    Went to this restaurant for a quick bite before we headed out on the town. Service was great but the salmon was dry and the mango salsa helped moisten it a bit. All in all we'd go back.

    Should’ve noticed it was part of the hotel but really shocked to find such a hotel restaurant experience. It almost felt like eating in a cafe as opposed to a restaurant.

    Restaurant was clean, food was really good, service was prompt and attentive. Only one small criticism about timing: I would’ve preferred that my entrée not be delivered until I had ample time to finish my salad. Outside of that, was an overall very pleasant meal.

    Pictures are deceiving. The menu was different than what was on-line. They advertised a Valentine's Day menu but it was lost non-existent. The drinks were decent. The servers were nice but inexperienced. Our order was wrong. Our check was wrong. The hamburger and chicken sandwich made us both sick. The restaurant space was more suited to a morning continental breakfast. We will not return.

    The service was great! As soon as we walked in a table was ready with our drinks on the way. We got there close to closing time but we were not turned away or rushed, which was greatly appreciated. Our breakfast ended up being buffet style with waffles, pancakes, eggs, potatoes, sausage, bacon, fruit, muffins and toast. The potatoes were AMAZING, literally seasoned to perfection. The pancakes were so luscious and delicious it was amazing. All in all the food and experience was a good back, I would come back if in the area again.

    Beautiful evening, so we decided to eat outside at this laid-back restaurant. The service was great, and we were served our drinks quickly. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich, which was excellent! My son got a burger and my husband got the crab cake sandwich—both were delicious. Highly recommend this place, especially if the weather is right to eat outside.

    Had a very nice meal by a very welcoming staff. Started outdoors but it became cold and we moved inside without a hitch. The waiters recommendations were right on for us, Brussels sprouts appetizer, steak frites, burger were all top-notch. COVID precautions were all there, as servers were masked the whole time.

    Outstanding customer service. We had a reservation for quite a while. Somewhere after we made our reservation, a private party booked the whole restaurant. River Rock could have cancelled our reservation but didn't. We were served with excellent service (only people in the restaurant since they were setting up for the private party). Food was very good and service was top notch. Highly recommend, and we will be back.

    We arrived and waited at the welcome area. We were not greeted by anyone and could not even identify who was an employee. There were very loud groups of people, and some seemed drunk. We received this review and didn't even eat there. Best choice was to leave.

    Our experience at River Rock Kitchen was a bit out of the ordinary because we are, after all, in the midst of a pandemic and, at that moment, major power outages in Wilmington. Our server, Giovanni Pollock, was attentive, helpful and very nice. We ate outside as a virus precaution, so he had extra steps. We both had the roasted salmon with a pea risotto that was excellent. But our hopes for the chocolate brownie/ice cream dessert were sadly in vain, as they didn't have the ice cream. How can a restaurant run out of ice cream? We'll certainly try them again.

    It's okay for a quick quiet bite to eat but the portions are incredibly small. The "large" shrimp order had 6 shrimp on it. The mushroom bisque was bland. The short rib egg rolls were very greasy. The most positive thing was the flight of beer.

    Food was great. Alcohol/wine was very overpriced. Restaurant was almost empty and we were seated at a table right across from the hotel lobby entrance doors. Why would they not give the people that reserve in advance the best tables?

    We had an awesome meal at River Rock Kitchen! We both ordered off the Eat Well Menu. One of us had Farro Mushroom Pilaf and the Tomato Soup, the other ordered the Roasted Beet Salad and Grilled Salmon. Every item was served to temperature, seasoned well, and simply delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. We arrived quite early for dinner (5pm) and were the only diners in the restaurant proper while others were having food in the lounge/bar area. We left very impressed, high compliments to the chef. We will be back and hope to have room for dessert, too, next time.
