Had a great date night. Small restaurant was a bit noisy, mainly due to a large party taking about about a quarter of the restaurant. Staff was very attentive. Food was outstanding. Make a reservation.
Best restaurant in Ridgewood, Service and Food excellent
PLACE IS TERRIFIC
This is my favorite local restaurant, I have been here many times and it is always tasty friendly and an overall great experience.
It is kind of upscale, so it is a great place for special occasion.
It was wonderful to get together with extended family for an outstanding dinner at Cafe 37. Chef Cesar Sotomayor and his staff went above and beyond to make our dinner selections outstanding.
I've had several great meals here.
Delicious food. Beautiful presentation. Varied menu. Wait service attentive. Great dining experience!
New Years Eve Menu - delicious! Great & friendly service.
What a delicious New Year's Eve meal! The complimentary glass of champagne was much appreciated. The froi gras was the best I've ever had!!!
Already made another reservation so that should tell you everything you need to know!
I came to Cafe 37 due to the reviews, but it was a big fiasco. The entree, octopus was decent accompany by spinach and potatoes. The venison, was cook right with pink center soft and juicy while the side dish was same as the entree spinach and potatoes and a little sauce that was overwhelming and concentrate for the venison which itself is a strong flavor. The other person who dinning with me had the Tuna Tartare Bruschetta with a brioche underneath a little on the rancid flavor, overcook zucchini and and too much sauce mayonnaise like on it. The lamb chops were the worse note since we request medium rare and they were burned. there was two and a half left on the plate out of the 3 it comes. When we let the waitress know, she replied, that is the way they seared. I commented back that seared meat does not need to be burned. And she raised her voice saying is a seared technique. And asked if I want to take the rest home. I said, the reason they are still in the plate is just what I commented to you, No I do not want to take burned Lamb chops home. Thank you. The place was cold, many of the customers had their coats on it, therefore the food got cold pretty quickly while still eating. Very disappointed!!!
Really liked this place. I thought the service was fantastic. It’s not a place I could dine at every week but I’d start going here once a month and be very happy.
This was a great dining experience. I am a repeat customer and the food and service were excellent. I normally sit outside-this was my first time sitting inside. Inside was intimate and provided the perfect backdrop for great conversation. We had the roux fix menu which was great value for money and actually runs a number of hours almost everyday so I’ll be coming back another day to do that menu choice again. The staff including the chef were friendly informative and warm. Great Sunday evening.
Excellent prefix meal – four course meal. Everything was delicious.
Haven't been there in awhile and I don't know why...always amazing and will plan on going there more often!
As always,a lovely way to spend an evening. Service is perfect.
We went to Cafe 37 for my birthday. We had the price fixe menu, which is the same food as their regular menu. Our meal was delicious! I went to work the next day telling all my coworkers that they have to go there! I’m pretty particular about my wine glasses when I’m m bringing really good wine and they have nice glasses if that’s what is important to you.
What a gem! We were looking for a place for lunch with friends in Ridgewood & came across Cafe 37 on Open Table. So we took a chance. We were greeted warmly in this small intimate restaurant. I was pleased to see white linen tablecloths because we were meeting up with good friends for a special lunch. Service was perfect. Food was delectable. Presentation exquisite. Limited but appetizing lunch menu offered enough options to please any palate. Cafe 37 is byob which kept our moderate bill down. Can’t wait to go again and try dinner menu. My new favorite place for so many reasons.
The food was delicious, presentation was beautiful. Service was pleasant and efficient. Would definitely return. It was a Birthday celebration!
This place is a treasure. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent and friendly
It was a birthday dinner for me with my Mother and brother. Each of us had different meals and they were all delicious. The waiter was attentive and processional. Been there 5+ times and it has always been a great experience.
Everything we ordered was delicious. Our server was professional and attentive.
Such a special place! Upon reading the reviews I came here midweek to try it out.So pleased with my dining experience.! I ate from the prix fix menu. So worth it! Every course was outstanding! The kale salad was to die for. An extra perk is that the restaurant is BYOB!!!!!
The service was impeccable - a great place
For food, ambiance, and conversation.
Food was amazing!!!!
Seated in the sun waiter knew I was bothered by it. If you want people to feel comfortable. Move them to a different table. Instead you chose my party to sit by the window so people outside would see in. YOU put money over the comfort of the guests that arrive to eat. Too concerned with appearance. I will NEVER go again to eat there.
I highly recommend Cafe 37. The food was amazing. A great restaurant to definitely try.
Food was amazing. A little too expensive though.
This was my first time at Cafe 37. All high marks across the board. Would definitely come back when I'm in the Ridgewood area.
Cafe 37 never disappoints! The presentation is fabulous and the food superb!
Nicely tucked away from some of the Ridgewood bustle. Food is very good, prices are competitive for what is delivered. Service is thorough and pleasant. Layout makes the dining room seem intimate and cozy.
Everything was excellent from the service to the food.
We ordered from fixed price menu. Found food quality exceptional , as was the presentation and service .
We liked the four courses having tuna and beef as main plate but felt they were slightly undersized .
Noting the service excellent I suggest server scrape the table cloth of crumbs after the main dish .
Keep the high standard of fine dinning we will be returning .
Small BYOB restuarant in Ridgewood with modern American cuisine. I dined on a crowded Saturday night. There was a small wait for the entrees to come out but not bad consdering the place was full.
The food was very good . Everything was freshly prepared and seaoned properly. My only complaint was the pricing . I ordered the evening special of lamb chops. The dish consisted of four small thin chops over garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. I was only able to get three bites out of each chop before it was finished. I was surprised at the $ 48 charge for the dish when the bill came. My suggestion is that if you do dine here be sure to ask the prices of the specials before you order.
We did the prix fixe 4 course menu. Half portions of the regular menu....perfect meal at a great price. Everything was superb. The venison was perfect!
We love this restaurant and the food ad go quite often. Felix is outstanding. Can’t wait to go back.
Love this place. Two nights in a row! Great staff. Beautiful food.
Revisiting this restaurant is always a delight... food is fresh and prepared with care, service is excellent gracious, friendly, professional and always helpful. Weekend specials are always A+++. My favorite place to go for special occasions and a great meal...
