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.

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

I dined here with a colleague of mine and was astonished that I had not found this gem sooner. Our server was a slim older gentleman named Jim, who thankfully was attentive to the fact that we were there to discuss business during our meal. He kept the interruptions to a minimum and anticipated any possible requests before we could... More

Amazing experience, with GREAT service and GREAT food!! The server, Shant, was very attentive!!! The hostess and rest of the staff was very nice and asked us how our experience was upon leaving. The food was delicious. We will absolutely be back!

My wife & i dine at the river palm twice a month. The Food & Service is Great at the River Palm. The Porter House for Two melts in your mouth. We also recommend the lobster mac n cheese. We also Like to sit in the bar area to watch the Tv, it really feels like your at home. Jason... More

Exceptional food, service and ambiance. "Fireplace" room is the best for business meetings. Quality of food is "Excellent" George is the best. Ask for him to help arrange your evening if you have a large party attending!

I went to the River Palm in Mahwah,NJ several days ago with some girlfriends looking to have a nice night out. The night could not have been worse! The service was all around terrible, the food was poorly prepared, the drinks were awful, and the bathroom was filthy. The hostess, waitress, and bartender were ALL rude and had NO manners.... More

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 ordered it again! To compound... 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
