Great Valentine’s Day dinner! The setting is just gorgeous along the river and marina. Service was super friendly and accommodating. We live in the area and often forget about this gem. It’s a great place for a family dinner or just a nice drink out with friends. Highly recommend.

The Seafood Club was disappointing as I expected it to be made with a nice whole wheat or sour dough bread but instead was a small croissant filled with a small amount of different seafood much of which was very finely chopped. At $18.95 with fries I thought it was overpriced.
I have had a seafood sandwich at another restaurant where it is a large serving made with fresh bread and filled with a mix of different large pieces of seafood and unfortunately compared this one to it and it didn't even come close. I would NOT order this again or recommend it to anyone.

Great service. My duck breast was dry and my wife’s halibut was the same. The tuna poke needed a little more seasoning. However I didn’t complain as it wasn’t something that was worth letting the kitchen know. I don’t like to wast food unless it was something serious.

Went for dinner during Dine Out Vancouver with 3 other people.
All appetizers and deserts were good but the main courses for all parties were very disappointing.
The other 3 people in my party ordered from the $25 menu. There steaks were so thinly cut (1/4"), no more than a 4 ounce at best. I ordered from the Rack of Lamb from the $35 menu. When the food arrived, what was served to me were 4x Loonie sized piece of lamb, 3/4" thick. I questioned the server that the kitchen must have got my order wrong but she said that this is the way it came. She went back to the kitchen and came back saying that all that they can do is offer a soup or salad to cover their misrepresentation of the menu. Since we were there during Happy Hour, I said how about the chicken sliders. She said sure. The sliders were these tiny Oreo sided buns with chicken in between. Everyone at the table laughed. When I got the bill I see that I was charged for the sliders and also over charged on the draught beer as it was $2 less during Happy Hour. I decided, not to say anything and get the heck out of there. I now see that they have changed their menu on the $35 option to read Lamp Loin, rather than Rack of Lamp. Good to see they corrected it, but regardless, we will never be going there again and will share our experience with others.

We went for dine out vancouver. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere was good. The food took way to long to come out, and for our three course meal it took almost 2 hrs. The tuna poke appetizer and creme brûlée was great, however the entree (steak) was very small and mediocre.

The service was top notch and overall the food was good for our party of seven. A couple diners weren't overly impressed with their Seafood Quesadas. The guest of honor was surprised with a large slice of delicious cake courtesy of River House Restaurant, which was greatly appreciated.

Having been to the River House numerous times for lunch and dinner, I would definitely recommend it to a friend. I especially appreciate that I can sit with friends over a 2 hour lunch and visit without feeling that we should be leaving. The servers are always very pleasant.

Love the setting near the water, the service was excellent despite having one staff for the whole dining room. The warm seafood salad did not disappoint and earned rave reviews with my guest who was here the first time. A hidden gem in Delta.

Very busy upon arrival. Staff very accommodating when asked for an area that would be a little quieter as my guest is hard of hearing. Food and service was excellent. We stayed long after the rush was over and enjoyed catching up with each other and the staff encouraged us to relax and stay as long as we liked. Lovely luncheon for us both.

Overall great experience in a good location. We travelled with a disabled person in a wheelchair and it was challenging to get in and to the table, however staff worked to assist us with this. Food was to be expected at the price point and service was quite good.

Poor service ... we waited over 10mins to even get drinks
Patio was DIRTY with spiders and webs hanging off railings and tables and even the heaters
Overall a very unpleasant experience
We always enjoy the bar side of this establishment but clearly the restaurant isn’t the same quality

We had an early birthday dinner for my Mom here and it did not disappoint as always. All 3 of us had the prime rib dinner which is a tried and true favourite and always consistently delicious. Excellent portion sizes, great taste and authentic Yorkshire puddings - a true roast beef classic dinner like my Nana used to make and I have yet to find anywhere else that can serve one like the River House. They even included a free piece of cake for my Mom. Very thoughtful service. Thank you! Definitely will be back!!

We went and had the prime rib. Although we prefer rare the waitress advised us it was more medium. It was still very tender and tasty. The waitress was a sweetheart. Nice size portion. Desert was great.
