Great quality. Small and loud - make reservations. BYOB. A great "special occasion" place. Never had anything less than a terrific meal there.

When an employee picks parts of a table setting off the floor and puts them on a "fresh" table set, that's where I draw the line and never return.

Made a reservation for 5 at 7:30 pm. All went well when we walked in but from there it was downhill. They seated us at a table for 4 . A chair was placed at the end of the table to make it for 5. I sat in that chair which stuck out in the spot leading to the kitchen.... More

Food here is very good. Try the fish specials, because they are usually excellent. Pasta dishes very good as well. Reservations a must! BYOW.Service is good. Very loud in restaurant.

I love this restaurant you always have a great meal. The service is very good and the place is always clean. The only things to keep in mind when coming here is they only take cash and the acoustics are not great so when there are a lot of people it is loud.

I've seen this restaurant for years, but never seemed to get there. A friend and I went for dinner and now I'll definitely add this to my list of places to recommend. They don't have a liquor license, so bring your own wine. The corkage fee is not bad - $3. The choices were excellent and overall, we enjoyed the... More

Brutal, Cruel, Disrespectful ! Not typical words to describe a greeting you receive upon entering a restaurant. Well those are kind words to describe how we were greeted by Kim at River Street Restaurant. And then only to have the added pleasure of her as our server. (oh what a night) Although they have been in business for many years... More

Stopped in as party of 6. Everything was great. The dinner rolls were hot and crunchy. The balsamic dressing salad was very tasty. I had the eggplant and chicken parmesan combo. Great flavor.

This restaurant is a byob which is one thing I love. I have never had a bad meal. The food delicious. One thing I don't like is that it is very cramped. If you are looking for a romantic or quiet dinner out, this would not be the place for you. They accept cash only but they do take reservations.... More

My niece held her wedding rehearsal dinner here. There were 38 of us and it was a nice cosy atmosphere. The food was very good and the children loved it all as well. It's BYOB and soft drinks.. However like several other reviews the service and attitude needs improvement especially as we were such a large group. The appetisers were... More
