We wanted a salad with protein, and Rye Ridge hit the spot with their Caesar’s Salad with Chicken. As a takeout they set the chicken and dressing on the side, so everything was fresh. Portions were ample, so one was more than enough for both...of us.More

Very clean and new looking and the staff are smart and attentive but the food matches the color scheme: Grey and bland. Almost boring. For example, the “rye” bread is just white bread with something to make it taste a little like rye. It’s not...really rye.More

I visit Westport about once a year to go to Willowbrook Cemetery where my parents are entombed. However I had not walked along Main Street for a very long time before my most recent trip there. I saw a sign outside of what use to...be Oscar's Deli for a special on pumpkin pancakes. I had not yet eaten breakfast so I figured this was the place to do it. I went in and sat down; they also had outdoor seating but it was not crowded inside. I had some sense of flashback to Oscar's but the interior had definitely been redone. There was a list of "Oscar's Signature Sandwiches" on the menu that enhanced the nostalgic theme of my foray. Someone who I inferred was the manager and/or owner waited on me. I ordered the pumpkin pancakes along with coffee and orange juice. The server asked if I wanted regular OJ or fresh squeezed. I ordered regular to avoid pulp, but there was some in the regular anyway. Nonetheless, everything was superb as far as taste goes: pancakes were perfect; coffee was excellent. I see others are unhappy with slow service here, but I was well attended to. My visit to Rye Ridge Deli was a very pleasant part of a Westport reminiscenceMore

Take time to read the menu. It's huge and you're bound to find something that you like here. First time here for breakfast over the weekend. As the weather was warm, we were able to dine outdoors, where tables were spaced, in accordance with Covid...protocol. If you like pancakes, there are so many variations here that it will be hard for you to choose! Both my husband and I had the blueberry pancakes. The three pancakes that arrived were absolutely delicious! They were light and filled with "fresh" berries. The pancakes are also served with "real" Vermont maple syrup. Coffee was also very delicious. We are anxious to go back to Rye Ridge and try other breakfast offerings (there is one whole page of the menu devoted just to breakfast - eggs & omelettes, wafffles, avocado toast in various forms, breakfast wraps, oatmeal.....). We would also like to try for lunch or dinner, as everything looks great! Again, such an extensive menu and the quality of the food was very, very good.More

We had a very enjoyable dinner. They offer a large menu-breakfast, sandwiches, salads, entrees, appetizers, sides, soups, drinks and desserts. I had a Chicken Casear salad and my husband had a combination turkey pastrami/corn beef sandwich. Everything was fresh and tasty as well generous servings....In addition we had very good service.More

I am a bit surprised that Rye Ridge only scores out at about an average rating on Trip Advisor. I would say it should be higher, based on my experience. Sandwiches are excellent and sit down service is good, attentive, and pleasant. I like going...there for an occasional dinner since they are open until 9pm. The interior is new and the booths are comfortable and spacious. Maybe the Westport crowd is more demanding and preferred Oscar’s, which was Rye Ridges predecessor. Who knows?More

Good deli, large portions, good breakfast. A little short on character but good food by comparison with its predecessor but it is spotlessly clean and the food is good and the location is excellent.

The restaurant is a very clean establishment. Wide ranging menu, it’s a deli, excellent coffee and friendly attentive service. Food was well prepared and enjoyed our meal. I make mention of the bathroom which was the cleanest of any restaurant I have ever seen. You...can always judge a restaurant by how clean the bathrooms are since for many establishments it’s an afterthought. Most are messy loose toilet seats just gross. It makes you wonder how clean their kitchens really are due to the lack of attention given. Restaurants really should take note because everything in their establishment is being judgedMore

We had a very enjoyable dinner. They offered a menu with many choices - sandwiches, salads, soups, dinners, side dishes, desserts and beverages. My husband had a combo deli sandwich on rye bread- turkey pastrami/lean corn beef and I had the turkey dinner- included stuffing,...vegetable, gravy cranberry sauce, soup or salad and dessert($19). I had mushroom barley soup(large bowl). For dessert we shared a slice of chocolate mousse cheesecake. We enjoyed all and had leftovers too to bring home. In addition we had very good service.More

Eat at Rye Ridge in Stamford but was in Westport. Matzoh Ball soup just as good and everyone pleased.

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch today and now have a new favorite place in Westport. A wonderfully friendly waitress gave us the full story on the in-house prepared meats and how the menu was arranged. I had a fantastic brisket...sandwich and my husband had a roast turkey with bacon. Delicious! Plus all the full and half sour pickles we could eat. Perfect deli!More

Don't let the gripers get you down. We washed up in Westport while looking for a snack along the Merritt Parkway. I was delighted to spy a Jewish deli. It turned out to be a great place. Busy of course; always a good sign. Great...selection of classics: corned beef, rye, kasha knishes, halvah, and a counter staff who actually wants to know what you want. All very high quality. We grabbed the goodies and ran, so I can't comment on the table service.More

We were downtown Westport Christmas shopping and decided to stop in to Rye Ridge Deli for dinner. I sure wish I’d read these reviews first. We were so disappointed, the staff behind the front counter were just standing around and completely ignored us. We sat...down and were ignored there as well. There was only one other lady and her son in the entire place and the gal that was “supposed” to be our waitress spent the entire time we were there ignoring us and slobbering over those two. She obviously knew what was coming, they ordered 2 deli sandwiches and tipped her $40.00. We ordered soup and sandwiches and were very disappointed with the food. The food was very over-priced and well below average. We will NEVER go back to this place. Needless to say, we did NOT tip the waitress $40.00More

I've lived in Malibu and in NYC and never paid $14 for a cookie. Completely overpriced to the point of embarrassment. Some food is good, some mediocre. The man at the cashier today was non-verbal and indifferent to the point of anti-customer service. Not the...first time. After 5 visits to Rye Ridge, my family is going back to Gold's.More

I was really looking forward to the same quality and service that they provide in Stamford but not even close! the service is an abomination and it seems the staff really couldn't care less... The food is passable but the enjoyment of eating there is...negated by the customer service. We have gone to dinner there several times for a quick bite to eat and the place is empty. I now understand why. If I was the owner I would oversee this location and rescue it before it goes out of business. I'm very sorry to see this not thrive.More
