We be been going here for years and as always, they did not disappoint. We had a bit of confusion as my nephew and brother had to eat in 30 minutes due to a basketball game. The waiter did not miss a beat as everyone were served beautifully. The NY Strip was fabulous, the lamb chops outrageous and the accompaniments... More

My husband and I had dinner at the River Palm to celebrate our Anniversary. It was a Sunday evening and not very busy. The hostess was very nice and let us pick our table. Our waiter was very friendly and pleasant. Dinner was delicious. We shared a special salad (wish I had the dressing recipe) with apples and goat cheese.... More

Although this restaurant specializes in steaks, the seafood offerings are also pretty spectacular. Weekends are a bit noisy so weekdays maybe a better time if noise level disturbs you.

My husband's birthday was on that day and he wanted to go for a steak. I made an online reservation and indicated that it was my husband's birthday. There was nobody in the restaurant at our 2pm reservation time except one other person who was leaving. Nobody greeted us at the front door. We had to look around for somebody... More

I probably wouldn't go as far as "very good", but both the steaks and seafood are decent. It provides a nice atmosphere for business dinners. I personally, wouldn't go if I had a choice.

Had steak at Thanksgiving and didn't regret it. Staff was excellent despite having to work the Holiday and the kitchen also did very well. Would definitely return.

We went here based upon a recommendation from the nearby hotel where we were staying. Everything was excellent and the place is attractive. A good choice for any kind of event from a business meeting, special occasion, to a date night.

When I hear the word "Steak" I immediately think of the River Palm in Mahwah. Besides the fact that George is a great matre'd and always welcoming, the rest of the staff make sure you are family. This is truly a steak house, but the seafood appetizer, as well as the lobster are not to be ignored. Definitely on top... More

We went to celebrate a birthday - we had looked at the menu on line and knew it was pricey - however, we had received a $100 gift certificate and felt since it was a special occasion we would try the place. Upon arrival it appeared you could only valet park, but we requested to self park and there was... More
