The service was very good, there was a small problem with one of the meals and the server dealt with it the way all servers should, which leaves a lasting and positive impression on the diner. Well done.

Had an amazing evening at Tramonto! Superior service with delicious food and an amazing view to boot! Will definitely be recommending to friends for future dinners. Seems like a bit of a hidden gem tucked away inside the River Rock but it truly is an excellent dining experience that nobody should miss out on! Would give 6 stars if I could!

I have been waiting awhile
I have been waiting awhile to go to Tramonto at the River Rock, but hadn’t gotten around to it until recently.
The restaurant itself is lovely – romantic, modern décor, ambient lighting, and huge windows offering views of the Fraser river and North Shore mountains. Soon after being seated, we were given some fresh rustic bread with a high quality olive oil for dipping, as well as a gluten free option for my wife. My wife has allergies, and the restaurant made every effort to accommodate.
We started with the Dungeness crab cakes and the pistachio crusted goat cheese – both were very tasty and satisfying, and larger appetizers than we were expecting.
For a main dish, I ordered the Duck Duo, which was amazing. The pan roasted duck breast

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner - just the right amount! AND, the martini's were EXCELLENT - we complimented the bartender on leaving. We found the wine list rather pricy, so we didn't indulge, which was a pity.

We had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed the outstanding service and delicious food. We just missed a rich Starbucks cup of coffee at the end. Everything else was incredible.

Mother's Day dinner
Nice view and environment. A busy night on Mother's Day, we appreciated the great service.

Great food and attentive service!
Wii defintely go back.
One of the draw backs and it not the restaurants fault is not being able to leave a jscket/coat at a table in Lulus Lounge so you can go back and lasiten to music.
I see gamblers doing this all the time.

Two of us were celebrating our birthdays so I requested a particular dessert, that was not on the menu. It was nicely presented as well as they sang Happy Birthday to us!

Tramanto, a great experience
If you want to treat yourself to the best of everything, Tramanto is it in Richmond. World class service, Chef Sylvain's brigade, constantly innovates with the right flavours, and superior food quality. A diverse and balanced wine list. and the view looking west to a great sunset or the planes approaching YVR, you will get the full dining experience here. Expect to spend a couple of C-notes, but it will be worth it.

And of course Paul Anka set off a very successful evening.

A busy, go-to spot, had reservations and were seated immediately at the perfect table for 2. Our friendly waiter was extremely knowledgeable and informative regarding the menu and extensive wine list. We decided on the seafood platter for 2 to share, my husband had the 'duck duo', I chose the lobster corn chowder. The seafood platter was tasty, however at $41.00 seemed at little sparse, could have used more shellfish. Our mains were delicious. Ambience was lively and fun, noise level was high. Service by the restaurant staff was impeccable. We checked into the hotel, had dinner at Tramonto, enjoyed the Bill Cosby show and had a peaceful night's sleep before heading home next day - great way to spend the evening!

A lovely evening had by all
Dined at Tramonto on a sunny Friday evening with 3 friends & had a lovely evening. The Tramonto staff was amazing - friendly, attentive, not overbearing, and just all-round smooth service all night. From the hostesses to the servers, we were treated with great respect & we felt like our needs were listened to. Food was absolutely delicious - wine, starters, entrees and desserts! definitely safe room for dessert! Try to request a window table if you make your reservation early enough. The sunset was beautiful and the marina/river view was a nice special touch. cannot wait to go back to Tramonto again and we will definitely be telling our friends about this place! everyone in Richmond and Vancouver should try it at least once - you'll love it

I had a reservation for. 7 on a Saturday, unfortunately my boyfriend forgot his ID and we had to return back to the house. We asked if we could push out reservation to 7:45 and it was no problem. I'm also glad we did since the sunset was beautiful. Our food was great the antipasto for 2, sausage stuffed calamari, and crabcakes. Oh also the cheesecake for desert. Everything was so tasty. Our server was Faud ( I believe that's his name) he truly made our evening a dining experience as opposed to just going out for dinner. The Tramanto was fabulous and I can't wait to go again.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
You have to try this place
Tramonto was an amazing place that had a beautiful view of the water and sun. Food was amazing -I am a vegetarian so the chef accomodated the gnocci dish making it without meat. The halibut dish that others ordered was very delicious. The server totally pampered us with great service and bringing items in a timely fashion. I totally recommend Tramonto for any person who likes to enjoy food, fun & a relaxing evening. I am hoping to take my husband there for a relaxing dinner.

Everything was great until...
... we were served our main course. This is a great restaurant (fine dining), the service is great (most of the servers have been there since the restaurant opened), the view is spectacular but not all entrees are great. My chicken was dry and my husband's pasta was "mushy" ... but the presentation was very nice ! We've had great meals before at this restaurant but on Friday, it wasn't all great !

The Best in the West!
Had a spectacular evening - amazing food from start to finish and divine service! Our server made great recommendations for wine and food and had great skill in explaining every detail of the menu, from the ingredients to the way the chef prepares it. Their June lobster menu has some great items and everyone in our group loved their appetizers, entrees & desserts - don't forget wine, cocktails, and cappuccinos! Re: the butter (someones comment below), it is definitely REAL butter, it has just been whipped, which makes it taste even better. You can even request firm butter or oil & vinegar if you prefer. they really do cater to your needs - just ask if you feel something missing. i would definitely recommend Tramonto to friends and family!

Fathers' night at Tramonto
This was a special evening for my husband since it would be Fathers' Day on Sunday. I requested a front window seat and the venue did not disappoint. We had a lovely meal of Lobster which was sweet, juicy and beautifully spiced. We especially enjoy the Caesar salad. Our waiter was especially friendly and helpful with both the menu and the wine and of course the service was excellent. We like this restaurant for the ambience and the view. We look forward to our next outing at Tramonto. Would and have recommended it for dinner.

Very good food, well presented by very efficient staff.

Little hidden gem
Both food and service are top notch. It's on the expensive side, but for the food and service that we receive, it is worth it.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Tramonto at RIver Rock Casino Resort for our 45th wedding anniversary. The food was the best we have had in a very long time................The prices are a bit higher than Victoria eateries....but well worth every penny.
The view of the marina is lovely...
I was expecting a more quiet environment....large tables of celebrations.....very loud...
Our waiter was amazing and made sure our night was a success..so thanks to him!!! The manager came over and congratulated us also...
We will be going back when we return to the River ROck Cssino Resort
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tramonto was an enjoyable experience, again. Impeccable service, a gracious and friendly Maître d', excellent knowledgeable wait staff and an incredible wine list. Tramonto is without question the finest dining experience in Richmond, BC.
My wife has some food allergies and they prepared an incredible meal for us that addressed her food concerns and was tasty and presented beautifully. As they say on TV, "You've got to eat here"!

Appie and Seafood Delight!
My partner and I had a wonderful dinner at Tramonto. The wild mushroom soup had a side vol-au-vent overflowing with a melange of sauteed mushrooms. It was scalding hot and delicious. The tomato salad which had a round of mozzarella topped by with a stack of mixed lettuces, wedges of yellow and red mid-sized tomatoes, some slivered basil, pitted green olives and a fig balsamic dressing. The tomatoes were flavourful and of perfect ripeness... the unripened cheese was mild, the basil fruity, and the dressing perfectly balanced to create a masterpiece. The seafood platter for two was perfect as well. Best scallops (seared) I think I've ever enjoyed! All in all very VERY nice food. Perhaps a bit pricey, but worth it!

Tramonto, a special food experience
We have been going to Tramonto for many years and enjoy it immensely. The food is well presented, exceptionally good and adequately appetite sized. The chef obviously loves his trade, as the food is is delectable! Our waiter, Fouad, treats us like royalty, is funny and recommends different plates on the menu with honesty, which is much appreciated. Peter, the restaurant manager, is so attentive and is not above himself to help the waiters when needed, so everything flows nicely.
We would and do recommend Tramonto to our friends with enthusiasm!

We were going to the show at the River Rock, our server was great and kept us on track so that we had a great dinner, didn't feel rushed and was at the show on time.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Though the service was absolutely impeccable and the atmosphere relaxing with lovely views,
the very promising menu did not deliver a quality meal. Being so handy to enjoy dinner before a show
we returned a second time hoping for a better dining experience , but no. Bland, greasy and stale again.
Too bad, with a new chef Tramonto's could justify the $35 a plate prices and truly be a five-star experience.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I were made to feel most welcome. The food and service were excellent! I would definitely recommend Tramonto's to anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful place to dine on special occassions or "just because". I have dined at Tramonto many times over the years and am consistently pleased. The appetizers, entrees and deserts are full of flavor and well paired with sides. The service is fantastic. Although Fouad is my favorite, everyone works hard to make your experience special. Try it out but give yourself time to enjoy the full experience. Don't rush dinner for a show at Riverrock. Allow 2-3 hours and you will leave happy! Show-goers, get there for a 5:00 seating, don't rush a 6:00 one, you will feel rushed.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food. Good Service
My wife and I went and had the antipasti for 2 and wow was it a lot of food! We were almost full just on that appetizer. We also ordered the Linguini and the Duck breast. The Linguini has giant size scallops and was definitely worth the price. My wife had the duck (something she never orders) and is loved how moist and tender it was. The first waiter that spoke to us talked very passionately about the food and where it was locally sourced. The only thing that was slightly confusing was the waiters changed on us in the middle of dinner service and it wasn't like the first waiter was on a break or anything, he was just at another table.
We are definitely coming back!

Tramonto...a new favourite!
We watched the sunset as we had dinner, its was lovely. Food was delicious; service over the top; ambiance very comfortable, we could talk quietly, no yelling over loud music or other diners. We were there early in the evening because we wanted a window table for the view/sunset. Only downside was that we had to go through the casino to get from the parking to the restaurant, a bit like running the gauntlet. On the way back to the parking lot we skipped the casino and took the longer way via the street.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top notch service
The food was great. We enjoyed the goat cheese entree and seafood platter and cheesecake.The service was impeccable. The server brought us sparkling wine to celebrate our special occasion and split our shared dishes into two. We will go back again.

I would love to give it 6 stars !!!
Had my birthday dinner here and it was amazing.
When I entered the restaurant, the very friendly hostess greeted us and welcomed us to Tramonto. She then seated us at a lovely corner table where it was quite and with a great view.
We ordered the crab cake which was good. My bf ordered the beef tenderloin and it was so soft and tender, it just melted in my mouth ! I ordered the seafood platter and delightful !!! The yummy clams, lobster tail, crab claw and scallop !! (It came with mussels but I'm not a big fan of it, so I asked for more clams)
Anyways it's always a pleasure to come here because the food and service is always consistent :) I can't wait until I come back again!
P.S. You must try there pear sorbet !!!!!

Great year long date night!!!
It was our anniversary and I was looking for a romantic place to stay all together with great service and great tasting food. We actually ate at this restaurant the first time we share our feelings together, and instantly, I was loving the food great overlooking table, candle light dinner; most of all, the service!!! The guy was a little bit loud (don't get me wrong. I love it!) and he talks with his hands. Explains the menu very well. Suggested some food. Surprised my girlfriend with a very beautifully made tiramisu cake... Their service and food goes well together. I will for sure come back to have another dinner with my girlfriend. No doubt.

Perfect Birthday Dinner
We visited Tramonto for my husband's birthday and had a wonderful experience. The food was DELICIOUS! The scallop appetizer was to die for. I particularly liked that the actually split it onto two plates after I indicated that my husband and I would be sharing. I had the risotto for dinner and my husband the beef tenderloin, and both were excellent. Also, great wine list and great service. All in all, a perfect dinner and good value for the money in my opinion. I would go back again.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I were there to celebrate his 60th birthday. We had requested a table at the window and were not disappointed. Everything about our experience was perfect. The food portions were quite large, very nicely presented and it was all delicious. Our server was lovely and heplful. She acknowledged the occasion with a beautifully decorated dessert for us to share. We appreciated the attention to detail. This was our first visit to Tramonto and we will look forward to our return.

Ladies book club night out
One of our book club ladies was having a special birthday, so we went out to Tramonto to celebrate before the BeatleShow at the River Rock. The waiter was very attentive, and worked around my allergies and had good suggestions for the other fussy eaters (no gluten, low cal, etc) The views were impressive and the atmosphere perfect. They even came out with a special birthday dessert for our friend, nicely done.
Everyone raved about the dinner and we finished well in time to get to the show on time.
