Welcome to River & Post - a casual dining restaurant bringing a trendy environment, great food, and breathtaking views to the exciting area of Riverside. A spacious rooftop bar overlooks downtown Jax, straight down the gorgeous St. John's River, past the glow of the stadium, and on up to Dames Point. Our menu features locally sourced selections from land and sea. You’ll come for the view, but you’ll come back for the flavor. You'll find an atmosphere like no other and a culinary experience that will make you, well, yell from the rooftops.

Disclaimer: River & Post does not offer the full dining menu on our rooftop, but does offer appetizers. Our lounge seating is on a first come, first served basis starting daily at 4:00 p.m.

For parties of 10 or more, at least half the group must be present to be seated. We will then hold the reservation for 15 minutes to wait for the additional guests. If the guests do not arrive, we will reduce the table to fit the current group.

Too many lawyers on the rooftop making all their obnoxious lawyer sounds. Better in the dining area downstairs

Not great service on the roof top even though it wasn't at all crowded. However, excellent service downstairs for dining. Great server, very good food, and nice ambiance. Enjoyed our meal.

Our server was most attentive (Rhonda?) … nice greeting when we entered restaurant from the hostess … would like to see a couple of three hand-helds from the menu (other than apps) offered upstairs (i.e burger)

Beautiful setting for a before dinner beverage on the roof! Dinner with the husband before FLorida Theater show was perfectly yummy and wonderful. New server Tony was so great and his recommendations were spot on! He helped make our date night a very special occasion. We’ll be back for sure!

The crab and calamari appetizers were great, and the seared scallops were amazing. The sea bass was incredible. Someone in our party ordered steak, and had to ask for steak sauce because it was just a little bland. However...he said the scrumptious bread pudding made everything all right!

We sampled a limited happy hour drink menu rooftop for an hour, then ate dinner below. Everything was very good. Service and food were excellent. A little pricey (almost $200 for the 2 of us), but I guess that's expected occasionally

The restaurant is very nice and clean. Loved the comfortable leather back chairs. The meatballs with Lebanese seasoning were good. We especially enjoyed the cocktail Fleck and Laura’s blueberry dessert. I thought by the pictures on Open Table we would have a river view but that was not the case in the restaurant only the lounge.

The room was great, if energetic. The food was goo dish, if slightly overpriced. Some items were hot and some weren’t. The food took quite a while, which probably explains the patchy temperatures. Folks from Charleston should avoid the Shrimp and Grits like Alabamians avoid Texas “Barbecue.” The service was not so good, but probably just our waitress. This could be a really good place, but isn’t yet.

I wasn’t sure if I was checked in with Open table before being seated, and so asked our server to make sure that this was done. He said he did, but I still haven’t seen the prompt in my email. Anyway he overall service was ok, could have been better. The food was very good and the ambiance was good.

The food is not as good as it should be for the prices - and the service last Saturday was unacceptable. Our server was not very personable and neither was the bartender downstairs. I did like the atmosphere. I will likely go back, but it will be while.

The restaurant is unpleasantly loud. I could not hear the waitress or my husband talking. I had to cover my ears to protect them from noise. Because it was extraordinarily uncomfortable being seated inside we requested to be moved outside. When we did, the waitress, though nice, forgot about us. It took nearly an hour to get our appetizer. We ordered the special and it wasn’t until we were expecting our main course that we were notified the kitchen had already ran out of the snapper. We opted not to select a different main entree and requested our check instead. The mussels were delicious. The salad was good. Based on our overall experience we have ZERO desire to go back.

Went in for dinner on 3-28 which happened to be my birthday. Our table was not ready so we had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Once seated we waited 10 minutes before being approached by our server. I asked about the soup and specials but she couldn’t explain either. She seamed distracted at best. When our food was delivered she didn’t check with us and my steak was not prepared correctly. The food was under seasoned and we had to track down a manager just to voice a complaint. Our server still hadn’t checked back. All over...terrible meal and experience! I wouldn’t go back

Food was excellent all they way around. We ordered steak, scallops and the seafood platter, and everybody enjoyed their meal. Desserts were also very good...bread pudding and chocolate mousse.
Over all I thought it was pricey. $2.50 for a small cup of coffee? Our bill for 4 was $200 (with tip). No appetizers, and 1 drink each. Good service...water was always full. Server was attentive and polite, but not bothersome.

Ahi tuna dinner delicious. Informative friendly service. Timing pace perfect. Nice decor. French influence. Ask for booth as we were seated by bar with TV and noisy sports fans.
Grilled seafood perfectly cooked. Shrimp and grits delicious especially lobster sauce.
When visiting JAX we returned twice it was so good

It was my birthday dinner. The rooftop was spectacular as always. Drinks were good, appetizers ok. Food downstairs wasn’t worth the raised prices. I’d rather have drinks there and go to Ruths Chris for dinner. Either food needs to be better for the price or price needs to be lower.
