Great little place in the heart of Frankfurt

Riz is a small venue with a limited menu, but the quality is good. It's a bit pricey, which is why I dropped a star from the review. I had the lamb rack which was beautifully cooked pink and a generous portion. There are plenty of wines to choose from including a few choices by the glass, but the... read more

Went with friends to this excellent and stylish place. Helpful staff who all speak super English and are willing to tolerate and humor bad German speaking skills. The menu is great with very good choices for game meats. Not too huge a selection to choose from, which I like. We were a party of 7 and between us we probably... More

The location is not spectacular, but rather modest and quite cosy. The food is certainly fantastic and deserves mentioning. However, the service is the downside of this establishment as it doesn't feel welcoming and respected. Nevertheless, they are attentive and knowledgable about the wine list but quite arrogant in the behavior. In addition, the when glasses are re-arranged or bottles... More

Have been there for a business lunch. Small place in the center of Frankfurt. Service and quality of dishes have been very good.

It is not very big nor is the menu. But he food and wine is great. I love the waiter with his own style, reminding me of the gentlemen of the 20s... If you are up for a nice night with food and wine: my wife, friends never have been disappointed in the Riz...

We had made a reservation for a Saturday night (9pm) with a very friendly host over the phone only hours before arrival (that there was availability at all surprised us!). We had heard quite a bit about the restaurant an decided to try it out. The Riz is situated in a quite little side street and very romantic. It has... More

We called ahead to make a booking; the phone was answered promptly and courteously. Not something I'd usually bother to mention, but really bad phone calls for reservations have been a dime a dozen of late. The competent service continued once we arrived, although the gentleman serving us was in a bit too much of a rush during peak hour... More

Riz is one of the undiscovered gems of Frankfurt. I will hopefully return. Perfect for groups for sophisticated adults and couples!

My sister and I ate here one night while visiting Frankfurt in early December. We did not have a reservation but were able to secure a table. I had a filet and it was good but have had better. My sister had the vegetarian dish and was disappointed.. Very bland. Expensive for what you get in my opinion.

We had the three course set menu. The portions were minute for the price but well put together. For example the starter was a few tiny slivers of raw trout for 16 euros. The absolute highlight was the chocolate desert as others have mentioned. If I lived in Frankfurt I would not be a regular. Its too expensive for what... More
