The Stable Restaurant - Ridgewood, NJ

Has anyone gone to the new Stable Restaurant in Ridgewood, NJ? I would like as much detail as possible. Thank you.

  1. Here is The Record's review from February:

    I visited a few months ago and found it to be good, but not great. It was crowded and loud, although you can call it festive. The rodizio was good, but not perfect. Individual portions that were slid off skewers tended to be on the dry side; whole pieces that were sliced were uneven, with some char outside yet pink spots inside. That's good for rib-eye. For pork, not so much.

    But it's still rodizio, and there isn't a lot in Bergen County (the other I know of is in Hackensack). The owner is a pleasant guy who has been a fixture in Ridgewood dining for years, and he'll do everything he can to make your comfortable..

    A few caveats:

    -- Reservations generally aren't accepted. The restaurant says that's because they can't control when parties leave since it's all-you-can-eat.
    -- The entryway is small, so if your party is three or more, you'll feel like you're in the way while waiting for a table.
    -- You WILL smell like smoke when you leave, like some Korean barbecue joints.
    -- It's a BYO. Super Cellars is a block away, though.
