    Food, ambience, waiters are all absolutely lovely. The waiters do go above and beyond for you and the chefs in the kitchen looked after my party including my small child (who they made a Mickey Mouse Pizza for without requesting). Drinks were lovely and the restaurant itself was nice. Will definitely be returning - only thing that was a little disappointing was the Host who seated us to the table wasn’t the nicest or friendliest, our table and restaurant waiters were absolutely amazing and had such an elevated customer service level but the seating host did let the experience down.

    Firstly, thanks to the Head Waiter for trying to put things right - it was appreciated. Never had such a cold welcome to a restaurant in my entire life. No 'hello and welcome'....just silence and a face that looked wholly disinterested. Menus put on the table without a word or a smile twice. Asking to take the food order before we'd even had a drink is a no no in my book. Drinks service was appalling - orders took forever and the next one was forgotten twice. Most of the food was fine but one meal was awful with rubbery pasta. Restaurant was jammed which probably explains some of the issues but we pay good money for meals out so expect good service. As I say, the head waiter was charming but sadly his team didn't match his high standards.

    On arrival had to wait for our table around 30 minutes then some confusion over the drinks we ordered as we waited, apart from the rocky start the food & service was excellent with very friendly staff. There was a resident DJ in the bar area and my only criticism was the music was a little too high but that aside we would definitely go back, it’s nice to see traditional Italian dishes & ingredients.

    Visited for daughters 21st birthday, 7pm booking 2 meals we chose weren’t available & I had the last of another choice , really not good at all on a Saturday nights service, some waiting staff were very lack lustre others very good, shame we would have complained but as we were celebrating a birthday it was tricky, we have visited a few time before and always really enjoyed, I’m a chef so understand the workings of the catering industry ! No good though for a city centre restaurant

    Staff were very accomodating, we were a big group, we were offered a table in a room on our own. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, menu was quite varied. Music was too loud in the main dining area. Fortunately we could adjust the volume in room downstairs. Would eat there again.

    Service was poor. It seemed as if the staff forgot about our group as we had to ask where our table was after 25 minutes of waiting, despite having a table booked. We struggled to get service, we were given desert without cutlery and there were multiple tables walking round trying to get served! The food quality and the ambience were great but the service was lacking

    Put us in a basement room on valentines. Was decorated to the best of the restaurant’s ability but it was nowhere near the experience we had imagined. When you pay £20 on a deposit for a booking you expect to be eating in the actual restaurant rather than a space created as a result of overbooking and poor management

    Lovely food. Fair price. Quick service. One waitress that served us and took our order, however, appeared as if she didn't want to be there and looked moody. Other waiters/waitresses that brought food/drinks were pleasant, friendly and engaging, one waitress in particular complimented my wife's dress.

    My friend is gluten free. We asked what desserts she could have that was gluten free and the panna cotta was one that was ok. She was served this only to question herself half way through because it tasted so good, is this actually gluten free? Only to then realise on top of the panna cotta there was biscuit! We asked the server to confirm if her dessert was gluten free to which she checked then confirmed no!! My friend already had eaten half of it by this point. The restaurant manager confirmed that the dessert hadn’t been put through to the kitchen as gluten free! Riva Blu, this is not good enough!!

    A very poor experience that will result in me not going back to what was my go to safe bet in the past. Service was very slow, to sum up what went wrong, had to call the staff over to place the food order as had been waiting a while, 2 bottles of wine sent back as they were terrible, and they wanted £35 a bottle. Food was average, my wife's Pork Cheek pasta dish was very shy of pork. I ordered dessert, it never arrived and our waitress had no clue. Riva blu, you have clearly dropped the standards a lot I guess to make more profit, it won't work as we are not coming back

    Good food and atmosphere, the music was a bit loud. Value for money and service was good although we had to wait for our mains, it was a nice break inbetween courses

    The service was extremely slow. Despite asking several times, we still were waiting nearly an hour for our starters staff were not that friendly, but did offer us a discount at the end.

    After a mixed experience at Riva last month, the restaurant graciously offered us complementary appetisers (olives, arancini, and garlic bread) and Prosecco - plus we were surprised with complementary limoncello at the end of the meal. All of this made us feel very welcome, and I am happy to say that the main negatives from last time were not issues: it was much quieter music-wise, much warmer, and we were not told how long we had the table for as soon as we sat down. All in all, it was a good meal and a lovely evening overall - we felt very well looked after, and it has made us all think much more positively about Riva.

    We had booked the 50% off table but were not offered discount. Service was pathetic from the beginning. Never going there back again
