Ordered a pint, to be told the beer lines were not working, couldn’t get a pint. Myself and my partner ordered a steak sandwich and a steak sizzle and onions rings to be told there was no Onion Rings, Steak or Beef. This was a Saturday night, how can a ‘restaurant’ not have beef or steak for service on a Saturday night? Won’t be back.

Service was very slow. By the time our mains were served the kitchen was closed. Not offered dessert. To get a drink we needed to go to the bar.

Christmas Eve with family. Chose steak sandwich. No ciabatta for sandwich. Was offered just the steak without the bread. Then no steak. Opted for steak pie. Told same streak used for pie as sandwich. No pie. Opted for coconut curry. Tasteless. Chips half cooked. Absolutely terrible would not eat there again. Had been told by someone it’s poor but everyone has different taste so gave benefit of doubt. Friends opinion was right. Very poor and very disappointing. Over £100 for that. Never again.

First time at the river, amazing place, view right over the river, even at night there’s always something to see. The vibe in the place was cool even with our kids in tow, service was exemplary , food & wine where fantastic, great recommendations from the staff on the wine. Would definitely recommend & will definitely be back. Love the overall design and style of the river

Lovely restaurant and beautiful views. Food was very nice, desserts a little slow to be served. Disappointed with the cheesecake as the base was a little stale rather than crunchy. Pleasantly surprised when the bill showed main courses as half price.

Went for a family meal to celebrate my wee ones birthday. The evening meal deal and kids eat for £1.00 was a great offer. Food was great and the service from the waitress was excellent if just a wee bit slow especially for the kids. Overall a great treat out and we will definitely be back and would recommend to our friends.

Lovely restaurant with beautiful view. Waiter Jordan was lovely. Will definitely be back. Small point - we found it difficult to get the attention of someone when we needed condiments. The restaurant was reasonably busy but it would have been helpful if staff checked in with tables to see if everything was okay x

Booked here for a meal with the family (party of 6) and we were not disappointed! The place is looking great since its renovation and the online booking system made it easy to modify the reservation time when we chose to make it earlier (twice!). The staff were friendly and attentive and we all enjoyed the food we each ordered- my parents love a moan and even they thought it was excellent! The cocktail selection is smaller than it was as Flava but still has a few good yummy picks. No Tennants but my dad was happy with the St Mungos he had instead. Thank you and I’ll definitely be recommending!

My only negative issue is it is not clear when booking where you are eating. I booked online for The River expecting it to therefore be upstairs. We arrived to find it wasn't. Please make it clearer at the time. Apart from that a really good evening.

We had a great meal. Food was fabulous, well priced and great views thrown in. The service at the start was a bit slow but that’s probably just because we were towards the end of service and maybe a bit more communication around the delays would have been helpful. The quality of the food made up for the wait! It’s a new venture and will have some teething blips. We will definitely be back and would certainly recommend to our friends. I’m sure next time it will be 5 stars all round!
