“One of Fresno's Best”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

The Ripe Tomato is a Fresno land mark located in Fig Garden Village. The printed menu is good, but the specials recited by the servers are unbelievable and overwhelming. Signature dishes include corn chowder, any of their seafood items and a delicious chantily.
Definitely a great place for a special lunch or dinner.

“No better, in fact, worse”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

This is my third time to this place and it is going downhill. The menu is huge and my party of four ordered several dishes. The sauces tasted old and one dish had a hair in it. The service was good and we weren't charged for the entree, but the restaurant feels dated and sad.

“Great Lunch.”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the patio.
We heard a lot about this gem and were not disappointed.
The inside was closed for a private function so we choose
to stay outside which is shady and quiet.
We were greeted and seated quickly and decided on the daily
specials. Salmon grilled to perfection and sole with a caper sauce.
Wonderful French bread and butter were served alongside.
The menu is extensive and wonderful. We will be back soon.

“Amazing food! You need to try it!”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 via mobile

So quiet tonight which is a shame. Good was so amazing this place should be packed! Salmon special with mango salsa was superb. Potatoes, carrots and Brussels sprouts on side were amazing. I never knew I liked Brussel sprouts! Bread good too. A bit too much dressing on salad so order that on side. Great all around dinner.
