I had high hopes for this restaurant but it didn't take long for them to be dashed. First, the seating area inside is extremely crowed...so much so that we practically ate dinner at the same table with complete strangers. A tad uncomfortable to be sure. Next was my entree which was supposed to be scallops and prawns on a bed... More

Service was great, entree selection was very interesting and atmosphere beyond what I was expecting in the older part of Yuma. Don't let the street and area throw you off. It's in a older funky neighborhood but just a block away from the old 8 so easy to get to. Loved it. White table cloths, great wine selections, had the... More

When you're in Yuma in April, it's all about the outdoor dining! And River City Grill, recommended by our waitress at breakfast, was lovely in the evening. The crowd favorite this time was the mustard crusted halibut, but all meals were well prepared and the service was very good.

I do not know Yuma at all. Found the restaurant by doing a quick search. I really enjoyed this restaurant, even dining solo at lunchtime. As I was so hungry, really appreciated the fresh bread and olive oil. I ordered a chicken curry and it was delicious. All the ingredients were fresh, colorful and properly cooked. The was a nice...

Large al fresco dining area blessed with attentive, efficient and knowledgeable wait staff. The food was incredibly good. The four of us had a varied selection of menu items and were very satisfied. Nice wine list. A distinct "cut above" in the Yuma dining experience.

Although we were initially excited about the menu, the charming and spacious outdoor patio, and the attentive service we received from friendly waitstaff - our overall experience at River City Grill was not a positive one. None of the things we ordered were as good as they should have been (combo bruschetta appetizer, spinach salad with seared ahi, a medium... More

Stopped here for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. Surprising menu! We had a delicious bouillabaisse, just $13, and the best chicken wrap ever, both bursting with flavor. Friendly service. The waitress said more travelers know the place than locals. Yuma folks, we wish we could move this gem to Tucson.

From the street level you would never know the quality of service and food in this place, We sat on the patio because it was so nice outside. It was busy but Michelle was right there to greet us.
