    The restaurant has been shut down for a number of months. If I could have given no stars that would have been a more accurate representation. My partner was not happy as it was her favourite restaurant and to travel a long distance and then be turned away was not great on her birthday.

    This restaurant had gone into receivership so we had a completely wasted journey. A very disappointing experience as had taken time off work to do this. Please take it off your listing

    Riva is a quality restaurant with a lovely setting overlooking the Thames. The food and service were both excellent it was just a shame that there were not more diners there to build a better atmosphere.

    Riva has a lovely outlook and is a great setting for dinner with friends. The menu choices are great contemporary dishes. The food preparation is of a very high standard and the service attentiveness the same. We love this place and will be back, a lovely place on the river in Gravesend.

    Very nice evening. Staff very polite. Service was very very slow, but didn’t detract from a lovely meal. Will love to return again at some point.
