A word from River Grille
The cuisine and surroundings of River Grille are contemporary and dynamic. Unlike many gourmet establishments, River Grille speaks the language of stylish value. River Grille is known for its energy and design. High ceilings, marbleized columns, minimalist paintings all contrast against its striking stainless steel open face kitchen. River Grille captures the style of the city without charging metropolitan prices.

    Outstanding restaurant, brought a client in for dinner and he was blown away. The steak was delicious, and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. The owner came over to say hello and to suggest an appetizer. It was a very pleasant experience.

    The food was delicious and the drinks were quite good. Our female server was very efficient. However, very loud and the front door being wedged open allowed cigarette smoke to infiltrate the room and irritate my wife and I. I think I would prefer going for lunch when it would be a little more subdued. All I all, an 80% rating.

    We have never been to Easton to dine before this. We had tickets for a show at the State Theatre and wanted to have dinner nearby.Iwent online and made reservations at the River Cafe. When we got to Easton, we mistakenly went to the River Grille. It turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Excellent food, good service and very nice restaurant. The noise level is a bit of a distraction but very thing else was first class. I would reccommend this restaurant to all who enjoy fine dining. I give it 5 stars for all but the noise issue.

    We love coming to th River Grille. The service is always spot on and the food is fantastic. My husband and I had the beet salad, tuna tartare and each had a pasta dish. Mine the Bianca and his the Occiarita w/ homemade sausage. We get the second often as it is extremely flavorful. The menu is thoughtful and diverse. From seafood, to pasta to steaks, there is somethng for everyone and it is reasonably priced.

    Been here many times. Food seems to be getting better too. Only complaint i would have its that they weren't too busy so the people with the water pitchers were coming around too much - at least we werent thirsty. Food and service was great otherwise.

    My wife and I had dinner on a Saturday night and we really enjoyed the entire experience. At first we were seated near the entrance to the rear dining area and the owner quickly can and seated us near a wall for more privacy. Our waitress was very pleasant and provided us with excellent service. The food was also fantastic. The ambiance was very nice and the atmosphere was very lively. My wife and I have three children and we very seldom go out on a date so we expect a lot when we we go to a nice restaurant. The River Grille was a great experience and we will definitely go back!

  • River Wait Grille
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/1/2014
    We went here for a special occasion, but afterwards wished we hadn't. We had a 7pm reservation, and when we arrived, were told they were running 15-20 minutes behind, which didn't seem to bad. But we didn't get seated until 7:45, which to me is unacceptable even for a Saturday, they must have issues with overbooking the restaurant, which is not fair to the patons expecting to sit close to their reservation time. I had the black n blue steak, which was just ok, as was my appetizer, shrimp & dumplings.

    We had not been to dinner in Easton before and came to River Grille to check it out. Very energetic place, creative menu and for a busy night the service was great. A little loud at first but then once the crowd thinned out it was easier to hear. Great food, perhaps a little pricey.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    This restaurant was not what I expected, the ambiance was good and was well staffed, but the food did not meet our expectations. We ordered shrimp Florentine and a steak dish (can't recall the exact name). The shrimp Florentine dish was very small and the steak dish had burned potatoes and over cooked steak overdone in their sauce. It seems they tried to cover up the potatoes because the dish had the good side up and the burned part was facing downward. We also had Sangria, which was not to our liking, was watered down, will NOT be dining here again.

  • The service was very friendly
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/7/2014
    The service was very friendly and spot on. The ONLY thing I cant stand is when restaurants have 3 concierges and the chef coming to your table every 5 minutes to either clear something, or ask you how everything is. (Kind of like being in a micro-managed vortex), which is a bit unnerving when you're trying to have a conversation with your partner. Other than that.. the food was awesome, and priced fair.

The view was decent in the porch area, with Drinkies right across the street. But overall, not too bad. Would recommend this to anyone passing through Easton.

    I am a frequent patron of State Theatre and have visited many of Easton's fine downtown restaurants but I wanted to try something new and decided on River Grille. It was a great choice! An appetizer of lobster bisque was creamy and smooth. I also had the scallops with creamed spinach and jasmine rice. I ended up getting almost half of it to go, so there was no room for dessert. The staff and service were excellent, extremely attentive but not overbearing. Dishes were quickly cleared off the table after confirming that we were finished with them. Water and drink refills were prompt and courteous.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/29/2014
    A friend and I dined for Easton Restaurant Week and were very pleased with both the selection on their special menu and the amount of food for the offered/reduced price. We often dine out during restaurant week and usually restaurants skimp out on portion sizes or quality to make up for the reduced prices, but River Grille definitely did not. We had eaten at River Grille off of their normal menu in the past and were not disappointed with our selection this year for restaurant week. Will be returning.
