“Best steak house in Harlem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

A friend of mine I hadn't seen in awhile recommended that we meet here for dinner. I was very happy she did as the food was EXCELLANT. Loud music on a Saturday night which I seemed to enjoy. I can see some people not liking that. But its very cool spot to hang out at and will definitely be back.

“Trendy, Hip Steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

my wife and I had dinner at Ricardo's. Both of our meals were excellent. Very good portion size and our steaks were cooked as we ordered. The service was excellent.

I had the skirt steak. I recommend it without reservation. My wife had the sliced steak. She thought her dish was excellent.

The garlic bread is great and comes with the meal.

“Good steaks and good atmosphere for young people!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I've been there with my wife, my son (7 yo) and some friends in May.
The surroundings in Harlem are not bad and the location is good. Soft lights and music! Ideal for an informal dinner with a group of friend.
We have eaten in Ricardo's steakhouse twice in a week and I had the opportunity to taste a NY strip and a Filet Mignon. The two cuts were very good, perfectly cooked and not too much "Dressed" which is a characteristic I love.
The service was good and the personnel was very attentive to our children.
Quality/Price ratio was very good.
If I had to find a fault, the music was too loud.
I definitely recommend Ricardo's steakhouse for good dinner in harlem!
