Great food and great atmosphere!
Pleasurable dining experience. The ambiance and meals were excellent.
Our waitress was excellent. One of our guest was allergic to garlic and our waitress was so helpful in finding our about the menu for us and asking the chef questions about specific dishes. We loved the food and we definitely will return. Thank you so much for the great service.
Excellent service. My husband could not stop talking about how great the food was. Our waiter was so friendly and very professional. His name was Barry, cudos. I will recommend to my family and friends.
Excellent all around. I took my parents there, the menus were a little mucky but it was quiet clean and the food was very good.
Awesome service and food!
Thank you very much for the great review!
Service was poor, French fries came out cold, the onion rings came out after we were almost done eating, waitress never filled our drinks, we had to ask a food runner to get more drinks which in turn he asked another waiter to get the drinks. When I made the reservations, I requested Happy Father's Day in chocolate on the dessert. That was never told to the waitress, so I had to tell her in front of everyone which ruined the surprise. Found HAIR in the to go container.
Service was poor.
We took our dad here for Father’s Day brunch and really enjoyed it. Our server John was very attentive and had a great positive attitude! I had the lobster roll and it was amazing! Only complaint were the sides were kind of pricey for what we got. My sister ordered the grits and for $5 we definitely expected more than the little bowl she received. Other than that the atmosphere was nice and kid friendly. We checked out the upstairs lounge and it was breathtaking. Will definitely have to come back for drinks another time!
Normally yes but they never had my reservations for that evening. We bought an expensive bottle of wine and the server stood around talking before offering to bring us a chiller. Wine was never poured for us. My prime rib was brought out as rare rather than medium well as requested. The food was good but it was my first time and the service just sucked.
Bartenders need not be smelling cups,band sticking straw's in drinks to taste test,
Drinks and view were amazing. Food was subpar and disappointing.
I was extremely disappointed at how bad of an experience I had this past time. As I suggested this place to my friends being that my first experience was excellent. So I referred to this place to my group of girls and we went there for my friends birthday celebration. I had a table of 6 and each person was disappointed in their meal. It was extremely disappointing to me. I do not think I will return or refer this place to any of my friends.
I always enjoy River & Post for dinner and cocktails. The staff is friendly and quick. Staff is knowledgeable about the menu, and if you have questions, they are always willing to check things out for you.
The only thing to come to river and post for... is the VIEW!

Wonderful food and great service. Waiter gave great details on different entrees to help us choose our meals. We have been here often and our experience has always been phenomenal and we will definitely come back. We had the Seared Sea Scallops (which are always amazing and so very flavorful) and the Grilled Black Angus Rib Eye ( it had so much flavor from the rosemary glaze) these are a must have!
Thank you so much for the great review! We hope to see you again very soon!
It was delightful.
Thank you very much for the great review!
My only complaint is that the mahi-mahi sandwich should have been great, considering how well River & Post typically does with food plus the price (it was that day’s “lunch special). Instead the fish almost disappeared in the large, ordinary bun, and tasted like a fish sandwich I could have gotten at Arby’s. Except that Arby’s gives much bigger portions of the fish in its sandwiches (pretty amazing deal when they run those at two for $5). Sorry but that mahi-mahi sandwich really needs improvement.
Otherwise the lunch was great, good place to go with colleagues, yummy French fries, great decor.
Thanks for the awesome review! We appreciate the notes on the mahi sandwich too. We'll make sure to relay all feedback to our staff and improve on the lunch specials for your next visit!
Seriously..the food is amazing!
You are too kind!! We appreciate the awesome review and hope to see you again soon!
Great atmosphere and everything on the menu is worth trying! They're always overly accommodating of our little one too. River and Post raises the bar for service in Jacksonville- keep it up!
Thank you so much for the amazing review!! See you next time in Riverside!
We got there early for our anniversary dinner. We went to the rooftop for a drink and it was a great view and atmosphere. When we were seated we were not rushed at all, to the point where our entree order wasn't taken until we were done with our appetizer. The only "issue" I would have would be the tables seem to be close togather,and it didn't see. Like there was a lot of 2 person tables. Again not a big issue
We are so glad you enjoyed your anniversary with us and thank you for the feedback!
Came here on Saturday for my future sister-in-law’s bachelorette party. I had been here once prior and really enjoyed it then. This time though, unfortunately, none of us were impressed. Though I will say our server, Matt, was excellent and very funny.
As far as the food though, not everything came out hot. The filet mignon was very tender as it should be, but a couple of us ordered it and they all came with barely any sauce or mushrooms on them. The noise level this time was crazy loud, but we didn’t mind since we were having a fun night in general that night... but definitely wouldn’t recommend this for a romantic date night out. Cheesecake and bread pudding were excellent. The mousse cake was kind of bland.
Overall I wouldn’t write this place off since they’re 1 for 2 now, but for the amount of money we spent here this weekend, we were kind of let down.
Thanks so much for the feedback! We would love to reach out directly if possible and speak about this experience. At your convenience, please contact us via our website and a manager will be in touch asap. Thank you for your business and we hope to hear from you soon!
Great evening for our anniversary. LIzzie was a wonderful waitress. She took amazing care of us.
Thank you very much for the awesome review! We will surely pass along your compliment to the server!
Another excellent visit to River & Post! Ambience, service, and food are always great!
Thank you very much for the review! We are ecstatic that you are enjoying all your visits! See you again soon in Riverside : )
Best in class service, food, cleanliness, location, date night!
Thank you very much for the great review! Can't wait to see you again in Riverside!
The restaurant was very noisy; towards the end of the meal, we were actually shouting at each other just to be heard! Admittedly, I asked for a lot of modifications for my meal because I have a restrictive diet and they totally messed up. They brought me a new entree, but it still wasn't right. However, they were very apologetic and comped some of our meal. All in all, great service. Food was okay for the money.
Thank you very much for the feedback! We are glad the server was able to correct some of these issues, but if you'd like to tell us more, please don't hesitate to reach out via our website and a manager will be in contact directly. We appreciate your business and hope to earn your 5-star review next visit!
Good food, good drinks.. awesome atmosphere! Definitely making a return trip!
Thank you very much for the awesome review!
My husband and I took our son and two out of town relatives to River and Post for a glass of wine on the rooftop bar and dinner in the dining room. As always, the view from the bar was impressive. For dinner, we were given a table in the rear dining room, as requested. Service was attentive and the food delicious. Two had the sirloin, one had the yellow fin special, one had shrimp and grits, and I had the fried oyster plate. The wine list is very reasonably priced; we ordered a bottle each of Pinot Gris and Malbec to complement the food. A very enjoyable experience!
Thanks so much for the awesome review, Elizabeth! We are happy you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon!
I made a reservation for birthday dinner for my husband who’s never been there before. Drinks were great, appetizer was great. Main courses were not great. My fish was way too salty and trust me, I’m not a picky eater.
I was hoping my husband will get a candle for his birthday but that never happened and even though it was birthday dinner celebration, no was asked us when we came in if we are there just for casual dinner or if it’s special occasion.
The rooftop was closed for private event and there was no mention of it anywhere... overall disappointing and I really wanted to make this experience nice for my husband.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience last night. We appreciate you choosing us for this special occasion and apologize that the visit was not up to expectations. At your convenience, please use our website "contact us" page to fill in your information and manager will reach out directly as soon as possible.
Great restaurant, food was good, roof atmosphere blows away the interior though and you can’t get full food service on the roof...
Thank you very much for the great review!
My husband and I had dinner here to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary on a Wednesday evening. We had a reservation and we were promptly seated. Service was excellent and speedy. Food was hot and delicious and they even surprised my husband and I at the end with a dessert and hand wrote happy anniversary in chocolate! We were impressed with the whole experience and will be back again
Thank you very much for the great review! We are so glad you spent your special day with us and hope to see you again soon!
It was a Sunday, evening, lots of families, group and noisy.
Crab beignets were extremely greasy and tasted as if fried in burnt oil. Unfortunately, my husband’s fried seafood platter and fries were also cooked using the same burnt oil. He was unable to finish his meal. The broiled seafood platter was bland and overcooked. Shrimp and scallops were chewy. House vegetables were average, asparagus was burnt. I was also unable to finish my meal. The highlight of the meal was the wedge salad which was above average at best. The server did not offer information when asked which seafood dishes were the most popular. He was not very attentive, and no one asked us how our meal was. No plans to return.
Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your experience and I apologize for the entrees not meeting your expectations. We appreciate the feedback and would like to speak with you further regarding yesterday's visit. Please reach out to us via our website "contact us" page and we will get in touch with you directly. Thank you for your business!
We went to eat during brunch. The prices were very reasonable, and the food was delicious. Service was solid. No complaints to be made, and I would highly recommend the restaurant.
Thanks so much for the great review! I hope you were able to take a trip to the rooftop as well now that we are open upstairs at 11am Saturdays and Sundays :-) See you next time!
Great food and great service but the noise was just about intolerable. Thank goodness our party of five had a booth to buffer some of the noise but we still had to shout at one another just to try to have a conversation. I would definitely go back but I would try it on a Monday or Tuesday. Saturday night it seemed like a speed dating site for hyper energetic Millennials racing in and out and up and down the elevator to the roof. I’m not knocking it just pointing out the predominance of large groups of young people ‘on the town’ meant ‘quiet dining’ was a non-option. Maybe a separate dining room space (with sound-proofing) for old fogies (young or old) might create the best of all worlds: something for everyone. Valet parking was a plus.
Thank you so much for the review! You are right... the noise level on busier nights is something we have been working on for a bit. Please do come and visit on a quieter night! Our Monday - Friday happy hour just started too from 3-6:30 everyday with $5 appetizers downstairs. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon!
We enjoyed our dinner and a glass of wine at the beautiful rooftop bar beforehand. As usual, the food was excellent, though would still hope for a better selection of wines by the glass in the future. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was certainly hopping -- always good to see local restaurants busy -- but it was perhaps a bit more "energetic" than we've experienced in past visits as it was difficult to carry on a conversation over the noise level.
Thank you very much for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and we are currently working on solutions for the weekend noise level for sure. See you again soon!
Service was great and so was the food! Loved the roof top deck
Manager was not accommodating!! Would not use restaurant again!! Food was cold when it arrived at table!! 7 people had to squeeze into a booth!!!
Thank you very much for the review! We would like to speak with you directly regarding the service yesterday. Please use our website "contact us" page and a manager will reach out to you asap. We appreciate your business and will absolutely pass along the issues you experienced to our team.
I am definitely coming back to River and Post! This place has wonderful food, kind waiters, cool decor, and a clean environment! Also, the lunch prices are very reasonable.
Thank you for the great review! See you again soon in Riverside!
We were there for dinner on a Friday night. The food and ambience were amazing. The restaurant was very busy and a little loud for our liking.
Thank you for the great review! Yes, it can definitely get a little noisy on the weekends, but we are glad you enjoyed the food and service. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon!
