Ripe is a place that everyone needs to get to. The staff are very friendly, the music is great, the drinks are to die for.. But you must have the STEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The flavors are out of this world!!! We alson had the Cuban Plantain Boat, that was yummy too.

Nice authentic Caribbean ambiance. My comment is based in several drinks and dishes we sampled... Overall I was disappointed as the food and drinks were both average nothing spectacular. I have had better Jamaican dishes in NYC. The staff was extremely pleasant, courteous and friendly. The best meal on the menu was the oxtail. Braised ribeye, jerk chicken were just... More

After much persuading, I visited Ripe a 2nd time (after vowing not to go back again). This time, I went with a couple who simply love it. Although my experience the 2nd time was a little better than the first time, it wasn't good enough for me to say i'll be back. I guess i am just expecting more from... More

If you're looking for authentic, this is it. From the outside it looks like a local dive- no big signs, no large address, no valet. Its impossible to tell that its even a restaurant that serves food. When you walk in, you find a dark bar with a few high chairs. Nothing special. The restaurant in the back is not... More

I had the fry fish on December 8th and while it's seasoned very well it needed to be scaled properly, found scales on it wasn't happy. Additionally the rice and peas while passable needed some more coconut milk along w/ more scotch bonnet flavor. My friend in the party had the jerk rib eye, again while seasoned the choice of...

I can't express how much I live this spot. The food , service and ambiance are top notch. The portions are great. The mango mousse is mouth watering. I love sitting outdoors in the summer months.

The jerk rib eye is amazing!! The fry fish and 'Rasta Pasta' was also VERY good. I've had a lot of different rice n peas over the years and even that was the best I've ever had. Ripe is a must go!
