Sophisticated and scrumptious food, reasonable price!

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... read more

This was our first visit to River Side Grill, our friends had been there before a recommended that we go. 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. They... More

Best kept secret in Yuma. Monday evening for dinner, the place is packed. Nobody inside for dinner, everyone is outside on the patio enjoying the beautiful evening. The service both at the bar and outside for dinner is top-notch and personable. Michelle made us feel that we were the only couple there. The menu is world-wide. In addition to local... More

We decided to splurge and have a nice lunch at the River City Grill. It was a disappointment. We arrived 45 minuted after they had opened at 11 AM. Wait personnel were friendly, but didn't come around much. They have inside and outside serving, and we stayed inside because of the A/C. Seemed like outside may have been better served.... More

Good choices, well prepared and presented. The outdoor dining is nice and not as crowded as the interior dining area.

Group of 7 friends for dinner, special was Oso Buco - the flavor was there but very dry. Would not order again. The halibut was delicious. Mediterranean salad very ordinary, just wild greens with tomatoes, Caesar salad was delicious. Service good, but bill not added correctly, and the 20% tip was automatically added to the bill. Maybe because there were... More

I truly enjoyed my evening at this locally run restaurant. We were greeted by the owner and seated in a very pretty courtyard. Good service ave well prepared food made it a very nice night. Great wine list. This has to be the best in Yuma.

Our first time in Yuma. We chose this restaurant based on high star ranking & positive reviews. We were disappointed because in a good restaurant the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. But here, the whole was less than the sum of its parts. That is, the individual components of the dining experience did not come together... More

The food here is pretty good. They have a great selection of seafood dishes. It's a pretty small place so you may want to get a reservation. The staff is very friendly and the service was great. I would recommend this place to all of my friends.
