Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Called in while passing through. Great selection of breakfasts available. Ordered 2 full breakfasts for ourselves and pancakes for the little one. Staff are very friendly and mannerly nothing seems to be a problem. Lovely cosy place. Will definitely be back.

We ate in Riverfront this evening. A group of 15 visiting the area. From our initial communication with Jimmy to the warm welcome, excellent food and service our experience was faultless. This restaurant is an exemplar for quality, value and genuine “niceness” Thank you Tommy...and staff.More

Stopped off at the riverfront on the way home from the marble arch caves on father'sday, and were welcomed by very pleasant staff who showed us to our seats. I would highly recommend the Riverfront, the food was gorgeous and the staff were excellent, and...what I thought was so nice of them was at the end of our meal they gave out lotto tickets for the euro millions to the fathers for fathers day which I thought was a lovely gesture. I would definitely go back to the riverfront wonderful 👏More

Been going here for years and wanted to celebrate a birthday with family. It started well, we arrived at 7.30, promptly seated and served. Waiter and waitress were lovely. Food was ok but not as good as before. Then it went rapidly downhill. the incredibly...rude barlady slammed cursed and turned other customers away just after 8. Mid way through our mains she turned up all the lights and turned off the music. We literally had to beg for desserts which were then slammed on the table by the manager.we were prepared to spend money and have some drinks afterwards. We werent even asked if we wanted tea or coffee before bill was slammed in the table while bar lady groaned and complained about her boss for all to hear. We left at 9.25 and had to be let out of a locked front door. After nearly 20 years of visiting the riverfront, where Jimmy and Antoinette have always been welcoming. We will never darken the door again whilst their current management run customers out. Sad to see. You used to have such a lovely team out front. Your bar "lady" is abhorrent.More

Stopped for lunch when passing through virginia based on what I thought good reviews. Can safely say one of the worst pub lunches I have expeirienced !! My wife & I were sat down to a table for two. Looking around the pub & decor...well is very odd to say the least also the atmosphere - some locals in enjoying there few lunchtime pints but definitely got the feeling - who are these outsiders !! Young waitress took our order, no personality at all & had the impression she did not want to be there. Drinks were not good quality & the food a pasta dish that was to the point inedible & flavourless for me. Had the feeling made the night before & microwaved ,- came out way too quick.. The sambo my wife ordered was okay bit thrown together . Paid the bill which at least compared to Dublin was cheap & left. Would not darken the door again 😂More

Recently celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday with dinner at The Riverfront. Lovely restaurant with amazing food. Our server, Kiara was friendly and professional. When it came time for birthday cake, all of the staff came and sang. Great spot, definitely worth a visit!!!
