  • "Return visit , as we so enjoyed our first visit, and the service was terrible and the food was mediocre. We were disappointed."

  • "I 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!"

  • "Went 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."

  • "Found 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."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The 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!"

  • "Restaurant 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?"

  • "One 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."

  • "We 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."

  • "There 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 seated"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The entire experience was very good. The food was excellent. The service was attentive."

  • "When we first drove by this restaurant we were't sure where to park and the exterior wasn't very impressive so we initially almost made a huge mistake by considering whether we should try somewhere else for dinner, but luckily we stayed. We are accustomed to NYC quality food and was thrilled with our meal. The food choices were very interesting and everything was delicious and prepared to perfection. We also thoroughly enjoyed the classic drink menu which added to the uniqueness of this restaurant. We left very happy and eager to return!"

  • "River City Grille recently renovated their interior, completely redid their menu and change most of the staff… all to the better. It was always a good eatery, but now it's really a gem. Good and varied menu, interesting and tasty bar menu and attentive, friendly staff. It's now one of my regular venues for a no-hassles, delicious dinner or some wine and bar snacks."

  • "I usually love the place but my visit this past Sunday was not that great. I felt that even though it was not that crowded, the service could have been better and more professional. Also, we ordered filet migion and the piece was very small, not worth the price."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "My first time visiting since the renovation. Great food and service. Loved our sweet waitress (wish I asked for her name). The roasted vegetable quinoa and horseradish-crusted salmon were delicious! Will definitely be back."

  • "Returned to River City this weekend and had another delicious meal. Great food, great service, great menu - and the resto is really pretty! Highly recommend."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Food too long to come out and when it did, it was not presented with a smile. The manager apologized for the delay but something to keep us busy [like a side dish] would have been nice to ease the hunger pain. The restaurant was busy was not overly so."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "I've been dining here for many years and I've enjoyed every meal I've had; I can't say that about most other restaurants I've dined at often"
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "The food was delicious but very pricey and portions were small. No reason to charge $26 for a moderate size bowl of pasta with 2 meatballs and a piece of pork. Alcohol was well over prized too. $10 for absolute and cranberry?? The staff was friendly and good!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Loved the new renovation but when we were there, a large party of 10 was in the front room. It was very noisy. I think large parties are best suited for the back room. The food was good, as usual."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "This was our first time at the River café, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and would go back, and recommend to friends."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Nice menu, nice presentation, good flavor and fresh. Loved that the waitress offered us the recipe of the delicious butternut squash soup!"
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Great food! Will be going back for sure. Great find!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "while it was fine, i remember the food being better in the past. The selection was somewhat limited and the shrimp (on the risotto) did not taste fresh. Everything just seemed more ok than really good which is how i remember it. I'm not sure if their renovation impacted the kitchen or they lost key staff."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "We had gone to this restaurant about a year ago and liked and and thought the decor a bit "strange" but funky. I didn't dislike it, but thought that the quality of the food deserved a bit classier ambiance. And they have done it and it looks great. The food is just as good and the menu is a lot better, too. It was SO big last year; I felt like I was in a diner. Actually, it did seem much like a diner last time, but with really good food. Now this place is just perfect! New menu, same great food choices, beautiful decor, friendly staff. I just wish it were closer to my house!"

  • "There was a big party the night we ate there so we opted to sit in the bar room where there were a few tables for dinner. Food was good. We have been here before and enjoyed it. They were quite accommodating for a gluten allergy. Bartender was our waiter and made a few mistakes but nothing too crazy. We enjoyed it! The people we ate with didn't enjoy the duck dumplings. The scallops are delicious."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "We had a 7:30 reservation and didn't get seated until closer to 8. We stood in the crowded bar waiting, with waiters trying to get by us. The waitress seemed in over her head, perhaps she needed more support. But there were 3 host/manager staffers standing in the front of the restaurant, made you wonder why they didn't jump in and help the wait staff. Food was good, but not as good as I remembered from years back."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Went with another couple for restaurant week. Service was impeccable and food wonderfully prepared. If only there was something management could/would do about the very noisy table of 8a few tables away who were so, um, festive that their conversation was offensively loud the entire time, except when their food came."
