Very dark, not many patrons on a Thursday evening. Close to entertainment district with so many options needs to shine to be successful. Food was very good price was average to high but offered a 10% discount with my hotel stay. Service was friendly and adequate considering it was slow. Probably try another restaurant when in the area next time.

The food was cold, greasy and we both felt it was reheated our food didn't look fresh. Took over 10 minutes just to wait for someone to pay for our bill, even other people where waiting for service or to be seated.

My husband and I ate here after enjoying the food at taste of Calgary. He ordered his steak medium rare, and it came out blue rare. He told the server who talked to the cook, then said it was cooked right, and they did nothing to fix it. He wasn't able to eat most of it as it was so undercooked. We have never been back.

Went there for a Friday dinner. Service and Food was excellent. Except for desert (chocolate ravioli) that was greasy and not eatable so our server took it off our bill. Other than that everything was just perfect!!!

Ric's Grill is a wonderful place to enjoy a great meal with business colleagues or friends. I like the seating with the booths and that it's fairly private for conversations. The server was great and not overbearing, and knowledgeable about the food specials of the day.

The menu has a variety of seafood, steaks, and dishes to meet most palates. I decided to get the crab cakes ($17) from the appetizer list and side Caesar salad with dressing on the side. There were 3 crab cakes and they were good and not too greasy. The salad was good but I was not a fan of the dressing as it was too thick and goopy.

There's also a holiday menu as well and we ordered the pumpkin tiramisu from it. It was a large piece served with whipping cream and chocolate sauce. It was yummy but if you like pumpkin flavour as it could be a little strong.

Lovely meal and atmosphere in this restaurant!
