The food was good...the service was good, but the location and view was spectacular. Enjoyed walking around the grounds...very pretty and quiet.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We made a reservation for a view table for a special birthday lunch and after an hour's drive from our home we arrived to find the view tables all occupied. After a short wait we were seated at a table with a partial view. The servers appeared to be inexperienced summer help, eager to please but inept, dropping cutlery and even a bowl of dip in the lap of a diner at the next table. We had to ask for a wine list and when our food arrived we had to ask for utensils. The moules frites that we both ordered were a disappointment, overcooked mussels and cold fries. The overpriced salad was bland and the $6 chicken add on was dry and tough. The area was lovely and the drive scenic but we would not return to this restaurant and would not recommend it to others.

So sorry that was your experience. Can you please phone us directly at 604.796.1000 x3 ? Not sure what happened when you arrived, but that level of service and food quality is definitely unacceptable. Would love another chance. Please call so we can make arrangements.

“Stunningly Gorgeous Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We had lunch. I found the dish I ordered to be just average. I had the stuffed yorkshire pudding. Burgers looked really good. The setting is beautiful. I had heard this was fine dining but the lunch menu is definitely pub fare.

“Wonderful event space & dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Recently held a retirement party @ Rivers Edge restaurant, renting out the Lower Drawing Room for our guests and enjoyed a fabulous breakfast brunch buffet. The staff was kind, helpful and the food was very tasty. The room was a wonderful private space for us all to visit and the location cannot be expressed by words. Located right on the Harrison River- the scenery was amazing. You could literally sit outside/ or inside looking out, all day and just relax. No noise of the city and just fresh air.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for events :)

“Great Quality Friendly Relaxing Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We enjoyed 2 lunches and 2 dinners in this cosy restaurant next to Rowena's Inn on the River. It was exciting to see the 'eagle cam' capture the arrival of the eagles to their nest high in a tree on the property. The food was so plentiful we could have almost shared on plate but wanted to try different items. The ribs were great, full of the sweet barbecue flavour you look for. Burgers where super. What made this visit special were the kind attentive staff who surprised us with a birthday dessert. The owner and her husband spent time chatting with us about the area, the family history and the design and building of the cabins in 1995. Found it hard to leave but we will be back for our wedding anniversary in a few months.
