River Palm Terrace, Fair Lawn – They tired to serve us T-bone steak with a separate piece of fillet mignon on the side as a porterhouse steak fot two. When I complained about this to the manager, she curtly replied that I was wrong. She further stated that all restaurants do this and should be pleased that they included the extra piece of fillet mignon.
This was the second and final time that they will pawn off a t-bone cut as a porterhouse at my expense as we will never return to this restaurant.
GET HERE NOW – WOW. I've been to some great steakhouses, but the River Palm is my favorite. Not only are their steaks top-shelf, but their lobster tails are second to none. Order the surf & turf, and get the best of both worlds! They have a good wine list, gret mixed drinks, and outstanding dessert (the tiramisu is my fav). Their staff is also very professional. Nice ambience as well, especially after the new rennovation which boasts a greatly expanded bar area. A MUST for anyone in the area.
Best Steak House – I've been to all 3 RPT locations. Although I prefer Mahwah (less crowded than Edgewater, cozier than Fairlawn) the food is consistently excellent with with a broad menu, and professional wait staff. The wait is usually minimal with reservation at Mahwah. I have not had better steak in NYC!
mdkmd – Good luck finding a better porterhouse for 2; Luger's is maybe 1% better, but RPT's cottage fires are unique and NO ONE can touch them.
Great Filet. Wine list is very good (Sparks is better) with some good values. Occasional wine specials include magnums of Silver Oak.
Overall, no one in NYC can touch RPT, including Old Homestead. Try RPT in Fair Lawn, less crowded.
Great Steaks!!! – I had taken my San Francisco guest to Peter Luger's this summer at their request to try what they heard was great things of the steaks and the abusive waiters...the food was mediocre and the staff was pleasant...We then went to the River Palm and the steaks were outstanding the service was great, better atmosphere etc...why make the trip to Brooklyn when everything you need is in your own back yard.
NY in Jersey... – The RPT is a really nice little steakhouse if you don't want to hoof it into the city. Its easier to get a table and the meats are very good. Not quite as good as the countries best, but better than some stalwarts in NYC. I've been around the country and have tried some of the best (Harris', Lugers, Hereford House, etc.), RPT is a B-level place which is well worth the time and money. Enjoy it.
Mildly Disappointed – Filet was somewhat of a disappointment--not much flavor and on the tough side. Prime Rib was cold and very fatty--Drinks were good though--Very expensive--I've had much better for less
worth the trip from ANYWHERE – This is always my first pick for any special occasion. Yes, the steaks are phenomenal, but that's just the beginning. From the clams casino through the house salad with blue cheese (on the side, please) to the outrageous sorbets and ending with the sinful mudpie, THIS restaurant is # 1.
unbeatable steaks – The food is everything; the waiters are great, but they essentially don't honor reservations (wait with reservations of 30 - 45 minutes are typical).
Very Nice! – The food is as good as the service. I recommend it to friends all the time.
