A wonderful way to spend Valentine's Day! Delicious food; friendly service. Happy to support this fine restaurant during the pandemic. Will be sure to come back again and again!
The food was so delicious and was served extremely fast. we were out of there within an hour but didn’t feel rushed at all. it was a great place to eat!
Delicious food, great service, well-spaced tables...overall a delightful evening!
Beautiful ambience and food was delicious! There were 7 of us and we all enjoyed our food!
Very good all around experience.
Dinner with a friend. Very quiet. Food & service were excellent. Would be nice date night.
Very nice service, wide menu and fine service.
Great atmosphere and great service. I wasn’t able to get a glass of Malbec even though it was listed on the menu. Otherwise a nice place.
Great service and wonderful pasta !
Food and service were great. The ambiance was not in line with the quality of the rest though. I’ll be back!
We’ve eaten here in the past and loved the food. Brunch was always amazing. Dinner as well.
We came back post COVID and it was just “meh”. The chicken scarp had no flavor at all. The calamari was not really an appetizer, rather it was a huge platter that could have been family style. Had we known we would have skipped it. Butternut squash soup was also meh. Nothing special.
Best Food And Great Quality. Very Friendly Staff. Never Disappointed!!!
Great fish - we love coming here for fish but there’s plenty of other choices too.
It was excellent!
I was in town for a wedding this past weekend. Made a reservation a River City Grille. The service was excellent and food was great! Would defiantly go back to this place when in town.
They got my wife's order wrong three times. It was a matter of cooking a piece of salmon so it wasn't raw on the inside--shouldn't be a difficult mistake to correct.
We enjoyed, the only thing I would suggest is using larger pieces of chicken instead of wings for the lemon chicken dish.
We returned! This time we brought our friends. The four of us had an outstanding meal. Loved dining al fresco,,too. RCG made it so cozy out front with some gentle background music. Our friends ordered chickpea bites—surprisingly delicious! And those THE MEATBALLS!!!! Ahhh again I had to have those meatballs as an appetizer. For dinner, we ordered two servings of the daily mixed grill, one salmon dinner and one filet mignon. And everything was superb! I know,we will be back again.
Always a pleasant time dining at River City Grille. The new outdoor dining ran smoothly and the food was excellent as always
Very quaint place . Good food. Very nice service. All in all a lovely night!
We dined outdoors and the staff was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, as always.
They are doing the best they can to offer a really nice experience during these unusual times.
We dined at River City Grille to celebrate a birthday. We totally enjoyed our dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. Each of our party selected a different entree and all of the food was superb. We usually go into NYC on special occasions but I am happy that we visited a local establishment. I highly recommend River City Grille and plan to visit again.
Great place, great food!
Very good food and attentive staff practicing all the Covid-19 requirements.
We ate outdoors at a new section set up to socially distant
It was fine being outside
The food was great as always
Ate inside. Excellent service. Food quite good. We will go back again.
Wonderful outdoor dining experience with delicious menu options and attentive service.
Excellent food and service!
This is our second meal at River City and both times we really enjoyed. We were able to relax and have a nice quiet meal. The food is great and they have a nice selection of small dishes and entrees. I had two appetizers which was way more food than I expected. And the desserts really make it difficult to choose. I loved the Black and White Shake!! We will definitely be back!!
The food was excellent, as usual. I had the mushroom ravioli which may have been the best mushroom ravioli I’ve ever had. My dinner companions had the steak and the seafood linguine special. Both loved their meals. Three of us shared the apple ginger beignets. They were fresh and delicious. And the order of 5 beignets was just enough for the three of us! I have to remember how much I like this place and frequent it more often!
We dined at River City Grille on Friday night. The service was wonderful and the food delicious. I had the ziti with chicken. Try it!!!
Beautiful small space just perfect for an evening with friends. Honestly we were pleasantly surprised with the nice ambiance as we entered. We were greeted outside by a valet who helped ensure our parking was correct.
Service right from the welcome was courteous. We ordered cauliflower pizette, crispy goat cheese salad and chickpea bites. All of them were scrumptious and tastefully presented, latter very innovative. For mains we got their cod entree, sesame crusted salmon and grilled shrimps. All of us enjoyed our food and were very pleased with attendant staff who ensured our requests were cared for.
We will bring other friends to this establishment soon. What a lovely discovery. The friends that came with us were planning on the same. Strongly recommended.
Great place. Our go-to!
Aside from very mediocre service, the kitchen ran out of one of the specials before 8pm.
Although a nice atmosphere, there was nothing about the food that would interest me enough to return.
My husband, a friend and I just had dinner at River City Grille We haven't been there for a while(I live in Bayside) and I forgot how good it was.
Everything was perfect from the minute we walked in. Bobby and his staff are very welcoming First they asked if they could take our coat(in many restaurants you have to sit with your coat) The meal was well paced, never rushed.
We began our meal with the Mushroom Ravioli Appetizer It was outstanding. My husband had the jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab meat The portion was quite large Our friend had the Sesame Crusted Salmon,and I had the Simply Grilled Salmon which was cooked perfectly
The menu is quite diverse it has something for everyone
We shared the chocolate molten cake with mint chocolate ice cream( one of the best molten cakes I've ever had)
We will definitely return whenever we are in the area
This is a must try restaurant,I promise you will not be disappointed
An excellent meal! Service was delightful, prompt, and answered all my questions.
Soup of the day and Thai beef salad.
We came for brunch and really enjoyed it. The fixed price menu included a fresh fruit cup, main dish, and coffee, tea and juice. Service was attentive, inquiring about food allergies. Food came promptly and was good. We were not rushed once we were done with our meals and we could easily hear eachother in spite of a nice buzz in the restaurant.
Always consistently good. One of our go-to’s for special occasions and when we’d like a nice mean out.
On the evening we dined the dining room was especially loud so that was somewhat distracting, but I guess it’s the price you pay for having a full restaurant and we’re always happy to see a local favorite busy and thriving.
