    I ordered a chicken salad for lunch and it was bland with no flavor. I could not taste the difference between the chicken and the beans. Service was mediocre, as usual. The owner was more attentive than the wait staff. Pretty sad.

    Salad with fava beans came without. Decent wine menu but Red wine was served too chilled. Braised short ribs were only meh...a bit tough and dry and I expected better flavor. Good ambiance, however. Came with family of five at 6:30 on Columbus Day and place was lively and was beautifully candle lit with lots of industrial/ rustic appeal.

    A favorite of ours, close to our house, nicely decorated, and good ambience. Food is good, the Lobster Linguini Neri is one of my favorites, The Short Ribs are also good. Service has improved a great deal at the tables since their opening; bartenders are not very good, disinterested, and not very friendly. I think management could improve their social skills.

    the menu is limited for someone who is not a meat eater. Although Scallops were good, they were served with greens. Boring! Nothing special and pricey. Salmon, pricey, eat that at home frequently. Calamari appetizer had lots of greens, minimal calamari -- tasteless! Mussels appetizer, huge size, never ate that before, Also, quite tasteless. Very expensive dinner for 4 -- not really worth it.

    I was so looking forward to celebrating my parents' 53rd wedding anniversary at one of Westchester's most lauded new dining spots. I can't remember ever leaving a meal so angry and disappointed.The food was the biggest let-down. Tasteless and over-cooked are the most kind adjectives I can think of for the entrees. All 5 of them -- each different. The service was unforgivably slow and inattentive. The noise level was deafening. There were several large groups, all of which were seated at square tables, (the 1 round table was reserved for "very special guests" ...unless they get a different menu with higher prices, I'm pretty sure my party of 5 is just as special). And if I'm paying $70/person, my server should not be dressed in a t-shirt.

    I love the fresh ingredients from local farms and waters. The fish was very fresh (I had swordfish) and the short rib was amazing. One footnote.... We have been several times and found it to be super excellent Thursday fri and Saturdays. When we went on a Sunday evening it was a bit off on all areas. When we mentioned it we were told the primary chef was off that night as was the manager. So do a Thursday thru Sat and enjoy!

    From the moment we entered the restaurant we had impeccable service! This experience was outstanding in everyway. The hostess to our server, Robert (who was phenomenal) to the bartender. We cannot say enough about the service. The food was delicious. The presentation was lovely-food was very fresh-flavors blended exceptionally. A superb dining experience and lots of fun. This spot is a must visit!

    The restaurant is new and open space with a nice outdoor seating area. Service was excellent from the hostess, bartender, waitstaff, and even the woman behind the counter of the market. Food was excellent, we enjoyed salads, scallops and mussels which were all perfect except for the fact that the market salad was a large bowl full of whole greens and a little difficult to eat. My companion ordered a drink off the cocktail list that she did not like and it was replaced with something else and removed from the bill. No questions asked. Dessert was efficiently packed up for us to go. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Went for an early lunch with friends so the restaurant was quiet. Everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful. The menu was very interesting and it was hard to decide. I loved my black lobster linguini and even though there wasn't a side salad on the lunch menu the waitress brought one for the table to share. There were lots of yummy things in it like pretty little potatoes, radishes and everyone commented on how delicious the dressing was. Garnished witha crusty bread and dreamy ricotta cheese. Desserts were exceptional.

    I can't say enough about the food. Everything was truly delicious - the gnudi and heirloom tomato salad, then the scallops, steak frites and gnocchi....and topped off by sharing the butter pecan ice cream sandwich, smores and peach cobbler. All wonderful! I appreciated the innovativeness of the mushroom boards lining the ceiling and the old pine floors....but something felt sterile about the restaurant. Maybe the fact that the tables are all lined perfectly, that the chairs all look the same, that the restaurant is a perfect square. I wondered if the tables were less identical and more "rustic", it would feel warmer....

    Our food (all lobster) was terrific. The service was fine. But the noise level is beyond "energetic" -- it makes conversation below the shout level impossible, and the restaurant was far from full. We hope they find a way to fix this, because otherwise it's a great place.

    We went to the Rivermarket for Sunday brunch and were very happy with our meals. The lobster salad, a standout, was prepared without mayo and was fresh and delicious. Wine pourings were generous and service was attentive. The view is inviting and outdoor seating is available. We will gladly return.

    Not a pleasant experience from start to finish. The hostess was rude and acted as if her seating us was an imposition on her busy schedule. The food was not terrible, but scallops were significantly undercooked. The waitstaff was friendlier than the hostess, but obviously had no interest in being there. I'm very disappointed because the space and location are nice.

I had Maine mussels in lobster bisque for starter- large enough for a main course. Swordfish over polenta was very good and well cooked but for $38 the portion of fish was very small

    I really liked the design and the spaciousness of the River-market restaurant and the food was good. My only negative comment is that the restaurant is extremely noisy. It was not even full yet the noise level was unacceptable to me. The server was attentive, inexperienced, yet tried hard to please. I really liked the design and it is quite an attractive place, I don't know if I will go back because of the noise level.

    We had a great dinner and were all very happy with how our meals were prepared. We arrived a bit early, during the shift changeover so it was a little "confused" but after we received our drinks, we were well taken care of by a professional, sharp server, Jenn. She was attentive, energetic, and happy! We will definitely go back as we meet friends in the Tarrytown area.

    I have dined here about 6 times before, food was excellent & service was okay. This time food was salty...we both had the lamb sliders and the lobster roll. My lamb slider was good but my lobster roll was was beyond salty. My friend said his lamb slider and lobster roll was salty. The service was ok. I raved about the food before we got there, I was very disappointed. I may try it one more time only because previous experiences were good. For the price, the food should be always good and so should the service...consistency very important. We dined outside on a very patio.

    Have made reservations through Open Table and dined at restaurant several times. My reviews have consistently given the restaurant high ratings in all categories. I'm wondering if it's necessary for you to continue asking a frequent diner at the same restaurant for a review each and every time. In my view it's a waste of my time and you shouldn't be using the same customer's input over and over for your stats. I suggest you take a look at the number of times and the frequencies with which you seek the same client's/customer's ratings and perhaps consider modifying your approach.

    Having dined at River Market several times in the past we decided to take my soon to be 94 year old father there for a special treat. Unfortunately the appalling service overshadowed the quality of the food, which is decent. In the past, the dining experience at River Market although pricey, was a good one. No longer. Sadly, there will be no further visits here.

    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.

    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.
