Wonderful spot for a nutritious delicious breakfast and great expresso. Service is fast and friendly. Ok COVID practice in place.

This is a great place for breakfast and lunch. Sometimes there are people waiting outside the door for breakfast. The restaurant is always busy. Typical food but with an upscale twist but still reasonably priced for the area. A real keeper. They do takeout too.

My husband and I were in Dawson in September and stopped at Riverwest Bistro for lunch. The fish sandwich and egg/cheese croissant were outstanding! The fish was cooked perfectly and had a delicious sauce. The croissant was fresh and moist and the egg was cooked...to perfection, with wonderful flavour. We topped it off with hot chocolates, which brought it to a perfect meal! The cost was reasonable and the service, quick. Well worth the visit and impressed with what we received!More

We stopped by for a light lunch and did not regret it at all. Very friendly staff, good atmosphere, good products at fair prices. To be clearly recommended!

We had the chicken quesadilla and chicken bacon ranch. The quesadilla was tiny and the chicken bacon ranch had 3 tiny pieces of chicken and was basically lettuce and ranch dressing. It was definitely not worth the $10 each. They could have at least included...a side for that price. Just avoid this place as there are others in town that are better value. The service was not very good either.More

There is quite a good selection and the lady taking orders was quite helpful with my extensive allergy list. I was happy with the meal slightly made to order.

Hit this place for breakfast over a week friendly staff and good food followed by a walk along front street and the Yukon River

I had a double espresso and a cookie. Both were good but not outstanding. The Bistro’s best feature is its location on Front Street, with a nice view of the mountains on the other side of the river.
