Waiter was great and brisket and salmon were great. Appetizers were very good and we loved the chocolate desert except felt the chocolate cookie didn’t go well with crepe brûlée. Salad was good but could have been just maybe bit better. We loved our visit and would come again and recommend to others.

One of my guests salmon was not cook properly and the waiter only removed the salmon to cook it again should have removed the whole plate, mu koby beef was tough and uncooked when I had requested medium. The waiter did not addressed well our concerns

I felt the food was good but not outstanding, I make Shepherds pie myself, and I like mine better! The price was $24, which was too expensive for what it was, in my opinion! Service and atmosphere was a pleasure.

Work service ever had in such a nice restaurant! We had no server and the hostess tried and failed miserablly to serve us. One drink for 3 hours, no refill on water. My children were starving and food
Came out all wrong with no apology or comped anything. Dessert had a substitution cause they were out of chocolate cake and we were given cheesecake with chocolate sauce and were not even asked if that was okay. Won’t be going back though we live
Right next to the restaurant and used to love going there !

We used a Groupon. Service and food were excellent. Waiter was not hovering over us asking how everything was - which was really nice. And, we wanted for nothing. Looking forward to next time.

Went to Riverview for a birthday dinner. I was not impressed with the food or the service at all . The steaks were OK... but for the price they should have been better. If you want a steak go to Ringside Steak house. Service was OK....very slow. I expected a little more. Maybe this place is ok if you just want to relax, have a drink and enjoy the views. Food wise I would not recommend it.

I took my friend to Riverview to celebrate her birthday. Our reservation was on a Saturday at 5:15. I used a Groupon for the 4 course meal and requested a table by the fireplace. Our table location was fantastic and the restaurant quiet for the first hour. The noise level went up a bit as more diners arrived, but is alwasn’t bad especially with the lovely piano music playing in the back ground. We were treated wonderfully. Our server was attentive without making us feel rushed. The food was absolutely delicious. A lovely restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or simply to experience fine dining in a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere. I love Riverview!

We had a great waiter very knowledgeable and attentive. The restaurant has a great atmosphere with a view of the river. We didn’t enjoy the food like we thought we would so we will return to try other options on the menu.

From the moment my wife and I walked into the restaurant everything was absolutely amazing. The greeting we received at the entrance, the first server, our waiter, the cleanliness of the restaurant, ambiance and most especially the food.

We will most DEFINITELY be coming back to Riverview restaurant in the near future.

Food was very good as was the location. They were busy and the noise level was so loud it was hard to carry on a conversation at our table. Service was neglectful. A less busy day would have made a difference, maybe.

My first time here I was quite happy with both the service and the food, but this time, not so much. Service, despite not having many patrons, was very forgetful and less than welcoming. The vegetables seemed far too old and overcooked, the steak was good though. Disappointing, I expected better.

Very comfortable, relaxed setting. We were given a table by a fireplace which was great! The food was very good. This dinner was to celebrate my birthday. They had a thank you card on the table and the server offered a free dessert to take home since we were too full to eat it there. Very, very thoughtful!

Our main course was cold. It really ruined it. Also, when they found out we were using Groupon their entire attitude towards us shifted significantly! Waiter brought us our check and walked away w/o closing out our evening with even a “goodbye” or please come again, etc. we walked up to hostess desk to pay but realized @ that moment the waiter was supposed to return to our table to close us out (we didn’t know as he said nothing when he dropped off the check). At this time waiter came in a hustle with the look that we had tried to dash & done & there was no apology on his behalf, only the hostess saying he should have communicated he would be our cashier. It was such a lovely evening up until that point though. Highly overpriced, I will not be returning.

Everything we ordered was spot on except for the main dish, the braised beef which was stringy and tough. We ended up taking it home and never did eat it. The cauliflower was the best I have ever had, the asparagus was grilled to perfection and the mashed potatoes as well. The chocolate cake was so good I can't stop thinking about it.
Our server was very good and took wonderful care of us.

It was great. We had a groupon and the choices were well rounded. From the Chef ’s Four Course Menu, we both had the won ton shumai, the grilled salmon entrée and the vanilla bean crème brulée - they were all thoroughly enjoyed. Our only variant was that one had the soup du jour and the other had the side house green salad.

We’ll be back.
