    The bread was promised twice and didn’t come until our appetizers were on the table. Too hot! Scallops and red snapper both over cooked. Goat cheese ravioli was excellent in scent and taste. Chocolate cake w caramel and whipped mascarpone was delicious.

    Cafe 37 is a hidden gem in Ridgewood NJ. The food was fantastic, especially the seafood and fish. The 4 course Prix Fix menu is a great deal with lots of options. The service is polite with a touch of “homeyness”. I will go back.

    food was very good. We did fixed price. Portions about half the normal serving size. This was a disappointment as $54 pp price is not a bargain. Otherwise presentation beautiful and food very good.

    Eating at Cafe 37, a BYOB restaurant in Ridgewood, is always delicious, even if one's table is squeezed in to accommodate the Saturday crowd. My husband is now used to scanning the QR code on the table to access the menu. And our waiter did not hesitate to tell us of the evening's specials. The complementary rolls served with a dish of whipped butter were warm and tasty. We both opted for the special crab cake appetizer served with a mixed salad in a tasty vinaigrette along with a spoonful of spicy tomato salsa. Everything was fresh and satisfying. As we learned when the bill arrived, the charge was a somewhat surprising $28, quite a bit higher than the appetizers on the regular menu. And we both agreed that it was not as good as other crab cakes we've had (at another Ridgewood restaurant), but was still delicious. My husband opted for the fettuccini frutti di mare and I ordered the ahi tuna. Both dishes were enjoyed and remain favorites. All dishes were artfully arranged. The sauces that accompanied each dish gave nuance to the main feature on the plate. At times the noise level was a bit much but fortunately not persistent. I recommend a visit, but leave time to find a parking space in busy Ridgewood.

    Well prepared food - perfectly cooked but seasoned too lightly for the veggie meal. Price range was very high and not quite matched with the quality in my opinion. Very good service and pleasant ambiance but relatively loud.

    Everything came out so slowly. The servers were unprofessional and didn’t know what they were doing. The steak came out so bad, and the price was way too pricy for the quality we’ve got. We asked to cook medium but it came out as the photo attached.

    Took my wife out to dinner. This place is not worth it. Very nice atmosphere but poor quality food. The paella was fishy. The filet mignon was okay. The restaurant comped us an appetizer in response to our complaint. We will not be returning.

    Lovely place to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. An added touch was that we'd noted on the OpenTable reservation that it was our anniversary, and our desserts arrived with candles. Definitely would recommend.

    The food is relatively good, but unfortunately the service is very slow. This is the second time we dined at Cafe 37 and probably the last due to how slow they are in serving the meal. Both times it took from seating to being served dinner an hour and a half. And it wasn’t at all crowded either. From order to serving dinner was well over an hour. Whereas I appreciate a well timed meal, this is a little much. It feels like they are understaffed in the kitchen.

    Kale salad and butternut were excellent starters. With so many options I once again got the chicken and it did not disappoint! Every time I go I say I am going to try something else but it is so hard because it is just that good! Staff is welcoming and service is on point. Wouldn’t change a thing!

    Felix was the absolute best server! First time we were there with my Pug and all the staff loved her. Food was amazing. Pricey but it delivered. We had the lamb special and appetizers shrimp tempura and goat cheese ravioli. Perfect and the outside setting was lovely.
