Dining at Riverwoods

Dining at RiverWoods — Our Philosophy

Enjoying a meal at RiverWoods is about more than the outstanding chef prepared food. It’s a place where the dining staff knows your name and what you like. It’s a chance to socialize and meet new people. Our chefs are professionally trained in culinary skills and have many years experience in preparing fine dining menu items. Our staff is also experienced in creating meals for special occasions for our residents and their guests, such as the Jingle Bell Brunch on Christmas Eve, birthday dinners, and many other events. We use fresh herbs from our own gardens and order from local vendors when possible.

A sample for each season

The RiverWoods culinary team designs a new series of menus for each season and for each month. Every day residents may choose from ten unique entrée selections (always including a fish, meat and vegetarian option) as well as two house made soups, fresh vegetable and starch options. We prepare selections to accommodate individual dietary requirement (including gluten free). RiverWoods also offers a variety of home baked dessert selections prepared in our on-site bakery, coupled with fresh fruit compotes, a selection of ice creams, sherberts and sorbets.
