    Food, ambiance, and service were excellent. We had Caesar salad and oysters for appetizers. I had the crab cakes, which were served with a salad dressed with a delicious vinaigrette. My spouse had the veal ragu on pappardelle and he raved about it. For dessert, we split a crème brûlée which was great. The only negative is that we felt rushed. We enjoy a few minutes between courses. Twice I was asked if I wanted my plate cleared when I was still eating.

    Had a great dinner at Riuska. The restaurant was perfect. Beautiful atmosphere, beautiful colors, loved looking up and seeing the chandeliers hanging on third floor. Found out about the speakeasy. Although, there was a closed venue and we were not able to go up. A nice variety of dinners. Couldn't understand not finding something you like to eat. Definitely a place to experience and date night.

    Dining room experience really good. Food was excellent, server was great. Went upstairs to their speakeasy and stood patiently at the end of the bar while 3 bartenders worked. After 15 minutes of no eye contact or even a hello, I’ll be with you in a minute, I walked out and spent my money elsewhere. Nothing worse than bartenders who deliberately will not left their head and pay attention. A shame and a real damper to an otherwise great dinner.

    Great food,service, and ambience. The sommelier is extremely knowledgeable about the mostly Italian wine list. The rooftop bar and the speakeasy are also worth a visit.

    The food was good, not great. The calamari appetizer was tough, and had hardly any batter. The fish was very good, the shrimp franchise was ok but a bit bittter. I expected much better quality for the price level, which is high end for northeast Pa.

    Great dinner. My wife and I split the surf and turf. Steak and lobster were cooked perfectly. I had a Caesar salad and we shared TIramisu both of which were great. The drinks also were excellent. Our friends enjoyed their dinner as well. All in all a great dinner. Good value.

    The overall experience fell a bit short mainly due to the inattentiveness of our server. I went my entire meal almost without a refill or even asking how our food was. That being said, the food was 10/10 and the atmosphere, though a little too loud, was nice and overall enjoyable. I just feel for the price, the server would have been better. Nonetheless, I will visit again and just hope to have better service.
