Tequila for EVERYBODY!

The fare is delish but the tequila is delectable!! I am not a serious drinker, but the citrus-infused tequila that Rivera serves beats anything else on the menu. The service is hit or miss (I'm thinking since its close to the LA Live, it stays pretty busy.) As a tourist, I've only been here twice but I'll definitely come back again!

Overrated!

We felt we were at the tv show ""Chopped"" where every meal served by the waiter is followed by a detailed description of all the ingredients that were used to create the dish. The description itself takes longer than eating the rather minuscule portion. I can't recall which one pained me the most having to sign the check or my stomach screaming from hunger. \r \r

Great escape from L.A. Live

This is the perfect place to go when you want to get out of the chaos that is L.A. Live. It is right across the street, but is much nicer than the restaurants you'll find around the Staples Center. The drinks are great and I do agree with the reviews that say it is the best Latin Restaurant in L.A. and quite possibly one of the best restaurants in town!

good food...Bad customer service and inept management

I hosted an event for 19 physicians and agreed to sign a contact well in advance. First they lost the contract. Then I contacted them to add three seats to my party. They first refused stating they had no extra chairs in the entire restaurant. Then they agreed to add three seats to our special contracted table, but when I arrived with the party they reniged. They forced the host and two others to separate from t... view more

Excellent Food & Service

Had dinner here at Rivera for my husband's birthday. We sat in the "Samba" room and it was perfect - elegant and not to loud, especially compared to the rest of the restaurant. Our server was terrific, offering explanation of the concept and menus. The food was outstanding - musts include the pretty tortilla's with flowers, pork shoulder, rib-eye, and stuffed piquito peppers. We will definitely be back... view more

A little too much flavor in everything

So you can still read my original post below but I have to upgrade Rivera to a 4 and I have a feeling that I will be going back a lot. Just had an awesome lunch there. The open face tacos (black cod) were sooo good. The bread they give while you wait is more like a gordita without the fillings with butter on the side. Very yummy. The chocolate tart in drunken pineapple is flourless so I was easily enamored. \r ... view more

Top Tapas

Rivera presents Spanish and South American delicacies and very innovative takes on the traditional tapas spots of Mid City. \r \r In fact, the very thing that sets Rivera apart from its neighbors begins right at that bar. The bar manager has carefully concocted the restaurant’s specialty drink menu. Their take on a margarita includes fresh lime and floating cucumbers for a refreshing relaxer.

Best Tortillas Ever!

I went here with a friend late night after an event we had downtown and we found an amazing, inexpensive menu! Everything on the late night menu is gourmet, I never thought I would find duck on a late night menu, but I did and it was fantastic. Also, they make their corn tortillas at the restaurant and I don't even like corn tortillas and these were outstanding. Rivera will be a place that I will eat/drink at everyt... view more

LOVE IT!

AMAZING AMBIANCE, A BEAUTIFUL MENU, EXQUISITE COCKTAILS (THE BEST I'VE HAD WHILE LIVING IN LOS ANGELES), AND FRIENDLY STAFF. I LOVE THIS PLACE, FELL INTO IT BY ACCIDENT ONE NIGHT AFTER LEAVING A LAKER'S GAME AND HAVE BEEN BACK 3X SINCE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT. TRY THE TEQUILA TASTING, IT'S AMAZING (EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT A TEQUILA FAN) +++++ -CHUCK

BRAVO!

Awesome eatery! Great location! The service is top notch! The bar has exclusive choices of tequilla and a huge wine and beer list. Besides the spectacular decor this place has amazing food. The sauces are exquisite. We had an appetizer special which was a short rib tamale...can't wait to go back to have this again. The mole is super tasty!!
