- Very Reliable, Good RestaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2003VIPDined on 8/27/2014We have dined at River City Grille several times in recent years and it has always proven to be an enjoyable occasion. The food, service and atmosphere are all first rate,.Special Features:
- Love This PlaceLove2dineVIPDined on 8/27/2014We went to River City Grille to celebrate two friend's birthdays. Our waiter was terrific. He was available but not intrusive. One of our friends doesn't eat gluten and the waiter quickly brought over gluten free bread and a different menu for her. The food was delicious as always. Each one of the seven of us enjoyed our meals. We ordered different desserts as well and again we all liked what we ordered. I can't say enough good things about River City Grille.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great food and gluten free menuOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/25/2014I have been here for dinner with an all adult group but this time we had children with us. It was good for both types of dinning. The food was really good. The picky children liked their food, always a very good sign. The adults enjoyed their food very much as well. The menu is different than those of the restaurants in the area which is refreshing. And that they have a gluten free menu is a huge plus for me.There are things on their gluten free menu I have never had before because I have never found it available gluten free before. How delightful to have something new and delicious to taste and enjoy. I like the atmosphere, comfortable for adults and yet kid friendly with white table cloths.Special Features:

- River City GrilleRobbieDined on 8/19/2014The wine was delicious. We ordered the Hanging Vine Pinot Noir. We went for dinner but wound up ordering appetizers. We ordered the pizzette, mushroom ravioli, lamb dumplings, and the pan fried crab cake. The pizzette and pan fried crab cake were delicious. The mushroom ravioli and lamb dumplings were okay. I would come here again to try the brunch. Great ambiance.Special Features:

- CCPinkyOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 8/10/2014Went there quite a while ago and my husband decided to give another try. We remembered why it took so long to go back. Nothing bad to say and nothing good to say. Just BLAH!
- DinnerdindinDined on 8/7/2014When we are in town for work, this is a place everyone can agree on as the food and service hasn't let anyone down. I love the seared scallops and for dessert, the simply sweet almond cake is a must. yum!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- GypsyDined on 7/19/2014Really enjoyed this restaurant. Great menu, with many choices, and options. Fresh, locally sourced food for the most part. Gluten free menu provided. Only problem, was the organic chicken skewers that are marinated in soy sauce should not have been on the gluten free menu. But, staff was very accommodating. Highly recommended!Special Features:
- Fabulous food and serviceCAPupsVIPDined on 7/19/2014We just found River City (through Open Table) and ate here twice in one week,once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were fantastic. The menu is very diverse and interesting and everything our group ordered was fantastic. We especially loved the grilled artichoke appetizer, which was cooked in a mouthwatering white wine, garlic and lemon butter broth. But, everything else we ordered was excellent also. The service is very attentive, friendly and helpful. The location is a bit surprising, next to a service station, but you shouldn't be put off by this. Once inside, you totally forget about this.Special Features:

- Nice placeGood4brunchDined on 5/18/2014Place was nice, but waited a very long time to get served when we got there. Having a 13 month old with us didn't make that waiting any easier either. Food was very good though and the peach sangria was excellent!!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Solid Irvington spotDisappointeddinerVIPDined on 5/10/2014Went there for Mother's Day lunch and food was great. Excellent pulled pork, burgers. Good no frills service. Decor is smart and modern. Overall, very good experience. We'll be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bad choicegloriaDined on 5/6/2014Don't order the lamb. It was tough and tasteless. Others at the table enjoyed their crab cakes, salmon and chicken salad. No wines under $30; although our choice of Malbec was good in the low $30's.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great restaurant!UpnatomDined on 4/29/2014I've been coming to River City Grille for years and whether you are stopping in for brunch (with amazing cinnamon stuffed French toast), a quick bite (the best fish tacos in westchester) or to hang out at the bar, you can always count on a great meal. The staff is always very friendly, fast, and accommodating. If you are in Irvington, or any of the river towns, you should definitely put this restaurant on your list of places to frequent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Forgot about this gemJoannelizVIPDined on 4/26/2014I was there on a Saturday night and someone didn't have a reservation and couldn't wait as the place was packed at 7:30! The hostess could not have been more accommodating. She really made me feel welcome and was a was able to get me my open table reservation about 5 minutes early. The menu is great for all as they have small bites or main entrees and even have half entrees. The food was served beautifully and is very, very good. This is a great place. Just be sure to use Open Table for a reservation on a Saturday night!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Thank you River City Grille!Michele113VIPDined on 4/25/2014I recently planned a 50th birthday dinner for 10 at the River City Grille. The staff was so helpful and so accommodating, it was such a pleasure! They were gracious enough to let us bring in our own cake and when we arrived, our pre-fixe menu was printed with the name of the birthday girl and laid at each place setting. The food was absolutely delicious - they started by serving a chick-peas appetizer that was outstanding. When one of the women told the waitress she was "gluten-free", the kitchen immediately sent out a gluten-free version of that same appetizer (and also a gluten-free dessert!) Every entree was delicious. I had the shrimp and scallops and they were cooked beautifully! I would definitely dine again at River City Grille!Special Features:
- luv2eatoutDined on 4/19/2014This was our second time eating here and we all thought the food was excellent. We will surely return again!Special Features:
- Creative menuWestchesterGalVIPDined on 4/7/2014This restaurant offers such creative combinations of food, that it is a pleasure to just read the menu. Dont miss the kale salad with apricots or the apple beignets with salted caramel ice cream.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Neighborhood GemTonyDined on 4/1/2014I had been to the restaurant a few years ago. They have done a nice makeover. Clean, crisp interior. Intimate setting. Not too noisy. Our waitress was a bit of a character. We tried to joke with her and she didn't seem to get it. Nonetheless, the service was efficent. Food came out fast, too fast for us as we were in no hurry. Food was excellent. Would definitely go back again!Special Features:
- Great dining spotFoodieDined on 3/29/2014Food was so delicious - all 6 of us enjoyed our dinners & we chose specials & off the menu. The service & ambience was outstanding wonderful dining experienceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Will go backIdineAlotDined on 3/26/2014Went for a light dinner (salads) shared a pizzette which was all very good. Their house pinot grigio was perfect. Only complaint was they were out of bread pudding. One of our favorites. The waitress was wonderful, upbeat, very friendly, accommodating and professional.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We will be backOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/22/2014Found this restaurant through Restaurant Week and we plan on returning. Food was very good, portions medium sized, service very attentive and friendly. Asian shrimp and bacon wrapped pork were both tasty. Creme Brulee was delicious! Drink menu was extensive but not my taste - too whiskey/scotch like.Special Features:
- Return visit , as we so enjoyednolaVIPDined on 3/21/2014Return visit , as we so enjoyed our first visit, and the service was terrible and the food was mediocre. We were disappointed.
- Great foodprajm2Dined on 3/20/2014The food was excellent and the service was attentive. Someone in our group asked for the soup recipe and the hostess gave it to her! Great neighborhood find!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, Good ServicePsheaDined on 3/16/2014One waiter kept forgetting parts of our order, but there was a second waitress there to pick up the slack that was very responsive. The food was very tasty, but the portions of some items were very small, good for us ladies, but gentleman would likely leave still needing to eat more after a 3 course meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- noisy delayedjimboDined on 3/15/2014There was a large party of 19 that took a long time to serve and leave. This backed everything up and there were many people waiting at and around the bar making it extremely noisy. This also caused everyone to have to wait about 30 mins to be seatedSpecial Features:
- Food's good,service/ambience is notDoctorBDined on 3/15/2014Restaurant Week dinner on a Sat. night was crowded & very noisy. No greeting from anyone. Never even a perfunctory visit from owner or chef. Service was indifferent. No explanations were given unless you asked a specific question. Our menu did not include 1 item (scallops) which appeared in the on-line menu from the link in the Restaurant Week website; in its place was an Oriental stir fry shrimp dish. Butternut squash soup was good. Italian meatballs were surprisingly good. All of us liked our entrees (salmon; pork loin; chickpea cakes; Oriental shrimp), but none were memorable. Flourless chocolate cake was good but ordinary. Wine selection limited. Their parking lot is tiny; meters & a lot across the street. Maybe better on a weekday?
- Definitely worth a visitSpoonerDined on 3/15/2014We went there for the first time during restaurant week on a Saturday night. My almost 94-year-old dad LOVED the food, but was disturbed by the noise level . . . and he's slightly hard of hearing! There was a small party at a table to his right, and the sound really did reverberate. The food was really good, as was the presentation, and my dirty vodka martini capped it off nicely. We defintely plan to return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
