I don't know if using a Travelzoo coupon makes a difference, but the service was unremarkable; wait time between app and entree was about 45 minutes, and it was difficult to get anyone's eye to ask questions. The steak was served well done (no pink),...More

Cool River is lovely and the atmosphere is pleasant and soothing. Happy hour is busy with lots of young professionals who work in the DTC area. Their menu is diverse and everything I have had there is very good.

Just top to bottom a mediocre place -- would be OK but it is far too pricey for the value you get -- they do make a decent cocktail but that's about it
