I had never been here and my son had been to the old location so we were anxious to check it out. It's located in the. Middle of a bunch of empty office buildings. We had reservations for 6pm on a Thursday evening. We arrived on time and were seated quickly. It was by no means busy and there were... More

Hats off to Rick and his incredible kitchen and wait staff. The last time we went I mistakenly made our reservation at the WRONG Ricardo's in Bremerton or somewhere... More

We had a lovely dinner celebrating my Mother's 76th birthday. We had some particular food requests; they were very accommodating and provided a delicious and special meal. The service was great and the the steak was amazing!! Nothing else needs to be said. Thank you Ricardo's for a wonderful evening and meal.

The food was great, the service was excellent. Not crazy about the atmosphere, everyone is pretty crammed into one small room. We were lucky enough to get the one small table that was private.

Visited Ricardo's in their newer location and we were delighted! Came during happy hour and what a great array of food and appetizer offerings, at incredible prices! Lots and lots of choices, and not the usual pub food choices. Ricardo's has an imaginative and wide-ranging menu for happy hour that will keep you happy and staying for an extra round,.... More

Valentine's dinner on the 13th. This was our first time at their new location and we were given a warm greeting by Shirley. She even gave us a tour of the restaurant, bar and event center! The food is always delicious; we had Chaeaubriand for two, which was cooked to perfection! Our waiter helped us choose delicious wine, telling us... More

Their new location gives the restaurant a more updated feel. Happy Hour in the bar fills up quick so for the best shot at a table, get there closer to happy hour start time. The food is tasty though some items are still a little pricey for happy hour.

Had a very good experience with our staff Christmas dinner. The steak that I had was spot on. Best steak I think i have had in the Olympia area. The atmosphere was ok, the services the same. Overall not a bad experience. The only true disappointment was the price we had to pay. It was not far off of our... More
