    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.

    It was OK.. Higher priced from our normal (WI Supper Club- large amounts, lower prices, hOT food- on sizzle plates👌🏼) Lukewarm Food but delicious! Steaks were good! Hard to rate this place when you’ve had better.

    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.

    River House was outstanding. Our only complaint was their push on line and at the hostess desk for the wearing of "Business Casual". We packed such cloths only to see polo shirts, shorts and every type of dress on women. If you want Bus Casual, make it real. If not take it off your sites!

    First off the place is so cold. I don’t know what they have their air set at, but wear something warm. I was unable to take my coat off and my friend who is always hot was very cold also. We went to the bar first and the bar tender was standoffish and we felt he didn’t want any to put any effort to serve us. Was annoyed when we asked for menu. Our husbands both had very classy $1000 cowboy hats on, which they were asked to remove even though there was a man with his baseball hat on backward, and two women with dumpy hats on. Ridiculous. Our waitress was good the only reason I didn’t give food 5 stars is because the wedge salad as tasteless and made with butter lettuce. Had meatball appetizer for my entry as well as the Caesar salad. Both were excellent.

    We visited Nashville over Labor Day weekend, and we were looking for good places for dinner. We happened upon River House because my girlfriend loves good halibut. When we arrived, we found a beautiful restaurant with high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and a cool bar. Our waiter was competent, attentive and very funny. When they told us the wagyu meatballs would take 25 minutes as they were just being made, they offered us each a free cocktail while we waited. And they were worth the wait! Some of the best meatballs we ever had! My gf had the halibut, which was moist and delicious, and I had the prime rib, also moist and delicious. Highly recommend the place, and we will definitely be back!

    We had an absolutely WONDERFUL time!! The food, the drinks, the atmosphere were all over the top and Ryan and Macy treated us like royalty! They were both so kind and engaging, yet super professional at the same time. They are both expert servers! Long story, but Ryan went out of his way to make the night even more special for us!! We all said it was truly one of the BEST nights out we’ve had in a long time!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    For Saturday night getting a table here was a plus. We were seated quickly and service was good. Food was great except for the brocolini, it was a bit oily. Overall would totally go back and the value was worth it.
