our wedding day was magical and not very stressed from having our wedding here. I brought in table runners to add some color to the all white tables. Everything is included though like the linen, chair covers and chair bows. Other places we looked at added extra for it. Also, this place has the tax and gratuity INCLUDED into the price which makes it very affordable. The food was amazing! People would not stop commenting on all the food and how delicious it all was.

Riviera was a delightful venue!! They were there for us from the beginning to the end of the entire process. The tasting was made available to us PRIOR to booking them. That's only fair in my book. When we sat down to talk about pricing, we were blown away at the prices and availability of options. They were so flexible on everything from bringing in beer of your own If you want which we appreciated. The evening snack option was available as well to bring in pizza for all the late nighters. They are down to earth people, not snooty, which is very important when you want to get things done by asking a REAL person that's willing to go the extra mile to accommodate your wish. Timely responses to emails, phone calls and at the actual wedding a few last minute requests fulfilled as well. Our organizer was there for a while the night of to make sure everything went off as planned, and let me know she was leaving halfway through..... I was worried and asked well what do we do if we need something?? She responded with "see the owner" Wow, he was there all night and at our service!! Wonderful person by the way and you'd never know he was the owner with how much he was contributing to the team of waitstaff. Perfect place, price, food, service.... Just awesome. We will be sending a warm thank you card to them for their efforts. Above the call of duty by far!!!

Our wedding was 4/24/15. We are so happy that we chose the Riviera. Karen and Dan are the owners and they were amazing. Our day couldn't have been any better. Food was great, servers were caring, the staff was flexible to accommodate to our needs, and our guests had a blast. The cost was very low for such great quality, and saying we are pleased is simply an understatement.

I had found the Riviera in search for a ceremony/reception location for my daughter. On our first visit to the Riviera we were actually so pleased with the reception room and the outdoor ceremony location that we had skipped our visit to another venue that we originally planned to visit the same day. We were looking forward to the next step which was the tasting. However unfortunately with my daughter and son in laws busy schedules we were unable to go on the days scheduled. We almost passed the Rivera up because of this. I then emailed with Karen the issue we were having and she accommodated us. We loved the food at the tasting and this time my daughters fiance was with us and he loved the location also.
This is not my first time needing a ceremony/reception location. Therefore I feel the need to point out some extras that come with the reception room and you may use at no extra cost.
White Satin Chair Covers with Bows
TALL Glass Centerpiece Vases with White Silk Roses
Lighting behind the head table with color choice options
Please keep in mind these are white and some may not prefer the all white but what we did was added table runners and a few other decor of my daughters wedding colors that popped out more because of the white. I also feel I should point out that I own a wedding supplies business and with that being said I have access to all the decor we would have needed and we did not need to replace any of the supplied from the Riviera nor did we have to use a lot extra.
The Gazebo for the ceremony is beautiful and large. I have to mention that when you first see the outdoor location if you have a huge guest list as we did this may make you nervous if you don't see the actual seating setup. However believe Karen when she assures you they can accommodate the seating. As the Riviera did for us.
Karen is very helpful and she is a wonderful person. Very attentive staff also.

We could not say enough about the Riviera Country Club!! Karen, the owner/manager, was like having our own personal wedding consultant/planner without a fee. She is amazing!

I emailed her a lot (we joke that we will now miss each other as pen pals), and she always responded quickly. While she is the epitome of professionalism, her warmth and wonderful personality just make you feel like you are dealing with a friend and someone who genuinely cares about you and your happiness.

Everything was outstanding. We also had a ceremony there (in the reception hall) and it was also amazing. Nice touches of candles and an arch, etc.

The wait staff and bar staff was great. The appetizers were very good and plentiful.

The food was outstanding. Everyone raved about it - and I mean the most discerning individuals! :-) We had fried chicken (just like Mom's, bar none), roast sirloin and mostaccoli served family style. No one went hungry - just the opposite.

Everything was just perfect, just like Karen assured me it would be! Any question I had, any care, concern, was immediately attended to. This I what brides need!!

My new husband calls the Riviera the "best kept secret in the suburbs" I have to agree!

If you are considering the Riviera, stop looking and book it. You will NOT be disappointed!

I have never been compelled to write a review for anything. This is a first. The venue, service and food were all fantastic. Karen worked with us to insure a great event and they didn't disappoint. I have played 100's of wedding venues in a band and this one is by far the best I have seen. Everyone at the event commented on either how beautiful the venue was or how good the food was, but most commented on both. My new wife and I are overjoyed with how it turned out. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for ANY occassion.

After visiting four venues, my (now) husband and I had a gut feeling that Riviera was the place to hold our reception. After our tasting appointment, we knew they would do a wonderful job; when 10-18-2014 came along, our wedding reception was more than we could have asked for. Karen, Dan, along with their staff were absolute gems. We had numerous guests compliment the venue, the food and beverage provided, overall attentiveness of the wait staff, and beautiful ambience created at Riviera. Everything moved smoothly and was perfect. Karen and her staff were so great to work with and were accomodating to our needs. Karen was incredibly helpful when last minute questions arose or things might needed to be altered before the big day. She offered suggestions and provided her insight from her past experiences to ensure our day was perfect! Everyone was incredibly attentive and responsive leading up to our day and the day/night off! We could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding reception, because Riviera is the best! Thank you, Karen, Dan, and the staff at Riviera!

We did quite a bit of research, and visited four other venues before choosing Riviera Country Club for the Wedding Reception. While other venues made it difficult to discern provided services and costs, Riviera clearly stated these items right from the start. Every detail that was a concern- number of people at the table, specific imported beer, etc. was met with the same positive response - the Riviera staff would work with us to make the Wedding Reception exactly what we wanted. They allowed us to decorate the tables for the Disney-themed wedding in advance, and let us come in on Sunday morning to pick up the many heirloom collectibles that were part of these decorations. Any time we asked Karen a question of what her experience was, or what she would recommend she promptly, shared her expertise. Riviera owner Dan was at the reception on Saturday night, and made sure the food was prepared and served perfectly, and that the bar was running smoothly. Many guests complimented the parents of the bride and groom on the wonderful venue, delicious food, and comfortable ambiance. With the supreme efforts of Karen and Dan the Wedding Reception was all we had hoped for and more. We are happy to share this review so that other couples can have the same great experience.
