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

We were a large party and were served quickly. Everyone really enjoyed their dinners, the decor was perfect, the restaurant was quiet enough for conversation, the service was quick and extremely attentive and accommodating, and we were all very happy with the suggestion of eating at the Bistro. The quality of everything was outstanding!

Always fresh, simple, innovative dishes. The service is very good with a very pleasant staff that is well informed and eager to please. The restaurant is a 45 min drive from my home and have no problem making the drive.

I found this restaurant only average, my steak was overcooked but I'm not that picky. The wait staff was not all that good. Like I said its average.

I was at the Rivertown Bistro today for lunch with a friend. I had the Watermelon with grilled shrimp salad. I would never have thought that the combination of watermelon, Shrimp, feta cheese, pickled onions would be good. I am happy to say "Man, was I wrong!" Also had the Black Cherry Mojito and it was very refreshing. My friend... More
