This is about the food and service. I was here in March and the food was delicious I have the red bean burger and fries with there sorbet as dessert my son had the chicken wings I'm a vegetarian and they actually made me want to lick the sauce at least. I actually asked for a Side of the barbque sauce and there homemade ketchup was awesome. The service was great not sure of my waitress name but she was amazing I think I saw her last night also. Well I went again last night and the food was ok. Service was bad he barely paid attention to us there were two other tables and he was very active with them maybe they looked like they would tip better being there skin complexion was lighter then mine who knows but I am a generous tipper although he did take back the vegan shepherds pie that was not that great and took it off the bill the fries were very salty and the ketchup tasted like tomato paste and was super thick (disgusting)We had the pasta which was ok I could have made it at home and my sons wings looked ok he enjoyed them had there sorbet which was very good. I was disappointed coming from Palm Springs area I like to go out of town to enjoy good food. Sadly I will not be back due to my service and poor quality of food. Maybe I just went on a bad night 😐

This is my "every occasion" bar. It's casual enough for a simple beer with a friend, and fancy enough for a nice date. It's got a charm that's unique to the North Park area and I recommend it often.

I really enjoyed the garden seating, with fresh cherry tomatoes growing over head. The staff aren't pushy and know the menu well, including their premium beer menu. I recommend the shepherd's pie which to me is tastefully gamey.

It's hard to compete with all of the good-beer-bars so close by. Ritual has carved out a nice niche. They have a cozy pub feel. This is great and it allows them to not have to worry about the beer arms race going on in uptown (although, they do hold their own quite well... especially with the bottles).

The beer is excellent of course. The best park is the food. My wife had a stew made with Meatmen sausage. It was deep, dark and delicious. I have a burger and it was a first class meal.

My wife, I and friends have had drinks and eaten at Ritual many times. The pros are: the location (centrally located, a frequent stop on pub crawls) nice heated outdoor seating, quaint atmosphere, awesome selection of beer on tap (though it doesn't rival Toronado right across the street and is more expensive), quality food (made with local organic ingredients). My wife and I started with the shrimp scampi as an appetizer. The broth is amazing. Not one taste overpowers another, a wonderful balance of butter, salt, wine, and seasoning. I would recommend splurge the extra buck and getting extra bread for dunking. For our main entree we split a Niman Ranch Meatloaf with blue cheese mashed potatoes and bacon sauteed green beans with was more than enough food for two. Best meatloaf I've ever had! Tender, and not too salty. Most meatloaf of my youth I remember as hamburger meat with coarsely chopped onions or breadcrumb filler. I paired it with a tulip of Santa's Little Helper. Prices are on the higher side of average but on par with near by restaurants of this caliber (Urban Solace, The Linkery, etc.) I only wished their hours weren't so odd -- they don't open until dinner hour and they seem to always close early.

Fresh local and awesome. All sauces are made from scratch and are amazing. The pickles are made in hour and are the bomb. The Cooks cute too!

I adore Ritual Tavern. For the longest time we never went inside - we were frightened off by their signs outside advertising local sourced seafood, organic vegtables and artisanal cheeses as these phases usually translate into "our food is overpriced." (I'm looking at you, Stone World Bistro!) This is NOT the case at Ritual, here it means the food is superb. We finally went inside for the first time one Drinkabout Wednesday night to have a beer before catching the first bus of the evening. I was very impressed with their tap selection - it is small (11 taps and sometimes a cask) but always has well balanced choices including San Diego breweries both large and small, other microbrews, and an occasional import. They also have an excellent bottle list that supports their changing tap list very well. Our bar stops later lead us to try the food, and the food at Ritual is amazing. We have now worked our way through about half of the dinner menu and a few of their specials and there has not been one meal that did not "wow" me or my friends. Portions are generous and filling. The brunch menu also looks great, although the only item we have tried so far is the fried chicken and waffle - which was probably the best thing I have ever eaten for lunch. All of their condiments are made in house and are worth buying a bottle to take home. Desserts are outstanding as well, particularly the Brioche Bread Pudding and the Coffee Stout Creme Brulee. Service here is top notch, the staff is always friendly, helpful and attentive but do not hover over you incessantly. Along with their participation in Drinkabout they also have specials for "30th on 30th" every month. Last night it was pork cheek street tacos (2 for $5) and $2 half pours of Stone More Brown Than Black IPA, Stone Cali-Belgique IPA, and Green Flash West Coast IPA. They also have daily happy hour from 4:30-6:30, $1 off draught beer, and great paremsean garlic fries for $4. Cask beer, when available, is $4 a pint. All in all the Ritual Tavern is a great value for the money and has quickly become my new favorite restaurant.
