I went early to avoid the dinner rush and sat at the bar to eat dinner. The menu came quickly but then I must have waited at least 30 minutes for the waitress to come back while she stood at the end of the bar talking with a gentleman and seemed completely disinterested in providing service of any kind. I... More

Started with the beet salad, it was nicely presented, the beets were a bit under cooked and not as sweet as they should. The main dish was the daily special the Branzino. The fish was slightly over cooked but had great flavor and spics, The vegetables that came with it were cooked correctly and it had some nice cherry tomatoes.

Though the menu and atmosphere were more traditional than we usually prefer, the food was exceptionally good and the service was 5 star!

We enjoyed our dinner experience at Riviera Restaurant, although, curiously, the Italian restaurant has a very limited selection of Italian wines, and quite high wine prices. Large portions of delicious food, and terrific service.

We went right after work with a group for drinks and appetizers. We sat in the bar area, and were offered great drink and food specials. I had the chopped salad with chicken - very large portion and delicious. Wait staff courteous and accommodating. Would recommend.

The Riviera has had numerous owners over the past 10 years but the folks now in charge finally have it right. Their latest remodel resulted in an elegant but inviting interior with comfy chairs and plenty of space between tables. This place just seems to have a good vibe to us. There is live music in the bar on weekends.... More

Fresh vegetables, fresh seafood, fresh bread -- if you're looking for REAL food with an Italian/French accent, this is the place. Service is good, but the food is the draw. They were able to take our order, prepare and present many courses and get us on our way in a little over an hour. There also appeared to be a... More

Food is correct, enough reference on the wine list, the service is ok overall rating is average one remark for the US food trend-setter: garlic does marry well with mashed potatoes; thyme or rosemary, olive oil or nutmeg do!
