You must go everyone
Another excellent visit to this lovely bar and restaurant. Excellent service and attention. Brunch Breakfast absolutely fantastic!!
Their website says they have happy hour every Friday from 4-7. When we got there and asked what drinks were included in the happy hour we were told there was no happy hour and the waitress didn’t know why it was still on the website. Whilst this wasn’t a big issue I do feel it was very much a case of false advertising to entice business given the number of similar style venues in the immediate area.
Overall the food was lovely as were the drinks and service. We will visit again and hopefully Riva will have updated their website to reflect any current offers or events.
Fantastic meal at Riva yesterday. Food was 5 star and also the service. We look forward to going back soon.
Simply the bed resturant in Hale, food fantastic & service excellent, staff always so friendly, nothing too much trouble
Food has always been amazing here, the staff are really friendly and it has a lovely atmosphere. Great vegans options too. The fake & hale pie is outstanding 🤟🏻
Super location with wonderful food. Always a pleasure to come and eat here as quality and service are amazing. A lovely menu for both lunch and dinner with an extensive wine list. A casual meal or something a little more special can be catered for.
Great atmosphere, small and friendly with good service and great food!
Excellent Hale restaurant comprises superb service, good choice on menu and variety of drinks.
Book in advance so as not to be disappointed!!
Fantastic menu and delicious food - will definitely be back!
Great food and wine !
Service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was well cooked & we enjoyed it, but the menu was quite limited. Would like to see more choices, but the elements that were on the menu were well executed.
Fabulous from the off. Lizzie was a pocket rocket of efficiency with a friendly manner so naturally the service was excellent. All the staff were lovely.
Great food too, we had the bar platter and it was all delicious.
Nothing to not love about this place it was excellent. Thank you
Excellent service, great staff and awesome food and coffee cocktails
Good selection of food. Vegetarian food very good.. would be nice if they had a non alcoholic cocktail menu, they will make one if you ask.
Best Beef Wellington on the market...Riva and its team never ever fail to impress......well done all and thank you! .
RIVA is an absolute gem of a restaurant the young team headed by Simon are excellent and the food, service and decor all wonderful. There is always a great atmosphere ensuring everyone a fun night out! Top marks.
The only reason I dropped a star on the overall rating was because the restaurant was lacking one or two items on the food and drinks menus. This was our first visit to Riva and we will definitely go back. The food, ambience and service were excellent. Large portions meant we couldn't manage a desert and I didn't want breakfast in the morning until after 11am (and a session in the gym).
even though it was a last min booking we got a great table , food , Service , excellent
Superb as usual. Very attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere and really great food. What’s not to love?
As a family of 4 with two growing boys we opted for the roast share platter x 2. It was huge and delicious! A couple of slices of lamb,beef and a breast of chicken per person. Roast potatoes, Yorkshire pud, plenty of veg and lots of gravy. Highly recommended. Staff are very friendly and inviting. If you're looking for a good Sunday lunch then Riva is the place to go!
Outstanding food and service and really nice atmosphere. Would say it was the best roast i`ve had in a long time.
Really, really well presented and executed cooking. There is a decent chef working here! Probably one of two best places to get genuinely decent food at average prices in Hale Village.
The food and service were excellent. Really recommend this restaurant and bar.
Incredible food. Me and my wife went last night for the first date night as a married couple. Average price food but a well above average taste. Definitely return sometime soon.
Excellent food and excellent service. Will certainly be returning.
Delicious food and great atmosphere! Will most definitely be back!
Food was amazing, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a lovely experience and it was reasonably priced. Thanks Riva
Excellent local with delicious food and welcoming easy atmosphere
Another excellent meal with efficient,friendly and polite service.
Looking forward to my next visit.
Great food, service & value. My favourite in Hale 👍
Great food, service and ambiance, will be back if we're ever in the area again!
