“Underwhelming”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

we recently went to the grill for dinner. while my enchiladas were tasty, everyone else had a pedestrian meal, at best. their special scallops were inedible and they looked terrible. the fajitas are better at your local american spot at home. if you appreciate a good meal, i don't suggest this place. it's simply not good.

“Great experience, will definitely visit again.”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

A close walk from Paradise Village, my husband and I were recommended this beautiful garden restaurant by another couple staying at our resort. They kept raving about the seafood. So we decided to try it out. The outside wall hides the beautiful gardens but gives it a very romantic feel. The hostess was very accomodating and the server was quick to take our order after bringing a specials board and explaining the dishes in detail. He recommended the Mariscada Riviera (similar to a seafood paella) which my husband ordered. I ordered a spinach salad with blue cheese dressing since I wanted to leave some room for the coconut tiramisu which had been recommended by the couple at our resort. Both dishes were AMAZING!! My husbands mariscada was very abundant so I got to taste it. You could tell the seafood was very fresh. Then came the coconut tiramisu! WOW! The hints of coconut really gave it a nice tropical touch. Thank you Riviera Grill! Will definitely be back.

“Fabulous!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Beautiful Gardens!
What a beautiful restaurant! This place is surrounded by beautiful palm trees and warm lighting giving it a very intimate ambiance. It is truly a surprise. Ignore the outside and just go in! The food is amazing! The menu is a nice combination of mediterranean and mexican food (I believe the owners are Italian). Service was great, music was great, ambiance was great. Highly recommend Riviera Grill.
