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

Friends recommended this restaurant to a visitor from Japan, and the food was very good. The menu features seafood and Italian, and I went for the latter, with penne, broccoli, and chicken--asked them to 86 the roasted garlic, and they did. A quiet place on Tuesday lunch, and the service was excellent. The view of the Hudson was impressive, but... More

Expect to get a good meal, a bit pricey at times but don't expect too much of a view of the Hudson River. The best views are of the adjacent parking lot. There is also a market within the same building as the restaurant. Bar looks interesting although we have never sat or been served there. Weekends sometimes attract bikers.
