I've been to many of the top steakhouses in NYC and when I went here I saw the prices were similar, so I hoped the food quality would also measure up. It did not. The t-bone for had many tough, fatty, inedible pieces. The place was empty (not surprising) and all aspects of the appetizers and sides were mediocre at best.

On a recent visit to the River Palm Terrace in Fair Lawn, we ordered the porterhouse steak, for two. When it arrived, we were surprised to find that they had had served us a T-bone steak with a separate piece of fillet mignon on the side. The difference between a T-bone and porterhouse cut is in the amount of the filet mignon (tenderloin) side of the bone.
When I complained about this to the manager, she curtly replied that I was wrong. She further stated that all restaurants do this and that we should be pleased that they included the extra piece of fillet mignon.
They will not have another opportunity to pawn off a T-bone cut as a porterhouse at our expense as we will never return to this restaurant.
