The restaurant closed down at the end of 2016 and it won't be reopening. (Attached photos show the locked doors and no lights). If you need a western food fix in Dalian try Cafe Copenhagen, Blue Frog or the Brooklyn Bar. They are all decent.

The food is good, but very expensive for what you get. I'm not sure how much is to cover the cost of imported food or something else. The staff is very friendly.

The dining experience was everything thing I had come to expect. It was probably the most perfect experience we have had in China, certainly in Dalian. Unfortunately, The Riviera is now closed.

After two weeks of traveling in China, to find a European style restaurant with terrific Italian food in Dalian was real treat. Jennifer and her staff were attentive with their service and offered some great recommendations. I had the lasagna which ranks up there with anything I have had in Boston's North End. And the Basil Lemonade was wonderfully refreshing.... More

This is the second come I come to Riviera. I had the lobster soup, the homemade pasta and the salmon stake and all were delicious. The ambience is very calming and the host is always here and always friendly. Definitely recommend it.

Authentic food in a nice and elegant restaurant in downtown Dalian. Recommended if you miss the original choice of dishes the Italian cuisine has to offer. Friendly owner, eager to have its guest experience real Italian food. I d suggest more training to the waiters ( food knowledge and all) to improve a bit on the service side.

I had a rather negative experience at this restaurant. We were the first persons to sit on that evening and the first to order. After 30min there was still no sign of our very quick to cook dishes (burger and fries, and grilled salmon with fries). Our waiter seemed upset with the (many) people in the open kitchen about our...

For me definitely the preferred Italian Spanish restaurant in Dalian. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere both for a romantic dinner or any business dinner with style. Dishes are prepared nicely in the open kitchen and stable in quality over time. Jennifer, Rivieras owner, takes good care of the guests and is mostly available for a good chat. By the... More

A super restaurant in the centre of Dalian. A very comfortable atmosphere and the owner is most welcoming and gives a fantastic overview of the choices on offer from the menu. Good selection of food from fish, steak, veal and pasta. Wine selection is also very good and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be paying the Riviera another visit if... More

Very nice food and wine, we had a very good time there. An excellent restaurant in Dalian. The restaurant is right opposite of Shangri-La hotel, very easy to find.

The Riviera is the perfect dinning experience for corporate and private diners, special occasions and gourmet foodies. The concept of offering Riviera Mediterranean cuisine under one kitchen is a unique and innovative combination that is satisfying to local and foreign gourmet foodies that frequent the Riviera nationally and internationally. While pasta, rice dishes, seafood and fish are favorite choices it is the quality and tenderness of the Austrailian Wagyu Beef and Tasmanian Lamb that the Riviera is so well known for. Vegans need not worry, the Riviera has a wide selection of vegetarian dishes throughout the menu. From the bar a choice of well-balanced wines are offered along with award winning cocktails and a unique selections of beers. For the dessert lovers who just can't decide from our amazing desserts, try our Mini Monte, a 5 spooned signature selection .... Simply Irresistible. Our highly trained and friendly dinning team have a wonderful command of the English language. Our Mission .... Commitment to Excellence
