Serves meat, vegan options available. Try the mustard encrusted tofu and the coconut curry. One of few places in a city that is otherwise not veg-friendly.

Hidden Gem - Edit

This place is adorable and the blackened tofu was awesome. It was spicy and very filling, I couldn’t finish it. The tomato bisque soup was fresh and yummy too! Sit on the patio if weather permits.

Pros: Vegan options marked , Upscale feel , Great ambiance

Cons: a little pricey but worth it

Great service, amazing vegan options - Edit

Before traveling to Yuma to visit my grandparents, I did my vegan homework and knew that I had to make a stop at the River City Grill! Rated as one of the only non-chain restaurants with sufficient vegan options in the area, RCG did not disappoint. Their blackened tofu dish was incredible, and gave a really authentic taste to the meal. Our server was wonderful and knowledgeable, and my meat-lovin' grandparents enjoyed their meals as well!

Pros: clearly labeled vegan options, great service , lovely outdoor seating

Mixed Review - Edit

I liked the place as soon as I walked in...small intimate, great outside patio.
The service was slow but this was not a fast food place..."Fine dining" read it's sign. My husband and I always share a meal as we did here. The Spring Rolls were by far the best I've ever tasted! You get four in a serving, plenty to share as an appetizer. Our main dish was the Mustard Encrusted Tofu. The tofu was too thick and only encrusted on one side. As this isn't an exclusive vegetarian/vegan restaurant we realize that most chefs don't have a clue on how to use tofu! I probably won't return, especially since we will only be here a week and it was expensive!

Pros: Setting, Spring Rolls

Cons: Slow service, Tofu not cooked, Expensive

great lunch - Edit

This is a delightful restaurant in an otherwise vegan deficient city. We had a great lunch by combining the Asian lunch salad with the hummus appetizer. It was delicious and quite filling. As a previous reviewer remarked, the only vegan entrees are on the dinner menu, and most of them were spicy. Since we are never in Yuma for dinner, we were happy to find this combination. Very friendly service, and yes, a little pricey, but worth the price.

Not a place for lunch - Edit

I was so excited to find a place in Yuma with vegan options. The only problem is I was hoping to have lunch options. The menu is very pricey for a bar and grill type place. There are several vegan entrees, the problem is they each cost $17. On the lunch menu there are cheaper options for meat eaters but if you want something vegan you have to order off the dinner menu. I ended up getting the hummus and the spring rolls which were both delicious. The hummus was thick and crumbly but moist, not like the goopy dip that I'm used to. It was verrrry good and I liked the consistency of it. The spring rolls were delicious too. The waitress was awesome. Very friendly and helpful, however the proprietor looked us up and down like we weren't good enough for her restaurant. I wanted to leave, but my group had already ordered drinks. The appetizers were wonderful, but I probably wouldn't go back.

Pros: Good food, Good service

Cons: Overpriced, Snooty owner, No vegan lunch items

Pricey but good service - Edit

I really liked the restaurant staff. They were very friendly and helpful. I ordered vegetarian spring rolls which were tasty but ordinary. For my entree I ordered the vegan tofu pad thai. It was not very impressive for the cost of the dish. The portion was more than adequate though. As far as the ambiance, I liked the little candle lamps they had on each table...added a little charm.

Very tasty surprise - Edit

These folks put the YUM in Yuma! Spouse and I made our annual visit to see family, expecting the usual (desperate searches for edible food when Nature's Express is closed). After checking Happy Cow, we decided to try River City Grill. We had a fantastic dinner and the service was awesome. Small and intimate, with great ambience and decor -- more than once I said "I don't even feel like we're in Yuma!" I started with a great "Asian" salad and then had the tofu and black bean entree. Both were outstanding. Great presentation, excellent seasoning. Spouse is a carnivore and enjoyed his dinner very much. I would go back there happily! If it had been open on Thanksgiving, we'd have definitely gone there. It makes the food wasteland that is Yuma a much tastier place. Thank you, River City Grill!

Pros: Great service, Excellent food, Artful

Only menu in town with word "vegan" on it. - Edit

Not only place with vegan entrees (try India House on 20th block of 4th AVE).

It is pricey but good food.

Pros: Blackened Tofu is good., Ambience (in short supply in yuma), The word "vegan" is printed on the menu

Cons: pricey, limited seating, in Yuma
