Andrew our server was the best!For a wonderful meal, piano music in the background, beautiful setting and the best service, please visit this restaurant..
I didnt know it existed and was told by a friend that I had to visit.
Andrew our server was the one of the best I have had...We will definately be going again and telling all of our friends!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful for a special occasionAs a special treat we invited two of our friends to one of our favorite restaurants. Even though the weather precluded dining outside we were not disappointed in the view as we were seated with a very clear view of the scenic Sandy River. Our server was knowledgable and attentive and the salmon was prepared very nicely. It was a leisurely and pleasant time and we would definitely return.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExpectationsThis was our first time dining here and we went with another couple as a last minute date. When we arrived, they were ready with al the requests from our reservation. The experience was perfectly wonderful, relaxing and a great spot to enjoy an evening with friends. The food was excellent and well priced, the service exceptional, and the atmosphere lovely. We will certainly be back with family and friends.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous locationWe ate on the patio overlooking the river. The location couldn't be more beautiful and the service was impeccable. The Miso Salmon was very good as was the New York steak. My daughter had the ribeye steak. She ordered medium rare and got medium well. Her verdict was that it was more Outback quality than what the price should have warranted. My grandson loved his cheesecake dessert but the salted caramel torte my daughter and I had was, unfortunately, food service grade. The salted caramel was good, but the chocolate cake was dry and flavorless. The prices at this restaurant are on the high side, so they should take care that the food is worth it. We will definitely go back and hope the chef was just off that night.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great Service!First time coming here. The food was EXCELLENT. The server was very friendly. Laid back atmosphere. We had a couple of cocktails, and they were made perfectly! You knew they were adult beverages, but the alcohol wasn't overpowering. Had the Caprese Salad, Ahi Tuna, Seafood Tower and Carrot Cake. All were to die for. Sitting out on the patio was perfect. Could hear the piano from inside, but with a wonderful view. We'll definitely be back.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful settingWonderful food in a beautiful setting - it couldn't have been lovelier. We absolutely enjoyed the evening.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf it hadn't been fora Living Social offer I might have never found this wonderful restaurant. I am so glad I did. Not only did I go on Saturday, but I was back on Sunday. The design of the restaurant is wonderful: floor to ceiling windows that look out onto a deck and onto the Sandy river, beautiful light fixtures, the tableware is elegant in its simplicity, the servers all look spiffy The landscaping is beautiful. Full grown and very tall trees in all their glory and then garden areas. Wonderful menu, the food was delicious and was a sight to behold!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgood eveningWe went for my birthday. It was a great evening and experience.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTuesday was a great server!Tuesday was a great server! We always enjoy the quality of food and the variety of choices on the menu. Seafood choices are always surprisingly tasty. Nice selection of beer and wine. The decor and the outside view is worth the trip in itself!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrate in styleThis place always meets my expectations for a romantic atmosphere. I am also very proud to show it off to our out of town relatives.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a dark and stormy night.in late May, love Oregon. Sat by the windows and watched the trees whip around and the rain pelt down. Great food, excellent service and a talented pianist in the background. A evening made very nice despite the outside climes. I had the special of the night, a gumbo and it was delicious. Salad was fresh and attractive with an ample serving of dressing.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNice getawayThe restaurant is right along the river, hence its name. Unfortunately, we went on a rainy day. Nice seating area on an outside deck overlooking the river and surrounded by trees all around for a secluded feel. Big ceiling-to-floor windows to enjoy the view. Live music by a guitarist provided nice instrumental dinner music to set the mood. Our waiter was attentive and had a sense of humor. The food was simply delicious. My fiance and I were celebrating our 3 year anniversary and this was the perfect place. Will definitely come back for more special occasions, or when we want a fancy dinner away from everything.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!We have been to Riverview before and this time did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the service was good as well. Personally, I find the noise level too high when the piano is being played but beyond that, I love this restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great service....excGreat food and great service....excellent for summer dinning on the poatio outdoors5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Excellent service and food! My only concern was that I felt the music was a little too loud, however we were sitting right under the speaker outside. Great music anyway though!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Find!We went to the Riverview Inn for my birthday dinner. Had not been there before.............what a fantastic place! Since the weather was mild we sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed the view overlooking the Sandy River. The New York Steak was very delicious but my favorite was the spinach salad. My husband had clam chowder and said it was the best he has had. We'll definitely be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGotta Go BackEverything about our visit there was great. We had no expectations, which made it even more lovely. Ed was great. The selections were good. Although, they were out of two of the menu items, there still were choices, we could pick from. We had three different plates and each of us really enjoyed what we had. Will definitely make plans to go back and bring friends and family.
Thank you.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat ambiancei went when the weather was perfect to eat outdoors. the wind and the birds made it feel very soothing, i loved the way the you can have a conversation without noticing there are people surrounding you.

The staff was friendly and the view was great. I had the Salmon Spread appetizer, which was delicious. I also had the greek salad and the Sesame Ahi, and it was just ok. I would recommend this restaurant, although I might not recommend the Ahi dish. My dining partner loved his meal.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best kept secretsOne of the best kept secrets in Portland. The food is excellent, servers well trained and are professional. This was our 5th visit in the last year and I would highly recommend it for a romantic dinner, great happy hour, beautiful views, and the best outdoor seating in the Portland area. Beautiful setting just a few miles from major highways.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe whole dining experienceThe whole dining experience at Riverview Restaurant is amazing! Great food and service in a very relaxing atmosphere!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMUsed a Groupon. The ambianceUsed a Groupon. The ambiance is quite nice with great scenery and beautiful grounds. Live piano music was an added treat. Excellent patio/deck for those summer evenings. Very nice menu and wine list. This is really a hidden gem.
We were a party of 2 and had an appetizer, salad, 2 entrees and a couple glasses of wine and beer. The tab came to $86.00 before the Groupon. We felt like it was a good value. The staff are very nice and professional. Get out of the city and give them a chance.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe setting is gorgeous, theThe setting is gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the service was attentive but not overbearing. This was a perfect setting for a romantic birthday celebration. We now count this among our local favorites.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing gourmet dining w/ a view.The Riverside restaurant offers many tables with scenic viewing of the Sandy river. Often with live piano, our latest experience included a bass fiddle accompaniment. Their wine selection is superb, and menu contains several unique and gourmet selections. The atmosphere is very inviting / romantic. There are several outdoor tables, which are used during the summer months. Wood fire pits add to the atmosphere. The restaurant has a large parking area, and beautiful flower gardens, of which you can tour. There is a room, adjacent to the larger dining room, where private parties can be accommodated.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience all around!Excellent food and wine, romantic ambiance, to die for carrot cake!!

The food is very good. The piano is played softly in the background. The view of the river is relaxing. Can be seated inside or out. A great place for date night or casual business meeting.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Best ResturantsOne of the Best Resturants in Oregon....Love it....3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first experience hereOur first experience here was marginal at best. The food was good, but our service was atrocious. We had a groupon so decided to give Riverview one more chance. This was a totally different experience. The food was great. But most is all, our server, Tuesday , was the antithesis of the server on our previous visit. She was amazing, and made the evening most enjoyable.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFor some, the ambiance, service,For some, the ambiance, service, and setting (wooded, next to a small river) might be enough to offset the mediocre food. My wife and I went last Friday and were immediately impressed with the location and then with the service. However, when the food arrived we both thought it was ok, but definitely not worth the price. Our experience was that our meals were comparable to that offered by food chain dining restaurants (locally we both thought the fare was comparable to that offered by a Shari's). As a result, we were both disapointed with our experience. Due to the value, we probably won't return.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 3rd visit andThis was our 3rd visit and it keeps getting better and better. We love this place and celebrate all our special occasions here. Love the cheese ravioli with crab - yum!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening on Stark St.Reading prior reviews were curious????
