Do not be fooled by the outward appearance of this establishment. Although it is not overly large, it is huge with personality and atmosphere. This is a place I like to take out of town guest to show them that Yuma really does have fine dining options.

This restaurant is elegant, white tablecloths, great service and fantastic food. I had a wonderful steak and my wonderful husband had salmon. They also have an outside patio or you can feel comfortable and happy inside. Great for special occasions or just great people!

We travel to San Diego frequently and we time our lunch stop to conveniently be in Yuma. River City Grill is fantastic every time we have been here. All the food is prepared fresh and use the finest ingredients. Today the standout dish was the curried chicken and rice, numerous wonderful flavors. The tomato basil soup was a big hit... More

Since we were early for our 6:00 PM reservation, they were not that busy, we naturally got our choice of seating (inside or out on the patio). Nicely set table, cloth napkins, our server quickly brought bread and dipping oil. They served a generous amount of wine of our selection. The food was very appealing and of a generous amount...

We were overnighting in Yuma and decided to try the River Grill Café. Wow! From being greeted to saying goodby, the evening was terrific. The wait staff – especially Michelle – were ever-present and working hard. We arrived early without a reservation, and were promptly seated in a very good location. Water and wonderful bread and olive oil arrived promptly,... More

I come to Yuma about 4 to 4 times a year. Every time I come I have to come to this restaurant. The food is soooo good. The service is also great.

Excellent choice of vegetarian options, rare in this part of the USA. Visited on a Saturday night, walked in at 8pm without a reservation & got a table straight away. Buzzy atmosphere, ultra friendly staff & great food. My son had the steak and said it was excellent. Complimentary warm French bread with a balsamic & Olive oil dip is... More

Our waitress was wonderfully nice and the food was wonderfully good. I had the coconut vegetables with curry sauce and thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall it was a very nice meal.

I have never had a bad meal at River City Grill. Their mustard crusted salmon is heavenly. Service on the other hand is spotty. Sometimes it's good, other times.... If weather permits, sit outside, inside is small and the tables are very close together.

We read the reviews of this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to try it during our stay in Yuma. This Rather small and off the beaten path place provided one of the most delightful dining experiences that we have enjoyed anywhere. From the exceptional service (Katrina was our server) to the deliciously prepared food we loved the entire evening at... More
