“Wonderful atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We have been to this restaurant twice since arriving in NV. They are consistently good. The first time I had their salad with chicken and raspberry dressing - it was the first time I saw people wanting to take a taste of salad from someone else's plate!! haha The dressing was AMAZING!!! All four of us were happy with the food, service and all of us loved the atmosphere. On our second visit, I really should have just ordered the same thing but I tried the ravoli - it was ok at best. I only got 6 pieces of ravoli for about 170 peso...a little disappointing. I will most definitely return next year.

“@nd time even better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

This is the second year in the row that we have eaten here and it has pleasantly improved since the last time. The ambiance is wonderful and Ignatio our waiter did compliment our evening with great service. The food was good for the price although one of our group member returned the tuna special (overcooked) to have a new seared portion served (great improvement).
The spaish coffee is worth waiting for and Ignatio did a wonderful job presenting it with all it's flaming visual show.

“Great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here yesterday; best chili rellenos bar none. Not swimming in sauce or cheese so I was able to taste all the ingredients. Have had dinner here many times over the last few years and never disappointed but yesterday went over the top.Fernando, thanks for a great dinner. The frozen cappuccino was great too. See you all again.

“Riverside Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Fajita's and shrimp are wonderful at the Riviera Grill. The guacamole was good, pico was great. Of course the margarita's were good. One person ordered a something that came in a big stone bowl - he said it was really good.

We watched raccoons in a small clearing just down the hill from the restaurant.

“Always enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Have been returning here each time we are in Neuvo. The best chicken mole ever! Hubby wanted fish and enjoyed fried red snapper. Huge portions of pico and guacamole. Music quite enjoyable and atmosphere of being able to dine outside is great when you think of cold weather back home. Will return!!!
