ended up leaving, was pretty disappointed with the service. Have been here previously and enjoyed- however waited over 20 minutes and received no water or service...we left
Excellent service and food. Staff was very attentive without being too much. Food was excellent. Restuarant has a great location, design, view and ambiance.
I love River Roast! I always recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting Chicago! I love the Family style serving and the food is always on point! Atmosphere and the view of the river and city are perfect!
Lovely setting. Loved the chicken pot pie!
The wedge salad was flavorless, mushroom toast outstanding. The pork shank was good. Overall the menu was not very interesting. Very loud so conversation was difficult.
We were holidaying for my husbands birthday and had great food, good service and s lovely table by the window
My husband and I had received a gift card for the Levy group last Christmas. We decided to use it for our anniversary, and after looking over the choices decided on River Roast, and are very glad we made that choice! Beautiful location and ambiance, and was very nicely decorated for the holidays. Our server was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. The smell when we walked in was heavenly, and the food lived up to it. We shared the prime rib, which was cooked perfectly and plenty for 2 people. My husband had the shrimp toast, and I had the mushroom toast, and they both were so good (and the portions were extremely generous). Everything is ala carte, so it can be a little pricey, but not ridiculously so (though I do think they could at least give you bread with dinner). The noise level was ok, which given the high ceilings was surprising, but welcome. All in all a wonderful celebration for our 42 anniversary. I highly recommend.
Had the MOST amazing experience. The atmosphere was clean, festive, and lovely. The food was incredible, the menu choices unique and also classic, the service top notch - I will be returning!
good meal :) very pretty interior
Awesome decor and location. Food was top notch! Highly recommend the lobster burger & (small bites) meatballs.
Excellent....very very toast
It was perfect experience
Awesome Thanksgiving dinner. Food was great, service was great and the view was great..
Our table did not have window views. We were in the room with the television. Which was disappointing. I booked it wanting the view. Otherwise food and service was very good
Unbelievable experience for thanksgiving dinner. Food, atmosphere and service was perfect. Already looking forward to returning
Great scenery next to the Chicago River. We enjoyed watching the water traffic during our dining experience. The Service was Outstanding; Priscilla was very attentive and sociable. The food was delicious.
We loved almost everything about it! This was our fifth year here at River Roast for Thanksgiving and I was very happy when I got the email they were hosting again afterall.
The restaurant was a bit over-crowded, elbow to elbow where we were sat, but the food was still delicious as usual. My son is a vegetarian and found ample options that made us feel like it was a great value, even for him. I hope they host again next year.
This was an extreme disappointment ! We were walked through the bowels of the restaurant on our way to our table, we walked basically through the kitchen and other empty rooms to our room. One can over look this obvious blight but the thanksgiving experience continues, food was ok until the “carvng” area, They said there was roast beef, turkey, g BG Sm and salmon, a basic course in cooking have been appreciated! Salt was overused , heat was overused and for way too long unless you appreciate shoe leather! I am stopping here becauseI have been here many times , with good reviews but this was a very big miss and not worth the money.
Service was great
Food was awesome
Loved it! Best burger ever!!!!
Food was very well prepared.
We took friends from out of town and we all loved it
Went here with a party of 5 for dinner on Saturday night, great service, got our food fast, delicious cocktails, best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever had!
We were at River Roast to celebrate our anniversary. We did not broadcast it ahead of time but just mentioned it toward the end of the meal. The waitress caught this and immediately brought us each a glass of champagne. It was unexpected but a generous gesture for our celebration. The food was delicious and the view of the river was sparkling. Overall a great venue to celebrate!
I moved to Wisconsin from California early this year and my girlfriends and I met in Chicago for the weekend for girlfriends time. I will never go to Chicago and miss a trip to River Roast. I celebrated my engagement here and it’s safe to say I’m obsessed. It’s magical in the summer on the patio and just as wonderful inside in the fall and winter. Their chicken and prime rib are TO DIE FOR and don’t even think about not ordering the elote corn side.
Good service and food. A little pricey for what you get but overall we enjoyed the food.
Wonderful time at River Roast today. We were celebrating my husband’s 60th and our server, Jorge, was amazing! From the start he went out of his way to make it special. The other staff were attentive and friendly as well. They always are. You cannot go wrong. The food was the usual deliciousness we’ve come to love and the icing on the cake was that Lindsay Alexander was the Blues artist performing. Perfection! It was around our 7th ir
8th time here and we’ll be back for sure!
Everything about our visit to River Roast was amazing! Blew my expectations put of the water. Will absolutely recommend: that chicken is worth traveling for!
I was genuinely impressed.
Great setting next to the river. Appetizing smells and charming atmosphere. And Schlitz!
Amazing place with great music. You can’t go wrong at River Roast
Visited Chicago from the east coast and visited this place for our last dinner before we flew out the next morning. We had the prime rib and both felt that it was the best prime rib we've ever had. Overall, this was a phenomenal choice. The food (sides included) was cooked to perfection. The waitress was friendly and attentive, and the restaraunt is located right on the river with a great view. We'll drfinitelynbe returning. Awesome spot!
food was delicious!
A great place to share a special occasion meal, the ambiance is fantastic! Our server was amazing and the food was delicious! Get the carrot cake, probably the best I've ever had in my life.
The experience was killed by having a server who knew little about the menu, was unable to communicate due to limited english and was overwhelmed by her "3 tables". We went based on someone telling us about the charcuterie - however our server was unable to explain the menu, knew nothing about the meat/cheese choices available. So we opted to skip the option entirely.
Our Roasted Potatoes were basically burnt - yet when we tried to explain to our server she really seemed to not even understand what burnt meant.
On a positive note, the Tomahawk steak was delicious, the chicken was delicious and the barata was amazing.
The restaurant is in a very busy river North location, there is no way they can't find more capable servers in the Chicago area.
trying to pay is a nightmare - no one knows what they are doing.
Everything was fresh and amazing.
Great brunch spot. The food and service are always awesome! We love that they have live music during brunch on the weekends as well.
very nice for the location, I would suggest some salt for the chicken but a very nice time
Unexpectedly I had to return my quiche two times because it was cold or lukewarm in the center. Fortunately, the experience was not lost on the manager and wait staff, who handled the situation with care and discretion. We were not charged for it and they brought out, as a peace offering of sorts, a chicken and waffles “dessert“, which really was a nice touch. Others in my group had the hangover soup, which they felt was the best they ever had. We definitely would come back, probably not get the quiche, though…
Amazing! Great service. Cool ambiance. Tasty food!
