Unpretentious location in a strip mall on the main drag (Texas Avenue) near the Bryan-College Station border. However inside is a well decorated, quiet, upscale restaurant with good service. Good menu selection. Nice wine list. Everybody in our party of four enjoyed the food. The crab/seafood cake appetizer was delicious. The fried shrimp was fresh and very tasteful. They also... More

This was my first visit to La Riviera. I was somewhat surprised to find it nestled in the middle of a strip mall on the highway but I was immediately impressed by the presentation. The entrance was open and spacious with large scale artworks dominating the atmosphere. Handsomely displayed wine selections were accented by carefully chosen lighting. Gracious staff members...

There is a nice range of food on the ample but not extensive menu, which is not really French as the title of the restaurant might imply. I greatly enjoyed the roasted Muscovy duck. Service was prompt and efficient, and there was a good selection of wines. The tables are well spaced out and there is a very pleasant open... More

Have been to La Riviera many times for lunch and have never been disappointed. The lunch menu is not extensive but offers a surprising variety of high quality options at very reasonable prices. Service is consistently very good. The dining area used for lunch is relatively small, but not cramped, and sufficiently quiet to facilitate conversation. Great place for a... More

Chef Alfonso Gonzalez consistently delivers high quality dishes at reasonable prices and accompanied by a good selection of beverages. Meat dishes were succulent with great flavor variations. One can even enjoy dinner sitting outside facing a parking lot. A rare treat in this part of Texas.

I found this restaurant while searching for places to eat in the Bryan/College Station area and was originally attracted by a free drink coupon on their website and very reasonable prices. Then, I came across a Groupon offer and decided to try it out. That was the best decision we made!! we ate here on a Tuesday, so it was... More

Located on Texas Avenue in a strip mall in the middle of Bryan/College Station, this is a great alternative to the more well known tourist destinations. The food and service are excellent. It is fine dining without fine dining prices. To be a strip center joint, it has a nice quiet atmosphere suitable for special occasions, but not a gaggle... More

We have eaten here quite a few times. It has always been a nice place to celebrate special occasions, ie, birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines, etc. We have watched it evolve from a high priced restaurant (think Christopher's & Republic) to a more moderately priced establishment (such as Madden's, Cenare, & Lemon Wedge) The menu has changed since the last time we...

This is our go to place. It's fine dining and reasonably priced. There are lots of options on the menu. I always get the Strawberry & Brie Salad. Of all the entrees we've had, we've never been disappointed. We always get the Tres Leches for dessert. The service is usually slow but the food is worth it.

My wife, mother and I ate dinner at LaRiviera last night and it was quite good, but not enough for me to give it 5 stars. The food was great and the waitress did a very good job. It took us 1 1/2hrs to eat our meal though. The place was about empty when we got there and about ¾... More
