“Fabulous for business dinner party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Excellent food and service! Our group had choices for salad, entree and dessert, and almost everyone had the NY strip steak which was excellent. The servers were all attentive with drinks and handling orders very professionally without interfering in conversations. Everyone had enjoyed their dinner and the atmosphere was terrific as well. Beautiful restaurant, both in the main dining are as well as the private room where our group was seated. We could still see the other areas of the restaurant, so you don't feel isolated, but with the doors closed, the noise does not bother your group. We went midweek and there were a lot of people, so it must be a very popular location. It was my first time there, and I thought everything was wonderful.

“Still a little full”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Not sure how my company knew to find the Cool River Cafe, but let's just say I'm really, really glad that they did. No, really. You know what the mark of a good restaurant is? When you order your steak, and you specify your cooking temperature, and it comes out... PRECISELY that perfect temperature. Attention to detail is key; they hit it. Not sure my water glass ever got to empty, despite my tendency to drink a lot of water. They were able to help select the perfect wine to my tastes. And dessert. Again, they could just tell you what the right dessert was. Attention to detail, all over again. Constructing a perfect meal for your taste buds. They ask questions and make sure you'll like it before it hits the table. Fantastic job folks!

Very nice atmosphere,location and great menu. Kind of loosing out to other restaurants in the area, very trendy and good service ,parking can be a problem at times. The food lacks excitement.Very good service!

“Cool atmosphere, superb fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Nearby hotel concierge recommended - and I agree. The architecture and atmosphere are mesmerizing.

Dined on a Tuesday night and crowd was light. Started with Ahi Tuna, splinded! Entree was 7oz Filet, also splinded! Interesting that the petite filet was served by itself on a ~12inch plate - it looked lonely. Side item of Mac & cheese was awesome. Finished off with Chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream, & coffee.

Server was at attendance at all the right times.

Wow, it was all great! Bill (for 1) was about $75 w/ couple of beers, before tip.

Bottom line I'll be back when in town again.
