Pros: Very friendly staff, a gentleman I think is the owner comes out and chats with you and is very personable. Food is really good. On both visits, everyone in our group enjoyed their meals very much. Cons: It was pretty empty both times we went in. Although that helps with getting a table, it's nice to have a bit... More

We dined at Cliffs for New Years Eve and it was just fantastic. Some of the best service I have ever had. Wonderful bread!!! Terrific steak and tuna.

From the moment we walked in the manager was all over us in a friendly manner. Appetizers and salads were great ( beets excellent ) White Been superb. Lunch steak just the right size. Service was great. Give it a try.

We know Cliffs for many years and love the food and the house. I suggest the Porterhouse grilled and the special ice cream for dessert.

I have been a regular and my observation over the years at Cliffs Steakhouse is always consistent in terms of food quality. Cliffs provides one of the best shell steak and porterhouse in Northern NJ. I prefer Cliffs over the nearby competition for adequate size of the dining hall for a quieter conversation, a private room in the 2nd floor... More

Pricey, but outstanding atmospheres and service makes it well worth visiting. Lovely, romantic dinner by the fireplace is our favorite.

I visited this restaurant with a business associate for lunch. It was a very good experience. We were greeted and seated promptly. After looking over the lunch menu we each opted for one of the four lunch specials. Although the waiter did not ask how I would like my steak prepared, it was delivered on a sizzling plate, perfectly med... More

I went there for a business lunch with a colleague and order branzino fish while my colleague ordered a steak. Both dishes were fabulous, fresh, and delicious. But the service here was comparable to the service at a stereotypical rural Russian restaurant, where you get the feeling you don't quite fit in and the waiting staff does not try to... More

I read the reviews and thought the negative ones were too harsh. I was hopeful that the good reviews were accurate. I was wrong. When I read about the inconsistent servers, I thought that was no big deal. I was wrong. What a pain to ask a server for something and get no response. We asked for things repeatedly and... More
