amazing service and food.

Great atmosphere, service and food. Went back for our last dinner there. The owner's son came table-side and shared a great bottle of tequila. We spent 3 hours there for a great dining experience.

I recently visited the Riviera Grill with 6 other people. We went on the recommendation of one of our party who had eaten here before. The atmosphere is nice. There was a singer/guitarist who we all enjoyed listening to. The food was delicious! No one had a complaint. The service was also very good.

Being frequent visitors to Nuevo, we have often passed by the restaurant but never considered it a choice for dinner. What prompted the choice was we attended a party where it was catered by Riviera, which was really good. So we went here for dinner and enjoyed it very much. Inside is a very nice atmosphere with live music. A... More

We found Riviera Grill by just driving around the area it looked not too fancy but very welcoming. You might want to make reservations for a large group. Our food was good service was good and you will get a show if you order a Mexican Coffee.

This is our 4th dinner experience and it was not disappointing. Did have reservations, however others did not and did not seem to be a problem. Both of us had the coconut shrimp and it was fabulous. Served with mashed potatoes and vegetable. Both needed salt and pepper which you have to ask for. Reason I only gave it 4... More

We have been going to Rivera Grill since November 2012, we have recommended it many times and we looked forward to returning on this trip! As always the atmosphere is very nice, many of the same staff still work at Rivera Grill, in fact Eustaquio (I believe that is correct) served us once again, he is very professional and that...

This restaurant was recommended by people at our resort and it did not disappoint. Outside seating in a tropical setting was very nice and the food was very good and reasonably priced. We ordered the guacamole as an appetizer for the two of us and there was enough four people. It was excellent as was our meal. I thought the... More

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
