We went for dinner at Rive Bistro last night. The food was superb. However, the service is very, very slow. It seemed that there was enough service people roaming about but that is just it they seemed to be roaming aimlessly about the restaurant without being attentive to the patrons. The demeanor of the staff was bland except for one young man who was from England. We also noted that after the waitstaff take your order they then have to enter it all on a computer screen and that seemed to take far too long. We ordered drinks and they took a very long time to arrive. The appetizers of romaine salad, Foie gras and oysters were excellent as was the grilled salmon with kale and mashed potatoes. We waited, and waited, and waited some more for someone to offer dessert and coffee. Finally we requested coffee from a busboy passing by then after a fashion our waitress appeared, we ordered the apple tartan and waited and waited some more. We saw who we assumed to be the manager heading our way with the dessert when all of a sudden he took a detour, after a few minutes he approached us with the dessert, which was also wonderful. All in all it took us over 2 hours to have dinner. We felt that it was far too long and feel that if the Rive Bistro would work on these service issues it would be perfect.
