Great Restaurant!

We loved this restaurant! The food was delicious and the environment was great! From the outside you are not sure if you should stop in, but please do go in! We were very happy we stopped at the Riviera Grill for dinner. (This was about a 15-20 minute walk from Paradise Village.)

We were disappointed because this restaurant was highly recommended by a frequent traveler to the area. The shrimp was mushy..not sure if it was not cooked properly or not fresh. And, my husband and I ordered two different shrimp preparations that were identical in appearance and taste. We also found this to be one of the more expensive restaurants in... More

This restaurant has great service and food. Unfortunately, by the time we finished our meal, we had lots of mosquito bites. Even after being sprayed with OFF Mosquito repellent, we still became a buffet for those darn insect.

We have walked past Riviera Grill many times without stopping to eat. This year we decided to stop in and were not dismayed. The food presentation was of high caliber. I had the Coconut Shrimp served on a bed of mashed potatoes with coconut milk- yum!!!! Dessert was excellent. Be sure to add this to your next trip.

We've been there several times and it was good. Last night the bottom fell out. We had 4 different selections and they were all below par. Yikes.

This is a lovely restaurant with very good food. The staff was excellent and so friendly. The owner was a very nice man who made a point of talking to us before we left the restaurant. I definitely recommend this restaurant for a pleasant night out.

Our meals were delicious and the presentation was that of an upscale eatery. Free margs with coupon (that they give you at the door!)

Absolutely lovely restaurant. The atmosphere is as if you are sitting in the jungle. Live music..loved everything about it. The food was fantastic. I ordered one of the specials, Mahi Mahi in a cilantro cream on a roasted portabello mushroom. It was served to me on a hot tile. Great presentation. It didn't look like a lot of food, but... More

This was our third visit to Riviera Grill. The Tuna steak was fabulous as usual. The atmosphere is wonderful and the outdoor ambiance splendid. The service was very good and the presentation is excellent.
