Unconscionable Behavior By Owner!.
The owner, Frank, is a drunk who broke my friend's wine glass and then accosted another female friend demanding that she accept fries that now clearly had shards of glass in it. He was in an absolute drunken stupor and was so rude and out his mind that I, a singer for the evening, left during a set brake. How could I stay after my friends were treated like that? Do yourselves a favor....stay away! The food is just mediocre anyway and why support someone who runs a bar just so he can continue his alcoholic habit.
Rocks in the food and name calling!.
12/22/09 I had dinner with my girlfriend and her 6 year old daughter at Rivara's in Fair Lawn, NJ. Halfway into my Chicken Parm Dinner I bit into a rock, yes a rock. Management told me it was not their fault and that I should contact the chicken company. I now have a chipped tooth, thanks to this place. Management had total disregard for the situation so I was left to contact the Fair Lawn Police and have them respond to Rivara's so I could file a report. At this point we were done eating here, even though we hadn't finish eating. I was handed a check and told if I didn't pay they would call the cops. Weren't they just here? The bill was $26, I dropped $40 dollars on the table and walked out. As walking out I was called the "F" word, white trash, and told not to come again. All in front of a six year old. Like I was planning on it......Stay away."
