Wonderful views of the river. Food was delicious, service was great!
Couldn’t have asked for a better meal for Father’s Day.
Food and Service with a very large crowd ( expected for Fathers Day ) was excellent.
Food was fine but was not remotely worthy of the price. This felt like Applebee’s quality food at Jeff Ruby’s prices. Service was good.
It was an awesome Father’s Day! The waiter was amazing, he made sure our kids and everyone was happy and satisfied!
Food and service was great...
The food was wonderful and the view is spectacular. I am celiac and have no problem eating here. Everything is cooked to perfection. Wait staff is superb.
Delicious food. Definitely a "win". Hope to return some evening and sit outside.
We had a party of 8, which they managed well. Great food, service & atmosphere.
Very great evening with my wife for Father’s Day. Service was excellent and the restaurant was beautiful.
Good food, nice view of River, great service.
Really disappointed with River House. We had a bad experience a few months ago but decided to give it another try. Well ... disappointed again
The service was horrible. They seem to have plenty of staff snd at least four managers that we could see but none checked in on us. The waitress we had didn’t even attempt service for this price restaurant. She would have been a solid Waffle House waitress but here I’d expect more.
The drinks were extremely slow , the food was served in the wrong time. Salads got there before apps. They were out of the 12oz steak special and also the 10oz (this was early on a Saturday night )but of course no one told us until we had looked at the menus and decided we wanted that.
The food was OK. The tuna was over cooked and ordered rare. My filet was WAY over cooked but at this point I knew sending it back would take an hour. Lobster tail was tough. Two of the sides we ordered didn’t show up at the table but one did show up on the bill.
The raw bar made ice all nice so you couldn’t even talk over the machine. We asked a bus boy to ask them to close the door. They never did. The parking attendant was also rude. All the managers “looked” busy and I guess to busy to check in. A pretty expensive dinner that left us all feeling taken advantage of.
I like his other restaurant and maybe it’s a sign of the times but the wait staff all seemed unhappy and the managers on duty were more concerned with hanging out than taking care of customers. Sorry but our family’s and friends won’t be back.
Louisville has many great restaurants for you to spend your money at .........unfortunately this won’t be one for us.
We had a fantastic dinner! The food, service and view were amazing, we will definitely be back the next time we are in Louisville.
The service from Andrew was phenomenal! He is so customer friendly, accommodating and overall very service focused. It was extremely hot outside and he brought us a hand fan that was a nice touch and suggested foods to eat that would make it more pleasant such as they V Seafood Tower. He constantly checked on us and made sure we we having a great dining experience. He even took a picture of us to help remember our evening there.
All the food was really good and tasty from appetizers, grilled romaine salad to the fresh tuna ceviche.
The only drawback was there was a smoky ribeye special that we really wanted but it could not be sold to us until the regular ribeyes were all sold. I believe if I am there and ordering a specific food it is a sure sell instead of waiting to see if something else may sell first. I believe if you have customers you should make sure they are accommodated to make sure they return.
All in all my party had a great dining experience thanks to Andrew!
Brought my elderly parents there for an early Father’s Day celebration. Great seafood selection.
We ate outdoors and the staff accommodated us with a shady spot when requested. It's good to be dining out again and River House has something for everyone. We took a dessert home, fully satisfied.
We enjoyed our experience at River House. The waiter was very attentive and the food and drinks were really good. We were celebrating our anniversary and the hostess and our server made it feel like a very special occasion. We will dine there again.
Restaurant was pretty busy but service was still very good. We did have to send the steak back for being undercooked but that was the only issue we had.
Our server, Anthony, was great! We really enjoyed it!
We were so disappointed by the quality of the meal and the poor service. We’ve had a great dining experience in the past, but what should have been a wonderful experience for our 42nd wedding Anniversary, turned into a major let down. Slow service, an appetizer that never arrived, had to request silverware, a tough steak and rock hard dessert. So disappointing!
Great service and a great view while dining on the outside patio.
Great experience for my wife’s birthday
Beautiful setting and atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed food and the variety of food choices. Servers were very enthusiastic and informative. Great experience every time we come!
The food was inventive and very tasty! Patrick our server was outstanding and went the extra mile!!
I had not been to River House before and found the food, service and ambience just great. I enjoyed a fish sandwich that was perfectly cooked.
Overall it was a superb evening—very good food and great service—Carson, our server, was excellent and entertaining—will return—
Our salmon was over cooked, but other than that everything was okay. We sat outside which was a bit noisy, but it beat being inside. Our server was shockingly good.
The outside seating had a great view, a little breeze, and plenty of room between tables for comfortable table conversation. The server and other table staff were pleasant and right on time, every time. The food was perfect temperature and amount.
Brought some out of town friends there for dinner with good food, good bourbon list and a view of the river.
Came back on Friday before Father's Day with my elderly parents to celebrate Father's Day early and they were impressed as well.
Diego did an excellent job and was very patient with my elderly parents.
Our server was excellent and the food was superb! Drinks were delicious and original. Everyone at our table loved their meal
Cocktails were great. Food (salad and entree) was excellent. The dessert - tres leches was dry. Took one star off ambiance because two flies kept landing on our table.
First time visit for a special occasion, we will be back. Good and service was some of the best we have had in awhile. Dessert was a bit of a let down, Key lime pie was overcooked, but tasted good.
Enjoyed dining on the patio. Food was overall good. Attentive service.
The menu is fabulous so it is best to sneak a peak before you arrive but then the specials will tempt. We had appetizers, salads and entrees because we couldn’t overlook any course. The grilled oysters and squash blossoms were favorites. Would like to have seen a wider choice of medium priced wines.
Great food, great service and excellent drinks
Terrific fried avocado salad with crab & shrimp! The River Tower was delish. It’s not far from downtown Lou… do it!
Food, Service and the ambience were all excellent.
Everything was great until server failed to follow through. Never brought lemon for water, nor did he bring cornbread he kept promising. I asked about desert to go you could tell he wasn't interested saying icecream melts, I'm an adult I no icecream melts. Seemed he was more concerned about turning table for next guest.
Food was amazing. Only downside was that it was quite noisy.
