A must try!! Can not visit Lake Tahoe without stopping by this local gem.
Fantastic dinner! We enjoyed every sip and every bite. Great service, too!
When I paid our bill I asked the waitress to break a 20.00 into 5’s and bring me my change instead she took the change for her tip which was a 35 percent tip. And gave me change for my 20.00
We had Thanksgiving dinner at Riva. The turkey dinner was much better than I had anticipated, as nothing is usually as good as a home cooked Thanksgiving. Everything was delicious. Our son had the filet and said it was cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. When in Tahoe we’ll definitely go back.
Location and ambience was great. Food was greatly disappointing. It was cold and not very flavorful but salty. Definitely not worth the price paid for the special Thanksgiving dinner. It was very busy and our server was nice but we have to keep pestering her for things.
Awesome food and service we would definitely go again
Streak was chared to much it was burnt on ends ! Taste like a dirty grill . Seasoning was there but texture wasn’t! The mash potatoes were awesome though! Id return to try something again.
Good was delicious, great service, nice central location.
This place is definitely dated. Food was good. Service was good. Decor and ambiance are worn and dated.
We had a great waiter named Dustin. He was very attentive. Food was great!
The lobster shrimp bisque was delish.Scallops, Chicken & Mussels were devine.
The ONLY problem we had was the fire alarm went off which was EXTREMELY annoying since it was an accident. We HAD to sit there for about 5 minutes listening to it.
The fish and chips were some of the best we’ve ever had. We’ll definitely be back!
We had an open table reservation and clicked birthday to celebrate my birthday. We had to wait forever for service to greet us, drinks took forever and we were not offered a dessert menu! No birthday treat! Service was terrible!
My only complaint is that that it was our anniversary and I requested a few things that weren’t done. For desert I asked for a chocolate desert with happy anniversary in it and it was not brought out.
Other than that, it was amazing food and service and ambiance. I would for sure recommend it and I will be back!!
Go at sunset! Sit upstairs. Filet delicious. Desserts big enough to feed everyone at the table
I’m a concierge in Lake Tahoe and I recommend this restaurant every day, I always get good feedback from the guests I send there. I took my family for a early dinner and they were very impressed. Delicious!!
Found a bug flying around and landing on the table. Server was friendly but not very attentive. Looked like he wanted to be somewhere else and didn’t appear to enjoy his job.
Food was ok, but filet was undercooked, like raw when I asked for medium. Mashed potatoes were too salty.
I do recommend the wet silly, but next time I will just sit in the bar and not sit down for dinner.
The food is average, drinks are good, service is hit and miss. Best thing about this place is the view and that’s what I typically go for...
The kid’s menu is terribly over priced. Both of my children couldn’t even finish their meals. The focus from our wait staff was more on pushing the alcoholic beverages vs suggesting high quality entree’s, leaving us to our own devices.
We order the lobster devil eggs-one person out of our entire party enjoyed them.
I had the French onion soup to start and this was actually the highlight of our culinary experience. Although it came as a starter, it was a generous serving loved by all!
High rated restaurant. Food and service was exceptional and 5 star rating but expensive. Well worth it but have pocket book ready
Location, location, location - food was excellent but pricey. Beautiful interior decorated for the fall. I had the chicken pasta which was delicious and large serving size. I just that thought it was a lot to pay for pasta.
Beautiful big restaurant with a gorgeous view of the water. Service was quick. Nice drinks menu and food presentation was good.
The ambiance was pleasant, the food very tasty (the bacon wrapped filet was melt in your mouth good), and the service fabulous. The sun-dried tomato hummus and bread sticks were a nice touch, and we enjoyed the cocktails. I'd have liked to see a more interesting wine list, but that's just nitpicking for some constructive criticism. Everything on the list was fine, just common.
Our server recommended the mini ice cream sandwiches for dessert and they were exceptional. I wish I remembered her name because she was exceptional!
The BEST filet I’ve EVER had.
An outstanding meal to end my first time in Tahoe and celebrate my birthday! And thanks to Sapphire for her great service and local info! “I’ll be back”
Food was Ok, woodies and view were the best part, service was good until one of the desserts was messed up and the waitress told us she took one drink off the tab because of that, but she didn’t. There was also an error on the price of the messed up dessert that was corrected.
The salmon in my entre was dry but the appetizer, drinks and my guests entre were great. I would recommend the restaurant but maybe not the salmon.
John our waiter was excellent Service excellent
View of the lake at sunset spectacular. We split our dinner and salad. It was more than enough.
Absolutely amazing place.
nice location but very noisy. Food was good and a lot of choices were available on their menu. We did enjoy the meal and would come back again, next time we are in South Lake Tahoe
We were given a gift card and looked forward to an evening out. Our server Andrea was very nice and made us feel comfortable. Food was just ok. Caesar salad was very dry and needed more dressing. Ribeye steak was undercooked and bland atop a bed of pork belly mushrooms asparagus and red potatoes. For the price i would have anticipated more flavor. Drinks were delicious which we would return another time to enjoy again.
Management should think of the customers as well as the strain on staff when a table of 25 is in a room with several other tables and only have two servers.
We waited an excessive amount of time between courses while our waitress also had to address a table of 25 to 30 people, as well as help two other table on either side of us.
All in all, the food prep was awesome!!!
Sad management didn't "support" the great efforts of the Chef!!
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The prime rib was amazing and the drinks refreshing. Everyone loved all the food that was ordered. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
We love the Riva Grill. Everytime we come to Tahoe we make sure to have dinner here. This trip we took my Dad from Washington and he really liked the view and food. Our table was outside which was a little cold but with the heaters it wasn't bad.
Great menu — service on top of timing, recommendations, and knowing limits to checking in — delivered a very nice evening.
After a day of hiking we stopped in the Riva Grill for a late lunch. Claire was our server. Not only was she prompt & friendly, but she gave us her expert opinion, when asked for. Her suggestions off the menu were spot on! Everything was delicious! The ambiance was quite comfortable & the view of the lake was absolutely beautiful! Would highly recommend!
We loved our time and our server Sabrina? was so accommodating and sweet and let us linger and enjoy our anniversary together. We really appreciated her!
Really cool, but VERY expensive! We sat outside and it got pretty cool, as our table was away from the heaters.
My daughter and I had a delicious meal with a beautiful view of the lake. Excellent and fast service. We had the chicken and salmon meals- highly recommend!!
Food was OK but pricey for the quality. We went for the view- very disappointing. It was not very good from our table.
The server from Romania was excellent.... very courteous, attentive, and knowledgeable.… The view was amazing. Overall the food was quite good but somewhat overpriced as there was nothing special about the steak or chicken dinners.
