Diner Reviews
  • "Our waitress gave us free dessert without us even complaining or asking. She did it because our meals took a few mins longer than it should have, we didn't even notice that it was taken long. The miso glazed salmon is amazing and they make the bananas foster next to your table which is pretty neat to watch."

  • "Been to Riverview several times and as the times before the service and food were exceptional. A nice place to enjoy a quiet dinner with family and friends. Must have the Banana Foster."

  • "Riverview has become our favorite restaurant over the last several years. The food is always top notch, and the service is always friendly. As a music lover I always appreciate the live jazz piano. Our favorite is Craig Bidondo and his bass player Tim on Sunday nights. Top notch players with winning personalities too! We always like to take a stroll by the gazebo after dinner or go on the deck and look at the river go by. The dessert menu is delicious too. I rarely save room for dessert, but I do here! Perfect sizes for two people to share and get their fill. A beautiful drive along the historic highway just east of troutdale and you're there. I love this place!"

  • "I've been to Riverview a few times now, and this was by far the worst visit. Waiter was fine, if not a little over friendly, but fine. Wine was good, but the food was cold! It was literally Luke warm at best. The appetizer (supposed to be warm) was cold with cold bread sticks. Our entrees came out so fast, we were pleased until we started eating. I had the halibut, and the cream cheese sauce was congealed on top, like it had been sitting in the window a while. Broccolini was also Luke warm, as were the mashed potatoes. Ended with the creme brûlée...again, not good at all. Very flavorless, which surprised me based on the description from the menu. My friend and I decided to find another restaurant for our future nights out."

  • "Picked Riverview for a summer evening of dining on the deck with friends from the West side. They had never been. We were so elated at how impressed they were, not only with the food, but the ambience and service. Always impressive for us as this is our 'special' place to celebrate even the smallest occasion. Thank you Cassie for your stellar service!"

  • "Ambiance gets the highest rating, with attractive physical facility in a natural setting and exceptional entertainment by a piano/bass duo this Sunday evening. Menu offerings are varied, but quality of food was inconsistent. My miso salmon was moist & flavorful, but the generous bed of wild rice tasted like it had been warmed over from the previous day & the ration of sauted vegetables was nondescript."

  • "Booked this location for a 27th wedding anniversary. As a party of three we tried the prime rib, halibut, and shrimp. The food was fine but not anything to get excited about. The halibut came with wild rice. It was a pasty purple flavorless mess. The prime rib was good but the order was for medium rare and it was delivered medium. The Yukon gold mashed potatoes were great and should have been added to the halibut plate. The shrimp with scallops was flavorful. We ordered a bottle of wine and it had lots of clear crystals from the cork in it. Lastly I personally asked the front desk for a dessert to be brought to the table for the anniversary couple but the waiter never got the message. It was almost perfect, almost."

  • "The calamari is a MUST ands is cooked to perfection! It is completely tender and delicious. Pink Pearl cocktail is wonderful. The bacon wrapped filet and Kobe sirloin have the texture of velvet, barely needing a knife. Everything tasted phenomenal!"

  • "We had a super nice Father's Day dinner at the Riverview! So much better this time than our last dining experience. They evidently changed their chef so our food was what we expected this time...marvelous! We had halibut with a creamy sauce with shrimp, a NY steak, and grilled chicken caesar salad. All very good! The dessert was the strawberry pistachio cake and a tiramisu. Outstanding! We will definitely be back when the weather warms up so we can take advantage of the wonderful outdoor seating along the river. A go-to place if you're in the rural Troutdale area!"

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food was below average and for the price, I was a bit disappointed. I ordered the prawns and scallops. Flavor was average at best and prawns were more like small shrimp and had no flavor. Scallops were very small. Another in my party ordered skewered fish and a few pieces of fish and shrimp dipped in batter and bread crumbs and deep fried which totally hid the flavor of an already unflavorful fish. ambiance was amazing but most of the food was not good at all. I brought a party of 7 and wont return."

  • "Everything was very good and the service great. The only thing wrong was that left doors open and the gnats came in and were a bother. Once we asked them to close the doors the gnats finally left."

  • "We have been to Riverview 3 times and each time we go, we always say to ourselves that we should go there more often. The service is always friendly and efficient, the flavor profiles are really enjoyable, they have a nice variety of menu options and the deck/patio is wonderful! It's well worth the drive to enjoy this great restaurant."

  • "We had less than memorable experience back in January with service, food etc lacking in quality. The manager responded to this report and asked us to give restaurant another try. We went on Saturday and the place was busy but the issues from last time were not present. Server was pleasant and we enjoyed a lovely meal . We certainly felt it was worth the second visit."

  • "We took my daughter and husband to Riverview for a special occasion. They had never been there prior. The dinners were outstanding! Everyone was pleased and enjoyed every last bite. They are living out of town but she grew up in east county. She said, as we were leaving, that she finally found an upscale restaurant in east county! We started with a table on the deck which was pleasant. However, it soon became chilly and bugs came out!! We immediately were offered an inside table which was just as nice. Thank you Riverview!"

  • "My husband and I wanted to treat my mom for a great mothers day meal. I made the reservation online with ease. We arrived and parking was good. We were offered to dine inside or out and at first we choose outside but I have didn't have sunglasses, so we decided on inside. The wait staff was very good and attentive to our needs. The ambiance was nice with live music and all. The food was excellent! So many choices! Everything I ate was delicious. I even tried some of my husband's salmon, and I'm not really a salmon eater but it was good. Unfortunately we ate to much good food we forgot to save room for the desserts, and they all looked good. We finished up with a scenic walk on the grounds. "

  • "The restaurant is open and inviting with lots of natural lighting, a subtly thematic style, live background music that doesn't make conversation difficult, and exceptionally good food. Our family enjoyed a very nice Mother's Day dinner, with exceptionally well done entrees, overall, although the Thai coconut prawns seemed slightly underdone. I asked for my excellent prime rib to come with mushroom risotto vs. garlic mashed and my wish was granted and above expectations. Cassie, our server, was very enthusiastic and served us quite well. This was my third visit and a memorable one. The piano, bass cello duet served up some exceptional variations on everything from Beethoven and Leonard Cohen to the Platters and was pleasant in every respect."

  • "We needed a restaurant for a party of 5. The benefit of Open Table allowed me to view availability. So pleased Riverview was available. I was the only one who had dined there before so I was nervous if other members would like. THEY LOVED it. The sophistication - piano music of beautiful songs - lent a sophistication. The waiter was wonderful - treated us as though we were special - whether we ordered the most expensive item (some of us did) or a lesser expensive meal. The food was AMAZING - but it always is when I dine there. "

  • "This has become one of our favorite special-occasion spots, and we are always completed delighted by the experience. Great location and gorgeous setting are matched by the quality of the food and the overall dining experience. Comfortable, laid-back, welcoming, creative cooking and presentation ... I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that we will be back again and again."

  • "We had a wonderful experience celebrating a very special birthday. We sat outside and enjoyed lovely guitar music and a great evening. Our waitress was beyond wonderful. My steak was overcooked and a new one came that was cooked perfectly. At the end we saw that I was not charged for my entree! What an unexpected but perfect way to keep us coming back. Very professional and we couldn't have asked for a better evening!"

  • "We spent a lovely evening at Riverview Restaurant, introduced to us by a Travel Zoo purchase. The food was good and the ambiance was very nice. Eating out on the deck was probably lovely, but we chose to eat inside by the window, because I wanted to be certain I would be warm enough. I think the food was a little pricey, but the coupon made it more affordable. "

  • "We arrived early for our 6:00PM reservation thinking we would have a drink outside since the weather was so nice. Instead the hostess sat us outside for our drinks and dinner away from the Happy Hour crowd. The service was great (our server Patrick was friendly, knowledgeable and quick), the food was great with decent portions. "

  • "The view of the Sandy river is wonderful. The ambience of the restaurant is warm and welcoming. Live, soft guitar music did not interfere with table conversation. The food was served hot and was acceptable. The only complaints are that the lettuce ws a little tired (brown) and the dressing portion was scant. The Caesar salad, on the other hand, was exceptional! Entrees were passable, though we found the garlic-mashed potatoes very heavy and dry. "

  • "Riverview Restaurant was a nice alternate for our annual Easter Brunch. The live music with the Bass and Piano added that perfect touch to the atmosphere. The plates were on the spendy side for the quality of the food, but there was a large selection to choose from. This might become our new "special occasion" site. Thank you!"
