Tonight I dined at Darien River House Restaurant. The food was very delicious, well prepared, fresh and service was great. My husband and another dined with us. We had a good selection of wine, reasonably priced and atmosphere conducive to a very relaxing evening. We were not rushed. We had fresh flowers on our table and white linen table cloths... More

Very disappointed. Service was not very good, waitress never really came, waited an hour for our food. We were ready to leave when it did show up. Food was very good, but after an hour of waiting you kind of loose your appetite and we were the only ones there. The chef offer a free desert but we are not... More

When it comes to evening meals, don't miss the wonderful Darien River House Restaurant, located at 306 Fort King George Drive, it is just around the corner from our Open Gates B&B on Vernon Square. It is an elegant white-tablecloth European-style restaurant run by chef Eric who came and spoke with us after our meal. He clearly enjoys creating the... More

September, 2013, we visited this restaurant only to find it closed. Chef Eric wrote a response to me which seemed very sincere, and asked that I write to him to make things right. I wrote to him and never received a response. I have since read the reviews and have decided to let this one go. I want everyone to... More

There are so many fantastic things about this restaurant and Eric is the C.I.A. trained chef is the reason why! So we were thinking of going to B&J's but we couldn't get our act together and got in after it was closed. So I used my handy dandy smart phone and found Darien River House. Uh oh I thought, I...

We were excited to try the Darien River House during our recent stay in Darien. Unfortunately we left disappointed. The girl who waited on us was very nice but we found the food to be very average, especially considering the prices. They serve the same sides with basically every entree. A "rice pilaf" which was really just generic yellow rice... More

We sat for one hour and twenty minutes before our food arrived, To make this short and sweet the steak was tough, no air conditioning for one reason or the other and dessert never arrived. This was one of the poorest dining experience's we have had in years.

Stopped in Darien on way from Fl to Myrtle Beach, then on to NW Pennsylvania. Wanted something of local flair. Read reviews on line, decided to try it out. Saturday night so we called for reservation. No problem, dress was casual although "the tables have tablecloths" said the person who answered the phone. Sum the evening up by saying great... More

We visited Darien River House in the fall of 2013 for our anniversary dinner. We found it to be delightful. The building itself is an old house and the downstairs rooms are the dining rooms. The chef, Eric, is very talented. The food was excellent as was the service. We decided to go back for Valentine's Day. We made a... More
