    This place is beautiful... Beautiful interior, beautiful view. So you want to know about the food.... We started off with grilled calamari salad. It was THE WORST calamari I have ever had. Undercooked (not grilled, more like boiled, and bland. Asked for salt and pepper to try to enjoy the salad part but was still terrible. It really was awful.. I cringe at those chewy white rubberbands and that's what it was. We didn't eat it and our waitress never noticed that we didn't eat it when she took the plate away to prep for our main entree..... I should have left/said something but I didn't... Next we had two sandwiches, which were pretty good, no complaints there. Would go back for drinks but not for food.

    The 6 of us are in our early thirties to celebrate a friend's birthday. The service was good, decor very cute and very easily located to meet a group from manhattan, queens and rockland county. They let us stay and enjoy our desert as we were the last to leave, but did not rush us. Nice vibe, good food, will most likely be back.

    We both had a bit of trouble finding this place, as there is no visible signage at street level. Just the chairs on a raised terrace gave a clue to where the door might be - signage at the door is pretty subtle. We ate out on the terrace rather than indoors on a lovely sunny day. Kind of noisy due to delivery trucks going by to bring things to the restaurant. Both ordered composed salads and iced tea. Waiter got the orders, accomodated client's request for extra ice and separate lemons with grace. Salads were tasty, hers had a hair in it, so it was returned (and handled graciously). Good ingredients, well prepared. I'd try it again.

    I can start off by saying I usually don't care at all about service when picking a restaurant, or at least it is my last consideration. But the level of service here was so poor that it genuinely ruined the experience. The waitress was completely missing in action the entire time, and the place only was like a tenth full when we were there. We actually bailed on dessert even though it was my mother's birthday because we couldn't take waiting any longer for them to get their act together. Food was ok, slightly above average for Westchester county but definitely not by any means making up for the lack of service. We wanted to like it, I suggest you wait till they get their act together or hire some more experienced professionals.

    We did an overnight getaway from NYC and this restaurant was a great find. The room is absolutely gorgeous with a spacious feel but yet warm with all the wood detail. Had some nice wines by the glass and our 11 year old son had a lovely ricotta gnudi. We had a steak. There's a beautiful riverfront park too nearby and is a great way to relax before or after the meal.

    found this spot on Open Table and loved it. It's near the river (although no view) and the best lobster salad I've had -- just meat and greens, no mayo or hotdog bun. Wonderful! We were there for lunch last Saturday and place was very quiet.

    This was our second lunch here and we got to sit outside. The view of the Hudson River and Tappan Zee Bridge was great! As for lunch...the oysters were fresh and delicious but don't overlook the cooked oysters with pancetta on them, YUM!! I got the burger with a fried egg on it and the thick-cut bacon.....AWESOME!!!!! BTW - I think Open Table needs to add a check box above for Notable Beer list. This place has that as well!!

    My family had an excellent dinner at the Rivermarket Bar and Kitchen. We went there with our starving 6 yr-old, the waiter rushed to get her order in and quickly got my husband and I a bottle of wine. With that kind-of service we knew we were in for a treat! Luckily the food is as good as the service. We had a taste of several things on the menu: lobster, swordfish and aforementioned "best lamb chops" ever. We can't wait to go back.

    Loved the look. Warm and inviting with a casual upscale vibe. Menu is farm to table type with grassfed beef and local produce. I had a delicious burratta salad and then pasta with lamb ragu. I love that you are able to get half portions of pasta. Wine list offers a nice selection by the glass, I had a beautiful Rose that went perfectly with my food. The lemon tart was the perfect ending for a summer meal. The only slight negative for me was the server was not friendly at all. The service was timely and adequate but she offered nothing to enlighten us to the menu or the restaurant. I like to be served by someone who loves what they do, it can really enhance the meal and the experience.

    Trendy and rustic....farm to table food and it's very good! We went on a Sunday-late afternoon....between brunch and dinner...it was a little awkward...but we had a great "lunch". You're overlooking the Hudson River and in a lovely development on the other side of the Tarrytown train station. A little pricey but that's what the "farm fresh" prices are these days. We're going to try DINNER next time so there is a full menu to choose from!!!

    The Rivermarket is a great place to enjoy a dinner with either friends, family or your significant other. We loved the design of this restaurant it is very tastefully done. The food was perfect from the chilled seafood platter to the hamburgers everything was delicious. Only down side was waiting 20 minutes just to get a drink at the bar. It was their busiest time and they seemed to be short staffed at the bar. But overall this is a place you must try. After dinner take a walk along the water it makes for a perfect night out.

    I've been to RM approx 5x. Reviewing July 12 (6 pm). Wine list, touted as "extensive" = bit pricey and although I tasted five Sav Blancs, I didn't find any to be exceptional. Settled on a NYS to support my local growers. It was ok, not great. The raw oyster app was not cold, nearly room temp. I told the waiter, he said "ok" and walked away. Lobster Salad app (fav of mine) has gone up in price significantly and the lettuce in the salad did not taste fresh; lobster was delicious. Lamb Slider app was dry, but edible. With all these disappointments, I was hesitant to order dessert, but the Strawberry Shortcake was absolutely fabulous. Overall, not impressed with RM any longer.

    Third time here. First time was the best experience. Love the location and the space. This time order was simple: hamburger with cheddar done medium - and that was done right. Bacon crisp - not accomplished. Hair on plate - not really necessary. French Fries cold. Service well meaning but not efficient. There are better places in our town and in the area and not as expensive. It will be awhile before we try RMB&K again.

    We understand that this restaurant is owned by the Kittlehouse in Chappaqua where we have dined in the past. Quite frankly you could find better quality food in a diner that at this restaurant. We ordered several different items at lunch and they were all horrible. The amount of food was so off-putting.

    We have been there several times for lunch and had a decent experience. Our first time for dinner was bad across the board. Right away, the four of us noticed the odd choice of music (Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd). We asked several times to have them turn and it down and even change the soundtrack. The restaurant is casual but loud college bar music was inappropriate for a pricey dinner. The food was a bigger disappointment. The short ribs were tough and lukewarm, and the swordfish was much too salty. While the server was polite enough, the manager only apologized and took half of our meals off the bill but still charged us for our drinks and dessert. Not great, considering we expected a nice meal and didn't even have an entree.

    This is not the first time we've been here, and I must admit I enjoyed the first visit more. This time, I was not just unimpressed but annoyed. Twice, while I wasn't looking at her, the waitress took my beer glass off the table prior to my being finished with my drink. She tried to do the same with my date's wine glass, but my date was paying attention and told her to stop. Never asked if we were done with our drinks or interested in whether we'd like another. Just took the glass. Bar must have been running short. As for the food, my hanger steak was totally unseasoned and virtually tasteless. For the prices charged, this restaurant has much to do to earn its rates and ratings.

    We went to Rivermarket and had the lobster salad, because I vividly remembered the fabulous taste from our last visit. Unfortunately, this time it was bland, and not at all as good. The lamb chops were fabulous, as was the strawberry sorbet. Unfortunately, the owner didn't want to hear the comment. So many people order it, he figured we must be wrong.
