Had an excellent time. Server could have been more attentive. We had to ask for water multiple times. Not a huge deal but that would be the only "less than ideal" feedback. We did intend to get dessert but she indicated the wait might be 20 minutes or more...seemed a bit odd.

Under the current COVID Situation, the restaurant has done extremely well. The service was real good and non intrusive. The food was outstanding and we will definitely return and recommend. The only blemish was that they ran out of bread half way through dinner service.

This was the best food we have had in some time. We will definitely be back. Very nice waiter, too.
We especially loved the carpaccio. The mussels and clam appetizer was also so flavorful.

We go here all the time for anniversaries and the servers are amazing. They remember you and make the experience so much better. Plus it’s a BYO so that always helps with the price

The outdoor setup was very nice and separation of tables was good. The food was very good and this has been consistent. This is a dependable “go to” restaurant in Ridgewood.

Cafe 37 is a good place for Friday dinner. The food was good , we order an appetizer, sashimi tuna for myself and bransino for my husband. The service was very slow and our appetizer arrived 30 min later.

We had a nice first experience at Cafe 37. We sat in the corner by the door (by choice - we were offered a few tables to choose from), so we were a bit removed from the other patrons and had a sense of privacy. The food was very good and served hot. I like BYOBs as long as I'm aware of the policy, and Cafe 37 called to confirm our reservation and remind us of that. We will go back.

We loved discovering this restaurant. The food was excellent. I had one major complaint though-we were seated right next to the door and it was freezing cold! I resented this because if we were a party of four or more, those tables were towards the interior of the restaurant and although I would definitely return because the food was so good, I will always make sure we are seated away from the door.
