Came here for a Father's Day brunch with my husband and 6 year old. It was full of energy and full of life. The food was amazing and so was the service. I would highly recommend this place!

The brisket omlette was a thing of beauty matched only by the smoothness of the cocktails. Great addition to the area restaurant and cocktail scene. Can't wait to go back!

Our server was informative and friendly. Ripp fries are amazing. Ricotta donuts are just impossibly fluffy, fried transportation for Nutella. The grilled Caesar salad with chicken was SO good. Delish Whisky Sour.

Excellent meal. Rip fries and crab Louis salad were both delicious and very filling! Also had the burger and Bronzino, both were amazing. My avocado,marguerita was delicious but the skinny chai was the best!
Erica our server was very attentive and super sweet. Can’t say enough great things about this new gem in our neighborhood ! We will be back!

My date and I did the entire experience appetizers, main course, dessert and drinks. Service was excellent, food was very good beer choice was good but limited (it’s a Whiskey Bar) overall an excellent place for a date. What we had:
Crispy Pork Ribs - outstanding crispy but juicy- really a nice dish
Mushroom Burratta toast - a special - good - but I preferred the ribs
Beef Stroganoff- great - flavors are nicely balanced - meat is served on top of the noodles - I made the rookie mistake of getting the meat done medium- i should have opted for medium rare.
Crab Louie Salad - this is a nice mix of salad, fresh crab, Amish picked eggs, avocado, red pepper and cucumber- great blend

As noted - our server was very attentive and provided excellent input on what to order.

Overall Great place - we ended the night with the Brookie - brownie, chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and a shot of Eagle Rare..
Go you’ll have fun.

Best new restaurant we have been to in quite a while. Started out with a great wine/beer/cocktail list and some bar snacks. Then ordered a bunch of the shared plates and passed them around -- highlights were the pork ribs and the grilled octopus. Lots of nice little touches with all of the dishes, and don't miss ordering the rolls (either parker or pretzel rolls -- don't remember exactly) with the truffle butter -- fantastic! And make sure to leave room for desert -- we had one of each one on the menu and they were all great!

As a senior citizen I found the place somewhat funky new age. In fact, the food is described as new American. My friend and I had a good time. Our server, Cornelia, was attentive and adorable. Paul, the manager, came over and explained the concept of the restaurant. The wedge salad was delicious as were the flatbreads.
As a new restaurant in ardmore it’s very busy and popular. Time will tell if it can continue to please.

Staff was super friendly and helpful with the menu. And the ambience is great in the bar section Ambience is just ok in back room. The noise from other tables made it hard to hold a conversation -- felt like we were in a total add-on room that didn't feel like a restaurant. Food had a lot of oil poured all over it, literally every dish. Overall it left me still longing for a high quality restaurant experience in the Main Line.

A local Lower Merion restaurant that feels like a good Center Center place, including very good tasting food and very well managed by two former Starr Restaurant guys.

Disaster. Once we were seated at our table, it took ten minutes before a waiter asked us if we wanted water or would like to order a drink. One of our two appetizers was forgotten/omitted. An entrée that involved meat was asked to be cooked "well done" and it came out completely pink. After asking our waiter for the check, it took him FIFTEEN minutes to return with the check. This establishment is so focused on their bar, that food and dining patrons have become an afterthought. Might be a place to go for drinks, but if you want to eat, this place was bad news.

My 3rd time here already. As hard as it was to not order the same things we've enjoyed before (parker house rolls! wings! brussel sprouts!!), we were glad we branched out. The fries, loaded with cheese, jalapenos, and brisket were ridiculously good- so was the simple/not so simple wedge salad. I got adventurous and ordered the avocado margarita- delicious and not at all weird. Can't wait to work through the rest of the menu. One tip: don't order right away, because your food might come too quickly and make too short a night of it.

They are new. It is clear there are kinks to iron out. The music is really loud. The roll on my fellow diner was stale. The fish I ordered was delicious but the beurre blanc was tasteless. This is my second try here. I think some more spice would ge good. Also, I am mostly a vegetarian and there are no entrees without meat or fish. Cocktails are delicious though!

not a great value -- drinks are $11-15. and they push the "shared plates" which were small (don't remember the price) Tables are close together and although we had a good spot, it felt crowded andd had to squeeze to get out. This is THE hot spot for main liners so we checked it out. not sure if I would return

We were a bit disappointed. Cocktail service was slow. We ordered the popcorn, brussel sprouts, a flatbread, and 2 burgers. The brussel sprouts were delicious!! There were many burnt kernels in the popcorn app and it was a small bowl for the price. Flatbread was tasty but not very hot. The burgers were average.
Doubtful we'll go again, unfortunately.

Our first visit to this new place in Ardmore. Street Corn was amazing - where do they find such good cob corn in May? Roasted artichokes were delicious and the pork ribs were really nice. Whiskey sours were especially tasty - highly recommended. Our service seemed a bit new on the job, but was really trying. Food was served within about 15 minutes of ordering. We liked it and we will be back!

Overall our dinner was good but a bit pricey fir some of the items! French fries with brisket and sauces were amazing! Burger and pork chop dinners were excellent. Fish and chips were very good but portion was small for $19...only one piece of fish... more appetizer portion the dinner! Chocolate cookie with ice cream was amazing! Ice cream scoop needs to be bigger than a golf ball! Our server was wonderful! Attentive,helpful and pleasant!

We were asked to push our res back and then were seated right at the kitchen door in the back of the restaurant. Waited a good 15 minutes for service. Food came before drinks, was dark and really did not find the place very welcoming. Server walked by our table multiple times and took care of all the other tables around us before focusing on us. We were clearly her last table of the night. Food was good however, octopus especially.

My first time and it was delicious. Got the Po Boy sandwich loaded with a special dressing pickles scallions and red cabbage. Delicious fries on the side. But we ordered the Ripp fries too. Wow. Tiny bits of flavorful brisket with littles pieces of veggies like tomatoe and more scallions and a lite delicious dressing. Disappointed only one hour from dinner so we couldn't order off of the dinner menu. But we'll be back! Great waitress!

Fantastic, interesting food! We loved everything we ordered, several dishes shared among three people. Our cocktails were also excellent, and our waiter Jack was extremely helpful and informative. Will definitely go back. The only factor that will determine how often is the noise level. The music was quite loud and the sound muffling quite low, even though we were in the back room. It was oFten difficult to hear one another. But as a food experience in a lively venue, it was fantastic.

This was our first dining event at Ripplewood and it won't be our last. Food was great as was the server. The Pretzel Rolls are a good snack to get things going. The Branzino was perfectly cooked and no bones. I loved the Wedge Salad; interesting presentation. The wine in the can is different and worth a try. You get a full 2 1/2 servings from one can and the wine was what you would encounter in a bottle. The management staff was very friendly and attentive as soon as we walked in the door. Try to get a table on the second floor for a quiet dinner and get there early as by the time we left the 1st floor was packed. We wish them continued success.
