River Palm has customer service that matches their food quality. Everyone from the valet, to the hostess and wait staff were exceptional. The calamari 2 ways was delicious with a little kick. Our waiter also gave us the classic marinara sauce which was equally satisfying. The house-made mozzarella and beefsteak tomato was fresh and tasty. We each had steaks from... More

My husband and I came here for my birthday dinner. The place is cozy and the food is delicious. I would go back here to celebrate special occasions because it's expensive.

Went there with my aqua fitness class. The atmosphere was nice but the food lackluster. The prices and the food quality and taste didn't marry well. Over rated...over priced!

Very poor service and overpriced food. Unless you are a fan of Ruth's Chris or lower in that food chain, I would avoid this restaurant. The rudeness and crassness of the Cynthia / Maggie duo who work customer service merit an SNL skit.

Cold seafood platter was good and so was the creamed spinach. Had more fat and grizzle on the prime rib and for the amount paid should have been trimmed off.

Classic old fashioned steakhouse, excellent food. Excellent seafood platter. Fair selection of wines. Attentive service by what I like to call "old fashioned waiters", the one you can't find any more. My favorite: Pork chops with cherry peppers, really amazing, order a bottle of Passito Bertani with it.

almost faultless.........food was superb but I knocked a point off for 2 reasons. Firstly the restaurant is very dark and with low ceilings this makes it also noisy.....very noisy. Because of this the service can seem a little rushed although I think its just that the waiting staff seem to dash around which makes the dining experience a little stressed.... More

Welcome to the River Palm Terrace, New Jersey's finest steakhouse! We serve the finest prime beef available anywhere. Only 1% of the beef fabricated in America is suitable for use in our restaurant. Our beef is hand selected from the best-fed cattle by the finest stockyard packing companies in the west. The steaks are center cut only from U.S.D.A. Prime Beef, aged on the premises to the mellow point of perfection and then hand crafted by our own butcher for incomparable tenderness and flavor. Even our prime rib is prime. All of our prime beef is tender and juicy beyond imagination.....Search the world over, taste and savor, you'll find no other meats to compare, by any standards, with superb selections of the River Palm Terrace restaurant. This is an assurance and our promise.
