Wedding rehearsal dinner

My niece held her wedding rehearsal dinner here. There were 38 of us and it was a nice cosy atmosphere. The food was very good and the children loved it all as well. It's BYOB and soft drinks.. However like several other reviews the service and attitude needs improvement especially as we were... read more

I have been there twice now and each time it has been a wonderful experience. The food was excellent, not too expensive. We went with another couple and were seated immediately. Loved the home made rolls. The chocolate cake was to die for. Really it was an excellent Italian restaurant.

Food was great. Table service was very good. Management needs to consider a new line of work that doesn't include customer contact. Dined at River Street last Saturday evening. Party of 6, including guests from Europe that we see 1-2 times per year. After dinner, and settling the check with a 20+% tip, we were finishing up the wine in... More

Public Service Announcement - Do not go to this restaurant, unless you want to be home by 6pm on a Saturday night. Six of us went there on the recommendation of friends who had been there before. The food was fine, The waitress was OK. Our reservation was for 7pm, but it was more like 7:15 when we all got... More

My whole extended family loves coming to visir and always wants to make at least one stop at River Street! Not a huge or complex menu but everything is really yummy!

Arrived on time and waited about 5 minutes before anyone appeared, even though the place was already half full. We were a group of 6 and the table was all laid, but our greeter was a glum fellow wearing a cap pulled well down. After a couple of grunts in response to being told the booking name, he pointed at... More

Go here if you are looking for a nice date night or a cute place to meet up with your girlfriends. And it's BYOB so bring a bottle or two of your favorite wine. Being byob the bill is so much more reasonable. The food is pretty darn good. I recommend just about everything there including the seafood fradiavlo, chicken... More

Breakfast is tough to make unique, but River Street does it effortlessly. This is easily our favorite breakfast joint in the Milford area. Don't miss the French toast trio or the pulled duck wrap...YUM. Only downside: decor is a little dated and there is no real waiting area, but definitely go visit!

When my family wants the taste of homemade Italian food and I don't want the mess in the kitchen, River Street is the perfect place to come. The food is consistently great and the prices are reasonable. The service is attentive and friendly. Reservations are almost always a must and only cash or checks are accepted. River Street is Bring... More

This is one of my favorite local spots here in Milford. Unfortunately, out of the countless times I have gone, I have never been able to order something besides the eggplant/chicken parm combo (it is that good!). However, I do end frequently end up finishing my wife's meals who does tend to sample other items on the menu. I must... More
