Do not have one negative thing to say about our experience. Extremely satisfied with EVERYTHING!
We came here with a Groupon, so let's get that out of the way. Still, the entire menu was available, where in some places what you can order is restricted and not everything on the menu is available to order.
I do have a couple of gripes, but overall, the food was very, very good. The service, while very friendly, was pretty slow. There were only three tables occupied, although there was a Christmas party going on upstairs, so maybe that was why things were slow. Happily we're retired and were in no hurry to get anywhere, so I probably shouldn't complain.
We shared the mussels in a zesty marina sauce, which were as good as any I've ever had. (Not one bit of sand.)
For my entrée I had the braised short ribs with mashed potatoes and veggies. The beef was nice and tender... an excellent tomato bases sauce and the potatoes were smooth and creamy.
My wife had the lobster ravioli and sparingly allowed me a little corner of one of the raviolis. Very tasty, if I do say so myself.
We ended with a Tiramisu... which also was very very good.
Overall, we liked The Riverside Manor very much.
One other little 'issue' we had was the wine. They do pour you a nice glass of wine (remember... we had a Groupon) Their house red. Trouble was, it was cold... but cold like it came out of the refrigerator cold.
Note to Riverside... Red wine should be stored (and served at about 50 to 65 degrees... give or take a few degrees.
But will we go back? Absolutely!
Food was excellent and more than plentiful. With a Groupon it was an excellent bargain. Although the restaurant was rather empty, the waitress was very pleasant but seemed over worked and not as attentive as we would have liked.
Watch your check at the Sunday Buffet. They add the gratuity to your bill even when there is only two people in your party. I almost tipped on top of the already added tip until I went back and looked a second time.
I, for the life of me cannot figure out why more people have not discovered this fabulous restaurant. It is convenient to get to, right off of the Fair Lawn main streets, beautifully decorated, food is delicious, comforting and creative, service polished, attentive but not overbearing, and very enjoyable in so many ways. Do yourself a huge favor and visit this gem. You will thank me for it!
The place was nice and big. Went with a Groupon but didn’t realize it was a specific menu. Nothing was mentioned in the Groupon fine print, normally if there is a special menu it’s shown on the Groupon. The only uncomfortable thing was that the place was completely empty (Thursday night) which was magnified by the fact that it is a large dining area. The food was decent and the waitress was very nice.
Everything was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert! The red sangria was excellent. We liked the ambiance & the good service. We will definitely be back & will bring friends with us!
Very good. Nice views. Service very fast
We have been here several times over the past couple of years. We have attended the Brunch which is fantastic, open dined, and attended two formal affairs all leading to the same 5 star rating. Food is consistent, service excellent, ambiance beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend.
Brunch was delightful. Good choices, not just breakfast items. Delicious salsa, tilapia, rice option
