    The food was amazing, the filet mignon and the canard a’la orange were incredible! The service was fantastic too - not a lot of gluten free options but the server was very conscious of what had wheat in it and what could be prepared without it. Really appreciated the attention to ask us when our show was and make sure we had time to get to it on time, too!

    This was our second time at Le Rivage. This time we were there before a show and ordered off their Restaurant week menu. Our waiter was very attentive. He asked if we had a show to go too, and we said yes. He made sure we were served promptly when our food was ready, and we made our show in plenty of time. What was also nice here was that the entire menu was available to order from for Restaurant Week. It is common for most restaurants to limit to just a few selections for each of the 3 courses. There were 3 of us and we all had the French Onion soup, and it was excellent. I had the Cordon Bleu, my wife the Ratatouille, and my daughter the Bourguignon. We all enjoyed our meal. My Cordon Bleu in particular was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant.

    We were over an hour early because our play was much shorter than we expected. We walked over from the Schubert Theater in the heat not knowing if we could get in or not. The most lovely hostess let us in immediately! Thank you dear lady, and thank you to our fine waiter and all the staff who are very gracious. The food was extraordinary! See you soon!

    Le Rivage is always a treat. The staff is truly wonderful and the meal pace is very reliable for getting to the theatre in time.. The restaurant is much more than just convenient for the theater. The food is almost always wonderful. The mussels are always a treat, and the pate appetizer is delicious and just the right quantity. The creme brulee is one of my all time favorites. I did have an unfortunate soft shell crab dish. I expected a francaise, and it was instead in a pretty heavy vegetable based sauce. I should have asked. Having the staff sing happy birthday was a good moment!

    Had a lovely pre-theater lunch here this week. While it’s a prix fixe menu, there are many options to choose from. The trout almandine was excellent. Service is attentive and food arrives at a reasonable pace given time limitations. Don’t hesitate to book if you’re eating in the theater district.
