Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been waiting for 3 months to dine out in a any Restaurant, & thankfully I was given the opportunity last Friday night to experience a delightfully cooked Salmon at the Riviera Bar & Grill. The Staff appeared to have extra spring in their step & the decor appeared to be recently painted giving a freshened appearance. We were at the 8pm & final sitting for the evening which allowed us not to be rushed which we all appreciated. Having a limit of only 10 patrons was a rare experience to have in a popular Restaurant.

I still have the taste of this meal on my tongue washed down with a splash of Pinot as I write this, I had to share the goodness. Grrrrrreat steak served a la room service as I’m too tired to be presentable. Grain fed wagyu rump so delish... pleasantly seasoned, superbly tender tasty meat cooked medium rare to my liking. Served with a side of roasted garlic potatoes with some rocket salad. The other reviews said the steak was excellent and the people who spoke these words were right. Can’t beat local meat! Am full and happy.

Its my place to stay and eat when I'm in Tamworth. The staff are friendly and attentive. I was greeted by a young lady at the counter who gave me a free upgrade of my room. The dinner menu had changed since my last visit. It was amazing. I started with dozen Sydney rock oysters followed by a Jacks Creek steak cooked to my liking served with sides. And my taste buds were completed with crepes for dessert. Great glass of wine.

To have a 6:00 p.m. booking and have food arrive at nearly 8:00 p.m. is extremely poor. A lesson in customer service: the fact that you’re having a busy night with a function, is of no interest to me as a customer. As this is simply saying that you’re making plenty of money that night, and as a customer I’m paying twice. For your quite expensive menu ($40 steak is on the pricy end); and with a very long wait.

Dear Peter, Perhaps this review was intended for another restaurant in Tamworth, as we did not have any functions this evening or this month for that matter, nor do we have any bookings under the name of Peter Ryan. It's telling that you went to the trouble of creating a brand new Trip Advisor Account and Google Reviews account just to leave us a 1 Star review today. This is the first 1 Star review we have ever received. With regards to the Jack's Creek 3 time award winner of the Worlds Best Steak that you mentioned is on the pricey end, we sell Jack's Creek beef for the lowest price in Tamworth for a full service restaurant. Perhaps you are more accustomed to Club or Pub food with self-service. If there is ever a wait for food then we are the first to apologise, but the reality is no one in our restaurant waited 2 hours for their meal tonight or any other night for that matter. We wish we were making "plenty of money" as you put it, but due to COVID local businesses are suffering and writing defamatory reviews like this doesn't help anyone. We will not tolerate deliberately misleading, false, slanderous reviews which tarnish our good standing reputation.

I stayed at Best Western Tamworth on my road trip as the reviews and in house blurb for the Riviera Restaurant looked good, however have proven a great disappointment. For a treat I ordered the Wagyu steak with roasted garlic potatoes, with a Parmeson, Pear and Rocket Salad, and garlic/herb bread. The steak was dry with no flavour and I felt that I could have been eating a sandshoe! The peppercorn sauce was very salty. The roasted garlic potatoes had been roasted at some stage - however were microwaved. The rocket lettuce had no dressing or flavour, and the bread had been microwaved into a hard lump. All very unpalatable and very expensive. So disappointing as this was a special indulgence for me!!

This is no run of the mill hotel restaurant, this is a serious eatery with seriously good food and great service. Even if you arent staying at the hotel, drop in for a meal. You will be treated really well and you'll love your meal - and they make some super cocktails.

We came from Sydney to stay the weekend and had dinner and we were so impressed on how delicious the food was. The staff and owner were very friendly, attentive and went over the menu to explained some of the dishes which was really nice as it was our first time there. The food was so amazing and delivered a traditional Italian meal with heaps of flavour. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection! We will definitely return to try more dishes.

An excellent evening. Delightful menu. So many choices and freshly made pasta. We had bruschetta the tomatoes were so tasty. Followed by generous serving of ribs plump and the meat just fell of the bones. Sirloin steak cooked just right. Fabulous wine list. We didn’t get to dessert saw a few being served and the panacotta looked so very yummy. Definitely recommend.

While the food was nice the ratings on this restaurant did not match our experience. The table water had a "taste" like it had been sitting around in a fridge. I could not help but wonder if it was a ploy to sell us an $8 bottle of filtered water. The food was tasty enough but it was a little on the pricey side. The waitress while pleasant talked way too much.

Beautiful restaurant to dine in ONLY if you are given a table on the ground floor. We arrived at the restaurant dressed up and all ready to enjoy a fancy dinner. We were then ushered up to the second floor and to our dismay given a table in what look like a “function room with some pop-up table and chairs”. I would totally understand and accept being put in a function room and not a restaurant if this was managed at the time we made the reservation. But to do this to a guest at arrival is just not right. The manager who was in charge of reservations and table allocation did not once came up to us to explain or apologise. The lady servicing the second floor was lovely and did her best to make our meal enjoyable.

Having made a reservation, my partner and I arrived on time. It was a warm summer evening and we walked into a stuffy restaurant where the air conditioning fan was turned down...and this was the beginning to my disappointing experience. The waitress was accommodating to my enquiry if the air conditioning was actually working by making some adjustments but the condescending remark made by the owner to myself - "Feeling the heat Dear" did not improve my impression of the venue. We waited 45 minutes without a drinks order nor a meal order being taken. So we walked out. No one tried to intervene as to why we were leaving, nor did I receive a phone call (as they did have my contact number as I had made a reservation) to investigate why we had left without placing an order.

We were very excited for the dinner after seeing good reviews. Unfortunately 2 tables left as we waited an hour for dinner and then out came 3 out of the 4 meals . The 4th meal took 30mins longer then the rest. The kids chips and nuggets were brilliant . The kids Mac and cheese on the other hand was absolutely disgusting. I cant remember the last time we didn't pay for a meal but we refused to pay because we actually had to take our son to Macca's afterwards. My husband had the meatlovers pizza which was fine .I made the big mistake of choosing a gnocci . The sauce was lovely ,the gnocci on the other hand was like hard balls of left over dough my son had made out of his recent play dough .I struggled to swallow 3 and then decided that was it for me . The rocket and pear salad I had on the side was great but I suppose it's rocket and pear so not hard to messup . Super disappointing. Felt very sorry for the waitresses who were actually nice people and tried their best but couldn't help that the chefs couldn't keep up or produce good food .

Everything was "as usual"- lovely food and excellent service. We always enjoy our visits and Christmas lunch was no exception. Even with a crowd all arriving around the same time the service was smooth and impeccable and the menu was varied and interesting. Thanks again Riviera - we will be back.

We had dinner for a special night out. Wine entrée and mains arrived fairly promptly but then the service vanished! We sat for forty minutes with finish courses in front of us while waitresses passed our table ushered in new clients or headed for the kitchen. We were totally ignored. We had intended having dessert and coffee but finally abandoned the idea, paid our bill at the bar and left. We are local and have patronised this place before but it is now off our list of places to eat.

Lucky I made a reservation at this fabulous restaurant, very popular and busy. The staff were exceptional and very attentive even with the restaurant full they consciously checked in with our table to see that all was going well throughout the evening. The gnocchi was cooked perfectly (al dente) and melted in your mouth and the flavour of the beef Ragu was amazing, word out from the others at my table was that the pork belly was very tasty with generous pieces and very filling and the house specialty of Cacio E Pepe was delicious. Nothing nicer to share time with friends at a lovely restaurant that serves quality produce and always with a smile.
