Anna was our server last night - outdoor seating on the sidewalk. She was great- perfect timing and knew how to not interrupt a conversation. I appreciate that. Knew the dishes and specials like the back of her hand. Great Manhattans- with soaked cherries, thank...More

The food is great, the service is wonderful and the ambiance is delightful. Reservations are a must as they are always very busy. I highly recommend it for special occasions as the event will be so memorable.

I ate there once since they opened. It was good but expensive and almost too eccentric. Portions small and food very rich.

Years ago Mario's was high class 4 star. Intimate and the best quality cuisine in Riverside... but that was 1980 and 1990. Was taken here for a couples dinner and was not happy. Too loud, more family than couples place. Quality of service and flavor...More
