A year before our wedding some close friends of ours had their rehearsal dinner here at the Grille at Riverview. We were blown away from the service, the food, and the venue itself, we knew we wanted to have our rehearsal dinner here too. We had about 30 people and we reserved the Promenade room. Lynn was fantastic to work with and everyone LOVED the food and the restaurant.

We hosted a small wedding reception for our daughter with 20 adults and 4 little children. It was a bit of a last minute event as we only had a month arrange a dinner. After making a few calls around New Smyrna Beach, we decided on The Grille at Riverview as they were the easiest to work with and cost was manageable. Since we had just 20 adults we could order off the menu which worked great. The event planner, Lynn, worked with us throughout the process and went along with all our ideas right to the end. It was a wonderful occasion with family and friends and, although the little ones could be challenging, the servers were helpful and polite. The food is always good at The Grille at Riverview so we knew what to expect and they did not disappoint. We had everything from appetizers to champagne to serving cake. Everything went without a hitch and I would recommend them highly for not only an event, but a lunch or dinner out. Thanks so much for helping with this important family event and the standard of quality that is always evident at The Grille at Riverview.
I had my daughter’s engagement party here in August. Everything was perfect! The appetizers were amazing. Especially the goat cheese bruschetta. Shrimp cocktail was cold and snappy and the crab cakes were amazing. The entrees were all served with a salad. Either a Caesar or house. Bread service. Amazing prime rib. Nice mini dessert platter. There were plenty of leftovers which were happily packed up by the wonderful wait staff. Speaking of service. Unbelievable. Never an empty glass, dirty plate or searching for a waiter. They were on point with being intrusive. Everyone left happy and the reviews from our guests were raves! The only problem? How are we going to top this party?
I cohosted a bridal shower here this past weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better venue, food and staff. Everything was truly amazing! We sat outside on the covered patio and the view and decor is just beautiful. All of the food was absolutely delicious...from appetizers to entrees to dessert. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure we had everything we needed. The girls that waited on us during the shower were so sweet and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant - whether for an event or just for lunch or dinner!

We had our son's rehearsal dinner at The Grille at Riverview this last Saturday night. It was one of the few restaurants in the area to accommodate a group of 45. The room was spacious, beautiful and had a scenic view of the Water. Desiree was willing to work with us to make it affordable and within our budget. The food was amazing and the service was great. Our guests were very impressed and bragged about how special and nice the evening was. I would highly recommend this as a venue for your next special event. We left feeling grateful, happy and that our money was well spent. Thank you so much!

I had my 50th birthday party last Saturday. It was my first time in this place. The view is spectacular from every single angle of the restaurant. My son went to the balcony area many times because there was live band music. We had dinner inside and the atmosphere was welcoming. Food was supreme, tasteful, colorful, and exquisite. I take my hat off to the Chef. My sister, the party organizer, choose this place and I can say, she has good taste. Service was very good. Staff was very attentive. It was a good combo: Food, Drinks, Service and View. I can definitely tell my friends about this place "The Grille at Riverview". Muy bueno!

My husband and I had a beautiful lunch for our wedding guests at the Grille at Riverview on September 17th...the weekend following Hurricane Irma. Needless to say, the week between the storm and our wedding was a bit stressful, not knowing what establishments were quickly back up and running. Fortunately, all was good to go by the 17th and Desiree gave us the reassurance that we needed as soon as she could. Desiree worked with us from the beginning and answered any and all questions we had about our event quickly and thoroughly. On the day of the event, Jason and the staff that took care of our group were simply amazing! All of my guests were complimentary of everything...food, service, atmosphere. We couldn't have been happier with everyone at the Grille at Riverview and we can't wait to come back!

Recently went for dinner at the Riverview. We were looking for a light menu and ordered from the sunset options. Our scallops were incredible! Our server was pleasant, funny, and always there to help us, without hovering. We sat out on the deck and the view of the Indian River was very nice. Background music was audible, but not overwhelming. A wonderful dining experience. Hard to answer some of the objective questions. The Grille offers Brunch on the weekend. Some of the entrees are expensive, but some are moderately priced. I consider many of the dinner entrees to qualify for "fine dining" and the lunch menu is more moderate. All the options are well prepared and presented.

Ok this is the best view in NSB. Food is always good service excellent. Sit out on the deck at night and relax with this beautiful view. Bands on most nights that are never too loud and fun to have a dance or two. Put this on your list for a great dinner and night out.

Thank you so much for your dedication and assistance in making the 100th celebration a success. My aunt was extremely happy and continues to talk about the event. I could not have planned it without your expertise. The servers Amber and Joy, I believe, were absolutely wonderful. Thank you for the compliment regarding my daughter’s singing. I will recommend you to anyone in need of a venue. Thanks again and God bless.

Food was good and the view of the river was nice. They give you cinnamon buns to start. Went to the Sunday Brunch and they had make your own Bloody Mary bar. Food was good. Service was good. Nice place to eat and socialize.
My fiancé and I came in for a meeting with my boss and his wife, we decided to sit at the bar. Right off the bat our bartender, Allie, let us know she would be taking great care of us, she was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu, it was very busy but we never felt unattended to. She even let my fiancé know about booking for our wedding. We will all definitely be back.

Jerry and I want to thank you so very much for giving us such a wonderful place to have our 645th Wedding Anniversary and 85th Birthday Party. The menu was great and everyone was so happy and loved the food. Our waiters and waitresses were terrific. Again, thank you for our very special occasion.

One of our favorite places for brunch. The staff is always friendly. My husband loves their biscuits and gravy, the bacon is delicious. My favorite is the Huevos Rancheros. There is such a variety on the Bloody Mary bar and you can have it without the vodka. Relaxing with great views.

The Sunset (early bird) Menu at The Grille at Riverview might be the best bargain in town. Without a doubt the best chef. Food is excellent and service is every bit as good. Can't beat the price or the view sitting on the outside deck.

Some of the best food I have had, since I've been in NSB. Me and a friend, were browsing town around 1pm to find a good mid-day meal. Lucky enough, we found the grille at river view. I can't say enough about the ahi tuna. I'm sure most of the menu is delicious. The server, Cory, made me feel welcome, and well taken care of. I am so full of amazing food. I had three appetizers, two entrees, and three desserts. Such a great experience matches my wonderful day. Thanks to everyone who works here, and special thanks to Cory.

The restaurant sits right on the river and as you enjoy your meal you have the pleasure of watching the boats go by. I enjoyed a champagne brunch on Father's Day. Excellent Eggs Benedict with a fresh salad. You are also treated to live entertainment while you dine.

We had brunch on Sunday before the family separated to go back to where they lived. The staff was amazing the entire time we were at the restaurant. The food, drinks, setting, and view were awesome. A great restaurant to conclude our weekend celebration of life. They even took pictures of the group afterwards outside by the water. Thank you for all you did for our family.

Lunch for a large group can be daunting, and our group is well-travelled and savvy. We were not disappointed. The Grille at Riverview's setting overlooking the Indian River was matched by the attentive, courteous staff. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. My compliments on the ahi tuna! I gladly recommend this restaurant in downtown New Smyrna Beach.
