We can't recommend this Restaurant highly enough, the Chef ,Gabriel came to our table when my husband wanted an entree that wasn't on the menu.
He asked what he wanted, went through all the ingredients and made it exactly as he asked, beyond amazing!
It was my Birthday and un known to us two waitresses appeared at our table with an amazing dessert platter while one waitress sang Happy Birthday.
Memorable evening. Can't say enough about it......

Very nice food, just the main course was too much quantity for us.

but was really good taste and service.

I couldn't see river view on that day due to construction.

I hope i can see nice view next time

On Saturday evening there was also the Pikes brewery/winery degustation event in the restaurant, it would have been better if the event had been held in one of the many conference rooms, and left the restaurant to diners not attending the event.

Staff were focussed more on the Pikes event which meant longer than normal in having orders taken etc, we have eaten in the Riverside Restaurant before and had very good service, hence the reason we chose to eat there again for our anniversary, this was not the normal service we have experienced before and we could have gone to many other restaurants and received similar service.

Food was good but overall a disappointing occasion for us spoilt by the mixing of an event with those who want a more pesraonl occasion.

Service was excellent by the wait staff. Food was delivered promptly. Told that slow cooked lamb shoulder would not be ready until after 7, as show commenced at 7.30 was unable to order. Sirloin steak, resembled a sizzle steak - very thin, and not a particularly nice cut. Beans ordered as a side were unpleasantly al dente. Overall food was well below value for money.

Overall the food was a little disappointing.
We had eaten here on many occasions.
Barramundi was over cooked... very mushy but skin was crispy though. French fries were soggy.

Bring back the buffet!!! Like the good old days!

Waiting staff was a bit overboard.... in your face while you’re eating and talking. Not attentive if you needed a top up of your wine which I had to mentioned to them.

A great place to dine before a show with a perfect location near both Adelaide Convention center and Festival theatre in walking distance. Staff are great, very attentive yet discrete.
Good was stunning and delicious.
Remember to give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the experience before a show as you won't be the only ones taking advantage of the location.
Fantastic night.
Thanks

12 friends with my wife and myself enjoyed lunch high tea on Sunday 9th June, the food and service was excellent.
The only complaint we had was the pumpkin soup, we said to the waiter that the soup had a fish taste and was there seafood in the soup. The waiter said he would check with the kitchen, he advised us that the chef said they used a fish stock in the pumpkin soup.
One of our guests doesn’t eat seafood and wouldn’t eat the soup, they did offer her another dish.
I don’t understand why the waiting staff were not informed the the pumpkin soup that was normally vegetables soup had a base of fish stock.
When I phoned and complained to the staff and informed them what had happened they said we would have been advised what was in the soup and offered a vegetarian option. This was definitely not the case. This should have been bought to our attention because a person in our group could have had an allergy to seafood and wouldn’t have exspected a seafood base in a pumpkin soup.

I love dining at Riverside as they are respectful of my dietary requirements.
I was celebrating a birthday and they made me a beautiful " happy birthday " chocolate message with pretty flowers.
They also took a photo of me absolutely super as i look so natural one of the best ever taken of me.

one small point when i book on line it does not tell Riverside that i am booking high coffee instead of high tea.

The High Tea was pleasant and of a good standard however when purchasing the voucher we upgraded to the better quality Mumm Champagne. When arriving we were automatically served the cheaper champagne. The error was corrected but only after we mentioned it.

We then wanted a second glass of champagne and were told that it would be at a price of $30 per glass which is ridiculously excessive for Mumm champagne. We were then informed that we could only buy a bottle. Needless to say we declined.

Our Mother's Day High Tea was fantastic; my mother had such a great time and was made to feel very special by the staff as well as me! The High Tea was very elegantly presented and very nice. The touch of having a gift given to each of us was also lovely. I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion. The High Tea was expensive I thought but understandable given the special day, unlimited champagne, tea and coffee.
