Park West Tavern Ratings and Reviews
A wonderful dinner on Saturday night. The two hostess were so friendly upon arrival. Seated promptly. Servers all terrific and friendly. Fish dinners were outstanding. The only complaint it was cold where we were sitting- by the windows in front. Otherwise a terrific place for a casual dinner.
While we lived the ambience it was too noisy to easily converse. Our main course we're fair. The apps were yummy as was the dessert. Our server was not particularly attentive or knowledgeable. Do love the water on the table. Would come to the bar but probably not dinner
Good restaurant setting separate from a lively bar area. Comfortable seating, spacing ok
Split an app of filet mignon spring rolls which was good. Had a main of hanger steak salad, delicious
Excellent cocktails and very reasonable and good wine list
Service was excellent, not to fast or slow
Seated promptly per res time
Myself and 3 other friends met for dinner at PWT. When we walked in - the place looked promising with decent décor and what seemed like a lively bar scene.
We ordered a couple of appetizers - the spring-rolls and the calamari. The spring-rolls were OK, but nothing to write home about. The calamari tasted fishy and we had to send it back.
For entrees we ordered the pasta w Bolognese sauce, a hanger steak, a burger and the short ribs.
The pasta was good - but I found the pork based sauce a little bland. The hanger steak turned out to be a philly cheese steak and not a steak. The philly cheese steak was rather small and was average at best. In addition, it was ordered with fries but arrived with a salad. When we asked for a replacement it arrived 10 minutes late. The burger looked good and was pretty good and would have been the only menu item I would consider reordering. Finally the short ribs were not fall off the bone soft and dry and we had to ask for more sauce.
We decided to pass on dessert.
All in all - many mishaps with average and below fare and OK service.
Considering the many other options in Ridgewood - we won't be back.
Anytime someone asks me what is your favorite food in Ridgewood, I usually always say Park West Taven. If you are looking for a great burger or steak this is the place to go - but if you need a Gastro Pub meal this too is the place to go. Or if you are simply looking for a decent piece of fish - again this is the place to go. I come here for the Wine and Beer list, the service and the atmosphere - toss in valet parking in a neighborhood difficult to park and you have a GEM. I would even recommend this location to Private Parties. I have had two 50 PLus Parties in their loft upstairs. On this occasion, we had Burgers and Fish and everything was perfect
Our Ridgewood friend recommended Park West for a small family reunion brunch on a Saturday. We had a lovely gathering and the restaurant staff provided us excellent service and a table in a quieter spot in the restaurant which made conversation easy and audible. Food was delicious as well. And the hostess graciously accommodated us by taking numerous photos of the group with a variety of phones! Thanks so much to Park West for your kindness to us.

We do not go to the PWT often, because everything is so good! It's not just a place that you'll just get a little something. The cocktails are delish, so you'll have to have one of those. Then you flip the menu over and you know everything is going to be so good you will want to try more than an entree, and you'll be happy you did, but it ends up being $. Always a lovely experience - the staff are all great, and the restaurant is nicely decorated. It makes our short list of places that we know is going to be great every time.
Very loud even thought we said it was a date night and the restaurant was half empty. They cleared tables away to make room for live music while we were still eating and made us very uncomfortable with the staff standing over us so we left. Will not recommend.
Overall, it was good but I think it is a bit pricey. I ordered the steakhouse burger which is $20 and I ordered it medium. It came out almost well done so if you are charging $20 for a burger then make sure it's cooked to order. My wife enjoyed the seafood special which was grouper and we enjoyed the dessert. Service was very good.
Really excellent food and service. The oysters were a great start. Had a 9 year old with us, who is on the cusp of adult/kid menu. She ordered the hangar steak and mashed potatoes for $8 off the kids menu, and it was like and adult meal! The ahi tuna salad was amazing, not what I expected. Salmon delicious also. Service friendly and helpful.
