Well you could probably guess I am a sucker for great service, so when the chef came out to help me with my order, this place immediately stood out. Riverview is located 1 stop outside of Manhattan across Gantry Park and has an amazing view of the city. It has a nice upscale setting with a down to earth staff. As we ordered our meals, the chef came out to assist make our selections. If you are saying the place must not have been packed, you are correct, which is a shame. I must say one thing before I say more, the menu I had was slightly different from the website. In addition, I am unsure as to how to classify this establishment, there is no one sort of food they specialize in. For an app, we got the New Zealand Mussels and for a meal I went with the Filet Minion medium rare(Yes, I made the switch!). The mussels were a wealthy portion and were seasoned to perfection. So on to the steak! The filet came with a peppercorn sauce, which I will be craving for a long time. I have never had something so tasteful. The steak was cooked just the way I like it, and the sauce made an excellent companion. There is no doubt in my mind; I will end up here again. Finally, during the meal, the chef once again came out to make sure the steak was cooked to my liking, now that is service at its finest.
