Went to Riva before attending a play at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre. The view of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier visitors, and the city are one of the best things about this restaurant. The service was good and ambiance was great. It's a bit pricey, though.

The service and the seafood! We had a huge platter of seafood that included lobster, crab and shrimp prepared perfectly and served beautifully. It was fresh and tasted like we were at the coast. The service was great, it was a good way to celebrate our 22 years of happiness!

The food was a decent amount. ...service was awesome!

The only items I really liked were the clam chowder & drinks. Although the special included large portions of the lobster, shrimp & crab, the meat wasn’t as fresh as I’d like to see. My Dad was a fisherman & I grew up with “oh-so-fresh” seafood! 😊 It was rather leathery & tough. For the price, it doesn’t come close to the taste of Red Lobster. The side dishes needed to be flavored more. Perhaps the chef should consider sauteing the spinach in garlic for more flavor. I’d also like to see the double baked potato added as a side. I had the raw oysters for an appetizer but would have preferred to have the option of having them cooked.

I have stopped at the bar on several occasions & had their wings & clam chowder which are always great! ...little disappointed in the taste of their seafood.

Riva is THE place for a special occasion like our valentines dinner! Waiter Tim was superbly professional, friendly and helpful with our menu choices. GracIous to take several pictures of us, especially with pier skyline behind us. The seabass is what I came for and it delivered: succulent bites of fresh moist sea bass flavor without tons of salt or other “spices”, and seared just right crust! Another must-have is the jumbo crab cake with huge chunks of crab to make you smile after every bite. Even the Caesar salad was prepared perfectly as we requested easy dressing and again fresh equals delicious! Although we are on a budget, we’re saving for another trip back to Riva! By the way, please bring back the lobster corn bisque soup ASAP LOL!
