Great food but a very poor value

If you want to pay for a valet you don't need and overpriced meals this is your place. If you feel compelled to go stop and at the bar. At least you will not get soaked too much.

HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! My husband and I loved River Palm until our last meal there. We also gave them two opportunities to win us back but now forget it. That time has passed. I was going to email them one last time but their site doesn't seem to have an email address so here I am. Both my husband and... More

The restaurant looks and feels like a fine steak restaurant. Plan ahead because they book early. The food is excellent; my favorite is the lamb chops and of course the steaks are perfectly prepared to your doneness specifications. All side dishes are extra and the steaks range in price from $30-$45.

I Love The River Palm. There is not a bad thing on the entire menu. The food is fresh and prepared wonderfully. It is served beautifully. I go here frequently. They only serve top quality food and go out of their way to purchase everything they serve!

Great steaks and great ambiance. This is one of my favorite places in NJ. Never disappointed. Not cheap, but worth it.

If celebrating a special event, this is the place to go, as it has superb food and service. Pricy, yes, but worth it if for a special occasion. The beef is fantastic, tender and juicy.

We were here last night and the service and food were great. The décor was not so good/ Kind of old school but im not there for the décor. I went for the food and service which both were great. I had fillet mignon and my husband had the shell steak and he loved it. They also had this home... More

Never had a bad meal there. Typical high end steak house, I like to sit at a table in the lounge/bar area as it has more atmosphere and ambiance then the main dining area. BUT be ready to pay $75 per person. $$$$

We've always loved this place ... Until now.. The past two times we have been there ... Late Tuesday afternoons, the bartender Joanie has been less than pleasant... Almost like she is doing us a favor by asking us for drink order and never asking us if we'd like a menu..it took us a few minutes to get past our... More
