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

Well fate must have been in our lucky stars as we traveled home from our vacation. Had no idea this little town of Conway had such a gem of a restaurant. The ambiance and the food were astounding. Just an amazing experience. The banana split was just awesome. Had to be one of the best eating experiences ever.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and both times have been amazing. We started with a porkbelly appetizer. For the meal I had grilled scallops and other seafood. I have a salad and the dressing was amazing. For dessert we shared a homemade strawberry shortcake with homemade ice cream. It was out of this world!
