Floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the Forks of the Thames. A modern and contemporary restaurant offering an aspirational dining experience while still maintaining its casual feel. All food is made to order from scratch in house so any food allergies, issues can usually be accommodated.

Happy Hour is Thursday-Saturday from 4-6pm -- half price appetizers, select wine, beer and drinks (includes lobster rolls and dynamite shrimp) .

After hours (evenings) entrance is on the south side, stairs to the second level. Daytime entrance is through Museum London.

Please note: we cannot guarantee a window table request as almost every reservation requests a window table request and we only have so many window tables. We will try our best to give you the best seat available & we hope you enjoy your visit at the River Room.

For private events or issues, please email Jess @ info@northmoore.ca

    The food was divine. We ordered the Arctic Char, Duck Confit and Wagyu skirt steak with truffle fries. We simply died and went to heaven with every bite.

    The food was very good. The service was friendly but were were asked NINE times if there was anything else we needed. We were happily eating and chatting and our complete order was on the table, so we wondered if we were being rushed. We were. Even though there were several other diners still eating, we were given the bill while still eating and asked by another server if we were finished. It was Father’s Day and my dad took the hint and said we had better hurry and leave. Such a shame.

    A birthday dinner with my wife. Our server, Cathy, was very friendly, knowledgeable and took my wife’s allergy (avocado) very seriously. The food quality was excellent. We won’t be coming back very often though, as $200 for dinner for two is too expensive. $12 - $14 for a dessert is outrageous. We like this place, but just cannot afford the expense. Sadly.

    Setting is lovely but windows need cleaning. Service was very good. Appetizers were good but beef rib was tough and chewy. Arctic char was undercooked. Lighting was quite bright negating the potential of great ambience. We have had good meals here before and may give another chance, but this was a bit of a letdown.
