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.

    The restaurant was a pleasing find. By the riverside, it offered a good view (ignoring the building work!). The food was fantastic! We'll definitely be back!

    Good immediate impression of the whole set up. One of the main features for us was the harbour side location. The carvery and young server was excellent and politely presented to us. The waitress, who we liked, seemed a little hesitant to bring and leave a jug of tap water to our table. That, together with the fish query as below , was our only hesitation and was the only reason I didn't give you an otherwise 5 star rating.

    Friday evening, perfectly cooked Osso buco, but Beetroot gnocchi were a little too large and did not cook to be as light as gnocchi should. The previous evening the celeriac panda cotta starter was divine in our pre-theatre dinner.
    Staff as always so slick and friendly.

    Lovely fresh food. Great, friendly staff ( Wictor was particularly good). Beautiful setting by the harbour and lovely live music whilst we ate.

    The food was lovely and the ambience of the setting wonderfully set off by the views of the river, jazz music in the background and attentiveness of the friendly staff. Memorable and charming evening, thank you!

    This is a real find, delicious Sunday roast, starters and pudding; exceptional value. The staff were attentive and friendly and the vista has a holiday feel, I will be returning.

    The restaurant was in a lovely setting with superb views of the harbour. The staff were friendly and helpful and very attentive. The food was delicious and cooked beautifully. My favourite dish was my dessert which was a chocolate raspberry bomb which melted under hot chocolate sauce. My husband enjoyed his steak which was cooked to perfection and complemented with garlic butter sauce. Overall a most enjoyable experience.

    Lovely service atmosphere and food. Staff were very open and polite.

    Quiet and sophisticated ambience. Excellent service but overall experience was marred by poor main course. Lamb shank was advertised as slow cooked but it was tough and tasteless and did not fall easily off the bone as one would expect and fat was still stretchy and not rendered down. It needed more seasoning and a few extra hours of slow cooking. The waiter did offer a glass of wine to compensate but the maitre D did not in the end charge us for the dish so this was resolved to my satisfaction. However, as it was a meal to celebrate my birthday, the meal was somewhat disappointing.
