Felt rushed and having a pre set meal made it a bit more expensive but totally understand at valentines that they would have one

The food was delicious but I was disappointed that we were in the overflow section as there’s a big difference in ambiance. Also, I found it got quite loud when they sat the last two tables.

Best beef carpaccio I've ever had. I always order that dish in any restaurant I go to that has it, and the one at RBB is the winner! The steaks are crazy good, always cooked exactly how we ask (I like medium rare and it just melts in your mouth). My partner is obsessed with the mushroom soup, the fries are crispy and perfectly seasoned, and the peppercorn brandy sauce that comes with the steak is to die for. Highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic date as the wait staff are very attentive and the ambiance is wonderful.

Our servicer recommended a great bottle of wine. The Winter Green Salad has everything, cashews feta and so much flavor! The 12 ounce strip loin was cooked perfect medium rare. Loved the warm macaroon cookie with the Crème Brule.

The Four of us enjoy the food & being that it’s a small place with few tables, it felt very safe. Wait staff were very careful with sanitizing & there were only 2 other tables with people at them. My friend loves the waffles, My husband likes the big breakfast & I really like their vegetarian eggs Benedict. We’ve gone a few times now & plan to return, unless there’s a shutdown.

Delicious food on a quiet patio. This is a favourite place for us, as a special night out. The menu is diverse and the food is always made with care and attention to flavour and texture. Short ribs, mushroom soup, beet salad, great wine selection. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

What a fantastic meal! We came from Deep South Edmonton and we’re not disappointed. The reviews are correct! The staff were attentive and friendly, the food was delicious and hot and the chef even came out to say hello and check on our meal. What a fantastic date night out. We cannot wait to go back again soon!

We enjoyed another fabulous evening at the Riverbank Bistro. Food was outstanding. Three of us started with their amazing avocado bruchetta while my husband ALWAYS has the mushroom soup, his all time favourite. His entre of schnitzel was rated as excellent. Our friend declared his tenderloin was the best steak he had ever had. I chose the Arctic char and as always it was delicious. Flourless chocolate cake and creme brule were the perfect endings. We felt very comfortable as Dan and his team have taken Covid 19 very seriously. Our friends who are from Edmonton can't wait to come back.
