We enjoy visiting River Palm Terrace. The portions of meat and fish are gigantic. The complimentary salad with blue cheese is a very nice touch. But this is a typical steakhouse where you must order a la carte when ordering steak: there will not be a singular asparagus spear or potato to... read more

We only go to River Palm Terrace to celebrate special occasions and we are never disappointed! The cold seafood platter and their steaks are the BEST! Many thanks to George, the manager, for making sure we are always more than satisfied with our meal!

We were a group of 20, the service was great, always had drinks, food was served at the same time and the food was really good. But the prices are also very high and you would expect everything to be perfect for that price. The cutlery and the glass's need should be renewed, the glass was so scratched you could... More

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. $$$$
