We found the weekend brunch portions were huge and wonderfully paired with prosecco and cranberry juice. Staff are super friendly and try their best to create the best possible experience. The River Cafe is our go-to place for a memorable family dining experience.

I took my girlfriend out for a dinner date for our fifth anniversary and we had an absolute blast! The cocktails were well balanced and came quickly, the calamari was unique and unlike anything I had ever tried before. My partner loved her entree and the gnocchi I had was modern without being too over the top. The best part of the evening by far was the tiramisu. If you come here for anything at all, come for the tiramisu. I’m probably gonna be dreaming about that dessert for the rest of time. Thank you for the lovely date night, and we hope to come back again soon!

Beautiful experience. Katia was an extraordinary server: knowledgeable and professional. Bryant played and sang, taking us back to a time when people dined, not just ate. The French 75 were exquisite—very hard to craft correctly & they were flawless. The staff were all discreet and attentive. Wine list is amusingly overpriced but you can find a few interesting varietals. Originally sat in the dining room but it has a very corporate feel and windows that look onto a busy street. Moved the lunge which has more ambiance, albeit TVS. It’s almost the perfect classic NYC steakhouse; just needs a bit more ambiance. Still my favourite place to dine in yyc.

We had such an awesome time in the lounge. We went earlier before a show at Vertigo Theatre. Had great service from Rebecca while sitting at the bar. Went to our show, and then came back. There was an awesome singer performing, so we stayed and enjoyed the rest of our evening. Thanks folks - it made our day!

I went for my birthday and was very warmly welcomed! I ordered the prime rib and it was FANTASTIC! My girlfriend ordered steak and it was good, but a bit bland. The service was amazing! There was only one washroom working which was a bit inconvenient but overall I would say 4.5/5. I love how many gluten free options there were. I’d have liked to see a bit more dairy free options but that’s a me problem haha. It was really good. We will definitely be going back!!

The promo for the sapporo pitcher was misleading. It says the food that they were giving on the side is “unlimited” but it really wasn’t. And our server was sarcastic when we tried to asked her again for this promo. She made us look like we don’t understand the promo at all. Next time DO NOT put the “unlimited” sign if you won’t do it at all!!!

Great food and drinks. Everything that hit the table tasted great, a bit disappointed in the prices however. A pint of bud light for $11 is… rough. Also the chicken tacos were great, but not worth 15.50 for two tacos. For fish maybe, but chicken? Overall a great experience, but probably won’t be back unless happy hour is on.
