Riverview was really crowded and extremely short-staffed when we went, but the staff that were there were extremely kind, attentive and apologetic for the lack of extra hands. Honestly, given the number of diners I thought we received our drinks and food pretty quickly, waiting only around 50 minutes for our main courses. Noise level in the restaurant was very high making it difficult to hear one another, but for a Saturday night it didn’t come as a surprise.
The Hurricane Punch was a great drink - really fruity but also super boozy. The Tuna Tartare was a tasty starter - great flavors, though the avocado was a little underripe and therefore harder to get through. Had the NY Strip for my main - the seasoning was spot on, though the cook left a little to be desired with a good deal of unrendered fat on the sides. All in all it was a solid meal framed by excellent customer service. Will definitely eat there again!
Great food and drinks. Have been there a few times, keep going back.
Dinner for 5. All discriminating diners. We were forewarned with a listing at the hostess desk that service might be slow because of staffing issues (seems to be a universal problem.) The dinner was excellent. Mixed drinks well made. Carpaccio and caponata appetizers very good. Esposito pork chop and short ribs were excellent.
I hadn’t been to Riverview in some time and with the changeover in the menu I certainly will return on a regular basis.
Good to see that fine dining in Burlington is appreciated.
Ambiance was fantastic and the service was great. We went for an anniversary lunch and we all enjoyed our meals. We were very happy with the restaurant and pleasantly surprised about how nice and historic that area is.
Amazing overall ambiance we had a slight water view table from the inside. The indoor bar was gorgeous and very inviting. The menu was innovative and inviting with skilled culinary takes on traditional foods, there was a great variety of familiarity and enough to push your comfort zone just a bit. There is also outdoor seating in a very large lawn area that is well lit and looked to be a great time I will definitely be back to sit outside with some friends over a bottle of wine, probably on a Wednesday because that’s wine and cheese night.
Overall great little hidden gem in the historic neighborhood in Burlington. Highly recommended and will be back.
This wasn’t the first time here. We have definitely had great meals here before. My biggest problem with this experience wasn’t necessarily the slower than normal service, it was our cold food. I ordered a steak and my wife ordered the salmon. Our food wasn’t even warm. Luckily the flavor was great on my steak, but the salmon was a bit fishy. We enjoyed the outdoor evening experience and we didn’t let the food ruin our night. We would have ordered another round of drinks except that we couldn’t get them ordered fast enough.
We made an evening reservation for a table inside to celebrate our anniversary (last minute). We arrived and it was super loud. There was apparently a wedding upstairs (yay) but it was too loud inside to even hear the hostess let alone enjoy dinner. So we chose to sit outside. The patio was nice but it was chilly and none of the patio heaters or fire pits were turned on or even offered. The Riverview has no view of the river now that new condos have been built there. But, it was a nice area for what it was. Food was good, but just ok. I could see it being a place to grab a glass of wine & charcuterie board to meet up with friends.
They were backed up due to a private party. Great location, we enjoyed sitting outside. The staff was very solicitous and concerned about the delay. Caponata, Cauliflower Pizza and the burger were all great.
The restaurant was busy and although there was a wedding upstairs the staff made a point of keeping customers aware of the situation and happy.
Very unhappy that a wedding was a priority over locals making reservations and then making them wait. A phone call or heads up would have been better. Steak was over cooked got a replacement but by then we were leaving so had to get McDonald's to eat. Probably will not be back for awhile.
Excellent food and service! Always a good time!!
Food and drinks were wonderful. Enjoyed 1st time dining and will return soon!
Best pork chop I’ve ever had. Super thick and super tender. I recommend you try it!!!!
Service was good our waitress was very attentive
Food was average and very small portions
Misto Appetizer was over cooked
The room we were seated in was very loud but the decor and setting is very nice.
Loved everything about the restaurant. Appetizers and dinner were delicious. The only issue is the lack of options for dinner.
Nice place - first time in 20 years. Food still excellent. Like everyone they had staffing issues, but staff that was there was very helpful.
Melissa and Morgan were very personable and diligent.
The highest noise level on Open Table has it rated as energetic???? The highest noise was LOUD, ANNOYING AND OBNOXIOUS! Melissa asked them to hush and it did help for a bit, but the noise level got high again, not too long after.
The food and drink were quite enjoyable.
Happy hour food/drinks good value and yummy
Everything is always excellent!! We always get the steak and Caesar salad. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
Took my husband there for an impromptu birthday dinner - the food was excellent! Our waitress was delightful.
Great atmosphere in the bar and the dining room. The food was delicious and the prices were awesome for what I got.
Restaurant was busy and bar area lively. Excellent meal. Excellent service. Ask for Nicholas, friendly, knowledgeable & attentive.
The food and service was great!
Very nice date night. Food was good and service was great.
This was my family’s first time dining at Riverview , it was my grandmothers birthday and we wanted somewhere to dine with a nice ambiance and we got just that !! Upon arriving we were greeted with a welcoming smile from the hostess Morgan who promptly showed us to our table , in a great area might I add .
Our waitress Natalie was just amazing ! She had a couple
Of tables along with ours but she never missed a beat. She always made sure that she checked on us periodically. From the start to finish everything was great , and I loved the fact that the manager was hands on and refilled our water whenever we needed it and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back again !
Although crowded and delayed when we visited (a Friday night), my family and I had an amazing time! The service was outstanding, some of the best I can recall at any restaurant. Food was very tasty. This was our first time here, but not our last. Thank you all!
Awesome meal as usual
Everything was delicious, just missed getting bread with my pasta.
The bar staff was excellent and the dining staff was good. Little disappointed in two of the four meals. Other than the short rib dishes being somewhat overdone (not horribly) and not melt in your mouth, we had a nice meal and time.
Amazing atmosphere outside, expert service, quality food. Loved it! Planning another visit!!
The atmosphere is average inside, decor is low level basic. The view is limited as the new condos in Burlington limit “river view “the menu is limited not a lot of options before 5:00 pm there is only a happy hour menu. I will say our server was excellent.
The charcuterie and The salmon for me were perfect. The asparagus risotto cooked to perfection. Desert chocolate cake rich and moist. Service was excellent. Walked waterfront after dinner. Nice neighborhood.
We love the food and friendly service we always get at Riverview. We visit often and are never disappointed even during times when they were understaffed they did their best to meet the needs of their customers. On this visit we shared a dozen of freshly shucked oysters. We also had the smoked half chicken and scallops and mushrooms with homemade papperdale pasta. All were just delicious! Overall wonderful experience!
My husband and I had the salmon. It was excellent. Service was very good.
Food was very good had to wait 15 minutes for drinks to be served. Bar needs help.
It was a little loud in the restaurant and the two tops were a bit close together which made it hard to sit down. Prices were a little high for the portions but the food and service was good.
The food was really good and our server was great. A little peeved that we had a reservation for 7 but we had to wait until 7:20 to be seated.
The Riverview never disappoints!
Cool bar scene, the dining room is not as loud as the bar room. They have outdoor seating and chairs out on the patio.
We met family there to celebrate 2 birthdays . Food was amazing . Wait staff friendly and knowledgeable . We were not rushed out and we definitely would like to return on a warmer evening as the outside setting seemed very nice too.
