Beautiful views! Had a brunch with a friend during fall leaves are in bloom and you can see most of the rivervally view. Food was good as well I had the taco salad with steak and I say decent prices for the quality. Will definitely come back!

We had a lovely evening on the patio with a stunning view. The food was very tasty and the presentation very attractive. What a wonderful experience bringing in October 1st overlooking the North Saskatchewan River. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your great food with a view that is breathtaking! Wendy

Beautiful location! Excellent service. The menu could have more selection but my tandoori chicken was very tasty. Also, a free anniversary dessert was served!

The sunny patio with river valley view are unbeatable, and we would come back just for that. Nicely spaced out tables with umbrellas and flowers made for a comfortable atmosphere. We ordered Margarita Flatbread, Fish & Chips, & Steak Sandwiches. The food was ok/good but a bit overpriced. Our Shrimp Gyoza appetizer came to the table last because our server forgot to put the order in. We had to ask if we could order our drinks first (beer & caesars). Our server disappeared and another server took our dessert order (ice cream & sorbets). Service seemed a bit abrupt at 1:30 in the afternoon. Be aware, parking is $7 per hour.

We’ve eaten here many times and would recommend if you want to treat guests to a nice view. Our lunch for 4 came to $180 before GST or tip.

These views of the Edmonton River Valley are unbelievable!

Patio dining was great.
Food was good - variety of the menu was limited.

Parkade is under construction and there are very few $5 valet spots available. You park in one of the 15 min valet spots and pay the hostess. Otherwise- very pricey.

The view of this restaurant is amazing, one of the best in the City of Edmonton. The services was excellent and we even went through a staff change and there was no disruption to our service. We had two appetizers, the shrimp gyoza and the margarita flat bread, both tasted very yummy but the portion size of the flat bread was quite small and each appetizer was close to $20.00. If you want to enjoy a beautiful view of the Edmonton river valley on a sunny afternoon I would highly recommend but your bill might be a little more than you expect.

Best view of the river valley on a patio in Edmonton! Can’t beat the atmosphere, beautiful patio and views. My only disappointment is brunch stops at 12 am on a Sunday. Really wish they would keep some breakfast items available till 2 at least as many people like to brunch at noon. Had the margarita flatbread, mimosa and mango semmifredo dessert, and it was delicious.

We ordered ceaser salad, chicken vindaloo, wings & margeritta flatbread. Out of those things, margeritta flatbread & wings were great but I’m actually concerned about how they made their ceaser salad (we got it to go so unfortunately I couldn’t tell them about my concern - pls see photo). View was great and it was nice quite environment. Most people seemed to be there for special occasions.

Beautiful river valley view! The menu choices are varied, delicious, and very good value. The atmosphere is classy, yet relaxed. Our server was pleasant and had the perfect balance between taking care of us, but not being intrusive in our dinner. A hidden gem of a place.

Such an amazing spot in the city! This was my second visit to Riverside Bistro and it was fantastic. The Mushroom Bruschetta is absolutely to die for, a must have. The patio is beautiful, even on a smokey, overcast day the view and ambiance are incredible. The cocktails are also excellent. Service is attentive and friendly. I’ll definitely be back and I highly recommend.

Overall it was a great place for lunch, the view is great. The food was good, although over priced, there was a lack of choices, we were expecting more of a brunch menu. The staff was disappointing, we say numerous errors of food being delivered to the wrong tables.
