River City Grille Ratings and Reviews
It was our first time at the River City Grille. The dining room was inviting and the wait staff did an excellent job. The menu gave us a lot of good choices and was presented in an interesting way - including half portions of some of the main entrees. Meatloaf and Sunday Gravy were favorites at our table. I had sea salt caramel ice cream with hot fudge for dessert - it was awesome! The cold weather did present some issues with heat in the restroom but overall it was a pleasant experience.
You can tell that this restaurant has good management. They hire capable hosts and servers, and they're very reliable on service. We had a fairly larger group reservation, and they were very accommodating to our needs. The food is above average. It could be better with a more talented chef (as certain foods were undercooked while others were overcooked). It could have been an off-night in that respect. I would definitely recommend this establishment. There's plenty of diverse options on their menu, and I'm always more flexible when there's good management/ownership and even better service.
I met a friend for lunch that was visiting the Westchester area from Atlanta we decided
to eat somewhere local in the area. I found River City Grill thur google.
The food was great and the prices and service was really good to.
I'll definitely plan to revisit here.
We went there for restaurant week and it was delicious! I was a little confused about the ambiance of the restaurant and their menu but we had no complaints. The pork wrapped in bacon special was amazing! They were lenient w their choices for RW as well. It’s weird that it’s in the same parking lot as a body shop but don’t let this steer you away!
I'd been meaning to try this spot for some time and finally did. Very pleasantly surprised. Nice ambiance, very good food from a diverse moderately priced menu and excellent service. Even my almost impossible to please 90 year old Mom was delighted. Highly recommend.
This continues to be my go-to place. It is consistently great food, I love the atmosphere and the servers are super attentive. What more could you want?
Oh, and I was raving about the butternut squash soup to the owner and he brought out the recipe for me. How nice was that...and no, it wasn't as good as theirs when I tried to make it.
My son is a cast member of a show taking place at Irvington theatre and he had 75 minutes between shows (4:45-6) and they had us out the door with no problems!! And the food was outstanding!! I loved the grilled chicken sandwich with the ginger orange marmalade!
Clean beautiful atmosphere, not to mention the soap in the bathroom which was sooo awesome that we bought two of them before we left (yes they sell it)!
Looks can be deceiving. The outside appearance - even with a fresh coat of gray paint - leaves you anxious - has the look of old diner, sitting next to a neighborhood garage. But the sleek modern interior comes as a pleasant surprise, and the food even more so. Fresh, elegantly presented. Great food, friendly service, I would go back in an instant, now that I know what the locals know.
