this buffet would be below average when you compare to what you get on the Las Vegas strip hotel buffets for comparable price.

This Buffet is very classy with a great view of the river and mountains. The food was out in smaller quantities to insure freshness. They had carved turkey, not a loaf, a whole huge turkey! Salmon was perfect, sushi too that night. Fantastic and attentive wait staff kept the table clean and the drink full. So enjoyed the time here.

We had a nice breakfast and a lunch here. The atmosphere is congenial and the buffet is well-prepared. We especially enjoyed that they had Chinese dishes as well as the tried and true Canadian breakfast items. Service was right on the money and, unlike many buffets, they served good coffee. If we return to Richmond we will make a point... More

Got a senior discount for the buffet - eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, cereal, fruit, yogurt, porridge, dim sum. tea, coffee, juice and muffins and pastries - it was good value for the money and the service was good.

There aren't many choices for breakfast at the River Rock so our first morning we tried the buffet. It is a bit pricey. The omelets are good but the food in the buffet is hit and miss. The tables neat the windows give you a good view of the river.

The was a lot of selection but the quality of the food has gone way down. The sushi was never replenished and the pasta made to order had a huge line up. Will not go back again Sunday to Thursday. I may give it one more chance on a Friday or Saturday night. Maybe those nights will be better. For... More

What can I say??? Just ate here minutes ago on,12/5/16 and I was absolutely stunned at how bad the food was. Was the positive reviews by people who just don't care about what they put in their mouths? If one or two dishes or half of their food was bad, that was one thing, but every dish at the buffet...
