Chicken roast was very over cooked
The food and service were both very good. When I expressed surprise at the voluntary service charge of 12.5% the manager immediately changed the bill for one without service charge and I was able to decide the size of the tip to give. I was very pleased and surprised at this response.
I am a frequent visitor to the Rivington, often eating with a friend before or after a film at the Picturehouse. I usually have a gin cocktail, The dressed crab and a portion of chips.
I love it and the service is always excellent !
Very good range of food and excellent quality. Can be a bit noisy if the table is close to the bar. Not keen on the fact that dogs are allowed into the establishment.
Superb food and excellent non intrusive but attentive service. Order anything fish, all four of us had fish and all agreed it was excellent.
Food and drinks wasn’t too bad but the Service was excellent
Great lunch at the Rivington. You must try the bread it’s amazing.
Very good service and the food was very enjoyable. I was glad to be sitting upstairs as it was quite noisy downstairs. The cost of the meal reflected the standard- value for money and I would re-visit if in the area
The most fabulous selection of gin and food and wine is excellent. My friend, myself and her 3 year old daughter ate in the garden. The kid's menu is free when 2 adults eat from the main menu, excellent value. We started with the prawns (delicious) and even more delicious were the scallops with green pea puree and bacon.
Good food and lovely staff, but a bit expensive.
Great service as always. Relaxed and friendly with good good.
We had friends visiting from Hong Kong at short notice last week and it was their youngest daughter’s birthday. I got a booking the same afternoon and the Manager, Andrei, and his team made sure we had a wonderful night. Food was excellent (as always) and they did a beautiful “Happy Birthday” on the little girl’s dessert plate. Our guests were very happy and impressed by the high standard of quality and service. Thanks Andrei and staff, look forward to seeing you all again soon! CLARE W. Greenwich.
The food is good and restaurant ok. Service great. Average value for money
Grilled spicy chicken tasty but a bit dry. Great moonshot gin & tonic and excellent service. Bit warm for comfort in restaurant.
Amazing food! Great local place
Everything was done well from food to service and the pace of the establishment. To find fault would be overly critical for this place correctly pitched at their clientele. Compliments to all.
Great quality meat and service. Fin recommendations a bonus. Thank you
Revisited one of our favorite London local restaurants. The weather didn't suit for the outdoor gin terrace but ti looked great. Instead we had our drinks inside a the bar with a huge selection to choose from, each paired with the perfect mixer/garnish. Check out the gin hour for special promotions. We ate early on Saturday evening, the service was warm and attentive. A shared starter of potted shrimp is a staple on the menu and always pleases, followed by two mains of lamb and pork. The food was nicely presented and full of flavour. A gin to finish and we left as the restaurant was full for a Saturday night service.
The area has an identity crisis- bar- food tables- hot upstairs - no loos upstairs - and sad chill specific jazz by a poor singer -
The food was only ok- the lamb chops ordered medium- v rare- sent back- burnt chips up next -clearly cooking from frozen doesn’t work - the barrate was so cold you couldn’t taste it -
They took the returned food off the bill but such a disappointment
I was celebrating my birthday here with my husband before going to an event at the Cutty Sark later in the evening. We arrived shortly after they opened and were greeted warmly and able to choose our table.
Our aperitifs were good and my husbands G&T was good value for £6. We ordered house wine to go with our meal and it was delicious but only realised it was £30 when we received the bill.
I ordered scallops, bacon with a pea purée and a side of buttery mash. All delicious and not too filling but I would have preferred it hotter. Decided not to return as thought it would probably be put in a microwave to reheat. My husbands monkfish and prawn masala with coconut rice was tasty but not outstanding.
My dark chocolate tart and clotted cream was wonderful and I would definitely recommend.
If we were in that area again and wanted a non-chain restaurant meal we would return.
Very attentive service in a pleasant atmosphere on the mezzanine level. Fish of the day was a very tasty bream.
The food was terrible. Toast overdone to the point of being biscuit-like. The beans and egg on the English breakfast looked congealed as if they had been sitting for hours and then microwaved.
On the plus side the young lady that served us was very polite, friendly and apologetic.
We returned the food and were not charged. Won’t be going back.
The restaurant was implementing some training when we got there but were running over. They didn’t open the doors for our booking until 15 minutes after it was meant to start, about 30 minutes after the notice on the door said they would be finished with training. No member of staff came out to explain they were running late, we were just left sitting and waiting outside, and no one apologised when we did finally get let in and seated. Overall that’s quite poor service and something that basic manners and service should have addressed easily. We accept that training needs to happen but then let people book reservation times that interfere with the training so that the training can be done fully without being rushed and the reservations are maintained.
Nice lunch, we were celebrating my Mom’s birthday. We had a great time and the food was very good. Really appreciated they had a kids’ menu.
Once again I enjoyed a very pleasant pre-cinema meal at the Rivington with a friend. On this occasion our experience was enhanced by the input of our waiter Who was able to describe two of the dishes in great detail when required and clearly has a real interest in the food served himself.
We frequent the Rivington as a family for special occasions. I go with girlfriends for lunch. We pop in for a one course meal before the cinema or between movies. It’s a great place. Excellent service attentive & helpful very pleasant staff (May I mention Andreas especially). The food is excellent. The chef uses locally sourced & season ingredients & the menu changes whilst the good favourites remain. The wine is rather pricey & I’d recommend they served different Riojas
My starter of prawns was not great, but my steak for mains was delicious. My boyfriends potted shrimp starter was good but his main of lobster mac and cheese was disappointing. Maybe down to personal taste but menu seemed a bit bit or miss. Hasn’t put me off going back again though. Service was fab!
Nice venue and whilst the breakfast was really filling, it was on the expensive side
Good food, great staff, lovely selection of gins!
Many thanks to Oliver for his help in managing our experience.
An enjoyable dinner and it is a nice restaurant/bar in a convenient location. Only slightly poorly presented starters, squid and prawns kind of plopped on a small plate! and the burger was bland let it down. But otherwise everything else was very nice and tasty. The waiter was also very attentive and helpful.
Great overall experience- lobster mac and cheese disappointing (didn’t find any lobster) but monkfish masala lovely, superb staff and great attention to detail.
Great location in Greenwich to dine! Food was great! Service was awesome and an overall pleasant experience. Would highly recommend, even though a reservation in advance would be best on weekends.
Good place to eat for families with children, also.
Would highly recommend The Rivington. Lovely restaurant with friendly and knowledge staff - very family friendly. My only gripe would be that the prawn and monkfish dish had more prawns then monkfish - aside from that it was fab.
Basic food. Restaurant smelled of fish and was way too hot
So handy after the cinema, 3rd visit and am sure won’t be the last.
One of my favourite restaurants but sadly let down by the poor service from the waiting staff.
Greeted to be told our table wasn’t ready even though most tables were empty upstairs and others were clear.
Held at the bar until it was ready.
Sat down, provided menus and then waited, waited for a bit longer and then was finally asked what we would like to order.
At no point were we asked how the food was, played were cleared and also our wine and water glasses were cleared at the same time and the waiter disappeared. He eventually came back and said would you like dessert, we said yes I then watched him wait for another table to decide on theirs before he then took their menus and brought them over, was odd as I’m sure they have more than 2 menus.
Trying to pay was difficult as the two waiting staff were more concerned with talking to each other and setting tables than looking after the customers apart from the one big table.
If this was my first time here, I wouldn’t be back.
Lovely little place. Great brunch and great coffee too. Staff were attentive and helpful. Wonderful place to grab a bite if you're in the area.
