    Difficult; hard to find Entrance...really off putting...Why...??? Prompt greeting at door appreciated...! On Scenic River Walk which was lovely...location, location, location...!!! Good choice of seating arriving at 11am, day of Fort Christmas Market. Venue has outdated features; like fabric seat covering in booths making this a difficult to clean area; staining on seats= : ( Parking can be challenging...got last spot in a very tight location. Server inexperienced; although good listener he took price of Green Tea off my bill because of his lack of experience which was appreciated. Smoked Salmon Eggs Beni needed to be served ASAP; cooled too much...side of hash browns very disappointing as was garnish of one slice of twisted orange. Believe a smaller plate or better use of plate needed to show quality of kitchen. Thanks for asking & Merry Christmas & Best Wishes for 2022...! Karen

    They no longer have the old menu. The food comes from the Fort Pub and Grill. It’s not the dining it used to be. Don’t go unless you want to go to the Fort Pub. They are one in the same.

    One server serving 25 people (several tables) and it was her 2nd day - service was so slow, took 2 hours to get food and then we were waiting 20+ minutes to get our bills which didn't come out right the first time, of course. Made us late for other plans and we had to miss them. Food was lackluster and overpriced. Would not come here again or recommend it.

    The overall experience was great. Our server was excellent. She was attentive, had a great sense of humour and was very personable. She set expectations right at the beginning by saying that they were short staffed and she will do her best but there could be a bit of a wait for service. We appreciated giving us the heads up as we were willing to accommodate the lack of service with patience and understanding. The restaurant industry is having a very difficult time finding staff let alone good staff. We did not find the service lacking at all! Our server was working her butt off and she did it with an amazing attitude. The food was excellent! From the appies to desert. The drinks were also on point and we'll priced! I highly recommend giving the Rail & River a try.

    I can’t really review this restaurant as you took my booking and reservation when the restaurant wasn’t even open. I have no idea why you confirmed my noon reservation when the restaurant didn’t open until 3 PM. Very annoyed.

    We chose this restaurant thinking it was a bistro, but the bistro shut down. It is now only offering the pub menu (they share a space with a pub). We expected a bistro/fine dining experience, which was disappointing — their website is currently misleading. It would be clearer to fold the restaurant into the pub proper.

    Not what I expected from other reviews. I guess with COVID they are undergoing renovations or don't have the staff. Meals came from the adjacent pub and not the Bistro itself. I had expected something a little more upscale. Having said that service was good as well as the pub grup (it's just I wasn't expecting pub grub).

    We booked Rail & River via Open Table, which shows the restaurant being open, and has access to the R&R menu. We’ve been previously a number of times, and enjoy it. Went with friends for a bit of a get together. We were shocked to be seated and given Fort Pub menus. The server apologized and said they likely won’t have their own kitchen back open until December. That’s really false-advertising on this app, as there is no mention of their kitchen being closed, and only serving pub food. While we did enjoy our meals, we didn’t get dressed nicely to go to a restaurant, only to be served The Fort Pub’s kitchen food. Should be corrected on Open Table ASAP.

    Rail & river bistro’s website said they were going back to their prior menu on July 16th. I assumed that meant their precovid menu not the Fort pub menu. If I wanted Fort pub food I would go to the Fort pub. Invited friends from white rock to meet us and was embarrassed. Used to enjoy this restaurant…Will not return to Rail & River Bistro.

    A little confusion with the menu. We have been before for lunches and dinners and always loved the menus and the food. Their latest menu was called a tapas menu, but didn't really feel like a tapas menu, at least not like their previous one. Also, some people were ordering off the Pub menu, although that was not offered to us. Still, the food was delicious as always!

    We had been frequent guests of R&R until the mgr Simone left. The food and ambiance used to be exceptional and we recommended this restaurant to many people. We decided to try it one more time....food was decent, but small portions, not much selection, and very pricey. We were there on a Saturday night and there was absolutely no ambiance. The morale of the staff seemed off...the best thing the owner could do is Bring Simone back and turn the restaurant into what it used to be...an experience to look forward to!

    For a unique non mainstream menu options, and perfectly prepared meals. Steak and Brussels sprouts for dinner, a great choice. Tried the brisket sandwich for lunch, rather sparse on the protein, and seemed more a Montreal smoked meat sandwich, so, could do with an increase in portion size. I’d go back tho, and try something else
