My spouse and I took my mother in law to brunch Sunday to celebrate her birthday.There were many delicious choices. The fruit was very fresh and tasty. The omelets were well executed. My spouse loved the pork dish. The staff were friendly.

We had the Yankee Pot Roast with,Carrots & Mashed Potatoes and Pollo Tres Modes with Iced Tea. We finished w/Carrot Cake and Toll House Pie. Very delicious and large portions w/enough take-home for another meal. It's our second review and it was better than before. Immediate seating and great service. Easy access and ample parking right on NY Rte 9.... More

Great food, great service, great atmosphere and reasonably priced what more could you ask for? Visited this restaurant with friends during the Saratoga racing season. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety on the menu, and can't say enough about the service and quality of food, just outstanding! By the way, be sure to save room for dessert, the apple...

Delightful environment, friendly staff and good food. Family friendly causal with reasonable prices and delicious Salmon Burger! Trip with my grandaughter, we both found things we liked. Hers was the shrimp linguine.

We visit here every year and the food has always been good. My only complaint is that it could be cleaner. The windows need a good washing. The windowsills, fans and woodwork need a good dusting.

Ripe Tomato's greatest appeal is the lay-out and decor: a spacious, rambling interior with quirky artwork and endless alcoves in which to enjoy a meal. There is also a lovely outdoor seating area. The menu focuses on Italian food. Servings are large, service is fast and friendly. The Shrimp and Scallop Bisque, a house specialty, is delicious but very heavy... More

We stopped here before a concert at SPAC. The menu offered a variety of Italian cuisine, from the standards to more regional fare. I had a Haddock Pomodoro and my wife had the Seafood FraDiavolo. Both were well prepared and the portions were generous. I almost forgot, the fantastic bread comes with a plate of roasted garlic cloves to spread.... More

Food was delish and came very fast and was nice and hot. All of us were super happy with your meals. Even the take out food we got to bring back to our hotel was great.

This is a good old-fashioned Italian-American joint. No passing fancies on the menu but good-quality familiar favorites. Italian mostly, but with forays into French/Belgian (mussels) and all-American (pot roast, etc.). The best thing that a restaurant can have is a good cook -- and this place seems to employ very good cooks. Portions are ample, pastas are not overcooked, the... More

Treated my sister here after winning the Daily Double at Saratoga Racetrack. But you won't need a bundle of cash to have a fine meal. We both enjoyed a tasty Caesar salad and a fabulous shrimp, scallops, artichoke & tomato in white wine sauce over spaghetti. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. There's a good wine list, delicious dessert... More
