Riva Cocktail Bar and Restaurant
Our well laid out bar will serve you up some fantastic drinks, with a wide choice of mixers, some great tasting classic cocktails, along with a few from our special cocktail selection to really get you into the swing. Alternatively, you might prefer a longer drink, a Moretti beer, a cask ale which is Cheshire Cat locally sourced.
To help you to get into the relaxed mood our we have a warm rustic feel with funky seating and chunky tables, along with stylish industrial light fittings, all creating a warm ambience. With some great chilled music to sway along to you will be looked after by our friendly and personable team.
First time in the restaurant and thought the food, service was very good.
However, we were seated in the far corner and felt a draught in that area. It wouldn’t put me off returning to the restaurant, but I would ask to sit elsewhere next time.
Fantastic place to eat! Sunday roast was great! Staff very friendly! I would and have highly recommend this restaurant. 10/10
Great food, friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere
Had a wonderful meal at Riva in Hale very tasty food and helpful friendly staff. All in all a very good experience.
It would have been nice to asked if we wanted more drinks or if everything was ok a little more - we also rescued a gent who had fallen out the door as the Handel broke - a thank you ladies or would you like a drink for being so helpful would have been nice - overall nice food good price - just a wee bit more customer service and would be perfect
Had great evening with friends here. Staff friendly, helpful and really looked after us. Food and atmosphere great. Will be back soon
Perfect location ,vibe & food.live singer on as it was a Thursday evening .
Meal beautifully cooked. Staff couldn’t do enough for you.
Great atmosphere, little cold each time the door opened so see if you can book a table at the back
Our first visit was a Saturday lunch time. The service, food and the atmosphere was great. it was so nice we returned the following Saturday morning for brunch. the full english breakfasts were AMAZING, once again the service was fantastic.
We're booking for Sunday lunch very soon. can't wait. This family owned Restaurant is a GEM. So glad we discovered it.
Good atmosphere with live music, attentive staff and food great
Great to dine in a family owned restaurant who serve excellent food with a smile on their faces
Excellent food, nice atmosphere. Would recommend without question.
Love this restaurant. The staff are friendly. The food
I recommend this restaurant for any occasion
We were welcomed by a lovely barman who made us feel very welcome and sat us a the bar whilst waiting for our table to be ready (we arrived half an hour early) . The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was lovely and good value for money. There was a relaxed feel to the place and you could easily spend a few hours in the place happily drinking cocktails or eating. My wife and I were very impressed and will recommend it to friends and family as well as popping back later in the year.
Great place, service and food only let down was the table near the window/ bar. When we go again that will be avoided 😄
Great food and service , staff all very attentive and quick with both drink and food orders , will be back
Early Sunday lunch so quiet anyway. We have been trying Sunday lunches lots of places but this was definitely the best. The staff were all lovely too.
We booked a Saturday Evening meal. I have to say all the staff were great, particularly Jonathan and Liz. Food was great, (we are constantly disappointed in other places). Good menu selection and specials. We will be returning.
Service was very good. Bar staff and waitress service very attentive. Happy to advise on menu choice.
Fantastic food , friendly staff ,exquisite setting . Good music . Would recommend.
I've eaten at Riva 4 times in the last 12 months and in my opinion it's the best restaurant in Hale.
Good , friendly service, excellent food and the restaurant always has a nice vibe.
Great service and even better food. Will definitely be going back.
Our second visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it, staff and service is great
Very pleasant evening & wine was good.
The food was fine but ideally the pie’s pastry could have been less heavy
Lovely ambiance in the evening with a super selection of food. The gluten free menu was excellent and the food was well presented and very tasty. Will definitely go again.
good meal, great service, the only issue was on a cold evening, it's not very comfortable sat in the window seats, but not unbearable.
Super friendly and relaxed. Food and ambience were fantastic. Had the roast dinner - so much care and attention to detail - beautifully presented and very tasty! Will defo be back!
We had a lovely evening with friends . It’s the second time we’ve been & we have thoroughly enjoyed it on both occasions. The staff & management are very welcoming, the food is lovely, both in a very nice atmosphere
As usual, Riva never disappoints. Great food, great atmosphere and brilliant entertainment on Thursday nights. Love this place x
Great food and service. We really like the atmosphere in Riva.
Our second visit and would definitely recommend. On our first visit we booked late, we had Sunday lunch which was excellent but there was an item on the menu which I ordered and was told was no longer available which I understood as the restaurant was extremely busy, sadly on our second visit which was booked early for 1 o’clock we went back for Sunday lunch, there were hardly any diners but once again there was something unavailable on the menu. It wasn’t a massive problem but it would be better to let diners know when handing out the menu of anything missing. Staff are very friendly and food is very good, we will be attending one of their week day evenings when they have music as it also comes highly recommended.
Great food, service and atmosphere at Riva, we had prawns followed by Chateubriand, no room for desert but a couple of cocktails at the bar. The food was absolutley top notch, an all round great evening, I would definitely recommend.
Really enjoyable meal on Friday night, service was quite slow but the staff were really friendly and professional.
It was very busy so we weren’t surprised the service was a little slower.
We last visited in May and the menu had changed...really lovely!
Great staff and more importantly, good food. I would definitely return.
Booked a table for two on Friday, was a very enjoyable night, great food, cocktails and fantastic customer service , live music Brilliant, all in all a great night will def return
Nice atmosphere but quite noisy. Staff were pleasant . Average restaurant, average food. Nothing bad it special to report.
The food is lovely. Nice choices. The staff are so nice and friendly. Helpful.
This is our second visit. And we’re booked again
Fabulous value for money attentive staff and possibly the best steak and ale pie I have ever had ! Highly recommend Riva
Cant recommend Riva enough, such a fab place in Hale, food good, staff professional, welcoming, amazing at their jobs and service excellent, owners are so helpful and attentive!
