It makes me sick to imagine the waste of the duck on this menu. And that is just the beginning. I very much so wish we had gone to Juicy Lucy's next door. Reviews had me wondering about this place though. I love daring menu's and combinations. The duck sounded like just that and it could have nailed it, but... More

Went for dinner with a group of 10 friends and had a great meal. The food was excellent and the service was terrific. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Well prepared, interesting menu in at reasonable prices in a nice setting. What more do you need in a restaurant.

We've been to Glenwood Springs a handful of times and have yet to find a great restaurant. We aren't difficult people to please. We enjoy researching and finding local favorite restaurants. Service was pleasant but the food was nothing special especially for what they were charging. The $16 Beef Stroganoff was tasteless. The $13 Chicago Hot Beef sandwich was bland... More

This is our favorite place to meet friends for happy hour and a relaxing dinner. Friendly staff and delicious locally sourced food. Great happy hour deal with appetizers. Love the Bridge salad and fish of the moment.

We come to Glenwood for the food, plain and simple. Two blocks of world class cuisine in half a dozen restaurants, of which the Riviera has become our fsvorite. We noticed a few low reviews and showed up to give them a chance but were, frankly, expecting to be disappointed. We did notice there werent many diners for a Friday... More

The first time we dined at the Rivera was because our hotel employees raved about it. It was crowded and service was slow and the food was ok. We really didn't think the food was worth the price and didn't think we'd ever return. Fast track a year later, we arrive to Glenwood Springs Christmas Eve and most restaurants were... More

you would think that this restaurant based on its' competition would get a clue. food is just not really exiting enough to make you want to return. Bar area lacks atmosphere.

Service was horrible as well as the food. The ribeye steak was like a breakfast steak and the grilled scallops were tasteless. None of the food had any seasoning. Service was extremely slow and unfriendly. Don't go here!!!!! The worst meal I can remember in a long time!

We went for a drink and ended up ordering some apps because the Happy Hour was such a great deal. Good food and drinks!

We we're driving to Grand Junction from Denver, and just happened on this place. It was packed but they worked us in fairly quickly. The food was delicious. We will be back.
