Food was expensive and not notable in taste or presentation.

Expensive for sub average meal

Everything was perfect for the wife’s birthday dinner with one exception. There was a table of men sitting on the other side of our dining area and one of the men was talking so loud we could hardly hear each other. Thankfully once his dinner arrived he concentrated on eating rather than talking.

Food was good, service was excellent, but for the cost, I just think there was more expected.

I’ve been coming to Riverstone for about 10 years. I’m amazed at how they have kept their competence and reputation over that time. I’ve never had a bad experience or a bad tasting meal. I highly recommend this restuarant

We have been going every year for our anniversary, and have always been WOW’ed, last night the food was good and the server was kind, but we had to wait a bit. Also this is first year we did not get bread or a small anniversary gift. I understand that was a nice gesture and not required, but it was one of the things that made them stand out to my wife and I. Still good food.

Food was very good, but service is lacking. Reservation note said birthday guest would like a gluten-free dessert, but they only had sorbet to offer. I made the reservation weeks in advance so they had plenty of time to prepare something. My guest was disappointed to say the least, especially since Richmond has so many excellent restaurants. "This would not have happened at home."

It was my wife’s birthday. I had asked via the reservation to have a small carrot cake. The waitress was not aware of my wife’s birthday nor did the carrot cake come.

River stone was very nice. They offered many options to dine. We were very pleased with the service and feel that the cost was worth the taste. It was a little loud in the dining area and we had the pleasure of listening to our neighbor discuss the removal of a cyst which might’ve hurt our appetites…but this was no fault of the restaurant. We would recommend.

Food was bare minimum to justify price. The place was over booked, and understaffed. Our waitress forgot our requests for salt a couple of times because of the volume of tables she was serving. The appetizers were good but over priced. The main course tasted just good enough to justify steep price.The desert was very underwhelming. Temperature, and sound were fine. The couple drinks we ordered were made well. Would recommend apple bees over this to be honest.

I booked for a birthday dinner and right when they opened so the place was completely empty but we were put in an awkward small table towards the back, would have much rather a romantic booth or something a little nicer for the occasion. Food was decent, service was good, drinks & dessert were on point. We traveled in for the birthday weekend and while it was a “good” experience I had hoped for better

We went outside our city to try something new and was impressed by the food but left disappointed by the service we received. Took about 15-20 minutes before our server even came by to ask us if we wanted water, some other type of beverage or if we had any questions about the menu. We watched our waitress tend to at least three other tables multiple times before she even got to us. We advised her it was our first time there and for any suggestions, no welcoming feel nor any real help with ordering etc., almost felt as if she rather not have to wait on us and wished we had been given to another staff member. We also watched the manager go to every surrounding table and ask how their meal was/service etc. but never to our table. It seemed to progress this way throughout the meal, having to flag down our waitress or someone else for the basic items that normally would be brought with meal and or drinks etc. (Utensils, Matching wine for the Tasting Menu to go with entrée etc.) Very disheartening and I truly hope the treatment wasn't due to our ethnic background. Although the food was good and the host and bartenders were very friendly, I don't think we will be back due to the other treatment mentioned above.

We went there for our 25th anniversary. It took 1.5 hours to get our food. Appetizers were cold. Sodas were flat. Got the aged ribeye. It was not bone in when they showed it to me but had the bone when I got it. Everything lacked flavor. Very pretentious place. They try to be a fancy restaurant but really miss the bar. The only thing that saved the night was our ability to laugh at the whole thing. We left $189 less in our account afterwards. Will not return even it it was free.

So many people have recommended it so we went for my birthday today. I will say the atmosphere is nice. Waitress Joanne was good. The food had no seasoning what so ever. This includes the appetizer and the meal. No salt, pepper, garlic, onion, old bay, lemon, rosemary absolutely NONE! The wine and tea was good as well.

The rockfish was a little chewy - of course what am I doing ordering fish at a steakhouse? Loved the lobster Mac, the hot crab dip, the filet, the veggies and the s’mores cake - I’ll be returning!

Everything from start to finish was EXCEPTIONAL!!! I absolutely love the location as it offers a more intimate atmosphere for special occasions. I had the pleasure of celebrating my 40TH Birthday here and I can honestly say, I’ll be back. Even if I wanted to complain, I can’t find anything to complain about because my experience was 5 Stars.

I took my father to ChopHouse for his birthday and he enjoyed every moment! From the young man who greeted and seated us, to our waitress (Joanne) who served us with knowledge and great energy and personality, to the chef who sent out a treat for us to try out, to the guest who joined in to sing happy birthday to my dad. Our meals were delicious. Conversation was good. Entertainment, our waitress, was awesome! Thank you for helping my dad have a “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”.
