Our server was so new she could not answer basic menu questions and wouldn’t even offer to find the information. Had to ask for refills and food was poorly seasoned. I would not return to this restaurant
River House is my husband's favorite fine dining restaurant in Louisville. They kept true to their excellence in food, ambiance and service on this visit.
Yes, I would recommend River House Restaurant. The Fish and Chips were some of the best I have every had. I would have given one more star, if the seating had been better. When I placed the reservation, I requested a table facing the river. The table given was on the side.
A little loud on the patio due to the live “rock”
Music next door. Otherwise a beautiful setting with great food, good service and reasonable prices.
Went to River house for our anniversary, once we walked in and we told them our name they immediately were told by "Happy Anniversary" by several staff members. Staff was all pleasant and knowledgeable. Food was presented well and tasted amazing! Portion size was great, we both had leftovers. We had a great experience at River House for our anniversary and would not only go back but also recommend them.
love the outdoor area. The avocado salad was delicious
We sat on the patio as to enjoy the river view and cool weather. There were quite a few sparrows and other birds that kept a close watch on our food and deserted tables with food. While funny to watch, it was bothersome when the birds flew under our umbrella over our table. But not sure what could be done about that issue in a humane way.
Food was delicious (entire party of 9 raved about how good everything tasted). Will most definitely be returning.
Charred octopus dish was amazing along with the crab stuffed lobster salad. Everything was delicious!
Impeccable service and amazing food. Baked Brie appetizer was amazing. Two of the people in our party got the special for dinner. The beef short rib was the best thing at the table. The pasta with seafood was amazing. The sweet potato cobbler for dessert was the perfect finishing touch. Highly recommend!! One of the best places in Louisville.
We made reservations for my birthday for Saturday, June 8 at 8:30 pm. We arrived a bit early and sat at the bar to have a few drinks. Our hostess sat us as soon as the table was cleared and immediately our waitress was there to offer drinks and appetizers. I ordered one dozen raw oysters, east and west coast mixed which I shared with my boyfriend, and our friends ordered the clams. Everything came quickly and was fresh and delicious. My boyfriend ordered the giant tower that had EVERYTHING on it!!! My friends ordered broiled salmon and baby back ribs. EVERYTHING was delicious.
I do wish they sold Blue Point oysters, those are consistent and delicious, our oysters were definitely on the smaller side. The lobster tail was a bit on the chewy side and the king crab leg was hard to open. Other than those few items the meal was very good and we will definitely come back for another visit!
Good food, nice portions, reasonable prices, a little noisy. Overall very nice place.
Had a fantastic meal. Everything was perfect from the appetizers to the dessert. Outstanding experience.
Excellent service complimented a great meal. It was slightly compromised by our location adjacent to a door to the deck. Servers were going in and out throughout our meal and frequently seemed to be carrying trays over my head within a few inches. It was further problematic in that what was assumed to be air conditioning condensation was dripping on us infrequently. This is specific to the location of the table and not the whole restaurant. Have visited many times before without issue.
River House serves fresh seafood that is hard to find anywhere else this area. My wife and I love the Raw seafood bar, especially the pacific coast oyster selection.
The smoked booker old fashioned is also a personal favorite. It’s like warmed butterscotch that sneaks up behind you with a kick.
The food, wine, service, and ambiance is ALWAYS exceptional! We had another lovely time here.
We had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant. Our server, Carrie, made the night so much fun! Every dish was wonderful! I would highly recommend the grilled octopus! Yum! All of us loved our entree choices. The food came quickly and everyone that stopped by our table to deliver something was funny and accommodating. It was my parents anniversary, and they had such a wonderful time. Carrie made the night so much fun! Highly recommend!
We were celebrating a birthday! Service and food were outstanding!!! Everyone enjoyed the grilled oysters! Wow!!!!!
My wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary at Riverhouse. We were greeted by everyone with a happy anniversary throughout the evening. Our server, Corbett. Made drink and food recommendations that were right on. My wife had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and I had the beef tips with fried oysters. Both were outstanding. I must also mention the incredible grilled octopus which was the best I’ve ever had. Corbett even brogue is the most amazing cornbread in an iron skillet with bourbon flavored butter. We shamelessly devoured it all in minutes.
Great place for dinner right in the river. Nice feel, friendly staff and excellent food!
We had a work dinner with visiting fellow employees from our parent office that came there for dinner Tuesday night and had a reservation inside but was such a nice evening ask to sit on patio; very accommodating but sat them in the direct sunlight which became very uncomfortably hot and sun was right in their eyes; if they would have at least brought them an umbrella for shade would have resolved the problem. They did not ask so that is on them but just thought a good waitress would have picked up on that. Still love your place but thought you would like to know so they might be more aware of those situations. Thank you
Love this restaurant! Mine and my husbands favorite place to dine if we want an experience! The food is consistantly good as well as service. And the prices are fair for an upscale restaurant.
Service was very poor - abrupt, slow and forgetful. That was the only downside to a terrific experience. The food and the view were excellent!
High School Graduation dinner for my son. Service was really slow. Burger was not great but other two meals were excellent. Nice patio and views.
We went for my sons High School graduation and were thrilled the weather was beautiful and we were able to eat outside! However when we arrived there was a lawn crew mowing and weed eating right near our table and it was loud and smelled of gasoline...the manager did apologize and said it was the restaurant next door, King Fish, who had the crew out on a busy dining day ...he went and talked to the crew and said he would call King Fish manager which was wonderful ...however I expected we would get a free dessert at least for the graduate but no gesture was made to offer a little something for the 45 mins of noise, smell and debris blown around. Just added a bit of disappointment to an otherwise great meal. We will return! Hopefully the restaurants can plan lawn care prior to openings or on down days. A busy Sat lunch after lots of local graduation customers was poorly planned.
Beautiful evening on outside patio. Server was top notch, and food was exceptional. Couldn’t imagine a better evening out!!
Go here to have a drink and maybe an appetizer while overlooking the Ohio River. Do not go here expecting a great meal. We had shrimp cocktail and fried oysters as apps and they were quite good. Both entrees we ordered were disappointing. The salmon was supposedly smoked and seasoned with Makers Mark, but it tasted like plain salmon to me and the veggie medley beneath it was lame. The fried seafood platter was overpriced ($33) and overbreaded.
I enjoyed dining at riverhouse. I was received by the front desk graciously shown to my table and introduced to the server. Service was great, food was wonderful and a good time was had by all four of us. I look forward to returning to riverhouse soon.
A belated birthday dinner from my sister. A beautiful night on the patio and our server Ali was outstanding!!
Everything was great with only 2 issues that stood out that could be changed or have your team pay a little more attention too. The outside seating is wonderful, it was just a little dark so better lighting on the tables would be nice. Also, we were there for our 10 year wedding anniversary on a Thursday night at 9:30, there only about 5 other tables, I’ve been a server and I understand sections and convenience but we told them we were there for an anniversary and they sat us at a table right in the middle and by a very loud and obnoxious table; paying attention to why people are there when they tell you would go a long way. We would’ve liked a more intimate table and they had plenty open. All that being said, the food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic, our server in particular was absolutely perfect, especially for being there so late, we weren’t rushed to leave or anything.
We have been to the RH several times, and we have always had good experiences. The food and service were both excellent on this visit (as well as on our previous visits).
Food was excellent, service was excellent, and everyone enjoyed the menu and had a great meal!
We had a get together lunch with a retired colleague and had a fabulous experience. Food is fresh, delicious and appealing. We also had a delightful waiter.
Our Anniversary diner was fantastic. Chef Varanese is one of the best anywhere.
Excellent food and nice venue. Interesting dishes and super cocktails.
Tho while experience was wonderful. It is hard to find good quality seafood in the Kentucky and Indiana area, but I can now say that I have found a good place.
The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and attentive, we enjoyed the view of the river. My only complaint, a minor one, was that the restaurant could use some sound baffling. We will dine here again on our next visit to Louisville.
This was our second visit, it was amazing. We're wil be back again. Jeremy was an exceptional waiter this time and our first time Tyler was exceptional waiter too.
We had a wonderful experience at River House and will definitely return. Each of us ordered something different...Diver Scallops, Oysters, Salmon and Beef Short Ribs ... all were excellent. My husband enjoyed his Bourbon Flight and, of course, we loved the river view! A very enjoyable evening!
An awesome location right on the river for a delicious birthday dinner!
Server never acknowledged the special occasion (birthday). The server acted annoyed with us. She came to our table infrequently and we had to find her to get our bill. Please... don’t let the service ruin your fabulous food!!!
Great food and fantastic service.
