Thought we were getting the mother's day brunch but only offered a limited lunch menu so we went to a different restaurant.

Here’s the problem-we were expecting the fancy ballroom buffet and it turns out this reservation was for the usual buffet and we were seated in the aspen room. The aspen room was a little dull in my opinion. Food was good as usual, but we were very disappointed that we didn’t get the ballroom Mother’s Day brunch, maybe you should be more specific when taking reservations for a holiday??

They were not ready for our party, was not even expecting us. Took 15 minutes to talk to us at the hostess counter. Then 20 minutes before they took our drying order. We were there an hour and a half before they brought out our food... bad experience, will not be going back.

This is a great choice to go for brunch on a Saturday. I like the upscale atmosphere, the food choices, and the service. The food choices used to be even better though, although they are pretty good now. I miss all the pastries they used to have, but other than that, the omelets, prime rib, sausage or bacon, and fruit were great. The smoked salmon platter makes up for anything else missing of course, but I love pastries and would like to see them return in more abundance--however they still have a few small choices left. I do recommend this place for both weekend days. I appreciated the Saturday availability and the music. The harpist is fantastic too, if you catch him on his every other days there.

The service was great, music was great, but if you were sitting right in front of the band it would have been way too loud. We were sitting in the back of the room and it was perfect. The food was pretty good. Brown sugar bacon was my favorite. Prime rib was delicious too. I felt like there was a good selection and my daughter has to eat gluten free and had no problem eating here. Bottomless mimosas were great and our waitress Nicole was so nice and great at always being there to refill our drinks.

Service was ok but the food really lack in value and taste. We were a group of 8 on Valentine’s, three ordered their $26 ribeye medium rare and all three were serviced a half an inch thick and cooked well done, all three were sent back. Three more came out still only half an in thick and at best cooked medium to medium well. We gave up at that point and just tried to make the best of it. The meatloaf had good flavor but was served thin and a bit dry. The short ribs were good, the salmon was over cooked and the stir fry looked like a side dish when served. The appetizers were decent. First time there, don’t think any of us will return.

Great value for great food. Quiet subtle seating, close to the table next makes it cozy but not invasive. Beautiful table set up with a quiet austeicly pleasing atmosphere. If you're looking for a near upscale experience without having to pay the price this is a good place to start.

Riverside Grill is under construction (Jan 2019). Kitchen is still open but they’re seating people in a large outdated conference room - zero ambiance. Both our meals were overcooked. The coating on the almond crusted trout was more like chicken-fried steak. Went to Sapphire Room afterwards - music ok, but caters to the retiree+ crowd so heads up if you’re looking for a hip live music spot, this is not it.

The dining room has temporarily been relocated to a conference room, which I suspect contributed to the service level. That said, given the few number of guests, service should have been better. Would try again after the remodeling is complete.

I made this reservation before I went and saw Elton John. When we arrived the area was under construction which was not communicated when I made the reservation. It smelled of dust. Ambiance in the restaurant area was poor. We left and scrambled to find somewhere else to go at last minute.

We really didn't know what to expect. I made a reservation but had to alter it at the last minute. The staff was very accommodating. The music playing laid down a very immediate welcome ambiance. The staff was very helpful throughout our stay and the food was a very good and kept fresh. We will definitely come back.

We eat at the Riverside Grill only either prior to a show at the Sapphire Room. The convenience factor, along with the fact that the food is adequate for the purpose, overrides dining elsewhere. The service has been spotty, either just fine or sometimes inexplicably slow, even when not very busy. We have had a few dishes that could be called "good," but nothing to write home about. Sorry I can't be more generous with this review, but honesty is the best policy. We have really enjoyed the shows at the Sapphire Room, especially the Boise Jazz Society concerts, so we expect to continue patronizing the Grill as long as we continue to find it adequate for the purpose.

Very disappointed in the food. The best thing was the mashed potatoes! I expected something more upscale for this facility. The dressing was poor - Stove Top would have been better. The meat and fish were okay but nothing special.
I certainly won't go back for a Thanksgiving buffet.

Way too bright of an area for dinner dining. Noise from adjacent bar area was not intrusive. Food was just bland. Had squash soup which was just ok. Also meatloaf was ordered. Was covered in very dark gravy and hints of the gravy being burned. Very disappointed.

I always love when Annie is our Server at Sunday Brunch. She is very attentive, always happy and friendly to everyone. I really like their variety of food, especially the Prime Rib and omlete bar. Prices are great for an all-you-can-eat buffet and unlimited Champagne Brunch. After Brunch we usually head over to the Sand Bar and listen to live music. Great place to spend Saturday/Sunday along the River.

Today I was a little disappointed with the food. Some of the food wasn't as warm as it should be. Also, for some reason they changed the rib roast they serve. Small and dry. But, the omelettes were excellent, as well as the berry covered french toast. As always, Vianna provided exceptional service.
