I was celebrating my 44th birthday and he never been to the riverfront steakhouse. I had heard great reviews of how good for food was. The food was good however the atmosphere was not great. I felt like I was walking into a 1970’s old hotel. There was dust on all the ceiling vents in the bathroom and the restaurant was dated and dark.

Steakhouse is located inside the Wyndham Hotel on the Arkansas River, Waiters were very pleasant and very accomodating - food was prepared very nicely - great salad , Filet, and sides. My wife commented that this was one of the best steaks she had ever eaten.

My wife and I ate there before a concert. The location was very convenient. She had a sirloin steak, and I had a pork chop. Both were very good, well seasoned.

We had reservations at 7:00pm, we did not receive our salads until 8:30pm and we did not receive our entrees until we went and asked for a manager and finally received it at 9:15. Those of in our party that requested our steaks to be medium to medium well and they all came well done. We were so hungry at that point we just ate it. One in our party ordered salmon and the entire meal was not even prepared. My husband ordered fried rice with no chicken and it was full of chicken so after sitting there for almost 3 hours he left with only having a salad and mash potatoes for dinner which meant he left still not full. Our party of 8 were just highly unsatisfied. We even had a manager walk by and ask how we were and we stated we have had better service than we were getting tonight and they just walked off. Our waitress Renee was excellent. Our issues were definitely not with her it was with the kitchen. We know she has no control over how fast the food is prepared. We had a couple seated after us that had their entire meal and were gone before we even got our salads and appetizers. This level of service was just so overwhelming. We definitely will not be going there again.

We made a 6:45PM reservation 10-22-2021. When we arrived there was an intense conversation among staff behind the counter. We weren’t immediately acknowledged, definitely felt we might be keeping them from something, definitely without a smile. We were told, with no eye contact, we are “playing catch-up and it would be a few minutes before our table would be ready.” We met friends from out of town and were embarrassed that we were treated so poorly. I looked around and saw a table with 10 people, but possibly 2-4 other people in the entire restaurant. Service was distracted, kept disappearing for long periods of time. Orders we’re filled and finished for those who arrived after us and by the time we finished our meal.
Bathrooms were atrocious, smelly, the faucet I tried to use was lose, unattached from the counter.

We read reviews about the restaurant being the rated highly. We were greeted with enthusiasm by the host but once we sat it was like someone dropped anchor. There were only 21 people in the restaurant and it took longer than expected to get ordered and food on the table, then our waiter let is sit till everyone in the restaurant was gone to bring our check, then he was gone over 15 minutes before delivering our credit cards and receipts. The food was OK. Certainly not the best steak I have had. Not for $70 a seat.

I’ve had better steaks at home. Everything and I do mean everything tasted the same and not a good same. It was like all the food had the same seasoning and the seasoning was a fish. I’m actually embarrassed because I had heard on a radio ad that this was a great steakhouse and took my wife to eat here. We drove 2 1/2 hours to this place. She looked at me after her first bite and said “ That radio guy lied to you!” My bill was $147 and I’ve had a lot better food from McDonald’s

As always, the service was impeccable. Our waiter, Skip, is our favorite. Ricky, the "one man band" is a mainstay in the restaurant. We could go and just listen and be happy.
Sadly, Covid has temporarily caused a halt to the open salad bar for safeties sake, and we appreciate that management is making our health and safety their top priority. All the staff are wearing masks and that shows us they are sincere.
Our only minor complaint was the amount of seasoning on the steak... it was a bit on the heavy side and because we are limiting our salt intake had to be scraped off. We didn't share that when we placed our order, so our bad.
On a scale of 1 to 10 this restaurant earns an 11. If you are looking for the perfect romantic evening you owe it to yourself to wine and dine here.

Arrived on time-seated at a decent time. Sat for an hour or longer and no waiter/waitress came to take our order we decided to leave. I took my husband there for his birthday & this was our first time dining there. I was embarrassed and very disappointed.

The service was very slow. We sat there 15 minutes and then tracked a server down at that point. Still the service did not improve although we had a wonderful evening and the food was very good. We had to flag down the waitstaff constantly end it was not even crowded at all actually it was very sparse. A very nice gentleman showed us the blue dog room and take us around the restaurant telling us about the paintings which was very nice and he just did that being sweet and a good employee (because we never complained). As a matter of fact he just saw us looking at a blue dog print came over and just took over giving us a tour. I wish I would’ve gotten his name but I did not.

We went early so it wasn’t crowded at all. That was our goal. The food and the service were superb. Our server, Jasmine is outstanding!!!!!! Not only did she remember us from a year and a half ago!! she felt just like family waiting on us. We love Riverfront Steakhouse and will return as soon as we can. The best fillet mignon of anywhere I’ve ever been. Thank you for everything.
