The food is fresh and delicious. I have tried many items on the menu but a must is the shrimp. It is lightly fried with a sauce that is the best I've ever tasted. It comes with several roasted veggies and cream potatoes. The seafood crepes are fantastic as well. Scrumptious desserts are a must! Great lunch or dinner!

I stumbled upon La Riviera while looking for another lunchtime restaurant, and I am certainly glad I did! Since they had only been open for around fifteen minutes when I arrived, I was the only diner for a short period and thus received immediate and friendly service. I opted for the Southwest Chicken lunch, which included two small chicken breasts... More

This restaurant is one of our favorites. The food is excellent at very good prices. It is never crowded. Can't understand why more people haven't found it.

The people are friendly, atmosphere is quiet and nice. Food is fabulous! It is very upscale but not stuffy. I have had the steaks and salmon - all cooked to perfection. Waitstaff is attentive. One of my favorite places to eat. Nice enough for a special occasion but you are welcomed just the same after a hot football game.

This restaurant is quite honestly in a rather unfortunate location, tucked into a strip mall it looks rather ordinary from the outside and has the unfortunate addition of the word bakery in its name so you do not realize it is actually a very nice fine dining restaurant unless you research first. Everything I ordered was delicious and the prices... More

Disorganized. Possibly understaffed or staff in need of training. Two thirds of our table's meals were delivered. The missing plate was blamed on the kitchen with a promise the chef would personally deliver it. Didn't happen. Plate arrived after other diners finished their meals. No chef. No manager offering his apology (although we were informed he was seated at another... More

I have had some good meals here and at least one terrible meal. This week I had some great Shrimp Risotto with asparagus. Very fine! My guest had the beef medallions which were fine but his potatoes were very similiar to what you would have at a fast food fried chicken place. I was served beef here once that had... More

Gathering of 9 friends/co-workers last night at La Riviera. Not busy but our party and another good sized one. Slow service. The salad I love the most, Strawberry and Brie was bitter. 1 strawberry sliver, a couple of pecans, no discernible dressing. Fried shrimp was bland, potatoes were lukewarm. Creme Brûlée was just okay. A little bland. Took forever to... More

The best restaurant in the bryan/college station area. Food was fresh but slow in being served but well worth the wait.
