Big restaurant, Good food. A Satisifying Dinner.

I was surprised by how large the restaurant was. Service was efficient and good. The red meats looked very good, even though I had a fish entrée. The fish was good. I liked the salad bowl for the table prior to entrees. A good experience overall.

We have been coming here since they opened. We are never disappointed as the food always comes out the way we like it and we like our steak medium rare. The servers have been there for years and George, the Maitre'd is always ready to please you. I recommend asking for a seat in the bar area for a more... More

Although this place can be a bit pricey you always get a great meal. We went the week before Christmas with another couple. We ordered the cold seafood tower and then 4 entrees. Everything was delicious. We also ordered some martinis and mixed drinks. Everything was great, absolutely no complaints. So glad this place is so close to our home.... More

I tried to justify our recent trip to River Palm. It was Christmas eve and they were busy. The bread was that of a bad sandwich shop. The salad was thrown on a plate. The steak was overcooked and portions small. The price, however, was the same! So all that for a high price...what a deal! They were packed and... More

Met old friends we had not seen for a number of years. The staff were sensitive to the fact that we needed to catch up. Wait staff (Jorge P) was great. Made a number of recommendations and was sensitive to our needs. The food all around was very good - served to our taste and hot.

Went there for a business associate dinner. Asked to get a semi private area as our group of 8 tends to be somewhat loud - were given our own private room which was lovely. Our waitress Fran could not have been more pleasant - extremely professional, a great personality and a cutie pie to top it off. The food was... More

I've had far better experiences at lunch hour. The main dining room is large with a bare wooden floor. Very noisy at night but much more pleasant for lunch. Plus the wait staff is far more attentive at Noon or so and appears harried at the dinner hour. The food is good, the service varies depending upon the hour, and... More

I have eaten at this restaurant, primarily at lunch over 10 or more years. It has always been a very good experience. The food is very good, service excellent. I have also eaten at the 2 other River Palm restaurants, primarily the one in Edgewater, NJ. which is always busy dinner time. Food and service good their as well.

higher class establishment. Wait staff all mature and well experienced, very willing to serve except that I was by myself and didn't get near the speedy attention that nearby tables did. I had a bowl of French Onion Soup as an appetizier which was really good, nice and salty! The salad that came with dinner was very generous in size,... More
