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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Food was delicious. The wait staff I needed to be aware that they should fill up the water glasses without having to hunt them down. They should also be aware of who ordered what so when they bring the dishes to the table they know where to place it.

The food is as good as it gets. Expertly prepared and presented. Service staff is professional and friendly but not overboard on either. Very comfortable setting. Far from empty but easy to have a conversation at normal volume, a rarity at many places.

The food was very good as usual, but the service was off. We had an 8:30 reservation and for some reason was were not served our main course until after 10 pm. At least when I expressed my concern about the delay we were offered free deserts. I've been to cafe 37 numerous times. This was the only time it was not a wonderful experience.

We arrived at 6 for a 6 o'clock reservation. We seated promptly and we were offered water. We brought wine and the server open it up for us. They brought over some very nice rolls and butter. For appetizers my friend and I had the lobster and crab parfait that was delicious. Others had wedge salad and steak tartar. Both were enjoyed. For dinner I had chicken, our wives had lamb chops and my friend had filet. All were quite tasty. We also had desserts. I had a version of bananas Foster, others had berries, chocolate cake and ice cream. I thoroughly enjoyed my dinning experience. I would have like to have a later a later reservation but they only have a 6 or 8:30 seating. We stayed until 9:30 and we weren't rushed. Will go back again.

Everything was fine. I think portions are too small, I ordered shrimp tempura and got two big shrimps. I eat very little, but even for me it is too small.
Other than this no complains; nice atmosphere; good service

We were lucky enough to have an outdoor table, which is always nice, as it's usually really cold inside in the summer, with the AC blasting.

Despite the fact that we were outside, our service was outstanding - we were never neglected! The waitstaff was extremely kind and knowledgeable. The food was delicious - a wonderful evening overall!
