We had the cold seafood platter which was amazing and the cream sauce they give was so GOOD! Then we had a salad love the dressing wish I could buy a bottle of it. Then dinner came I had the sliced mingon and it was amazing could of went a little bit easier on all the onions and put more mushrooms. My husband had the prime rib and it was huge but half of it was fat and grizzle. It's like they didn't take the time to trim it up for that amount of money take 3 mins and cut off the fat. Very disappointed with that. Dessert we had the mixed berries and cheesecake always good. The valet was super nice and opened all the car doors for us not just the driver the coat check girl was so nice she remembered the coat even before we gave her the ticket and the host was also very nice and are server was GREAT she gave us time to eat and didn't rush us through dinner which was awesome. I just wish they didn't shove us all in one room right next to each other I mean I made reservations 2 weeks in advance and they stuck us in a corner and the next table was 2 feet away from us and if you had to get up you knocked into there table because it was so tight.

Wonderful steak house. Consistently good, albiet a bit expensive. The service is friendly and attentive without being obnoxious. The steak is high quality and the sides are good and plentiful.

Food has always been good but even better, the service staff are just fantastic and this brings your whole dining experience 2 levels up. The menu selction is rather limited but they are all great. If you need anything out of the ordinary, just let the waiter know. They will find a way with the kitchen team to toss something up.

My husband and I were taking out a couple for a celebration and wanted to have a high-end experience. We planned to go to the Chart House in Weehawken, but it was so foggy and rainy we decided it would not be worth the trip as we would not enjoy the view. We chose to come to the River Palm because it always enjoys a good reputation and was much closer to home.

I believe that we made a great decision. We all had a great time. The food was excellent - we all had beef of different varieties and we all licked our plates clean from dessert. But, as we thought back tonight about what made last night so special, we decided that our server made the difference between good and great. He was attentive but unobtrusive. He took care of our every need without interrupting the flow of the conversation. We lingered long after the other diners had left, but no one rushed us out the door. The restaurant is not cheap, but, as always, you get what you pay for!
Enjoy!

We have been going to this restaurant on New Years for the last 5 years and have always been very pleased. The food and the service is very good. They have their regular menu and they honor a reservation.
Will keep returning
