    It was a wonderful experience dining in the Riverbar Steakhouse and Grill. The service was warm-hearted, as the waitress asked me about the feeling of each course. The toffee pudding and the grilled tiger prawns were my favourite dishes.

    Amazing restaurant! Two visits we’ve had at this place and each time it has wowed us! We will definitely be returning everytime we are in Cambridge! Staff member with long black hair very tentative, amazing at his job and goes the extra mile when it comes to service. He helped with us picking our cocktails and tailored them to our favourite tastes. The food we had was cooked perfectly and tastes amazing. Only one thing I would pick at is the fact there was not a lot of meat on my lobster. Other than that it was an amazing experience.

    First time we have been here was greeted in a friendly manner food wad good Lobster with the steak was loverly although they didn’t get either of our steaks right, peppercorn sauce was delicious! Garlic prawns for started was good. Asked for a bottle of water which we received but wasn’t offered any ice or lemon. Waitress was attentive. No masks were worn by your staff, not sure in the do’s and don't on that one? Great views. Nice atmosphere. Would come again.

    It’s always very good here. I think it’s the best steak in Cambridge overall! Maison du steak is good too and probably larger! But riverside is excellent quality and the drinks and wine list is excellent!! Thank you!! Dudley. :) :D

    Absolutely the best meal I’ve ever had. Food was incredible and great portions. All the staff were so friendly and really attentive to all needs. Would happily come here again.

    The steak was lovely we both had the sirloin and it was so tender and juicy. Although expensive, they are served with a side and sauce and it was all really tasty. The desserts were a little disappointing compared to the mains. I also expected better wine glasses from an upmarket place like this- I am picky about wine glasses!!
