    Very nice dinner. The food was excellent. The service was quite good until it was time to get the check which took a bit longer than I would have liked. There were three of us at dinner, we all ordered different things and we all really liked the food. The bread was warm and quite tasty.

    We dined on a Saturday night, bridging the pre-theatre crowd, and stayed to hear the live jazz quartet. Service was prompt and solicitous. The food came out at our pace, nice!! Meats were cooked perfectly. The Gigondas was ideal for the meal. To complete the evening, we stayed to listen to live jazz, including excellent guest vocalists. Hats off to Thibaud and his team!!

    if you want a French restaurant experience, this is the place to try. It is located on West 46th street in Restaurant row. It has a nice laid-back feeling when you walk in, and the service is polite and excellent. The menu offers many choices in the appetizer, entree and dessert categories for a reasonable price. We had the bisque and seafood crepe as well as the short ribs with petite vegetables and mashed potatoes. For dessert we had the bread pudding and NY cheesecakes. All were ample portions and delicious while not making you fell over filled. If you want to try French cuisine and are in NYC, try Le Rivage. You won't be disappointed.

    The food was delicious! The service needed work. We weren’t clear who was our waiter for the first 15 mins. We waited for someone to come to our table, although plenty of staff passed our table and some even stood and looked at us but didn’t say or do anything. Once someone arrived they didn’t introduce themselves or even say “hello” or “welcome”. They asked us for a drink order, which then took another 10 mins to come out. Then as he dropped the drinks off he left again without taking our food order. We had to wait another 10 mins just to place an appetizer order. The live music was good, and the food, again, was absolutely fantastic. It is just disappointing the service didn’t match the quality of the food or atmosphere.

    Tasty food paired with quick and efficient service makes this an excellent choice for pre-theater dining. The wine list is limited but well suited to the menu. During peak hours, it can be a bit loud in the dining room. It’s worth noting that the restaurant’s interior is every bit as beautiful as it appears in their website's photo gallery; the ambience is excellent.

    Could not ask for more. We were received very friendly way, and given a very nice table. The service was excellent and the price fix menu is fantastic. We had the escargot and the seafood crêpe which were nicely presented And were a joy to eat. For the entrée we had the lamb shank and the beef Bourguignon, which we enjoyed. Both meats were very tender, and a very flavorful sauce. I appreciate their attendance attention to the fact that we had theater tickets.

    Not really French, the Coq au vin was a half chicken roasted with sauce poured on top. Overpriced and underwhelming, tourist trap!
    Le RivageResponded on April 4, 2024
    Dear Sarah Rouf, we are very sorry for your disappointing review, unfortunately, we cannot disagree with you more, our coq au vin recipe is closer to 200 years old and is the very original recipe that has been passed down through many generations . It is marinated in red wine, roasted, and seared and traditionally cooked in our red wine sauce. We also take offense to your tourist trap comment, you didn’t make any mention of this during your meal when we could have replaced or adjusted the situation, in stead you chose to be anonymous and hide behind a keyboard.

Just the right amount of butter and white wine, plump, and no sand.  ambience was terrific, loved all of the beautiful paintings on the wall. Cozy with a big touch of class.  staff was very attentive and professional. Will definitely visit again.
