    The restaurant is well-situated with lovely views across the harbour. However, the service was extremely slow although the waiting staff were polite. For the price, the food was good but not amazing. We were charged for two bowls of olives although we only asked for one. Overall experience could have been better.

    Very lovely atmosphere, with the most wonderful live pianist. The food was exquisite and tasted very fresh. I had the braised beef cheeks and my partner had the chicken dish. We both commented on the freshness of the mashed potato and the meat being cooked so beautifully. Great place to eat, will definitely be returning in the future!

    We celebrated my husband’s 50th birthday and I cannot thank you enough, the table was decorated with birthday confetti and the food was excellent, the staff very friendly and brought him a treat with happy birthday piped onto the plate after. It all felt very special and was excellent value for money.

    The staff were amazing! I told them it was my partner’s birthday and they decorated the table, did a birthday card and really made her feel special. I didn’t need to ask for any of that.

    Lovely quiet atmosphere. Attentive staff. Good food. Albeit we did have a problem with the delivery of an Irish coffee, no cream, which was eventually found. Very enjoyable fine dining experience

    The restaurant is in a great location, very clean and inviting, all the staff were very polite and attentive. All the food we ordered was very good, the only complaint was with the samphire it was to woody so not eatable. I will recommend to all and when back in Bristol will visit again. Thank you for a great meal and great evening.

    We absolutely loved dining at the River Grille Bristol on Saturday Night. We were celebrating my Fathers birthday and he absolutely loved it too. Staff were extremely attentive, the live piano music was a extra special touch and the food choice was great for meat-eaters and vegetarian options. Price of food was appropriate for food quality and nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Location was lovely and atmosphere busy but comfortable. Will be visiting again.
