Great food with a river view
The restaurant sits just above the Columbia River. We had a very nice table next to a window with a great view out onto the river. Soft lighting, good table linens, candle light. Our server was solicitous but not intrusive. The food was beautifully plated and delicious. We would definitely return.

Riverside Easter Buffet
The Easter Buffet at Riverside was very good. Loved the eggs that were shaped like chicks. They even had a kid-friendly buffet table. A beautiful Easter flower basket was by the entrance to the buffet. We had a very nice time on Easter morning.

it was an unusually warm night and not windy, so sitting outside on the deck was gorgeous. The food was scrumptious... I had the veggie burger which they make themselves and truly was one of the best I"ve ever had. Portions are enormous...Service was great...was a lovely birthday celebration. And when they heard of that, they gave us a delicious dessert for free. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back. A true gem in the gorge.

Delicious Riverside Dinner!
Our party enjoyed the grilled salmon/nicoise salad special, ribeye with gnocchi, fish & chips, and the creamy gnocchi dinners. We sat on the deck and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the view. We shared and passed around two desserts which were delectable. Our server was both attentive and friendly. For an enjoyable and delicious meal, why would we go anywhere else?

Stellar outdoor seating & view
Outstanding food and service - great outdoor seating on the deck overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. Very efficient and pleasant staff. Excellent service without being stuffy and dramatic! Food was inventive and scrumptious with well sourced ingredients.

A Nice Surprise
This was our first time here visiting from Portland. When we drive into the parking lot of the Best Western Hotel, I thought my GPS was taking us to the wrong place even though it was on the river.
We were seated promptly right next to window with a great view of the river, poured a great cup of coffee and from there I knew we were in the right place. The food was unique and delicious for breakfast tempting for both children and adults...we look forward to our next visit.

Dining on the river is wonderful
We had king salmon and perfectly cooked exactly as ordered. They had a menu to make us all happy which included vegetarians, meat eaters, health nuts and all. A health-oriented menu Michael Pollan would approve of and also yummy. Very good advice about local wines, excellent service. Highly recommend.

A pleasant surprise
I will admit that I would be one of first people to dismiss the potential of a restaurant in a Best Western, but I am happy to admit I was wrong. We had breakfast at the Riverside before a long bike ride. The location was convenient and the restaurant opens early. The service was fast and professional and the food was very good. The view of the Columbia didn't hurt either. I would definitely stop in again the next time I'm in the area.

Beautiful night - great food, impeccable service, and a stunning view. Fresh wild salmon, cooked perfectly. Fantastic pasta dishes with unique flavor combinations. The service of the entire staff was top notch without being over the top or stuffy. Very relaxing and enjoyable environment.

We sat outside and enjoyed that view of the river. It was a bit breezy, but still worth the it. The food was quite good too.

The Riverside is integral
The Riverside is integral to the Best Western hotel. Both are wonderful values.
We ate there twice, and enjoyed quality, well-priced food. And they accommodated my food allergies.
I highly recommend both.

moon rise over the columbia
my birthday included a full moon & to make sure i could watch it rise, i left portland for the east side of the cascades & chose the Riverside Restaurant as being most likely to have the view i desired. it is located right at the edge of the columbia river & the moon indeed rose full from behind the river bluffs on the washington side. everyone in the restaurant knew i wanted a good view & took extra care to make sure i was at the best table for moon viewing & that my sweetheart & myself could share the same side, thus sharing the wonderful view. the food was excellent & everyone was so friendly & sweet about it being my birthday: i even ate dessert, on the house, & it was delicious; warm & spicy & seasonal! (not normal for me!) thanks~!

Great food, great view!
This restaurant has a gorgeous view of the Columbia River, and when the weather is warm you can enjoy it from the outside deck. We have always enjoyed the food here. We usually have one of the pasta dishes, and gluten free pasta is available. Great wine selection, too. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed this place the first time by referral from Urban Spoon...then 2 years later we returned to the area for a weekend and made sure that we dined there again. Salmon and Rib eye- fantastic! Chocolate torte- yumm! Our server was amazing and so accommodating - sending our leftovers with plates and flatware for later ( we were staying in the hotel). Beautiful riverside table, candlelit dining room- just wonderful. Breakfast the next morning was also great!
