Nice lunch on a nice spring day.

We weren’t able to get a window view, but did get a good seat with a little peek at the river. Lunch was very nice, we split buffalo mozzarella with grilled veggies for an appetizer. I had crab/fish cakes with salad and “pizza” bread. I think it was just the bread on the table, but nice. My... read more

Beautiful setting along the Hudson River. Excellent service from a courteous, knowledgeable staff. We would go back again.

Best restaurant in the area!! The food is consistently excellent, And the service is perfect! You never want for anything, and at the same time the staff is not hovering or constantly interrupting the conversation. They just do a great job!! In warm weather there is nice outside seating and year round the dinning room offers grand views of the... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. The food is consistently good and there is always something new on the menu. The seafood is fresh and always has seasonal offerings. In good weather, there is an outside dining area. The family owned restaurant gives special attention not just to the dishes but to the diners.

Nice homey feel to restaurant. Waitstaff was excellent. Friendly but not overly so and quite effecient and knowledgable. Mushroom soup to die for. Clams casino seemed fishy. Thai fish stew excellent as was the rack of lamb. Salads included with entree. Very fair price.

We go to Riverview almost every week. It is just great. The food ranges from pretty good to excellent and the service is always friendly and efficient. Lori and Jimmy Ely, the owners, have a very well trained staff and are always most welcoming themselves. We've been going here for years and will keep on going! We've eaten in restaurants... More

We went up to the Riverview today - a Tuesday - for lunch, forgetting that this is Restaurant Week in the region, and all restaurants are serving specials. The place was crowded, but since we got there a bit early we did manage to snag a table with a view. To appreciate the view, one has to ignore the parking... More

We were visiting the Hudson Valley and friends took us to the Riverview Restaurant. We were taken to our table immediately, and asked if we wanted something to drink. The menu made it difficult to order. There were so many good things to choose from. We finally made our decision and ordered. When the food arrived it not only looked... More

My husband and I left Connecticut for a ride along the Hudson River to view the beautiful foliage. Glorious day of bright sun and puffy clouds. Arrived in Cold Spring NY at 12:30. Stopped at the Depot where we had eaten before and tried to find something new. Checked Trip a Advisor and found Riverview. Decided to check it out.... More
