    Our server, Yasmin, welcomed us warmly. She made very good suggestions for dining. She had a light, but attentive manner, ensuring we enjoyed our evening. The food is creative, well presented and tasteful. We've been customers for a few years and have yet to experience disappointment on any level. Thank you

    Honestly, I had modest expectations from restaurant on a strip, but this had decent ratings on Open Table and was close to the hotel, so why not? And I am SO GLAD I did! The fried artichoke was almost tempura style it was so light. The focaccia bread which they are known for was incredible, and the pasta (I had lasagna, an easy measure of Italian sauce quality) and it was outstanding! Topped off the meal with pistachio mousse, INCREDIBLE service and even wines I rarely find in my travels, all for a very approachable price. LOVED it! I'll be back on my next trip to Miami!

    This return visit was wonderful. Our waiter was terrific (attentive but not hovering) and the food was excellent. My favorite was the lightly golden-fried artichokes starter. New to me was the raspberry tart dessert — tasty & delicate.

    They make the best focaccia di recto in miami by far! We shared a ni Lise salad that was very Americanized. It had romaine lettuce instead of the typical thin green beans (haricots verts) that the traditional French recipe has. It came with a creamy dressing (also American style) which I declined and dressed it with an excellent olive they have. A delicious panna cotta with a Cherry oculus to seal the meal. I went on a Monday and it was slow and quiet. Our server was very friendly and nice. Ah, a good Sauvignon Blanc was served iced cold. Excellent.

    We went to Riviera to celebrate my son’s birthday. The location is very nice and we enjoyed staying outside. The appetizers were very good. We ordered the focaccia and the octopus. The main courses we didn’t really enjoy. My son liked his lasagna. For my taste it was a little over cooked. I had the special spaghetti carbonara and they were very salty. The pasta needed probably another minute to cook because it was more than Al dente. My other son refused to eat his snapper. When I tried it it tasted very fishy and not fresh. We left more than half on the plate. My husband had chicken Milanese and he said it was so so. On the dry side and a very thick crust that was not enjoyable. Based on the main courses we decided to skip desert.

    food is excellent. eggplant appetizer, foccacia and snapper all delicious. Prices reasonable for miami. Ambiance is just ok. outdoor seating has rickety sticky tables with uncomfortable chairs. go if you want great food, not if you want fancy outdoor dining.
