A Nice Evening
This River House restaurant looks very appealing, especially at night when the stings of lights highlight the architecture of what appears as a grand old house It would have been very disappointing if there was no restaurant in the house to enjoy. The restaurant does not disappoint, either in ambiance or culinary delight. The menu is not long, but sufficient for each varied taste within our group. The described ingredients of the soup of the day and salad selections were intriguing and did not disappoint. The main course selections chosen by our group were cooked to perfection for all but one. One beef dish was requested to be more well done and was returned quickly with satisfying results. Desserts were excellent to finish the meal.

4 of us went out for my Mom's
4 of us went out for my Mom's birthday and had a very nice time. The food was wonderful and our server knew just when to come with water refills and the courses were well spaced. I will definitely be back.

Our dinner at the River House
Our dinner at the River House was AMAZING! It was probably one of the best meals we have ever had. We had the soup of the day - Sour Cream and Chive (it was outstanding!), crab cakes (appetizer) and the Atlantic salmon (Entree). The salmon was delicious as well as the rice and brussels that it came with. This was our first visit and will not be our last. We can't wait to return. We had a look at the brunch menu and it looks Delicious! Our compliments to the Chef!

Fantastic dinner and atmosphere,
Fantastic dinner and atmosphere, as usual. This time we sat on the "wine bar" side of the house, with it's guilded ceilings and dark wood. Beautiful spot.

We enjoyed our Sunday Brunch
We enjoyed our Sunday Brunch here very much. The setting is very nice and we were really enthralled with the original art that adorned the walls. The food and food prep was of a very high quality (in-house smoked salmon bennie, egg frittata, waffles, fresh preserves and compotes). The service was enthusiastic, efficient, and very pleasant.

The prime rib was awesome
The prime rib was awesome and I love that if you want a glass of wine you have a choice between 6 oz and 9 oz. Excellent service too.Highly recommend it.

A great place for a quiet
A great place for a quiet dinner with friends and family. We enjoyed the fact that we were able to talk and enjoy the comfortable ambiance.. The food was so tasty. The only complaint was that for the price of $35.00 a plate, a bit more greens on the plate and some fresh bread served with dinner would justify the price. I do not have a big appetite and I was able to eat everything on my plate.

This is a nice location in an old house. Since there was not much selection I would probably not go back because there was only one or two items that were of interest. The presentation is very nice and I guess that is what you pay for. It was not really a WOW factor.

The food was very tasty. Making reservations was fast and easy online!

we were seated in the dining
we were seated in the dining area on the right side of the restaurant.Not my favourite side.

My boyfriend and I went for Saturday brunch and it was incredible! The service was exemplary and the food was outstanding, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic brunch in the spring or summer. When we went the weather was beautiful and the patio was perfect!!

again and again
We return again and again ...the food is excellent and the service is always very good...our server, she had a good knowledge of the food items, willing to take the time explaining suggestions,

Great evening out!
We had a great time at River House Grill! The food was very well prepared and balanced ! Great meal selection!
We were a group of 6 and there was a choice for everyone's taste.

We had never been to River House before, but lucked out into a last-minute reservation for Father's Day brunch. The staff was friendly and professional, yet maintained a very personable sense of humour. Service was impeccable and the food delicious. We plan to return.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a treat!
My sister and I took our dad here for Father's Day brunch and it was delicious. Couldn't have asked for the eggs to be cooked better, the smoky jalapeno hollandaise was a perfect match for the crab cake bennie and the sausages were to die for. Even the coffee was perfect. And I am a picky restaurant critic, so it's wonderful to just say that somewhere I ate is a gem! Cute, cozy, romantic, and everything. Highly recommend!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glad I finally got to come here
The food and the service were outstanding. I will make it a point to come to try the Sunday brunch!
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was awesome. Highly recommend. Really good chef and team in the kitchen.

River House St. Albert Fantastic
Went to The River House in St. Albert. The food was wonderful, expertly presented and full of exciting flavors. A very intimate dining experience for those that want to get away from the usual chain restaurants. Service was great best meal we've had since arriving in Edmonton. Highly recommended.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had not been to the Riverhouse in years. It was great.
All the meals in our group were excellent.
The Chef even took the time to bring to the table some of the interesting tools used in his kitchen when we asked a couple of questions about the prep. Awesome.

We came in for lunch. Excellent
We came in for lunch. Excellent service food and location. We felt the prices were high for the amount served not that we were expecting a plate full but it did seem very small. We had the smoked salmon sandwich and the beet salad and wished that the server had perhaps explained that this wasn't enough to make a meal. The restaurant was pretty well empty which is too bad it's lovely. I would recommend to a friend but as somewhere to go on special occasions.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not that outstanding
I was excited to try this place & I wasn't that impressed overall. The restaurant wasn't busy but we had to wait excessively to be seated. When we were seated in the mostly empty place she sat us right outside the noisy kitchen door. When it was time to order they were out of the entree I wished to order. The food was good the service after being seated good but nothing special. I would like to try it again& hope for a better experience.

We were there for a birthday brunch with my family and was very happy with the service and food was excellent.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I go for the food, but the presentation on the plate, the polite service, the soft music allowing for easy conversation, convenient parking, comfortable seating.....the whole package. After the meal you feel you have had a real treat.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere is very inviting. Beautiful building and decor.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful start to the day. We sat on the veranda overlooking an amazing view. Was like we were in the countryside. The wait staff was very friendly and the service was great. The food was absolutely wonderful. There is absolutely no question about it - we'll be back.

Sunday Breakfast on the Sturgeon
This was our first time to the restaurant, although we have been trying for years to get out there. The food was awesome! We had the eggs bennie and wow...very good. The service was fantastic. We sat on the balcony because it was a beautiful morning. The balcony is intimate and perfect for groups or couples. It is cozy and perfect for a Sunday breakfast. We will be going again but next time, we will bring friends.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a wonderful experience
We've been going to The Riverhouse for almost 6 years and we never leave disappointed. The service is wonderful...the staff is friendly and accommodating and go out of their way to make you comfortable.
After Willie sold and the menu changed we were unsure what to expect...but it continues to be fabulous.
Our favorite 'Special Occasion' restaurant hands down!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
was not disappointed, food and service excellent . flowers that were ordered earlier arrived and arrived on the table. One note of concern I had asked to located in a quiet location. We found ourselves next to a large family even though the place was not busy.
Waiter very professional and attentive, did not hover - or break into conversation
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience from the ability to book the reservations on line to the last crumb of dessert. The service was excellent and the food was beautifully presented, very tasty and generous portions. Excellent value and I look forward to our next visit.

I've been living in St. Albert for over 10 years now and I'm surprised that I continue to have new and wonderful dining experiences. "How could I have missed out on this amazing restaurant all of these years?" I said to my Mom as we enjoyed our scrumptious brunch on the veranda of the River House Grill. She's from out of town and I love to show her a nice time when she comes to visit. "This time" she said, "you've outdone yourself!" Little does she know, the bill did not reflect this at all. Considering the top notch experience we had in food, scenery, service and general ambience, this was a very reasonable price tag. I can't wait to go back!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I enjoyed a very tasty, relaxing meal in celebration of your wedding anniversary. The beef short ribs was so tender you didn't need a knife, and the soup of the day (cauliflower/white chocolate) was delicious. The desserts were decadent...try the cheesecake!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I always enjoy going to the River House in St. Albert. It is a favourite spot that I always recommend when meeting my friends for a relaxing brunch, lunch or dinner. My son and his girlfried go there for romantic evenings and I have also gone there for dinner with my family. The food is exceptional, the service outstanding and the ambience is great.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, service & ambience!
I've been to this restaurant couple of times already and keep coming back. The price of the food is a little bit high but you get what you paid for. I would recommend to try their prime rib steak because it was the best, so tasty and flavourful. Try the chocolate lava cake as well very delicious. I would recommend River House to all my family and friends because of their exceptional food and service!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be repeat visitors
The service was fantastic, the food was great, especially the butternut squash soup. It reminded us of Europe as the Chef came out and introduced himself. The main dining room was under renovation and we look forward to dining here again when they are complete.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
four of us went at 5:00 on
four of us went at 5:00 on a Sunday and were thoroughly impressed with the new menu. the appetizers were very enjoyable and the entrees were certainly beautifully presented and delicious as well as a full 8 oz protein portion. Our server was fantastic. The garden vegetable appetizer was a work of art.

River House Delight!
Had the chance to have lunch at the River House. The restaurant side is currently under renovations, and is expected to open on Nov 8th. Dining was moved across the hall to their beautiful Wine Bar. The food, service, and ambiance were excellent! Can't wait to go back, and definitely want to try out their Sunday Brunch too.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The main restaurant was being renovated. Dinner was being served in the wine bar. The room was more than adequate. The staff were friendly and professional. The meal was very good, we started with crab cakes and the squash soup. For the mains we had chicken and short rib. Desert we cheese cake and custard. The experience was great. The value for the cost were acceptable. This was the first time we had been at this restaurant and we enjoyed the experience, we were celebrating a birthday. Definetly going to be adding this to our list of go to restaurants.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
It started with the beautiful Christmas lights & wreaths as you come up to the door. Inside the restaurant you are greeted with a warm fire along the wall and welcomed by the host. Our server was well versed in the menu items & wine list and was always prompt in making sure we were all taken care of. We all were very pleased with our tasty selections and thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere.Truly a gem of a restaurant in St. Albert.

My husband and I don't get to go out without the kids very often but when we do we like to go to the river house because we know we will not be disappointed! Always delicious!
