Out server Andrew was OUTSTANDING! He made our experience amazing. He went above and beyond what servers job is and quite frankly we only want Andrew when we go back. We also need Andrew to work at some other restaurants. He was personable, understanding, funny, and attentive. River house needs to give him a raise! He also praises his teammates and is a positive influence on all the other team members. What a privilege and a pleasure to sit in his section! Make sure if you to River House to ask for Andrew!
Fried green tomatoes are the best I’ve had—adding bits of goat cheese and bacon made the dish a stand out. Lump crab cakes not so much—texture of baby food with no lumps in sight. Tasso ham grits just as they should be. Bourbon peach with ice cream dessert worth the calories!
At 95 degrees, too hot to eat outdoors to enjoy the river view, a definite draw for out of towners
one of our steaks was under cooked, we sent it back and when it came back it was over cooked
I ordered a glass of wine to be served with my meal (never got it)
Not much to look at. We were seated in a booth at the front of the restaurant. Our server Maddie was exceptional. The wine choices were nice and the choice of entree's was wide. There was just something missing for the prices on the menu. Things were just not up to snuff or let's say off for that price range. There was no view, no ambiance and no warmth.
Making reservations was easy, we wanted outside and deck was shaded and had fans going. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped recommend items and substitutions. Specials were great and so were the cocktails. So cool to see the chefs picking herbs for the meals right from the deck. Excellent view of the Ohio river.
Fantastic food! Amazing service! Wonderful atmosphere! Drinks were made just right! Was a wonderful evening with friends, made even more so by your professional staff and perfectly prepared food!!
Overall very enjoyable. Smoked Burbon Old Fashion was very good
It was a much better experience than we had a few yrs ago
We took out of town guest, service and food great. One of our favorite places in Louisville.
Andrew, is the BEST waiter I’ve ever had. The 5 friends and I enjoyed his shenanigans, smooth talks about food and life and the little surprises he had in store for us. You have got to get this guy as your waiter. Seriously. You won’t regret it.
Server was very attentive but not efficient. Food was average. Overpriced for what you get. Noise level is way to loud.
Went there for our 28th anniversary and the experience was great. Great food, good service, nice views and I know we'll be back. It was our first time and we've lived in Louisville for over 3 years.
We went for my husbands birthday...but need to go much more than special occasions. Everyone at the table loved their food - each course. It was all delicious and the server was wonderful! Such a pleasant 2 hours visiting with family, enjoying the Riverview and having a delicious meal. We will be back much quicker this time. :)
Great food... beverages... and ambiance! Will return!!!
Salmon, mussels and steak were very good. Busy night but service tried, sunset was great.
Everything was wonderful except order. My friend told me not to get the grouper cheek sandwich and she was right. To much bread and its was tastless. I finally decided to just eat the grouper cheeks and they were good, just not on hoggie role that large. All other 7 dinners were great.
Wonderful food! Place was packed but we had lovely outdoor table.
The best meal we had in Louisville while on a conference trip. Everyone loved their food and the ambiance was great! We sat on the porch, it is louder, with live music, so if you prefer a quieter environment request to sit inside. Can’t wait to make this place an annual tradition!
My favorite restaurant in Louisville! Never disappoints!
Beautiful spot on the river for a gorgeous sunset! Friendly , very good service and very fresh fish! Truly enjoyed it!
Excellent restaurant for seafood and a great raw selection of favorites.
Love river house! The food and service are always fabulous!
Food and drinks were delicious. Our server provided Amazing service. He even offered to give us a ride back to our hotel.
Another great meal at the River House! Perfect night on the patio and our server Rachel was great.
Just outstanding food and service!!
Server and food excellent ❣️
no additional comments however it seems that the site requires at least 50 characters. A black mark for the site not the restaurant.
Waitress was great and hilarious. Seafood was good but steak was as subpar.
Great food, service, and environment. Enjoyed our dinner!
It was a great evening and the food was excellent.
Sat outside, nice view of river. Waiter very helpful. Food great but pricey. Would go back
Beautiful views, delicious food, kind people. Will be going again!
We had a great experience! The food was great, our service was top-notch and the view from the outdoor patio is beautiful! Their bread pudding was the cherry on top of the evening. We can't wait to come back!
Wonderful dining - especially the seafood- while overlooking the river. Most beautiful place in Louisville!
First time there. Was impressed by the entire set up. Our waiter was excellent with menu recommendations. The meals and dessert were as advertised served hot and timely plus priced great. Will be back
Unusual service at River House this evening. Took 1.5 hours for our food to be brought to our table. When it arrived, they brought me the wrong plate.... (not what I ordered).
This was my only bad experience at River House, I've been there several times with excellent experiences previously. I think this was likely a fluke, but I'm still unsure what the delay was with our simple orders.
Food was excellent, once it arrived. Staff was very nice and professional. Atmosphere is great. I still would recommend, but I'll no longer make plans after my dinner.
I feel like everything was pre-cooked. We sit down on the table at 5:05 and at 5:40 they already bring us a bill. We order appetisers and entries if they cooked to order how can you cook it that fast?
Service and view were exceptional, but the food was just OK.. especially for the price. We probably won’t be back.
I’ve been here multiple times and never had a bad experience. The food is great and the staff is always accommodating
First time in Louisville and so happy we stopped here! A great place for food with a great view of the river. Excellent service as well. Get the fried green tomato salad!
