“great to walk around, lots of food choices”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

movies, dinner, coffee, and some shopping. Good parking, nice environment. a good choice Everytime you go, you can have a varied experience because of the huge range of food options. The one thing that is missing is a nice bakery, coffee shop with music, sofas wifi and indoor/outdoor seating.
Sometimes the seating by starbucks is not cleaned often.

“Pleasant enough place, go for the restaurants”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Not at all run-of-the-mill shopping plaza, The River looks and feels high end. Most of the stores/restaurants face an inner courtyard with a pleasant water feature and attractive landscaping. We stopped to watch and listen to a harpist playing some beautiful music outside. The place is quite compact - you can do the full circle in less than 10 minutes; unless you are tempted to shop in one of the stores or linger for food or drinks in one of the nice restaurants. Don't look for Target or TJ Maxx, it's not that kind of place.

“Top venue”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Easily located by the side of Hwy 111 with views of the mountains and scenic river in front of the venue.

The River has a good selection of restaurants such as Babes,Aqua Pazza,Cheesecake Factory,PF Changs etc.

Shops wise, it has a couple of shoe shops,art galleries etc.

I like the river as it is very close to the Westfield at Palm Dessert and makes an excellent stop for diner after a day of shopping.

The place is also spotlessly clean,has ample parking with security and is just well run,
