Real Good cooked food

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

Hubby and I spend an enjoyable evening at Ripe yesterday evening after having cravings for some Caribbean food. We ordered the jerk chicken and the curried goat...both with rice and peas and a side of plaintain. Both our meals were absolutely finger-licking delicious!!! And you can't go to Ripe without ordering their mango mojitos as they're the best I've ever... More

Ripe is our first choice restaurant whenever we feel hungry. The food is just great, from rib eye steaks, fish, rice and peas, etc, etc, etc, You are never disappointed with any dish you order. Love to visit in the summer and sit in the backyard decorated with banana trees, vine growing all over the fence, and listening to good... More

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
