Riverview Restaurant entertains guests' taste buds and eyes with a menu of dishes made with fine, Northwest ingredients and a rustic, elegant dining room that looks out onto the Sandy River. Start a meal with sweet gourmet red crab puffs ($8) or a cup of clam chowder ($4) brimming with bacon and local vegetables. Main courses exit the kitchen looking like a 12-ounce New York strip paired with asparagus, mushrooms, garlic mashed, and truffle oil ($32) and a seafood tower of skewered and fried coconut and panko-dusted prawns ($21). All entrees highlight a suggested pairing from the captain's wine list, and non-captain-suggested signature drinks and bananas foster for two flamed tableside ($15) pair well with nightly, complimentary live music.
Riverview Restaurant was designed to seamlessly blend with its surroundings, like a frog wearing army-issue camouflage. The building is held up by wood milled from the trees that once stood on the site, and manicured grounds can be viewed from the gazebo. The restaurant’s walls, scattered with original artwork, gives eyes reason to scan the interior.
Constructed with wood milled from trees that once stood on the same soil, Riverview Restaurant’s sunlit space boasts high ceilings, exposed wood beams, and a stone-front fireplace, all which helped nab it a spot on OpenTable’s list of top 100 romantic restaurants in the country. Walls hung with original artwork surround linen-topped tables where diners savor plated braised brisket, gorgonzola butternut ravioli, and other fusion flavors. An extensive wine list serves wine by the glass, bottle, or surreptitiously emptied flower vase, and bartenders swirl signature drinks such as pear martinis and pomegranate mojitos. Massive, floor-to-ceiling windows offer views onto manicured grounds, complete with a gazebo where patrons can reenact the scene in The Sound of Music where Rolf and Liesl cleverly disguise themselves as trees.
