It was the restaurant week and it took quite a while for us to get some bread onto the table and our drinks ordered. The food was very good; however, the noise level was very loud. Once we got our drinks, the appetizers came moments later. Their timing could have been a lot better.

We had a delightful experience at RG.Food was delicious and service excellent. There was several choices both entrees and appetizers. That is unusual for Restaurant Week. The desserts only topped off a great evening.

Food was delicious, drinks were good quality with nice alcohol content. we had to wait at the bar though we had a reservation, the place was very busy and we didn't mind waiting. Clean small restaurant. I recommend it to a casual crowd looking for tasty meal and friendly atmosphere.

This was my first time here and did not know what to expect. Was very pleasantly surprised. We ate off the Restaurant week menu and it was absolutely delicious. Had the meatball appetizer, shrimp and mushroom risotto ( perfect ) and then….peanut butter chocolate pie! Would certainly come back and have already recommended to friends. Thanks !

It was our time at this restaurant and we were very pleasantly surprised. The dinner portions were perfect. The Linguine With Shrimp and Clams was excellent. The Linguine With Shrimp Fra Diavolo was perfect - not overly spiced or drowning in sauce. The wait staff are professional and know what they are doing. We will be back!

We ate outside by one of the two fire pits. What a delightful thing to do in October.
Menu was varied - something for everyone. Service friendly but uncrushed - in a good way!

The location is a little strange as it shared the same street with a pizza/Chinese food restaurant and the same parking lot as an auto shop, but the food and service are excellent. The ambiance indoors is quite good. We sat outside because of the pandemic, snd they cordoned off a section of their parking lot with a privacy fence where they set up tables. I’m a slow evening (Sunday) this setup was enjoyable except the occasional smoker who would pass by on the sidewalk (somewhat busy street). Other than the street location this place was a gem!

This was our first time eating at River City Grille, so not quite sure what to expect. But the 8 of us each enjoyed our meals tremendously. The place itself is not that big, so definitely need a reservation. You must also have the Toasted Almond Cake. Delicious.! The entrance was on the side of the building near outdoor seating. Highly recommend going. We will be back.

We decided to spend take a day trip to Tarrytown NY and at the conclusion of our day, were looking for a bite to eat before heading back to Long Island. Upon looking through Open Table we found River City Grille to have a menu of items agreeable to both of us.

The interior is very well decorated and clean, the staff was attentive to us despite the Saturday crowd with other guests, take out, and delivery orders. Every employee seemed to be attentive to their jobs and the task at hand to ensure the restaurant was operating at 100% to ensure guest satisfaction. Our server was always available when needed and checked in from time to time. The manager or owner also worked the room to check in on each table to see how everything was going.

The food was incredible. We ordered the lemon chicken with fresh herbs, lemon and white wine sauce, String Beans, Potatoes & Onions. We also placed an order for the shrimp, asparagus, mushroom and sun dried tomato risotto which I highly recommend. Every ingredient complimented the overall dish without being overpowering. For desert we each had the key lime pie. Every bite was fresh and flavorful.


I highly recommend it if you are in the area. To River City Grille, thank you for making our last stop in Tarrytown an enjoyable one.

Incredible service, we had reservations outside but they did not have a ready table. We mentioned it to our hostess and were ok to sit inside, but after a while the manager came over and graciously offered us a table outside. The waiters were friendly, knowledgeable and very responsive. The food was excellent, we had the pizza, whole wheat pasta and the chickpea bites. The paprika aioli for the chickpea bites was unbelievable, just the right amount of spice and a succulent texture!
Looking forward to going back.

Food and cocktails were very good. Steak a bit over cooked and ordinary. Given that, the restaurant should put more effort into creating a much nicer atmosphere to match the cooking (we ate outside in a glorified parking lot). The pricing is also fairly high so you would want a nicer ambiance to make you feel good about spending that kind of money. Don’t love the hidden 3% fee for kitchen staff. Isn’t that what tips are for? Or why not just include in your pricing? Service was mixed. Overall, we had a good dinner but not sure the value makes it worth returning given the aesthetics of the physical space.

Food is always very good. Service is excellent. Bobby has done a great job creating a cozy ambience outdoors for covid concerns. I just wish the wine list was more affordable.
