Description: Zip: 07450, phone 201-445-5400. From their website, it looks like they are owned by the same people who own The Park Steakhouse in Park Ridge, NJ, which you already have listed. Park West Tavern has been in existence for about 8 or 9 months (according to our server), so it may be about time to include it!

“NO”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Started out great but then went downhill fast. Food is uneven at best. Service has been downright awful at times. Bartenders are nice and do a good job. Other than that, the owners should really be paying more attention to this place, especially given the prices.

“Better than average gastro-pub vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Fresh menu, even if predictable for a gastro pub type place. They have a good selection of small plates if you want to share a few bits with your special someone, or a group of friends. Try the garden in the back when the weather is nice.

“Great Find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went here for a girl's night out and it was great. Service was awesome and the food was really good. Atmosphere would've been a whole lot better without a 4 or 5 year old BOUNCING up and down on the seat right next to me and staring at me. Can't blame the restaurant for something a parent should've taken care of and btw, not really a "children's" restaurant, more for adults. Great cocktail menu too!

“Go Elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Just got back from dinner at PWT - party of 6. Despite not being given bread plates, the meal started off nice with some decent appetizers (seafood platter, spring rolls and shrimp taco). When we got to the main meals, 5 of 6 were very disappointing. The short ribs was a slab of beef with little flavor, the steak in the hanger steak salad was burnt and the scallops were just ok, but the side of risotto was too sweet and a poor texture. The one highlight - the chicken. With so many other choices, we highly recommend you try somewhere esle.

“Not so special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

too loud, too expensive for what you wind up getting. silverware was filthy. half full personal bottle of water left on the banquet where I was seated. waitress would not/did not remove. I guess this place is okay for people who need to feel special by overpaying for food & drink.
