Our server was friendly, although she did forget to bring me new cutlery for my entree. The appetizers, entrees and desserts were all wonderfully tasty. We will be eating here again.

RBB was an amazing food experience. Our server was great, always around when we needed her but not hovering. Made good wine recommendation and extra friendly. The food was fabulous, had the lamb shank and it was perfection. Definitely will recommend to friends and family! Great for those special occasions.

This place is fantastic! Such a gem in the heart of St.Albert. We celebrated our anniversary there and it was a very romantic and intimate setting, with delicious and original dishes, well priced items, great drinks and an overall lovely experience. I have already recommended this place to multiple people and plan to return again soon!

For appetizers I would definitely recommend the forest mushroom soup or the green salad. For main courses, the beef tenderloin or the short rib received rave reviews.

The service and the food was outstanding! My boyfriend and I came out for dinner for New Year’s Eve and had an incredible time. We both ordered the bisque soups with hazelnuts, he had the pheasant, I had the filet mignon, and we both had the molten chocolate lava cake for dessert. We enjoyed our food so much. The presentation, the taste, and the service were spot on. We have already told our friend and family about this place and we intend on coming again soon!

This was our first visit and a special occasion for us, our table was private and we found romantic, however it was very loud and echo like throughout the restaurant.

The food was amazing and we did feel worth the value.

My husband and I always wanted to dine here, as it is set in a beautiful old Victorian home on the river.
Thanks to a gift certificate for our 25th Anniversary from my brother and sister in law, we now had a good excuse to go. We went with another couple who were just as excited to eat here after viewing the menu online. We both ordered the short-rib and the lamb entrees. The serving portions were a healthy size and very satisfying. The meat literally melted in your mouth and the roasted brussel sprouts were to die for!
The waitress was very knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions for our drinks and meal which we took her up on, and were not disappointed. I highly recommend this beautiful little dining establishment, and look foreword to coming here again.

This was our first visit to Riverbank Bistro. We had a table window and loved the seclusion and views of outside. I think we would have been happy at any table, though. Our server was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. The food was amazing - fresh and beautifully garnished. We shared the Crispy Cauliflower, Arctic Char, Vegetarian Wellington, Key Lime Pie, Creme Caramel, and a bottle of wine. All were magnificent. The prices were very reasonable. I would say this is currently the best restaurant in St. Albert, and will return soon. Thank you for a lovely evening.
