It was ok. Was expecting great things based on other reviews but wasn't overwhelmed. Service was fairly slow.

My boyfriend and I went to Riff's for his birthday. It was absolutely amazing. They had an excellent seasonal menu - everything was delicious. Our server was absolutely lovely as well. She was attentive but gave us our space to enjoy ourselves. Highly recommend Riff's! P.S. The burrata appetizer is divine.

Food and service were beyond expectations, in other words outstanding. Noise level was intense. I will certainly go there again though I may have to wear ear plugs.

I love this place. I ordered the salmon with the brussels sprouts and they were both delicious. There is a ton of variety on the menu for anyone's tastes.

Chef Platt and his staff do a wonderful job of preparing quality food, locally sourced when possible. This is a favorite "go-to" restaurant for us.

We eat out a lot, weeknights, weekends, with friends, business associations, and just the two of us, and sometimes one. Riffs is our go-to. Interesting dishes, nice portions, service moves along, but not too fast. Love the vibe too!
