Can't say enough about this quaint classy establishment. Let's begin with the service. Kareem was our guide through our dinning experience. He was informative, polite and knowledgeable of the menu, as matter of fact it seemed like he was preparing the meals. The dishes were well presented, the colors and textures were perfectly matched. Not only were the meals outrageously... More

We had a great night out celebrating friends' 50th birthday. We were 4 couples and six of us choose the 5 course menu. The food was delicious. The dishes were served in a very decorative way. All was very tasty. The staff was efficient and friendly. I am from Europe so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself in an... More

Three of us enjoyed a really good business lunch at the Village Green Restaurant. The building has housed a restaurant under different owners for many years -- my late wife and I became very close to one set of owners 25 years ago, and there were at least two other owners since those days. The current owners have been there... More

We enjoy delicious high quality meals and service every time we go here, one of the best restaurants in the Ridgewood area by far! The ambience is also very warm and inviting. We've even hosted server private parties here over the years, never disappoints!

We were there Saturday night and the food was just delicious I had the pork and my husband had the home made pasta both dinners were great. Then for desert we just had a cappuccino which was very hot and good because that just tops off the meal.

Rare to find a chef who tries so hard to come up with seasonal menus and interesting selections. Have never been disappointed. We love the prix-fixe, a wonderful value for the selection,amount and quality of the food, but the a la carte is also wonderful. We returned recently for Ridgewood Restaurant week, a prix-fixe that was simply fantastic, even with... More

We had a great meal here tonight. The food was awesome but unfortunately the evening was spoiled slightly by an obnoxiously loud woman and her friend on the other side of the dining room! I'm not sure how people can be so rude as to discuss medical problems and procedures at the top of their voices while people are eating!... More
