Who knew we would find great food along with a charming atmosphere tucked into the town of Yuma? Both entrees we tried, apricot salmon & the mustard crusted tofu were well prepared. Service was attentive. The weakest part of the meal was the flourless chocolate torte, which was a little dry. It went down just fine, however, with the side... More

Wow-what a surprise. Stopped for dinner after reading Trip Advisor reviews in this totally unassuming restaurant. Beautiful inside,but small, lots of seating on the patio (thankful for the heaters that took off the chill). Food was AMAZING as was the service. The bruschetta was delicate and the olive tampinade was simply divine. The shrimp and pasta with white wine garlic... More

Everyone in Yuma agrees the River City serves the best food in town. During the summer the inside of the restaurant is a bit small, but from October to May the great outdoor dining is incredible. Fish dishes are absolutely the best, especially the halibut. Once the leg of lamb I had there was just terrific! Also, of great importance... More

Great spot with lots of outdoor dining options. Professionally-operated by a lady-restuaruanteur who really knows what she is doing. Surprisingly large choice of entrees, all very tasty.

To begin with I thought the service here was excellent. The owner seated us and stopped by a couple of times. All the wait staff was friendly and efficient. We sat outside and the atmosphere was wonderful. I got the shrimp and scallops which were excellent. My wife got the Pad Thai which she thought was a little heavy with... More

Easy to find. On street parking is plentiful. Atmosphere is relaxed. Wait staff is funny and kind. Food is fantastic. Also it's quiet, no pounding music playing in the background.

Enjoyed a very nice dinner. I had the seafood pasta dish and it was great. Plenty of seafood and seasoned very well. My husband had a steak and he said it was cooked just right and very tender. We both had spinach salads before the main course and they were pretty and tasty. All in All it was a great... More

From beginning to end the food was amazing. Seafood, steak, and pasta dishes all had great flavor. Sat outside on the patio, perfect temperature and great ambience. Service was top notch.

Do not be fooled by the outward appearance of this establishment. Although it is not overly large, it is huge with personality and atmosphere. This is a place I like to take out of town guest to show them that Yuma really does have fine dining options.
