The waiters we had were the best. Friendly and joking. Food varied a great deal from ordinary to terrific. We had a large group of 8 and they worked with us on separate checks. Price was not real bad. Portions were large.

This was our first visit to the Riviera Grill. It was recommended by someone from our hotel. I needed a break from the usual Mexican fare we had been eating for a week. I ordered the Lasagna with bolognese sauce. It was absolutely delicious, and tasted exactly as it had when eating in Florence, Italy. My fellow travelers had the... More

I have been to Riviera Grill several times over the last few years and have ever been disappointed. Yesterday evening we visited again and Guido provided another wonderful experience. Started with guacamole and salsa and chips. Salsa was fresh and really good. The guacamole was delicious and the presentation charming. The margueritas were amazing! The entree specials we are still... More

We have had previous experiences that were favorable at this restaurant. This visit was terrible!! The service was slow and confused (we had other tables food delivered to us several times that evening). My wife ordered the tuna and she could not cut it, It was described as sashimi quality-NOT!. The flan was overcooked and dry. Flan should have a... More

Nice atmosphere and we enjoyed the music food was fine. Located on the "main drag" across from the hotels and condos.

This was recommended by a 'yatchy' who had been in the area for 11 years. It is a bit of a walk from the Paradise Resort and marina and we cabbed it back. We walked in with out a reservation armed with a toursit coupon for 10% off. First they put us in back above the kitchen and it was... More

Being our first time in Nuevo Vallarta we were not familiar with what was in the area. My brother-in-law was handed a discount coupon for the Riviera Grill so we decided to go for supper. It was well within walking distance and what a pleasant surprise it was! Tables within a small jungle! Table areas had a roof covering them;... More
