At first, I really enjoyed the food at River and Rail. It was different, fresh, and well prepared. I agree with previous posters about the salt. Not being a huge "salter" and I can do without salt in my deserts, specifically. The unfortunate thing I have to complain about, is after several times of coming to the restaurant over a series of a couple of months, it seems that the menu is always "real similar". Since the thought is to have something local, I was hoping for more differentiation from week to week and month to month, with just a few items remaining on the day in, day out menu. It seems that there is no lot of choices for those who don't eat much meat and the appetizer menu seems to be "rotated" through only a few items.
The other issue I have had, twice, is that if you order anything with poached eggs (eggs benedict at brunch and a brussel sprout salad), the eggs are not anywhere near what I consider to be poached. The white is very runny. I didn't know that this was their interpretation of pouched and I suggest that they warn those ordering menu items with poached eggs in advance so that, those who do not expect runny egg white in poached eggs, could be forewarned to ask for the eggs to be cooked more. I noticed that, when this happened to me on two occasions, several diners sitting around me also had the same issue and sent their food back.
Overall, the food is good- but differentiation and fair warning about the eggs is needed.
