River Café Ratings and Reviews
If you're looking to take a date somewhere great or celebrate a special occasion, look no further than River Cafe. Great setting, terrific food, and amazing service. The servers are knowledgeable about the menu, very friendly, and help make for a great experience. Would highly recommend to anyone not afraid to spend a few dollars on a great night out.
The server was great. Friendly, informative, attentive.
Meal selection is limited. Very little choices.
Prices are exorbitant for what you get.
Boar was very chewy and grisly. The server took it off the bill.
The path and bridge getting there are very poorly lit and a bit sketchy.
Overall a disappointment. There are much better alternatives in Calgary. Take a pass on River Cafe.
The octopus appetizer was recommended by the server, she said it was amazing. not something I would order again or recommend to anyone.
the carrot cake for dessert lacked flavour
our friends ordered vegetables for the side with their main, all they received was a pile of lettuce.
River Cafe is my favourite Calgary restaurant. The very smell of it is beautiful and familiar to me. This time we were there for lunch and most of us had the Turkish-style eggs, a dish that was original, delicious and satisfying. The restaurant's location on Prince's Island allows for a gorgeous view, no matter what the season, and on this particular day it was sunny and wintry, which is just what we wanted as visitors from rainy, grey Vancouver. We had a lovely time, as we always do at this wonderful place; the short walk over from Eau Claire allows you to decompress a bit as you make your way there. I couldn't recommend it more highly. The service is always warm without being oppressive.
