My husband and I love the food and drinks here. Being of Caribbean descent it gives us a taste of home. Only drawback is that the service is super slow. But when you finally get the food, it is more than worth the wait.

Local looking place with a small and excellent menu. Plantain stuffed with cod fish , fantastic. Jerk chicken, authentic and very filling! Rastapasta good but needs to be spicer. Excellent drinks and friendly service (albeit slow!!)

Authentic Jamaican kitchen. Food was delicious and we loved the ambiance. There are no signs out front so be on the look out. Like a not-so-secret local spot but really worth the visit. Reasonably priced menu. My only minor quibble is the very friendly staff is painfully, painfully slow. Also took a long time at the bar to order a... More

This restaurant may not present the best ambience but the food here is amazing and definitely worth every penny. The rum punch is also excellent. I have tried many dishes from the menu and I have not been disappointed.

Ripe is not the easiest place to find but when you find it: Delicious I have been to Ripe several time for business and to unwind. The food is outstanding particularly the Big A Jerk Steak! The steak is huge and delicious as good as some much higher priced NYC steakhouses. The service can be hit and miss sometimes the... More

It looks like a hole in the wall. When you enter, you immediately feel like you are in Jamaica. The food is great. It's small. There is a place to eat outside as well as inside. Great drinks.

I've been to Ripe quite a few times but for some reason I've never reviewed it! This is our girls night out spot and we always have a blast when we come. The food is excellent especially the Curry Goat and Raasta Pasta. Service can be sketchy but the food and drinks make up for of by far. They also... More

This was my first visit to Ripe, but it certainly won't be my last! The jerk chicken was SOOoooo delicious, and, served with authentic rice and peas and a salad, was quite filling. I can't wait to go back to sample other dishes!!

I've been going here for a while but what tends to happen with a lot of Jamaican restaurants is they get popular.... Then the food declines and the service sucks! Customer service is very imperative to returning customers. I have them more than one try and it was always something. And the servers just didn't seem friendly or helpful. So... More
