“An outstanding choice for food and location. This is a large, well staffed restaurant specializing in seafood, but with very good beef, poultry, and lamb options on offer. Our party of eight chose diverse appetizers, soups, salads, main courses and deserts. We thoroughly tested the restaurant capability and it performed with excellence.” — Warsawrun via Trip Advisor
“We had an incredible dinner experience at Riva! I would highly recommend it. Our gang had the soft shelled crab, crab legs, and the surf and turf. All were excellent!! The service was great and the view was wonderful. We will be back.” — Keri M. via Facebook
“Food was fabulous, servers on point setting was great. I put on my reservation that I wanted a booth and that was celebrating spouse birthday. Upon arrival were seated immediately at a table but requested was adhered to. The waiter came later with a complimentary birthday dessert. Nice touch. Always enjoy our experience at Riva’s.” — M.

“From a quick bite by the bar to a nice dinner at their formal restaurant this place rocks! I loved the ambience, the location, the food and the service! Few times I give a 5 star to a place, but this one is now one of my favorites! I was here for a business dinner after a long day of meetings and I am very happy with the choice made by my colleagues (business locals). I cant wait to come back with my wife and have a romantic dinner and enjoy a great view of the lake and the city by sitting at their tables by the window.” — Moises G. via Trip Advisor
“We go to Riva every year to celebrate our anniversary because it is our favorite spot! We just celebrated our 16th one there and our daughter’s 13th birthday as well. We love the scenic views of the lake and the skyline! The food is always amazing and their chocolate cake is the best! The customer service is very good. The prices are a little higher, but is why we only go on a special occasion and not all the time. We will be back next year!!” — Christine G. via Open Table
“We had such a beautiful dinner prior to going to Shakespeare Theater! If you want to get a table by the Lake, have an early dinner. The view was beautiful, but most of all, the staff provided impeccable service. Try the oysters, tuna, beet salad, salmon, filet mignon…actually, try everything! You cannot go wrong.” — Michelle P. via Facebook
