On the edge of the harbour side, River Grille features modern British cuisine and a sophisticated lounge bar. In one of Bristol's finest locations, The River Grille'spacious dining room has dramatic light features, sleek furnishings and striking views, and plays host to a pianist on Fridays and live jazz on Saturdays.
The flavoursome dishes on the regularly changing River Grille menus make good use of fine local produce from the West Country. Sample dishes include West Country stone bass with salsa verde, Ruby & West's finest steaks, Beetroot and ricotta gnocchi with a white wine and shallot cream sauce and to finish luxurious chocolate fondant with chocolate crumb and vanilla ice cream.
Afternoon tea features freshly baked scones, along with homemade cakes and pastries. There are freshly made finger sandwiches, and a selection of fine teas.
At the Centre of the city, the River Grille Restaurant is a 10 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station and right on the Narrow Quay Harbourside.

We try to make a point of eating at the River grille at least half dozen times a year. Great ambience & location. Fine dining & great wine list!

Food was lovely but the main meal was served in a large bowl rather than a plate, this meant my knife slid into my gravy at least 3 times during my dinner.

We had a very enjoyable meal on the two nights...... food was excellent and as a seafood lover found both fish dishes excellent...... fresh and presented well... will certainly visit again.

Booked for a 1730 dinner before a show. Reception was good and a good table by the window. Good menu, scallops starter followed by Cod fillet and brioche bread and butter pudding, my wife had the lamb followed by the same pudding. All the food was excellent although there was a bit of a wait between courses even though there were very few people dining at that time. That would be our only minor complaint, the rest was very good would have been 5 stars had there not been the delay.

It was an elegant restaurant with nicely dressed tables and good service. I loved the live piano music.
