About

Riva Grill is centrally located in South Lake Tahoe, on the waters of beautiful Ski Run Marina; offering sweeping vistas of the lake and surrounding mountains, providing an unparalleled setting for a spectacular event. South Lake Tahoe is easily accessible from Reno, Sacramento & San Francisco making it an ideal destination with lodging & activities abound.

Our exceptionally maintained facilities, outstanding menu, committed staff, and central location make Riva Grill one of the finest banquet and wedding facilities on Lake Tahoe, with beach settings available for outdoor ceremonies. Upstairs, private dining rooms can accommodate groups ranging from 2 to 220. A private balcony runs the length of both rooms and serves as a great space for cocktailing. Riva Grill showcases beautiful Lake Tahoe with floor to ceiling windows, while inside the restaurant you will find a unique blend of upbeat & contemporary design with the nostalgic ambiance of Tahoe’s classic wooden boat era. Stunning exposed beam ceilings, artistic lights, rich mahogany chairs & skylights bring all the beauty of Tahoe indoors for you & your guests to enjoy. Groups larger than 220 people may consider reserving the entire restaurant (some restrictions apply). A restaurant closure includes the use of one of our most coveted amenities, our spacious deck (complete with wind barriers, market umbrellas, and heat lamps).

Although Riva Grill is competitively priced, we surpass the competition in our commitment to providing uncompromising service and exceptional food. We will work with you to ensure your special day is all you've ever wished for. A qualified banquet professional will supervise your event from start to finish.

    The perfect place for rehearsal dinner in South Lake Tahoe

    We held our rehearsal dinner at Riva Grill and couldn't be happier with the process or the end result. Kimberly who we were working with there is fantastic. Extremely personable and professional, she helped put us at ease every step of the way and quickly took care of any questions or concerns we had, and she personally helped my parents feel a lot less stressed about the whole Tahoe destination wedding thing ;) The space at Riva Grill for private events is gorgeous. The room is big and exudes relaxed mountain elegance. Everyone was blown away by the views and the sunset was magical. The Wet Woody bar was a big hit (those Wet Woodys are surprisingly delicious, I still think about them sometimes!). The food was excellent and you get a lot of it. Several people went back for dinner there later in the weekend because they liked the food at the rehearsal dinner so much (and our family is picky about food). We looked at rehearsal dinner locations in SLT for a long time and feel so happy with our choice and the value we got from Riva Grill.

    Riva Grill on the Lake's reply:

    Paige! Thank you for such kind words. We were thrilled to host your group and glad to hear it was a success. We wish you all the best and hope to see you for some anniversary celebrations!
