The only fault I had was the tables are very close together and conversations can be heard very easily

Great family meal. Food was very tasty and service excellent. It was New Years Eve so hard to gauge re atmosphere but if three teenagers enjoyed it it can’t be bad.

We hand a lovely dinner on 29th December however we were charged for item that wasn't given to us and also the toast was burnt. When we have feedback on this it was passed off as nothing and the food came.at all different times which wasn't ideal.

Recently on the 10th december I saw an add for your page on Instagram regarding getting a free cocktail with every main Sunday to Thursday between 6 and 730pm. It failed to say this was not valid over Christmas which in turn we only found out when sitting to our meal last Sunday. It's wrong to false advertise I had proof of the advertisement too

It's my 28th meal at the River Lee in the last 15 months. Consistently excellent. This time I brought the family for a birthday treat, which was appreciated and enjoyed by all. Food was excellent, service outstanding. All of the staff were attentive without being in your face. Would definitely recommend.

The blonde lady/Manager working in the restaurant was excellent & had great Customer experience/service skills. The waiters & waitresses were very careless on a number of occasions....asked 4 of us for drinks orders, took 2 and walked away leaving the other 2 ppl sitting there?? They then had to ask to order later? Asked to bring husband's 40th bday cake after teas & coffees & they brought it ages b4 so my brother missed the bringing out of the cake... May seem petite but he was very disappointed because it was a very special cake. Food was delicious, still don't understand why spuds, chips or veg don't come with most mains & you have to pay extra...is that not normally what you would expect to be in a meal? Stunning setting & again delicious food but service very poor. Didn't like that you had to pay for getting bread on the table also....normally a given in a restaurant. Thanks for delicious steak though & a nice night out!

I went to the River Club with work colleagues for a team evening out and we all had a great time! The food was excellent and service was wonderful - the real highlight is the venue though! The Art Deco design is lovely, and the brilliant outdoor seating, overlooking the Lee, was a highlight. Highly recommended!

I found whilst most of the staff were friendly the service was poor. We had to request certain items multiple times. Items were forgotten when ordered. I found paying €25 for a steak and then having to order a side separately made the dish very expensive. We were asked to leave by a lady which I think could have been handled better by offering us a table in the bar and moving our drinks in there for us rather then telling us to go. The waiter that we paid I found rude and I don’t think it’s up to the customers to work out what they owe when splitting the bill. It was disappointing as having booked a number of weeks in advance there was a mix up when we arrived also which involved moving tables twice. I have heard great reviews of this hotel but it was a disappointment for us!

We had a lovely night in The River Lee. The food was very good, and we had a great seating area which had plenty of room for the 10 of us. The service was excellent. I must specifically mention the guy from Belfast as he was superb and went above and beyond to ensure we all had an enjoyable night. He kept the first lady that arrived company until the next in the group arrived and made sure she was comfortable and not self conscious about sitting there on her own. He was fantastic to us all night long and even when we had to move tables, he ensured we moved with ease and got somebody to move our coats and drinks. The music was a bit loud in the early part of the night and a bit more suited to a night club (but maybe that's just us showing our age!!). All in all, I would highly recommend the River Lee for anything from a nice meal for 2 to an office get together, it can cater for all needs.
