Over time, the restaurant has improved the décor and work with somewhat difficult space. One nice aspect is two private rooms available to reserve. The food is always good and not overly pretentious. They have great deserts because of experience as a bakery.

The food is excellent--my favorite item: shrimp enchiladas. Waitstaff knowledgeable and friendly. Not inexpensive but well worth the price. My visits have always found the place quiet and dignified. La Riviera is probably my favorite B/CS restaurant.

This restaurant was such a pleasant surprise. I went there because I had a gift cert that was about to expire. Wish I had gone sooner. The food , ambiance and wine list were incredible. I started with Oysters Rockefeller and then had the beef tenderloins and would put this dish up against any 4 star reassurance in Houston. Brandon... More

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
