Californian-Mediterranean spot is known for simple cuisine in a romantic space overlooking a garden.- Google
"Prices are good for the quality; the lasagna and pork tenderloin were great."
"Next time I think I'd focus on appetizers rather than ordering an entree."

Wonderful seasonal cuisine in a nice romantic setting. Their vegetarian options tend to be quite spectacular.

One of the most overrated restaurants I've ever been to. Ordered a shrimp 'entree', it was more like appetizer size with 5 medium sized pieces of shrimps and a few asparagus. It tasted OK, nothing special and cost $27!! It was the first time I left a restaurant still hungry! It had a nice and cozy atmosphere. I was the first one arrived at the restaurant and got seated near the entrance/kitchen instead of near window with nice view even though the restaurant was completely empty and there were tables available for two near the window. On top of that, I asked the guy in suit (I think the owner) what the password was for the wi-fi which was listed in the list of available wi-fi networks on my phone he told me he didn't know the password?? Overall I don't see anything worth of it's current rating about this restaurant other than the atmosphere which comes after food quality and customer service for me. I think this is one of the restaurants that caught the 'high rating fever' and stopped caring about customers.

I have never had a bad meal at Rivoli. Come to think of it, I have never had a meal that wasn't great. The food is excellent and the dining room, though a bit small and sometimes cramped, has a wonderfully romantic feel. One of my favorite things about Rivoli is the wine list. Nearly every bottle is under $100 and most are under $50. The somelier doesn't try to overwhelm you with a long wine list, but rather has chosen ~4 pages of full bottles and 1 page of half bottles that all pair wonderfully with the food.

Pleasant but not remarkable. Interesting wine list, generous portions. Next time I think I'd focus on appetizers rather than ordering an entree.

Best restaurant in the bay area. Consistently superb food, drinks, and desserts. They do the most amazing things with chickpeas. I often order their vegetarian dishes because they do better vegetarian than anywhere else. Worth the long drive, if you're on the other side of the bay area. And affordable -- much pricier bay area restaurants never come close to Rivoli's quality of execution.
