The Riverview Theater - kitty corner from the Wine Bar - is the best movie value in town! So having purchased $2 movie tickets we thought we could splurge on a glass of wine and a light dinner at the Riverview Wine Bar. It was a very cold (we're talking Minnesota cold) evening and after a brief wait we were... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times, the last time just last Friday. I had one of the specials, a burger with oven roasted potatoes and a wine flight from Spain. Both were good. I also tried the chocolate mousse and my friend had the apple crisp. My mousse was too sweet, but the apple crisp was still... More

We found this place while waiting to see a movie at the Riverview Theater across the street. Food was extremely good, and beer and wine selection were awesome. Even good options for kids. We'll definitely go back sometime.

I couldn't actually see the river from the restaurant, but that's ok because I was on a first date with a lovely person. The waitress walked us through our wine and cheese options and then took very good care of us as we enjoyed the evening. The Italian wine flight was lovely and if you can, get all three cheese...

If you like wine this is the place to go. They have a good selection and very knowledgable staff to help you pick the wine you'll enjoy. They have a small, but always good menu. I love the carrot curry soup!

We only recently patronized this small cozy business but were very pleased from our first visit. The wine flights were marvelous and the menu items we ordered were excellant. We enjoyed sitting near the fireplace and watching sidewalk traffic from the movie theatre on the opposite corner. We now make this location a dinner destination whenever we view a movie... More

Try five different Pinots in wine flight, or if you're so inclined, invite the bartender make the picks. What tasty, delightful fun! If like us, you'll love the food too. Their fall specials included a squash, pecan pizza. Wow. Who would guess such an invention would be so good? While salads and pizzas are their specialty, don't be surprised to... More

I stopped in at the Riverview Wine Bar only because it was right across the street from the Riverview movie theater, and I had plans there with a girlfriend. Am I glad for this happy accident! I greatly enjoyed the visit...there was no patio seating available when we got there but the hostess took our names and came and got... More

This place has always been a charming candle lit wine bar known for soup, salad, pizza, and small plates. They feature flights of 4 wines by variety, and a new beer list that includes some favorites that are impossible to find at liquor stores - like Magic Hat and Dark Horse. But they have just expanded the menu to include... More
