Lovely birthday meal with my husband and daughter. Food was very nice as always and no complaints at all.
Lovely food, friendly staff. Great relaxed atmosphere after a long walk along the canal from Stretford to Altrincham with two lovely ladies!
Excellent service by polite efficient staff.
Meal of high standard and cooked well.
Good choice of drinks.
Wonderful food - especially if you like a gastro-pub (which I do). Excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere.
Lovely atmosphere , friendly attentive staff and great food that was cooked with love. Unfortunately there was only a limited menu due to understaffing in the kitchen but this did not affect the quality of the food. Steak was perfectly cooked and vegetables were done to perfection. A talented vocalist performed live which added to the relaxed feel. Will definitely be back ❤️
Great food & cocktails, outstanding service and hospitality.
Very good but the beef wellington was different this time.
Another fantastic meal yesterday lunchtime. Food and service excellent and spot on.
It is a pleasure to come here and be looked after like a King!!!
Here's to my next visit.
A fabulous bar and restaurant, the food was amazing, such wonderful friendly staff, we will be back very soon
really nice food beautifully presented. Service was top notch and very friendly. Highly recommended and will visit again soon
Excellent service and very tasty food. Beef Wellington was very nice but not worth £32 I’m afraid.
I also thought the wine was over priced but maybe they are pricing it on their location, ie one of the most affluent areas in the North West.
Been to plenty of restaurants where the food was just as good but much cheaper
Our first visit …very impressed with the food and the attentive service from the staff. Will definitely be returning.
Two of us had the seared tuna salad and the fish was perfectly cooked and pink in the middle which so often is not the case in restaurants. The others had fish and chips which they said was excellent. The service was extremely good without being intrusive.
Always enjoy going to Riva. The good is lovely and great choice. The staff are very friendly and can’t do enough for you.
When ever we can we love yo go there.
Lovely food, had all 3 courses. Cocktails were super. It was great service.

Fantastic food and staff.
Didn’t know what to expect. Went with friends and had a great evening. Moule as good as you can get, wine choice excellent. Great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and will go back again.
Food and ambiance was amazing, sadly they had run out of seared tuna salad which I had been craving all day. They used sea bass instead which I enjoyed
Fantastic food, great service. Nothing negative to say.
If is rave too much I might not get a booking again!! All I can say was that it could be the best restaurant in Hale for a British style menu!
Service was superb and ambience was spot on!! I’ll definitely be back to dine again!!
We love coming to Riva we are always made to feel welcome and the children are also comfortable and welcome. The menu is lovely portions are just right we never leave hungry. One member of staff is truly unforgettable she is wonderful with the children talking to them on the same level giving them time to pick and feel like they are just as important she really is a credit to the team at Riva
Very pleasant relaxed lunch. Excellent but not obtrusive service, good food and well priced. We would go again
First time visiting Riva Hale, everything was fine, service, food .
We sat at a gorgeous cosy little table. The service was excellent….never left unattended for too long. All food was delicious ….couldn’t eat a desert as we were too full!
We shall definitely be booking again.
Visited Riva for the first time and it was honestly so lovely, the food was impeccable and the service was just as good, will definitely be back
