Riva at Fairmont El San Juan
The experience will start with some light bites followed by a choice of appetizers, selection of a handmade pastas, entrée and dessert.
The Art Deco inspired design can be felt all around from the décor to the plating and glassware. Attention to detail and excellence in both dining and service will make your evening one to remember.
Looking forward to hosting you soon!

We were confused when we first arrived,we were walkes into a hotel area that looked more like a meeting room instead of a cozy romantic restaurant,other than that food is good for its price.Its a chef's menu consisting of 5 courses and service was on point.
Really enjoyed our dinner here at Riva. Their 5 course tasting menu was fantastic, can’t wait to come back to try the dishes we didn’t select. Service was outstanding and wine list very impressive as well. Can’t miss this if traveling to San Juan.
Best risotto of my life! Will definitely come back!
Great atmosphere and very attentive staff. It is my new favorite restaurant in PR
Riva is a MUST!
Trendy. Elegant. Class. Delicious. Everything that you would want from a dining experience. From the chic decor to upscale presentation, you will enjoy a five star overall experience. The owners and chef have done a wonderful job with curating the perfect tasting menu, not to mention having a well versed team to deliver a great product. It’s a glimmer of NYC within the diamond of Puerto Rico.
Everything was great!
Good food. The ambiance has improved, but it needs more work. The lighting is too bright and the main room needs some work.
Ambiente frío en términos de decoración y la mesa no tenía los servicios de mesa elegante.
La comida excelente.
Outstanding once again. Highly recommend.
We went to have dinner with our 4 yo daughter. We were pleasantly surprised by the fine dinning experience. The recently opened restaurant by an NYC chef, offered a modest, but carefully curated wine list to create a perfect “maridaje” for the menú. You can choose between a 3 or 5 course dinner. I went for the 3 course thinking that 5 dishes would be too much food. However the delicate “bites” of the the first five course dinner is a must! The owner came out to cater our picky eater and made the perfect pasta with butter and cheese plate. Riva is a must in PR!
El plato principal no estaba al nivel y calidad del servicio, pescado gomoso , no tenia sabor ...
The service and food was absolutely amazing. There is one room off to the side where we were originally seated that was a little sad in ambience. When the staff intuited our concern, they moved us immediately. We absolutely loved it -- was a terrific meal!
second time here, exquisite service & attention to detail. Food is 5 stars
Food was awesome! My veal was cooked perfectly. Great wine list with many older selections. 10/10
Simply amazing! Food and service were great!
Truly phenomenal service. Food was rich and decadent, perfect for a vacation. Ambience is a little sparse as the restaurant is configured for COVID times, but would still highly recommend.
Excellent Michelin quality food and amazing service. 5 course tasting well worth price. Must eat in San Juan!!!
Our waiter was excellent, the multiple waiters asking for our service was a bit overwhelming at times
Our experience did not live up to the 5-star ratings. Only the service was excellent. The food and ambiance were average. The room feels like a hotel conference room with tables spread around, with the cold lighting also contributing to the unimpressive atmosphere. The food was ok; my veal loin was about one-third fat. The wine selection skews expensive, with few good options for less than $100.
Great service, great food. Decoration and ambience has to be improved
Very happy with the food and service.Great attentive staff!
Amazing experience all around! Dishes were so complimentary to each other. Great mix of flavors and textures in each course. Will never forget how smooth cutting the filet mignon was, it was cooked truly too perfection. The chocolate dessert was so tasty, I thought of ordering another one yet contained myself. The restaurant has a minimalistic yet elegant ambiance, great for an intimate dinner. Also, their wine list is fenomenal and deverse! Lorenzo, the waiter, was very attentive, informative and made me feel at home. Was greeted by Matthew and Mr. Miller, all were very welcoming. They said there menu changes about every 4 weeks to ensure freshness of ingredients; can't wait to visit again!
Excellent food and great service. Very accommodating to dietary requests.
Spectacular food and outstanding service. Beautiful dining room. Will return.
Excellent wine selection and the experience went beyond my expectations.
Phenomenal dinner here at Riva. The 5 course tasting was fantastic and the portions were perfect progressing throughout the meal. The canapés were very fun and a standout for me (those doughnut holes with foie gras 🤤). Service was outstanding from start to finish, never had to wait too long for the next course. Cannot wait to come back to try the other dishes. Exciting new restaurant on the island would highly recommend!
The food and the service were great. The tasting menu has very interesting dishes. However, the decoration is not up to the food and price.
The food is fantastic!!!
This restaurant has left the best impressions! Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation, wide wine list and wonderful dessert. I recommend to everyone! I would like to come back here again and again.
Our experience at the Riva was the best surprise. I made a last minute reservation here and luckily got in because it was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The service was impeccable and the staff could not have been nicer. They had just opened the place a few days before we dined with them so they were like a well oiled machine, checking on us and refilling our drinks and making sure anything we needed was brought out ASAP. We did the tasting menu and they were so good about timing everything perfectly and letting us know when the next dish would be out! The gnocchi was 10/10 and melted in my mouth and the only thing better was the pumpkin tortellini. Want to go back immediately!
