Love the Food, decor????

Always enjoy the food, punch is REALLY good, do not go if you are in a hurry, they operate on Island time but it is worth the wait. Garlic greens awesome. Haven't been back recently but last visit they did not take credit cards so please have cash. The place is small, I mean REALLY small and... read more

If you love Jamaican food you will enjoy the food as it is full of flavor and the drinks pack a real punch. BUT the service is terrible. The place could be half empty and you still wait 30 minutes or more for a table. You have to ask for everything 3 or more times and the seating is tight.... More

I visit this restaurant on a regular basis, sometimes two or three times a week. The drinks are great as well as the food. Service is little slow but definitely worth the wait. The atmosphere is great. Nice place for a first time date or to just hang out with the regulars. I have met quite a lot of nice... More

The food was excellent. I would totally recommended the jerk rib eye. All of the appetizers were amazing and the rum punch was off the charts.

If you're in the area and want to feel like you're back in the islands, here's a little gem. It's a nice spot for drinks and creative Caribbean appetizers. If you close your eyes, you will feel like you are back in JA.

The food at Ripe has been consistently delicious but the service is consistently very slow. By service, I'm referring to how long it takes to be seated and how long it takes to get your meal (whether the restaurant is crowded or not). Overall, I'd give the food 4 stars but the service 2 stars.

Never had a bad experience here, food and drinks are always great, except today. Ordered a medium rare steak, they gave me a well done steak. No compensation or care given from the rude and inattentive staff. Asked for the manager, I was told she left because it was it was too hectic.

The food has never failed me but the service sucks and what I mean about service is waitresses. They need to be more accomodating and service friendly. They need a lesson in customer service.

My husband & I visited Ripe Kitchen and Bar several days ago. All I can say is mmmm mmm Good. I must say though, this place is really small & dark. It has an intimate setting with candles on the table, which would be nice if you weren't sitting in a dark corner towards the back as we were. This... More

Yes! This has been on my must try list for some time and it did not disappoint. Had the spicy shrimp, ox tail and jerk chicken. The shrimp were awesome with the ugly amount of kick...cleared my sinuses too. The entree portions were huge and my friend and I ate every last bite. I wish I could have taken home... More
