First dining experience in the new Covid world. Felt comfortable and spacing and cleanliness were spot on. Went on a Tuesday for their rib promotion and food was good. Server Joseph was attentive and did a good job. Can definitely recommend.

Prime rib was very good. It is served at your table and not buffet style. Very generous portions.

Liked that it was not crowded. Seated right away but server could have acknowledged us sooner..just 'I'll be there soon' would adequate. Been here a few times and quite the experiences. Will be back.

This is the first time in 38 years that My husband and I have gone out on Feb 14 Valentines Day we have always felt that dinner and stuff is more expensive on this day just so that some can make a buck or for some it’s the only time of year they feel they have to do something for there special one. This is why we have never celebrated it. But we got tagged in the Kitchen Buffet posting and the price is every reasonable and it was super easy to make a reservation on open table and voila booked and had a great time great meal and will definitely book again. Thanks

Staff were wonderful. We had the loveliest server, she was attentive and friendly. The food provided was excellent quality and tasted good. However, if we did not have a coupon we would have been highly disappointed and probably would have walked out, The selection of food has greatly decreased over the years and is no longer worth the high price of over $30 a person! There were five salads offered Caesar, fresh greens, pasta, beet, couscous. Nothing else. No fruit or veggie platters. No variety of pickles. The cheese tray had four cheeses only with two cheap cheddars, marble, and Monterey Jack. There was an entire section to make nachos and French fries which is fantastic for children but when paying over $30, I expect something more than cheap fries and nachos. Not even tacos were provided. Not worth the price at all!!! We will not be back unless we receive another 2 for 1 coupon because it is only worth around $16 per person. There are much better buffets in Edmonton for the price.

Majority of the food was very good, but we found the prime rib was quite dry and chewy, not juicy nor melt in your mouth.

We should have checked what was on the menu for that day when booking- we were there once before but on a Saturday and assumed the menu would be very similar but On a Sunday, it has switched up with items such as lamb which we do not like . Pricy but there’s 30% off if you sign up for the Casio club thing so it’s worth it with the discount. The only thing was we had reservations for 8 but one person did not make it. At the front desk thee was a sign saying an automatic service fee of 15% would be applied to a party of 8 or more.
We needed 4 bills and they did not count properly - we were only 7 not 8 and billing us for 8 and applying the service fee to everyone. We spoke up and they fixed it without any issues however.

My review may seem harsh, but I want to start off by saying that our server was amazing but the selection and quality of the food were less than good.
According to frequent diners of this buffet, the selection at this buffet has significantly diminished since a couple of months ago. I was a bit disappointed by the choices especially considering the price.

The soft serve ice cream was a win though. Although, only vanilla worked and the machine is supposed to offer multiple flavors.

I likely won't return to this restaurant.

We were very disappointed. For the price there was hardly anything to choose from. 3 croissants left, only toast. Almost no sweets or desserts. Stale marshmallows at chocolate fountain. Very greasy tater tots. Nothing extraordinary like for example eggs benedict, avocados etc. Didn't expect such low quality for River Cree. We won't come back.

Came here after a day of swimming. Made reservations and was seated promptly in a cozy booth. Came at 5 which is a good time as at 6 it started to get busy. Specials today was leg of lamb and ribs.

Leg of lamb was excellent. Buffet was small but good selection of cold and hot foods. The vegetarian lasanga was great. Leg of lamb was great. They had a nacho and poutine bar which was also good. Chili was good. You can build your own burger. They had a dessert table and ice cream dispenser.

Service was average. Had to call on the waitress a few times. Food selection was good. Lines to the buffet was a bit tight and unclear on buffet etiquette if you could start in the middle to get something or had to start at the beginning. A bit pricey in my opinion. But overall it was ok.

Casual buffet. The hostess was very accommodating and found us a quiet booth close to the buffet. Our waitress was efficient and pleasant. The food selection was a little less extensive than I would have liked, but overall, no complaints.

Way too crowded. Stood in line for half an hour to get to the buffet. The restaurant should restructure their buffet layout. Price too high considering there was no way you could return for seconds.

Food was okay. Only very rare prime rib was available.
The make your own pasta was a nice offering.

A variety of desserts were available.

Our server was very pleasant and attentive.

It was the Christmas Day serving so it was very busy. The line ups were long to get your food. Also it was a bit confusing where to line up. I had never been to the buffet before so when I looked at the serving line there were plates at both ends. I assumed that there was the same food at both ends and met in the middle where the carving station was. I was wrong. Even though I was one of the first people to go up, by the time I got to the middle there was quite a line up. I looked like I was budding into line and got a few nasty looks. The food and service was excellent.
