I work in the city and live outside of it. Part of my daily commute takes me through Englewood Cliffs. Cliff's appealed to me because it looked classy on the outside and was a place to get a nice steak without having to go to the heart of Manhattan, Beyond that, its appeal fell short. My wife and I made... More

Terrific restaurant experience. My first visit. A special work related, luncheon occasion celebrating a coworkers 10th anniversary. The restaurant is tucked away next to its 'sister" restaurant, Cafe Italiano, which is also very good, with ample parking in the back. The dining room is bright, a little on the formal side with white table cloths, folded cloth napkins and nice... More

The Cliffs Steakhouse split off Cafe Italiano some nine years ago and my wife and I have enjoyed the new restaurant, located just north of Cafe Italiano on route 9W, ever since. The excellent food, the friendly staff, the honest drinks and excellent wines make this place stand out. We have enjoyed several large family gatherings there. I find it... More

Classic steakhouse in urban setting. Common ownership with adjacent Café Italiano Italian restaurant with similar quality food & service. Shares a parking lot with ample parking for both restaurants.

What a nice find in Bergen County. Food was great and the staff was fantastic. If you want a great steak and don't care about being "seen,"this is the place. Can't wait to go back. From what I was told by other customers, the veal parm is better than the steaks. Next time.

Restaurant was very flexible as we had to change our reservation a few times. If you need a place for a business lunch or dinner, this is definitely an option, as they allowed us to sit and talk for a while, even after dinner. Service was good. Prices are typical of "big name" NYC steakhouses but is less stuffy than... More

You can't go wrong just to give it a try. The waiters are very warm, friendly and accommodating. My bone-in filet was off-the-chain good. I found it strange that they didn't have chives for the baked potato, and didn't offer a fully loaded potato...just sour cream and butter. Very cozy atmosphere...I imagine it's wonderful to have dinner there as a... More

Impeccable service with a smile and to top it all off, fabulous cuisine. Great steaks and a wonderful house made steak sauce. We were impressed from appetizer to their amazing apple strudel for dessert. Very classic decor and a warm ambiance. This is a must visit!

We picked Cliffs Steakhouse as a place to have dinner between New York and Philadelphia. (Of course it's just outside New York, but we got a late start.) The food was great, and reasonably priced, but what was outstanding was the friendly environment and service. The restaurant is in a cozy building in an unassuming neighborhood a few minutes from...
