Lovely upscale, romantic French restaurant at the end of Ridgewood Ave. with a small municipal parking lot adjacent to it. The food quality is exceptional having been prepared by Chef/ Owner, Michael Latour who is a cut above the average chef. This is a BYO restaurant decorated primarily in white shades.

Rocca was hose not for a friends' night out because we actually wanted to have a conversation and unlike some other local Italian restaurants, this isn't too noisy. It's a pleasant dining room, with tables far enough apart for privacy. The menu is interesting. I ordered the cornmeal crusted calamari and hot peppers with a ramekin of hot tomato sauce as a starter it was very nice. My friend had the unusual fired artichoke and olive salad which she really enjoyed. Other salads were ordered as well. For a main course, I ordered the daily special, which was Chicken Marsala, served with mushrooms in the sauce, and mashed potato. The chicken was tender and the potato was good, however the sauce was extremely salty. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I had hoped.
The four of us shared two desserts; the ricotta fritters with raspberry sauce and the mini cannoli. They were both very good but I would say that the ricotta fritters were unexpectedly exceptional.
This restaurant is a BYO, so we brought a few bottles of wine which were graciously opened for us and left to enjoy in a variety of stemware. This always helps the budget, so our meal ended up costing $169 including tip, for four diners. We had a very nice evening. By 9:30pm though. The restaurant was completely empty of customers besides our table. The staff began to set tables for the next day and eventually made it clear that they wanted to close up. We had been there for 2 1/2 hours so I can't say that we were rushed out, but as we were enjoying our evening so much and it wasn't very late, I would have preferred not to have to leave before we wanted to.

Mediterraneo was created out of a desire to explore and share the unique, seasonal, healthy opportunities of the Mediterranean Cuisine, from the shores of Southern Europe to the coast of North Africa. At Mediterraneo, we carefully and without compromise choose each ingredient for its authenticity, quality, and freshness. We invite you to join us and discover for yourself why in 201 Magazine, Best of Bergen, Mediterraneo has been voted the "Best Mediterranean Restaurant in Bergen County" several years in a row. Whether it's a business lunch, a friends get together, a romantic dinner for two, or a private party, we will make sure to offer you a wonderful dining experience. We recommend the delicious, authentic Spanish tapas, the tender Moroccan lamb tagine with dried fruits and our fresh fish, daily imported from the Mediterranean area.
We've been here before and were sorely disappointed on our most recent visit. The service was very slow (to the point where it seemed they were short staffed) and the food was average at best. The paella was not good, the char was substandard and the lamb shank lacked flavor. Perhaps the tapas are the way to go here but for these prices I will be going elsewhere. #epicrestaurantfail

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. The decor is beautiful with rustic tables and creme colored chairs. The place is bright and clean. The service was excellent. The food was ok. I felt it lacked flavoring. The regular hummus bowl was bland, maybe some garlic would have given it a kick. The mushroom and caramelized onion hummus bowl was better. My salad was good but nothing that screamed wow. Everybody on my table raved about the falafel and eggplant chips. I did not try them because they were not Gluten free. I wish they had Gluten free bread because the sandwiches looked good. Will probably try it again.

New American Cuisines. Fine Dinning.
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 the restaurant full. The trout almondine was superb, as was our friends' boeuf bourguignone. The profiterroles and excellent espresso were a perfect finish. A special place for that special dinner out.

Previously a Thai restaurant...has been opened about 3 weeks...EXCELLENT FOOD and SERVICE
We visited this establishment last night, it was our first time. As any place in Ridgewood parking can be a challenge, there's after hours parking in the bank across the street. As you enter you're warmly greeted by a team member, the restaurant is small...MoreMichael, thank you for your kind review! We are happy you enjoyed the food and ambiance. We'll be happy to serve you again! See you soon.

There website says they don't take reservations, but you can call ahead and put your name on the waiting list. One problem, they don't answer their phone. We called three times on our way there and no answer. When we arrived they said it would be a 15-20 minute wait. We were seated in 20 minutes as they promised. The clientele was on the younger side and the music was quite loud (I guess I'm too old) which was unnecessary for this type of restaurant. Service was friendly and attentive. We ordered the Trevigiana salad and the Campagnola pizza. The salad was fine, but a bit expensive for mostly greens. The pizza was topped with zucchini, eggplant, and peppers. The pizza was good, but the small amount of topping was absurd. You would have trouble finding it with a microscope. Maybe that's the chi-chi way to make "gourmet" pizza, or maybe we got a skimpy chef that day. My 3* for the food is not based on quality which was good, but on quantity of toppings and value.

This is top notch for French toast, steel oats and more! Best BLT & sandwiches around. Sit in a cozy atmosphere with unique decor and lots of family fun. Delicious. Great service. Top menu choices. Once in a lifetime experience. Open for dinner, too, but less menu choices. Bravo Raymond’s!!!!!

We were greated at the door and shown to our table immediately . The waitress gave us our menus and asked if we had been there before. We said no and she then proceeded to explain the meaning of Tapas. She was trying to be informative, but she didn't ask if we ever dined at a Tapas restaurant, which we had many times. She suggested we order three Tapas each. We decided to order three for both of us and we could decide to order more later if we were still hungry. The food was excellent! We ordered the trio of humus, the shrimp with garlic and the paella. They were very anxious to remove the garlic sauce from the shrimp, infact , three times. We were enjoying dipping our bread.
