Great brunch food

Really enjoyed our brunch. The Riverhouse bennies were wonderful and we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day! Generous portions. Service was excellent.

We pretty well only come here for Sunday brunch and never have eaten dinners here. Their menu items on the Sunday brunch has a lot of healthy options and we have eaten the Spa Bennys a few times. Even though they changed it slightly recently, it's still good.

This is one of the nicest restaurants in St Albert. It has charm and sophistication. Today we had a light Broccoli Soup with the Spring Salad. The soup was a creamy and flavorful soup. The spring salad was elegantly presented. It has the right amount of dressing as to not overpower the salad. For a nice lunch it is work... More

Our experience was very similar to the previous reviewer. We had also made a reservation but they had no record of it. Fortunately someone had cancelled so we were seated. It was right near the server prep area and kitchen, so we also heard the banter from the kitchen and the tables are so close together that our "neighbours" commented... More

We were really looking forward to dinner at The Riverhouse. The experience had always been good in the past and the food was good. This visit began with a mixup in our reservation. The hostess did find us a table but it felt very much like we had made the mistake not them. Our waitress was lovely, unfortunately, the dinner... More

We went to this restaurant when we first moved to St Albert over 15 years ago. Found it overpriced, tired, musty...never returned. Until this past weekend. We'd heard it was under new ownership ...waitress said it's already been 3 years, who knew? Redecorated..warm, inviting, classic, ..fantastic. Yes, it's pricey, but the food was great! I have to agree with a... More

We went as a family group over the holidays. The cost interior is pleasant, but gets noisy as more patrons arrive. The menu is quite limited so we were disappointed to find one of the signature dishes had only two platings left, at 5:30pm this is not good as the evening rush arrived after we sat down. The cheapest menu... More

We usually like the River House - rated it before as top notch. Made reservations for New Years Eve - were not told it was a set menu. That should have been our first clue. Waited one hour before we even got our drinks. And 1.5 hour before we got first course of a set menu. The food was not... More
