"Every time we go there the service has been outstanding. We got seated right on the clock. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Also very fast. The room was at a very reasonable noise level. Meaning you can talk and not that it matter but we got to enjoy the show with the fireworks. Highly recommended"

"Riva is very convenient if you are attending a show at Shakespeare theatre. They offer a 20% discount for theatre goers. I typically thoroughly enjoy Riva cuisine, but on this occasion I did not. I found my swordfish, which was a special, to be dry and somewhat disappointing. I did enjoy their Cesar salad, but found it a bit odd that they charge .50 cents per anchovy if you ask for anchovies. The tuna appetizer is lovely, very high quality tuna.
The view is lovely if you can get a window table and all in all the food and service are typically above par although it is a tad expensive.

"We went to Riva for lunch before going to see a play at the Shakespeare Theatre. There is a 20% reduction in your bill if you have theater tickets. The food was good and I'd go there again if I was going to the theater, but I wasn't overly impressed with the whitefish I had. Our waiter was great. We did enjoy the view of the Lake from our window table. Be forewarned that there may be a lot of little kids with parents having lunch ... the ones there on that day were well-behaved and so were their parents."

"We've eaten here many times and generally had very decent experiences, given that prices are tourist-level and service can be perfunctory. This occasion fell short for two reasons: (1) my order of grilled swordfish apparently spent too much time on the grill and was pretty tough (my wife's swordfish special was fine), and (2) someone else's (higher) bill was initially charged to my credit card and the receipt given to me to sign. I objected to the last, and the server apologized and brought a corrected receipt, assuring that the wrong charge would be fixed separately somehow. I agreed, though my wife was doubtful, and after a couple of days the correct charge did appear on my account. So, no major harm done. Soup, salad, gelato, coffee and wine were good."

"We had7:30 reservations, had to change to 8:30, come to find out that this time of year they die around 7:30. Not only did they stay open for us, but they treated us great, didn't rush us, and the manager bought us dessert because we were the only ones in there and he felt bad! I was fine with it! We had an older gentleman that was just as nice as could be, just treated us great! Food was phenomenal, great view of the city skyline, kind of hard to find if you walk through the mall though! Overall... Expensive but great food from a great restaurant!"

"Went to Riva prior to a show at the Shakespeare Theater. The view is spectacular and the service is excellent. The night we went it was very quiet so the ambiance was a bit underwhelming. Eveyone enjoyed their food. The the pappardelle was a bit dry - it had not been well-tossed in the sauce prior to the noodles lumping together. We had ordered one dish with regular potatoes instead of sweet potatoes and got both on the plate. The food is pricey too compared to similar dishes elsewhere. Otherwise, it was a nice meal, great tasting food, and amazing views along the water. There is also a discount for those showing their Shakespeare Theater tickets."

"A wide ranging selection of fish, prepared as you wish or with unique speciality recipes. Always a good spot to entertain friends before a Shakespeare performance, with a view of the city and Lake Michigan."
