This was our first time here, and it won't be our last. We were seated at a nice roomy booth off the bar as we requested, and it was intimate and not noisy even with other tables and booths occupied. Our server Keith was fantastic, and he guided us through the menus and specials. After we shared a generous Caesar salad, my wife had the veal chop, which was cooked to perfection and sliced. I had the very plump soft shell crab, and my only regret was that it was a single rather than the customary 2 per order. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. We chose an Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino, which was delicious and affordable.

Yes this is a very nice location and steady with their recipes. A little exotic but you can find something on the menu to suite your taste buds.

The food is always excellent. Mouth watering sushi, fish and steaks. Never disappoint. This time tried halibut, very well prepared. The company had sliced steak and tuna, very good reviews all around. Service is prompt and knowledgeable. The best bite was the fatty tuna sushi with fried rice, amazing. Highly recommend.. This is a traditional steakhouse with different menus of specials, traditional food and drink. Really excellent if you enjoy such fare. The vallet parking can get busy and there is seating on two levels, upstairs is quieter, downstairs more lively. Highly recommend dinner at River Palm for special occasions, especially for multigenerational events.

We arrived at 7:00 with our reservation at the exact same time, yet we did have to wait. At 7:30 someone helped us to our table. The wait was average for a thanksgiving weekend. Although I was overwhelmed by the formal dress code, our waiter was very friendly and polite, I had a great time. Food was good, but most of the appetizers filled me up before we ate the main meal. Their salad is probably the thing I liked best.

This restaurant used to be something special. Now it is an assembly line, a factory. I suppose they are a victim of their success, but it is impossible to get a reservation in the prime 7:00pm - 8:00pm time frame. Even around those times, you are likely to be told that the only thing available is the upstairs which is a vastly inferior experience. Doesn't matter if you dine there frequently or not. The hostess who takes reservations is curt and not very accommodating, although the server who generally waits on me has advise me to "just show up". The quality of the food is still generally good, but it's just to much of a hassle to deal with the crowded atmosphere and longer wait times to get food, drinks and service in general. Better bets are Flemings, Ruth's Chris, RP Prime Steakhouse, and Capitol Grill nearby.

We booked an early dinner at 6:00 pm, for our 39th anniversary (my husband was returning from an overseas trip so wanted to have an early evening). We thought the restaurant would empty but it was Packed! and noisy and my husband complained not romantic. However the early bird large groups with children left and it was a bit quieter. We had a booth with ample space for 2. The service was very attentive and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the evening out. Our waiter, Carlos even put candles on each of our desserts to commemorate our special day. This is a special place and we really had a wonderful dinner.

Arrived Friday afternoon, 5 PM, with three beautiful ladies, wife, her cousin, her cousin's mother, no reservation, seated immediately upstairs. Was then served throughout with absolute professionalism by Eddie. Group shared appetizers of crab cakes [the best], fried calamari [tender, delicious] and clams oreganata [not my favorite but everyone else loved them]. Main course for me was grilled veal chop, the best veal chop I've had in my seventy years, absolute perfect piece of meat, cooked precisely as requested [medium], seared beautifully, left the bone cleaned as if a pack of wolves had been at it. Side of sautéed mushrooms, delicious. Dessert of brownie with vanilla ice cream, super, and a single espresso, thick and strong and hot, native Italian style. Ladies had various steaks and zip, zero, nada, left on the plates. Place is not cheap but the best example of you get what you pay for, and at River Palm, it's the best it gets.

Went there for the first time today to celebrate wife's birthday. Reviews were very good which sort of raised the bar of my expectations. Even after that, I was surprised by the divine dishes we ordered (porterhouse for 2, cheeseburger and delicious desserts). The service was exceptional and the steak cooked to perfection. This place is a must for steak lovers!

Exceptional service, they are on top of you as are other guest in this tight speakeasy atmosphere. Got the steak for two it was delicious and cooked just almost perfectly medium rare. I love my potatoes and tried their fresh cut chips, it doesn’t stand a chance against chips and potatoes from the Iron bound. Appetizers and Desert was on the money. Soon as 6:30 seating left all the chairs filled immediately for a Tuesday? everyday is Saturday here plan & reserve. Good luck!

I was a regular there for lunch Larry Goodrich the manager and I had a minor argument because of bad experience He called me up the next day and told me to never go there again - if I showed up with my family he would personally escort me and my family out The food is good the service is not and the management is embarrassing and it is way overpriced. The manager Goodrich is better of in the kitchen making French fries or cleaning the floors It was embarrassing, he was unprofessional You are better off going to Ruth Chris' steakhouse or the Capital Grille in Paramus For a $350 meal and a 25% tip it is a place that I never will back to and I recommended that to all of my associates and client

No terrace seating though the name did suggest Terrace dining. Good indoor dining experience and were comfortable though the restaurant was full. Added advantage was the Valet parking service.

I had the usual perfectly prepared steak and friend loved her bronzino. Sides still amazing: Hash Browns (unlike none others ever tasted), Shaved Onions and Creamed spinach. Only minor flaw was - I asked the waiter if the chef could get a little creative with a Shrimp Appetizer (like Italian restaurants' Arrabbiata/Garlic Sauce) and it came out a little tough and weak sauce (Scampi-like vs. more garlic) and for $24, was disappointing. BUT, the main reason for my review was after an excruciating 95-minute ride from 7 miles away Hackensack (i was forced to accept 5:30 reservation after hearing great Cancer news in the morning to celebrate, i forgot about GWB traffic) the WAITER JOHN WAS SUCH A PLEASURE IN GREETING ME, SETTLING ME DOWN, AND ATTENDING THROUGHOUT THE MEAL, with his assistant, i had to tell his Management!! Thank you.

There is a reason that River Palm is always busy - it never fails to please. With a very experienced and dedicated staff, the food is always perfect and delicious
