It is a small wonder that the restaurant’s patio is a favourite with summer diners looking for maximum al fresco ambience. Protected from the hubbub of Jasper Avenue by the Marriott Hotel, Riverside Bistro’s spacious terrace is a world away from the bustling noises of the city centre. It’s the perfect restaurant for a date with someone special; just pull up to the door and enjoy valet parking.
On the Menu
The Riverside Bistro chefs match the view with some fine fare. For starters, there’s dishes like wild mushroom soup, which arrives with a selection of plump, juicy mushrooms. There’s also the indulgence of brie cheese in phyllo pastry; velvety smooth cheese wrapped in crisp pastry. Entrées like the Alberta steak in a peppercorn sauce, or the rack of lamb serve up rich taste, while those looking for subtler fare might opt for the fresh salmon or pasta dishes. A hearty wine list compliments any dining choice.
