I was in the area on business and saw the reviews were good. I ordered the Lamb Shank for dinner with the Lemon Tart for desert and was very satisfied with the meal and friendly service. The tables are nicely decorated, with a LED "candle", the table cloth made of a material that helps hold plates and glasses in place,... More

We always enjoy visiting this restaurant. The food is always superb and the. Atmosphere intimate. Be sure to try the lamb shank with dill, it never disappoints. The shrimp cocktail is huge.

The cuisine at Creola's Restaurant in Riverside reminds me of grandma's cooking but kicked up several notches. The dishes are traditional with a definite homey and comforting flair. The menu features a wide variety of meats, chicken, seafood, and pasta dishes. There is also lamb as well, which for me, is a special occasion dish. I suspect Creola's takes a... More

We have eaten at Creola's many times and enjoy the quiet ambiance. The food is always good and her specials are great. We really like her special occasion dinners, she has a select menu and the choices are very tasty especially her fresh fish items. It is a little slice of wonderfulness in an area that is unexpected. I recommend... More

My wife and I where staying in San Carlos for a few days for vacation, so we were looking for good places to eat. We did a search and found Creole to be highly recommended so we decided to give it a try. The decor was nice and the staff was very attentive. However, the food wasnt all that great.... More

We have eaten here numerous times and the food is always excellent. We love to go there. One of my favorites is the lamb shank with dill sauce. The shrimp cocktails are great and the fresh bread is wonderful. My wife loves the fish dishes.

My husband and I just finished dinner celebrating our twenty year anniversary. We started with the sauté garlic mushrooms,which were a little rubbery and way to much garlic. Next we ordered the corn chowder, this is something I really was looking forward to since it was 40 degrees outside. It was canned corn, chicken broth and some hebs that gave... More

Beware! Stay away from Creola's on holidays! A late lunch at Creola's was supposed to be the highlight of my 80 year-old Mom's Mothers Day weekend. 3 o'clock reservations, 100+ degrees outside. Were the first into the door at 2:53, waited while Creola, her back to us in the next room preparing multiple servings of Bananas Foster, refused to acknowledge... More

Food is fine, upscale atmosphere but caters primarily for the 50 and older crowd. Most of the choices on the menu are mid-western type, meat and potatoes, gravy, no real spicy or out of the ordinary fare. Not real generous with their portions. Felt like they expect older people who want generally blandish food and no leftovers.

Thank Bud F
