    Some of the best steak tartare we’ve had! Grouper was terrific! Roasted cauliflower was delicious. Clearing the table and refilling water was delayed. Pork chop was a little dry.

    Wow! Excellent meal, drinks and service. Beautiful restaurant, music playing in the background was audible but didn't interfere with conversation. All our steaks were perfectly prepared. The crab cakes are outstanding! No filler, just crab! Nice wine list, and crafted cocktails were tasty, just a little late arriving (appetizers beat the drinks to the table). Rest of the service was attentive and timely. Our server continued to fill our waters even after bill was paid and we chatted waiting for our Lyft. Excellent experience!

    Booked as group of 3 and ended up being 12 or 13 of us. I suspect we were quite loud so sorry to the other diners but the restaurant organised every thing brilliantly for us and we had a great time. We hadn’t been together for 3 years and suddenly we’re all in town. The food and wine was excellent and the service brilliant. Well done, awesome

    My wife and I were in Nashville for the first time on business, prior to going on the trip I researched restaurants for dinner and came across The River House. From the website and their menu it appeared that The River House looked good. I can honestly state and being well traveled and a foodie, The River House exceeded every expectation we had. From the time we arrived, we were graciously greeted by the hostess and taken to our table. The ambiance was perfect and it only got better, our waiter was exceptional, informative and knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. Once we ordered, the wine arrived so that we could enjoy a glass with our appetizers, the main course arrived and we were completely overwhelmed by the quality, the preparation and the flavors. The desert was excellent. The service was not rushed but relaxed and in a timely manner. The only thing I wish I could do is give The River House 10 stars, we returned there the next and final day of our visit for lunch, again, everything previously stated held true for lunch. Anytime we return to Nashville, The River House will be at the very top of our list to visit.

    Incredibly dissatisfied with our experience this past time. We specifically came to have Kevin as our server, and called ahead to make sure the reservation request was seen on Open Table. I specifically told the hostess we would move our reservation to a different date to have our requested server and was assured we would have him, and then when we showed up he was not our server. Food was phenomenal as always, Kevin stopped by and was delightful, and our other server was fine. Just incredibly confused and frustrated by the host stand service.

    Our server was Kevin and if I could give him 10 stars I would. This restaurant was very pretty and the food was a bit pricey but delicious. The best part of our Mother’s Day brunch was Kevin. His service was great! His personality was just wonderful. He helped us with decisions on what to order and was fun and friendly and we can’t wait to come back and have him take care of us again. Never let him leave. He is a gem.
