Caring Staff - In addition to serving up delicious food, the staff at River Café are also incredibly caring and attentive. They go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable and that your needs are taken care of. They're always happy to answer any questions you may have about the menu or wine list, and they're more than happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions or allergies you may have.

The Location

River Café is located on Prince's Island Park in downtown Calgary. The park is situated on an island in the middle of the Bow River, and it's a beautiful spot for a leisurely stroll or a picnic lunch on a sunny day. In the winter, the park transforms into a winter wonderland, complete with an outdoor skating rink.

The setting for River Café couldn't be more perfect. The restaurant itself is situated in an old converted farmhouse, and it has been beautifully renovated. The décor is modern yet warm and inviting, and the floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views of the river and the park beyond.

The Food

As mentioned earlier, one of the things that makes dining at River Café so special is the commitment to using fresh, seasonal ingredients that are sourced from local purveyors. This dedication to quality results in dishes that are absolutely bursting with flavor.

Some of our favorite dishes include the roasted chicken (which comes with summer vegetables and potatoes), the grilled Alberta beef tenderloin (with roasted mushrooms and Yukon gold mashed potatoes), and the pan-roasted rainbow trout (with fiddleheads, new potatoes, and lemon butter sauce). For dessert, you simply cannot go wrong with the café's signature chocolate thimble cake. It's heavenly!

Dining at River Café - An Extraordinary Experience

There's no doubt about it - dining at River Café is an extraordinary experience. From the moment you step through the door until long after your meal has ended, you'll be treated like royalty. If you're looking for a truly special dining experience in Calgary, then this is certainly the place for you!
