    The Park Steakhouse is an excellent choice for the steak and seafood lover! The appetizers were equally delicious! We sat upstairs and had a corner seat which was perfect for the 6 of us. The noise level was moderate which was refreshing and the ambience reflected a high-end restaurant. The drinks are pretty pricey, however I would recommend this place.

    Appetizers and drinks were excellent. However one main course did not meet the diner's expectation. The staff replaced the main course with another and the diner was all smiles again. The service was cordial and the evening ended on a happy note.

    If you want a good steak, Park Steakhouse is not the place. I had the 24 oz Porterhouse for $53.00. Way overpriced for a 1/2" to 3/4" thick tasteless piece of meat. The staff did offer a full refund and was very accommodating. I refused and finished the steak. The rest of the food was mediocor at best.

    This was our first visit & our expectations were exceeded. The atmosphere was lovely. The service was friendly and professional. The food was superb. For app's we had a very nice chopped salad & the pork belly, for dinner we had sea bass & short ribs, and for dessert we had chocolate souffle. All of the food was expertly prepared, beautifully seasoned, and absolutely delicious. We heard several nearby patrons raving about their food, as well. We will definitely return!

    Although the restaurant was nearly empty on a week night, service was not what would have been expected. Sirloin steak was slightly above average and the fish special had a fishy taste. Expected more for the price.

    If you have a jones for a well prepared, good cut of meat, you won't be disappointed at Park Steakhouse. The NY Strip was cooked and served to perfection and although they didn't let me substitute mashed for the shoestring that came with the steak, the mashed were fresh and delicious. Definitely a do over!

    Have not been there in 13 years but decided to go because the appetizers seemed unique and desserts seemed good. One couple with us just shared appetizers and I have to say all we tried were amazing, especially the sliders, scallop with foie gras, lobster tacos just to name a few. Desserts were also very very good, different than the normal steakhouse which is a good thing. The only thing that disappointed was the steak itself, we shared a porterhouse for 2, it was dry and cooked beyond medium, was tough and didn't have much flavor. At $84 and being a steakhouse I would have expected more. I will return but will do as the other couple did and share several of the amazing appetizers.

    We chose to go to The Park to celebrate my birthday. We have gone there before , usually on a week night to celbrate a special occasion. This was Saturday night , and it was pretty crowded. We were in between the early birds leaving and the next group of folks waiting. Although we had a reservation for 8:30 we were pushed back some, but the staff was very supportive and provided alternatives, we were happy staying at the bar and having a drink. Finally when the table was ready, the offered us a round of drinks on the house, which we were appreciative, and it also made the night a little more special. Thanks to the professional team , from the waiters, bartender, and entire staff for a great night - food was great as well

    Don't go to the Park Steakhouse very often but several times a year and it always delivers. Starting off with an ice cold martini helps. Food is always delicious and service is generally top notch. I would recommend Park Steakhouse to anyone.

    We've been going to the Park Steakhouse for year and have had good initial experiences. This time around, we were 5 and when we arrived we were quickly showed to our table. We started with the steakhouse salad, which this time was off. Previous times, were really enjoyed it - but this night it was off. As for the mains we all ordered steaks. A couple of filet mignons, a hanger steak and a cowboy (bone-in rib-eye). When we were served 4 of the steaks arrived on one time - but the hanger steak was MIA. It arrived 5 minutes later. We then discovered two of the steaks were undercooked. All in all - a very disappointing experience and no proper response by the restaurant. We will not be back.

    I had a reservation on a Saturday night, the person I was meeting was slightly late. The host was more than pleasant about the delay which really started the evening off well. Things just got better after that, the food was wonderful and the wait staff was truely professional. My only wish is that I lived closer.

Great wine. dessert on the house for birthday. A great place for a special meal, very expensive, we knew that when going. Save it for a special dinner.

    The Park Steakhouse has such a great menu you will want everything. The seafood is just as good as the steak. The scallops with foie gras are legendary but we tried raw oysters and little necks and they were perfectly fresh and sweet. The chopped salad was a nice lighter salad with blue cheese crumbles but I would have preferred a different salad if the server described it better to me when I asked the difference between it and the bib. The flavors of the fish special with risotto with leeks and a lobster butter sauce and kale were so good I ate every bite. Salmon skin was not crispy though. The cowboy steak is great, make sure you get it medium or it gets too charred on the outside. Get the ENGLISH TOFFEE PUDDING CAKE! Would go back!

    Enjoyed my "special occasion" night out with my wife. We wanted to go somewhere different and be treated to a special dinner. We got both, just not to the degree you would expect. The ambience and service was perfect. Really don't think you could ask for better without it being uncomfortable. The food was good, just not as good as the restaurant's reputation. There are other near by Bergen County restaurant's that I would gladly visit for our next "special occasion", and know I'll enjoy the food more, and, pay a little less.

  • Business As Usual?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/28/2013
    My first visit was taking a client's family for dinner. First sign of trouble - my wife could not find any credible pieces of octopus in the "grilled octopus" appetizer. The waitress poked around the overly abundant sausage slices insisting that there was octopus "in there". We sent it back. She should have just done that without trying to prove the customer wrong. Downhill from there. Three surf and turf dinners came out with the meat at room temperature. All 3 were sent back. So we ate in shifts - three guests ate their meals while three of us waited for ours. Once they were done, our meals were re-served. There were no apologies or accommodations from the manager, as if this was business as usual. I know 6 people who won't be back.
