The first time we went to River House it was pretty good. This time not so much. Steak was not cooked correctly even after I sent it back. Asparagus seemed as if they pulled it from a microwave. My wife wanted to send hers back as well and didn’t. There are better places for the money. We probably won’t go back.
Great food! Wonderful service!!
The food was good, the view outstanding, the service...let's just say our presence at the River House was pretty low on the list of our server's priority list. We didn't order any appetizers, desserts, and only one adult beverage, that seemed to be an issue with her. We won't be back, but I wouldn't tell anyone to not try it. Call it a recommendation with qualifications.
We always have a great experience at River House. Our server Jess (we have had him many times) is the absolute best! He makes the experience top notch! The manager Jeff is always a joy to see as well and makes every guest feel special.
Your server Andrew Locuto made this night not just an amazing meal at a great location with the amazing view, but an unforgettable EXPERIENCE.
I’ve been to your restaurants a few times now and I’ll NEVER forget this night!
How many times do you leave a place with souvenirs that included a framed pic of yourself and guests?? Having had cigars and the feeling that you made a friend for life?!
I’ll tell you: almost Never.
We will be back and we will be requesting his area because he’s the key to the fun we had!
Thank you for the total package! Never let him go unless you’re promoting him to GM. Or co-owner. 😏
Excellent food and ambience, service help were exemplary especially jovial SVP.
Great service and a memorable dinner > Looking forward to dining there again in the very near future.
Our service was absolutely terrible. The waitress was rude and did not give back change to one of our guests. The food however was wonderful. So if you don’t mind the rudeness then definitely go eat there.
My friend and I met for lunch. The food was wonderful, and, as always, we enjoyed the view of the river. One of our favorite places.
We had a great dinner. We got the V Tower. It was awsome!
The covered patio was a great place to be able to enjoy a break in the weather and if it did happen to start raining again, we were still ok. The food was delicious, fresh, well prepared and presented in a pleasing fashion. I would definitely recommend River House Restaurant & Raw Bar to friends and family.
Very good food and personable service. Fast, friendly and delicious.
The best part of our dining experience was our waitress, she was friendly and attentive. Cocktails were ok but the food was a disaster. Rubbery octopus appetizer, a raw rib eye steak when I ordered medium rare and a below par cheese platter that provided mere morsals of only halfway decent cheese outnumbered by of all things a bunch of raisens. The only thing that was good was the kale salad.
They helped to make Derby night special
We visited the River House while in town for the Derby. We sat on the patio which had a beautiful view. Our Oysters were some of the best I’ve ever had. The entire meal was amazing and our server was attentive and very personable. Would highly recommend going!
The menu offers items that may not be available everywhere and prepared in such a tasteful splendor, the view from the patio is breathtaking and the service is quick and polite.
Great seafood starters. It needs more seafood entrees and something Cajun or like from Louisiana
GREAT RESTAURANT IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION OVERLOOKING THE RIVER> THER SERVICE WAS ABSOLUTELY GREAT> THE FOOD WAS EXCELENT> HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ALL MY FRIENDS>
Lovely! Enjoyed a delicious lunch outside overlooking the river.
Love this place!!! We visit several times a year! I had some issues this time with them running out of the steak I ordered. I was upset about it, but the food was still good.
The food was really good! I really enjoyed the v style oysters! The service could have been better (our waiter was very forgetful), but overall I was pleased. I will be back!
There are lots of choices! Everything I have tried has been excellent! The view from the upper deck is wonderful.
I can’t say enough great things about the staff!! Professional, attentive and happy to accommodate special requests!
It is my go to place!!
We went for our anniversary and it was the best night! The food was amazing and the cocktails were innovative! It was a night to remember!
Facility was clean and the service was great at the table and the bar
Fish and chips order was disappointing. We notified waitress and manager.
Very good food, great selection, and excellent service. We had reservations and had no waiting.
Great food, great service. It was only our second time out since Covid started, so it was a good choice. They were keeping tables far enough apart, etc. We had a great time.
Excellent service, good specials and recommendations
The service was excellent, the food was outstanding. All you could hear at our table were oohs and ahhhs! Not one complaint among 8 of us!
We had a lovely dinner at River House Restaurant. The food was delicious, as usual. The flavors of the succotash and tasso ham cheddar grits are so delectable. The service of the entire staff was impeccable as well. We will be back!
Had a blast River House is awesome every time. Beautiful view of river and sunset.
Hunter’s service was terrific. Food was delicious as always. Best river view and wonderful outdoor seating. Not a big fan of the covered outdoor space, but understand the rationale for it. Will return.
Definitely will visit again. The food and atmosphere outstanding!
The food is consistently delicious! The presentation is beautiful, the service prompt, and the atmosphere- whether seated inside or out - is wonderful! You can't beat the gorgeous views over the Ohio! This is one of our favorite restaurants in Louisville.
Food was better than ever! Very professional service, great ambiance. Loved it!
Good food, good drinks, and good service!
Service was extremely slow considering there was not many customers in the restaurant. Food was slow in coming out and cold. The grouper poor boy barely had fish on it, soup was cold. Etc...
