Description: The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge's premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.

This whole experience was surprisingly disappointing. We had a table for four which was too small and the whole dining room is cramped.The bread was not very fresh. The salmon main course was overcooked and tough. The salad was unimaginative and also arrived with dressing even though we had requested it without. The waitress then denied there was any on... More

We managed to get a table mid week without booking and didn't have to wait too long. We were shown to a small table for two, which was a bit small and we had to sit opposite each other. We like to sit together!! Asked if we could move to a large table as we wanted to sit side by... More

if you are a meat lover you will like this place.We shared the Camembert and ordered a sirloin and ribeye for mains with chips and spinach.The steaks were both requested medium and both came perfectly cooked.Nice to see the chef wandering around.Perhaps one of the best steaks I have had for a long time.

I was so excited when my boyfriend surprised me by taking me here for dinner but I left rather disappointed. I was expecting so much more after reading stellar reviews. Although the food wasn't terrible, it wasn't exceptional either. I've had better steak for the price we paid. The service was good. Our server was pleasant and attentive but the... More

My wife and I are very lucky to eat at great restaurants more often than we should. I have never posted a good nor bad review despite some bad experiences. I've spent time in the USA and having worked as a waiter at uni so am very sympathetic to those on the job. However tonight I left no tip as... More

We went to the River Bar after reading many good reviews and were not disappointed. The staff fit us in on a Friday night even though we had not booked a table. We had just been to the Varsity roof terrace for a drink which is well worth a visit too! We both ordered the ribs which were delicious and... More
