Our server was extremely attentive, and as we were seated on the patio he recommended a table that was private and covered in the event of a storm. We experienced an incredible thunderstorm but were able to remain outside and enjoy our meals. We were not rushed, all meals were served to our expectations and our service was excellent. We will highly recommend this restaurant to our friends and families.
Nice view, food is whatever. Too expensive for what you get. Change the whole menu.
Received very polite respectful conscientious service.
Definitely THE Edmonton patio! Watching over the greenery of the river valley and the mighty Saskatchewan River. Stunning. Couple that with great service and delicious food - it's a winner!
The food was okay but view is outstanding. I like the restaurant.
We had great yam fries and edamame beans to start. The drinks were fine as well.
The steak sandwich was sent back for overcooking. The second one was great though.
We weren't overly impressed with the wait service. It was average.
The patio is very nice with a full view of the river.
From the moment we stepped out onto the patio we were very pleased by the amazing view of the Valley and River below. The food was was fantastic, flavorful and very yummy 😋
Really nice view of the river valley lots of seating. Steak was tough but beer and Sangria we're good.
Menu was a little restricted due to COVID. Service was awesome and the view is perfect.
It was mine & my husbands first time here, the view was great and the waiters were super friendly and kind. The food was good the only thing is it wasn’t totally filling the portions aren’t the best size.
Thanks you. Service was great as were the views. I’ll be back.
We went for Edmonton downtown dining week and we both had a great meals.
We had a table for 2 overlooking the river valley and it made the evening more enjoyable.
The service was exceptional and all the staff were great to deal with.
We booked one of the igloos on the patio, and it was a wonderful outside winter dining experience! Our server was exceptional, and the food was fantastic, but the view is unbeatable!!
I would have preferred a privacy barrier between the hotel lobby and the main dining area. The view is nice, and the servers were nice, but things seemed scattered and service was slow. The menu offered to us was about half of what was shown online (kind of like a bar menu, even though it was early Saturday evening) and I didn't like any of the options available. I wanted a hot meal, something hot like a pasta dish or a steak/chicken with potatoes & veggies, but had to settle for a Caesar salad with chicken. The chicken was really good though. We only went because it was in the hotel we were staying at, but I probably won't go back.
Excellent food and service. Beautiful view of the river valley!
Service was quite slow and underwhelming. For what my friends and I paid for lunch, it was not good value. I don’t mind paying for something that’s worthwhile, rather than something easily forgettable.
Chef Singh put together possibly the largest, and tastiest Lamb dish I've ever had. The best patio in the city and this years' addition of heated igloos was also a great treat. The service is very good and the ambience appears at first glance to be fairly formal, however it is a bit more casual than I was expecting. Staff were/are excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Another lovely time at the Riverside Bistro! Thank you very much!
For dinner only. Lunch menu is horrible. That is all
Wonderful view of river valley. Food better than average and service was good.
Come for the view and the service - not the food. Food is good, overpriced, but expected for the location. I really like that they choose local ingredients, and have a list of the local companies they work with on the menu. Come for the view at sunset - have a pint and relax with the excellent attentive service.
Would not recommend at this point. We arrive early for our reservation from a Dental Conference next door at Shaw Conference Center and seated at the table. Our orders for lunch were placed at 12:30pm There was a large table of a dozen or so people who received all the attention and service. I think one of the hotel managers was at this table. As we sat there other people had been seated and started receiving their food before us. Even after the large table had been served and had left., we were still waiting. Our food was served at 1:30 over an hour wait and one of the orders was wrong beef burger instead of salmon, so we had to wait again for this to be remedied. We were barely back in time for the afternoon session for 2:00 pm
The food was very good . View of the river valley is amazing.
You cannot beat the view at this outdoor restaurant. The food was somewhat better than average but the portions were very small for prices in the mid twenties range. Wine prices range from $18 to $25 for a 9 ounce glass seems excessive ...
Great view, food wasn’t anything special and a bit pricey
Leon was excellent. The food, the service & the view was amazing. We will be back soon
Great view, great service, decent food and value! My girlfriend and I had a great time and will definitely be coming back in the future. Great date night spot.
Was a very strange experience. The lights were very bright. The “bistro” is just an extension (afterthought?) of the main lobby, which was noisy and distracting. To be fair we could not sit out on the patio because it was raining. The food was good, but the house wine was simply awful. Had to pay a lot for a decent bottle of white. To top everything off, they had the temerity to serve us INSTANT COFFEE (decaf) and still charge $3.50 a cup!! Absolutely disgusting. Will definitively not be back.
Loved our food - probably the best burger I have ever eaten and was the consensus at the table with my three friends. Chef came over and asked how things were going as well as the manager. Now that is a posh and personal touch and very much appreciated. Would dine here again.
Really enjoyed the ambiance of looking over the river valley. The service was very good and the food was quite delicious. I enjoyed my time there.
We enjoyed our lunch and especially the incredible view of our beautiful river valley. This was our first time at the Riverside Bistro and the ambiance was lovely. I am planning on coming back to have a nice lunch and view the fall colors! Staff was friendly, courteous and attentive. Thank you!
Had a great evening, weather cooperated for us and ambiance is amazing. Food was good, service was good. Really appreciate the parking service you provide. Takes a lot of stress of people . Good job
We were impressed by the excellent service by the staff in this beautiful restaurant . The view is marvelous. The restaurant is newly renovated. The food came very fast. We came to this restaurant to celebrate our 38 anniversary and enjoy the 3 hours we spend . The Honey garlic chicken wing was very good. Will come back in the future.
Went for an evening of dinner and drinks. The service was good and the ambiance is wonderful. I loved the music that played on the patio. I ordered the Thai Rice Bowl and my gf ordered the short rib. The Thai Bowl was pretty good but more spicy than anticipated. The short rib meal was atrocious. The meat wasnt tender and it tasted awful. The server was lovely though. I would recommend this place for the view and ambiance alone but the lovely people at this establishment need to bring up their food game I would say. Overall a good experience.
We went there for dinner on 3 Aug. The food was very good (specially quesadilla with sweet potato fries) and so was the ambiance. The service was also very good. Victoria and a gentleman (i don't know his name) were very nice and welcoming. Overall it was a good experience for us.
Great food with one of the best patios in Edmonton. We will certainly return.
The OpenTable reservation did not pass through our special requirements which caused a problem with seating
I made a reservation for 10:00 on the patio, only to arrive and find out the patio doesn’t open until 11:00. This was not indicated on the website. Our whole reason for choosing this restaurant was the beautiful patio.
We decided to stay and asked for a window table , the waitress was very annoyed with us for requesting a table she would have to clean.
We decided to have the buffet, the food was room temperature and the potatoes were awful, cold and dry.
We have eaten here before and generally have had good experiences, this was so bad I doubt we will be back.
