I have been to this restaurant numerous times and have enjoyed their fresh salads and the clam chowder soup. The service is good and the entertainment is very good.

DInner here was delicious, it was not terribly crowded, so the staff had lots of time to entertain us by dancing to the live singer, and bringing sombreros to our table to encourage us to dance as well. The finale of the dinner was a specialty coffee, that was set on fire and poured over a tower of glasses! Fun... More

We've been coming to Riviera Grill for the last few years and it never disappoints. We love the singer Edel who performs live music almost every night. Very talented! The food is always consistent and very delish! We often order the tamarind Margarita (amazing!) grilled calamari, filet mignon, coconut shrimp, and tortilla soup. The ambiance is so special and tropical!... More

We have been coming to Rivera grill yearly since they opened up. We always enjoyed the coconut shrimp or the catch of the day. Last night was a very different dining experience. Usually we have found the place to be packed, however last night they had around 15 people total. Both my husband and I always loved the coconut shrimp.... More

They had a guitar player the evening we were there which made for a nice ambiance. Love the setting inside. The food we received was good and the service was good but it was a bit on the pricey side.

Ordered red snapper "catch of the day" and it arrived more than well done, dry...very disappointing. My wife enjoyed her shrimp, staff was friendly and the guitar player was a nice touch

Two of us had the coconut shrimp for dinner and it was delicious. A guitar player accompanied our meal and it added to the welcoming spirit we found there. There are some young, playful ‘helpers’ who brought a smile to our faces as they danced along to the music (one even put a gourd on his head as he danced).... More

This was my second trip to Nuevo Vallarta and I wanted to return to Riviera Grill as it was great last year. This year, I was disappointed. They changed the menu, quite frankly there were few things on it that I found appealing (they took away some good selections). And the prices were much higher than last year. I won't... More
