The waitress was outstanding and attentive to our needs. The food is over priced for the amount given. My husband had the chicken and scollops that was cooked to his liking. I had the salmon dinner which was cooked as order, but the vegetables were over cooked (unable to eat). The atmosphere however was wonderful (candle light and appropriate dinner music).

The service was great hands down! The only down side I had was my steak was a bit over cooked which I didn’t send it back I was starving and it wasn’t flavorful like I thought it would be.

We live in Williamsburg and wanted to head out for an early dinner to celebrate both my wife’s birthday and Valentine’s Day and chose a in between date. Anyways it was a nice evening particularly my wife enjoyed the table by the fire place. It was a 4pm early dinner which was perfect due to weather and our commute. Service was very good. Our entrees were very good but the food was somewhat luke warm. The flavor on my porterhouse was delicious though! All in all a nice place for date night and a great place to satisfy the carnivore in me.

Our waiter Taylor was excellent. However, our last few visits the food quality has left a lot to be desired. We lives close by and plan to come more frequently but you guys have got to improve your food quality. We also Have had a couple of recent experiences where the service has been poor but Taylor was excellent.

Our experience at River Stone Chop House was very pleasant. Our server was very courteous and helpful and the food was delicious. Everything was wonderful until I checked my checking account the next day. There were four separate charges on my account from the Chop House not including a $50 gift card they told me wouldn't go through but actually did. So for a $115 dinner the Chop House charged my account and gift card over $300. Not very happy about that. Hoping to get it resolved.

Came for son's 18th birthday. Made reservations via OpenTable with no issue. Ambiance was fantastic. Service was excellent. Our drinks were good and waters kept topped off. Food was great. Chef had a single wagyu tomahawk ribeye available from a special order for another party and the celebrant jumped on it. I had the signature dry aged ribeye which was cooked mid rare perfectly. Wife and other son enjoyed their piccata and lamp chops, respectively. The sides are shareable so keep that in mind. They even brought us some salmon bites and had a nice dessert surprise for the kid. All in all a great experience that we will definitely do again.

We ordered two steaks, both to be cooked at Medium Well. Upon arrival, we discovered that one steak was cooked at medium and the other was cooked at well.

Something obviously got lost in the translation.

This was a double birthday dinner. Our server, Kennedy, was assisted by a senior server. They both were well versed in the menu and specials.
The two birthday boys had the Baseball Sirloin, which was very tasty. It was a tad dry, but the mushroom risotto and peppercorn sauce more than made up for that small insufficiency. The plating and presentation was appealing.
The other diners had a chicken piccata and a seafood medley dish. Both were well plated and perfectly cooked. The whole evening was enjoyable. It made for two memorable 70th birthdays.
I highly recommend this restaurant for special dinners and fine dining.

We have gone every January to celebrate my husband's birthday for over 6 years. This year i was beyond unimpressed. When i requested the reservation, it clearly asked were we celebrating an event and i marked birthday. The waitress was beyond confused when i mentioned said birthday, but i just blew it off as she was busy. She forgot my salad until i asked for it..it came out with my meal. She forgot we were supposed to have bread at our table, it came out beyond burnt and super toasty from being on the grill way too long. My scallops were indeed very large, but overfried with way too much batter. My husband's surf and turf came with 2 small steaks, a smear of crab and overcooked vegetables. When we ordered dessert, the waitress gave my husband a small cup of ice cream for his birthday which was very kind, but a bit too late to salvage my impression of the night. I do not know if management has changed or the kitchen staff, something is off and we will not be returning. The meal was very expensive and i feel i just didn't get my money's worth.

Overall we were disappointed in the experience and food. The staff was incredibly nice and knowledgeable but the food was not worth the price. We waited around for the check far too long. The drinks were great but for a $250 meal for 2, we were expecting much, much more.

The place is expensive. The food was pretty good, but not the best or even top 5, at that price level, or any price level for that matter. The service was great. Mixology was outstanding as well. Low key ambience, creating a romantic atmosphere. I would recommend it for at least trying one meal, but I don't know if I would eat here again.

Average culinary experience for a chop house that claims excellence. A one pound lobster at 39.00 served at room temperature. Steaks were cooked properly but the glaze/reduction took away from the beef flavor. Calamari below average with several coating bits in the bowl. Raw oysters excellent. Oyster Rockefeller did not impress. All sides very good, brussel sprouts were awesome, fries and asparagus were verh good. Creme brulee, bread pudding, and hazelnut sorbet all very good. Three stars based on entree preparation and service.

Our evening at Riverstone was wonderful. We were dining with friends, and a couple who had not been to this restaurant previously. They were very impressed with the amazing service we received from Sarah, and the terrific food - he said his perfectly medium rare NY strip was the best steak he had ever had. On our arrival we found that one of our guests was having a birthday the following day- and her meal was completed with a beautifully garnished slice of cake presented with a candle, courtesy of the management. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal, and the attention paid to our enjoyment of the evening. Everyone who tended to us truly went above and beyond in making our visit special.

We had reservations were seated on time, staff at hostess stand was friendly. Had gotten drinks at bar, bar staff was very helpful and friendly. Waitress was very knowledgeable, but we did get green beans delivered instead of collard greens. It was corrected fairly quickly. They kept trying to deliver wine to us that we didn't order at the table, not sure whose fault that was. 4 ppl, tab with tip was about $325. Nice place but may consider another place next year.
