We ate at this restaurant 7 years ago and remember it much better then. It was a Saturday evening. The restaurant was not busy at all. We were a party of 9. Four of our meals were wrong. Service was slow despite small number of people. Food tasted ok but not great. Disappointed

I order lobster with vegetable and i received lobster and french fried. And the lobster was frozen inside. The service was so long and the restaurant almost empty.

My wife and I went to Rancho Steak and Lobster 2 times and looks like we will be going back one more time before leaving the Island. The food was fantastic, I had Chicken Fajitas and my wife had Salmon on both occasions and both times the food and presentation was excellent. I'm looking forward to having a steak on... More

We had a good meal at Rancho. Good Angus filet, nice cocktails and good service. The only downside was the lazy musicians. It took them 1h30 to set up their kit, by which time we had left. Pity because I would have liked to listen to them..

We were met by Randy the bar an who seated us and explained it was busy and he was helping out. He got us water immediately, took our drinks order and returned promptly with our Martinis. Our food order was taken soon after and arrived as ordered. Very efficient on a busy evening.

As I was told by Carlos, the restaurant owner, this place opened a month ago under his tutelage. The chef is from Argentina and as expected he delivers an exquisite meat cut cooked to perfection. The accompanying chimichurri sauce is as good as it gets, and can compete with the better chimichurri from any of the Argentinian provinces or Uruguay.... More

Been going to Rancho for years. What a disappointment to find out that ribs were barely mentioned on the menu. A dollop of extra sour cream was $2.00. Totally ala cart. Very expensive. Won't be going back. So 😢
