Always looking for a new restaurant to enjoy, we chose Riviera at the Fireside for a party of 10 to celebrate my wife's birthday. First, Scott was one of the most enjoyable, courteous, informational, patient and humorous waiters that we have ever had. That was the highlight of the night. If you are dining here, I would recommend requesting his service. The menu actually has a very good variety of selections not found in many restaurants. Unfortunately, the taste and the quality of the food dropped off significantly from there. The table appetizers were very weak with common crackers and average bread. The salads were actualy quite good, especially the Italian Tomato and Spinach Salad. The entrees were quite basic and seemed to have too much butter and/or grease and were definitely not the quality of $25-35 meals found at other restaurants. The over head music was appropriate and quite pleasing. The deocor was an interesting change. The retaurant was easy to find and parking was also very good.

Cons: Food Quality and Value

I went to the Fireside only to have the coq au vin -- since there seem to be fewer and fewer French restaurants in the LA area and few serve this dish. I have had this dish many times in France, as well as its being prepared by my cook.
It was very poor. Of course one can hardly ruin chicken; but the sauce was weak and what was used with the weak wine was tasteless.
My friend had the same thing, for the same reason, and agreed with me.

The preliminary plate of pate and assorted marinated veggies was outstanding.

Just don't order coq au vin.
