I really think this place is one of the best in the area. A real diamond in the rough since it is located in a strip mall. We went here for lunch. We all got great drinks. They have a great selection of wine and beer. I ordered the mahi burrito special which was great. The fish and veggies were... More

The shopping strip near a popular Publix, is not the location you'd expect to find this wonderful little restaurant where the owner chef puts together wholesome, locally sourced and quite delicious meals in the tiniest kitchen just steps away from his wine bar. It's magic what he does with so little. Wine selection here is remarkable as well. When at... More

Back for the first time in a spell for lunch. Always enjoyed the food here, but this time we were a bit disappointed with the service. The waiter was a bit gruff (maybe he had a bad night?). When my wife ordered a cup of coffee he replied that, as we were the only customers he really didn't want to... More

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.
