Suncrest is so lucky to have this place in walking distance. They don’t do a lot but what they do is exceptional. From their Pizzas to their Burger you can’t go wrong. It never hurts to take a drive to a place where the mountain and city views are amazing.

Adorable family or romantic place. Ambiance was breath-taking ! Food on the other hand was lack-luster. Not only was there not a lot of flavors but over-cooked and bland over all. Ridge Burger is read like it's amazing item but when the menu says certified angus beef, it's missing the label that certified it and the taste that matches that brand. We had to bus our own tables as the waitress would drop off items and not pick up anything on the table. So overall I gave this a 3 because if the manager could step up the cooks and service people this would be over the top amazing !!!!

Proposed to my fiance this New Year's Eve at the Ridge. We were already engaged, but I wanted to propose again in a more memorable and public way. The manager and staff were so friendly and accommodating! I dropped off flowers shortly after opening at 5pm. I arrived with my fiance at 8:30pm for our reservation. The place wasn't too busy, and the wonderful Mikael Lewis provided live music. After some truly delicious appetizers, drinks, and pizza, they delivered the flowers at 9pm as planned. Mikael grabbed everyone's attention, and I made my dream proposal. Couldn't have been more happy with the ambiance and outcome of the night. Thank you Ridge Cafe for such a special memory! We'll be back soon :)

Went here due to high rating on OpenTable. The food was good, but nothing special. The pizzas we ordered had a lot of char on them from the wood fired oven, but the crust wasn't cooked through. My son's hot Italian sandwich was good, but again nothing special. The price point of most menu items are way overpriced for what you get. With drinks and 3 entrees, we spent $100, which for this kind of place is really over the top. We will likely not go to this restaurant again. The ambience was festive and they had a flamenco guitarist playing which was pleasant. This is more like a lunch cafe place, not really a dinner place per se. Not a good value. Also our waitress was slow and did not bring correctly ordered items to table twice. Not a great experience.

Couldn't hear a thing on Wednesday (live music), neither could our waitress who brought a drink we didn't ask for. Cheese pizza is 'special' in that it has no sauce, making it a real pricey cheesy bread like from little Ceasars. I feel like one can assume there's sauce on a 'pizza' unless told otherwise, but it seems the other way around. GF crust tasted like cardboard, it was burned black all around the edges and was also lukewarm.

Hi Sean. We do live music every wednesday and sunday so it will get a bit noisy in there on those days. The "cheese" pizza you're referring to is actually our "quattro" pizza traditionally made. It does have sauce, the olive oil, we denote that on the menu. Gluten free crust is gluten free crust, I've never had a good one. The dough that we make from scratch every day is the way to go. It was charred because we cook in a 750 degree oven, not a conveyor belt like little caesars.

What a gem at the top of the mountain pass. The gluten free pizza crust was the best my wife has ever had. I enjoyed the shrimp scampi, delicious. And we topped it off with delicious GF chocolate mousse cake. We will go back.

Not much comes with the meal. I ordered lasagna, and that’s all I got. No salad, no bread. One little square of lasagna for $20. It was good, but value felt off.

The guitarist (acoustic Spanish version) was fantastic! The setting is beautiful.

The food and service was great as usual but I’m not sure the live music works in this venue. We were seated next to the performers and ended up having a very hard time conversing with each other. Maybe just a guitarist and no vocals or amps.

Our server was excellent. I’m sorry I don’t have her name with me right now - I know she said she drives around 30 minutes or miles to get to work and that was ok because she loves working at ridge cafe.
The sav blanc was excellent - ottos. The lager beer was very good.
The live music was also very good.
We had bacon wrapped dates and meatballs for appetizers - both very good. The dates seemed a little cold and might have been better if they came out sizzling… if possible. The meatballs were excellent.
We had the blanco pizza and it was a perfect size to share - the crust was amazing!
We’d definitely go back regularly but we live in PA and it’ll be a while before we return.

The service was good- what you’d expect with what you pay at this type of restaurant.
The food was very disappointing. It was clear that half of my plate (and my wife’s plate) was reheated maybe in a microwave. The potatoes looked crispy but had a similar consistency to leather. They were cold and tasted like they had been sitting out all morning. The side of bacon also looked normal but was cold. We both commented on how fast we received our food after ordering. That usually is a good thing but just added to our suspicion that our meal wasn’t made-to-order.

My husband and I ate at Ridge Cafe for my birthday dinner. The service and ambience were good! But to say the food was a huge disappointment is an understatement. The bread seemed stale and was very oily and hard. We split a Caesar salad which we ordered with no anchovy, when we got it, it had anchovy which wasn't that big of a deal we just took it off, but the salad seemed like it was left over from the day before, watery and flavorless. Also we weren't informed there would be a $2 charge to split it or we would have just shared the same plate. Both of our entrees, the Penne Bolognese and Meatball Sandwich were very bland and flavorless. We were going to order dessert but didn't want to risk it. I do not recommend.
