Good but very loud

Food here is very good. Try the fish specials, because they are usually excellent. Pasta dishes very good as well. Reservations a must! BYOW.Service is good. Very loud in restaurant.

I love this restaurant you always have a great meal. The service is very good and the place is always clean. The only things to keep in mind when coming here is they only take cash and the acoustics are not great so when there are a lot of people it is loud.

I've seen this restaurant for years, but never seemed to get there. A friend and I went for dinner and now I'll definitely add this to my list of places to recommend. They don't have a liquor license, so bring your own wine. The corkage fee is not bad - $3. The choices were excellent and overall, we enjoyed the... More

Brutal, Cruel, Disrespectful ! Not typical words to describe a greeting you receive upon entering a restaurant. Well those are kind words to describe how we were greeted by Kim at River Street Restaurant. And then only to have the added pleasure of her as our server. (oh what a night) Although they have been in business for many years... More

Stopped in as party of 6. Everything was great. The dinner rolls were hot and crunchy. The balsamic dressing salad was very tasty. I had the eggplant and chicken parmesan combo. Great flavor.

This restaurant is a byob which is one thing I love. I have never had a bad meal. The food delicious. One thing I don't like is that it is very cramped. If you are looking for a romantic or quiet dinner out, this would not be the place for you. They accept cash only but they do take reservations.... More

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 such a large group. The appetisers were... 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
