    We had a wonderful experience! The building is beautiful and modern but within walking distance to broadway street. Service was impeccable and really made for a pleasant evening and flow of food. We ordered a variety of steak options and fish and not one disappointed. The creamy potatoes and Brussels sprouts were also delicious. If you have any room for dessert, the bread pudding was so good! As a bonus, Mondays were 1/2 price wine bottles! We will definitely return on our next Nashville trip!

    We lovaed this restaurant. After a number of dissapointing restaurants that had been reviewed well but were ordinary when we actually went there-this was a big win. We had an amazing waiter- Sam was a skilled professional and an awfully nice guy. He kept ahead of our needs and made us feel special- and what more can you ask for than that? Well, you could ask for amazing food and that's what we had, The crab cakes had no filler to speak of and were yummy- the steak was melt in your mouth and the sides were spectacular. We loved the key lime pie- and we especially loved the cocktails. The place itself is classy and spacious. You really can't do better.

    The food was delicious and will keep us coming back. The service was good but could have been a little more attentive. We had to ask for beverage refills and remind our waiter of a drink order.

    Communicate with your server if you have a schedule or somewhere to be (like the symphony across the street) otherwise they may course out your meal such that you have an hour to watch your wife eat a salad and 10 minutes with your meal, sides, and wine....food was excellent, just did not get to savor it.

    Really lovely spot with great food and nice service. However, beware that they accept reservations very close to the time the kitchen closes, and in our case let us know the kitchen was closing for the afternoon (at 2) shortly after we arrived at 1:30. We would have happily come earlier had we known, for this made our late lunch feel rushed.

    Disappointed in my dinner. I would have expressed my thoughts, although no one asked. The Asian Seabass was oily and not flavorful. Broccolini was hard and small portion. We had to ask for bread, etc.. My husband had steak and it was good. I’m not recommending it to friends and family.

    Despite a few tired and grumpy employees having to adjust and cheer up, the food is wonderful and made to order with or without seasonings, butter, or oil. The building is beautiful, 25 feet of floor to rooftop glass walls on three sides. The bar is enormous and able to accommodate a lot of seated people. Modern marble and leather seating, low light ambiance, make The River House a must eat.

    Shanghai shrimp was wonderful. Salad was good but waiter did not ask what kind of dressing we wanted and came out with blue cheese. Wife set it back for thousand island. Steaks were delicious. Twice baked potatoes came out cold and at these prices that should NEVER happen!! Was almost finished with steak before replacement potatoes were served but those were hot and were comped. Would try again but will be a while before we do.
