Dinner and service was great. We sat outside which was a little chilly, but beautiful. A lot of road noise from a busy Saturday evening cruising. Still recommend this place.

Date night after being stuck in the house due to the pandemic, and the recent wildfires. It was very nice, relaxing, and our bellies were full and happy. This was our second visit here, and again, it did not disappoint.

I was very disappointed in the qualilty and quantity of food, and being charged for rolls which usually come with a dinner. the chicken was burnt a tablespoon of rice which cost extra. The dinner was not worth the price. I do not intend to visit your restaurant again.

We celebrated my birthday at the Riverview and it was fabulous! During the current pandemic they are providing the highest level of precautions while also maintaining a sense of normalcy that I miss. This is accomplished by outdoor seating below a canopy of trees, next to the Sandy river & a commitment to COVID safe practices. I was able to celebrate with family members who aren't normally able to go to restaurants. The food was amazing and the service was beyond expectations. I highly recommend and have let many friends and family know they should go! Thank you to Junki for an amazing evening with my family, in such a beautiful place.

We've been here pre-Covid and name change, and now after. The difference is night and day. And this review is coming from someone who has been in the food industry many years

Where the Chef's 4 course menu used to be delicious and well worth the Groupon, it's honestly now nothing more than you could find at Applebee's. They have 3 lackluster items on the menu. Brisket, which was strangely cut as thick as a steak and not very tender, a veggie plate (which we did not get) or their version of "fried chicken" which was broiled chicken, thrown in the deep fryer and covered in a sweet chili sauce likely right out of a bottle

The side were also "meh" with the rice being dry and flavorless and the mashed potatoes were gummy. Vegetable were somewhat over roasted. Our server was congenial but obviously very busy. The servers they used to have were very attentive and professional.

Any way, save your Groupon money for something else and whatever you do, DON'T go there without one because what we had would have been $105 without one!!

Dining on the back deck by the river was superb. Our server did a fantastic job, efficient and friendly. The food and drinks were delicious. This was our 3rd trip to Riverview, we live about an hour away, and we will go back. They follow all the guidelines for safety.

Love the new remodel but the food, not so much. The sauces were way too strong and not very good. We would pay more for higher quality meal. It’s a special place that we have gone to for years but the new menu and food was disappointing.......

Riverview is certainly not what it used to be. The menu has definitely taken a hit from what it was before. We were expecting to find a nice menu with some elegant choices, and were shocked to find it was mostly sandwiches and Asian cuisine. This used to be our go-to place for a date night dinner, but that won’t happen anymore.

We've been here about a dozen times what they seem to have gone downhill. Caesar salad croutons soggy, Debi's broccolini way over cooked, her garlic rice also over and sticky mush, my roasted potatoes bland laced seasoning.

I love the location, the view, the ambience of the outdoor seating. The hors doeuvres menu is excellent.

Our waiter was excellent, but I found the initial welcome and seating very slow and disorganized. I understand that the pandemic has added complexity to the operation, and perhaps you are understaffed in this regard. But I had a reservation and it still took a good 10-15 minutes to get seated.

Also, I would have appreciated having a Sauvignon Blanc on your wine list. This said, I will not hesitate to come to your establishment again; and, in fact, look forward to it.

Our server Kaley(?) was amazing. She was very attentive and just a pleasant person overall. Our food was brought on time (though my broccolini was slightly over cooked) and warm/hot. The calamari was great though! The venue was quiet and just nice (as add always). My girlfriend was happy to have a happy birthday dinner there! We'll be back for sure.

Amazing food in a beautiful venue under the trees along the Sandy river. It was a great way to escape the 100 degree heat in Portland, and eat outside where it felt at least 20 degrees cooler.

The setting is always wonderful at Riverview. That's probably what keeps us coming back! We had to wait after being seated for someone to come take at least our drink order. Others that had arrived after had gotten their drinks long before we even ordered ours. Disappointed that the whiskey sour was made with a mix. We ordered entrees since it was a special occasion, but they were not worth the price. We will stick to apps, salads, sandwiches and bowls next time. I ordered the short rib which came overdone with only two tiny pieces of the the rib meat. My daughter ordered the brisket and it was pretty much all fat (albeit it is a fattier cut, but not that much generally). The fried chicken thighs, which ended up being the chicken hindquarter, were good, but not what my husband and son-in-law expected. All in all, the food was disappointing but the setting and service (once we were given a server) were great!

We loved our experience. Had an anniversary dinner and the food, service, and atmosphere were excellent! We sat out on the deck overlooking the river. Their 4 course dinner menu didn’t have as many choices as previous visits but the food we did choose was very tasty. Will definitely be back!

We are so excited that this restaurant is finally back open again! Have been able to go there 3 times in the last 2 weeks and have enjoyed every visit. Weather has been great so we chose to dine on the patio. Great happy hour menu and drink specials! New dinner menu had great variety making it hard to choose. Highly recommend!

It was a wonderful belated birthday dinner for my dad and he got all the pomp and circumstance he would have on his actual birthday. The meal was outstanding and the wine list appropriate. The brisket melted in my mouth. Excellent! Definitely plan on going back. Maybe once a month for a grown up outing with my parents!
