6 of us went to this quaint little restaurant (with a big patio) with two othet couples. We trief 3 different salads, two soups and 5 different entrees. Everyone loved their selections and felt they were very well prepared. A couple sitting next to us felt their steak was too well done and the waiter immediately offered to replace it.... More

In a town full of chain fast food and semi-fast meals, River City Grill was a charming surprise. In an old, rather nondescript neighborhood is an old looking building but inside it's brightly decorated with murals on the wall and intriguing art work. They have a full bar and an interesting and reasonably priced wine list. The eclectic menu could... More

Best meal in a long time prawn and scallops in a light curry sauce. 9 out 10. Ate on the patio..no fans..no misters. .2 neighboring cats underfoot..2 waiters looking after 70 people..poor service..probably would not go back. I like good food with great service and some basic comfort levels at over 90°. The cooks have it spot on..too bad the... More

The food was absolutely delicious.. I had the Indian Curry Shrimp. It came over basmati rice with green and red peppers, onions and peanuts. All the veggies were cooked perfectly and so were the shrimp! The dish had a great curry and spicy flavor. And my extra dirty martini was yum! It would have been 5 stars but my service... More

No off street parking - very very loud - strange tasting iced tea - very very expensive & small portions - tastes good but you will leave hungry

We found this little gem of a restaurant in Yuma. We had the pleasure of eating here three times in an eight week time frame. The food was consistently good and each experience was nice and relaxing. We enjoyed the covered patio seating. Now to the food: The River Wrap became our favorite menu item. A very close second was... More

When a bunch of us decided to go out to dinner it was suggested to go to River City as we had some gluten free people, some vegetarians, and in my case carnivores. Boy howdy, did they ever deliver with options for all of us. We were immediately seated and given delicious bread by a helpful busser. Our server arrived... More

We had a reservation to celebrate a special occasion only to be disappointed with a rude and unwelcoming attitude from the owner of the restaurant. We are well aware that the indoor seating is meant to be intimate and cozy. However, that doesn't mean we would like to be seated at a poorly set table that is less than 1.5... More
