The soup was excellent but I was very disappointed with the gyro meat. I have high expectations for gyros because I fell in love with them on the streets of Europe. I will say all the produce was fresh and the pita bread was also fresh. I recommend you find a different source for your lamb.

We had the tomato pesto panini sandwich with butternut soup. Food was very good. Service also very good. The restaurant was very clean.

We wanted to try something different for lunch and remembered seeing this place on Blanco. The reuben that I had was pretty good and the portions were smaller than I prefer but much better for me. We were able to sit outside and that was nice. We would definitely go back.

I came for a late lunch with a friend, for a small establishment lots of salad choices and sandwich offerings. Service was friendly and fast. Tables inside and out. I would come again.

Good sandwiches, salads, and soup. Very small family owned bistro. Fills quickly. Outside seating available, if weather permits.

Great addition to a little strip center situated in the woods along Blanco Road inside of Loop 1604. The lunch hour was notably busy with a line just inside the door. Not much in the way of directions such as an "Order Here" sign which can be tacky looking, so we just followed the line as it passed along side... More

Went for lunch here with my wife. We both had the I/2 sandwich combos. Mine was delicious and freshly prepared. My only constructive comment is that this place is small and a bit tight, and the day we went it was pretty full and loud; I think the food quality had something to do with it. I'd go again, but...

It's a small homey feeling restaurant. I really like the decor inside! I had their Butternut Squash soup and Applewood ciabatta sandwich. The Butternut Squash soup was AMAZING! Definitely recommend trying it, it is a bit sweet though and thick, so I could see some people being put off by it. The Applewood sandwich was delicious! Overall a very great... More

I've been to the River Tree Bistro several times and the food has always been excellent. I went there last Friday and had the half a sandwich & soup combo. I had the Ruben Pannini and the soup was a corn chowder. The Ruben was excellent and the soup was excellent also. I highly recommend this restaurant. However it gets... More

I'm sure it is a great place for dinner too, but since I live out of town, have only tried lunch - several times - and it is always delicious. Soups are divine, the Roasted Butternut Squash soup is velvety smooth; and salads are colorful and tasty. My favorite (right now) is the Asian Chop Salad: chopped cabbage and romaine... More
