I traveled alone to Cold Spring and this restaurant was suggested as one to dine. I chose a small pizza (which could have fed 2 people) that was more than I could eat and delicious. The view was nice and the waitress was pleasant. Overall a nice experience and lovely restaurant. I didn't mind dining alone!

It was our first visit to the Riverview and we were totally pleased with the food and the service. They have an interesting menu and everything is prepared fresh. The cold cucmber gazpacho was light refreshing and delicious. The baked cod was exceptional-very fresh, perfectly cooked with a nice crust served with fresh corn and spinach. A great summer dish....

Dined here because it was still open in the middle of the afternoon. Happy I did. Had the “Burger Special” and it was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. A varied menu that leans toward Italian. Never did see a view.

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...

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.
