  • "Great scenic waterfront view, great outdoor dining, great food, and friendly service !"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "A beautiful site with great food and warm friendly service. Walking along the Riverwalk adjacent to the restaurant before or after dinner is an added benefit. As we arrived early, we decided to walk through historic Yorktown which was just above the riverside location of the restaurant."

  • "Outstanding, as always! This place never disappoints. We brought friends this time and they were very impressed!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "As we arrived, we were offered a selection of wines which were being highlighted. We selected a red and a white. Also some cheese to go along with the wine. Nice touch. We were taken to a table with a view of the water. The menu was quite nice with a good selection.I had the crab stuffed flounder which was terrific. My wife had shrimp.The service was excellent. Our server Amanda was personable and attentive. The location of the restaurant is right on the York River and offers good views of the beach anf the Gloucester side."

  • "Ambience: at baseball games now the annouce for men to remove their hats for the National Anthem. I'd like to see a sign asking men to remove their hats while dinning."

  • "We found this place on Open Table, we were very happy. The view over the York river was fantastic. The food was very different and very good. I like to go to places that offer a different take on menus. I had the salmon patties, they were very tasty. My husband had the pastrami sandwich and was equally as happy. Nice selection of beers. Price was a little high, but worth it. Would recommend it to anyone."

  • "We had heard about Riverview for years and finally decided to make the 1.5 hour drive. We were not disappointed! The food was great and the prices very reasonable. The servings were so large that we took enough home for dinner too!"

  • "We spent the afternoon in Yorktown (Segway tour:)) and ended the day with dinner at Riverwalk Restaurant. They have the best calamarie I've ever had!!! Great service"

  • "While visiting our daughter for the Easter holiday, we decided to eat Easter dinner at a restaurant near her college. Great food. Relaxed. We took our time going through many courses.Everything was superb. We might be going again for this Easter Dinner again."

  • "We celebrated a birthday at Riverwalk Sunday evening. Our river view table was lovely. Menu selections and the $20 btl of VA wine were delish. The waitress presented the birthday girl with a martini glass of ice cream, fruit and mini zeppolis. Very thoughtful."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "My fiance and I visited again recently after a 6-month hiatus. We used to come here for Sunday brunch. They had a diverse menu of excellent food. Since our last visit however, the entire menu has changed. Brunch is now almost an afterthought. Barely a half-dozen dishes and a selection of less-than-appealing fancy omelets make it a disappointing menu selection. Until they revamp it again (or take it back to the way it was), we will not be back for brunch."

  • "This restaurant is in the perfect setting right on Yorktown beach. We were seated by the window with a gorgeous ocean view. Server very knowledgable and polite. Then the food came out and it was so delicious. We truly enjoyed the whole experience at Riverwalk, the food, service and the beautiful scenery."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We've been dining at the Riverwalk for years. It continues to be consistent and a comfortable place to dine --- whether in the restaurant or bar area. We will certainly return as our schedule brings us back to Yorktown."

  • "I have eaten here on several occasions, but never have used the "Open Table" reservations system it was great and very easy and when I arrived they had all the information there."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Seafood restaurants in a tourist attraction typically yield low expectations. This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Bruschetta was excellent. Entrees were executed extremely well. Save room for desert!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We have eaten at this restaurant several times as well as next door (same owner). The food is fabulous but they could all use some customer service training. Bring in someone to teach this and your restaurants will soar! Our waitress did not ask about drinks until after we ordered our food, did not get us water, and once we did ask and get it we never got a refill. It was my birthday which we mentioned on the reservation and in person with no response whatsoever. Good restaurants have always done something for us, some as little as a birthday wish to a free dessert or drink. Take some lessons! Being greeted at the door warmly would be nice and we rarely saw a smile on anyone's face - it is terrible to work there???"

  • "Stopped in on a quiet afternoon from out of town, looking for a crab cake. Found a beautiful place on the water on a blustery day so we enjoyed the view, and the delicious crab cake, as well as tomato basil soup loaded w/ crab. They even went the distance and helped us out with a beautiful bottle of Prosecco we needed for a gift. Good food, great service, super nice people. GO!"

  • "This is in a fantastic location in the heart of historic Yorktown overlooking the York River. The restaurant is somewhat modern but still very warm and welcoming. The food is average and you are definitely paying for the location as much as you are for the food. I had the Catch of the Day -- grouper. It was good, but nothing fantastic. The service was outstanding. All in all, I would recommend it to someone who was in the area looking for a waterfront dining spot."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Outstanding all around for a special occasion. A little pricey, at least for me, for everyday dining, but worth every penny on an anniversary, birthday, Valentine's Day, etc. Outstanding and personal service by a very experienced wait staff. My only complaint on the last visit was they ran out of two of the main dishes on the menu. Granted, it was on day 2 of the 2-day Valentine's menu, but our reservation was for 6:45,not at 9:00...a little disappointing from that respect since both items were our first choice for our meals. A very nice romantic atmosphere."

  • "My wife and I ate at the Riverwalk for Valentines Day. The food was great and we had a view of the York River"

  • "thank you for a helping me with a very romantic night it was very nice!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Our food was excellant and so was the service. We couldn't have asked for better. It really made our Valentine's Day special. We will surely be back again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend here for valentines day, and it was a great experience for us both. It was both our first time and we enjoyed it. We were a little upset because it wasn't a full menu to choose from that night, but everything else was great. Even though on open table it says $30 and under, I personally felt that it was $30 and over. Maybe it was because we went for valentines day."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Came here for Valentine's day with my fiancé and it was excellent! They gave both of us a glass of champagne as soon as we arrived. We were seated immediately and given a great explanation of their special menu for the evening. With it being Valentine's Day, I expected the restaurant to be really crowded, but it wasn't! It was still quiet with several empty tables around us! It was delicious. I'm definitely going back next year!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Did not meet expectations. Veal chop: Very dry, sauce was bland, could be found at any ordinary Italian restaurant for 1/3 the price. Ciopino: Small portion, not much seafood in it, bland, expensive. It would have been nice to include some bread for the sauce. We wanted the food to be better."

  • "For a gray day this one was a great find. Service and wine was excellent, food was great, no complaints."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Came in with friends. Party of four. Two of us ordered pork on pork. Had it back in the fall and was beyond great. It's supposed to be pulled pork and pork belly. This time they subbed panchetta which is basically circle cut bacon. It's not even close to pork belly. My friends plate didn't even have it period. So I sent it back and told the Manager the problem. She had then redo it . Came back out the same way. No pork belly. By this time my wife and cousin were done eating. Their dishes were okay but just Okay. With the prices here you expect way more. Very disappointed and it's now off the fine dining list."

  • "Other than the hair found on the soup upon delivery, the food was fantastic. The concierge was very gracious!"

  • "Really great waterfront location. Excellent food, (as expected), EXCEPTIONAL service. Our server was attentive and friendly, yet never underfoot. She kept our drinks and tummies full and was almost a ninja in being quick and quiet. She really made me believe she cared about us as customers and our needs. Awesome restaurant ! Fantastic views. Fantastic service. Take your date.. She'll be happy ;) (Just a note.. Brunch was $50+ with tip.. Not a cheap breakfast spot..but awesome, none the less)"

  • "A bit too expensive for the casual crowd for dinner, but a great place to bring clients/candidates. Very friendly and helpful staff."

  • "The Riverwalk Restaurant on the water at Yorktown is a wonderful setting for a relaxing, delectable meal. The ambience is friendly and the decor elegant in an understated way. The service is efficient and pleasant. The menu is diverse, especially in its seafood offerings, and creative in its presentations. A great place for couples, families or groups who are looking for an unrushed dining experience with lots of variety and a location that offers water-views for miles. Sunday brunch-time is especially recommended by this reviewer!"

  • "It was a very cold day, and people were staying home in droves in Va. I was meeting a friend I hadn't seen for awhile at Riverwalk. We had the good fortune to have Audrey as our server. she is so professional, knowledgeable and considerate. Our order came quickly, but we had so much to talk about that we lingered over our coffee. We never felt rushed. It was very quiet, the scenery was beautiful, and it was hard to believe it was 17 degrees outside, as the ambiance is so very warm inside."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "We really enjoyed both our meal and the experience. Our food was perfectly cooked (had Salmon with lobster and shrimp - all were cooked to perfection). The service was wonderful - great attention to detail - but not hovering. Really enjoyed the view also. Noise level was minimal. Will definitely go there again!"

  • "We were finishing a week in the Williamsburg area and wanted an upscale restaurant for the night. Since it was January wanted something inside with a view. This was a wonderful place to finish up our trip. We had a table by the crackling wood fireplace and view of the river. Food was great and service wonderful.We live most of the year on the coast of Maine and are not always a fan of seafood prepared in restaurants. They hit the mark. You will pay for this dining experience, but it is worth it. Each night they also appear to have a special that is a great deal."

  • "We had a great time on New Years Eve at the Riverwalk. The food was great and the service was wonderful! We will definitely go back again!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I don't mind paying for great ambience food, etc. though the food tasted good the ambience was stuffy and I hated the ugly metal chairs. We didn't so much even see the water from our table. We may as well have been anywhere. I thought all the waitstaff were friendly and helpful. It seems to be a restaurant geared toward the older set."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We visit this restaurant every chance we get, especially on special occasions. New Year's Eve was a real treat. We were given complimentary champagne while we waited on our table. Even with a full house our meal did not take long at all. I could tell our waiter was not the most experienced, but he did a satisfactory job. You cannot go wrong spending your time in this establishment."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We arrived at 6:00 pm, the time of our reservation, and were seated by a window. Very nice. Our waiter was attentive, a little too chatty. We had to wait for the third member of the party, and we told him that, so he was probably just being friendly. We ordered the arugula artichoke pizza appetizer. The waiter brought the arugula, beet and pear salad with pomegranate and bacon bits dressing and spiced pecans. The arugula was limp, the two pears were miniature, and there was no sign of bacon bits. We ate it but we should rightly have returned it and asked for what we ordered. My grilled chicken was standard. A half of the portion of risotto would have been more than enough. Great view of the river."

  • "This was my first time dining at Riverwalk. I had heard great things about it so my fiance and I went to check it out with my future mother -in-law. It was delicious!! It's a beautiful restaurant with a great view of the river! We actually decided (and booked) our rehersal dinner there for next fall! We can't wait for all friends and family from out of town to experience Riverwalk! Great food and great service! The prices, though may seem a bit high, are very reasonable for the quality of food and the portions you are served! Can't wait to go back soon!"
