    Outstanding! The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. My husband ordered the burger which was also very good. We will definitely be returning.

    My experience was in a rainy day, so the place was pretty empty. The service was exceptional. The food was scrumptious, and the all experience was wonderful. Although this place is expensive, it is unique and definitely worth it.

    Let's Meat is a little neighborhood gem! The food is delicious, atmosphere is great and the service is always friendly and attentive. Drinks are good too! For a casual evening, try to get a seat at the bar or in the bar area. It is a quick drive from Saddle River, USaddle River, Park Ridge, Woodcliff Lake, etc. Check them out!

    The food was phenomenal. The service was great but a little rushed. Where we seated wasn't the greatest place, too much traffic. Overall, it was very good, but for what, it was a little pricey.

    Poor communication skills of staff led to 2/3 of the entrees being incorrect and needing to be replaced. My husband’s side dish came out without the entree. They replenished his side dish when the entrees were served. Manager apologized and grandson’s birthday dessert was comped. Our ribeyes were more rare than medium but we didn’t send them back.

    Our experience was suboptimal. The restaurant was not full and the service was poor. No one refilled our water glasses, no return to the table to ask if we wanted another cocktail, no return to see how our food was prepared or if we had any concerns, our glasses of wine arrived, after inquiring twice during our meal, when we were 3/4 done eating. All our food was tasty and I have no complaints about that. However, for a restaurant that charges NYC prices, the service does not on par. I was very disappointed.

    Service was very good, atmosphere fair, noise level very loud but expected due to the holiday season. Price - way overpriced for the area. Appetizers: excellent, Rib Eye steaks inconsistent. Overall rating: Fair to Good.

    There were so many things wrong with our dinner that I don't know where to begin. Salad had way too much dressing on it My wife said her hamburger wasn't very good. The Prime Wednesday special was NOT special. Vegetables were undercooked, Steak was mediocre, potatoes lacked flavor. They must have turned off the heat after 9:00pm as we finished the meal with our jackets on. Not many gluten free options for my wife. They ran out of the dessert we ordered. Prices were ridiculously high for the value. I should have listened to my friend and gone somewhere else.

    Porterhouse and Tomahawk could have been bigger with a less fatty piece, for the price we paid. Service and ambience was outstanding, food taste was delicious. Our only complaint was the size and piece we got was not the standards of the price we paid. Drinks were phenomenal.

    Forgot my Tesla key card so was told I could not park in their lot. Why not?? Also felt a little rushed during the meal. Someone was always coming around and asking if we were finished when there was still food on our plates. I think it was to be helpful and accommodating but it felt over done for sure

    This is my new favorite. I almost don't want to write the review b/c I am afraid this giant sleeper will become too popular and I won't be able to get in!!! Food was UNBELIEVABLE, fresh and delicious. We had the porterhouse perfectly cooked as requested and the chicken milanese. Prices were reasonable and great variety on the menu. I am already thinking of my next reservation and meal. Hard to find a good steak house. The River Palm has met their match.

    Food and drinks were outstanding. One of the best octopus appetizers I have ever had. Service was poor. Appetizers never received. Beverages requested never received. 1/2 full glass of wine bussed from table while in bathroom. Servers were clearly frazzled and it showed in their demeanor. Meals were excellent. Everyone loved every dish we were served.

    First time here. Needs second chance. First, know that though the restaurant has a byo policy, with their move to this location they received a liquor license so, if you intend to byob, they will charge you a $35 corkage fee. Ok with us because we had an already expensive bottle with us and desire for cab. Though their wine list has a nice wine for every budget, with one exception their cabs start at $100 and go WAY up. So, with that expectation, it won’t be a future problem. Second, though the name explicitly says MEAT, suggesting STEAK, they have a really interesting and varied menu of pastas , salads, chicken and veal at fair prices for some innovative options. Finally, our meal. Smoked bacon in brown sugar and Pappy van Winkel bourbon was scrumptious. Very sweet but balanced with only a touch of bourbon to offset it nicely. Fried green tomato appetizer again, was a winner, the equal of same in the South, but with a pesto sauce that didn’t quite have the same zip of the South’s remoulade. But it was different and yummy. Mains. Crab cake very nice, not best we’ve ever had but certainly up there. Very meaty, chunk style. But the bed of salad and truffle fries were REALLY good. Unfortunately, I ruined a gorgeous beef filet that was cooked to absolute perfection with my choice of sauce. Note that the chimichurri is HOT. I like spicy hot things and hotter than most other folks do, but this was so hot I literally could not taste the beautiful meat. I asked for a Bernadine to replace it and it came quickly but by then I had this spicy oil all over my plate that touched all the remaining food. So, if you like spicy - hot oil, the chimi here fits the bill. But son’s order it with a nice steak, if you want to taste the meat. We like the cozy, euro-cave ambience and our waitress was very nice and efficient. Nice bar, that we did not check out. Next time.

    Not worth the money. NYC prices and food quality decidedly lower than expected, lower than comparable surrounding steak places. Meat was tough and tendinous, without juice. Vegetables over-slathered with cream/cheese.

    Let’s Meat is a consistently great restaurant with many favorite dishes that we crave. Always great service, we tend to like the bar area, and fun ambience. Try the baked clams and tuna appetizers. The steak is great- it’s a meat place, right? Yet I find the salmon and salads worthy of a thumbs-up too! This is a super neighborhood spot we highly recommend.

    Been here 5 times , first 3 great last 2 have been awful. Service was just terrible , steak was def not prime - very ordinary Supermarket steak. You can give a place a pass on bad service if packed. Was just our table and another. Feels almost as if they are trying to run it to ground. Won't be back. 175pp - not many drinks considering we couldn't get served. Better options

    Service was not good. Our waitress was inattentive and not friendly at all. The food is overpriced and not worth it. We all opted for steak since it’s a steakhouse, but it was nothing special and not worth the price. I have had steak way better than tonight.

    First off, the service staff was incredible. The woman who greeted us at the door was off-putting but the gentleman with her came by later as was very friendly. Even joked about her odd remark at the door. Luckily we only saw her briefly and the rest of the staff was excellent. The bread is very fresh and tasty. The bacon appetizer was very good. They added some sauce to the steakhouse classic, which I don’t think was needed, but was still very good. Unfortunately, the lobster tail cocktail was terrible. I think it’s the most expensive appetizer on the menu. It was bland and I can’t imagine fresh. I’ve had the colossal shrimp cocktail before and it was very good. Was hoping the tail would be the same caliber—it’s not. The medium rare porterhouse was good. It was cooked and seasoned well and still a good temperature when it got to the table. They get points for that. But for a place that seems to promote themselves as a steak place, it wasn’t top quality. There are far better steaks nearby. But it was fine. The truffle fries were probably the best part of the meal, which is nice, but at those prices not a reason to return. The sautéed wilted spinach was terrible. Way too much oil & garlic. I’ve had it before and it was very good. So good I ordered a again. So, maybe an off night. The desserts were decent. We were mistakenly given a cookie dish sundae that was basically a cookie melted in hot fudge with ice cream. Very mushy but tasty. They comped that mistake and brought the rainbow cookie sundae we ordered. They use very good rainbows and what can go wrong with ice cream and strawberry sauce? Not a reason to return, but good desserts. I’m not surprised this place was mostly empty in a Saturday night. The front of the house (except 1 greeter) was awesome. The back of the house, not so much. I don’t think we’ll return. Too bad. We had high hopes for Let’s Meat.
