Wonderful service. Nice to be outside overlooking Navy pier. Same wonderful food although not as elegant as upstairs but understandable in the pandemic
Great place ! Service was amazing .. food was okay
The food was delicious, and the view was amazing! We sat on the second floor next to the windows that overlook the lake facing south. The service was very professional and attentive. The restaurant even has two ornate sinks in the middle of the restaurant to make it convenient for patrons to wash their hands!
Goal as food and as always Gina and her crew offer good service
The view from the restaurant is very nice, but the service and food quality was poor. We waited a very long time for lunch and then they brought us the wrong food. After it had sat in front of me for a few minutes (while we looked for ANY server) they took the food back and then delivered it to the table that had actually ordered it. Kind of disgusting in the days of COVID. They also didn't apologize and the server we actually finally flagged down to help seemed annoyed that we had asked for help. When I finally got the meal that I had actually ordered, they forgot to dress the salad and that was another wait for help. Very poor experience for the price of the restaurant.
Dinner was excellent. The service by Michele was outstanding! A wonderful evening.
The steak was very tough and kept getting stuck in my teeth. Was very disappointed. I traveled an hour just to eat there
It was so fun to be outside !! Great service!! Loved it
I loved it here, great view great food what more could you ask for? I definitely will be returning the Mac and cheese was 🔥. This place has much better food than Offshore next door service wasn’t so bad either!
The service was good the food wasn’t even mediocre. We had the special ribeye and lobster tail. They were both over cooked
Every was great I feel like lunch and dinner menu should be combined. And dessert menu never got it. Ravioli should be back but I loved my experience at your restaurant
The food was great. They handle the Covid restrictions well. The service was wonderful. Great place!
Great experience. Everything was fresh and delicious, restaurant was very clean. The chopped salad had a dressing that was soooo tasty. Shrimp was great. Peggy, our waitress, was very sweet, helpful and attentive. She held a great conversation with us, much appreciated. Highly recommend
We went there for a birthday on July 4th. After we made a reservation for an outside sitting when went to the restaurant we were told that they didn’t offer outside sitting although we were asked when called to confirm if we wanted indoor or outdoor sitting. The waiter was good but when we ordered the deluxe grill, we had to return the meat as it was well done when we asked for medium rare and the rest was like eating sponge and rubber. The best thing was the sides. I would not recommend for special occasions but the sides were amazing
Halibut was egregiously overcooked and dry. My seafood salad had no crab meat. Overall, very unsatisfactory. Yet memorable because of how bad it was; almost laughable.
My fiancé enjoyed her meal and the service was great
Outdoor venue does not meet specifications or level of service
Tim was our sever and he was great! The food was delicious! Recommend the Calamari and Crab stuffed Lobster.
It was a great place, delicious food and amazing atmosphere. A little pricy but as long as you are expecting it, well worth it! Our server was great! Overall amazing experience and probably one of the best views of Chicago you will get!
This place is great for any occasion. I will be going back soon.
Enjoyed crab cakes with granddaughters visiting from California, which is a tradition!
Nice Father’s Day treat. Five of us outside eating delicious food and drinks again. Picky son had a tasty steak. Mom and Dad an amazing spicy noodle scallops sausage thing that we ate for left overs the next day. Daughter gave thumbs up to fish and chips.
Glad we are opening up our City and really enjoyed Riva.
We had the sampler dinner. Steak, shrimp, crab and scallops. All were great. Night was beautiful. Service was great.
Halibut was dry, old. No bread offered.
You pay for the view. I thought the crab cakes were great and my waitress was wonderful. However, the skin was left on the fish and chips and I thought that was odd. Besides the crab cakes nothing was really worth how much it cost. Like I said, you pay for being able to eat on the lake at navy pier.
Your staff was fantastic! It was so cold and your staff was kind enough to let us use tablecloths to keep warm! Incredible service!!!
Not only is the food and ambience always as stellar as the views of the Chicago shoreline, but the folks from Stefani's who own Riva are generous in their support of industry initiatives and charitable concerns. You can count on doing business with a company that is totally invested in their community, not just taking your money.
Had the mixed grill. Lobster was very small, there was a single shrimp, filet was overcooked and was not very good quality. There was an ample portion of crab legs which was the high point.
Ere was a price reduction in connection with Shakespeare theater, but it was still overpriced based on the poor quality of the lobster and beef.

Perfect ending to an afternoon of theater--we love the view, the bread basket, Caesar salad, fresh fish, the refreshing key lime pie and the service.
Thank you Cody! Your visit meant the world to us, and we appreciate you sharing your feedback. We wish you well! -Eugene
Riva is consistent: very good seafood, well prepared; friendly service; nice view; and a good value. It is not trendy, but quite reliable. An excellent choice before or after Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
Thank you William, we are grateful for your support, and wish you well! -Eugene
Great food and ambiance. Great pre-theater dinner option. Right next to Shakespeare theater
Thank you Irina! We are truly grateful for the opportunity to have served you. Wishing you well, and thinking of you. -Eugene Mori
The food, service, and general ambience of this restaurant are equal to the magnificent view of the city. It's well worth the money.
John, Thinking of you and wishing you well! We truly appreciate you, and we are grateful for your business. Be well! -Eugene Mori
Met a couple friends here for dinner before seeing a show at Shakespeare Theater. Dinner was very good, but it wasn’t quick getting to us. Our server Jaime was excellent! Great view of the City.
Donna, Thank you for visiting and sharing! We are thinking of you, and wish you well. I shared with Jaime, and he says Hello! -Eugene Mori
There was a group of 10 and the service was wonderful. Everyone was served very close together. They were kind enough to give us separate checks. Which works out great for our group. Thanks
Claire, Thank you for choosing Riva! On behalf of our entire team, we hope you are well, and we are thinking of you. Thank you -Eugene Mori
Riva has a beautiful dining room, excellent and delicious luncheon selections and appropriately attentive service.
Thank you Duchess. We are beyond grateful for your business. We are hoping you are safe and well. Thank you for visiting! -Eugene Mori
We had wonderful experience on a Sunday evening! Food was excellent! Our waiter was so sweet and helpful, he made a suggestion to my young daughter on how to get to the meat from a lobster claw! Thanks for the tip!
Thank you Shan! We appreciate you, and wish you well. -Eugene
Riva- as always - is a fabulous precursor to a show!
