Incredible Pleasant Surprise

I am a very young 83 years old who has spent most of my life in a sophisticated industry (Entertainment). I say this only for the purpose of letting you know that I have been everywhere and have done everything.\r \r This afterrnoon, my granddaughter (very sophisticated 26 year old who has a Masters Degree in Public Administration and whom most guys would consider to be ""hot"") and I went to lunch. When I asked her ... view more

Too much hype -- NO substance!!!

This place is supposed to be a gem in the neighborhood. Ouch!! What a total bad experience. The food was totally forgettable -- those roast lambs were cut terribly (can I say butchered) and more importantly had no flavor at all -- and at $17.99!!!! They can not even give you a small plate for the stale bread, my party of four ended up eating on the napkin. Guys, save your money and go somewhere else!! Full of hype an... view more

This place is amazing! Everything that i have ordered is so good so it makes it hard to order something different because what i had the time before was so good! There's a parking lot or street parking so very convenient! The service there is absolutely astounding, the busboy has my drink for me before i have even sat down (call me predictable i guess) and the waitresses there are very friendly, one of them is the ow... view more

Too Expensive!!

The best thing I can say about this place is the Busboy & the French Onion Soup. He is always quick to refill your drink, although he is a bit hyper, running around franticly. The prices are way too high and they will not let you substitute anything on the menu. Once I wasn't sure if I would like the kind of soup they had, and I asked if I could have a tatse of it before I ordered it. Nope! They had some lame reason ... view more

Favorite place for Sunday Lunch

Riverside Cafe is a tiny place in Burbank with great food! I have been visiting it for almost every Sunday for the past 3 years. The food is great. I recomend the egg salad sandwich or the eggs benedict. I have become a regular and have made friends with most of the other patrons. Its a great place to bring your dog read the paper and have a great relaxing lunch or breakfast. I've been there for dinner and the food i... view more

HATED IT!!!!!!

I wish I could give negative stars!!!! Don't let looks fool you. It may be cute on the outside, but the inside is horrible. Do NOT eat here, especially for lunch!!! The service was super slow. The two ladies stopped their conversation in the kitchen, looked at us and then continued on. We stared at them for at least 5 minutes before ordering. Let's just say this place is NOT cheap!!! It was $11.75 for a french onion ... view more

Love this place!

Great food, awesome service and you can bring your own wine (No corkage!) My girlfriend and I had an awesome meal there last night. Sat out on the deck and had a nice slow relaxing dinner. The server told us the cook was slow ahead of time so we just relaxed with a bottle of wine. It was perfect. Will be returning soon

Great Simple Food, Fabulous Service

My friends and I eat at this charming (if somewhat dilapidated!) little gem of a restaurant at least once a month and we all agree the food rocks. And to respond to one of the other reviews I just read below, so does the service - even the newer young waitress who has joined the team within the past year is great although she's not as polished as co-owner Paula. Before we even sit down, they've bounded out the door t... view more

darn good food

My friend makes me come here all the time. I oblige... We always have to order the artichoke appetizer with the garlic mayo, and the goat cheese and tomato appetizer with vinaigrette, they are both terrific. Kind of wish you didn't have to eat on plastic tables and chairs, oh well.

Stumbled across a gem

My girlfriend and I were looking for some place to have a quick bite. We were very pleasantly surprised by this place. It has exceptionally good food, at a great price, without any pretensions. The informal nature of this restaurant was very appealing. The service was excellent, both in terms of friendliness and efficiency. I had the lamb with mint sauce, and that was one the best lamb meals I've had. The lamb was pe... view more
