This was the second time we have tried Riverview Restaurant since they opened 3 years ago. The first time was within 6 months of them opening and it was a horrible experience from start to finish. We were there for more than 2 hours and in that time we received an appetizer and finally our main course. We had to stop random servers to get us things like water because our server just wasn’t paying attention.
We received a gift card for Christmas a couple of months ago from some friends and decided it was finally time to go back and try it again....after all, it has been 3 years! It’s hard to believe that we actually had the exact same problems and more. We had an early reservation, 6:00 and when we were seated we were one of only 2 tables in the dining room. We were seated at 5:55 and when we walked out at 8:17 we had again only had an appetizer and our main course. Refills of drinks were slow in arriving, like asking if we wanted refills and then 15 minutes later getting them. Everyone seated after us received all of their food well before we did. Our appetizer showed up after the 3 tables directly next to us received theirs....it was the same appetizer and they were all seated anywhere from 10-45 minutes after us!!
We finished our appetizer and waited another 45 minutes for our main course. We received an apology from our waitress about 10 minutes before our food finally arrived because she knew we had been there forever and still had no food. When our food arrived my steak was delicious but the mashed potatoes that came with it were barely warm. My husband was warned to be careful of the temperature of his bowl.....only to find out it was only warm at best.
We finished our dinner and were waiting for our dessert.....it was a set menu (1 appetizer, 2 entrees and 1 dessert for a fixed price). And we waited and waited and waited. My husbands dirty dinner dishes were never picked up and once again we watched as every table around us received their dessert and we
The salmon and steak were outstanding. Michael our server was very courteous and helpful. Thank you for a great experience. we will certainly return in the future.
Bartender mixed up a wonderful martini, he made it exactly to my liking!! Waitress was pleasant and friendly!! Food was good, my salmon (in a pastry) was slightly over cooked, everything else was delicious!! Second time dining there this week and it did not disappoint!!
We were a little surprised with the limited menu, especially that on a Saturday night, there were no specials. We had been here about a year ago, and I thought that there was a more extensive menu. What we had was very good, and reasonably priced. But it is a little loud.
Food was excellent! New menu has great variety.
Dined here to celebrate a birthday and since this was first time visiting this restaurant, we were not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and the waitress was outstanding. She was attentive and very friendly and made very good suggestions. The ambiance is great as we were seated next to the window overlooking the water. My only complaint is the parking. We had to park in a lot at the rear of the restaurant and the lighting is very poor. There is parking in the front but none was available. Will definitely dine there again.
a must go to again. food was excellent, waiter very nice. most comfortable chairs and the view was great. One of the coldest nights but so glad we went. we will definitely let our friends know. cannot wait till warmer weather to sit outside.
We had family from out of town join us for a birthday celebration. Riverview did not dissapoint, everyone raved how delicious the food was and enjoyed the ambiance. Very much enjoyed showing friends and family what Burlington has to offer so thank you!
Hostess...bartenders..waitstaff .. really nice and fun...down-to-earth and so accommodating. Very open feel...nice big windows..good view.. Unfortunately my appetizer dish was not good at all...sent it back, but I would definitely go back and try the food again. The place and the people are good enough to give it another go.
My husband and I are new to the area and decided to try this restaurant with a view of the river. The place was nice, service was fantastic and we enjoyed our time there. They had very reasonably priced wines also. The food... My husband had crab bisque and a seafood dish that he loved! I chose a flatbread and a side of Brussels sprouts. The sprouts were great! The flatbread was very oily and just ok. I think most of it home and it was actually better heated the next day. I would absolutely return, I just may not order the flatbread unless they cut the oil some.
Amazing place for Burlington Township, but the food quality is not consistent from when they first open. Some dishes are excellent and others not so much. Service is excellent and people are great.
Very disappointed. New Years Eve dinner was not good. Service was terrible, food was terrible. Only plus was the bartender made a great martini, but had to wait 20 mins for it at the bar.
We had a group of 6 for new years eve. We were promptly seated although we arrived a little late. The menu was limited for the holiday which we knew beforehand. Service was very good. We never felt rushed. The food was very good. Everyone in our group was pleased with their meals. We would consider this restaurant again for a special occasion.
A very nice experience! The place is open and cheery and the food was very good. Our waitress, Mercedes, was excellent—friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Overall, a great night!
Comfortable atmosphere. Not rushed and not ignored. Food was pretty good. Nice view of the river that is apparently going to be destroyed by condo/townhouse development in future.
The food was delicious and our service superb! Waitress was attentive but not intrusive. All six of us really enjoyed our food.
It was great!
2 hours to get 2 drinks and 2 entrees. Severely understaffed and not apologetic about it. I sent them a private Facebook message giving feedback and did not hear back from them. It’s a shame because the food is very good
We went there for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. The food was excellent: the calamari was among the best we've had; soup was outstanding, younger set loved the french fries and the mac n cheese. Vegetarian entree was delicious.
Servers brought the complimentary dessert with a birthday sparkler; it was a fun place. Will go again.
Food was over cooked and over priced Seating was uncomfortable and tight. Worst $130 I spent for two people
Buffet brunch on Sunday was delightful. Plenty of choices, good cocktails, great service.
We were immediately greeted and seated. Our meal was prepared as asked. The food was delicious
Waitress was good. Received a beer that was not ordered and billed for it
Never had a bad meal from burgers to seasonal dishes. Always fresh and made to order. Service is always fantastic. Clean and very pleasant staff.
had lunch once. it was fine. went for thanksgiving. it was a buffet. kinda crowded and noisey - no sound attenuation. help was thin. food seemed a little too fancy for a traditional event.
Great swrvice and excellent cuisine e with a lively bar scene! Natalie was perfect as a waitress and a beautiful soul!
Very good, although such normal items as a wine by the glass list were unavailable. Very inconvenient and time consuming. No bread or rolls available, although bagels and marble bread were. No plain toast or rolls? Small quiches underdone - liquid oozed out. ? Otherwise food was good and chocolate muffins and coffee very good. Would go back.
Worst dining experience ever - and I eat out 2-3 times a wk. Sunday, 7 pm reservation and identified as birthday celebration. 15 minutes before server came to table, 2 of the 3 of us wanted rib eyes and we were told that only one was left. BD Girl ordered the steak and just as we’re finishing our salads. BD Girl told that there no steaks, she should order a different dinner and it would be on the house. Crab cakes instead - meals were okay. Come time to order desert and we all ordered, BD Girl orders Tiramisu Server comes back and tells us that they are out of Tiramisu- BD Girl orders something else. Service weak, BD Girl got nothing she ordered and server did not deduct meal as promised. Will never go back.
I requested a nice table through opentable and the restaurant did not disappoint. Awesome service and food. Highly recommended.
Wonderful birthday dinner in late October. I will definitely be returning in the spring & summer to dine outside. Great wait staff
We used to frequent previous restaurants on this property and were excited to see what Riverview would bring to the table - we were pleasantly surprised at how GREAT it really was! Food was delicious and very well priced (almost TOO LOW?!). We were in a really nicely styled sit-down dining area with windows looking over the river. There was also a large bar area and more seating upstairs. The waitstaff was AMAZING...very attentive, very on top of things but not overbearing, and they really made our birthday celebrants feel special with free prosecco and berries. Really nice. The food - delicious, well-prepared, and a broad selection (we were there for sunday Brunch/Lunch). I wish we lived closer (we are over an hour away) because this looks like the kind of place you could really grow to love for special occasions and for weeknight or Friday night hangouts. They were advertising Tuesday Flights - Tacos and Tequila!
Great place, could def improve on service.
It’s always been better sitting at the bar.
the location and setting were very nice. Nice bar and seating area. clean and updates. The service was extremely slow although waitress was friendly. Food arrived cold. fish was dry. not worth the money.
Another overall good meal at Riverview, but I didn’t like the multiple items on the menu that were not available, including 2 of my favs.
We made a reservation and were late for a post-memorial service luncheon. The restaurant had closed for lunch as they were preparing for a big private event in the evening. They made extraordinary accomodations for us even though it was an inconvenience for the staff. This was deeply appreciated and I would highly recommend this place for their kindness and consideration.....and the food was excellent too.
Food was excellent, service was great, ambiance was superb.
Took my daughter and her boyfriend to the Riverview for a Birthday dinner. The staff was very nice, however, the food was not as good.
The service was slowwww from beginning to end. We sat from 6pm to 8pm. Our waiter asked us if we wanted dessert when we didn’t have meal, yet!!!! No reason to return! Too bad because it’s close to home.
Great atmosphere and view of the river. Service was excellent. Varied menu appropriate for casual dining or special occasions.
