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.

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.

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 had looked at several other places to hold our wedding ceremony and reception at. While we had one particular place in mind, after meeting with Carol at the Riviera we knew we had found the right place. The Riviera was the only place to send us a thank you for visiting with them and how they would love to have us book our special day with them. Every time we went there we had an extremely positive experience. The owner, Karen could not have been more accommodating to us. The day of our wedding we moved the ceremony inside due to inclement weather and it was so lovely. The reception was more than I imagined it would be, the food was phenomenal! If anyone wanted more food, it was brought immediately. I have heard from several of my guests how impressed they were with the service. All of the staff were remarkable. When I returned the following day to pick up some of my things I told them I was going to miss this place. I am so thankful that a friend mentioned the Riviera Country Club to us!

We had our ceremony and reception here and it was absolutely beautiful! We had 220 guests and I received all compliments on how beautiful everything was!! They were very accommodating to our wishes. We were able to have our dogs there for the ceremony as flower girl and ring bearer!! Getting responses to our questions/requests were very timely! They love putting on weddings and it shows!! And somehow they even pulled off getting us beautiful weather that day so the ceremony was outside in the gazebo!! We had the wedding of our dreams and we are so thankful for all they did for us!! I would highly recommend having your wedding at the Riviera Country Club!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Riviera! Karen got back to me immediately when I emailed her with questions and was very accommodating for any special requests. The rooms are beautiful, the outdoor space was perfect for our ceremony and the prices are great for what was included, everyone said the food was excellent. They even recommended my DJ, who just could not have been nicer or easier to deal with. Many thanks to Karen, Dan, Lauren and the whole staff that helped make our day great!

Riviera Country Club was a wonderful vendor. We had been there for a wedding prior to ours so we knew how good the food was, but they still insisted that we come in for a tasting. The food was excellent! The service was awesome as well. I work in the industry and usually when someone says that it makes me cringe, but they had a ton of servers on the floor the entire time. We always had plenty of food and I even saw Karen out there busing the tables. Just a wonderful experience and one less thing I had to worry about on our special day. Plus the pricing, with what they included, was unbeatable anywhere else. Definitely recommend them!!
