I'm relatively new here - my first post - although I do follow restaurant recommendations for SF-East Bay from Chowhounders.
Anyways recently to celebrate my food-loving kid's 10th birthday, I took him to Rivoli's on Solano Ave. His first time and second time for me with a gap of over 10 years.
My kid loved the food and possibly due to the momentous occasion (his 10th!) thinks its the greatest restaurant ever. I thought it was good too, though I did think the wine list and savory courses were better than the dessert selection. Most of all, the service was impeccable and the food was very good value.
I wanted to know what other Chowhounders think of Rivoli - have you'll mostly had very good experiences there? I am asking because I 'm thinking of taking a bigger group there and also want to compare experiences.
Thanks for your responses!
P.S. I also want to share the glowing post my kid wrote about Rivoli on his kids food blog (project for school). Please check it out if you like at http://www.onthehop.net/2012/10/my-10...
