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!

I'm a worshipper of divine tastes, and RIPE, every bit of it, every bite and every measure of standard, is a sensation. Highly recommend you check it out!

We live on our sailboat in Palm Coast and go, every week, to St. Augustine to pick up our mail. We discovered this excellent restaurant by winning a $50 card at a drawing while attending a play in Daytona Beach. That was a truly lucky draw. All the food is made with truly fresh local produce. The fish is always... More

My party of 9 (including 4 children) arrived without calling ahead at dinner time. The staff was very accommodating and extremely pleasant. It was our favorite meal on our vacation with very fresh ingredients, good menu, and great options for my vegetarian family members. The children were also pleased. Would strongly recommend.

A delightful surprise in a strip mall. We opted to be seated in the lounge area with big comfy leather chairs and low tables. The menu was creative and interesting and food can be prepared gluten free. My flounder was awesome, beautiful salad with delicious house dressing. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos and rated them among the best he... More

Stopped by because of recommendation by friend. Strip mall location, no ads, near Publix grocery store and Salon used by many gals in local area. Had a normal lox/bagel breakfast meal that blew our socks off. Also had a Mahi fish tacos which were quite tasty. Waiters very friendly and knowledgeable of the daily specials. Fish option changes daily. Wine... More

Did not enjoy this experience. Our waitress, Torry, did everything humanly possible to jack the bill up by suggesting more expensive entrees, appetizers, pricier wines, etc. I ordered the vegetarian crepe. The crepe was too sweet and heavy for the vegetables. I felt like I had been served dessert. I tried to eat "around" the crepe but truthfully no amount... More
