Not even close! – My friend and I visited this place after seeing a juicy commercial of their steaks.
We spent quite a lot of money here and ordered all their top of the line items. We ordered the seafood platter for apps that came with lobster tails, crab meat, shrimp.
The seafood, was over frozen - it wasnt very fresh. for $60 dollars, it should be better.
The steak sucked. We ordered the butcher picked filet mignon. It came out like a piece of rubber. I had to send it back, and they butterflied my filet to help it cook faster. Who butterflys a filet mignon when your paying $43 dollars for it??
For the prices they charge, the steak should be melting in your mouth and most importantly, it should be tender!
Please save your money - our bill was $200 for 2 people. NOT INCLUDING TIP. I highly suggest CLIFFS STEAKHOUSE in englewood cliffs for a real steak house.
totally not worth the $ – My sis and I took my father here for his bday, because of all the hype about the best steak and seafood in the tri-state area. We were soooooooo disappointed and disatisfied with the food you have no idea! my steak was like charcoal! its supposed to be this upscale place and they served us nasty chopped iceberg lettuce with our choice of steak, filet mignon, or fish. Who serves iceberg! I get that in my subway sandwich! Anyways, it was sooooooo expensive, and soooo not work the $.
Terrible service, average food – girlfriend took me here for my birthday, made a reservation 3 weeks ahead. when we got there, we waited for 10-15 mins. they then sat us right next to the kitchen. anyway when we complain they didn't care. don't waste your time here it's not worth half of what they charge.
Definitely Not Worth The Wait – We made reservations for 7:30pm. Upon arriving, we were told to go to the bar without an ETA for actual seating. We had to ask several times about the reservation and the hostess was very casual about being "backed up". Upon being seated (at 8:30), I advised the manager that we were very unhappy. The meal was okay at best. The food is definitely not worth the wait. The commercials claim that they are the best steak house in the tri-state area however there is no porterhouse cut of steak. There was little flavor. The bartender and waiter were pleasant and that is the most I can say positive about the experience. The manager merely said that we can show our face at the door next time and there will be no delay in seating. I seriously doubt there is a next time. We have had far superior food and service at the other area restaurants such as Flemings, Arthur's, Ruth's Chris, Franks?, and the Chart House.
Selectively poor service, overcrowding at our tableside – Went on Sat. 9/13, it was TERRIBLE! We had a reservation, but were seated right next to the entrance where many people were waiting. They were spilling over to our table. The service was horrific although our waiter was very attentive to the two larger tables next to us. My steak was way undercooked, he forgot one side [the manager finally brought it to us], no one refilled our water, no one asked if we were satisfied, and my boyfriend had to repeatedly ask for his drink. We skipped dessert and went elsewhere since we could not bear sitting there another minute. The steak is decent. Better choices in the area are Ruth Chris [Weehawken], Morton's [Hackensack], Flemings [Edgewater], and Arthur's Landing [Weehawken]. Spare yourself, there are plenty of other great restaurants and these other choices maybe even more economical than River Palm.
Better steak in the city for the prices asked for here. – I went to River Palm Terrace for a business dinner the other night. Although the outside looks classy, the service and food was average at best. The food was bland and if you are looking to pay upscale prices, as other posters have mentioned - Wolfgang's, Del Frisco's or Peter Luger's in New York City can give you great steak, appetizers and seafood for the same price. I cannot understand the hype about this place, as I could have cooked a better meal at home.
Not worth the hype... – People have rumored that this place has the best steak on the west side of the Hudson, but I would beg to differ. For a supposed upscale restaurant, the food was average, the ambience was bland and the service was horrible. I went to impress my girlfriend's family for a nice evening out, but I ended up regretting ever going to RPT. If they don't change the staff at this restaurant, I would have to say it's on the downswing towards gourmet history. You can risk it if you want, but don't believe the hype.
Stay In or Go to Manhattan for Dinner – If you are looking for an upscale dining experience, skip this restaurant, spend the $6 toll to goover the bridge and head into Manhattan. This is a restaurant that charges "upscale" prices and provides you with unwarranted attitude and bad decor. Though we had reservations for 8:30, we were not seated on time. When we were finally seated, the menus were just left in a pile on the table. The waiter was extremely rude to us, telling one member of my party, "Don't order what she's ordering!" No wine list. When I asked for wine, the waiter said "No." I suppose he was trying to be "cool" or funny. I don't appreciate that during a meal anywhere. Water glasses not refilled. I was sorry to have wasted an evening at this establishment. I still can't believe how rude the staff was.
Beats most steakhouses! – The absolute best porter house steak I ever had... Would go back every week...
HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE – A restaurant that has been in existence for quite some time should have the mind to hire a competent and polite staff. They were nothing but RUDE. There was one female waitress in particular that absolutely had the WORST attitude I have ever witnessed. She was disrespectful to elder PAYING patrons. As the table was cleared, they spilled sauce all over my guest's clothes, managing to stain both the dress and shawl. It took almost an hour to get us the bill. No apologies, no accomodations. Every patron had to go to their server to pay the check in order to leave the establishment. The female server did nothing but walk around complaining about how miserable she was and that she didn't want to be there. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! You will only walk away with a greased stomach and extremely poor service, if you can call it service.
