Great food and really liked the focus on maintaining COVID protocols while still trying to keep the setting as “normal” as possible.

We were celebrating our anniversary. The server was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. I had the Artic char and hubby had the Chicken Supreme. The soups were also delicious. The mushroom soup had an abundance of mushrooms and was very favourable. Hubby had Tomato Bisque. Also yummy. We shared a dessert. Chef Dan made it special by writing Happy Anniversary on the plate. Loved the ambiance and romantic music. We will definitely come back again for a relaxing romantic dinner. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Appetizers were very tasty. Salmon was a tad overcooked, but still delicious. Dessert was simple, but elegantly presented. Noise level was minimal until a larger party came and were unnecessarily loud. Service was wonderful. Will definitely return.

Wonderful place to go for supper as the food is exceptional, probably the best in Saint Albert. Our waitress could benefit from more training, although gave adequate service.

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary on September 16th and went to the Riverbank Bistro for the first time! The evening was perfect! The food and service were phenomenal! The food...the food was unbelievable! We can't remember the last time we enjoyed a meal like the one we had. So so good! Wow! We will definitely be back! If you haven't been here, you need to go and enjoy a great night out with great food! Thanks Riverbank Bistro!

This is truly a hidden gem. My wife and I had an amazing date night out since our little guy was born and although it was pricey, once you taste the food,see the presentation and how fresh everything is you will understand why.

We will return for our anniversary and can't wait to their entire menu :)!

Totally worth the extra money to be swept off your feet.

Interesting, tasty and well presented dishes in mid price range. Very friendly service if a little on the slow side. Ambience of the location is affected by social distancing making it feel a bit sparse. We would go again.

Updated menu is very good. Rack of lamb was tender and cooked to perfection. Meals are always served piping hot.
Mushroom soup was tasty as always and the French onion soup was rich and flavorful. Thanks to Dan and his staff.
