Upon the recommendations of some friends, we decided to give this place a try.
One of the considerations in opting to try The Ridge was that they listed certain brands of beer on their menu that is not served in very many restaurants ... beers of which I am particularly fond of. We were told they haven't had these beers in quite awhile because they are hard to get. I know for a fact that that statement was not true. STRIKE ONE --- don't lie to me.
The food was mediocre at best. The appetizer we ordered was so fatty that it was almost inedible. I ordered the rib-eye and while it was seasoned well and cooked to my exact specification, the meat was very chewy --- even for a rib-eye.
I know that I probably shouldn't rate a place on just one experience but my instincts say that this place is not not my "cup of tea". The atmosphere is pretty stuffy -- as was our server. The food is not that great of quality and was over-priced for the quality that we received.
I may try it one more time but it is going to take some convincing to get me back ...
