Saturday afternoon late lunch/early dinner. Our waiter provided excellent, friendly service. His knowledge of the menu items guided us in our food selections. My nephew ordered Blackened Tilapia Tacos. My sister ordered Chimichanga Camerones (Shrimp), and l ordered Zucchini & Corn Tostadas. Vegetarian tortilla soup was full of flavor. Sauces provided were a smoked Chipotle, salsa Verde, a mole, and... More

We had a late snack here after gallery night. I love nachos and their version was really good and filling. The nachos were topped with mashed beans, grilled chicken (your choice of meat), fresh tomatoes, cheese, guacamole, etc.

One of the best of many great eateries in the Bayview area. The menu was eclectic Mexican with specialities, and the food was plentiful and delicious. Service was top notch. We will return to this restaurant. Overall, somewhat pricey, but a good choice for special evenings.

A friend took four of us out to dinner on a Wednesday night at 6:00PM and chose Riviera Maya because of its fresh ingredients. Since it's in Bay View, parking is at a premium. We got a table at the window, although it was too cold outside to people watch. Our waiter was impossible to understand; fortunately our hostess speaks... More

Love the moles! Inventive, richly developed flavors! There are plenty of a variety of dishes for everyone to sample the different moles. The margaritas are yummy too and service is efficient.

I really love coming here for special events such as the birthday which I have often done in the past. The employees are always friendly and prompt. I also really like the variety of mole that's offered. The food is well prepared and there's a good Friday on the menu. It is often times very festive and in a great... More

We had supper at Riviera Maya on Sunday, 9/6/2015. This place is in the Bay View area and serves Mexican food. They offer complimentary Tortilla soup with any entree but not complimentary chips and salsa. The dining area that we were in was crowded and the tables were small. We had loaded tacos which were average. The noise level was... More

Not much parking, so had to walk a ways. Food was just ok. Didn't care for the sauces and the food was bland. There are much better Mexican restaurants in the Milwaukee area. Service wasn't very good either. The waiter didn't know which enchilada plate was which, and one of our diners has severe shellfish allergies. Very scary. I won't... More

When visiting Riviera Maya, you must try the mole sampler to get a true appreciation of the flavors this kitchen creates. Each one has a distinctive flavor and brings a unique sensory palette to the dish. The chocolate mole is rich and complex, while the peanut was not as strong as we would have liked. The special mole of the... More

The food in this place is the closest I've found in MKE to true Mexican food (I'm from Mexico). The beef milanesa torta is absolutely awesome. The moles sample is also great. The place is small but pintoresque and very well kept. I've taken a lot of friends and everyone has liked it a lot. Easy to find parking (parking... More
