next to someone not part of my party. It's very dark. Music is good but just too loud. Not a good place to go on a first date. Food was AMAZING!! however I learned after this that the restaurant has a C rating. They managed... More

Food was really good. I had the skirt steak (churrasco), and my wife had filet mignon. Service was good and fast also cocktails were great.

Great food and atmosphere. Took a very good friend for her birthday. Went on a Monday evening so it wasn't crowded. They took us right in for our reservations. Drinks were good and the waitress was attentive. Price was okay. Usually what I pay at Ruth Chris but that atmosphere is totally different, so that price was expected. I will... More

The food was yummy but the chef may have taken a nap between our first course and the main entree to explain the 30-40 minute wait!! Portions are generous. Dishes smell good and the presentation attractive. I recommend the flavored sangrias to start. Make sure to tell them to make them strong. My passion fruit sangria was so diluted that... More

Food is very good here! Drink are strong and their Sangria is the best I've ever had.This a loud trendy place. Not a good spot for a quiet date night but awesome for a girls night out. Music is loud, the bar gets packed. If you want the great food but prefer a quieter atmosphere, I recommend trying their sister... More

Ricardo's is definitely worth the trip uptown but bring earplugs if you don't like noise. I'm not sure I get the value proposition of good steakhouse food with very loud music but a lot of the patrons must. It's very hard to have a one on one conversation and with everyone screaming to be heard the place only gets louder.... More

This place was jumping on a Saturday lunchtime - they have a $20 special for all the mimosa you can drink in 2 hours with your meal - great deal & the food is great. Best fries I've had in the US bar none. Great place, we'll be coming back.

Place is Small. But food and Atmosphere was Nice. Waiters look clean and very helpful. Kept checking if we were alright. Going back to try the Shrimps.
