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 or accept reservations on the rooftop. Our Rooftop Lounge seating is on a first come first serve basis and opens daily at 4:00 p.m.

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

This was my third time and the third time we had a problem with our orders. Service is slow. Food tastes great and drinks are good when you finally get them. The computers were down so we couldn’t leave until we could pay the bill -40 minutes later.

We had a very good meal, the food was enjoyed by all. We had a 6 top and sat in the enclosed area near the entrance near elevators. We felt it was odd that there was a big screen TV looming over us and on CBS, or any channel. For a fine dinning experience there should only be TVs in the bar area, even Outback gets that. To spend a lot of money on a great meal but to have to make an effort to ignore a TV with political ads popping up was unfortunate. Management should be more in tune with this dynamic.
Also, one of our party has a crab allergy and expressed that to the server. She had the Halibut special and loved it...until she had an allergic reaction later that evening and had to go to the hospital by ambulance. Must have been cross contamination somehow, there was lobster in the risotto. I cast no blame but this should be a serious reminder to you that when a patron says they have a food allergy it is to be taken very seriously. We got to bed at 330 am after the ER doctor finally released her after observation and all the meds settled.
I still would recommend you and may return in the future but I hope my comments will be considered by management. Thanks.

Amazing view. Good cocktails. Food is good but nothing special. We had beignets, beet salad, filet and grouper. None of the food would bring me back but the roof top bar is spectacular.

River and Post was an absolutely amazing experience. It did take about 15 minutes until our server came over which was unfortunate but everything after that was amazing. The chardonnay we ordered was a perfect compliment to the Beef Tartare, Ceviche, Mussels, and Clams and Linguine. 10/10 would go back!

It was my birthday, and so my son wanted to take me some place special. River and Post offered the great view of the River. I had been looking forward to the great view of the river up on the top floor for drinks and appetizers, but unfortunately when we got there we found out it was under renovation :( We ended up on the patio outside for dinner. The food was great, service was good and we enjoyed ourselves very much. I have read in reviews that the noise level inside the restaurant is deafening, and that was my prior experience in the bar at another visit as well. Very difficult to hear each other talk, even inches away from each other. That was also a problem for the little time we spent upstairs in the little time we did sit by a window at the inside bar for a glass of wine briefly before going back downstairs. So be prepared for a high noise level. If you are looking for a quiet dining experience, opt for a different restaurant. Otherwise great place.

Absolutely beautiful views on the rooftop bar area and a great gathering place for drinks, friends, and conversation. Lots of seating and just a great place to visit. The restaurant was very comfortable, and a the food was also VERY good. I only gave service a 3 because the service on the rooftop bar was just ok. The waitresses were a bit stand-offish and not friendly at all. Our food server downstairs was very friendly and went over and above. Will definitely go back.

Great food! Had the calamari for appetizer and the linguini and clams for entree which came with a ton of clams! Macy was our server and she was very sweet and attentive. Noise level is loud inside but outdoor seating allows for a quieter atmosphere. The rooftop bar had a great view. Would be awesome if they put another bar outside instead of just the one inside. Overall great time would definitely go back.

Bustling neighborhood eatery. One of my most memorable dining experiences in Jax and well worth the drive from the beach! Our dishes were innovative and expertly prepared. Presentation was photograph worthy. Our waiter greeted us promptly and proved to be most knowledgeable and professional. I even threw them a curve ball by requesting a specialty cocktail not on the menu. Our waiter and bartender were happy to create and it was on point! Will definitely return soon.

Since the ambiance is very "quiet conversation" its great for romantic dinners & Anniversaries but river and post would not be my first suggestion for a group outing. Although I must say THE FOOD WAS 100% AMAZING !

While the food was excellent, two of our four diners got the ‘surf’ portion of their meals at least 15 minutes after the “turf” portion was served. Our waiter kept stopping by to say “30 more seconds” and “it’s almost finished,” but still my guests waited. Disappointing to say the least.
