We came for Easter brunch. It was super busy with a long wait but luckily we made a reservation. We were surprised the buffet was fully stocked and everything was fresh despite the restaurant being so busy! The buffet staff was friendly and our server was Jo and she was great as always. We love coming here!

Wanted to try something different and Palmilla delivered. Great tacos (both steak and fish) and enchilada's. Sangria hit the spot. Great service!! Will definitely add to our list of restaurants to go back to.

Riviera Mexican Grill (better known by locals as The Riv) has been a staple in the community for the past two decades. Founded by the Williams Family, The Riv is Where We Live. South Bay legends are on our walls. Come and sit at the bar and don't be surprised to start talking to a professional surfer or paddle-boarder eating one of our famous fish tacos and washing it down with a margarita. The Riv is a place where locals meet to discuss our community and keep in touch with old friends. Bring the family. We are here and excited to serve you. #TheRiv

Come enjoy our two outdoor patios with full service food and drinks.

Our party of 5 sat outside. Their staff is very attentive, efficient, friendly and you'll not have to flag them down. All food and drinks were great. Plentiful portions and bottomless chips and salsa. A fun atmosphere.
