3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2014

We ate there on a busy Saturday night. The starter salads were both exemplary, and the "club" size was certainly sufficient for us, and very good value. I had the lamb chops main which came with a spinach risotto. The lamb was fine but the risotto was completely inedible. It was much too dry and full of starch. I would... More

We had not eaten here for a couple of years due to a change in ownership and menu disappointment. Had dinner there last night, all 3 dinners were excellent and good service. We can strongly recommend them again.

No complaints about the food or service, just a bit on the pricey side for what it was...club size is on the small side, regular size ok but somewhat expensive.

Went here expecting to not spend a fortune, the food was good but I think is a little over priced. Server was very nice just think there is other options that might cost a little less in the area but if that isn't a worry, it's an alright place.

We had a fine meal here two years ago and came back for dinner on a Tuesday evening. We heard that it is now under new management since our last visit. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. A few of the items were good, including a martini and the mushroom soup. But the asparagus soup was inedible; we sent... More

Our service was so wonderful that it elevated an average meal. Don't get me wrong...the food was not bad, it was good. I only mean that it was not the best meal that we had on our trip--not an "outstanding" meal. The shrimp and grits were a treat because I can't get that where I live.

Read all the good reviews on TA, Pullman had a wait, and chose the Riveria. Got right in and after eating knew why. Shrimp and Grits were okay, nothing to write home about. Calamari appetizer was what one should expect ordering calamari in Colorado. The special soup was asparagus--server mentioned it was made with broth, not cream. She didn't mention... More

Rex, sorry we were not up to your standards that night. We usually don't consider taking care of customers and getting nice reviews, in response as a problem. Good luck, Safe travels Mike Mercatoris More

I gave the ranking of 4, based on five stars for their happy hour and three stars for their dinner. The happy hour here is excellent and highly recommended. Good drinks and the apps were very very good. Which is what got us thinking about dinner... Unfortunately, we found our dinner to be good-- not excellent. There were no specials... More

I enjoyed my experience and food at the riviera supper club, the only thing that was not great was the service. Maybe they were busy, but I felt we had to flag our server down and the ordering took a while and the food took a while, etc. But drinks were good, food quality and selection were good nad overall...
