“Diamond in the rough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

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.

“Holly Jerk Rib-Eye!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

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!

“Ripe's the spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

If you'd like to experience a spin on Jamaican cooking this is the place to do it. Its not your every day Jamaican restaurant, but instead an intimate, welcoming and yes boisterous place. If you can handle the Rum Punches and chatty locals your on your way to having a great time.

“For locals only- not a place to take your out of town guests!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2008

Small island flavor neighborhood hangout. Food was good, large portions, service lousy. Party of (7), one meal did not arrive until six had almost finished eating; no consolation offered by management. Not enough lighting. Could stand improvements. Would not make the trip from New York City to eat there again.
