Took one hour for our dinner to come out. Table next to ours that was seated 20 minutes after us got their food before us. When the food came out mine was cold, my wife and daughters was luke warm. Asked to see the manager. Waited 15 minutes and he never came over so we left. PS, we paid 13.95... More

We had a Cousin's Reunion at The Ripe Tomatoe on Saturday. The place is so inviting and quaint. Like a real roadside cafe. It is located on 9N on the way to Saratoga. So easy to get to. The food and drinks were excellent. We will certainly return next time we are in the area.

My friend and I were staying in the Malta area and read the great reviews and decided to eat here. The food was delicious and the place was really quaint (the type of place I miss living in NYC) . The cedar planked salmon and toll house cookie pie were delicious! We told our server where we were staying in... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Ripe Tomato. The atmosphere is warm and cozy and the food was delicious. We sat at the bar as there was a short wait for a table and we prefer the interaction at the bar. The bartender was friendly and helpful. We shared a bowl of the specialty Scallop and Shrimp...

This restaurant exceeded our expectations. It had great ambiance and amiable, efficient service. The food was delicious and the portions were generous, so we brought plenty home. We particularly liked the fish and eggplant parmigiana with pasta. The restaurant was almost full even on Tuesday evening which speaks to its popularity.

We ate here on a Sunday night in August and were seated right away. My husband ordered Pork Schnitzel and I ordered Chicken Picatta and both dishes were excellent. The portions were more than we could eat. The service was friendly. The atmosphere was pleasant except that I was seated on a bench next to a large motor that was... More

This is a great place to eat near SPAC or the Race track. We usually go there for lunch. My husband loves the beef & Swiss sandwich served with horseradish dip & au jus! They also make a yummy warm apple crisp! Nicely decorated in Italian theme! Worth the visit!

Not far from the shores of Saratoga Lake is a corner with four eating establishments...we chose to try Ripe Tomato. Reception and service were great. So many choices on the menu. I had spaghetti and my husband had chicken marsala. We were both very happy with our choices. Everything was so fresh and clean and homemade. The bread was so... More

I give Ripe tomato 3 stars only because I find the food to be inconsistent. Their appetizers are always on point, but so far there are only a few meals that I would highly recommend. My absolute favorite is the Pork Schnitzel (not sure if i spelled that right). It is always delicious and I love the homemade applesauce. This... More

I have eaten here on my travels into town and I have never been disappointed. The food and the staff are very nice. I have brought clients who live in the area to the restaurant and they have called me back to tell me they are thankful if nothing else that I have exposed them to this great restaurant. They...
