I live in the neighborhood and frequent this steakhouse often. Ive been in the restaurant business for 27yrs and always enjoy myself here. My steak is of high quality and always cooked to specs. I'm going tonite, infact. Only con is they do not serve 1/2 orders of pasta, maybe that will change if I keep asking. Great for check averages and my belly.

I guess I won't know if this restaurant is good any time soon because they won't deliver farther than one Avenue away from the restaurant. I live one block north and 2 avenues west of the restaurant and that's too far for their delivery boys. Can't currently do a pick up due to health so won't be eating here.

My coworker had his retirement dinner last night at Ricardo. I was hesitant when i saw the address of the restaurant. I am a big steak eater. The staff was so friendly Monica was great. We heard christmas music all night which put me in the holiday spirit. The round of shots was a nice touch by Monica. The food was excellent. I had the Prime Rib which i found better that the famous steak house for half the price. Keep up the good work. Will be back.

I was a little nervous when my friend recommended for us to have dinner at this steak house in east Harlem. To my surprise the place was packed we waited for a table and the manager gave us free shots. The music was nice disco. The free garlic bread was delicious. The food took a little long but the place was packed. My porterhouse steak was perfect and at a bargain compared to other steakhouses I frequent. I will be back.

I made reservation about one week in advance. Upon our arrival, we were greeted respectfully, seated quickly. Introduced to our server by our host. Our server was very nice and respectful. The food was great served nice and hot, have no complaints! Would recommed to anyone!

I've been at this place sevral times, the steaks were fine until the last time I went that they couldn't get it right and they were insisting it was done well. I ordered medium rear and the steak that I got was dry and wasn't Juicy at all, it wasn't red from the inside. Once it came back it was cold and the 3rd time it came back it was just burned from the outside but still cold from the inside. I ended up paying for the steak that I didn't eat and the management never thought that they were the cause of the problem. If you're into loud music restaurants that the service inst professional and the food MAY be fine so this is the place.

Friends who have been there before, were eager to share the Ricardo's experience with us. By the time we left, those friends were apologizing to us and tipping minimally. We were on time for our reservation for six people, but our experience was nearly exactly as described by the previous reviewer. When a table in the back finally cleared and we requested it, we were told that it was being saved as part of a reservation for twenty people (who seemed never to show up). As it was bitterly cold outside and warm within, we agreed to be crowded around a table for four across from the grill. Because the aisle between us and the grill was so small, hanging winter gear on the back of one's chair was impossible, and we were forced to make a mountain of our coats on the floor near our table. Getting an adequate number setups and Ricardo's "famous" bread basket took more than half an hour (perhaps the busboys had trouble believing that they would be serving complete dinners at that tiny table.) The restaurant was out of two of the entrees ordered. Steak dishes were good enough, but a pork chop too thin to be cooked on a grill was tough to (even with a steak knife) cut and chew. Desserts sounded better than they tasted, but, surprisingly, espresso and coffee drinks were not that bad.
