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

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.

What a gem!! if you find yourself in the Edmonton area (NW of Edmonton) take the drive and discover St Albert. As a frequent dinner and traveller I didn't think one of the best meals I would have in 2014 would be in Northern AB but turns out it was. The soup we had was mind blowing, roasted root veg... More

My wife and I went for our anniversary. The setting was nice but could be better. The food was average and overpriced for what you get. It was also very loud.
