Went with my small family and a friend for dinner. Amongst us, we ordered a California turkey wrap, a chicken tagine or somesuch, and grilled turkey sandwich. Food took about 40 minutes to arrive. The wrap was as good as anything from the grocery store, the tagine with no noticeable spices, and the turkey sandwich was good. The cheerless waitress... More

When we walked in we were greeted and seated by a friendly hostess. Unfortunately our waitress was a big disappointment. At times she seemed rushed and manic, although the restaurant was not that busy. At other times she was spacey and forgetful, and not particularly friendly. Our food was pretty good, but nothing special. Our favorite dish was probably the... More

My husband and I went to dinner here for the first time after examining their menu online. We predetermined that we wanted the shrimp and crab dip for an appetizer and ordered it shortly after being seated. I also ordered an iced tea, but was told they were "out of iced tea"; however, the waitress offered to make some for... More

I have been to this restaurant three times, and I will most likely go back, as it is close to the ACME Theatre, which I frequent; the food is delicious and the prices are competitive, The service the first couple of times was non-remarkable. But the last time I went, in a group of about 8-10 people, the server was... More

One waitress tried to seat us at a booth next to the kitchen doors. At this early dinner hour the place was nearly empty so we asked to have another booth near the windows. She objected by telling us how quiet it was and argued with us but finally pointed to a booth in another corner. We should have walked... More

We had been to the river rock before and hadn't had great experiences but nothing could have ever compared to what I experienced with my two children today. I walked in the front door to a hostess/bar/waitstaff person not happy to see us - as she came to see us she said to a patron at the bar "God help... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for dinner not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The menu features an interesting grouping of various foods from Steaks to Bouillabaisse. Our waitress was delightful and started us of with a ramekin of their hummus paired with pita triangles. I chose the Lemon Chicken Tangine served with couscous and vegetables... More

People, are saying this place has gotten better. I gave it another try and it proved to be the same old, same old. Fancy names for 'maybe" 7 entrees. the rest of the menu is comprised of salads, sandwiches, and drinks. Boring, drab decor, slow service.

Great atmosphere and bar, but the food could have been better. I had the buffalo chicken wrap with sweet potato fries...the wrap itself was very messy to a point where my friend had to use his fork and knife to finish eating it. Sweet potato fries were good, but skimpy especially when you're paying more for them. Would consider going... More
