    The domes were cool but seating wasn’t all that comfortable. Food was ok - for what I was paying I expected much better quality of food. My duck was not crispy / the side potato tasted boiled. Service was very good and attentive.

    Our server, Rhona-Lynn took our already fantastic dining experience in the dome to the next level. She was fantastic and the food was amazing (best tar tar in the city!). The ambience of overlooking the frozen river valley from inside the warm and cozy dome is unmatched in the city!

    Lovely restaurant and great views inside, but the outdoor patio area can't be beat to soak in the fall river valley scenery and general ambiance. For that reason it's in high demand and can't be reserved specifically. The friendly and attentive service and excellent food make this a must do again.

    You go here for the view. Period. The service is great. Limited bar service. They did not know how to make a margarita on the rocks (without a slurpee machine!) Food was average at best and over-priced. Parking out front for more than 1.5 hours is $30! One of the best patio views of the river valley in Edmonton.

    Absolutely a great view. We took my father here for his 75th birthday lunch. Terrific value for the view. The service was very attentive. I have no complaints and highly recommend. There was something for everyone (burger for my dad and more unique dishes for my siblings and me). I didn’t look at the receipt very well, and later discovered that there was auto-gratuity, so my server did get about 40% tip from me, which wasn’t my intention. But the receipt did have a circle around the auto-grat, so I’ll be sure to be more attentive in the future. I know sometimes these things happen; the server probably didn’t notice it in the moment either, because the lunch rush was over and everyone was paying at the same time.

    The steak was not the best. It was not the heat we'd have liked and the cut was somewhat grizzly. The broccoli was really tough and that and the quinoa were actually too cold on the plate. The red snapper was the best I've ever had though. The chef made up a new plate and it was excellent then. I'm neutral on the fish starter dish. It felt like the staff was still in training. We had to ask for steak knife and a few things that were missed on the table and settings. They were good to us though. The venue is so nice overlooking the river valley, even though it was a rainy night and we had to be inside...but the parking is really a gouge ($15 for the few hours we were there).

    I was disappointed that the patio was closed due to construction and was one of the reasons that we wanted to have lunch there on a sunny day. We ended up at a table that felt like we were on the middle of the lobby. However the food was delicious! Highly recommend the carpaccio!

    Perfect place for a celebratory dinner with a few close friends or family. It may be a bit pricey to take lots of smaller children with you but for a small group of adults it's perfect. The view is spectacular and I can't wait to go back when it's greener in summer or when the fall leaves come. I guess that's 2 more occasions at minimum that I will have to plan. The food was delicious and prepared perfectly and the service was top notch. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.

    Food was overpriced and not that great (actually, the steak frites was terrible). The igloo experience was cute (great views, unique experience) but the $50 sitting fee on top of a food/drink bill that was well over $250 on its own seems excessive.

    You need to be more transparent when making reservations. No where does it state to eat in the igloo is an extra 50$ a person......we made the best of it but not the point.

    Riverside Bistro - Courtyard by Marriott EdmontonResponded on January 28, 2022Hi Dana, I am sorry that we did not provide a more positive experience. We appreciate the feedback and hope to have the opportunity to leave you with a more favorable impression on a return visit. Please note on open table, it is well stipulated in regards of the $50 charge per dome booking and not per person. However, we had changed the location of the message and it shows before you valid your booking, and it will also show on your confirmation email. We hope there will be no confusion.

    Me and my partner went for the New Years dinner experience. We had a great 4 course meal with wine pairing. The servers were great in making us feel comfortable and accommodating to our needs. They made the experience wonderful. Only gave 4 stars because we didn’t like the dessert! Was a massive orange zesty pie. We would have liked something small and chocolatey. But that’s just preference. It was very pricey and would only do once a year. Wine pairings were really great. Also had a man playing slow romantic music on a guitar.
