Ridgewood has many fine restaurants and Cafe 37 is one of the best. We tried it for the first time yesterday and were extremely pleased. It is a relatively small space so definitely call for reservations. It is a byob. On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, they offer a $46 4 course pre-fixe menu in addition to their regular menu. After reviewing both, we decided on the pre-fixe because it was a great deal and had a wide variety of options. Appetizers were the shrimp tempura and the PEI mussels and clams. Both were prepared perfectly. We then chose the kale salad and the Fall mixed greens salad. Both were dressed perfectly and had many delicious ingredients. Entrees were the filet mignon and the pan roasted venison. These were excellent. Homemade desserts of bananas foster and golden puffs with coconut ice cream finished the meal. Cafe 37 is a cozy restaurant with very nice wait staff. I highly recommend Cafe 37 for a great dining adventure.

Overall, a delightful dining experience. From the warm and welcoming staff to the amuse-bouche appetite opener to the ambience and of course, the food---all lovely and completely enjoyable. The Sunday to Thursday Prix Fixe four-course menu is a tasting delight. Plenty of choices for each course and all four diners were more than satisfied with their choices. Of particular note in the first course, the goat cheese raviolis and the exotic mushroom truffle risotto. All 3 second course salads sound wonderful, with the salad that included strawberries and goat cheese being a personal favorite. 3rd course entrees were well-received with special kudos for the tender grass-fed filet mignon. Finish with a nice selection from the desserts--you can't go wrong with the warm fallen chocolate cake with the drizzle of caramel sauce. BYOB. Evening parking in the bank lot across the street (after bank hours). Thanks to the excellent wait staff who complement the food with their quality service.

We've been going to Cafe 37 since it opened, having first stumbled in one weekday evening having no idea about the restaurant's ambitions. We have probably been there several dozen times over the years, and have enjoyed the chef's excellent food and been delighted with the service. We've also introduced the place to quite a few friends, who have shared our enthusiasm.

Used to really like this place.

It is small so I guess they jacked their prices up.

Not going back again.

Nice atmosphere but very quiet. Only 2 other tables were occupied on the Thursday we were there in December . Food was good but service was over attentive ,due to it not being busy .
