“Dinner after a movie.”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The Riverview Theater - kitty corner from the Wine Bar - is the best movie value in town! So having purchased $2 movie tickets we thought we could splurge on a glass of wine and a light dinner at the Riverview Wine Bar. It was a very cold (we're talking Minnesota cold) evening and after a brief wait we were ushered to a table right next to the fireplace - warm and toasty. Our server could not have been more pleasant with a great smile and helpful suggestions. Recommendations include an excellent French Onion Soup, a variety of reasonably priced wine options, The Old Speckled Hen, and the nightly special.

“Nice neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I have been to this restaurant a few times, the last time just last Friday. I had one of the specials, a burger with oven roasted potatoes and a wine flight from Spain. Both were good. I also tried the chocolate mousse and my friend had the apple crisp. My mousse was too sweet, but the apple crisp was still warm and absolutely delicious. The service was also great. Our server took time to suggest a wine we would enjoy and did a great job!

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We found this place while waiting to see a movie at the Riverview Theater across the street. Food was extremely good, and beer and wine selection were awesome. Even good options for kids. We'll definitely go back sometime.

“Pleasantly Romantic”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I couldn't actually see the river from the restaurant, but that's ok because I was on a first date with a lovely person. The waitress walked us through our wine and cheese options and then took very good care of us as we enjoyed the evening. The Italian wine flight was lovely and if you can, get all three cheese options which are accompanied by fruit and salad that compliment the cheeses.

“Great neighborhood place”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

If you like wine this is the place to go. They have a good selection and very knowledgable staff to help you pick the wine you'll enjoy. They have a small, but always good menu. I love the carrot curry soup!
