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 Jacksonville, 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 at 4 pm Monday through Friday and 11 am Saturday and Sunday.

The scallop with corn risotto was amazing! We traveled from Orlando area to Jacksonville for our anniversary. We were glad that we chose River and Post to celebrate the occasion. We will definitely return.

It was a pleasant experience. The staff were very attentive and the ambiance and food were very good. Also, they served a birthday dessert which made our celebration extra special.

Stopped for a night in Jacksonville, went to River and Post rooftop lounge for pre-dinner cocktails, great mixed drinks and spectacular views. Down the elevator for dinner, great food and super service. We will stop there on our return trip.

Rooftop bar is nice but drinks are very expensive and the martini was not icy cold. Nice view but we have plenty of Intercoastal and Ocean views in Ponte Vedra Beach. Food was mediocre at dinner on the bottom floor and the ambiance was nil. Sorry but won’t be back. Disappointed.

I enjoyed the meal and it seemed as my guest did too. I would recommend putting the vegetarian dish on the menu, the waiter had to inform us after looking through the menu for non meat options.

I made my reservation using the Opentable app. Upon our arrival at River & Post, the hostess told us that the restaurant was having trouble with all Opentable reservations and that they had no record of our reservation. I received a reservation confirmation from Opentable. Our seating was delayed which caused us to rush through an our dining experience.

Enjoyed our dinners that ranged from salmon to steaks or ribs. Portions are quite good. A couple of us had to take some home. Very noisy and difficult to hear conversations.

Absolutely amazing food! I had the Flounder special and it was amazing. I’ve never had a fish with that much of a crust on it but still be so moist and tender inside. Please keep this on the menu all the time! My boyfriend also loved the pork chop he got.

Our waiter was as good as I've had in 50+ years of dining out. One can imagine he was the head chef doing a tour on the waitstaff to sample of the clientele attracted to River and Post.

After being seated by Gretchen and giving the menu to my Caucasians co-workers first did not set too well with me. Call it whatever you want but racism still exists in restaurants. I know that you would disagree with me that her actions were discriminatory but you are wearing my shoes. Besides, she's your employee. I know that my coming there will not make or break you but no thank you for my dining there.

Have a pretty day.

It was our first time there and we loved it. The price was right, food and service spot on. Our server,Jake was attentive without being intrusive. We all had some thing different and everyone loved their lunch. We were too early for the rooftop bar which opens a 4:00 p.m. but they were nice enough to let us go up and take a look at it. Can't wait to go back and celebrate happy hour there one evening. Also can't wait to try brunch there either.

River and Post is a beautiful restaurant. The ambiance was quiet, comfortable and upscale. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the dishes and offered recommendations. One person in our party didn't care for her chocolate martini, which took an especially long time to make, but other than that everything wss delicious. Would definitely return, but will stick to the cocktails on the menu.

Great service as usual except for the missed opportunity to celebrate a friend who was in town for her birthday. I included comments in the reservation and confirmed when I arrive. I would have been nice for the staff to bring a birthday treat and sing a song.

Hands down one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in Jacksonville. The manager, Joe, is completely invested in insuring you truly enjoy every minute in his establishment. The customer service and quality of the food was second to none. We will be back and requesting Jossie’s section.

We had reservations on a Thursday evening. We sat outside as the weather was pleasant. Our server was knowledgeable & attentive. There were four in our party celebrating my birthday. We all enjoyed ourselves & our meal was delicious. Afterwards , we went upstairs to the rooftop lounge for a cocktail . We definitely recommend River & Post for atmosphere & great food.
