Had a fantastic birthday dinner there last night. The house made ricotta gnocchi was the best I've had. Great views, atmosphere and service. Looking forward to my next visit.

We loved everything about this place. It is one of the best restaurants in Kingston, top 3 restaurants in Kingston definitely. The location is very historical obviously from the name located in an old Mill. The restaurant is very clean, the service is second to none. Talking about the service, it is not rushed, there is a good amount of... More

attended a group business dinner here so the menu choice was fixed at 3 courses: soup or salad; fish,beef or chicken entree; 2 dessert choices . The cream of parsnip soup was quite bland and needed some spicing up. The steak was done "medium" and served on a bed of mashed potatoes and spinach...not fancy, but tasty. You can never... More

Had lunch today and sent the first choice back, pasta very bland. Second choice was a chicken wrap which was ok but would not order it again. Several of the people had the baby beef liver and loved it.

Food was excellent, very well prepared and presented. Nice atmosphere. I've also been to a wedding here where the food was absolutely amazing and each course brought out with perfect timing. If you're looking for fine dining, this is it.

I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times over the past several months. The first time, I ordered Bison Ricotta Ravioli. This is my favorite dish of all that I have ordered at this restaurant. It included parsnips in the sauce which I love and the ricotta was so flavorful and creamy. It was hard to top this first experience.... More

We had our wedding at River Mill a few weeks ago, we used the main space and had around 40 guests. The space was nicely decorated, and it was a very great atmosphere for our small intimate wedding. The staff were incredibly accommodating, wonderful and easy to work with. The food was excellent and the service was just as good,... More

Attended a business luncheon - staff were very attentive and the food quality was very good and portion appropriate. The restaurant itself is beauitiful and tastefully decorated, was definitely not disappointed with the promise of a high end dining experience in Kingston. I highly recommend the River Mill for business luncheons.
