  • Exciting!
    I had a great evening at Ripple the other week with friends. Great service, drinks and atmosphere – will be back again!

  • I love the food at Ripple, but MY GOD is it ever expensive for the portions you get! I know so many people who went once and had the same experience as I did, and also never went back.

    • the one and only time I went we ordered a pasta dish and when it came out there were 6 pieces of pasta on the plate. we questioned the waitress if this was normal and she just kind of shrugged it off. terrible portions and bad service

  • if my words did glow, with the gold of sunshine, and my tunes were played, on a harp unstrung . . . . would you hear my voice, come through the music? Would you hold it near, as it were your own?

  • Great for cleveland park! The grilled cheese bar is already amazing…
