La Riviera is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Took way too long to bring the food and the ahi Tuna was terrible it had way too much soy sauce and when we return the plate they said “oh” and charged me the full price my wife only took 2 or 3 bites. When I asked them she said oh the manager went home (at930pm on Saturday night) so they only can take off half the price I had to pay for something that we didn’t eat

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They don't return phone calls. Service is unacceptable. Despite web info, the place is not open on Monday. There were only the 2 of us in the dining room although there were numerous noisy people at the bar. Don't know how they stay in business. our credit card was not returned at the end of the meal, causing dozens of phone calls. Do not go there although the food is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our experience was great. Due to 2people not showing up for work that evening, our server was also the bartender and performed both functions without getting flustered. She was a joy matched only by the food preparation.
