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.

Everthing was pretty first class. I was not so keen on the salad, but that is probably just me not liking many salads. Service was great!

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.

First visit and we ordered from the four course menu. Service was excellent the entire evening and food was very good. The chef also does a wonderful job in the presentation of each plate. Although our preferred cocktail was not on the menu, the bartender was able to accommodate us. The playlist on the player-piano was soft and added to the very pleasant experience. We will return and recommend to others.

Our server was great. My husband's brisket was excellant but my chicken was over cooked and dry. The sauce and mushrooms with my chicken was good. The whole meal was over all good and the piano music was a nice touch even if it wasn't played by a real person.

We enjoyed the 4 course tasting menu. It was interesting and diverse. The courses were generous in their servings. The waiter we had was a long-time professional server who made the experience fun and special. We saw other diners order the table-side prepared bananas foster, which was entertaining to watch. The location is really beautiful on the edge of the Sandy River. The dining room is pretty large, and even so the tables were a bit close together. Although in our case most of them were not occupied, because we chose an off night. But the waiter had a difficult time moving the bananas foster cart through the area. The dining chairs leave a little to be desired in the comfort arena. They aren't the worst I've had, but not super comfy for a long dinner. There is a grand piano with an auto-play feature that adds to ambiance. All-in-all it was a really enjoyable evening.

We had Tyler as our server. Every time he came by we asked for something, we kept him busy. He was nice and cordial. Food was good. Creme brûlée for dessert was fantastic. Overall location cozy, next to the piano so it was kind of loud.

Good food. Nice music.
The bright blue Christmas bulbs could be toned down from LED to standard so it isn't so over whelming but that is seasonal and will be gone soon.
The ambiance is nice.
We like coming here for special occasions. Would recommend highly.

Checked this restaurant out for my birthday with a groupon I purchased to see what it was all about. Must say I was thoroughly impressed from walking in the door till we left....friendly attentive staff, promptly seated, just amazing food, great decor and overall felt everyone went above and beyond. Will definitely come back for further special occasions or date nights.
