We visited Riverview Restaurant last week with our family. Pros: The food is great! The prices reasonable. The portions good. The service first-rate. The view of the Hudson Valley priceless. Cons: They do not accept credit cards. Bottom Line: Do NOT miss this fine restaurant, but bring cash.

What a delightful dinner in a bustling restaurant. Filled with a combination of locals and tourists, this was a great choice for our dinner. It is off the beaten path of the Main St. of Cold Spring, but clearly is well known. Although it was busy, we were seated quickly (without reservations) and never felt rushed. When we were there...

Been going to the Riverview for many years never disappointed. Creative dining and a wonderful wine selection. The wait staff is very attentive. Can't wait for our next visit. Y

Two couples arrived just before noon with reservation, sat on the enclosed but open porch with a lovely breeze. By 12:30 p.m. the place was packed. Parking alongside the restaurant with overflow at adjacent municipal lot. I had the baked cod. Others had curry pasta, cucumber gespacho, and burgers. Everyone was pleased with the food and the experience.

Delicious food, great service, beautiful river view. We have dined here countless times and always have a good evening. (We've been there for lunch too and equally good then) Highly recommended.

Cold Spring is a small town, and even on a Saturday night in mid June, the better restaurants begin to close up around 9:00 pm. The Riverview's closing time is listed as 9:30pm. So, after a long day of hiking, we were thrilled that the Riverview staff agreed to serve us a few minutes after nine. And what an experience!... More

Our family has dined at Riverview for many many years now, and I can honestly say we have had an excellent dining experience every time. Without question, it is our favorite restaurant.

I highly recommend visiting this restaurant. The pizzas are great but the true masterpieces are the specials served each night. The restaurant is pricey and you need to pay with cash, no credit cards but it was worth the splurge.

Some places hold value for many years and some fall short If there was one place in Cold Spring that was dependable for excellence in value, quality, and price I would, without hesitation, recommend the Riverview Restaurant; but not anymore. They have dropped the salad as post of the entrée and even lessened the amount of wine poured per glass.... More
