Was there on a very busy night. Friday as well as parents weekend for the local university. Other than waiting a bit past our reservation time for our table it was great. Bar was a little short handed, but will let that slide because of the busy night. Food and service in dining room was awesome. Don't miss this one... More

Went to dinner after attending theatre and had a wonderful meal in a warm and inviting "posh" restaurant. The service was fast and food excellent. I highly recommend this place. I little costly but worth it.

Nice portions, good service, a little loud. Meals to fit everyone's taste! It's a little drive to Conway and 501 traffic can be a nightmare. Not much else to do in Conway except the river walk!

Went for lunch. Food was out of this world. Appetizers was good and my meal was also. The only thing wish they had was better drink specials. My drink was great but was little on the high side for its size. Will go back SOON.

Went hoping to enjoy an evening out with my daughter. Have eaten there before and food was fabulous. Left my name for seating because there was a " ten minute" wait. After approximately 20 mins they seated a couple that arrived after us. When I confronted the hostess she told me straight up I was wrong and didn't act as... More

We are very sorry that you felt the hostess was indifferent. That of course, is not the type of customer service we promote nor what we are known for. The couple that arrived after you had a reservation, thus had priority seating and you were seated as soon as the next table for walk-ins was available. On very busy evenings... More

When you are the sister of a restaurant owner whom has appeared on food shows and been written up in well established newspapers and magazines, you have no choice but to be high maintenance when it comes to going out to eat, and this food snob LOVES the Bistro! After renovations due to a kitchen fire, The Rivertown Bistro feels... More

It's hard to know what to say--this is a gorgeous slick modern bistro with lovely attentive service and a menu of inventive dishes. Our starter of fried okra, thinly sliced fried squash, chopped banana peppers, Parmesan, and a peppercorn dip was pretty and delicious. My friend's fried oyster salad featured perfectly prepared oysters--lightly breaded and flash fried without being over... More
