Food was excellent and the service was very attentive. The beef carpachio and goat cheese ravioli were delicious, as was the shrimp tempura. Scallops and paella were delicious, and the banana foster bread pudding dessert was a special treat. Will definitely come back, and the only setback was the timing. We had plans after dinner and it took 2 hours from start to finish because there was a mix up with our order. It was busy though and they were very accommodating with the error. The price was also high for BYOB, but it was worth it. Happy to have found a new spot to enjoy.

Delicious! Small restaurant perfect for date night. BYOB and there is a wine store across from the restaurant. The truffle risotto, Asian ribs, filet were all out of this world.

I reserved last minute and Cafe 37 was able to accommodate us outside. We got cold outside and they moved us inside. Very attentive and great service. The food was also great

We dined outdoors as it was not too cold. Lighting was low but the effect was pleasing. The food was excellent and the wait time between courses was reasonable given that the restaurant was busy. A bit on the expensive end of the scale (plus a significant “convenient fee” tacked on) but still a good value given the quality of the food and service.

We had all appetizers and sides. The food was all excellent. The Kale Salad was outstanding. Also had the Burrata special. 👍👍

It was Saturday night so it was busy but our servers were very accommodating on top of things. Would definitely recommend.

Ribs fell right off the bone, scallops with warm dipping sauce was a worthwhile new experience, truffle risotto on point, halibut and brozino must be amazing because they were sold out by 8:30.

We enjoyed another lovely dinner, this time outside. Fish dishes were perfectly cooked and executed. Meals took longer than usual than usual, which we expected during these times of staff shortages. Wait staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Cafe 37 is reliably one of our favorite restaurants in Ridgewood.

One of the best Ridgewood has to offer. The new outdoor/tent set up is arguably the best in the village. The food was superb as always. A little concerned that the wait staff wasn't wearing masks, but the air circulation and the table distances alleviated that a bit. Still, "abundance of caution" suggests that masks will be expected for some time.
