Amazing food & professional event team
We booked RiRa for our rehearsal dinner (30 people) which was then followed by our wedding weekend kickoff party (100 people). IT WAS AMAZING. Seriously! When looking for a rehearsal dinner/welcome party location that would fit our guest count, RiRa was the first to be recommended and the first venue we looked into. We loved RiRa from the start but wanted to look around and really research all our options. I'm going to be honest... that took forever and honestly I wish I saved myself the time and just went with RiRa from go because truly no other venue compared.... especially after we experienced the actual party! THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE! Like so good that in the back of my mind I was worried it would upstage the wedding night menu! THAT GOOD! ALL of our guests talk about the food AND about how beautiful the upstairs of RiRa's is. It's a bit deceiving because it feels like an old Irish Pub downstairs but upstairs is so modern and light! Lots of windows... fun nautical decor. It's perfect! Then there was the staff... UNBELIEVABLE! Rebecca was so easy to work with on the menu and any details leading up to the event and then Rita took charge and did absolutely everything on the day of. I didn't think about anything! Truly was a guest at my own event. Anyway, if you are looking for a casual dinner for a larger group this is the place to go! HIGHLY recommend!Sent on 06/03/2020

We hosted our wedding reception at RiRa for 117 people. We had the most amazing time, Rebecca and Desiree worked so closely with us throughout the whole process and helped take a lot of responsibility off my hands. Our wedding was absolutely amazing. Our florist was a guest at our ceremony and had little time to prepare decorations, Desiree and her team helped with little direction and everything was absolutely perfect. RiRa feels like home now, we couldn't thank them enough for making our night so special!Sent on 10/05/2018

We are so glad we went with RiRa’s for our wedding venue. Not only is there a great view from the upstairs dining room but there were plenty of great places to take pictures in downtown Portland and by the water! Having a wedding at a restaurant might not seem like a typical wedding venue to some but we were able to have both our ceremony and reception there. The planning leading up to the event went well. The team is very responsive and answered all of my silly questions along the way. The day of the event was great. The servers and bartenders on staff were very attentive. Not to mention the food and drinks are always spot on whether your in a small group going out for dinner or attending an 80 person wedding like we had! We had a breakfast buffet with pastries, juice, coffee and open bar - our guests loved it! This place is a great choice!Sent on 10/20/2017
