We went to the restaurant to try the Sunday feature 2-course menu for $28.95. There is a choice of 3 entrees, but we all had the roast prime rib. The meal was delicious, although the portion of beef could have been a bit more plentiful. The atmosphere was comfortable and the service was excellent. We will definitely be back to try out the other two entrees, plus visit on another day where we can try some of the items on the regular menu.
Great dinner out but we had to sit in the smaller room which on Saturday night turned out to be very noisy. Food was a 10! We will be back.
The staff was welcoming, the food was great, the atmosphere was warm and inviting. It was quiet enough to enjoy conversation around the table and we had a lovely time with friends on a cold late winter evening.
Third time to this restaurant, it never disappoints. Great food, friendly staff.
The food was amazing! Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely go here again!
Exceptional service and food ! Had a great time with the family. The food was amazing. Highly recommend Sunday dinner.
Very nice experience. Service was excellent and food was excellent as well. It will be a great place to sit in the summer. Sunday dinner special was well priced and very good.
The food and service were exceptional! We will definitely be back.
Lamb was great! Steak was ok. Waitress was good very knowledgeable about the menu.
Wonderful meal; will definitely be back
We were a group of 6 out for a birthday celebration. We started with/shared the duck confit, bison carpaccio, and the cauliflower - all three were excellent - we enjoyed the cauliflower so much, that we ordered another one to take home. The entrees were are beautifully presented and tasted great. We were there for 3.5 hours and did not feel rushed. The service was friendly without being intrusive. We will definitely be back!
Food was fantastic. I had the seed coconut chicken appetizer the was delicious and great to share and than had the sturgeon fish and coconut dish for dinner lighten up my taste buds. So good.
The food was awesome. We really enjoyed the Sunday dinner concept. Looking forward to going for the normal menu on a different day.
Very good food. Dan has rekindled the charm and quality of this location
It was a quieter evening at the restaurant. Service was impeccable, yet not in your face. The food was delicious. Will not hesitate to go back.
Fantastic evening at Riverbank Bistro. Great food and service. Will be back again for a nice night out.
Wonderful service and well prepared and presented food. Everything we had was a delight.
We tried out the Sunday dinner menu and was very pleased. There are three choices: prime rib, salmon and chicken. We had the prime rib and salmon. The prime rib was nicely done. Portion was on the small side but was reflected in the price. The salmon was a more generous portion and was moist and tasty. It was a very nice experience to enjoy dinner without music blasting away and impeding the ability to carry on a quiet conversation. Definitely will be back and with friends!
The food was great, fresh and unique flavours! They had local beer on tap and it was a quiet date spot. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and made our night!
My husband and I were very pleased with the venue and the quality of food, we will be back!
We received a gift card from our son for Christmas to the Riverbank Bistro so we finally made a reservation a week ago. When we walked in the atmosphere was very cozy and we were greeted by Dan Ducharme who is the Chef and owner. Once seated we had a lovely young lady introduce herself as our server for the evening. My husband had a Caesar salad to start and then the 6 oz Tenderloin which he said was better than the Keg and he's always enjoyed their steaks. I started with the Jersusalem Artichoke soup which is a bowl of creamy goodness and I would recommend it to anyone. For my entrée I had the Salmon with Bacon & Corn Succotash and Herb Spaetzle. I have never had such tender salmon, it was amazing. For dessert, we had Key Lime Pie and the Wildberry Crisp both of which were so delicious. We will be back for sure and would recommend it to anybody who is looking to be spoiled. The presentation is amazing and you can see the creativity and pride that goes into each dish. What a great addition to St. Albert and we both wish Dan and his team great success.
Excellent food and ambience and the chef/owner came out to say hi, which I like.
We did a Valentine’s Day plus one as we prefer selecting from a complete menu. This is definitely upscale dining and so we expected it to be good and were not disappointed. Selection was good, I had the short ribs which were very tender and the vegetables a nice blend and a reasonable sized dish so I could have dessert! My wife had the chicken which she said was delicious. Service was great, never an empty wine glass. The chef came by our table at the end of the meal to make sure everything was to our liking. A lovely evening, we recommend eating there and will be back.
Came here for happy hour for the first time! Delicious appies at a low cost. Great value, excellent service and perfect ambience! Must try!! This place is a gem!
Everything to love about this place. The food is great, service professional and friendly, and the decor is a perfect mix of casual and elegant.
Excellent flavors and great menu. Wine selection is well suited for the dishes.
We went specifically for the Sunday evening Prime Rib and it was amazing.
A neighbourhood gem! Excellent food and great service with a casual fine dining atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Everything was great. It was nice to see the River Bank Bistro up to the standards of the former Riverhouse Grill. BRAVO
Date night dinner was nice. Location is a bit noisy but on the good side this maybe means this iteration will make money and not close. Good creative plating
FINE DINING IN ST ALBERT. Our second visit to the Riverbank and it is easily our best choice for a 'special' meal with friends. A great menu which offers a selection of dishes only seen in the best restaurants and well priced. Our favorites, so far: Lamb Shank, Short Ribs, Sturgeon Fillet, Salmon fillet. All expertly prepared and presented. The service is well done, respectful and the servers are well versed in their products. The dining room is suitable for pleasant conversation, even when it is busy. A good choice!
We had read the reviews of the new ownership and were somewhat dubious after the '12-Acres' debacle and we can absolutely attest to the fact that the Riverbank Bistro is definitely a 'cut above'. The drinks were fantastic, the server was courteous & professional and the meal was prepared and served to perfection.
Everything was outstanding. My girlfriend and I had a few appies and a glass of wine - the food was fantastic, left one wanting to lick their plate so as not to miss anything!
Everything was fabulous.
Would it be possible to have a cocktail menu along with the wine menu?
