Cool River is lovely and the atmosphere is pleasant and soothing. Happy hour is busy with lots of young professionals who work in the DTC area. Their menu is diverse and everything I have had there is very good.

Looking for a nicer place for dinner and this did the trick. Dinners were good size portions and very tasty. Nice atmosphere and friendly service!
