Great Father's Day dinner with the family, prime rib was devine!
Our 11 th time to the Riverbank!
Variety on menu
Use of local vegetables
Always a great experience at this place, food is fantastic too
I expected something special and different from the usual restaurant
but the food was not worth the money
The service was amazing but not pressured. Waitress had good understanding of menu and the food was spot on. Shrimp salad had an amazing flavourful dressing, would highly recommend this appetizer.
Best meal / place to enjoy a 5 star evening, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere top notch, great staff go the extra mile. Recommend this establishment highly.
Fabulous dinner! Have the butter basted chicken with the artichoke bread pudding! Outstanding!
Yes, very good food at prices you would expect, when going out for a special occasion dinner. 5 people went, and between us we had the salmon special, roast chicken with caramelized onion pudding, beef short ribs and beef tenderloin dinners. All were excellent and enjoyed by all. The mushroom soup and avocado toast appetizers were really good, as was the raspberry creme brûlée for dessert. We’ll be coming back! Thx.
I have not had a bad meal or experience yet at Riverbank Bistro. If I want to go out for really good food and dining experience, there is only one place in my mind in St. Albert. That is Riverbank Bistro.
My favourite place to go and eat! The food is incredible
Service was ok, I found that for a higher priced “fancy” restaurant the severs attire was extremely casual. The food was good but maybe over the top. ie peppercorn steak sauce heavily poured over the steak is a little much.
We had a wonderful dinner. Even though we entered through the wrong door, the team was more than gracious and showed us to our seats. They were very accommodating for our senior who uses a walker. The food was exceptional with large portions. Exceptional value! The service was outstanding we never felt rushed or ignored. I will recommend the restaurant to all my friends.
Amazing food and service! Wish the seating was set up a bit different for couples.
The food is absolutely to die for. The chef is amazing there! I’ve been a few times now and never been disappointed. However I’ve never sat on the lounge side and this time they seated us over there. I was a little disappointed as the river bank side is much nicer and the view is beautiful. Ambiance overall is just better. Would for sure go back but request the restaurant side over the lounge for sure. :)
A PERFECT PLACE TO CELEBRATE AN ANNIVERSARY SUPPER. LOCATION GREAT IF THE WEATHER WAS WARMER 7 THE RIVER LOWER! SPRING! CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE DECK IS OPEN FOR DINING.
Great atmosphere, good service and the food was outstanding. It was the second time we have been there in the last two months and both times the experience has been exceptional.
The food was amazing! Staff was very friendly. A little loud overall, but was manageable.
My daughter and I loved the Mother’s Day Brunch. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding!
My daughter and teenaged granddaughters were celebrating Mothers Day and everything was perfect!
Food presentation & taste was excellent. Mushroom soup was to die for! Wine prices were high, would appreciate half price wine night or perhaps bring your own wine even if there was a corkage fee. Service was good & server was very friendly but not as polished & professional as seen in other high end restaurants. Would definitely recommend & return again to try something different off the menu.
The food and service was excellent! The braised beef short rib was particularly outstanding and we were well looked after by our server as the appetizer and entre arrived in a timely manner. The only slight criticism would be that it was rather warm in the restaurant and as a result the bottle of red wine we ordered was warmer than the ideal serving temperature. We will definitely return as, overall, it was an enjoyable dining experience.
We love this restaurant. Great staff, great food. Give it a try. Mmmmm.... short ribs.
Food was very tasty, service was great and the surroundings were pleasant. Good place for a special occasion.
Enjoyed our brunch at the Riverbank Bistro - I had the veggie eggs benedict - delicious !!! My partner had sausage and 2 poached eggs with a side of Hollandaise sauce. We enjoyed our meal and look forward to coming back soon. Not bad prices either.
I hadn't been to this restaurant in over 3 years and was very concerned about returning but given the restaurant has changed hands several times I was hopeful things had got better. Negatives, no salt or pepper on table, had to ask. Coffee no spoon. Breakfast only lukewarm had to ask for ketchup not offered. Restaurant was not busy so can't use that as an excuse. Will not return no more chances.
Exceptional! From the open table availability, the parking, the ambiance, the greeting, the service, the choices, the amazing food and outstanding service. Everything about our experience was exceptional. I would highly recommend Riverbank bistro whether you are on a date night or having a family gathering. St. Albert has a gem! The dishes were prepared from scratch and the TLC was noted. Thank you Daniel Ducharme (Exec chef & Owner) and to Danielle, our excellent server. We will be back!
Second time at Riverbank Bistro, sat in the lounge this time. Loved it!! Quiet, beautifully decorated, cozy and food was absolutely delicious! A wonderful date night location, and if you’re wanting a quieter dinner, the lounge is the side to be on!
Really expert service and fine fine food in every dish as we have had almost everything on the menu by now. U will not be disappointed!
Good food, good service and nice decor! Location is handy but sometimes the parking lot is full, however lots of on street parking.
The caesar salad was excellent and the beef short rib was delicious.
We had a beautiful girlfriend get-together at the Riverbank Bistro. One of us has a severe food allergy and the Chef, Daniel Ducharme, was terrific. He came out to talk to us to make sure that we would be well taken care of. Daniel and his staff were very attentive and gave us an excellent meal and service. We will definitely be back and be sure to let our friends know of this little gem overlooking on the Sturgeon River.
Food is exceptional
Sauces are correct and amazing
Great again! Always our go to restaurant.
Great atmosphere, terrific food, very relaxing evening.
One of our servers, Danielle was very friendly, knowledgable and attentive. We shared a breaded shrimp salad, the shrimp was well done, but OK. We both had the beef short rib, it was tasty and tender, the Brussels sprouts were delicious , though there weren't many. I think it lacked presentation. It was in a bowl, kind of crowded in, I think it may have looked better on a plate. Dessert was creme brûlée which was delicious and lime meringue pie which was also very good. It was initially very noisy, but calmed down by the time we had dessert.
I gave this a three for the food as I would have liked to have more vegetables and a smaller portion of meat served on a plate. Although the entree was good it wasn't outstanding.
What a wonderful night out! Service was fantastic and food was absolutely amazing!!
Amazing food. Fresh, creative, delicious. Great wine list and incredible service.
I had been so impressed when I took friends there the previous Sunday that I brought friends there again on Saturday! The food was amazing and like nowhere else. Both times the service was great! I was so pleased that I posted on Facebook.
The only unfortunate thing was that it was extremely hot in the restaurant. Both times we were sitting on the north side.
The food was amazing, the service was excellent, but I was quite put off being seated in the lounge with a view of the coat rack. I will specifically request seating in the restaurant by a window next time. My wife and I do not eat out often, so when we do, ambiance is important.
