Thus is one of my favorite restaurants. However it closed Saturday night. That was the special occasion. One last meal.😥
What a sad thought that this neighborhood gem is gone. We went to Ripple the night before it closed to share a meal with our children and our favorite waitress Jenny. To say they went out on a high would be an understatement. Our meal was perfect, The hamachi appetizer as well as the burrata salad were fresh and light. The gnocchi was rich and meaty and so flavorful. The duck, steak and halibut main courses we had were all cooked perfectly. The wine list has been amazing for some time and we capped off the night with a bottle of 2007 Shafer HIllside select which earned its 100 point rating in spades. I am so sad this place has closed.
This was my first & last visit to Ripple. We had dinner on Friday, & it closed its doors for good on Saturday. What a shame & what a waist.
So so sad to see Ripple go!!!!! This was a great eatery with wonderful innovative dishes! So so sad that the neighborhood and DC could not support it!
We were so saddened by the news that Ripple is closing on June 24, which is why we went this week for a last visit. It is one of the best restaurants in DC. It is a crying shame that people had not patronized it enough to come to this.
So sorry Ripple is closing ! We had a lot of good meals there .
This was my second visit to Ripple, and unfortunately it was a disappointment. Although the salad was excellent, the cheeses were less impressive, and the Amish whole chicken was a disaster. Service was slow and inattentive, and the restaurant (not in the bar area) was unbelievably loud, making conversation at our four-top difficult. Not worth the price ($300 for four people, 4 glasses of wine) but even if it were more reasonably priced, I would not recommend, and I will not return.
Incredible menu incredible food taste and display. i am sad you are closing.
This was a farewell dinner. We will miss Ripple; it is closing after June 24.
Having said that, and despite being a reasonably affluent customer who lives within easy walking distance, I never went to Ripple except to splurge. Its chef and staff are very talented, but prices are high for very small portions. You will leave hungry unless you order at least 3 courses.
Sad to lose this neighborhood gem!
Ripple is one of the finest restaurants in the area. Interesting decor and fabulous food and cocktails.
Because the restaurant is closing this month, there's little good to be gained from a very positive review. Ripple was a very good restaurant and its loss is a big one for the neighborhood.
It is too bad that the restaurant will close in July.
My husband and I decided to check Ripple out before they close on the 24th and we are SO glad we did. The tasting menu was well worth it (so delicious!) and since they're closing down, all wine by the bottle over $140 is half off!! We had some amazing food, wonderful wine, and just great service and experience overall. If you have a chance to get out there before they close the doors, I HIGHLY recommend it! So sad to see this place go!!
I'm really unhappy to learn that Ripple is closing. The food has been truly outstanding -- this is not just a good neighborhood restaurant but one of the best in the city,
When we heard Ripple was closing for good we immediately booked a table to say "farewell" to this wonderful restaurant. We loved everything, but the halibut was a tad too salty and overcooked. Wonderful people there. We'll miss it.
One of the members of our group wanted to try this property out based on a WP restaurant review recently. While the service was stellar, the facility was not spotless. We sat at the bar before dinner and the bar had dried food on the counter-top that had not been cleaned in some time. It was pretty disgusting.
The bartender was efficient, but not overly chatty. Our dinner server was great as was her assistant. We had the beef special for two and, while good, it was not the best quality of meat and two pieces had lots of gristle. I did not want to "make a scene" so I said nothing. The spinach should have been creamed instead of the way it was cooked.
Good experience, but would not go back a second time.
I have been going to Ripple since it opened. It has always been fantastic. I am so sad to hear that it is closing. I guess you need a lot of foot traffic.
I really like having found this neighborhood gem. Not cheap but everything is really well done. Flavorful, colorful, delicious ingredients. Foodie's delight!
