Both great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of 6 and hadWe were a party of 6 and had the good fortune of snagging a corner banquette which always makes for great conversation and revelry.
The service was friendly, attentive without being intrusive, and perfectly timed. Drinks were always freshened prior to the food arrival, which is KEY
in my book. The food was diverse and inventive. The meat and potato lovers were as pleased as those enjoying more of an ethnic flavor.
We were old friends catching up, and never felt rushed. Start to finish, a very enjoyable evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNive Anniversay DinnerWe ate there for the first time as a Plsn B anniversary meal. We were very pleasantly surprised. It's a cozy place with very friendly, attentive, but not bothersome service.

Definitely would return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Quality Without PretensionRiver City is the rare combination of a neighborhood restaurant and "foodie's choice." Friendly staff who know their clientele if one is a "regular" but are warm and friendly to strangers. The eclectic menu reflects the owner's interest in different cuisines and combines "comfort" foods with some more edgy choices, while not being so extensive that it dilutes quality. And the ingredients are always fresh and top-notch.
In short, unpretentious quality. Well worth the money and a drive to Irvington, even if you are not a "neighbor."3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was excellent. EveryoneDinner was excellent. Everyone choose from the evening's specials. Butternut squash soup was outstanding, as were the all of our entrees.
Attention was paid to my husband's request for gluten free. Wait staff was prepared with information to help in the selection.
Looking forward to our next visit.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
