"Akim made the whole night enjoyable. Great service with a great waiter. The views from inside of the Colorado River outside were beautiful. My wife and I appreciate the positive energy and the niceness of the staff. Akim is a great waiter I highly recommend him as your server. We had a 10 year Anniversary to remember. Thanks Rivers!"

"Rivers was WONDERFUL! Wakim was our waiter, the best we have ever had anywhere! HIs professionalism and detail was incredible! We talked about him all week end. We had dinner the next night at one of your "competitors", almost walked out to go back to Wakim! loved the cottage atmosphere and the white clean atmosphere, was wonderful. The food was fabulous, the new York was an excellent piece of meat.
Many thanks to you all for making a special evening so much more a precious memory!
We WILL be back.....In the mean time, take good care of Wakim, please let him know we appreciated all he did and his amazing professionalism.

"Everything we ordered was delicious! We had the lamb meatballs, shrimp Marsala, and vegetable lasagna. Only complaint I have is the menu didn't specify the lasagna didn't have noodles. Cocktails were also pleasing. Not only did everything taste good, it was presented very well. Service was amazing. Very attentive and sweet but not overbearing."

"We have eaten at Rivers several time, and we are never disappointed.
The food is very good, the prices are very reasonable and they are also very kid friendly and have god options in their kids menu.
The food is good, the service is great, the atmosphere is great and they have a great view.
I was slightly disappointed that they removed their mussels dish from the menu as it was absolutely amazing.

"We have dined at the Rivers Restaurant before and we were happy to dine there again, being as how they were the only major restaurant to be open over the Christmas holiday and that would also take a reservation. We dined at the Rivers Restaurant for both Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day dinner. The food and wine were excellent on both nights. On Christmas Eve, we sat in the dining room. It was extremely busy and a bit on the noisy side, which was to be expected, as this restaurant was handling ALL of the Christmas parties...etc. The portions were small but did not take note of this until the next evening. The next evening, we were sat in the bar. It was quieter then the night before. I ordered the same thing as the night before, as it was so excellent. This time, however, my portions were all significantly larger which made me wonder if I had been a bit slighted on the night before due to the heavy traffic of customers. The only annoying event that night was when the staff began working on their duties while we were still dining. Being as how we were in the bar, sitting at a table next to the bar, and they began tossing silverware into bins (to be wrapped in napkins) at this bar, all made for extremely loud clatter. We finally had to say something and they promptly removed this duty to the kitchen. We decided we would probably request the dining room only from now on. All in all, a very excellent restaurant where the food and wine are great and the staff are courteous. We will continue to go there every year like we do now."

"We were pleased to be able to have our Thanksgiving dinner at Rivers Restaurant this year. Service was a bit brusque, but I think the entire staff was in survival mode for this very busy night which had people waiting out the door for a table. We found our traditional thanksgiving meal to be delicious; I wish I could make turkey this moist and flavorful! It was a treat to have our Thanksgiving dinner here when we were away from home and I would definitely return if we find ourselves in Glenwood Springs again."

"Three of us had meals, two steaks and fish and chips. Served steaks with awesome mashed potatoes. Steaks were good cuts. The dinner rolls were different than any we had had before and were a delicious change of pace."

"All in all we were greatly disappointed. Our waitress was nice enough but not overly attentive. Maybe it was because the restaurant was understaffed. The food was ok but not anything to write about. It was kind of bland. So bottom line there are more restaurants to explore so probably would not go back unless there were some positive reviews. It would be good for outdoor dining and could be a neighborhood gem if some effort was put toward the food and service. Maybe it just wasn't a good night."
