I was luckily able to reserve for the holiday brunch buffet this December. The decorations were a lovely addition to the stunning architecture of the restaurant.
Some things to note:
Upon my arrival, the staff approached my friend and me to say that the restaurant was closed for a special event without checking whether or not we had made reservations first. That already made me feel a bit unwelcome. And although I did not request for special seating, there was an strange occurrence where we were led to a table and told "Oh. This seat was reserved for you" and was told another staff had relocated another couple to that seat. We had to strangely stand there while the manager (?) and staff talked it out. I didn't mind, but if they didn't tell us the seat was reserved in the first place, I wouldn't be as bothered.
The food was nicely labelled and prepared. Although I wish the same effort was placed for the dessert table as it was 1) placed in a isolated location down the hall 2) the dessert was only simple labelled "Holiday desserts. May contain traces of nuts, diary...." rather than having the staff spend more time to label each dessert. I was also little upset with the turkey, since it was on the dry side - despite it being a special holiday event, you would think more effort would be put in ensuring it's quality.
Came for the holiday brunch buffet. For the price, the quality and quantity of food was very good. Service is great as usual, very attentive. Always dishes cleared. Like the quiet atmosphere and the lookout onto the course.
Always loved there $29 3 course meal event! The restaurant has a beautiful setting and vibe also.
The service was spotty. Our server didn't spend any time explaining anything to us. Her English was only rudimentary. Water was pour into glasses and she scuttled off without saying a word. Not asking us if we wanted anything else. The food was only Ok. A casear salad can vary widely. Mine was at the low end of Ok. No Bacon bits, or anchovies, tasteless croutons, and not enough dressing or parmesan cheese. And way too much food. I could not eat it all. Nor could my friend. It seems a shame to waste food in this day and age. My advice; improve the quality of the food and cut back on the amount served. Also, better training for the staff.
Now I was a 2nd time at this location and was very satisfied. My friend which I had invitied had recomandet this palce already.
I surprised my boyfriend by taking him out for the 3 course menu and he was quite pleased and happy. It was also my first time dining at the restaurant and i was treated with exceptional utmost resonating quality service! Highly recommend this place. The decor is also really magical and pretty. Washrooms are well maintained. Which is a bonus!
Excellent service from server Tuccy- friendly, cheerful, and very attentive to all our needs. So nice to have Kevin also come to welcome us. Food is great tasting and very generous portions. So nice to have a meal in
such a pleasant, quiet surrounding and at such a reasonable price.
Yes, we were thinking of have a big family gathering at the end of the year, but when I called to make reservation, I was told that Riverway will be closed during the holiday time, and we were all quite disappointed.
The 3-course dinner special is an excellent value. The food is delicious and the price is excellent. The ambiance is very nice. Lots of free parking outside. Service was a bit slow to start but the food came quickly. Overall, I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great service. Amble space for a comfortable dining experience. Good selection of drinks. The food was good overall but the steak was not on par.
Yes I would recommend it. I’ve already referred friends!
Courteous staff; attentive service; fair execution of quality food.
However, the carbonara is a disappointment due to lack of eggs & flavor. For $23, I have tasted a lot better than this.
Love the 3-course menu. Always a treat
Our server Kevin was very attentive and thoughtful. We would definitely go back again.
Good food and good service
Good food, good service, I would like to come again.
Fantastic food, menu and value. Service was a bit slow but overall still a great experience! Will absolutely recommend and return!
We were celebrating my father’s birthday with our family. The server sent us some great non-Alcoholic drinks as we don’t drink. It was nice of her to do that. And also lighted candle for the dessert. I thought since we took the special course meal package, the service may not be as great, but our server was fabulous! Thank you to make the night so special for us!
Excellent service from server we call Tootsie-so cheerful, friendly and attentive with a big smile. As we have been here before Kevin recognized us and came over to give us a big welcome! Everyone here are so friendly, food is always delicious and and served in a wonderful ambience.
I enjoyed a simple dinner in a nice and quiet restaurant. It was a little cool for my liking --it was quite cold out that night. I had to wear my jacket throughout dinner. Good money for the value. We had the $29.00 entree dinner with appetizer and desert.
The place was beautiful food was excellent service it was good I really like that place I will go there again
The three course menu is very nice.
Easy access, free and easy parking close to clubhouse, pleasant environment, tables spaces for private conversation and parallel to the glass wall so both of us could enjoy the setting / view. Low piano music did not intrude on conversation. Would be a fabulous event venue eg wedding
not sure we would dine again. 1 out of 8 steaks was returned, although an additional 2 should have been...diners were reluctant. Steaks were not as tasty as expected. Could barely taste dressing on salad, although shrimps were done nicely.
Waffle was chewy + rather tough. Could not tell ice cream flavour. Was not up to our standards. Service
3 Course Meal for $29! is the Best Value in Vancouver considering a WS Beyond Beef Burger with mushroom and avocado will cost you $19. I've had the Steak & Lobster, Lamb shank and the Chicken/Lobster Linguine. The Shrimp & Spinach Salad is excellent! The 2 choices of desserts are great to end the evening. I hope to go again and again until it ends.
Very good food and atmosphere! Their $29 3 course dinner is exceptional!
Not enough server, the food is great either the $29 3 courses, taste great
Second time here, enjoyed the food and ambience.
Steak was cooked perfectly.
Cozy place, will come back again but definitely need to make reservation in advance
Dessert was delicious. The steak was a little bit more on the medium well than medium rare, but still delicious. Service was excellent as well
Great! We had a lovely evening celebrating a special birthday!
Nice setting; atmosphere is great; very good green view; service excellent; food with good value; many parking space;
We love the $29 3 course menu. Great service and tasty food.
If you are looking for a 3 course meal that isn't overpriced, and prepared very nicely, Riverway will surprise you.
Excellent service and delicious food, especially the steak.
The food was excellent, the service outstanding and the ambient very pleasant.
Excellent. Server was very attentive. Will be bsck again
Food was fantastic, as always. Service was prompt and polite. Excellent value for the cost. Highly recommended!
We had a great lobster dinner at Riverway. Really enjoy the food & service.
We tried the 29 dollar 3 course menu. It was very good and came in big portion. Loved it! Would definitely come back again.
