Yes, it's lower Fairfield County, and yes, everything is getting more expensive, but this place is over the top. Overstuffed sandwiches aren't that over stuffed any more, but still delicious, with great quality. The pastrami and corned beef are excellent. Fries, etc. are extra, but...they give you pickles and really good slaw.More

Conveniently located off the Merritt, we have stopped at Rye Ridge a handful of times while traveling between New England and points south. This was our first time stopping for dinner; the restaurant was nearly deserted on a Saturday evening just after 7. Same menu...we've seen for lunch in the past. Generous portions - even ordering a sandwich understuffed provides enough for a meal and can save $2. A wide assortment of beverages is offered. We grabbed some chocolate covered pretzels for dessert, but could have also selected from the cakes, pies, and cupcakes in the case. Attentive service, relaxed pace, quality food, and something for everyone!More

Ordered on-line for pick up. Got home and found wrong items included and one item missing. Everything was correct on the order confirm and receipt. Too late to do anything about it once home and sitting down to dinner. Also, the dessert tasted very stale....Used to eat there often and enjoyed it. When told about the issues they were not too happy or interested in fixing anything. During the virus crisis they should be doing anything possible to please the customers so they come back. Now, may never go there again.More

Pastrami sandwich. The meat quality was mediocre, portion size was small but the price was large $14. We expected much better for the price, not a good value.

After I wrote a negative review the owner of the Rye Ridge Deli reached out to us and invited us to give it another chance. We did and the experience was much better. We kept it simple, bagel with chopped liver, potato salad and my...wife had a big salad with apples and chicken. We also sampled the health salad. Everything was very tasty and I want to thank Harry for taking the time to follow up.More

Recommended by the friend I was meeting for lunch. Extensive, varied menu including items that can be difficult to find such as chopped liver, and tongue. I had a tongue sandwich, one friend had matzo ball soup and the other had an omelette. We all...enjoyed our meals. It's a little more expensive than other delis but the quality is excellent.More

We have eaten here before. Most of the time we order deli sandwiches. I ordered a dinner salad- Portofino Salad. My husband ordered a deli sandeich- turkey pastrami and one potato pancake. He enjoyed his sandwich and we shared the potato pancake - very good....The chicken in my salad was dried out and hard on the edges. The rest of the salad was good. The manager was nice for not charging us for it. We had good service.More

I’ve been here many times. It s a reliable place if you’re in the mood for a pastrami sandwich and chicken soup. Bright lights and Formica style tables. I wouldn’t call it fine dining but it’s the closest place for old fashioned food in Fairfield...County.More

Stopped here on our way up The Merritt Parkway heading to Boston. Still looking for a great lunch spot on High Ridge Road in Stamford. Thought this might be it. Everything was ok...the food, the service, the atmosphere. Still looking for that great lunch spot...

Nothing special about ambience, located in a strip center. Couldn't tell from the front whether you could eat in, but plenty of seating and seemed like many people were return guests. Definitely real NY deli with anything you could want from a deli. We decided...to stop there on Easter, as an alternative to overpriced holiday menu, Chinese food or diner. Very pleasant surprise. We tried the matzo ball ( huge and light) soup, the one post meal with short ribs, soup base ( comes with dessert and coffee for $21) Also the Sampler platter, choices of 3 from Sable, Sturgeon, 2 types of lox, salmon etc with salads and a bagel. Orginally though $33 was high, but since Sable alone is $60/lb, and got 2 meals out of it-- turned out to be a value and a wonderful treat. Would recommend to anyone looking for real deli food. Good service; Just wish more of the staff understood English better. Will definitely return when in the area!More

I ws visiting family in Connecticut and bemoaned the fact that I have not had a decent Ruben since moving to Seattle 27 years ago, long time. A bartender at our Hotel recommended the Rye Ridge Deli as having one of the best, and boy...was he right! The sandwich was a meal in itself, piled high with corned beef, cheese, russian dressing and sauerkraut on the side so you could add to your taste served on Marble Rye bread, with a side of french fries. If your looking for a good Ruben, look no further!More

We had an enjoyable dinner. They offer a very nice menu- appetizers, salad, sandwiches, entrees, soups, desserts and drinks. My husband and I ordered the half sandwich, soup and salad special. This combo offered a lot of food. I had a half turkey sandwich, chicken...noodle soup and tossed salad with dressing on the side. Everything was very fresh and tasty. In addition we had very good service.More
