We went early on a Sat evening and it got a nice table, was served by the Manager. Very good food, a bit pricey but who expects cheap french food in Westport?

Steaks Frites - was great - - try the Roquefort sauce - - and the pate and escargot were also very nice.

Dinner for 4 without tip was about $250 with a cocktail and 2 glasses of wine.

I'd go back!

Recently had a party for 50 in the upper room. Eric, Monika, Tatiana and staff did a fantastic job for us. Bar was set up in the smaller, wine room. Socializing and meal in the larger room with the river view. Food was excellent, as was the service. Guests were wowed. We've always had a good experience with lunch and dinner at Rive Bistro. This was our first group experience there and it was terrific.

I should really give this restaurant a 4.5 rating - the spectacular setting on the Saugatuck River is a draw year round and the French bistro food is excellent. Summer is particularly nice on the patio. Service is sometimes a bit slow when the place is crowded, but this is only a minor complaint. We love it!

I went to Rive expecting more, but my experience, although positive was not above average. The Food is good but not exceptional. The view is rather appealing ,but the restaurant itself is noisy and crowded. I would recommend the fish over the rest. Overall An apt gathering for Francophiles, but no 'wow factor'.

We have been here numerous times and the meals we have received have always been very good. We have never been disappointed. The wait staff is very attentive without being cloying. A true French bistro. Highly recommended.
