    By far one of the most incredible dining experiences we’ve enjoyed. Having travelled across North America and Europe, I’ve had the privilege of dining and many of the world’s most renowned eateries. Riviera is at the top of the list with the best of them. The food, the service, the cocktails and the ambiance were all top notch. Particularly impressed with Somelier Colin and legendary mixologist Steve! The beef tartare was one of the top 5 plates I’ve enjoyed in my life.

    Fantastic food, incredible service whilst sitting at the bar and outstanding drinks by Mr Flood. I was served by Elvida (apologies if incorrectly spelt) and Connor (sommelier) who were both attentive, knowledgable and went out of their way to make a celebratory solo dinner even more special with their kindness and service. Will be coming back again very soon! The mushroom toast, ricotta gnudi and pavlova were exceptional.

    My wife and I had a great evening at Riviera. Had the oysters, burrata and tomato salad, cob salad, lobster spaghetti, sole, with a great Chablis. Looking forward to returning soon.

    Server was excellent but room was noisy and music turned up made it difficult to converse. Food was good but we expected excellent given the reviews and prices.

    Superb cocktails paired with exquisitely prepared food. Last Word and Vesper Martinis made me recall times spent in swanky European hotel bars. The steak frites was perfectly seasoned. potato encrusted cod was beyond delicious. Superb is how my husband described it. He was very reluctant to share. The server was knowledgeable, attentive but not in an overly fussy way. Only fault is the venue… a converted bank building, the restaurant’s high ceilings provided a lush hush but the lack of quality table linens made it feel a bit cold and austere. As if it were aiming more for a cool hipness rather than elegance. This observation, however, reflects more of my personal preference. Overall, Rivieria far exceeded my expectations. Will definitely return next time we are in town. Highly recommended for those who are particular.

    The strip loin steak with fries is awesome. If you order this, you will not be disappointed. Visited Last Monday July 8th. Great service, awesome food. You actually leave a high end restaurant full.

    Good food and attentive service. While my steak and frites were excellent the dish could have added at least a small vegetable serving. Would also love to see beer served in a classic stein.
