Food expensive but delicious splurge

The staff was quick and courteous with our orders and questions. Food and wine was delicious. The salmon with pomegranate glaze! Though pricey it reflected the level of service and food.

Never before have I written a review where I have nothing positive to say. Well, they say there's a first time for everything... Last night my husband and I met two other couples for dinner at the Riverview. We began by ordering two bottles of wine and a cocktail, so clearly we were there to eat and enjoy. Then we... More

On a day trip a friend and I had lunch at Riverview. We arrived 15 minutes before lunch officially started at noon and the waitress (Renee?) was nice enough to seat us. We split a half bottle of rosé which was a perfect choice on a sweltering, summer day. I had the (lunch special) cavatelli with Andouille sausage. My friend... More

Great location but there is no skimping on the food. So many times you get a great location with views but sacrifice good food. Not so here they have both and both are excellent. Favorite restaurant in Cold Spring don't miss this one. Great seafood, pizza, pasta and a top burger. We sampled all and all was delicious. They should... More

As a local it is a weekly routine to either dine in or take out from Riverview. Lori and Jim are fantastic. The food is the best in town. I gurantee you'll enjoy your experience.

Four of us dined at Riverview on the outside deck overlooking the Hudson. It is a lovely setting. Please note that Wednesday nights are Pizza night and there is a very limited choice of regular entrees. There was no mention of Pizza Night on their website and though the two course offering was a good value, we were disappointed we... More

Spent a lovely spring day in Coldspring and capped it off with a great meal. I never order pasta but their rigatoni and sausage was amazing! Also, I drink a lot of water and I never had to ask for a refill. They serve butter along with olive oil for the bread which I appreciate. Bring cash because they don't... More

Sit in the covered patio for the view depending on time of year you will at least see cargo trains across the river,lose count after 30cars and just let yourself imagine it's a Chinese dragon. River paddle boats,kayakers and speed boats always seem to be going up river and tankers down. It kind of a Mark Twain moment. In between... More

I love everything about this restaurant: the quality of the food, menu selections, the service, the friendliness of the staff, the ambience. This is my favorite restaurant.

The owner's decision not to advise customers of a 'cash only' policy before diners are seated is not only disconcerting- but, I find, extremely discourteous. A discreet sign in the window/on the door- a polite few words from the wait staff.. would make a world of difference. I ordered a 'Basilica' pizza which arrived lukewarm- undercooked (dough white, no crunch)-... More
