    Great brunch, savory crepes were so fluffy and nicely filled, it came with a small delicious salad. Guava mimosa was also a nice twist on the classic mimosa. Very reasonably priced restaurant.

    Great brunch spot with a sophisticated atmosphere. Not a greasy spoon, more high-end so better for a special occasion price-wise but the menu had a lot of great brunch essentials with a French twist. There was something for everyone - the beef brisket hash and croque Madame were standouts. Went on a Sunday to take advantage of the live jazz and our only complaint is we wish the band had played more! The restaurant was not extremely busy, so the noise level was manageable. Service was great, friendly staff - accommodating and efficient. Will absolutely return.

    The food was cold! It took them 45 minutes to make breakfast items. Our server was kind and friendly. Definitely not worth the price I would never go back. After barely eating the food. We walked a block down to Starbucks.

    I went for brunch with a friend and the service was mediocre despite it not being very busy in the restaurant. It seemed as though they didn't want to help us. My friend arrived before I did and said our server seemed judgmental towards her while she waited. The lemon ricotta pancakes were tasty and served warm, and my friend enjoyed her crepe. I just think they need to work on their service. Maybe it was an off day.

    Ricarda's was really nice. My 2 sisters and I treated our Dad for a Father's Day brunch the Saturday before Father's Day. Our food was delicious. The bacon and potatoes were really tasty. Our server was very pleasant. Service felt slow at times, but I believe she was a newer staff which may have been the reason for that.

    To start the live music was loud. We order coffee and tea. The order came without sugar or cream/milk. We had to ask for it. Also, we had to ask for water and coffee refills. The Lyonnese salad the dressing was salty. Steak and eggs order; steak was over cooked and potatoes serving small portion and greasy. The eggs they buy/use are the xxsmall. Not worth for the price $248

    Went here for Mother’s Day brunch. Ambiance was nice - the restaurant was beautiful and the live jazz was a great touch. The service was very friendly and unrushed. That’s all that was good with our experience. The AYCE brunch for $75/person was incredibly disappointing. Not much selection for the price, and the taste of the food was ordinary. Nothing really wowed us, and for what you pay, you might as well go for a cheap brunch at Markham station for so much less. Overall, come for the ambiance and the service, but don’t come for the food.

    Great Mother's Day brunch at Ricarda's. The food was fresh, made to order, in abundance and very tasty. All stations were well attended. The seating was a little tight in proximity to other tables but understandable for such a busy day. The jazz duo of bass and guitarist was so soothing a lovely. Overall would recommend for a wonderful all you can eat brunch with really good food, service and great location. Thank you!
