Great customer service – I visit this restaurant every December and have for the past 15 years with 3 business partners. We have never found a more accomodating place starting from our first visit. The food and service excel. We are from South Central Pennsylvania and send everybody we know to La Rivista when visiting New York. The feedback has been beyond positive. The lasagna is superb but my favorite is the filet with mushrooms.
Snobbish, Elegant, Expensive – (27 July 02) We dropped in for a late dinner after seeing a show. The waiter seemed astounded that I ordered no wine or alcohol -- just water -- with my meal. He had to repeat it to make sure that's what I meant. What if I'm an alcoholic and I choose not to drink? The service declined from there. The ambiance and food were okay, but we both felt as if the wait staff was a bit too snobbish for our tastes. And we had to wait forever for the check (with only one other group in the restaurant at the time). A mildly disappointing dining experience.
