Riverview in Cold Spring is just off the main drag, and has plenty of parking nearby. It is sort of on the river, but just misses having a great river view. That being said, it is a nicely decorated restaurant although we found the tables to be a little close. It can also get noisy when full, which is inevitable... More

This is the best restaurant in the region. And I will add, in a region with Culinary grads coming out of the woodwork. Last week I went with a group to Wednesday night, aka Pizza night. Pizza night is the night you can order an appetizer and a pizza for a fixed price...I think mine was $16.00. I had the... More

The outside entrance was very un inviting! If it wasn't for the bland green awning, I wasn't sure which door was the entrance. Once inside, the decor was ok. Able to be seated by a window and saw the fabulous view of about 10ft of the Hudson River. The wine list was poor and the food was just a bit... More

First off go early or late so you can sit by windows and view the boats along the Hudson. If it's crowded you get put in the dinning room with white table cloths and white paper on top. But we didn't get white paper only old menus and asked to choose 3 crayons for each toddler- no high chairs but... More

We were staying in Cold Spring while visiting West Point and Storm King Art Center. The restaurant was recommended by the owner of our B&B. We were a little hesitant about the looks of the outside of the building, but it was quite lovely when we got inside. The waitstaff and chef were very friendly and helpful when we were... More

I went with friends on a Wednesday for an early dinner before going to the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. We arrived at 4:55 (apparently they opened at 5:00) The person who seated us was a little snooty and said "I guess you can come in. Do you have a reservation?" We did not, but it wasn't like there was a... More

We knew going in they did not take credit cards. Instead of a bottle of wine we settled for a couple of glasses. We avoided the entries and stayed with appetizers and shared a pizza. We also avoided dessert knowing how much cash we had. But I do have to say the food was great, despite the fact we did... More

Everything works great here: the menu offerings vary and it's all good wether it's Wednesday pizza night price fix special or the full menu with daily specials. The fish is fresh and expertly prepared, the service excellent and the view marvelous. I've been dinning there for 25 years and looking forward to the next 25.

My wife and I have frequented Riverview Dining in Cold Spring many times. What impresses us the most is its consistency. The food is very tasty and finely prepared, the environment is relaxed with beautiful views of the Hudson River and surrounding mountains, and the service is both attentive and welcoming. We highly recommend this either for a special occasion... More
