Very well cooked meals, in a good atmosphere and very good service. Expensive, but worth it - a taste of luxury.

Have been going to this restaurant for many many years. Well-run, attentive staff, and tasty food. It can be rich.
We live walking distance to this restaurant but I hadn't been in years. We just came with a group of 6 for a celebratory occasion. One whole wall of the main room is glass, overlooking a small garden which is a lovely ambience. The rest...More

Outstanding food and wine in this rather small, noisy, expensive, welcoming, well-run, more-than-a-French bistro, where everyone looks happy including the servers and the owner.
Rivoli is one of our go to's when we want a good meal in a cozy environment. My wife had the filet mignon in a wonderful reduction. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly slightly browned but still soft. The texture was delightful. It...More
