“Top dollar for blue collar town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

M.K is the NYC experience in the town of Ridgefield Park.Top of the line food ,service and modern decor.Nice outdoor seating in a bamboo lined fence.the details of this restaurant has all been meet.Early bird special well done with paella,mussels and drinks to match.My only problem is its a little too expensive .Not saying its not worth it ,but I would go more often if it had some more affordable menu choices.

“Excellent experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

My husband and I had an excellent dinner at MK Valencia. The menu was really nice- eclectic and varied. We had a hard time deciding on appetizers and main courses. We ended up sharing zucchini chips and tuna tartare, and we were not disappointed. For main courses, we chose 2 specials; risotto with short ribs, and porcini ravioli with a pesto sauce. Again, delicious. The waiter was attentive, and the chef came out to talk to us. The wine list had many reasonable choices. We were too full to order dessert. Overall, it's worth a visit.

“New Favorite Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

MK Valencia's is a new upscale restaurant in Ridgefield Park, NJ. The place is beautiful with a nice bar in front, and stylish furnishings everywhere. Makes you feel right at home. But it's the food and service that make the place really special. Whether seafood, fowl, or meat, everything is great. And the servers are attentive. Run, don't walk!

“Has great potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

I have been to MK 4 times since it opened. The pros are the beautiful decor, outdoor dining, tasty drinks, and good service. The food is just "good" in my opinion. They tend to run out of things quickly (raw bar, veal, and mixers at the bar.) The huge down fall is a poor wine list and house wines by CK Mondavi. This place is way too promising not to have a better list. The servers keep telling me that it is in the works , but I will believe it when I see it. I suggest they stop the kitchy happy hours and cater to the customer who would like tasting menus and wine pairings........they have great potential here !

“Who would have thought”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

When I made reservations I thought: Ridgefield Park, NJ, it's probably ok. Surprise! The menu is so wellrounded that there is something for the most particular. I had Korean ribs as appetizer.Main Veal Marsala. The presentation made your mouth water. The meal satisfied it. My husband had a steak. Boring? No. Better than most steak restaurants. The desserts were unique. You must try it--even once.
