Our family of 7 went for dinner here tonight. We got seated right away. Cute decor. Everyone loved their dinner - great food / reasonably priced. Service was excellent.

For one of the best Mexican meals in the South Bay, try the Riviera. It has the best free corn chips and fresh salsa of any Mexican restaurant in Southern California. You have to be careful not to eat more than 1 basketful or you won't be able to finish your dinner. They specialize in seafood plates, but traditional plates... More

I had the "plain" carnitas with black beans and rice and they were INCREDIBLE. I know others have had trouble with the service but we had wonderful service.

Okay, maybe not a hidden gem to the locals, but it sits back in a corner of a small strip of places so you could miss it. It was a Saturday night at 6pm and there was a wait for us that ended up being an hour, so make sure you have some patience. What I thought was unbelievable was... More

Hard to spot this place amongst other eateries, restaurants in the many stripmalls that line this stretch of the PCH. It is across from the Smart and Final and a block from he Bank of America. It probably is not on the itinerary of most tour packages, and perhaps just as well. We went with a group for brunch, which... More

I was visiting family in SoCal, and we all decided to try the Rivera Mexican Grill for Sunday brunch. I had serious reservations about going to a Mexican restaurant for my breakfast, but was oh so surprised. The atmosphere is casual beach and the decor matches. But the offerings were surprising. French toast, and a potato egg skillet, but also... More

Was unsure about this after reading the reviews but decided to go ahead and try it, so glad I did enjoyed the food the waitress was lovely really chatty but not over top. It was a bit noisy but that was because there was a few birthday celebrations happening but it wasn't offensive it added to the ambience. The food... More

Noisy and food is mediocre. Poor seating. Service is slow. There is always a wait to be seated, not sure why. Went there a couple of times. There are better Mexican restaurants in the South Bay.
