The space is open and airy, with lots of natural light, and honey-colored wooden tables and chairs scattered throughout. An open raw bar in one corner, flanked by a chic martini bar across the room. And the entire place is smoke free! Our raw bar features at least 7-8 daily Oyster choices, available individually or by the half-dozen or dozen. Enjoy a perfectly chilled (to 5 degrees!) flavored vodka from our one of a kind "Chill Tower"!

Diner Reviews
  • "We met our young adults for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Tapas menu suited us perfecty. Martinis were really fantastic and great beer selection. Our waitress was very nice but not experienced and as a result, rushed at times: choosing our drinks, food, finishing our plates. Other than that, it's a convenient location of the PA turnpike near West Chester and food and drinks were to our liking."

  • "I had heard about this restaurant from many of my friends and their recommendation to dine here was a good one! I especially enjoyed the beet salad, hummus and sea bass tapas. The restaurant also has a very nice selection of craft beers on tap. Service was friendly and attentive."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Nice place, nice (but not great) brunch, nice atmosphere, good friendly service at a reasonable price.There was nothing outstanding, most things were good, the pork wrapped in bacon at the carving station looked better than it tasted."

  • "Had a fabulous brunch buffet for a reasonable price. Great selection, everything fresh all the time. They even have Oysters on the Half Shell!!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The tapas were varied leaving everyone a delicious option (or two). Certainly a great group meal allowing sharing and conversation over not too small plates."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Very disappointed. We came for the brunch buffet with high hopes. Unfortunately, the staff was slow to restock....the fruit platter remained empty throughout our stay. The cheese platter was fried out. Vegetables on the buffet were soggy...overcooked. Not worth the 17.95/person"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "All in all a "good" dinner and a good time with friends, including two kids. Food was good to very good depending. Flatiron steak was great. Only comment was the waiter. Nice guy but very slow and inattentive in general. Would go back for drinks at the bar."

  • "I took a group of co-workers out for lunch and they loved the atomosphere and food. A great neighborhood gem for sure. The service was a little slow though."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "I love the concept of tapas style dining and even though it's not as economical in the United States as it is in Spain, the 3 for $20 deal at Riverstone is one of the best values I've come across. We tried about four dishes in all and either really liked or loved every one. The service was a bit slow, especially for a quiet Sunday night, but we absolutely loved the pork tacos and the apple walnut flatbread. I would definitely recommend Riverstone to others in the area."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed Riverstone. It was not your typical menu and the small plate or tapas approach with a variety of choices is preferable to the enormous portions of some restaurants. We certainly will come back again."

  • "Got a table on Valentines Day evening at the last minute. It worked out great - the bar has nice choices of wine, beer, and martinis. Great for a date since you could have a good drink with interesting small plates or oysters to share. The Fall Salad is excellent, as well as the scallops. Seems like the specialty is tapas, but we did not try them."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Valentine's night. Usually good food, but due to volume perhaps, just average. Will return."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I've been here twice and both times the food was just fantastic. Their specialty is tapas which basically means smaller dishes so you can try 2 or 3 different items. But it's also great when you don't want a huge meal. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "I had lunch with two business associates. The lunch menu is varied and there is a good range of choices. I would definitely eat here again and will try dinner sometime."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Brunch was same old, same old... waffles were tepid and hard, fruit was average, sweets were store bought and average. Breads a little stale. All in all --I don't plan on going back for brunch, this was my second time and nothing changed."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "We were seated in the way back corner?? not sure why because there were plenty of seats. probably to even out the patrons with the servers but the open area is preferable. That said its a buffet for brunch and we decided they were some of the absolute best omelets we've ever had, done perfectly! Perfect beef, rare and tasty. Fruit should be better, hard in winter. The sliced cheesecake was very light and delicious. Good server, attentive and friendly. Great time will return soon!"
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "Food was very good. The 2 tapas I had were just right for a dinner."

  • "Great food. We went during brunch where they have a buffet. We decided to order off of the menu and it was very good."

  • "We had brunch and it was wonderful. We took our sons and they absolutely loved the brunch buffet. It was a great time out with the family and we would come back again for dinner. Wait staff is very friendly, attentive and helpful."

  • "We enjoyed the tapas and cocktails - all wonderfully crafted. Everything was amazing and we tried almost evertyhing!!! The only exception was the salmon which was very good, but better served lox style to easier enjoy on a crostinis - rather than the gernerously portioned filet style. We will be back again!"

  • "Friend and I had a great experience at this restaurant. Great oyster bar selection and the tapas were fantastic. Would recommend highly and plan to visit again when in town! Thank you for such a great food experience."

  • "I planned a birthday party for 12 here and our reservation was for 8pm and asked guests to arrive promptly since we were a large party. Well, we ended up waiting 30 minutes for our table to even be ready and the hostess was less than apologetic blaming the party that was still seated there. No manager came over to offer any alternatives but just kept us sitting there until further notice. When we were finally shown to our table, there were only 10 seats and when I went told the hostess, she gave me attitude saying the reservation said 10 OR 12 people. Did she or did she not have 30 minutes to count how many people were on our party??? There are too many other restaurants with amazing service so needless to say, I will not be back!"

  • "Our second recent visit. The food was creative and high quality, and the service was personal, personable, courteous and knowledgeable."

  • "We had not been back to Riverstone for several years, but, happily, things have not deteriorated as can happen. Rather, the food was even more imaginative with greater attention to detail. And my friends tell me that no one does better oysters. For dessert we luxuriated in the bacon crab tapa pizza. Yum!"

  • "Great food specials, excellent service and great entertainment made for a wonderful New Years Eve dinner."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "By adopting the currently chic tapas or small plate approach, Riverstone is able to offer small-ER portions for smaller prices. This is the major attraction. The portions are, in fact, not small and this may be a further plus for some. We have been coming here for some time and are almost always able to find something interesting. This is not fine dining, but you will not be hungry when you leave."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Took a group of people here for dinner for Christmas Eve and was quite pleasantly surprised. I'd heard for some time that they have one of the best brunches around and they had space for our group where others didn't. We had to call shortly before arrival to change our reservation time and try to add another couple which would freak out a lot of restaurants on Christmas Eve but they managed it with little fuss. Our waiter was excellent and the service was great until shortly before we left when his section became extremely crowded and there was little or no backup help for him. Certainly not the waiter's fault. Food was excellent and the bill was surprisingly reasonable for eight people. Highly recommend them and look forward to brunch!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "This popular restaurant offers a lot: A variety of offerings in portion servings that are just right. A good value with its moderate pricing and service has always been great: Attentive and nicely paced. The martini list is extensive and fun. So is the raw bar list of oysters."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Nost food was tasty and good variety of choices. Some items were not kept as hot as expected though, Can recommend the omlet bar. Roast beef was not very tender. Noise level was awful with loud music making conversation difficult, Anyone with hearing impairment shoud not go there. Server was thoughful and helpful."

  • "Our service was excellent, our food terrific. Love this place. My only complaint is that there was a ton of families with small children there. not much they can do about that but it does ruin the date night atmosphere"

  • "First time eating at Riverstone Cafe. I had a burger, but their tapas seemed amazing. Not too happy with the service, had to ask for a second glass of water, & it was awhile until the server came back again to check on us. Wasn't crowded at all either - we had a reservation for 6 pm on Monday. Definitely could tell it was a new establishment which was a good thing! Loved the ambiance & decor. Only suggestion would to put more items on the menu that are not tapas."
