When was the last time you had fun? I mean real FUN? The kind of evening that leaves you grinning and humming a happy tune for days. The new Riv is that place. It's the place that you know will deliver. From the moment you walk in the door, start to feel the vibe, then look at that diverse menu,... More

Was in Glenwood Springs this past September to visit my daughter. We had dinner at the Riviera on two different occasions; both times the the food and the service were both exceptional. Went back in a couple more times for just drinks and an appetizer and again the food and service were excellent. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Great vibe, fun, exciting, excellent food. I had a ceasar salad -great flavor, I like how they've chopped it all together so the bites are appropriate size but more importantly all the wonder flavors are mixed onto even side of lettuce. One of the best ceasar salads I've had in my 53 yrs. Bartender was extremely attentive and pleasant, made... More

Highly commendable features and a few of the not-experienced-often-even-in-nice-restaurants qualities you'll find at Riviera? Deliciously outstanding cuisine, commendable service, pleasant atmosphere with live background piano music. In our appetizer and in both of our entrees we (...my daughter and I having a periodic Dad-Daughter Dinner Out) experienced a welcomed attention to near-perfect texture of the vegetables in our pasta dishes...

Stopped in for dinner after a nice soak in the hot springs pool across the highway. The restaurant was nothing like we expected from looking at the outside. We thought it was a diner but it turned out to be a nice piano and wine restaurant! It was an unexpected but pleasant surprise. Our waiter was very friendly (we think... More

As you walk up to the Riviera you can already feel the warmth and good spirits. Sounds of cheer, singing and masterful piano from classics to modern. Everything here is spot on. The lighting, the atmosphere, the service, and most importantly to me, THE MENU! There is something to amaze for every course and a perfect wine to pair it... More

We love the Riv! They've just unveiled their autumn/winter menu. I was worried, because I very much liked their summer menu and I didn't want it to change. No need to worry. This menu exceeds the first. The sweet potato fritters with the house made bbq sauce are amazing. Rivin' it Right for sure! The staff is so welcoming and... More

There is not a bad thing I can say about this wonderful experience. Wonderful piano playing by a variety of different musicians. The food from the first bite to the last was outstanding. I had a fantastic escargot to start and a NY strip stake for my main course. Everything was cooked to perfection and to top it all off... More
