Salmon and Snapper dishes are really well prepared and taste good. The service can be a little better but it doesn't hurt the restrurant's business or the taste ! The house vegetable, roasted green beans, is a good choice and addition to the main meal We will return to try other menu options.

We eat here fairly regularly for lunch. The food is always delicious. The Cuban is a favorite with fries and house made ketsup.

This was our first visit to Rivera's and we loved it! My wife and I were curious to try it as a friend highly recommended it to us. We each had a glass of red wine @$6.50 each which I felt was reasonable. We tried a couple of the appetizers: grilled tomatoes with goat cheese and a lime/olive oil dressing... More

Service was impeccable & food was delicious! Presentation was very nice as well. Growing up in Miami, this place reminds me of some of the Cuban food I had growing up.

Had 4 for a business lunch. Had a couple minute wait and staff was very attentive and kept us informed when the table would be ready. We each had something different and we all raved about the flavors and quality of the meal. I had the salmon with the most delicious rice I can recall. The gentleman the ordered the... More

If you are looking for something different than southern fare, then give this place a try. It's got a great location, great feel inside, and the food is unique. We had the fried plantains starter which was really good. The guava butter served with the bread tastes like a buttered jelly. The pecorino rice (like parmesan) was yummy. Our steaks... More
