You have found what you are looking for. Great innovative food and drinks. Great energy, if a bit loud. Their take on feijoada with medium rare lamb chops on top was amazing. Too many great dishes to list. Go with friends and order lots and share.

Great interesting menu and wine list. Large group but could still have a good conversation.

Went with 2 friends for my birthday lunch. We shared several small plates and had a great time. Unique and very flavorful.

This was our second time we celebrated our anniversary at Rivera.
First time we went to the Spain room and had the pre fix dinner with wonderful dishes from Spain, Central America and Mexico. This time, we sat in their Playa Room which is their more casual Mexico side. We loved everything we ate - handmade tortilla with flowers pressed in it with the best smooth guacamole, beautiful octopus plate, skewered cod with citrus salad, sweet corn flan with black quinoa, Jidori Chicken with dry curry spices, Pork Shoulder with amazing red sauce and the amazing drinks. Loved the vanilla infused tequila.

Starting at the bar; the BEST cocktails mixed up by the resident mixoligist! Never have had such good Tequila cocktails. Food choices were superb. My wife had pork butt and I had seared Scallops. We shared and each enjoyed the offerings. We also shared a small salad. Each item was meticulously prepared, presented, and tasted exquisite. French pressed coffee was delicious and strong along with a shared dessert. We would definitely go back and tae friends as well.
