Disappointed meal

My husband, son & I have been going to this restaurant for a couple of years. I was very disappointed at my last visit. Not only my husband's mussels were tough but the dragon roll I ordered, was terrible!!! The shrimp was overdone, and it tasted like rubber. Stay away from this dish, will never... read more

Had a very nice Valentine's Dinner with friends. Atmosphere is cozy and romantic. Seating by fireplace is recommended. Extensive wine list. Seafood appetizers are a must. Lump Crab Meat , Shrimp cocktail , Oysters all excellent. Main course Steak , Lobster or Sea Bass all great! Sides are separate and feed about 2 1/2 persons. A little loud and expect... More

We come here often when we (or our dining compatriots) are in the mood for a classic steakhouse that is local. As some other reviewers have noted, if you are not familiar with this location it feels a bit odd to get to since the entrance is basically on an on-ramp to Rte. 17 South in Mahwah. There is valet...

Highly recommend a mouth watering steak dinner at the River Palm Terrace. It was cooked to perfection. Our service was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was very welcoming at this large upscale restaurant. There's a full service bar, fabulous menu, valet parking, and superb seating anywhere the restaurant offers. They do honor reservations, not call ahead seating. The Staff was simply... More

The River Palm will never let you down. Great appetizers and steaks and of course drinks are good as well. Service was great, we sat in the bar ( not as noisy as dining rooms). Highly reccomend

If you're going to spend $$$$ on a good steak dinner the atmosphere and steaks for two are excellent...and don't forget the creamed spinach and a bottle of red.

Nice restaurant to look at, attentive wait staff and some food was good. I thought the medium steaks were over cooked but portion sizes were ample

Cold seafood platter for two, steak salad, citrus crabmeat salad...I've eaten here many times, lunch and dinner. Yeah, I like it. Always great service, also.

I go here on special occasions. Most dinners are a la carte so the bill comes out to be more than I'd like. The service is good and they do honor reservations. If we ask for a quiet table away from the crowd, they are most accommodating.

Enjoyed an excellent steak and service at the River Palm Terrace. Only problem was that the Restaurant is hard to find from your GPS on an exit ramp. Went past it 3 times on the the main Rd & could not fine it.
