It was a wonderful buffet, full of variety and delicious options; boiled shrimp, beef enchiladas, salads, pastas, grilled veggies, etc. The desserts were magnificent. That was our first time at the restaurant, so we looked at the regular menus too.

The had a limited special menu for graduation, would like to try items from the full menu the next time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMost accessible fine dining in BCSLa Riveria is a teriffic, if under-appreciated, place for fine dining in Bryan and College Station. Folks looking for a great meal usually end up at the same two or three places in town, but La Riveria can hold its own against those better-known places. Plus, it is much easier to get a table whenever you want.
The only downside is their very limited wine list. Great meals should be accompanied by great wines. Even for most of the wines they do offer, there are much better choices at those same price points. The owner or chef should talk to someone who knows wine and revamp the selections. They don't need to pay big bucks to a professional wine consultant, just ask any of local oenophiles.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAn ideal luncheon venueOur luncheon group meets monthly at La Riviera.

The food was good and the ambiance was perfect for a celebration. I found the service to be very personal, the server was attentive and made us feel like the only table she had. Although the selection on the menu was not huge, there was something for everyone. Almost everyone at our table tried something new and enjoyed what they got. This is a great location for a quick romantic get away or a special family celebration.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and atmosphere!Excellent food and atmosphere!

The food is always excellent.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA pleasant evening out!Our dinner was tasty and pleasant, and the service was attentive without being at all intrusive. There were many interesting entree choices, as well as salads and appetizers. They were perfectly willing to split the lovely gorgonzola/pear salad, presenting it very attractively on two plates. We had the stuffed planked salmon and the pave pork loin; the portions of the main courses were reasonable, neither pretentiously small nor overwhelmingly large, and they were well equipped with vegetable sides. All was expertly cooked and presented, though the pork was inexplicably tough. We had looked forward to trying an Argentine Malbec, knowing that it is a rare varietal but -- alas! -- they were all out of it. Overall, a nice treat!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our meal at La Riviera and will be back.
