I like the restaurant in whole but being from the old school I would like to have it a lot quieter. You have a piano being played but the noise level is such that you can't hear it. You could use some sound deadening in the ceiling.
The food is good along with the service but the noise makes it so you would rather sit outside.

Great food, great service and the atmosphere is outstanding. they have a nice little bar where you can order drinks and sit outside on the deck over looking the sandy river when the weather permits we've been going there for over 5 years now and just really enjoy the place.

I don't know what happened to their Valentine's dinner event but it was terrible. I've been going to their Valentine's dinner for the last 4 years and the food has been spectacular until this year. The appetizer was stale bread, the soup was too watery, the salad was smothered in dressing, and the red velvet cake was dry and frosted with fondant, not buttercream frosting. My husband agreed that it was subpar comparing to our past visits.

My wife and I ate dinner here for the first time and absolutely loved it. All the food was amazing. Our servers were very knowledgeable and helpful. The chef was outstanding. They recommended dishes to us and we loved everything they recommended. We will absolutely go there again and can't wait to share it with our friends. It was totally worth the drive. Great prices for such quality dishes and tastes.

This was our 4th time dining here, 3 of those times for our anniversary. Every single time the staff was very friendly, we were seated very quickly and the food was delicious. Our waiter, Bradford, was funny and very friendly. We can’t wait to dine here again. This is by far one of our favorite places to eat.

We had a Groupon for the 4-Course Chef’s Menu. We both had the caprese salad, clam chowder and creme brûlée - all were excellent. My wife had the chicken entree and I had the brisket - we thoroughly enjoyed them.

The service was great, too.

We’ll be back - probably for St. Valentine’s Day.

This was our first visit and we used a groupon which was a great deal for a wonderful dinner, but we will go back as everything was so delicious. We got the 4 course set menu but still had choices. The mistake we made was ordering heavy appetizer and chowder rather than salad so we were full by the time the main course came. Still the steak was perfect and we took most of it home for dinner the next night. Lovely atmosphere and great service.

Food was good but main course was disappointing for the price. Expected something thoughtfully crafted, not a previously frozen 4oz chicken breast predictably seasoned with a spice blend lifted from the dollar store.

Some parts of the restaurant felt unfinished, like it was hastily pulled together for the evening.

We went to the Riverview on New Years Eve. We got right in and were seated, at the time (7:45) we got there they were pretty much full. It took a few bit to get a drink ordered but our party wasnt there yet. They were only serving a limited menu, we enjoy the regular menu as the food is fresh and warm. The filo apps were dry that I had and it looked like everyone elses were also, they had probably been sitting on a pan all evening as they made everything in advance it seemed. The kobe beef was a bit dry and I had it medium rare. They charge plenty for dinner so I am not sure why they just dont do what got them where they are. The regular menu is so much better. We wont be going back for anything with the limited menu.

We made our annual New Year's Eve dinner plans on the Open Table app for the Riverview Restaurant. We received a phone message the day before our reservation and were informed there would only be a special menu and no options from their regular menu. I was a little disappointed based on how diverse the regular menu was and we were looking forward to trying some great sounding meals.

Upon arriving at the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly hostess and promptly seated at a table. The restaurant is beautiful in a very Pacific NW way. Exposed timbers, fireplace, beautiful windows overlooking the river. The noise level was a little excessive but I'm sure it was partly due to the holiday chatter and a full restaurant.

The waiter was friendly and helpful but a little overwhelmed due to the volume of patrons. We ordered and enjoyed some conversation while waiting for the first course. I was a little worried when I saw the first course due to the minimal size but the flavor was good. The second and third courses (wedge salad, chicken, and salmon) were great tasting and we finished off with some wonderful desserts (bread pudding, red velvet cake, and creme brulee).

Overall, we were happy with the atmosphere, food, and service. I would like to go back and try something from the regular menu next time and see if it tastes as good as it looks.

New Years Eve. Moderately busy but had reservations so seated immediately. Limited menu because of the holiday but contained our favorites (Salmon and Butternut Squash Ravioli) and as usual was very good (have never had a bad meal here). Service was only Fair, hovered sometimes and nowhere to be found when we needed something. Nothing that will keep us from going back, "our" place for special occasions and/or cut-above dining out.

Firstly, must qualify that; (1) used Groupon for 4 (on sale), and (2) was splendidly taken care of by restaurant, as they didn't offer the short rib entree for Groupon diners that evening, but accommodated my family by offering any entree excluding surf/turf.

With 2 teen boys with voracious appetites, how can you go wrong? We ordered 2 Pork osobucco, halibut and pasta with buffalo meatballs. The portion sizes are ridiculously large and appropriate to share. Being an eating family, we worked through all dishes and sampled each others plates. Quality fresh ingredients, not overly salted (I appreciate restaurants which show restrain), and warm and friendly service. A great time by all.

Prix-fixe Thanksgiving dinner. Food was okay, but very inconsistent from one plate to the next.
Menu said, sirlion, but we were served prime-rib.

Guitar player was good.

We had a large party. Waiter was well-meaning, but extremely slow and forgetful. We spoke to the Manager, who apologized and waived the 20% service charge - which was appreciated.

 (Portland)·Dined on November 21, 2017

Very disappointing. The kitchen destroyed not one, but two, Kobe top sirloin steaks. The first one was over-cooked -- ordered medium-rare, served medium-well and also came with a sauce that was specifically requested to be held. The replacement was a disgusting cut with a large tendon running through the center, and carelessly overcooked as well. The service was however, commendable. They did not charge us for the steak. Nevertheless, it was a relatively simple order at a restaurant with a medium-high price tag and a respectable reputation.
We will not be returning, nor can we recommend this restaurant to friends or visitors. With the understanding that our city is becoming one of the food centers in the country, The Riverview needs to straighten out a kitchen that cannot deliver a simple steak or they will not survive against the level of cuisine being offered throughout the Portland area.
