“Disappointing!”
Review of Riviera

We stopped in for Cinco de Mayo to grab lunch. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was very friendly but forgetful. The salsa and particularly the salsa verde tasted like it came out of a jar; there was nothing fresh about it. We both ordered the shrimp fajitas lunch special. Fajitas are normally served in a sizzling skillet but ours were each served in a ceramic dish shaped like a skillet. The portion size was meager (only 5 shrimp to fill 3 tortillas), and it was served with refried beans, which had a funky taste. I couldn't eat them. What we found extremely annoying in the dining room was staff literally yelling, "Coming in!" to enter the kitchen, to avoid being hit by someone coming out. The yelling happened repeatedly during our meal, and was a big turn-off to us. We won't be back. Adios!

Went here for the first time today. We had strawberry margaritas. They were very good, with a good hit to them. We each had the Pork Rice Bowls. They were very tasty. They give you salsa and chips when you first arrive. The salsa is strong in cumin flavor. I prefer a stronger cilantro taste, but it is good all the same. We will be back!

Stopped for lunch and was seated immediately, waitress was very quick and attentive. Had nachos which were big enough for 2 to share and tasty. This place has a comfortable atmosphere with friendly staff. Glad we came across this Mexican restaurant and would definitely eat there again!

There are Restaurants in Crystal River / Homosassa who could not pay us to eat, but This place is Wonderful. The food is First class, you get so much you have to get 2 boxes to take the leftovers home. The Meals are fantastic. The people who work there are Happy and love their job. The Jukebox in the bar is..well, the entire place is just so good. WE found it three weeks ago and have been there FIVE times since. THANK YOU ALL!!!
