The food was nothing special. The restaurant was cold inside (poor heating I guess). Then, with at least 6 tables open, we were made to wait over 40 minutes because they were backed up. They did buy us a round of drinks. Staff was very nice. Food came out slow and not worth the wait. Go somewhere else....

Shrimp was excellent. My wife had salmon and it was good. My fish and chips were good. Waiters did a nice job. View is great. Our dessert - a key lime cheesecake was poor. Coffee was poor and that is hard to do. Nice place for apps and a drink.

Went to the Riverview for breakfast. It's been a while since I was there last. Love the remodeled look and new menu. The wait staff is the greatest. Food was the best. I checked out their dinner menu - I'll be back for that.

Had a good meal at this restaurant. I will be sad when the view of the river will be blocked by the three or four story condos they’re building right in front of it :(

Much better than before. Prices were good and the portions very large. The restaurant is very pretty and clean. My only suggestion is to have a few more upscale items

Delicious food, amazing drinks, and a beautiful atmosphere. Service tends to be a little slow. You wait some time for your drinks and to order/receive your food. Overall it is worth the wait.

"I loved the open bright view of the river – like a view from a vacation destination. Free parking was a few steps from the door. The braised short ribs were amazing and the presentation was beautiful. Service was well-timed and friendly and a great affordable wine selection.I definitely would return to try more dishes. "

Drinks were not good. Bloody Mary was basically alcohol and tomato juice, no celery or horseradish or worcestershire sauce. Crackers served with soup were stale. But the biggest issue was the noise level. You could not carry on a conversation with the person seated across from you.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. They did however serve a dish missing an item, when I asked about it the waitress spoke to the chef who said they ran out. The dish was still great but I wish they told me that so I could decide if I still wanted it. They did compensate by taking it off the bill. Great restaurant would go again!

We tried Riverview again hoping things had improved. This wasn’t the case though. The service again was slow an inattentive. Our filets were requested as one medium and one medium well. Both were served and were both the same, very well done. We would really like to make this establishment one of our regulars but once again disappointed.

Do you remember Cafe Gallery? After it closed, a new restaurant took its location near the waterfront in Burlington. We decided to eat there on sept. 1as wehad fond memories of the old restaurant. The new place is called Riverview Restaurant, which is kind of obvious and true.
The truth is in the food and not the scenery or the easy parking. We saw barbequed spare ribs on the menu. A full rack was $30. We opted to have this serve two. They were cooked to perfection. A knife and fork could peel all the meat off the bones without having to pick up anything with fingers. We took a bit home because it was a big portion.
On the side were tasty mashed potato and corn. We asked for asparagus to replace the corn. Also there were very nice rolls and we started with alcoholic beverages. We like the servers too. Since critics are supposed to find at least one fault - the place is a bit noisy because the design uses hard wall materials. All in all, this was a pleasant experience.

The food was served cold after waiting more than 45 minutes from the time the order was placed. This was not our first time here. However, it will most likely be the last.

If you are sitting outside in the summer bring bug repellent . We had gnats flying above us and when the wind would blow even slightly they would fly right into our faces. They did seem to disappear though as night came.

Another very good meal at Riverview. Brought friends with us this time and they really enjoyed it too! Keep up the good work! Would like to see a few more specials since we go here often. Such a shame they are building housing that will block the view. Love this location and what this restaurant brings to the area. We will be back!

The server should let you know that the Seafood Bar does not come with a starch and/or veggy. You need to order these as a side, extra. For the price, you should have a choice included, of starch and/or veggy when ordering the protein. Without soft materials on the walls to absorb the sounds, this makes the noise very loud, it is hard talk to your dinner partner. It is a shame that the River view will be gone once the building it built.

First time at the Riverview. I expected much better food quality based on the reviews. We were there for lunch on a Saturday. I ordered a short rib sandwich which was to be prepared with onions, peppers, caramelized apples & bacon jam. There was only a minimal amount on the sandwich so none of the flavors came through. Very bland. Same for the truffle fries which was not worth the up charge. The waiter came from behind me and scooped up my plate without saying a word and before I was finished eating. All in all, it was not a good experience.

Overall, it was a very nice dining experience. I was treating a dear friend of mine out to lunch for her birthday. Both she and I enjoyed our cocktails, lunches, and dessert - their famous tiramasu - well deserving of its praise! The waiter was fantastic. It turned out to be a very special way to celebrate my friend's special birthday!

Good prices for happy hour drinks before dinner. My salmon on top of my salad was quite tasty. Prices were a bit high for the main dinners, but for a special occasion would be acceptable.

This was my second time at this restaurant. It wasnt busy this time but I had a reservation, just in case. The server was training someone, which was fine and we were willing to be patient. After taking our order they said the would be back with bread. At least 15 minutes went by before we could get either ones attention and ask for bread. The initial server eventually came back and said she would take over for the trainee. The food was good. My meal was small, a pasta with crab n calamari. The sauce was very good, but I was still hungry after finishing it. My friend got the 1/2 a chicken meal and took home leftovers. It was ok, it was better the first time I was there. We may go back..

The food was amazing in every way! We will returning soon to try more of their menu! We both had the short rib special and it was out of this world delicious! If it’s ever on the menu when visiting it’s a must order! The drinks were perfect and more importantly the waitress was perfect! She knew exactly what to suggest when we asking for recommendations!! The entire night was perfect!
