    I'm so happy we discovered The RiverHouse Restaurant. It is a perfect spot to meet friends and catch up while relaxing on the patio overlooking the boats and watching the sun set. We have never been disappointed in the food and drinks. There is a a nice selection, something for everyone. My husband's favourite is the Jamaican rum ribs and mine is the warm seafood salad. Save room for dessert as the selection is amazing. Service was great. We never felt rushed. We plan to try the brunch soon.

    We went here on the night before Valentine's Day to avoid the rush. Overall, it was a good experience. The only negative was our waitress who was a little absent minded and not the quickest in terms of her service. There was no reason for the slow service as it was only about half full. The food was above average and the atmosphere was pleasant. The views of the river during the day are great. I would recommend the River House. It has good food, fair prices and the view as mentioned is outstanding.

    Our family of 4 enjoyed a very nice Christmas Eve meal together at this restaurant. Service was very good even though the room was full and it seemed they were running a little short staffed. The food was excellent and we certainly will return again. Our last meal here was in the warmer summer months and we were able to sit out on the deck enjoying the river views and sunshine. Highly recommend for any season.

    On June 22nd my husband and I dined at the River House. We had a window table inside. When I sat down I grabbed the arms of my chair to move the chair closer to the table and the arms of the chair moved with me and away from the rest of the chair. Later on in the evening, my husband had a similar experience with his chair.

    Our meals were great, but since it was Father's Day, I was surprised there wasn't a special 'dinner' menu and that the tables weren't set a little fancier, ie. table clothes perhaps. Apparently, we missed out....there had been a Father's Day brunch/buffet had we come earlier in the day - I'm sure it was delicious. It was a very quiet evening, very few people in the restaurant - our reservations were at 7:15pm We'll be back to enjoy another meal soon. Thanks.

  • Great Patio!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/16/2013
    This was our first visit for Father's Day brunch. Sitting on the patio on such a beautiful day was perfect. The buffet had mainly breakfast items so at 1:45pm I would have preferred more lunch type items. However, the freshly BBQd salmon and salads were very good. The bakery items were also very good as there is an in-house pastry chef there. If you are with a large group and want separate bills, please make sure you tell your server that at the beginning so you will avoid delays in paying your bill. Although we were asked at the time of reservation if we would want separate bill, that message did not get passed along to the server. Overall we had a good experience and would go back again.

    Good food, their prices seem to be going up to the point where there are better alternatives. Service was a little slow and our meals were just "plopped" on the table without any time or effort to make sure it was correct. Also, my wife's tea came with curdled milk and it took 3 returns to get it right!!! By the time it was corrected 30 minutes passed, she already finished her desert and it was time to go. And, they charged her for it!!! Its things like this that make or break. There are enough good restaurants out there. So the three times I've been there, 2 had issues. Would I go back? Only for a quick pub snack.

Good size portions. The other had a Cesar Salad with Chicken she enjoyed it as well. The service was friendly, and we were not rushed.

    A splendid dining experience for our family of four from when we arrived and were seated in a lovely view table overlooking the water until we left. The Sunday Brunch was the best and we have enjoyed it often with a full range of hot and cold food items topped off by an exciting choice of desserts. The staff went out of their way to make our dining experience enjoyable and unforgetful. The chef's crew were up earlly preparing only the freshest of foods into the tastiest of dishes. Friendliness was shown by our servers at all times. The interior decor of the restaurant complements the river setting. We are always surprised by the variety of choices which provide solutions to dietary concerns and have mant gluten free options.

    I had the surf and turf and the lobster tail was not good at all. The Steak and vegetables were very good. I do not think the tails were fresh or possibly cooked way in advanced. For the price they charged for dinner i would have expected a better lobster tail. Their specials were confusing since if you ordered off their regular menu you ended up getting a better deal. I would not go back since i would not know what i would be getting if i did.

    Seeing I booked a reservation 2 weeks in advance asking for a window seat I was very disaapointed when I arrived and my party was situated in the middle of the restaurant. One of my guests has hearing aides that picked up all the noises in the restaurant so was really unable to hear the conversation at our table. We asked for calamari and was told you were all sold out,waited 1 1/2 hours to eat and 2 of our orders did not come at all as your cook forgot to cook the steaks so my children had to get something they really didnt want.the only thing i enjoyed was the waitress sence of humour. will not recommend this restaurant and thats disappointing since i have aten there before and enjoyed it.

    The food was great as usual but the service was not. Obviously the restaurant was short staffed so it made for a long wait. Our waitress was very apologitic and we had no problem with her but she did miss bringing us bread, which we finally asked for and finally asked again and got at the end of the meal. We were disappointed as this was the first time for the other couple with us. Not a good recommendation for them.

    I was very surprised that there were so few people dining since it was Thanksgiving Day! Hmmm! Maybe there is a reason. The turkey dinner was lukewarm, the pumpkin pie was stale (the whipped cream, though in copious amounts, was fake), no one offered bread to start with (though the couple at the next table got bread, but along with the starter - that is not when it usually comes, right?), the room was cold etc. It was clear that the server was new - no harm to that, but no one was checking to see how she was doing. Overall, a rather disappointing experience

    The patio was beautiful. It overlooks the south arm of the Fraser. This restaurant accommodates large groups and they have a private room that seats at least 2 dozen people - great feature if you're looking to host a group. If you're in a small party when a big one has booked, however, be prepared to wait a while for your food.

The setting is lovely, especially on a summer afternoon, the food is very good and the service is friendly and efficient. One member of our group has difficulty swallowing and the staff is discrete, considerate and accommodating about the special preparation needed for her meal.

    Dined on 5/13/2012
    We made a Mother's Day Brunch visit. We came away very disappointed. The sparse buffet brunch was presented on tables which were crammed into part of the pub and the area the servers normally use. The harried staff and the guests were forced to maneuver through crowded hallways, past each other, serving tables, waiter's stations, and carry plates of food at the same time! It was very poorly laid out and the restaurant obviously not able to deal with this type of affair. Instead of arranging the food tables in a separate room, they chose to cram in a few more tables. The food was simply OK and disappointing for a "special" occasion. No special flower for Mom. At $29 a guest, I feel very let down. Not recommended for brunch buffet!
