This restaurant was such a happy surprise for us! we had been staying at the Galt House, and saw the restaurant advertised in all the elevators, and made a quick reservation on a whim, and it turned out to be a fabulous evening! We had barely looked into the place, so it was a surprise when we discovered that our table was moving! The sunset revolve was gorgeous. The food was excellent - I am a vegetarian and my husband is a meat-a-tarian :), and we both had food that was flavorful and well prepared. The piano player provided some really nice atmosphere, and our waiter was attentive and helpful - particularly helping me find exactly the wine I was interested in. Our one disappointment was that the house-made vanilla ice cream was only so-so (the raspberry sorbet, on the other hand... YUM!). Really, it was a delightful evening with tasty food, great views, and good service. I would definitely recommend it!

Lovely setting to meet and chat with old friends. Enjoyed the live music. The food and service were very good, and I loved the Brussels sprouts! I highly recommend for a special occasion.

You had two quiche dishes, both were tough and tasteless. Had a omelet made. The young man said he had never made an omelet before, and it should, it was more like scramble eggs with added vegetables.
Did not try other dishes, other than the shrimp, which was very good. The greek salad was overloaded with cucumbers and onions. Desserts were good.
Server was very attentive.

During the last visit the quality of the food was sudstandard. The quiche was old, rubbery and dried out. The rolled salmon was dried out on the edges....being there early I expected the food to be fresh but it definitely was not fresh. A bit disappointed this time.

I had a wonderful experience at Rivue Restaurant and Lounge. The service ( the greeters, the wait staff) was excellent. The food was delicious with nice portions not that skimpy stuff you get at alot of other upscale restaurants. The ambiance was perfect for the romantic evening I was looking for

The beef and chicken were excellent but the potatoes should've been cooked longer. The salads were pathetic. The only other vegetable was asparagus, which I don't like. My suggestion is to offer more vegetables, and some gluten free desserts.

This was my second time dining at this restaurant. I arrived with high expectations as a result of my first dining experience here. This dining experience far outweighs the first visit. The evening was an excellent experience for me and my beautiful Tracy. The food was absolutely fabulous. The staff were all very inviting, professional, accommodating and friendly. The view is so beautiful, especially when arriving when it’s still daylight and then watch the sunset and see the city in lights. Great dining experience.

We’d eaten at Rivue several times before and always thought it was great. However, the quality seems to have eroded since our last visit. Service was just OK and the food was the same...I’d call both the service and food average. Not at all what we expected based on previous dining experiences and certainly not a good value.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was such a beautiful experience. Great downtown and river view from the top. Loved the revolving restaurant concept. Food was good though we didn't have much food choices in vegetarian and chicken But overall food was good. little pricey but worth the money.

I would recommend the restaurant to a friend however I would never recommend the fried green tomatoes. I can’t believe those extra thin slices of tough green leather were slices of tomato. And the breading tasted like Mexican chili powder. They were horrible and my husband and I couldn’t eat them. The server was wonderful and the rest of the food was delicious. It is on the more expensive side but I guess you’re paying for the view from the revolving restaurant. It was Worth it to go there once, but I sure wouldn’t make a habit of it.
