    The food is good, but not great, and rather expensive for what you got. The view of the falls is fabulous! The service was excellent. The weird thing was, when I made the reservation it asked if we were celebrating anything and I said my birthday. When we arrived the hostess asked if we were celebrating anything, and, again, I said my birthday. The server, upon greeting us noted we were celebrating my birthday. And that was the last we heard of it. If they were going to repeatedly note that we were celebrating my birthday, you would think they would do something to celebrate, a birthday dessert or something like that. But there was nothing! Why did they ask so many times if they werent going to acknowledge my birthday in any way? It was very disappointing and weird. Just dont ask if anything is going to be celebrated if you dont actually care!

    The food was great and service was good in the beginning but as the evening went on we had a hard time finding our server for more drinks and to make our dessert order. Regular coffee with dessert was cold, the decaf was hot. We couldn’t find our server to warm up the coffee but when she finally came with the bill there was an error on that and we once again couldn’t find her to correct it. It was a Sat night, it did get very busy and she was very sweet but it seemed to not flow so well towards the end of the experience. We love the restaurant, the food and atmosphere and will definitely come back, but the flow of the evening could use improvement.

    Ceder plank salmon and the beef bourguignon were great! Skillet chocolate chip cookie was just soft enough to cut with a spoonful of ice cream. View was very pretty. Fresh made lemonade was good too. Super service, well-staffed when others are still limiting their seating. Vallet takes the hassle out of an impossible parking challenge.

    We found it fascinating that the restaurant has 1,800 reviews with an average rating of 4.5 stars. While 17 River Grille is a good enough restaurant, there is nothing special about it (except our waitress, who was terrific). It is medium food with little that distinguished it, save for the nice view of the falls. The evening started with a Manhattan at the bar, which had too much vermouth in it making it sweet and diluting the spiciness of the rye that I specified. At dinner the Honey biscuits were delicious, though that's not a particularly tough item to create. We each had a salad that were good, and of good size, but nothing special. I had the halibut special for the day, which was overcooked, and the vegetables and potatoes on the plate were nicely arranged, though again, just average. My wife had a NY strip steak, and we realized only after it was brought that she was not asked how she wanted it cooked - it came medium. And to finish I ordered an espresso, and curiously was brought what tasted like regular coffee in a small espresso cup. Despite our being unimpressed by the place, it was certainly busy and was attracting a bit older dinners at the earlier seating times, and younger diners as the evening wore on. Again, it is not a bad place, just nothing special, and we would be unlikely to visit again.

    I would’ve given five stars for food, except that I would’ve liked grilled cheese, but you didn’t have any bread without seeds or nuts. What about those of us who have health issues and can’t have seeds or nuts. You should at least carry some type of bread that is just plain for your customers

    The ambience here is great with the view of the falls and large window area. Service was excellent as the waiter was available but not hovering. I am not a fan of biscuits but I would recommend ordering theirs. Honey butter was great and the biscuits were hot and just the right texture. My French Onion soup was excellent not sparing of onions or cheese and my wife loved her Lobster bisque. My trout was good as were the mashed potatoes. The only thing a bit lacking were the "English Peas" that I substituted for the beans in order to try them. Very mediocre, I would not order them again. All in all a great meal. By the way the fresh squeezed lemonade was perfect, highly recommend.

    Anniversary date night. It was good but wasn’t a fan of the veggie burger. Their fries are 100% from frozen and for that kind of price, I’d expect the real deal.

    This was my first visit and I will definitely be returning! The decor is tasteful and our table overlooked the waterfall. The ambience was spectacular, the $5 valet parking was convenient, and the food was delectable. The double-cut pork chop was juicy and flavorful, the NY Strip steak melts in your mouth, while the heavenly biscuits are just that.. heavenly! Sherri was our server and provided us with excellent customer care. She even sang "Happy Birthday" when she delivered the dessert. We look forward to dining at 17 River Grille again!
