Great service, good food

This restaurant is dedicated to making your visit a great one. My son and I went on a Saturday night - 7 pm. We were told it could be about 35 min wait so took a seat on their outdoor patio - complete with outdoor patio heaters.

I found Riviera Mexican Grill during my visit to Redondo Beach. What a fantastic find! I used navigation and still overshot the place. It's in an area with lots of shopping and dining nearby. It's also set back off the road just a bit. The atmosphere both inside and outside is fun, relaxing and friendly. The staff is fast, very... More

They are a little hard to find in a compact are of shops. A little parking behind them. The lunch specials were well prepared and we enjoyed a sunny family get together. My carnitas had a great sauce and left no room for dessert. Moderate prices.

I was surprised that the patio space was right in the middle of the parking lot, but it actually works. They have it separated so that you don't feel like you are in the parking lot, so it shouldn't have been a worry. They have very good salsa and margaritas (which is how I usually judge Mexican restaurants). We have... More

The burritos are not only delicious but also huge. I have tried the chicken and the carne asada burritos and in both cases the quality of the meat was great. They also have fantastic fish tacos!

After a long luxurious afternoon of window shopping and strolling around Redondo's adorable Riviera Village, I was ready for some vittles of the Mexican kind. Going on a recommendation of Kim, the lovely owner of Gus Vintage Goods, I headed over to Riviera Mexican Grill hoping for some muy BUENO Mexican food. Oh boy...was I in for a treat! This... More

I live in Europe and still come here at least ten times a year. The asada soft tacos and the carnitas are my favorite. The salsa is always so fresh and delicious. I always get the Zuni salad instead of rice to make the meal lighter. We have lots of picky eaters in our big family, and everyone has multiple... More

Great atmosphere. Unique place. Great service. Clean restaurant but I just wasnt amazed by the food. I got the works burrito. The presentation was great. It looked amazing. But the flavor was bland. I don't know why because the ingredients looked fresh but there was something that just didn't fit. The salsa was good but I have had better. In... More

The food is excellent and goes beyond the usual offerings of most So Cal Mexican eateries. There is probably nothing on the menu that you would be disappointed with. My favorite is the mole sauce. It is a bit spicy, but compliments chicken enchiladas or burritos very nicely. It also lends a nice taste to the shrimp relleno. The staff... More

My retiree group has been eating lunch here for years. The decor is beach and surf oriented. The food is excellent, served hot and attractively plated. The lobster quasadillo (on the lunch specials menu) and fish tacos are favorites. I also like the carnitas. Entrees generally come with two sides, I go for the "Zuni" salad which is like an... More
