Riva at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel is a New York influenced fine dining restaurant offering a five-course prix fixe menu, with a la carte options.

The five-course 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 made reservations in advance with open table to only find Riva closed when we arrived.

    Absolutely to avoid. The risotto with mushrooms for $48 is a tasteless dry mass of inedible totally overcooked rice. I sent it back after two bites but they did not discount it from the check. The branzino (you would assume the whole fish filet for over fifty dollars) is instead just one quarter of it. The $20 a glass red wine Nero D’Avola was served ice cold . The microscopic appetizers were served without providing silverware, the waiter justified himself stating usually people use their hands for it. We insisted we would use silverware instead. We then understood why on a Saturday night at 8PM with the hotel packed this restaurant was empty, actually one single person seating. People avoids this trap as the plague and you should too.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem. When we visited, it offered a tasting of the chef’s creations. Three courses and not a lot of selection. The restaurant itself seems to be placed in an unused conference room, so the ambiance was not really the best. The room itself was reminiscent of a 1990’s wedding venue, so I was skeptical going in. The staff is friendly and there are no airs from them. They make you feel at home in their place. Then we got the food and it was positively OUTSTANDING! Taste, presentation, plating, everything was simply perfect! I mean truly perfect. Taste combinations were amazing and the wine pairing worked very very well. Without being too over the top, I would say Michelin star quality food. Some negatives, the ambiance that I already mentioned and the price. It’s really hard to find a wine that’s below $200 on the wine list. Also, while you can dine a la carte (and it will be cheaper) the tasting was $145 per person when we went. So, our bill was well north of $500 for two people. Just be prepared. If you’re just looking for a steak, go to the Meat Market next door. However, if you really love food that tastes and looks good made with top notch products, this is a must try. You will not be disappointed.

    Food is excellent and service is 5 stars. They have an a la cart menu in case you don’t want the 5 courses.

    We came from another hotel and it was our Anniversary. We showed up for dinner and it was closed. I understand things happen, they should have called and told us they would not be open. Very disappointing evening, had to pay $32 for valet parking and getting dinner reservations at 7:00 was not possible as other restaurants were booked. Ending up eating pizza in the lobby. We were going to book this hotel the Fairmont as well for our next trip but decided not to after this experience, we will try the Vanderbilt instead.

    This was a confusing dining experience. The Fairmont lobby is amazing with over the top vibrancy, energy and ambiance. RIVA feels to be a converted conference room - lacking the same guest experience as the rest of the Fairmont. The price is $$$$ and the food taste was "good" - but it's lacking in ambiance, vibe and overall experience you would expect at this price point.

    The fixed price menu was a little pricey but it was worth it. By far the best food we have had in Puerto Rico . Amazing home made Bellinis with caviar, unbelievable canapés then truffled mushroom risotto. Followed by branzino or filet mignon. Exceptional service and an extensive (a little overpriced) wine list. All in all we were very glad to make this our big meal on the last night of our visit,
