Riva used to be a fine dining place in the past. Not so anymore, well the food is ok but so are hundreds of places in Jakarta. Unfortunately they have now turned it into a mix of a sports bar, night club, disco etcetc place. It is totally impossible to have a normal conversation inside the restaurant as the decibels...

I came here twice, the first time when it was headed by the French Chef and the second time when it's been merged with the Bar and led by Chef Deden. I have nothing bad to say on my first visit. Le Mille Feuille was really mouth watering. My second visit was just good. The Scallop Risotto was perfect (appetizer)... More

Riva has long been a well established French restaurant in Jakarta, regularly reviewed and awarded throughout the years. We decided to visit it recently treat ourselves following some good news. I reserved online, but didn't receive an answer by mail, so I had to call to find out about our reservation, which was immediately confirmed. I had asked for a... More

The new Riva combined the old 1 with Stix (the closed down steakhouse) & the ambience was nice, especially with an outdoor area facing the swimming pool. Service was friendly & professional but sometimes the server was m.i.a. (missing-in-action) even though there were only a few of us there. Food & drinks ranged from the standard to pretty good variety... More

Had been to the old Riva a number of times, generally had a very good meal there. In some ways, I prefer this one. Their new menu is simpler, but they do everything well. This is not "excellent" in the sense of unusual dishes / amazing ingredients etc. But the food that they make was all excellently done; no complaints... More

Ok, so I haven't really been to the one before the major renovation, hence cannot really speak on behalf of other people that have and can't really make the comparison. But, I tried various menus during my last visit thanks to my job. Among those I tried were: Mediterranean seafood, French onion soup, sirloin steak with diamond potato and baby... More

Riva under their previous talented chef "GM" was one of the best of French Fine Dining in Jakarta. Their renovation last year drew curiosity if they can revive the reputation or not. Because they have special promotion for the member of hotel's gym, I decided to give a try. They still maintain the French's touch by providing tomato soup as... More

I went there with a group of friends for dinner. The service is really good - the Manager who came for our orders could explain menu very well. The taste of food is really delicious from the appetizer to the main courses and the desserts. And the top at the end dont forget to ask Le souffle au Gran MArnier
