Lobster night! What could be bad. Our server was very attentive, food was delicious and a fantastic dirty martini! One of our favorite places.

Service was good. We were seated right away. Very relaxed atmosphere. I thought the bill was a little steep. The only complaint was we felt rushed looking at the menu. We were never there before and as soon as we sat down, the waiter was there asking what we wanted.

I will never eat in this restaurant again. The mussel pot appetizer was crunchy due to grit and sand. I was 3/4's through my entree of Seafood Pacchieri when I discovered what I thought was a rock or stone the size of a small grape. I was then told by the wait staff that it was actually part of the burner or grill. Although apologetic they still wanted me to pay for the entree. After complaining the management only took off half of the price of the entree. We still had to pay $50 over the price of our groupon. If you enjoy swatting bugs away from your food maybe this is the restaurant for you. I on the other hand will never be back!

We entered a little after they opened, at 11:30AM for lunch. We were greeted by Max who was also our server. He was friendly and accommodating. I ordered the Paella which came quickly, was hot and tasty. There was so much seafood on the plate that I was able to take some home for the next days dinner. They heard it was my birthday, so they put a candle in the lava cake I ordered and Max and another employee sang happy birthday to me. I loved my experience and would definitely go back.

Service good
Meal excellent
When booking the reservation I indicated anniversary. Why ask this during booking if it is not acknowledged at check in for a personalized experience?

We came to the Riverhouse grille for my daughter's birthday after a cruise on the Freeport water taxi, since it is right next door. We knew nothing at all about it, but were very pleasantly surprised. it was a beautiful night, so we ate outdoors, at the front of the restaurant. The bread was fresh and delicious with seasoned olive oil to dip. Our entrees were also delicious--surf and turf, sirloin and shrimp, penne alla vodka and chicken francese. So we has beef, chicken , seafood, and pasta and all were very good. The waiter and busboy were spot on with service and timing, feeling water and taking our order.

Have been here many times before, but was very disappointed this time. On a Saturday night it was packed and not enough wait staff. I think I spoke to my waiter once and that was when we ordered. The paella was expensive $59 (my bad for not asking in advance) and it was not worth it. Not very good at all. A bit surprised. And why don;t they have normal martini glasses, not the short stubby ones. It takes away from the experience. Not a good night. Restaurant is overrated.

Between the flies flying around the dining room, dish not being served as described , being extremely overpriced and charging for soda refills on flat soda I will pass on this restaurant in the future.

The food was good. For the starter, the calamari was pretty good, not greasy and over fried. The chicken parmigiana is pretty large and tasted good, it can be a shared meal. The oysters were alright, they just didn’t taste the usual bluepoint (we were told), and no they weren’t gone bad since there was no smell (and the fact I am still alive writing this comment lol). The Paella was good and large portion as well. I don’t remember the name of the drinks, but we all liked what we had (in terms of flavor and amount of alcohol).
The service was pretty good but a bit disappointed. We wanted to the outside table by the water and they couldn’t accommodate it, considering there were tables for max 4 people and there were 5 of us. I am not sure why they couldn’t help us since it was a week day and the restaurant was pretty empty. Their excuse was that only one of the tables could have been arranged for us which is already in use by other parties. Despite the fact that I had made reservation, noted my request in the reservation, and had called to make sure they were aware of my request.

Wanted to sit outside on this beautiful night but it was already filled. Sat inside and frankly after seeing how small the outside was it would not been accommodating to our large in count party. The service was amazing, the food delicious, perfect evening. Would go back

I went for the steamer special. Buy one order, get an order free. The steamers and salad were delicious but the portion of steamers was too small. It was like they split one order into 2. I don’t recommend this unless you have s very small appetite.

Felt very rushed. Main dishes were brought out while we were still eating appetizers. After ordering desert, the waiter came back and told us they didn’t have the apple pie.

Overall our dinner was an excellent experience. The only negative was the noise level. We felt like we had to shout to hear one another. But, service was top notch, the food was really delicious, and the portions were very generous. We were there to celebrate our son's 5th grade graduation and had a cake with us, and the staff was great about storing the cake until the end of our meal, and then bringing it out when we were ready. That extra bit of service was very appreciated!

It was for Father’s Day, it was loud, the place is definitely small, maybe they can take away one or two tables to make the restaurant more roomy. The food was definitely good, our waiter was so busy we had to wait super long for us drinks. I would revisit sometime just not on a holiday

Can’t blame the restaurant, we ate outside, the street was very noisy. However, we never received our appetizers, they just brought our main course, they took it off the bill. Heard other tables with the same complaint. Stuff lobster was over cooked, but the steamed lobster was nice and tender. I will not be back.

I went here for a birthday dinner and while there are many options on the mile, this was by far one of the best. We choose the outdoor seating at the back and while there were a lot of gnats flying around the wind kept them away. Our server was very attentive and the food was good.
