A group of 7 of us went for our Christmas dinner on Dec 4th. There were only 5 other people in the entire restaurant at 6:15 so not very busy. The waiter was very nice. He did mix up 2 of our orders (which were fixed). Two other dinners which were the new York steak were both cooked incorrectly. Both were over done. New steaks were ordered, but it took a while to get them. One came out first and it was fine, but the other took a lot longer and we were told the chef overcooked it again so by the time the 3rd steak came to the plate the rest of our part had pretty much finished eating. No new potatoes or veggies were provided for these two meals so they were eaten separately from the meat so they would get cold. The restaurant only comped us one free dessert on a $300.00 meal that was less than satisfactory. The meals themselves that did not have issues were very tasty. Usually this is a very good restaurant to go to, but we will not be back in the forseeable future. Maybe that's why there weren't many folks eating there.
Had excellent chicken pot pie and the new sticky toffee cake with ice cream......brilliant!!
Lovely place for lunch. Food and service were both excellent. The new manager was very attentive and helpful.
It’s my birthday next week so my parents decided to take me out for dinner. This place was one of a few on my list that I wanted to try out. As you walk in you are welcomed in by this warm home like feeling. We were seated by the window overlooking the marina. We caught a slight glimpse of the sunset but it quickly dipped below the horizon. I ordered the 8oz prime rib done medium- rare. When we got the food the presentation was very well thought out and looked very delicious. It came with steamed veggies, mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. The prime rib was very tender and full of flavour. The vegetables and mashed potatoes were very tasty. Overall I was very pleased by the service and food here. I will definitely come back again!
Great restaurant. Friendly service. Mussels are highly recommended. Prime Rib is a must have. Not many places make Yorkshire pudding so that was great treat.
No changing table on premise so be prepared when bringing your little one.
We come here often. Good food and atmosphere. Great for special occasions.
We celebrated Thanksgiving on Sunday with my family, having recently moved back to Ladner ,I am fortunate to have The River House as my neighbour .
We all enjoyed our dinner and the cosy ambience of the dining room , the waiter was friendly and attentive and we will keep coming back .
Waited at table for 75 minutes with no food
our server Michael was friendly and so very helpful. He was also very funny and entertaining!
We went to celebrate a friends birthday and had an excellent time. The food was outstanding and our waiter was the hit of the night. Very good service and great teller of jokes. We got a table by the window overlooking the marina. Great time out for the ladies.
Gorgeous view of the River. A really nice quiet spot to enjoy the sunset with a great menue.
We always have great service very friendly servers and hostess
Good selection of food and surprise us with cake to celebrate our birthdays
Central meeting place for all of us travelling from White Rock and the North Shore
Well worth the drive
Food was very good with great options for gluten free etc. Only complaint was my daughter asked for no cheese and it arrived with cheese. So while I ate the kitchen had to make hers over again. Server was very friendly and attentive. Wine selection is good as well.
I had the prime rib which was great but I am not particularly a meat person so I am not a good test of how great it was. The horse radish was nice! The salad and veggies where nice. The desert was OK but not wonderful. Wine was good. Service was good.
This was our first time at the Riverhouse. Celebrating our anniversary. The service was
Very warm and friendly. Nice patio but weren’t interested in sharing with the bees. Would recommend
and plan on returning
Friendly staff and delicious food. Ambience was wonderful too.
A perfect evening with friends - good food, friendly service and an outstanding view of the water! We sat out on the patio over looking the river and were served promptly and not rushed when we sat to talk over our tea and coffee. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try them☹️
Hidden gem, large portion kid meals
What a gem of a location. Beautiful summer night and patio dining is a winner
The location right on the river, the good food and the friendly, efficient service make this a favourite for me. I have never been disappointed.
We were visiting the area to bird watch at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuart. I had the peach lemonade mocktail with seafood Club sandwich. My husband had the house white and pan fried oysters. We shared the cheesecake with strawberries. Everything was excellently prepared. Beautiful view of the water.
Silly, but I made a reservation for 6:00 and had that confirmed. However, when we arrived at 6, the waitress said she had us down for 5:30 and she had just called our home to see if we were coming. Well, I assured her we are here. So some sort of glitch with the computer program.
A NICE SPACE AND THE SERVICE WAS GREAT. THE SPECIAL WAS A GOOD VALUE AND I LOVED THE YORKIES. THOUGHT THE ENTRES WERE PRICED A TAD ON THE HIGH SIDE. THE FOOD QUALITY WAS VERY GOOD. WE WERE IN THE DINING ROOM, NOT THE PUB. WOULD GO AGAIN.
The service is just perfect. Very helpful without being cloying. And being on the waterfront makes for great views.
Beautiful setting. Ok food. Service could be better.
Food was excellent, nice evening beautiful sunset. The pub has been nicely renovated but we ate in the wine room I was a little chilly in that room but they had heaters placed around the room. They were a little understaffed, but we were looked after nicely and had a wonderful evening
We had to wait 2 hours for our meals. My husband had to go and find the server to bring us a
second cup of coffee and all the servers were all in the River House Pub as there were more
customers in there. No we were all very annoyed. A couple came in 45 min. after we did and
they got their meals right away.
While the pub is under renovation the restaurant has the bar moved in which changes it a bit. Looking forward to trying this restaurant again after the pub is back Feb 2018 and they’ve moved out of the restaurant.
Was totally disappointed it was a New Years date, first date and it was like eating in a cafeteria setting. I think I would have preferred to eat at White spot. Their Kale salad had greens a couple of small scoops of garbonzo beans, no comparison to anywhere else. My dates portion was child size and he is a big man. Totally disappointed!
Visited for New Year's Dinner and as usual with our visits to RiverHouse we enjoyed the service and the food - never a disappointment.
Took a colleague here for a Christmas lunch. We were seated next to a very large noisy group so it was difficult to have a conversation. It took nearly an hour for our food to arrive but when we finally got it, it was delicious. Our server was very friendly and we understood how very busy she was. I would definitely come back again, but will choose a quieter time of year
The food was awesome. It was better than what I expected
I made a reservation for my four year Anniversary and it was a magical night. The food was wonderful. Ambiance was romantic, even watched the sunset gleaming off the water. Service was superb as well. Made for a perfect night. I would definitely recommend it to all my friends :)
Great place for seafood on the river.
Service was slow to start, after that acceptable. Servers are friendly which adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Food was average, and for that a touch too expensive. The good thing is that it is not noisy, so one can have a conversation while eating or afterwards. The setting is good, parking plentiful and so you get away from the huzzle and buzzle of downtown or more centrally located restaurants.
Perfect for birthdays!
Did the Tuesday dinner date and enjoyed every bite .
Food great as always. Great service and friendly atmosphere
Our service was excellent, we did have an early dinner though. Our waitress was extremely pleasant. I enjoyed the online reservation, nice and easy.
Food was awesome and staff is friendly on the restraunt side(had not tried the pub). Had to ask for silverware as it was used for our appies. Quality food for a reasonable price. Will go back to see if it is the same.
