We decided to celebrate our anniversary somewhere new to us in Easton, we weren’t disappointed!! The River Grille overall was an outstanding dining experience. I had the short rib entree; very tender and a lot of flavor. My husband had the filet mignon and says it was perfect!! Both entrees came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable as well. The portion sizes are not big, but just enough to fill you.

Quite possibly the loudest restaurant we've been too. Food was fabulous but loud enough to keep us away. Shame.

Food was good, but felt rushed. Food came very quickly and taken away very quickly. "Chef" came by table twice. Felt like he was chasing us out. Meal took less than an hour. 1.5 hours for a fine dining meal more appropriate. We ordered entrees that were over $30, plus cocktails, so it was not like we were being cheap. Kind of ruined the night even though food was good. Have eaten at most of the fine dining restaurants in the Lehigh Valley over the 31 years I have lived here and have never experienced this before. Will have to think twice about ever going back. So many other good restaurants to choose from.

Everything was great overall. I had the soup special, French onion soup. It was just ok. First, not the traditional French onion soup which they should have mentioned and second, it was warm-ish, not hot.

Food and service was great after we asked to move to the front of the restaurant. It is way too loud in the back room. Once we moved to the front it was all excellent!

We’ve been going to River Grille for many years. Always have a good experience. This last time, the food came out very late. The manager realized it was going to be late and brought us an appetizer before we even knew what was going on. He apologized in advance. That made a potentially bad experience turn out very well. As always, the food was outstanding.

Our service was slow, not typical of river grille. Server was very nice but not very attentive. Drinks had to be sent back as they were made incorrectly. Water girl spilled water on the table and never wiped it. Had to get the manager to do it. We will return , hoping for the service we usually receive.

Great service and atmosphere at River Grille. The appetizers (calamari and coconut shrimp) and meals (short ribs and lobster pappardelle) that we had were amazing! River Grille is one of our favorite spots in Easton!

Overall this place was good but pretty average. We sat in the side room when you first walk in. It was incredibly loud. So loud in fact that our server literally had to scream the specials at us. We got appetizers of fried calamari and tuna tartar. I do not recommend the calamari it was very chewy. My fiancé said the Tuna Tartar was pretty good. We also did salads which were good. Overall the service was great. I enjoyed my filet and my fiancé had swordfish that he said was average. All and all it was a good experience just really no “it” fact that would have us running back.

OK- There were several things that were problematic on our visit. First things first - I got sick after my meal (shrimp scampi) and I honestly never get sick from food. Also- one person in our party - got a pizza- and didn't feel so great later in the night. Interestingly, he refrigerated the leftovers immediately. He was going to throw it out the next day -and we all smelled it and it was a really bad odor (like cheese going bad). Beautiful ambience- but extremely loud. The people at the next table (a very long table) were literally screaming so loudly across to each other on opposite ends of the table. Our waiter was initially attentive, but when my husband refused the special (surf and turf) due to the price ($48) and decided on a another entree - the attitude of our waiter changed dramatically. He had an accusatory tone when I allowed my 23 year old daughter to have a taste of my drink (asking who was drinking it)- If he wanted to ask for I.D. politely - he certainly could have. Very odd. Bad experience. Our whole party of 6 was disappointed

Great food and great service. We were there on a Tuesday night so it wasn't crowded or noisy, the latter of which, in the age of too much noise everywhere, I very much enjoy and require when dining.

This was our first time at River Grille and it won't be our last. The food was excellent, with a nice variety on the menu and the service was extremely good. We were very pleased that the staff was so attentive - never and empty water glass. This will be our new go-to restaurant in downtown Easton.

I had made reservations earlier that day and we were seated at the table with the column. It wasn’t overly busy or crowded and neither of us liked the seating so we asked to move to the bar. This request to improve our dining experience appeared to put off the staff and we received a Luke warm reception while at the bar. The food was great but the service not very welcoming once we got past the hostess.

I made reservations for 4 since I knew it would be busy on a Friday night during restaurant week. We arrived for our reservation and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. We got a few drinks in the bar area while we waited. The sangria was delicious. We were seated and promptly greeted. 3 of us ordered from the restaurant week menu - there was plenty to choose from. The calamari was excellent, the lobster bisque the best I ever had and the penne vodka was extremely good. We had a GREAT dinner and the service was 2nd to none. We can't wait for our next visit.

Only disappointment was size of slice of apple crumble cheesecake at the end, which by the way was not part of resteraunt week menu. Give a more generous slice!
