Creative food, drink & atmosphere. The menu had unique options which change often. Looking for a small bite to eat, we sampled salad, deviled eggs, cheese & charcuterie. Service was friendly & attentive. We'll be back when in DC again!

My husband and I wanted a place to grab a drink and appetizer before dinner. Ripple was the perfect option. We grabbed a place at the bar with Cody who was extremely knowledgeable about everything from the wine to the best Gose to the charcuterie. If we did not already have dinner plans, we would have stayed there for a... More

Innovative and good food- nice staff and relatively reasonably priced. We were looking for a restaurant to meet another couple for dinner. Ripple was a nice treat- the staff was very attentive and they seated us at a nice table. Interesting menu with nice wine selection and liquor selection. We went early and the restaurant was relatively empty. It did... More

We were looking for something close by and saw a good review for Ripple. As we were passing by, I was skeptical - it a truly an unassuming exterior. We sat at one of the bar tables and were smitten by the bread. It was a delicious start - and I am not a bread person. We had several questions... More

Menu changes often but today my mom and I had the goat, the lobster carrot pasta 2nd course and the bronzino, all amazingly flavorful and interesting. Knowledgeable waitstaff and nice wine list

Lovely dinner for four after the opening of an arts venue at this deliciously enterprising establishment - and always nice to see a familiar face from the neighborhood. The ambiance is a little spare, the device great and the wine list features many not available in stores.

I love Ripple....can't be beat. Innovative and tasty menu. Spectacular staff that loves what they are doing. Modestly priced and inventive wine list. My only regret is I don't live a few blocks away or I would eat here at least once a week. GO

We came here for a fun happy hour in the bar... Grilled Cheese Bar! Oh yes... it was amazing! The bartender was on point and was mixing some creative, but not too over the top concoctions. The staff takes great care and pride in their craft!

We where glad we made a reservation as the place was quite busy, but the staff was very courteous, getting us a seat and drink while we waited for our table to be cleared. Our waiter made some great recommendations for food and the meal was very delicious.
