    What a great new addition to the plethora of fantastic restaurants in Ridgewood! I believe this restaurant has carved out a unique niche which is underserved in the area: hearty, clean eating options. I ordered take out for dinner and chose the shrimp capellini and the Chilean sea bass. Both were delectable and the seasonings were well balanced and highlighted the food's natural essence. Furthermore, the service was high quality and quite pleasant. The cook made a point to say that he cooks everything from scratch, and I could taste the freshness in every bite! I will definitely return here for a full sit down meal in the near future!

    I loved this place! I was hungry but didn't want anything fried or with sauce. I ordered a black
    bean burger with the sweet potatoe fries. It hit the spot and the nice loking waiter even
    gave my dog a bowl of water while we sat outside under the fruit trees on the sidewalk.
    I couldn't believe they were real!.I will go back when I am on the block to see what else will hit the spot.

    I have been here three times in the last two weeks. Once for breakfast and twice for dinner. I love the gluten free french toast with bananas. The Branzino is delicious, as well as the Crab Tower. The shrimp scampi with zucchini pasta is really flavorful. I might ask for grilled shrimp next time. The ingredients are so fresh. Produce is organic. Meat is grass-fed & free range. Fish is wild-caught.

    My husband I heard about this place via word of mouth. We decided to try it out this morning for brunch. I had a delicious gf/df black bean burger on a gf bun with sweet potato fries. My husband had a quinoa salad with grilled chicken. We both raved over our food! The staff was attentive and the chef asked us how everything turned out. I cannot say enough about this place... A safe haven for people like me who have food sensitivities.

    I had the most amazing dining experience at TSF yesterday! My friend and I were in town from CT getting ready for NYFW. I mentioned to the girls over at Pinico Salon that I was gluten-intolerant, and they recommended TSF. Although it was in between lunch and dinner hours, and they were technically closed, the waiter and chef welcomed us in and seated us down for a meal. Chef Garbanzo absolutely customized our meals and talked with us throughout lunch.

    We had a Groupon here and we're really glad we did! Since I am gluten intolerant, any place that offers gluten free pastas, pizza crusts, and French fries is worth a shot. Well, this place was great! Had the crab tower appetizer; wonderful! My GF pasta with white clam sauce was amazing! Huge fresh clams in a delicious. My husband's short ribs on GF pappardelle was also delish.

    Very excited about this much needed new addition to downtown Ridgewood! Very healthy menu options but still delicious options for your not so health focused meal companion (my husband thoroughly enjoyed a grass fed beef burger with goat cheese and sautéed onions) I loved my veggie chili and zucchini pasta!

    A friend and I met for brunch here. Many menu options to choose from. I ended up going with the gluten free french toast. It was excellent! My friend ordered the breakfast wrap special. She enjoyed her meal choice too. The portions were plenty. I brought the rest home and had it for breakfast the next morning. We had water to drink. We also ordered a salad smoothie and it was very tasty.

    Great meal at new healthy restaurant in Ridgewood , The Sensible Fork . Gluten Free is their specialty . Butternut squash soup and seafood ceviche salad. So fresh and delicious! The roasted avocado was great.

    This place is amazing. We went for my friend's birthday dinner. The staff was friendly and accommodating and very attentive. My friend has a dairy allergy so maggie, our server, made sure all items she inquired about were dairy free. The chef was able to substitute non dairy items for her so she didn't feel left out. For example, when they brought out the garlic bread, hr made a separate plate just for her with no butter on it. Everything was delicious and the portions were plentiful. We had the shrimp dumplings, crab tower, filet mignon, chicken picatta, linguine with clams, gluten free chocolate molten cake and two kinds of ice cream. The filet was melt in your mouth good...so tender. They sweet potato puree was amazing. The gluten free cake felt like you were cheating on a diet, it was so rich. Best of all, the ice cream was dairy free and tasted like regular ice cream. My friend was finally able to have ice cream, which she truly enjoys. I am not a big healthy eater, but the entire meal felt like I was cheating completely and was so full of flavor. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant and the people who work there. I am excited to go back. Thanks for a great night!!

    My girlfriends and I had lunch today and loved it! We had a yummy Mediterranean salad with quinoa and grilled chicken while we waited for our cauliflower crust pizza. Worth the wait! So delicious! We sampled their homemade coconut "bacon" which was so flavorful. Can't wait or go back. Breakfast and dinner menu had lots of options.

    Had dinner here with a friend last night and was very impressed. The ingredients are of the best quality and there were many things on the menu I could order in spite of my dietary limitations (I'm on a grain free, sugar free diet). I had a hard time choosing something from the menu but settled on the Half Roasted Chicken. They were great about substituting mashed sweet potatoes for the regular mashed potatoes. My friend ordered the sweet potato encrusted salmon, which I tasted. Both entrees were delicious. We finished with a bowl of ice cream, which we shared, and it was wonderful! The best part about the ice cream, aside of it's tasting so great, is that it's dairy, egg, and sugar free... so it would work for vegans and people with common allergies.

    I saw another review on here that said there were items on the menu that weren't available. So my first question was if there was anything not available. Everything was, and the server we had was great. She was kind and attentive to our needs.

    Overall, I have nothing negative to say about this place... definitely will be back soon!

    We had a delicious meal here for dinner recently. My husband and I met another couple there, and everyone was able to find something on the menu to suit their various food preferences and allergies. Two of us avoid gluten and dairy, one is vegan, three of us try to eat healthy, and one eats standard American diet with animal products and dislikes health food.


    It is difficult to find one restaurant to suit all of these different tastes at one table, and we were thrilled to find one. This is a new restaurant, and it may be ironing out some new business kinks based on some reviews below, but our experience was positive and we will definitely go back again.
