Fantastic food! The menu was highly creative, and each aspect was delicious. We started with a cheese course (3 cheeses to share), then a number of apps, and we each had our own entree. I would definitely return.

Came here last night for a celebration dinner! The good: Service - Attentive, thoughtful, and considerate. Our waitress answered any and all of our questions. She was thoughtful and funny and made sure that we knew that we could stay and enjoy our meal for as long as we wanted. Our water glasses were kept full and dirty plates were quickly replaced by clean ones. Food - Oh my burrata. This is definitely something I would order again, the star of the dish was the dashi gelee (things I never thought I would say). I would also recommend the mushrooms, which were delicious. Word of warning, do not fill up on the bread. You will be tempted because the butter is that good, but it will ruin your appetite the rest of the night. There are a few reasons I didn't LOVE ripple: 1) The bacon relish on the fried green tomatoes is over powering and tomatoes were a little undercooked. It felt more baked than fried. 2) The deviled eggs were really good, but they weren't amazing. 3) The noise. Wow, this place gets incredibly loud. Will definitely come back and try the cheese and charceuterie and a few more cocktails!

Ripple would get another star if its menu wasn't a tad overpriced. The small charcuterie platter was a highlight, but that and 2 drinks was already $50 before we even sat down to dinner and just don't feel like we got what we paid for. The mains come out tasty enough, and the sides complemented them well, so food quality and presentation earned at least 4 stars. I know they make money on the apps and drinks--but in this case its just a bit too much. I might go back here--but I would certainly order a bit wiser next time.

You know a place is good when you get there on a Tuesday night and it's packed. Ripple definitely did not disappoint. Awesome food, great service, great selection of wines (that are priced amazingly), and the cheese selection our waitress recommended was solid. Awesome spot, I highly recommend - make sure you get reservations.

My wife took me here last night for date night. She wanted a new trendy place in a new neighborhood in DC. The fact that this restaurant is in Cleveland Park is a huge plus and their menu is very unique. I am a bit more picky so if an entree had anything more interesting in it like marrow or oysters, I don't play. They have a GREAT wine/beer menu and an entire section for hard ciders. The food was sub par

I love this place. Every time it has had great food, a good cocktail menu, and a delicious selection of local cheese and cured meats. The menu is seasonal, so there is always something new on the menu. Also, for brunch they have killer biscuits.

Can't really say, "go here". We were in the bar area and were one of one two or three small tables at 530 on a weekday. The good: service; bartender; quick seating. The okay: service, cleanup, and plate delivery. Lots and lots of missteps: wrong food to start; hair in the main dish. They comped us the first misstep which was nice; everything else (extra milk, extra cookie) was extra on the bill. Finally, the clincher is the food. Have you ever done Bikram? You are familiar then with the idea of a certain ultra thin ham sandwich. These are the grilled cheese bar sandwiches at Ripple: really, only the tiniest amount of cheese (could barely taste it in my sandwich); tissue-paper thin meat and only one tiny layer of it. Food makes or breaks a restaurant for me. I won't return.
