This place has the charm of an old time supper club, with a twist of a modern atmosphere. The wine flights were varied and their menu is filled with an eclectic mix of food items. We had the tuna tartare appetizer which was paired with a full bodied red - amazing! The owner and staff were friendly and made everyone... More

Stopped in for a drink and an app. The bartender was very knowledgeable, friendly and started us off right with making a great red wine recommendation. They also had wine flights - which was a fun way to taste around their extensive wine list. The atmosphere was vibrant on a friday night - smart casual. Don't miss this one in... More

The Riv finds the perfect balance between the familiar and the exotic. The items on the menu are recognizable (AKA not weird) but are presented in new, adventuresome, creative ways. It's safe experimentation. Fanciful flavors, festive presentations, comfortable atmosphere, pleasant waitstaff (Hi, Janey and Amanda!) and chefs who take a break from the action to come through and greet their... More

We had our annual Spouse's night for our local Kiwanis club at the Riviera and they did another spectacular job. Not only do they do a great job for a couple or small group but they did an outstanding job for our group of 30+. We plan on using them every year for this special night. Thanks to "The Riv"

Exceptional food, great beers and drinks, and wonderful people! I would highly recommend this place for going out for a nice meal, or to just hang out for a drink after work. Always a good time here.

to start, they offer wine flights where you get 3 or 4 different labels of the same varietal. The bar tender was very knowledgable and poured us tastes of others once she understood our tastes. This was a lot of fun. The owners visited with us as if we were regulars. Dinner consisted of steaks and salads perfectly prepared. The... More

The whole experience was a wow except for our main dish which was the Paella! The appetizers were awesome which consisted of calamari, mussels and while truffel fries. Wine list was great too. Service was good as well. Paella should not be a soup and that is what we good. Very bland with little taste. I have had paella in... More

Some of the best food in the area for sure in a really nicely done restaurant. Friendly staff, awesome wine list, (try the wine flights) and delicious well prepared food. The Riviera has been there for years and always good, but their make-over in recent years has proved to be outstanding. Kept the same great comfy feel but in a... More

So glad you enjoyed!!! You perfectly described what we are trying to accomplish at the Riv. A different atmosphere that pay's homage to it history as a "Supper Club" but casual enough that you can come in for some mid week happy hour. See You Soon Mike More
