  • "Riverview Restaurant is a wonderful outdoor dining experience in the summer because of the great view and beautiful water and trees surrounding the restaurant and is wonderful in the winter because of the ambience inside. I love the fireplaces and the piano playing. When dining in the summer, it is a great place to take children as you can walk them around in the gardens. The food is delightfully prepared and delicious as well."

  • "First time dining experience for my wife and I celebrating our 11th anniversary. I made reservations well in advance and asked that we be given a preferred location, but they failed to reserve a good table with a view. Service was MUCH to be desired. Food took a long time to come out. When it did, it was the wrong food/plate. The server recorded it wrong and admitted to it. We didn't want to wait for them to cook the correct meal so we shared one plate. They gave us dessert for free though (took forever!). We grew increasing frustrated how long it took for our server to check on us. We sat not eating our dinner (since one plate wasn't ours) for probably 5 minutes before someone even noticed and checked on us. Also screwed up the check."

  • "On a Wednesday night, with a reservation, we had to wait 15mins to be seated... The service was very slow, the soups arrived without the bread and the bread took its time finding our table, but it was good! We ordered the Halibut and Ravioli. The Ravioli was slightly undercooked and the oil had separated from the sauce. The Halibut was very, very overcooked and the jasmine rice very bland. The waiter took the fish and promised to bring another, but after 20mins we finally asked the buss boy for the check. The Halibut was not charged and before we left the waiter handed us a to go box with a new Halibut meal, with an apology. We were there for just over 90mins! For the price, the quality and portion sizes are just not realistic."

  • "We especially enjoyed the calamari appetizers, some of the best ever. Our waiter, Andrew, was friendly & efficient. Outside seating with live piano music & a view of the river was quite nice. Our favorites were the steaks, ravioli, cobbler & carrot cake! We will definitely return."

  • "We found Riverview Restaurant through Groupon. My husband and I went there the weekend before our wedding, it was a great place for romantic dinners and special occasions. The ambiance was lovely and the service was awesome."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "This was a very yummy surprise! The best steak we have every had in our lives. Very nice overall experience with the river seating view, wonderful service, and excellent meals. Can't wait to go back for happy hour next."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The view and ambience is awesome. The food was mediocre. Service was good but if you are in any kind of a hurry, this is not the place for you. Overall a nice experience as long as you don't set your expectations too high about the food."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Our first visit was awesome, and we'll be back soon. Tuesday (our server) was awesome. Food was well worth the moderately high price."

  • "Wonderful food and view of the Sandy River. Service was very good even as busy as he was. Lots of personality. Appetizers-Excellent, lots of flavor. Dinner was wonderful. Will go back."

  • "Great restaurant in a lovely setting. Appetizer was so-so but main entree was delicious. Good service. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We'd been there before for happy hour, which was very tasty and well priced. Dinner was nice, mainly because of the service and venue. The prices are fair for what you get. My only complaints are the halibut was cooked well but over sauced for such a nice piece of fish and the prime rib was an ok cut of meat prepared well enough. A better quality cut of meat would have made it a great meal. All in all, we'll be back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "This is the third time my wife and I have gone there, each time we go it is great and personal! Riverview has become the go to place for our anniversary dinner date and the times we feel like getting dressed up to go out, no you don't have to but we do anyway! The weekdays is more informal as the weekends!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The food was a little pricey but very good. The homemade loaves of bread were delicious. If you have time to hang around and enjoy whoever you are eating with, this is a great place. If you are wanting to grab a quick bite to eat and be on your way...not so much. We were a little disappointed that the table we had reserved seemed to have been taken by the owner who decided to dine there at the last minute (that table was near the windows were the view would have been much better). The service was good, and the live musicians were good and friendly. Wait staff were accomodating."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We've eaten here several times and are never sorry. The consistency of the preparation and quality of food plus the special attention from the wait staff make this one of the best experiences in the greater Portland area!"

  • "The restaurant has a lovely deck overlooking the Sandy River and it was nice to see the people floating by below on their rafts and kayaks. But, that was the end of its charms. Our waiter greeted us by telling us that Prime Rib was the special of the day, but, someone in the kitchen must have been asleep since it was definitely overcooked, medium well and over. I asked if the scallops in a dish were bay or sea, was told sea, got bay. Then when the bay scallops arrived, they were smothered in rosemary, no essence of scallops left what-so-ever. The appetizers were flat, uninteresting. Therefore, if you want a drink, a nice view and shade, this is the spot. If you want good food too, it is not."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food was excellent. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the view."

  • "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."

  • "Lovely gem tucked away in the woods. Food is great and service is wonderful!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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!"

  • "What special way to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Had a great time - the location, food and service was fabulous."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "Very nice place, excellent service, and the food was great. Our waiter, Andrew was very helpful in recommending and very attentive with out hovering. We celebrated our 56th wedding anniversary and being there was special. We will be back."

  • "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."
