    Service was wonderful. Sitting outside is shaded and lovely. The benets were delicious and so was the coffee. Sadly all of our entrees were very lackluster. We will go back for a drink, a fresh juice or a coffee but not for a main dish.

    As always, a fantastic experience. I met a work colleague for a breakfast meeting and River Vine was the perfect place — quiet, beautiful, comfortable atmosphere, respectful service and delicious food. You can’t go wrong with RV. Also, plenty of parking, which is also a perk!

    I have been enjoying lunches at River Vine for several years and was disappointed when it closed during the pandemic. To my relief, they reopened, and I have been once again enjoying dining at River Vine. Vicki and Elmer are fantastic servers. My lower rating has to do with the extremely high prices. When your Caeser Salad with chicken and an iced tea costs you $36.70 without tip, it should be an abundance of food, but the portions are small, and the costs are relevant to a much finer dining higher end food choice. I no longer can recommend this establishment because of the overpriced menu.

    As usual RV food was excellent and the atmosphere is so welcoming. However, this time we found the server to be rather diffident and not too caring in how she waited on us and served us. Not true in the past, when the young man served us. He was there yesterday as a welcomer and host.

    We all had the brunch, nothing special, it’s the same thing I have every Sunday at my local diner, only difference was I only got one piece of toast with my eggs, and the check was twice as much. It was very nice inside the building and outside as well. Not sure if it was worth the difference of the check.

    Very accommodating and supportive of my 100 year old mother-in-law. Brunch and lunch both available when we got there at 12:30. Tomato soup and grilled cheese classic perfectly done. Husband said hamburger was “perfect”. I had a perfectly fine steak and eggs with very good lightly seasoned “ Cajun” potatoes. We launched our holiday weekend here and plan to go back.

    We had a party of 8 for a birthday breakfast celebration. Had to ask more than once for more coffee and water refills. The food was below average and frankly quite tasteless. The service was disappointing, especially when an automatic gratuity is added on for a large party. I am happy to tip the server but guests should not have to ask multiple times for beverage refills (especially when the restaurant is not busy).

    Delicious and it is. Charming place. Good service. One complaint…or request. The menu never changes not even a little bit. We have been going to River Vine since March of this year but have decided we have exhausted the lunch items and will not be going there for a while. I have introduced more than a dozen new customers to River Vine since March….everyone enjoyed their meal and the location BUT are not prepared to have such a short choice every time on the menu lunch menu Can the chef do something?

    The food is delicious and some items I love are not at any other restaurant in Santa Rosa that I know of. The ambiance is just lovely, perfect for a special lunch between ladies or a family special get together, as well as business lunches. the service was excellent, up until the checks arrived, unfortunately. We split the check and one diner was charged half while the other was charged the full ticket. It took some time to get this straightened out and put a little damper on the fun of the lunch. Still, I will definitely return.
