After more than 30 years dining and visiting Minneapolis neighborhoods, this was our first time in the "Riverside" area fo 38th St and 42nd Ave. Went to a movie there and was headed to another restaurant when we spotted the Riverside Cafe & Wine Bar...More

Great wine bar with excellent food and desserts. I had the UN-Oaked whites which included 4 wines, all of which I loved. Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Blanc Sec and Chardonnay in small glasses which probably were equal to a glass of wine. Normally $13 but...More

My wife and I live in the area and although we really want to like this place we really can't. The prices are high and the food quality is average at best. There's nothing special, no specialty, nothing to make you want to come back....More

This is a nice neighborhood wine bar and restaurant. We had an early dinner. I had the beet salad with chicken breast. My husband had the butternut squash and roasted pear soup. They were both good, but the salad was overdressed. It would have been...More

So relaxing in a quiet neighborhood. Sit outside in summer for nature and a pleasant breeze or inside n the winter for a cozy escape. The wine is phenomenal and so is the food and the service! Beats any restaurant in the neighborhood.
