The food is very high end, so if you are looking for something fancy this is a good bet. The food was very good and the staff was lovely.

Waiter was awesome and the food was very different and very local. It was also very tasty. Set in a quiet courage in a park this restaurant had an amazing location as well.

The River Café is an excellent restaurant across the river from the condo, you can see it from the patio.

Excellent dining at this rustic local fresh food focused restaurant located in the centre of Prince's Island Park. Walking distance from the cottage. Get your picnic dinner catered for the summer evening Shakespeare in the Park performances, or cuddle up to the fire watching the snow fall outside on the trees.

The River Cafe is an attractive restaurant among a pretty Prince's Island. Walking here within Downtown Calgary is almost half the fun.

I dined here recently as part of a Business trip. This is a "Local and Sustainable" food place and it executes this well with very good food attractively presented. The wine list was interesting (albeit with a relatively limited selection of Canadian choices) and the service was friendly and attentive.

The River Cafe is not cheap, although it's sometimes hard to separate the factors of overall Calgary prices, the trendy factor, and a Loonie that is now worth more than the US Dollar. I would gladly come back as this is place I'd love to take Gayle and spend some quality date night time.
