We ate here last week, using a Groupon that offered (for four people): 2 appetizers (up to $12/each), 4 entrees (up to $39/each), 4 desserts (up to $8/each) and 2 bottles of house wine (claimed a $24/each value) - for $125. It was a special occasion and nice to bring our family together. The service was fine - everyone from... More

We had a coupon for this restaurant and decided to visit yesterday. Incredible food. We had an appetizer (bbq steak and shrimp over pineapple), rack of lamb (for me), sirloin steak (for husband), wine and desserts. The food was fabulous. I asked the waiter what he would suggest between a few items. He was the one who made the suggestions.... More

Keeping this as short and sweet as possible while painting a true picture...The Assembly looks, feels, smells and runs like a 1980's restaurant (and I am being kind here), which is probably about the last time the management of this place spent a dime to fix it up. The restrooms have holes in the wall and the Men's Room urinal... More

We had been to the Assembly in the past and thought it was a nice restaurant. We chose it for our Christmas Eve dinner and were shocked when we were directed to a small area with tables (no tablecloths) off the bar. There were 2 couples there in very casual clothes eating sushi. We ordered drinks and were so disappointed... More

OK, Englewood Cliffs New Jersey is probably not the "foodie" capital of United States or even of New Jersey, but ranking Assembly Steak House at #8 in the area is probably about right. I went to a family brunch at this restaurant recently. When we arrived shortly after noon, the restaurant was almost empty- a first indication that someone knew... More

Lots of food, retrograde buffet, but lox and some salads very good. Service excellent, pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon but leave the discerning palate home.

Great restaurant ambiance and layout but that won't fill your belly. Dirty floors, poor service and the upstairs room is in need of desperate renovation. The food is nothing to brag about, Ok at best if you like mediocrity and you will leave hungry. They are an area "NOT" spot. It also gets very "pub" like on the weekends, unless... More

Had a party here. They had only fans going,no air. Our guests were sweating. The buffet table was almost empty. After the manager arrived food seemed to appear again. Our waiter was horrible, if not for the help of another waiter the service would have been like a bad dream. Every guest complained about the food and the heat,after all... More

We went there for Thanksgiving dinner with some friends. The restaurant was about half full. My girlfriend remarked how dirty the floor and steps to the second floor were. We were a party of six with a reservation. They seated us and it took 40 minutes to get water, It was an hour and twenty minutes before we received our... More

The Assembly is a great restaurant. Jack the owner is a master chef and a congenial host. I have never had a bad lunch or dinner there. I would recommend it to anyone.
