Great Place

Great Mexican food. Fun atmosphere. Lots of food. We really love this place and my relatives who are locals eat here often. If you are in the Riviera and like Mexican, then you gotta stop here. I'm gluten-free and they have many items that are naturally without flour.

Beach and surf decor put you in the fun mood for wonderful Mexican food. Yes it's a locals place but staff welcomes everyone with great service. Family friendly - fish aquariums interest the kids and Sangria and margaritas add to the parent fun. Fish tacos and entrees are great.

I have now visited on many occasions usually with family or friends, if you are a large party I would advise making a reservation to avoid a wait. A typical wait without a reservation has been about 20 minutes, there is a waiting area with space heaters where you can enjoy a drink whilst eating tortilla chips and the good... More

We like the casual beach feel here and the patio area. Sometimes they have a guitar player too. They offer excellent seafood selections. Prepare to wait for a table-it's a local favorite at reasonable prices.

We had dinner here and had a tough time deciding what to order, lots of good choices on the menu. I ended up with a papaya chicken salad, which had a delicious dressing. My husband had fish tacos and thought they were tasty, although not as good as street tacos though. The noise level was very loud when we entered.... More

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. Complimentary quesadillas were offered during our wait - a nice touch. We were... More

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!
