The food and atmosphere was very good, however, as recommended we did make reservations for a Saturday night. After ordering drinks we were informed that our Groupon would only be taken at face value which was $30. The prices are appropriate for the generous portions but still we didn't count on such an expensive evening. They misinformed the buyer because nowhere on the voucher and information was the limited evenings and times the Groupon could be used. In fact, I didn't need to spend $30 just to get $30 off..hence, Groupon had no redeeming value, and now we won't go back or recommend the place.

The Groupon deal....would never use again. We were charged $8 per person for entertainment which consisted of an older gentleman on a keyboard...not entertaining at all...and it cost us $16. The shame of it is that I am an original resident of Staten Island and when I find a Restaurant, I will make it my preference. I enjoyed the food as the chef is from the prior Aesops Tables, but the waiter service as respects our drink request and the additional charge really did not sit well with me. We will not be patronizing tis restaurant.

We have been to Rick's Cafe several times since its opening--a couple of times with friends. Each time was better than the last. We like that the menu changes seasonally as opposed to remaining stagnant like some restaurants. There is always attention paid to the customer for any feedback, whether it be positive or negative. They strive to make it right.

Great food, friendly staff and entertainment. My wife is a vegetarian and the chef was nice enough to come to our table and make a special dish for her. The owner invited us back and we plan to return with friends this time a bit later so we can enjoy the entertainment after 9 pm

From Our Editors

Drawing on his experience as chef and owner of Aesop's Table, executive chef Dominick Rappa constantly updates the menu of seasonally inspired fare at Rick's Cafe. Waiters serve wine and cocktails to pair with dishes topped with such toothsome curiosities as truffle porcini cream, chipotle ketchup, and marrownaise. Inspired by the character Rick Blaine from Casablanca, owner Joseph Aliotta steeps Rick's Cafe in a classic ambience set to big-band music—the building itself dates back from the Prohibition era, having sprouted from a single cluster of hops. Drinking glasses refract light onto an antique mahogany bar in front of an exposed brick wall. A fireplace illuminates cherry hardwood floors in the dining room, and a private outdoor patio hosts alfresco dining.
