                                                        It was all really nice. Those waffles that I ordered were way too sweet though.

                                                        Food and environment were excellent. Server could have been more attentive. Particularly with water service

                                                        Riverbank Bistro has earned its reputation. We've been here many times and each time it has been a delightful experience. The food is excellent from the delicious Forest Mushroom Soup to the Tenderloin cooked perfectly as ordered. The service is always courteous and attentive. Pleased to see the BC choices on the Wine Menu and we both particularly enjoyed the Nichol Syrah. Great for couples, friends or a nice business dinner. We are happy to be regulars!

                                                        Bistro has excellent food every time. They are consistent with the quality of your meal and the high level of service. It is a good place to dine for any occasion and has good ambiance. When warm the deck is nice close to the river even with a little road noise it is still pleasant. The wine list is fine - you can find something in a variety of price ranges if wine is your fancy. All in all a nice place to dine.

                                                        Outstanding overall! It’s just that my wife doesn’t eat 48$ worth of food and my kids (4 and 8) don’t eat 25$ worth of food. I know it’s Mother’s Day and it’s once a year, but this is to be mentioned.

                                                        If you haven’t been to Riverbank Bistro you are really missing out. Once again the food, service, and ambiance waa superb.

                                                        Had no problem making a reservation for the next day Was greeted at door with a smile and asked which table we would like. Menu could have had a few more selections but the food was very good and spaced out between courses. Service was friendly and professional. Would recommend this location to my family and friends

                                                        Yesterday was our first time dining at Riverbank and it won't be our last. My husband had the tenderloin and it was done to perfection. I had the schnitzel and ...oh yum! There were quite a few things on the menu for us to try and we want to come back and try them all. Highly recommend!

                                                        The atmosphere is perfect. It was our anniversary and wanted something that would be very special for our 36 years being together. The service is top notch, food outstanding with a great selection to choose from. Would highly recommend.
