Not as good as I’d hoped. Oysters and starters were great but the risotto with my main rather bland.
Service at the table was speedy at first but with a lot of attempted up selling which really wasn’t necessary and felt as if there was an overstock of certain items. When we didn’t request dessert, We waited some time for the check and the lights were out back to full strength so definitely felt the pressure to leave! I’d read some good reviews before so maybe our experience was inconsistent.
Really good different food. The noise level was fine except for 1 super loudmouth, laughing, obnoxious customer..It was very nice for evening dinner... But we will come back for a warm weather, day light, outside dinner!!
... Not enough wine choices by the glass.. We just do not drink a bottle of wine for any price..
Varanese is our favorite place, so we wanted to try River House. Every bit as good as Varanese - outstanding food, value, and ambiance. Fine dining without pretension. We will be back.
The perfect fun evening! Aside from the parking sucking for women who wear heels. The food was awesome!
Food was delicious, server was great at helping to make choices and staging what came out first.
John does a great job with all of his restaurants.
He food was excellent, as usual, and the wait staff provided great attention to our needs.
Took my husband for his bday and family. Brought out desert for bday person and it was fabulous.
Wish that was on the desert menue. My husband loved the food and atmosphere. Everone was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend for special occasion. My husband is looking forward to the unlimited crab legs!
Very good meal at a good price
Food and service and ambiance we're 5 star. Noise level was not disruptive at all, and was actually better than silent.
Staff friendly, food amazing. Will come back.
Outstanding service. Four is went to celebrate a birthday and it was a wonderful experience.
Service was great. Food was perfect. Good variety of food. Easy to find and plenty of free parking.
Short drive from downtown Louisville. Service was superb and waitress very attentive. There were five in our party and oysters and fish dishes were well presented and good quality. One of us had the stone crabs and the size of the serving left something to be desired for the price. Seating was punctual with virtually no wait. Think it is the type of restaurant that you have to try a couple of times to appreciate the quality of the menu.
No idea if the food was good, the hostess stand was horrible. It was Breeders Cup weekend and we left an hour early to get to Riverhouse. Traffic was horrible and our Uber said we would be about 15 minutes late. I called and spoke to a young lady who thanked me for calling and assured me it wouldn't be a problem. I walked in 15 minutes late and told them my name. The response "Your reservation was for 7:30 we are not going to be able to seat you!" I explained I called and who I talked to, the response "Well we are very busy I will see what we can do". We went to the bar, had TWO drinks and were never called so we left. I understand being busy, I understand we were late, but don't treat us like garbage when we get there. I would have been perfectly fine if they said on the phone because we were going to be late it was a problem. There are a 100 other places we could have gone and did go to. To add insult to injury we get a no show notice and get yelled at by OpenTable!
Awesome dinner on Friday night! Jane our server was fantastic. Cocktail was perfect and butterfish was wonderful.
I ordered salmon and it was served on a mush of vegetables with okra the overwhelming taste
Celebrated our One Year Anniversary here. Food was wonderful, nice portions and a good value. Overlooking the river was a bonus!
Pleasantly surprised at the location, atmosphere, lovely service and delicious food. Everything about the experience was genuine and memorable. Our server Beth was a delight and knoweldgable about the menu. Everything we ordered tasted freshly and carefully prepared. We were all delighted.
The service was impeccable and overheard us talking about my girlfriends birthday and without missing a beat our waiter brought her a special "birthday" dessert. The Steak was delicious with a bacon and caramelized onion sauce, and featured a fried mac and cheese side that was incredible. The bar pours strong cocktails but still honor old classics like the Negroni and the Manhattan. One of the highlights of my time in Louisville and we'll definitely be back my next time through.
Food was great as always I love the short ribs. The drinks and the atmosphere was great we was in the back room and that was a nice area for my party of 10.
We went for our 41st Anniversary last night. It was very nice. Everyone was very friendly. Our waitress was very good and attentive. It was a very nice evening.
Alexis and Jonathon were great! The food was delicious and we were so pleased to celebrate our birthday at River House!
We have visited this restaurant many times and are always pleased by the food and the service. It is a place we will return to again and have taken friends there and has suggested it to others for their dining pleasure. The entrees were excellent as was a kale salad with butternut squash special for that evening. One disappointment this time was when we came to the dessert. We had the chocolate peanut butter tart. The crust was extremely hard, requiring us to use a knife to cut it. Ultimately we ate the filling and left most of the crust.
Food and service was phenomenal!
It was great
It was our anniversary dinner. Great selection and amazing food!
My favorite restaurant. The food is always divine. Please bring back the goose liver pate, though! It was my "chocolate"!
Outstanding service and great food-mixed drink prices a little pricey-beer OK
Wonderful location and very nice ambience, although a little more casual than we were expecting.
My hands down favorite place to eat in Louisville. Great food, cool/unique playing and great options. It is pricey but well worth it.
Nice meal. Only complaint on food was the shrimp came with two sauces. Cocktail sauce had a smoked flavor with red pepper undertone. Needed horseradish.
Only other issue was the restaurant was almost empty and they seated a large party
Right next to us so it went from pleasant to loud. Not terrible but plenty of space available to spread us out a bit.
The food was good! We were seated in an area overlooking the river so the view was beautiful as well!
We went to River House to celebrate our six year anniversary. We cannot complement this place enough. The service was outstanding and the food was incredible. The scallops with grits and succotash were one of the best meals I’ve ever had. If you are looking for a great atmosphere for a celebration try this place!
Delicious food. Good ambiance. Our waitress was very good and checked on us periodically and had recomendations when asked.
Every part of dinner was absolutely Perfect!!!
Dinner was delicious and the ambiance was great. I would definitely return and maybe eat outside the next time.
Our server was exceptional. The food more than met our expectations. Very much appreciate use of local produce. Food prepared as requested.
Food was good, Rockfish special was just so so. But liked to place a lot.
Great selection of food, made it hard to choose so we all shared!
Wonderful brunch with good prices!
