We had bison carpaccio, cauliflower, chicken supreme, veggie Wellington, and crumble for dessert. All terrific. But vegetable Wellington was a must have - unique dish and delicious. Service attentive but not in your face. Really nice atmosphere in there. Overall a great experience and will for sure be back.

The most exquisite place to dine in St Albert. From the building, to the service, and the food...everything is outstanding. We look forward to coming to Riverbank Bistro for any special occasion. We even had our Christmas party here in December. Dan and his fantastic team put out 35 incredible meals. Love it every time!

Loved the decor. The food was very good. I found the vegetables a little bland. Also, it took quite a while for your water glass in getting a refill.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at the Riverbank Bistro! He ordered the char, which just melts in your mouth. I ordered the chardonnay pasta, which was delicious! The creme bruise dessert is a must as well.

I only took a mark off for service as we had a reservation but they tried to seat us in the lounge across the hall. However, after asking, we were moved to the restaurant.

Our party ordered 2 Prime Ribs & 2 Short Ribs, along with Roasted Cauliflower on Sunday night. Prime Ribs were overdone... we specifically ordered them medium rare, which came out well done. When 1 guest a requested for extra au jus, we were informed that there would be extra charge. At a fine dining restaurant,it would have been a nice touch if there was no extra charge... nickel & dime left us with a negative taste. We were also Disappointed that the prime Ribs came out in thin slices.

The short ribs were excellent, but portions was not generous.

The cauliflower was excellent, portion size fair. The waitress failed to provide us side plates when she served the cauliflower until we were almost finish. Incompetence is not acceptable when tips are expected at a fine dining especially when the restaurant was not busy on a Sunday evening.

Hard to make a recommendation when out of town guest was disappointed with the food & service.

We had a great dinner. Nice atmosphere with attentive service. Great place for conversations. Food was amazing and hard to decide on. The Avocado Bruschetta anf the Bison Carpaccio were mouth watering. The mushroom soup was a bit heavy for my taste but good. The Shrimp salad was tasty as well. Definitely would recommend and will be back.

It was my husband’s birthday...
Next time it would be nice to know if the restaurant is
going to go the extra mile & serve the birthday person a free piece of cake or not.... it was very awkward & disappointing......

It started as a wonderful dinner...was having a wonderful conversation with my husband, enjoying great food.....then people started arriving and noise level was so loud that we couldn’t even talk anymore. We were out for a special dinner which they knew and they sat a party of 4 right beside us. The restaurant is very small so I understand there wasn’t a lot of places to sit but it put a damper on what started out to be a great night.

RBB was an amazing food experience. Our server was great, always around when we needed her but not hovering. Made good wine recommendation and extra friendly. The food was fabulous, had the lamb shank and it was perfection. Definitely will recommend to friends and family! Great for those special occasions.

This place is fantastic! Such a gem in the heart of St.Albert. We celebrated our anniversary there and it was a very romantic and intimate setting, with delicious and original dishes, well priced items, great drinks and an overall lovely experience. I have already recommended this place to multiple people and plan to return again soon!
