After two weeks of traveling in China, to find a European style restaurant with terrific Italian food in Dalian was real treat. Jennifer and her staff were attentive with their service and offered some great recommendations. I had the lasagna which ranks up there with anything I have had in Boston's North End. And the Basil Lemonade was wonderfully refreshing.... More

This is the second come I come to Riviera. I had the lobster soup, the homemade pasta and the salmon stake and all were delicious. The ambience is very calming and the host is always here and always friendly. Definitely recommend it.

Authentic food in a nice and elegant restaurant in downtown Dalian. Recommended if you miss the original choice of dishes the Italian cuisine has to offer. Friendly owner, eager to have its guest experience real Italian food. I d suggest more training to the waiters ( food knowledge and all) to improve a bit on the service side.

I had a rather negative experience at this restaurant. We were the first persons to sit on that evening and the first to order. After 30min there was still no sign of our very quick to cook dishes (burger and fries, and grilled salmon with fries). Our waiter seemed upset with the (many) people in the open kitchen about our...

For me definitely the preferred Italian Spanish restaurant in Dalian. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere both for a romantic dinner or any business dinner with style. Dishes are prepared nicely in the open kitchen and stable in quality over time. Jennifer, Rivieras owner, takes good care of the guests and is mostly available for a good chat. By the... More

A super restaurant in the centre of Dalian. A very comfortable atmosphere and the owner is most welcoming and gives a fantastic overview of the choices on offer from the menu. Good selection of food from fish, steak, veal and pasta. Wine selection is also very good and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be paying the Riviera another visit if... More

Enjoyed dinner with business associates. The restaurant was located 1 block from the New World Hotel where I was staying. The food was very good especially the warm bread served before our meal. I ordered the penne pasta with a simple red sauce. It was very tasty.

The food is amazing. The service is almost amazing. I would rate it 5 stars but the owner came in our first night there and obnoxiously took a chair from our table and loosely apologized since we were eating and it wasn't busy at all. (Plenty of other chairs at empty tables to take.) It was just rude. We went... More
