“Babies not welcome”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

It is so unfortunate that what was a delightful meal was ruined by the lack of baby changing facilities. Our family went to the Rivington for a Mother's day celebration and received a glass of complimentary champagne for each mother. How lovely! BUT, upon enquiring about where I could change my 17 month old daughter's nappy, I was told that I could ask the restaurant over the road if I could use theirs. I found this to be a highly disrespectful suggestion, and the staff seemed to be very unapologetic about this situation. it upset me even further as the staff seemed more than happy to accommodate two parties that had both brought in their dogs with water bowls.

Aside from this, the food is very good, but the service leaves a lot to be desired.

“Best steak frites & wine I've had in years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Have been coming to the Rivington for well over 5 years, it's had it's ups & downs in my opinion; food no quite up to the price charged, service not always that good. Wines on the other hand have been consistently good especially on the inexpensive end of the scale.

I feel compelled to write as my last visit was perfect. The Holy Trinity of excellent food, great wine & good service were all satisfied admirably. My dinner date declared her sirloin steak to be the best she'd ever had ( up until a year ago she was a vegetarian. Make of that what you will!). The wine was a Minervois which was delicious. My steak was perfectly cooked. It came with bearnaise but I asked for some gravy ( a great test of any chef) it was sublime!

In short an excellent dining experience.

“Good service and food and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I've eaten here several times on business lunches and dinners. The service has been prompt and attentive on each occasion and the food has been well presented and highly satisfactory. I'll return and consider it a good option for pleasure as well as business.
