    Had a table booked for 7pm for a birthday celebration after drinks at the bar was taken to the table at 7.15pm. The bar area was really great and a place I would go for drinks next time out. The table was on the high level and we were the only table with it being a table of 10. Initially the table was great for the birthday celebration when we came to look at the menu we all had to use our phones light to see the menu. Service really slow by 8.30pm we still hadn't received starters, felt like the service was slow so we would get more drinks. Asked for a recommendation for my main course, the pork cheek was recommended, this was a really poor dish with not a lot of meat the dish was sent back, by the time the waitress came back most of the party had eaten so I didn't get another meal as I didn't want to eat on my own. All in all we left straight after desserts just over 11pm, 4 hours for a meal is really long time again felt like the delay is so you have more drinks. Wouldn't be in a rush to go back

    Apart from a rather limited menu selection, the most disappointing issue was the food quality - my main course being disgraceful! Perhaps the lack of people eating in the restaurant reflected the effort/calibre of cooking - doubtful that any real chef had been near the kitchen when we ate. Non of the staff asked whether we'd enjoyed the mains, noting we had several different servers. Whilst the restaurant looks impressive and its in a good position, the ambience inside was non existence, probably due to the lack of customers dining. Definitely will not be revisiting or recommending the Riva Blu brand. Sadly it spoilt a what was planned to be a special dinner/theatre evening out.

    My wife and I went to Riva Blu for Wine Wednesday, 50% off any bottle of wine. We have been to Riva Blu on Castle Street a number of times and the food and service has always been very good. This occasion was no exception, The food was very good and the wine excellent. This is a great deal if you like your wine. I would also like to mention our waitress, Victoria. She was very friendly and attentive and an asset to the restaurant.

    Beside the prices slightly more expensive than in other restaurants, the food was very good (a bit too salty for my taste, but it was good). The atmosphere of the restaurant was the thing that I liked the most, especially the bar at the entrance.

    After 1 hour and 15 minutes we were told that we can't have the desert menu and we should please go to the bar to finish our drinks. They even took away the plate while my Mom was eating the last slice of Pizza. Very poor booking management. We had a reservation for 2 hours with 4 people. I like the Riva very much for food and also the Service was good the last couple of times. Just that one time was very disappointing...

    Food was great, but service was slow. Think both drinks orders were wrong, though the cocktail I was served was still very nice!

    Unfortunately we had terrible service and meal here, its very busy, they brought us the wrong wine, left us unattended for long periods, failed to fully clear table after service, did not offer us desert menu. We had Sunday lunch and were brought a plate of chicken and potatoes, repeatedly asked were the veg was to several waiters and none came back to us until on the 4th attempt 20 minutes later were told they had run out and they would bring us more potatoes! At this point we had finished our meal and then sat for further 25 minutes waiting for Deseret menu, when waiter finally came we gave up and asked for the bill, the tables around us all seemed to be having issues also. I wont be going back.
