The food tasted amazing. The service was top notch. We were a little disappointed in the portion size of one of the entrees, especially as it was a set menu.

The service was excellent, our waitress seemed to appear just when we thought of something. The food was very good. The flavors of the different items on your plate would dance around your tongue as to paired different portions. Serving sizes were perfect for my dinner companion and I, we both felt satisfied with out feeling overstuffed. I had the duck and my companion had the salmon, we would both recommend them. We can't wait to return and try other dishes. Our compliments to the chef and staff!

We had a wonderful meal. Old friends meeting up but with a twist, one of our friends announced our retirement. What a lovely surprise for her to receive a cake with Happy Retirement written on the plate. Very nice evening! Great meal!

What a treat to have dinner with friends at Riverbank it was the first time there for 5 of our group of 6 and it lived up to the comments of the one that had eaten there before from the menu selections, service and the quality of the food. Great job we will return.

Absolutely fantastic. We had our 9 year old daughter with us and they were very accommodating to adjusting the menu for her. She loves tenderloin and ordered off the regular menu so she could try the tenderloin. She loved it and even though she is picky about vegetables she said they were great. The service was excellent, very clean and the food incredible. We will be going back soon.

Our favourite local restaurant by far!! Chef Dan and his staff outdid themselves for New Years! Delicious poached pear salad, beef tenderloin followed by a cheesecake which was "to die for". This was our third time dining in December: once with our company, once with family "just because" and New Years. Each visit was exceptional and unique! We'll be back ... again and again :)

Except for limited parking when it's busy like a week before Christmas, this is the place to go for special celebrations.

Overall great evening. One of our group was vegetarian and they offered a terrific Veggie Wellington. Drinks were a little pricey but there was a good selection. The portions were large for both the salads and entries. Yes we definately will return.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The Ceasar salad is to die for.

One down fall but not a major crisis, management should make it a strict policy to no perfumes. We had to leave the premises early because the lady next to us had on a very strong perfume and I developed an allergy attack. This was totally not acceptable.

Food is fabulous! Staff is friendly & warm.
But as the place filled up and got louder and louder I must admit we had to get louder too to hear one another speak.
