They tried. The ambience was great but the food was a big let down. Boring soup Big mistake chose the lentil dish. Tasted like Oxo cubes and the topping had no body ... simply horrible. The toffee pudding was a stale brick with microwaved runny...More

Food was pleasant but had to pay extra for veg & potatoes which put the price up to a far more expensive meal than we had planned! Felt very conspicuous sitting in the middle when empty tables at the sides would have been nicer! We...More

The Riverview has had its ups and downs over the years. It was once a fine dining venue, making it a destination in its own right, even if you weren't going to the theatre. It then had a change of management and a dramatic fall...More

Lacks atmosphere and food mediocre. I had pigeon breast which is served v rare on a white sauce, but when stained with lots blood it became unappetising. My tiramisu was poor, and texture collapsed as if it had been frozen. My husband's meal was satisfactory...More

The restaurant is at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre and we were here as a birthday treat to see "Toast", starring Matthew Kelly. The play was due to start at 7.45pm so eating before we travelled was probably not a good idea. We could have eaten...More

We had a lunch for a large group here, which is always a challenge for a restaurant as you need to get all meals out together and keep standards up. The food was very good and we had good choices in our deal. Fish lovely...More

Yet again the Riverview came up trumps, not just for convenience, but the food was much better than our previous visit 11 months earlier, possibly because we were a party of 6 not 11, so more manageable for the kitchen. The portions are perfect, enough...More
