I felt like I should be in Europe! It was so beautiful and the lighting in the evening is perfect! The food also was very good and had great flavor!

We had a substantial amount for our breakfast voucher to order a great breakfast and beverage. Service was attentive and professional. A beautiful restaurant that gives the guest a reason to linger for more coffee.

This hotel and restaurant is marvelous, such a unique place to visit.
The patio is great, so much to see around with the balconies, paints, even the sky, great photos.
It is good for couples, definitely, a special spot. But it is great for any type of visit, even with kids. Although the menu may be a little challenging for picky little ones (like moray kid). Anyway. You should visit the place, and if you can have a bite at the restaurant. I had the roasted Brussels sprouts, cooked to perfection, the right amount of crispy, not burnt, and tasty. I also had a salad with spinach and orange slices, fresh and delicious and the shrimp, wow, so good - large shrimps, fresh, al dente and the sauce was so tasty.
The wine selection is also very good and there are size options!
At the end I could not resist try a dessert, delicious as well. The attention was also very good, I was there by my self, they took good care of me. So, all and all I highly recommend this place.

Love the ambience of the place. But that’s about it. I expected the food to be better for a fine dining restaurant. My ribeye was bland with parts that were super salty. Calamari was very salty. Service wasn’t great. It felt like we were forgotten. The only highlights were the desserts. For the price of the food, i don’t feel it’s worth it. I would not come back to eat here.

A fabulous array of tantalizing foods from all over the globe and well-done! The atmosphere and architecture were beautiful. While they have a museum, the entire site is a museum and you can spend the entire day there and see Riverside's rich history. Don't miss it if you are in Riverside
