The Riva, in the Intercontinental, is hands down, the best steak in the city. The atmosphere is elegant, upscale, modern yet comfortable. It is quiet, intimate, lights dimmed, soft music. The service is outstanding, from the greeting all the way to the Goodnight. The menu is top notch, beef quality is the best. The wine list is well rounded, the... More

After a couple of weeks in Suzhou, decided that I needed a good steak. Read the reviews on Trip Advisor. They were right. Good steak, good service. Pricey, steaks start at about RMB 300 and go up from there.

The steak and other courses were all pleasant surprises. I just couldn't believe I was in Suzhou. Our server Theresa made exceptional recommendations. The entire staff were very nice also. The ribeye and sirloin were cooked to perfection. The marbling on the ribeye was mouthwatering.
