Riverbend used to be one of my favourite places too eat. Over the past 2-3 years we noticed the service and food declining. Still a very nice atmosphere and patio to dine on. Food has been very average and nothing worth going back for.

This place used to be a bery popular tourist destination, nestled among the beautiful vineyards, great service, excellent food. Recently tge ownership has changed and there is a big decline in service. We went there for breakfast with some friends, our order took forever to arrive. There was only one server on duty, his English needs a bit more practice... More

We have stayed overnight at the Riverbend Inn on 3 separate occasions. Each time came with free breakfast and a voucher toward dinner. The first two times the food was very good. The breakfast in particular was fresh and generously portioned. Our third visit to the restaurant was okay, but not as good as our first two visits. Breakfast was... More

I stayed at the hotel on a Travel Zoo Promotion and they included a $40 dinning voucher so I decided to try the dinning room. It is a small dinning so be prepared to be next to someone else. The service which was two servers was very friendly and helpful. The food selection was from a limited menu but there... More

We recently stayed at the Riverbend and ate dinner in the restaurant twice as we enjoyed it so much. The atmosphere is beautiful and we experienced amazing sunsets while dining, the dining room is quaint and cute. It is a notch below fine dining but it is great in that it is not pretentious or stuffy. The food is great,... More

The restaurant was quite nice. Service very good, portion good as well. Had the steak dinner which was delicious. Also had salad and was lacking dressing, so they brought me some extra.

Please do not let the negative reviews affect your views of this restaurant. After reading so many negative reviews I was concerned about the birthday evening I had planned for my wife. We received a gift certificate for this restaurant and thought we'd go anyway. This was the most amazing experience we've ever had. The service was great and the... More

2 words: STAY AWAY. Yes it is a beautiful area but the customer service is the worse I have ever encountered. I tried for a week to speak to a manager to no avail. No calls were returned and no email response either. In addition, this restaurant so called chef should be ashamed to serve such poor quality meals. What... More

We went for Fabulicious2016 with a group of friends. I had the soup which was great, and my husband had the crepe which he enjoyed. The main course was the disappointment. My husband asked for the prime rib sandwich to be rare, instead it was well done. He also asked for some more horseradish and instead got a little container... More

My husband and I were looking for a small lunch and thought we'd try the Riverbend. We were pleasantly surprised. I had the salad with duck and my husband had the trio of seafood (crab cakes, scallops and shrimp). Everything we had was perfect. Prices were a bit high, but the setting was lovely. Would definitely go back.
