Has anyone been to Riverpark restaurant on the far east side? Thoughts on what to order?

  1. I was a big fan of Riverpark when they opened about a year ago. Had some great meals (both food and service). My two most recent meals in the spring were very disappointing from a service standpoint, and I haven't been back since. I hope they've addressed the service problems.

    1. Always impressed with food and top-notch service.

      I was there a couple of nights ago, but just had the bar/patio menu. The Cheese Empanadas are simply too friggin' good. This will be a staple order whenever I make there. Also had the crispy Fried Chicken. 3 generous tasty pieces with spiced honey dressing on the side and some of the best biscuits I've had lately.

      I sat on the bar and the bar service was very helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. Let me sample wines before I order by the glass.

      1. I had a terrific meal there over the summer with no service issues. I believe I had Arctic char, which was excellent, and a very impressive chocolatey dessert.

          Great dish ... that Arctic Char.
          I can't wait to go back for that.

        2. I had a great meal there in July. The pork chop is a must. Just fabulous!

          You can find photos of my meal here, if you're interested:

          1. I have been twice, once was about 6 weeks ago. I was unimpressed by both the food and the service. I do not intend to return.
