We heard about this place at our hotel and trip advisor. They said it was a really good happy hour from 4-6:30. They were correct. The problems is that there is all kinds of construction going on right where they are located. Plenty of parking behind the Rivera. Friendly service, something from everyone. Wine , well drinks and appetizers only... More

We had a dinner for nine here on a Saturday night. The food was great. The place is pretty small but they take reservations. The servers are really pleasant. My only issue was that the room was pretty warm for an April night.

Excellent choice of food paired with wines! Will dine here again any time! Food was mostly European with an American flair, the perfect combination

Their food was so fresh and their drinks range from classic to new inventions. I tried a few different drinks during happy hour and loved every one. My favorite dinner had to be the lamb. I can't think of a place I've ever been in the country that has had such a great portion of such an amazing piece of... More

I was visiting Glenwood Springs with a friend and was looking forward to going out for a nice dinner. The menu looked appealing on line. We were seated by a friendly young man at a table by the window and unfortunately there is some messy construction going on. Our server was an unfriendly woman who actually served my glass of...

The room is a bit strange, loud, not real warm and inviting. Food, however, was very tasty, service prompt, not overly warm (like the room!)

Service was good. The escargot was excellent. 2 of us had the mixed seafood paella which was juicy but the seafood itself was average.

New Ownership at the Riviera has created a marvelous addition to the restaurant fare in old Glenwood Springs. The Pullman raised the bar for fine dining in the area, and the Riviera has pretty much matched them. We loved our dinner there, with three generations all satisfied. Food was superb, and the service was utterly personal. It is great to... More

My husband thought it wouldn't be a problem to go out for dinner on Valentine's Day without a reservation in the busy town of Glenwood Springs, CO. He thought if we got to a restaurant early enough (5pm) we would get in to most of the restaurants along the river. After trying to get into several and being told that... More

Local star chef Travis Owen now is here (sadly they closed Cuvee World Bistro in Basalt), but his influence on this place is obvious with the 60 choices of wine by the glass. The food was great, just like Cuvee'. Had the mahogany 4 day duck, soup and truffle fries. Had a bottle of 2013 Girard Petit Sirah which was... More
