BEST VALUE IN NYC. So beautiful and great service and food
I had my wedding here a month ago and I would give Riviera 10 stars if I could. It was such a joy and ease to work with Adam, Tommy, and their staff. A true diamond in the rough of Coney Island and the best value out there for Brooklyn weddings! Extremely recommend this place.
First, the space has been recently remodeled and it is truly gorgeous and modern. You don't have to worry about bringing in much of your own decorations - our florals, ceremony, table settings, and photos looked stunning against the Riviera's backdrop.
The service of the Riviera staff was also impeccable. Up to the wedding, they were responsive and helpful and kind. During our wedding, the staff took extreme care of us and our guests, and over-checked on us every step of the way. I felt very taken care of. At the end of the night, waiters had trays of water waiting for everyone as they headed home from the party. They even put champagne in the bathroom! Our guests were dazzled.
The food is also exceptional and aplenty. The cocktail hour had so many food stations our guests thought we wouldn't be serving dinner! Then dinner was another 3 courses of amazing food. Everyone commented on how delicious it was. The bar is top shelf and wine bottles sat on each table.
Again - the value here is out of this world! Highly recommend and thank you so much for a day to remember.Sent on 04/02/2020

I recently had my wedding at the Riviera and it was just wonderful! To begin with, Tommy was a joy to work with – super easy going, friendly, relatable, available at any time and knowledgeable. He instantly made my husband and I feel comfortable the first time we met him. One of the main reasons we picked the Riviera for our wedding was because of Tommy and how comfortable he made us feel during that first meeting. The renovations (which we couldn’t see at first) turned out just amazing – truly breathtaking.Sent on 01/03/2020
The process of creating our menu was seamless, as well, as Tommy was more than willing to give recommendations and even created a unique pasta for us and our guests (which was delicious, by the way!). He was also more than willing to accommodate our request for two signature cocktails – which our guests raved about (especially the peppermint espresso martini)!
The food was wonderful, really delicious and our guests have told us it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to! Adep was a true pleasure to work with the day of the event, as well. I wore a large ball gown and Adep was always on hand to help me get through doorways, get up and down stairs and just move around in general. He and his team checked in with my husband and I numerous times throughout the night and we were very pleased with him!
My only suggestion would just be to circulate the passed canapés a bit more during the cocktail hour. Some of our guests that were in one cocktail hour room missed out on some items. Other than that, the wedding was absolutely perfect and Tommy and Adep did a terrific job. I would highly recommend any prospective brides and grooms work with the Riviera, Tommy and Adep. They are amazing (and the place is just gorgeous!).
Riviera Caterers's reply:Thank you for the wonderful review :). I'm happy you loved it and it was a complete pleasure for us to host your wedding.

The Best Ever
We just had our wedding at the Riviera on 10/19 and we were absolutely blown away by how amazing it was! After meeting Tommy we knew were in good hands but we had no idea just how great it would turn out to be! I don't know where to begin so we'll start with the space itself - the new renovations are stunning and our ceremony was held in the garden which was also beautiful. The food - out of this world! Cocktail hour had so many amazing choices (my favorite was the lil big mac) and then the dinner - guests are still texting us to tell us that "the lamb was amazing". My mom and maid of honor have celiac disease, and the Riv was extremely accommodating with their allergy. For dessert the guests enjoyed viennese hour where they had everything from a chocolate fountain to a fresh donut station! And finally - the people! You will not meet anyone else like Tommy. Before we chose the Riviera, I went to see about 15 other venues and there is truly no one better than Tommy. He is a true professional who went above and beyond. Leading up to the wedding I would reach out to him at random times with the most random questions and he always responded so quickly and kept me reassured that everything would be perfect. On the wedding day we were introduced to RD who was dedicated to making sure we were taken care of, and not just us but also our parents, immediate family, and wedding party, we were all treated like VIPs. RD was an angel! The entire staff was so great and our guests can't stop raving about what an amazing job they did. It was truly the best!Sent on 10/31/2019
