I'll start my review by saying this: All the reviews mentioning the loud music are absolutely right.
But I can also say this about Ricardo. I've never had more fun at a steakhouse in my life. And with that said, the food doesn't take a backseat to the music and the atmosphere in the least. I'm in town enjoying an anniversary weekend with the Mrs. and we eat at some of the best steakhouses in Dallas.
While this is not the ideal place for intimate conversation and romance, it is a fantastic place to enjoy some well seasoned food with excellent service. It starts with one of the best renditions of garlic bread I've ever had. Hot, fresh and you can taste the garlic and see the parsley. I would be surprised if anybody sends anything back to the kitchen because the food wasn't hot. Everything had steam coming from the plate.
I had a ribeye and my wife had the lamb chops and we both left very happy. The ribeye had plenty of natural flavor and was cooked just right. And unlike many steakhouses, the sides that came with the means were more than enough to make for a satisfying meal. You can request side orders but you get plenty already.
We also enjoyed two drinks (mojitos and sangria) and had flan for desert. And I can't say enough about the service, which was attentive and not at all pretentious. We thought about going to a traditional steakhouse like Keen's or Peter Luger's but I suspect this meal would rate just as high, provides a better value and is way more fun.
