“A great place for Jazz Night Thursdays”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Ric's Grill in St. Albert, built on the site of the old Bruin Inn downtown is a higher-end restaurant in St. Albert. I have eaten here numerous times and never been disappointed. Extensive menu with seasonal specials. Good wine list. Great steaks.

The lounge or restaurant is a great place to be any Thursday night as they have a live jazz duo or trio performing.

“Incredible personal service and perfect pairing suggestions”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

I am still drooling about our meal last night, at the St. Albert location of Ric's Grill. We were open to suggestions by the manager for everything from our wine to appies to mains to desserts. Ahi Tuna, delicious. Cocktails, yummy. Out of the four of us, my main was voted tastiest, a filet with Borsin cheese, it was like that scene out of What About Bob, where Bill Murray just keeps going on about the meal, hehe. We finished with the vanilla bean creme brulle and a cappucino cake with specialty coffees that I wish Starbucks could serve. Service was incredibly attentive and the suggestions opened us up to menu items we would not normally order, but thoroughly enjoyed. Going back for sure next time we are in town!

“Food was Terrible”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

We were on our way to Nellos on Eastrer Monday and it was unfortunately closed. SO we decided to try out Ric's Grill. There were 4 of us there and we all couldnt finish our meal. The food was terrible. Two of us ordered the coconut curry chicken which was very greasy and mushy. The chefs special were these potatoes that were disgusting they were old and sooo salty. The next meal was a steak that also came with the salt potatoes. The steak was all fat. And the side veggies which you would think would be grilled if its called Rics Grill were boiled. The last meal was the worst. It was a pasta dish with peppercorn steak. We assumed the pasta would have a tomato sauce of some kind however it was peppercorn steak gravy dumped over soggy noddles. The smell was terrible let alone the taste. They have nothing on Chef Boyardee because that is who I would be able to compare this meal to. I am so disgusted we had to waste over 100 on a meal that you could find better in a high school cafe.

Good food, and attentive service. Steaks are tasty, done as ordered, and seafood is fresh and not overly cooked.

“Not so Prime Rib”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Went to Ric's Grill with friends to celebrate our four June birthdays. Thank goodness for good friends who made the evening enjoyable. This was my second time to this location and a I am sorry to report that not much has changed. Service was pleasant and orders were taken with some enthusiasm. This was my best part of the meal our server tried to make our evening out enjoyable as she should have done. Our friends request for low or no sodium appetizer and meal was not met, after our server returned from the kitchen, we were told they would have some difficulty make a low sodium fish entre'?? now the biggest problem.When you grill or zap a Prime Rib I would think you could get the temperature correct after two attempts. Not so the first was basically well done, had ordered med-rare, the second attempt was blue rare!
This was our third time at the RIc's and we only went because our friends had a gift certificate. I will not return!!
