I went there with a good friend. The atmosphere is really nice with the piano player providing nice music in the back ground. The service was really good, and the food was the best I've had since moving here this past June. I love island life, and this restaurant helps maintain my healthy lifestyle, as well as extremely tasty.

Nice place (our opinion) for a bite and drinks late in the day. Not really set up as a full service place yet it does have an interesting dinner menu. Nice staff and it does have a lounge in the back.

Ripe is such a wonderful treat! The food is organic and fresh, the service impeccable and the ambience warm and cozy. We often have the specials and have never been disappointed. It's become my regular place to take visitors and I often meet friends there for relaxing evenings. We never feel rushed and enjoy long conversations over our main course... More

It's a tiny, beautiful place that has a mellow vibe. The service was fast & super friendly. Everything they server is organic, fresh & healthy. Which is a plus in my book! My hubby & I had their specials (catch of the day, which was a grouper & hubby had their filet mignon) which was absolutely amazing! They have a... More

I go here monthly for a lunch meeting or with family. I've never had a mediocre meal, it's always delicious! Yesterday I had the best fish tacos of my entire life, and a cookie dough crepe that was beyond decadent. Presentation is beautiful and the balance of flavors is delightful. Waitstaff is attentive, and their suggestions have never lead me... More

Stumbled in by accident, were treated very well by Kurt, had good wine and desert. Came back next week for dinner, was great, even though they were out of file mignon that my wife was looking for, a minor bummer.

My parents live in St Augustine and we have been to Ripe for lunch a few times but this was the first dinner we have had there. Everything is made to order and can be gluten free (for real)! They offer amazing gourmet crepes and a selection of fish and beef dinners. It was a Friday night so we also... More

We had flatiron steak and it was superb. Great wine selection, and nice salad. The live jazz music was certainly a bonus. Not very expensive - a definite 5 star recommendation!
