Went there with a few friends for dinner. Looking forward to a chicken tamale. Disappointed that it was cold over 1/2 of the tamale and then like warm at best. My dining companions meals weren't much better. The place was sticky, dirty and the wait staff was grateful to see the patrons leave. In the words of the exCA governor... More

Been to Riviera several times as a guest of my cousin. They have a small, but nice, outdoor seating area and a very busy and very noisy interior decorated in a rather eclectic style. The food is fine, but not exceptional. For the price, one can do better in SoCal. The shredded beef enchilada was better than the cheese, refried... More

Met some wonderful locals who dine here weekly. The food was excellent. Best kind of place to find. Alcohol is served, staff is friendly and food is definitely very good, authentic mexican fare. Ambiance is casual but festive. I would definitely eat here again.

On our way through town we stopped at the Riviera Mexican Grill for a late lunch. We found the food to be very good, and the wait staff friendly and among the best for service. The kitchen also provided "made to order" which is rare for Mexican casual. The fish tacos (Mahi Mahi) provided an ample portion of tasty fresh... More

First time came here, I don't know why. A great Mexican restaurant. We sat at the patio and it has a great set up. Margarita, salsa and chips and my order was all good. Everybody is so nice and want to help us. Will be back with the rest of the family.

Five us had lunch here at noon on a Sunday. There's nice outdoor seating but we sat inside because there was a singer, and we wanted to talk. The food, drinks and service are fantastic! This is a really great restaurant with reasonable prices and a cool atmosphere!

This surfer themed, family owned business is a staple with locals. Wonderful salsa, tortillas, grilled fish tacos, "charo" beans, and marguerites! Enjoy the free fruit chews on the way out.
