Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, all alcohol service must be completed by 9 pm and the restaurant must be closed by 10 pm. We are currently able to seat parties up to a maximum of 4 guests - unfortunately, we do not accommodate groups of 4 if they are from different households.

Our waiter was fantastic, my husband and I go there any chance we get!
Very good and delicious food. Friendly staff, gave great recommendations for food and drinks. Excellent place to go for a birthday, anniversary or a date night!
Very impressive food and super service with a smile. Oysters (and the spicy dressing) were a particular standout . Some real skill in the kitchen. It was my third time here, and we booked the fourth on the way out! Well done all @ Riveria.
Delicious as always. Impeccable food and service. Always my go to restaurant in Ottawa for fine dining.
Parfait, comme toujours. From the drinks, to the food and service, Riviera never disappoints.

This is my favourite restaurant in the city. They never fail to impress. The ambience, food, drink and staff are stellar. Great adherence to social distancing requirements. Very happy to be able to sneak a reservation in during the pandemic for a bit of an escape.
Very beautiful restaurant. Very good food.
Très beau restaurant. Très bon repas.
Selection of wines by the glass...would like more options but I understand it’s complicated and perhaps they change with the seasons .
It was one of the best meals I’ve ever had.
Hands down a must visit when you are in Ottawa. Very creative menu with great wine list and service
Fantastic ambiance, great service, a beautiful building, and delicious cocktails. The food became secondary to the overall experience, but it did not disappoint. Every dish was perfectly done with only the Rabbit being slightly disppointing.
Wonderful experience all round. The food and service were exceptional. The art by @rowancorkhill perfectly curated.
Amazing ambience and decor. Food was excellent. Would definitely go back again.
Very nice evening. Enjoyed out dishes very much and would recommend to anyone looking for an elegant night out.
Experience was amazing!! I will recommend to friends and will come back again once I return to Ottawa
Fantastic... great restaurant and incredible service. We are super glad that we supported this restaurant.
Un endroit magnifique, des plats savoureux, une excellente carte des vins.
Braeden notre serveur, charmant.
Nous y retournerons.
Decided to splurge and go by myself before the Lockdown. Staff was fantastic and the food was amazing!
Perfect! As always. I love Riviera.
The mushroom toast was outstanding! Flavourful, tons of mushrooms and fresh. The cavatelli was good too. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and respectful of COVID precautions.
This was our first time here and definitely not our last, the old bank setting mixed with the massive bar and cozy seating made for the perfect night out. The food was amazing to the point we had to try the dessert even though we where stuffed. The staff where all professional and made the experience worthy of 5 stars.
It was the best dinner ever.
It’s always a nice treat. I love Riviera. Best cocktails in town!!
