    We came for Sunday brunch. We had the fried chicken for the table which came in at $68 which honestly it wasn’t that bad as it could have fed five people. We also had some rice and beans. The food was really delicious and they did provide us with a birthday beignet. The service was very friendly and approachable, but slow. Heads up on the “mimosa service”. I assumed at $18 that this was kind of a bottomless mimosa thing, but that was not the case. It was just an $18 single mimosa. I did see a tray off to the side that looks like perhaps, and days when there was more service that they would do the mimosa pour tableside. But that was not the case.

    This place was amazing! Everything was phenomenal. From the food, to the service, to the ambiance, Everything was on point. I can't give this place enough stars. I do want to say I went to the chandelier bar prior to coming into the restaurant and it was the worst service of my life and I was hesitant about the restaurant but they couldn't be more different.

    The food and service is exceptional! My bf had the duck and andouille gumbo and it was as good as any we’ve had in Cajun country — dark flavorful Roux. I had the Crabmeat salad with charred avocado — it was lemony and delicious. Great atmosphere

    Superior service, delicious food, amazing cocktails, warm ambience. The seafood is a must-try and their take on classic New Orleans dishes like gumbo, red beans and rice is a win! We topped off our meal with baked Alaska, chocolate doberge cake and espresso martinis; all were divine! A most memorable holiday dining experience indeed. Thank you to the Miss River team!

    We dined at Miss River to celebrate a Christmas lunch with family and were very impressed with the entire experience. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating for us. Chris and the entire team that served us were extraordinary. The food was spectacular, and the desserts were especially impressive. We will definitely recommend Miss River to others.

    The waiter was disappointing. He seemed bothered to wait on us. He was difficult to hear. When we told him that he made no change to his delivery. The restaurant was out of the dish we wanted. Otherwise, the selections made were delicious. The curry had a layer of excess oil, but a great flavor. The appetizer and cocktails were excellent. I will give it another try with a larger group to order the table share selections. The Parking Valet experience was super—friendly and fast. We came in directly from the airport loaded down with luggage and gifts with no concerns about the safety of our belongings. The vibe through Four Seasons was a great welcome experience into the restaurant.

    This was our second visit prompted by the marketing of their Reveillion 5 course menu and we booked a few weeks in advance to try the special menu. However, it was surprisingly not available and the menu option was removed from the reservation and the marketing site for other Christmas menus. But of a bait and switch. Love the new hotel but will go upstairs and try Chemin next time

    Meal started with a creamy latte with peppermint cookie which was so lovely and lingered on the tongue. All the food was delish and displayed beautifully. Best bacon Ive ever had (praline bacon!) The check came with more sweets which was a lovely touch to end the experience. The hotel is gorgeous overall, I could have sat in there all day.
