The Ripe Tomato is my favorite restaurant. I love the food and most especially the brunch offered every Sunday. This is the restaurant I always bring my visitors from out-of-town, as I know it will never disappoint.

I have been coming to the Ripe Tomato for what seems like all of my life! Whether it's track season or I'm just in town to see family I'm stopping in. However, the best kept secret may be the Sunday brunch! My personal favorite and must be experienced!

Friendly atmosphere, historic structure with many nooks and crannies. I do love the Cedar Plank Salmon, but always nix the rice and ask for more veggies. They are very accommodating. He loves the traditional spaghetti and sausage. I love the sauce, but not a fan of the sausage due to the texture--but I understand that is a personal taste issue.... More

Conveniently located on Route 9 a few miles south of Saratoga Springs, The Ripe Tomato - advertising Italian standards and American comfort in a cozy, wood-paneled space full of old-fashioned charm -- offered us a warm, cozy atmosphere, excellent service and a pleasing light lunch on a cold, rainy day in mid-January. My wife enjoyed a shrimp and ravioli dish... More

My waitresses on both nights were prompt and accommodated my requests with a smile and precision. The restaurant itself is a great family oriented environment. I was greated by the... More

A great, family friendly restaurant with a cozy atmosphere, Red and white table clothes and mini white lights create a sweet place to dine. Entrees are nice portions and, if not as hungry, half portions of some entrees are a great option. The yankee pot roast and pollo rres modos are a big hits with our family and the oreo... More

There were five of us that visited the Ripe Tomato on 12/9/16. I got the chicken marsala and the chicken was unbelievably rubbery. The sauce was good, however, the chicken was terrible. In fact, I brought most of it home because in case I got sick I'd have the chicken to be tested. I didn't get sick and the following... More
