"Good food. Great view of the city. Best view of the downtown skyline from almost any restaurant. Get a window view. Lavash and bread basket were top notch. Seafood was well portioned and nicely prepared. Steaks came out a bit rare for our guests, but they accommodated and reheated them to order. The place gets really crowded in the summer, so going on a cool spring day allowed us to spend a Friday night at a topline restaurant where the waiters had time to give us awesome service."

"We enjoyed our evening, table by the window, best lemon drop; interesting menu, fabulous sea food and Drew's hostility and experience made this a memorable evening. Wednesday evening before Chicago Shakespeare's Othello. Thicket holders can receive 20% off their Riva bill and a parking discount."

"Four of us enjoyed Riva after spending the afternoon at the Pinot Noir Days at Navy Pier. I was the only one of the group who had been here before but everyone enjoyed their time.
One of the woman in our group had a drop of wine on her sweater after attending the tasting at Pinot Noir Days and our server was so kind and removed the spot."

"We had a split decision on dinner. My husband had the shrimp cocktail which he said was very good. Salads were the typical Caesar and baby greens-nice but nothing special. My husband ordered the filet which he really enjoyed! I ordered the halibut/lobster risotto, one of the specials of the evening. The risotto was very tasty, but my halibut was dry. Usually halibut is very mild and moist, but it almost seemed that this piece sat under the warmer too long. We had the au gratin potatoes for a side, and they were not good. We usually really enjoy our Riva dinners. Perhaps this was just an off night."

"While I have enjoyed Riva's in the past watching my good friend light up with delight at the beautiful setting, the terrific food and warm and welcoming service was the best part of our Saturday evening dinner. She had planned to eat "light" and both of us consumed more food than we ever imagined - it was all excellent - her bisque and my gumbo, her fish with beautiful risotto and my cioppino. We left very little - and she enjoyed a glass of wine. We sat at the windows and I loved watching her marvel at the glorious location. It's a wonderful place and I know I'll return again"

"Good food and great service by Miguel! It is so nice to sit on the 2nd floor and watch all of the boats and people.
Don't pay to park in the general pier parking. Riva has valet parking and it's about $10 cheaper!"

"I always choose this restaurant whenever attending a Shakespeare play or visiting Navy Pier. The food is delicious and there's a great wine list. The beet salad and swordfish are particular favorites, paired with a New Zealand sauvignon blanc. The service from everyone is attentive and knowledgeable. It's quiet enough to have a good conversation, and the window view is spectacular. Although pricey, the restaurant is worth it---and I appreciate the Shakespeare discount. I'll continue to visit this wonderful restaurant whenever I'm at Navy Pier!"

"As Riva is the only "fine" dining restaurant on Navy Pier, it has a captive audience, especially for the pre/post theatre crowd. Lovely atmosphere and view. Service was very good. We both had halibut, one from the regular menu and the other from the specials, nicely prepared but nothing special. The beet salad is very good. Good value with theatre 20% off."

"Upscale place with good food. We really enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent and it was fun to watch the fireworks. Ask for a seat near the window for viewing and look online first to see what time the show is (on Saturdays in the summer). It is touristy but good and a fun place to go."

"I eat here often and have never been disappointed because the food is presented beautifully and the taste is Heavenly. Can't wait to go back because April is Soft Shell Crab season and Riva's has the best I've ever had. The Dover Sole was also a masterpiece with a taste to match. Riva's has one-of-a-kind ambiance with it's gigantic windows and a view of the lake. There is valet parking for the restaurant, and a discount on food and parking if you are going to the Shakespeare Theater."

"We were visiting from out of town and the location was wonderful as we were also visiting the CST.
The reservations were early and we had a prime seat by the window overlooking the water and city skyline.
Our food overall was good and the wine list was solid.
