We had our Bishop 35th pastoral anniversary their / birthday gathering and we had a great time we had different churches there we just had a great time the Riviera Country Club is a beautiful place if you want to have a wedding birthday party any type of gathering it is a beautiful place to go they really took care of us and we just enjoyed each other praising the Lord giving him his glory and giving him his due
Everything went great our wedding day! Karen walked us through everything and this venue is the most reasonably priced and a great place to have your wedding.
We had our wedding here in early November. They were extremely accommodating with our wants and needs. Their packages included many things other places in the area "nickel and dime" you for which can save you hundreds of dollars and even more value in time saved. The location is perfect. The staff was very professional and all of our guests had nothing but good things to say during and after the wedding was said and done. They accommodate indoor and outdoor weddings and work closely with your DJ, photographer, etc on timing. They were helpful in organizing the actual ceremony we held there as well. I couldn't be happier with the venue. I highly recommend you give them a look when planning your wedding! More...
We had the best wedding we could have imagined at the Riviera! Dan and Karen, the owners, were so wonderful throughout the whole process and were so helpful with last minute arrangements and suggestions as we went along the way. We had our ceremony outside in the gazebo on a beautiful sunny fall day. The Riviera has a great package which includes appetizers, champaign toast, premium bar, delicious dinner options (they also do a tasting for you), cake cutting, seat covers, uplighting, taxes, and service charge all in one reasonable price. Other places we saw have an add on charge for most of those. We had 130 adults in the the Waterford room and it was perfect for the atmosphere we were looking for. When my fiancé first saw the Riviera, she fell in love with it and I knew right then we had to have it there. We are so glad we were able to have the most important day of our lives there and how great everything turned out. I would definitely recommend them! More...
We had our wedding at Riviera on November 2nd. Karen was absolutely incredible throughout the entire planning process. I had so many questions and she always responded right away. I was worried about our ceremony seating (we had to have it inside) and she worked with me to make everything exactly what we wanted. It was absolutely beautiful, the food was great (the Hors D’Oeuvres during cocktail hour were awesome!!), and I highly recommend the taco bar and chocolate fountain. Overall I could not have picked a better place to have our wedding. You cannot beat the service or value. Thank you so much to Karen and Dan for making our special day so perfect! More...
It was a cocktail party celebrating our son's engagement.
We had our 50th Anniversary party at the Riviera recently. Our guests raved about the food, the service, and the ambiance.
The room is beautiful and there is a gazebo outside for photos.
We had both of our daughters weddings there over 20 years ago and it was wonderful then too. I'm glad we chose it again. More...
Karen was awesome with planning for our event
Excellent wedding venue.. Awesome owners and very flexible. So happy we made the right decision..
Actually, I have never gone to the health club there. But we frequently do go to the Gatto's Restaurant within the same location.
Always clean with a friendly staff.
I have been a member for eight years thus far. Before that I was at Lifetime and before that I was at LA Fitness. I like Riviera the best of all. In the entire eight years my monthly fee has not gone up. We pay $125 for the wife and myself plus $100 a year for a locker so I can keep stuff there and never need to bring sneakers or swim suit or deodorant, etc... it's all there. I also like that you get towels when you arrive. I greatly enjoy the hot tub - adults only- and that they keep kids out of the locker room/ how cool is that? It's private, clean, and quiet every time! There are several work out areas with tons of equipment and free weights. I have never once had to wait- or limit my time in anything. There's basketball, tennis, in and outdoor pools, and sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi. I am there sometimes for hours at a time. There are plenty of free classes - yoga and jazzercise things which my wife goes to regularly. I have never once had a problem with anyone unfriendly. Yes - the staff rotated a lot but I think it's bc kids go to college, etc and these are often temporary positions - i can't see that as a negative- what's the big deal?The clients are generally empty nesters like us - but there are a lot of families too. There are personal trainers you can hire at fair prices- the wife and I have totally achieved our fitness goals here and we did not anywhere else. Also, someone said something bad about the walking/ jogging track they have - it's probably the best one I ever ran on / it's made of a soft cushiony material so it's easier on the feet - ten times around us a mile - it's excellent.The place is always clean.They always add new things.They keep it up well - even though it appears 70s - Esque in some areas.I would say go get a tour - ok it's not modern but at least you don't have thousands of people there all the time! And the pools are perfectly refreshing and perfectly clean at all times.I am a long time member and I also go the Charter Fitness bc I also train there - the Riviera is definitely my preferred gym - it's big, huge, private, clean, has a spin room, free weight area, machines I use, and an awesome jogging path. The poor reviews are unfair to them- they try very hard to keep members going. They dont go over the top to kiss your butt but they are in deed friendly enough. More...
We were just married on July 19, 2019 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Tinley Park and followed our ceremony with the most amazing Wedding Reception at the Riviera Country Club in Orland Park.
We knew from the moment we met the owners and walked into the Country Club a year prior that this was the perfect place and venue for our reception! We had viewed over 6 venues in one day and came across the Riviera Country Club and stopped in that day as one of our last visits. The moment we walked in and met the owners; Karen and Dan, we felt comfortable and right at home. Out of every place we visited not one would give us a tasting without making a deposit. Karen and Dan welcomed us with open arms and asked if we would like to come back later that day for a tasting. Of course, we were super excited and did. Wow!!! We were so impressed, not only did we have a tasting but a private tasting for two of a full course meal in the very room we were looking at booking. The food was so amazing and ambiance of the room that we were sold immediately. We made our deposit and booked the date and LakeView Room!
Throughout the entire year process we had amazing communication with Karen and Dan as we made our final deposits, finalized our menu, colors, decor, etc. We can honestly say there was no stress because everything was taken care on their end perfectly! Even on the wedding day they worked so wonderfully with our bridal party, guests, our DJ, and photographers. We were able to enjoy our reception and guests without any concerns.
The week prior to the wedding we were in contact with our seating, last min requests, and dropped off things we needed to finish decorating our room. Karen was so flexible and let us come a day early to set up our gift table, favors, and table seating. The room was completely decorated to with centerpieces we fell in with and our colors with purple and black runners down the tables and our up lighting for our head table was set to go!
On the day of our wedding our DJ and Photographer were able to set up with ease and worked amazing with Karen and Dan as a team! We had approx 150 guests attend our reception. Our guests had amazing hor 'd'oeuvres and open bar prior to our dinner our. Family style gourmet dinner with cream of chicken an d rice soup, delicious salad with a raspberry vinaigrette, mostaccioli with beef sauce, sausage and peppers, fresh green beans, fresh mashed potatoes, fried chicken, beef sirloin, coffee, beverages, and ice cream served with our wedding cake. We also had an open bar package for hors d'oeuvre hour, after dinner, and a chocolate fountain that all of our guests enjoyed to the max! Our guests, bridal party, family were at awe by the ambiance and beauty of the room, the service, and quality of food. We even were able to get beautiful pictures taken outside by the little lake and gazebo out back; which was also a beautiful view from inside our room! No words can describe how intimate and beautiful the day was!
There are no words to describe how stunning our reception was and how smooth, calm, and amazing our planning for the big day and the actual day was because of Karen and Dan! Not only did they make our day complete but our Reception was everything we every dreamed of and we highly recommend their venue and services to anyone planning a very special occasion such as a wedding, reception, retirement party, anniversary party, birthday, etc. We are so blessed and thankful we chose the Riviera Country Club for our wedding reception venue and will treasure the memories for years to come! We will definitely use their services for any special event we may have in the future as well.
The Riviera Country Club and the owners; Karen and Dan , hold a special place in our hearts and we will be forever grateful that they made our Reception a dream come true.

Nice place for wedding reception
Dr. John Deitche
The pools are great. Having a spa including steam, sauna and whirlpool available is top-notch. Mostly long-term members are friendly. Clean facility and friendly staff. A member since 1986. More...
Very luxurious physicality for weddings or special occasions.
I could not say enough good things about our wedding at the Riviera Country Club! Karen was wonderful to work with and made sure that our wedding was perfect.
She was very responsive to all of my calls and emails, professional, flexible, and FRIENDLY!
I loved how everything was included in the pricing! Cocktail hour (appetizers and drinks), food, open bar, cake cutting, white satin chair covers and bows, white table linens, beautiful white rose centerpieces, table runner (you can pick your color), backlights (pick your color), unlimited wine during dinner, private outside gazebo, private bridal room, gratuity and tip were included!
The food was delicious! Our guests raved about everything but especially the cream of chicken soup, fried chicken, and REAL mashed potatoes! The Riviera has an extensive bar list- they even do frozen drinks! The bartenders made sure that everyone was satisfied and the parent tables/head tables received cocktailing during the dinner!
We got great deals when we booked including an outdoor ceremony at the private gazebo and 6 months use of the Country Club!
I could go on and on about our wedding at the Riviera! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have a seamless, perfect wedding! More...

When you gotta get in shape lol
We were very happy to have chosen Riviera as our wedding venue.
Karen worked closely with us during the planning process. She was very easy to talk to and very punctual . I trusted her with every step of the way. She wasn't just the planner she was just like a best friend and a family member. On the day of the wedding, she was very professional and made sure that everything was perfect and on time. Food was delicious, service beyond awesome. Cake served with ice cream, chocolate fountain was the BOMB. Karen and Gabe made sure that every request we had will be done.
They are not like any other place I spoke to before I choose our venue.
They are not about Nickeling-and-diming, they are about the best service, they about giving you the best day of your life and making your requests and dreams to come true. Balloons no problem, flower petals no problem, your touch-ups no problem, whatever you ask for is no problem.
Best venue ever and we have been to 2 weddings this year, one I mansion one in Hotell. Still Riviera WON!!!! love you guys !!!!!!! More...
From the moment we met Karen and Dan, I felt right at home. They were super friendly, easy to talk to and made sure we were happy.
They continued to say “this is your day” and made every accommodation possible. We were drawn to The Riviera because of this. The pricing was affordable, the food was great and they have a beautiful gazebo with a view for an outdoor ceremony. Karen answered emails promptly and we never felt rushed in any decision we made. Come wedding day, we experienced challenges, however Karen and Dan expertly guided us and ensured everything stayed on schedule and things ran smoothly. It was perfect and we are so happy with our choice. It was filled with love, and laughter. Our family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding. Thank you Karen and Dan for all your help in making our day special and unique to us.

It was absolutely amazing, They captured everything to make my dream wedding come true.
Where to begin. I am a terrible bride and a huge procrastinator. We had contacted Karen a year before our wedding and were interested but I decided to postpone to wedding because I had literally nothing done. Fast forward to about 5 months before my wedding and I still had nothing done. I contacted Karen and surprisingly my date was available! Everything from there on out was wonderful and smooth sailing. Karen is the best. She doesn’t nickel and dime and the service and professionalism you get is over and above what I expected. It was a joy everytime we talked, and she wasn’t scared to stay in contact with you!! The food was great, we did family style and the southern fried chicken was the biggest hit of the night! Karen also recommended our DJ, Steve, with Em Cee Squared and he was also amazing! No cheesy dj here. I am not a picky person in general but gave him the few songs I requested and the genres we liked and it was amazing!!! Also, it was literally less than a month from our wedding and Steve moved his personal schedule around just to accommodate us. I couldn’t be happier!! I literally have zero complaints. The only thing would be that it was a little warm inside, however we do live in Chicago and we are in that weird period from cold to hot and temperatures everywhere, even in stores tend to be whacky because of the weather. The air was on and it wasn’t the venues fault at all! It was literally no big deal. We all had an amazing time and I wish we could do it all over again!!! The outside is beautiful for pictures, and the hall is spacious. It is decorated and the uplighting was amazing. We got to pick our table runner colors as well. Everything is included. Literally everything. The service from our servers and bartender was also exceptional. Everyone was polite, smiling and doing an awesome job. I really couldn’t have asked for a better day. How accommodating everyone was, especially because I waited til last minute on so many things. Karen set up all my DIY and candles for me and it was perfect! She even made sure I got asparagus for dinner! ;) I would absolutely recommend Karen and the Riviera for all wedding needs and even just for an awesome party. I still talk to Karen even after the wedding. My day was perfect. I was able to remember so much of it and really enjoy it. Without Karen and the Riv it wouldn’t have been the same at all. Thank you guys so much! More...
We were just married at the Riviera this past Friday, May 24, 2019. We had our ceremony in one of the outdoor gazebos, and our reception right after.
The ceremony was everything we hoped it would be and the reception room was beautiful.
The first time we met with Karen, she was very knowledgeable and kind, answered all of our questions, and was always very responsive in getting back to us. We decided to book the venue pretty much immediately after meeting with her. The food tasting was adorable. They set up a table for 2 in the middle of the dance floor in the room where you will have your reception and let you taste everything.
The day of the wedding, the room looked gorgeous. We received so many compliments on the food, especially the fried chicken. Karen was there every step of the way to make sure everything was perfect: the rehearsal, the uplighting, the seating, the DJ area, the cake table, the memorial we had for our parents, everything!! She was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Our bartender was wonderful as well. It truly was the perfect day and we would recommend Riviera to anyone. Karen - you're an angel and we enjoyed working with you! Thanks for making one of the best days of our life so amazing!! More...
Nice outdoor pool where you can have drinks, and a relaxing atmosphere to hang out in the summer. Large gym with indoor pool, basketball and tennis courts. Friendly staff.
We had a great wedding and reception even with the snow on our April wedding. Riviera was very accommodating and allowed us to have ceremony in a separate room! Great place to have a wedding!
Had my wedding here last week and it was amazing! Food was wonderful, they were super accommodating and Karen was amazing at always getting back to me asap with any questions I had. I checked out a few places before looking here, and once I looked here I knew i was going to have my wedding here. Their pricing is super affordable for everything that is included. We had our ceremony outside, it was so beautiful just the way it is I didnt even have to worry about decorating outside. Definately have been and will continue to recommend them to people looking!! More...

I can't stress enough on how amazing our shower was! From beginning to the end. The Venue is Gorgeous and the food was amazing.
You both went above and beyond our every need. Would recommend this Venue to anyone looking for a great place to host your party.
Thank you again!
The owners and their employees are wonderful they answer all your questions , give incentives, they gave me a Military discount off on the venue. They have a beautiful venue and they are a wonderful team amazing people. They went all out with the tasting! More...
Great place to do my swimming 500yards every other morning!
Really nice place to workout, swim or play tennis. The equipment is older but still in good shape for the most part and there is plenty of it. Pretty sure all the classes are free and they have them in the bike room - very nice bikes - and in the aerobics studio. The swimming pools are both well-maintained and kept at good temperatures and there are more than enough seats by the outside pool and some good spots to get out of the sun. Tennis courts inside and out. Again. Well maintained. Best of all, there are lots of friendly people, including the owners of this nice family-owned club. Except George. He can be cranky. But it's not his fault. He is old. More...
They were very polite, very flexible, and very supportive of any accommodations we needed! Highly recommended.
Very nice banquet room and good food.
Went there for a reception and was pleasantly surprised
Very elegant venue
Karen is amazing! She was available every step of the way and made sure all of our needs were met. All of our guests had a great time!
The Riviera was more than I could have asked for, we worked with Karen and she was so amazing and accommodating from start to finish. She is quick to answer any questions and thoroughly explained everything we needed to know. Her and her staff were also great the day of, helping everything run smoothly. They are affordable, and include so much that for us it was a no brainer. I would absolutely recommend them if you’re looking for a beautiful venue, great food, and having your wedding day glide with ease. I’d also love to give a shout out to their amazing bartender who had everyone’s drinks memorized and was on top of her game! More...
Had our 50th wedding anniversary there 10/19/18 food was excellent ( fried chicken was the bomb) Dan and Karen were the best hosts and we were treated like royalty. My guests may use this place for thier events they said. I know I’ll return for sure. Looking forward to thier Christmas party. More...
I used the Riviera for our wedding venue and I couldn't have been happier. Not only did we have everything we needed but because the ceremony space was just outside of the reception, it made it possible to have my elderly grandparents who can't handle standing or walking for very long to be present for both events. Karen and her entire staff were so helpful and always happy to help accommodate what we wanted. The food was delicious, the venue was beautiful, and we got nothing but compliments on how everything was. I highly recommend the Riviera, especially if you don't have a huge budget, as everyone there is so friendly and helpful, the space is genuinely beautiful and spacious, and the food is AMAZING. More...
Me and my husband had our wedding here and the food and staff were so awesome. If you are ever looking for a venue stop in and ask for Karen. I can assure you won't be sorry.
Been working out here for years; fantastic staff, machines, and utilities! I advise coming here to check it out yourself.
We had our wedding at the Riviera on 9/7/18. It was absolutely amazing!! The food was absolutely perfect!! Karen responded to everything immediately whenever we had any questions. They made sure the wedding party and all guests were well taken care of the entire night!! The servers were extremely polite and took care of all our special requests! Lennie who took care of the head table and the parents tables was beyond extremely professional and attentive to all of our needs. The outdoor ceremony location is beautiful and pleantly of seating for everyone! More...
Ask for Karen and I can assure you, you won't be sorry. My entire wedding was so beautiful.
We had our wedding at the Riviera Sept 2nd and it was truly amazing! The hall is beautiful, the outside is breathtaking!
I can go on and on but the food........I have never had better chicken anywhere in my life all the food was amazing. The staff is outstanding, they go out of their way to make you feel totally comfortable and make everything very easy for you. The bartender was fabulous, it was a very beautiful day and i'm glad we chose Riviera CC for our special day! You will not be disappointed having an event here! 100 stars from me!!! Loved them!

We had our wedding reception there 3 weeks ago. Karen was amazing the whole time very helpful. The food was great and the staff worked very hard. I looked around at other halls but at the Riviera Banquet Hall their wedding packages the prices were amazing for what you get included More...
Hands down the best wedding venue I could have ever imagined!!! The staff, food, drinks, inclusions, location, and atmosphere could not have been more perfect. Karen and Dan were so accommodating and went out of their way to make my dream wedding come to life. I cannot say enough good things about them. The Riviera worked seamlessly with our other vendors to make the night go off without a hitch! The value is second to none. I would recommend anyone and everyone to have their wedding at the Riviera! We could not have picked a better place. More...
Amazing venue! Karen was so helpful from the meal planning to organizing the wedding party to walk down the aisle. I cannot say enough about the delicious food & beautiful room. I am still getting positive feedback from my guests regarding the reception. Karen was so accomodating for the rehersal dinner & setting up the tables. Book this venue you will not be disappointed!!

Karen and all the staff at the Riviera was amazing from day 1 to work with. They are helpful accommodating very nice and fun! Our wedding and ceremony was absolutely everything we hoped for.

My daughter had her wedding and I can not say enough great things about this venue and Karen and staff—-it was all perfect and they are so accommodating and willing to do what ever it takes to make it a special day for all to enjoy! ! Not to mention the food was excellent—extra bonus plus very reasonable pricing—a FIVE STAR from the Kazmer -Wigboldy Mom� More...
Riviera Country Club was the perfect venue for our wedding for many reasons. Karen and Gabe were wonderful to work with and helped keep everything running smoothly. We forgot the wedding topper and Karen improvised very well with a perfect substitute thank God. Food was delicious and many guests expressed compliments for the bartender and serving staff. The Waterford Banquet room was beautiful and outside gazeebo area perfect for pictures and a ceremony if the weather cooperates which it did not but inside was so beautiful as well. Take a bow Karen for a job well done!!! More...
I recently had my wedding at the Riviera. They made my day wonderful. Karen was there for us every step of the way. Their wedding package is one you just can't find anywhere else. We had an amazing wedding and appreciate how hard the staff worked! I had nothing to worry about once we got there. All I needed to do was focus on my husband, Riviera took my worries and stress for me so I could enjoy our day. Thank you Karen and the staff who helped at our event! More...
We used to be members there, nice family sports center.
Everyone there was amazing! Especially Karen! They went above and beyond for us and made our wedding amazing. I'm so glad I found them and definitely will be back for our 10 year anniversary!
I can not even begin to tell you how fantastic this place is. I had my wedding yesterday and everything was above and beyond. The staff is great ,friendly, and super helpful it honestly felt like family. Food was fantastic everyone is calling me talking about it. I honestly could not have asked for more!! Thank you Karen and your entire staff for making my wedding absolutely perfect. More...
Great place for a workout! They have everything you need!
Besides making the choice to marry my best friend, choosing the Riviera Country Club was the BEST EVER! Karen and her staff did everything to make our day special and made sure we had everything we wanted! We have a very big family and everything fit us perfect from our budget to the space needed to make everyone enjoy the night! More...
W@s there for super bowl party ,best party ever ,great food and drinks and service was outstanding,highly recommend this place
We have been members since 2007. It is a great place if you don't care about fancy. People are very nice and helpful. We like to play tennis, use the inside track and attend classes . The instructors are good. Definitely could use some new carpet and updating of the bathrooms. We overlook that for convenience. The restaurant attached, Gatto's is very good and you get 10% off if you are a Riv member. More...
Karen was a pleasure to work with! Hall is nice and a great value everything is included- it's a flat fee. Glad I had my reception here and late night burger bar was amazing it is a must do!
From the day that we toured the Riviera to the day after our wedding it has been the best experience of our lives ... we just “ clicked “ with Karen . ... she has been the greatest , she had bent over backwards to make our day unforgettable From the food to the personal touches she was able to do for us it just made our day more special ... I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who has a function coming up . I feel we’ve made a friend for life More...
I just had my wedding reception at the Riviera on December 2nd and everything was fantastic! Karen and her husband are the owners and make sure everything is perfect from start to finish. Not only was their pricing the best pricing around the area but they offer everything in those prices! I went to several different places and they try to nickel and dime you for everything. At the riviera it is the set price and that includes open bar, the dinner with soup and salad, appetizers during cocktail hour, champagne, unlimited wine with dinner, all of their uplighting, center pieces, chair covers, and bows! The food was phenomenal and the servers were on top of everything! I would recommend the riviera to everyone! Especially if you are looking for a reasonably priced venue! More...
My husband and I were married on 11/18/2017 and we had our wedding at The Riviera Country Club in Orland Park, IL. We were extremely happy with how everything turned out.
The manager of the country club was very accommodating during our planning process, everything I asked for was delivered. The service was on point and the room was beautifully decorated; food was FANTSTIC! I’ve had a few friends tell me that they’re going to book their next big event at The Riviera Country Club. Thanks for such a memorable time.

Hosted our Daughters wedding and highly recommend!! Everything was perfect! Staff was excellent and food delicious! Beautiful venue!
I love this place!! Karen is a true blessing. She was very attentive to all our needs and then some. The food was amazing! and with the open bar included in their price turned our once in a lifetime wedding to the wedding of the century!! it is 2 months later and we are still getting compliments on how awesome our wedding was. The next day we went to pick up our stuff, they had it all packed up and waiting on us. The best part is the place didn't even look like we had a party there the night before. When planning for your wedding, especially on a budget, you cannot go wrong with this place!!! THANK YOU KAREN!!!! More...
The Riviera Country Club was phenomenal!! Karen (the manager), the bartenders, wait staff, and everyone else were amazing, friendly, and felt like family. I found the Riviera on Wedding wire and since it was my first time using the website, I was a little unsure. Once I met Karen and the staff I knew it was the right choice and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. AMAZING and I have already recommended the Riviera to five other brides to be! More...
The most stressful part of wedding planning for me was choosing the venue. Once I found Riviera Country Club and Karen, the rest was easy! I was an out of town Bride and Karen worked with me from a long distance! She would accommodate anytime we were in town and responds to emails instantly, putting my mind at ease. She works with you to create a vision I never had. The food was a perfect mix for me, I was able to have all my favorites from fried chicken to pastas! I wanted to find a big enough space for our families and friends to eat together and have a fun party, and this was the perfect venue to do it! More...
Really nice old club. Love the pool and the people here. Nice workout facilities and pool areas
I could not be any more pleased having my wedding at the Riviera country club. Karen took care of us and she was amazing with all of her customer service and helping set up for the wedding. The price is in sane compared to how many things we had there and how little they charge. Everything we could have asked for was available for us and at a great price! This was by far the best choice I made during wedding planning. The outside was beautiful, the inside was gorgeous! I got compliments on the food all night long especially the appetizers for cocktail hour! My pictures with the gazebo in the background turned out amazing and there was so much space for my 200 guests!! I highly recommend this place 1000%! More...
Where do I begin! Karen and her crew were amazing! Karen answered my emails within hours throughout the planning process, she was so helpful and you can tell she genuinely enjoys her job and wants nothing but the best for the bride and groom. My husband and I got married on a rainy day, but it was still the most beautiful wedding day we could have asked for. The food was AMAZING and piping hot when it was served to the head table and our guests! Everyone raved about the food and how delicious it was. We even got to try the food BEFORE we booked. The best part, no hidden fees! Karen was upfront about all the fees, taxes and gratuity. She helped make the wedding planning process a piece of cake! More...
When my husband and I first visited the Riviera I had a feeling this was it!! Karen and Dan the owner were there to greet us and show us the beautiful venue inside and out. Karen and Dan really are accommodating, take care of you and make you feel welcomed. Karen is very professional and she helped assist me through every detail of my big day!!The outside gazebo made for great pics and our guest kept talking about how beautiful the venue looked and how great the food was!! The Riviera is hands down the best place for a beautiful wedding and I'm so glad I had my wedding here!! More...
This is a great place to get married. The venue is beautiful and the staff is amazing!
We can't rave enough about the Riviera Country Club. The food was absolutely amazing and so was the staff. Karen and her team is definitely one of a kind and extremely accommodating to your needs. They are so kind and flexible and the amount of quality you receive here is irreplaceable. Our guest are still complimenting the food and venue itself and we can't wait to spread the word. Any bride who's looking for a great venue with exceptional service and a great price, The Riviera Country Club is the place to go. More...
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Riviera Country club and from start to finish they did an amazing job. They offer so much for your money that a lot of venues don't give you and have to pay extra for! Karen was very helpful and responded very fast with the questions we had, and was absolutely amazing and so caring and made sure we were happy no matter what. The venue is beautiful, and the outside gazebo/scenery. Also, the food is to die for which is always a plus. We are so happy we choose the Riviera to have our wedding there! We recommended this place highly for anyone getting married, or any event. Thank you Karen for everything you did to make our wedding day absolutely amazing :) We plan on using you again for a anniversary party later down the road !! More...
Where do I begin when it comes to the riviera! Everything was amazing the food the staff the venue. Karen helped me with everything she even helped me set up my things for the big day! She was so understanding super awesome. The riviera made my day the best it could be. All of my Guest love the food and atmosphere that they even want to have party's there. My husband and I still talk about how an amazing day it was and how great the food was :) we want to thank the riviera for making our big day the best day ever! More...
Everything was truly amazing! They made us feel special and were great and easy to work with! Karen the manager was truly amazing and went above and beyond to help me with planning and even with my other vendors! Plan on is coming back for our 10 year anniversary! More...
My husband and I cannot thank the Riviera Country Club and Karen enough for making our wedding reception absolutely perfect! From day one, Karen was so helpful and always quick to answer any questions we had. We had a taste testing and we brought my husband's parents with us, even before we booked and it was the best food we've ever had! Once we booked I must have emailed Karen with a million questions and she would respond in a timely manner and was so flexible with what we wanted. We didn't need to make multiple stops for pictures with the photographer because the Riviera has a beautiful setting in the back with a gazebo and pond. It was perfect for pictures! Our guests had an amazing time and couldn't stop saying how great the food and atmosphere was at the Riviera! You got so much for your money! Everything you could possibly think of was included! We highly recommend the Riviera for a wedding reception! And specifically working with Karen! She's amazing! :) Thanks for making our day so special! More...
This venue was THE place to have our wedding, especially after they won us over during the tasting meal that they served us. The food was outstanding and we were very excited to have found this place in a beautiful part of Orland Park. Before the wedding Karen answered all our questions and concerns quickly and efficiently. She felt like a long time friend by the time the ceremony came around. On June 4th, I married my best friend and our ceremony was perfect thanks to Karen and Riviera. The food was amazing, still piping hot until the last guest was served. The wait staff was impeccable so much so that I never even really noticed them, everything was just taken care of. The outside gazebo and lake was a magical addition to our ceremony that made it extra special. And the best part was how reasonably priced this establishment is, we could not have asked for a more memorable night that we will cherish for many years to come. Karen you rock!! Thanks for everything! More...
It is a nice place for workshop and small meetings, staff are friendly and they deliver a good food and good prices. You will get better than what you pay for
My husband and I were recommended to the Riviera Country Club by my co-worker after our first venue flaked out on us.
I was devastated and had lost all hope until I spoke to Karen. She was able to work with us and assured us that everything was going to be okay.
Our wedding was June 24, 2017 and the service was GREAT! When we went for our tasting, we knew this place was meant for us. The food was delicious and full of flavor. Karen's hospitality manners are fun and you can tell she knows her stuff. The day went so fast but I remember the wait staff being very efficient.
When I first called to find out information, I was not only called, but they made follow-up calls to make sure I received information that they sent me and to answer any questions I had.
I only gave 4 stars for professionalism because there is a lady there that is not too customer service friendly. I can not remember her name but I remember her being rude on the phone a few times that I spoke with her before we booked and a little less friendly after we booked. The tone in her voice was as if we were bothering her. My husband experienced it from her one time he called, as well, and my MOH mentioned the attitude she got from her the day of our wedding, as well. It all seemed weird because she was wonderful with me the day before our wedding. She doesn't seem to be this way all the time, so maybe it's just a part of her personality. Other than that, everyone was very professional, even the day of our wedding when we were running late.
The value of the services, food, and the venue itself is simply amazing! It's all inclusiveness was the best part for us. We didn't have to worry about anything.
We had a few personal downfalls along the way but Karen was there every step of the way assisting and understanding. There was a time that we didn't think we were going to pull it off. We looked into the possibility of postponing our wedding until the following year but Karen worked with us. More...
Karen and her team are amazing. The venue was beautiful. Everything was done just as my daughter wanted it to be. Very professional. Very helpful. An excellent value. My daughter checked out many venues, this one was hands down the best by far. Also, the food was GREAT!!! More...
The Riviera is the perfect place for any wedding! The staff is extremely helpful in the planning process and are very professional! They made the wedding day run so smoothly and made sure that everyone was taken care of. The food is absolutely amazing! Best value around by far. The staff was polite and very accommodating! The location itself is perfect for outdoor pictures with out even having to leave the location. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with our decision to have our wedding at the Riviera! More...
Our wedding on June 25th 2017 went flawlesly the staff were extremely professional and helpful.
Very nice ceremony area with gazebo by lake and fountains. The banquet hall is spacious and beautifully decorated. Bar is well stocked and the food was great.
Very easy to work with when you are on night shifts, answered all our questions promptly. More...
We had our wedding at the Riviera on June 24th. Everything was wonderful from the outdoor ceremony to the beautifully decorated reception.
You really get a lot for your money with the packages they offer. The food was excellent! We had lots of compliments from our guests the whole night! Karen was wonderful to work with.
She was so patient and accommodating which helped the whole night to run smooth. If you're looking for a wedding vendor that is easy to work with and affordable I definitely recommend the Riviera! More...
I loved my wedding! The venue has some great features and Karen and her team our excellent! Karen is extremely professional, responsive, flexible, and genuinely caring! Karen was helpful with all of the changes that come with wedding planning and even help to coordinate the rehearsal and wedding. And a plus is the food is delicious!! If I did all over again I would choose this same venue! More...
I must say I am very happy with my experience with the Riviera. Karen was so patient with me with everything she made sure I understood everything. The price was great we had the ceremony there and also our reception. She was there during our rehearsal, also Karen was there for the wedding ceremony itself to make sure everything ran smoothly. I would definitely recommend that you call and check the place out. They do allow you to do a tasting of the food because that is very important for a wedding. More...
Me and my husband got married here last month and it was fantastic! Karen was so accommodating with everything. The price was by far the best we found and included so much, from open bar to centerpieces to chair covers. Our ceremony was outside under a gazebo with a view of the pond. We had so many compliments! I would absolutely refer anyone getting married to check the riviera out! More...
It was a wonderful experience, they are so professional, helpful, very informative and easy to talk. They answered every question that I had.
We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Riv. I cannot recommend this venue enough! Everything was perfect! Karen was an absolute pleasure to plan with, and had every basis covered! This venue is gorgeous! The food was so delicious, that our guests are still talking about it. The service was excellent! Such a courteous, and accommodating staff! We cannot wait to do it all again in 10yrs, when we renew our vows. If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue, look no further, Riviera Banquets is by far the best!! More...
My sister had the wedding of her dreams!! They accommodated her along with the party and she loved everything. Would totally recommend for weddings/parties :)
Everything was excellent. The staff was very helpful and answered all our questions. Our wedding went very smooth and thats the best thing for a bride and groom
We booked this venue for my retirement party on May 5, 2017. After 29 years of working at the Orland Park Police Department I wanted to have my party in the town I worked for. I visited other venues in Orland Park but fell in love with the banquet room at the Riviera for the size and style. The owners were great, they worked with us on everything even giving us a carving station to go along with the hot and cold appetizer buffet. The decorations were gorgeous in the room and the night of the party I had several guests comment on the flowers on the tables. Anytime I had questions all I had to do is email Karen (one of the owners) and she responded right away. Everyone loved the food served that night. I would definitely recommend the Riviera Banquets to anyone looking to have a party or wedding. The cost was very economical for what we received. The owners are very friendly and we truly appreciated everything they did for us. More...
Our wedding turned out better than we ever could have imagined! The venue is GOREGOUS! The service was AMAZING! We worked with Karen and she was great to work with!
!! They try to ease your mind with the stress of planning a wedding as much as possible. We absolutely loved that tax and gratuity ( along with the topshelf open bar) was included in the plate pricing. They take all of the guess work out. We cannot thank them enough. Our day was just that... OURS! WE STRESSED ABOUT NOTHING (concerning the venue that is :)) If we had it all do to over we would not have changed a thing. Thank you Karen and Riviera!!!
The Dreher's More...
To put it simply, Riviera was amazing! From my very first meeting with Karen I knew this this would be the place where we would get married.
The entire process was seamless and pleasant. The food tasting alone is enough to make you choose the Riviera. They include so many things that would normally cost extra at other places. The venue itself is decorated perfectly, there really isn't much you have to do.
We initially planned for an outdoor ceremony but had to move it inside due to the weather. The inside ceremony was just as beautiful, I didn't feel as if I'd missed out anything, not having an outside ceremony. The food was great, the up lighting adds such a nice touch, and waitstaff was so attentive.
I was completely clueless when it came to wedding planning, but Karen was there every step of the way to answer my million questions. The day couldn't have turned better, I am so grateful for everyone at Riviera that helped to make my special day so memorable. Thank you! More...
The Riviera made our wedding experience wonderful. Our guests loved everything from the room to the food. The staff was wonderful! I recommend them highly. Check out their packages they are the best bank for your buck. More...
Ramon & Justine
Riviera Country Club provided Justine and I with an experience beyond anything we could've expected. Karen and Dan took our vision and brought it to life. The food was exceptional and their waitstaff was tremendous. Karen and Dan truly care about making sure your wedding is everything you want it to be and more. I highly recommend Riviera Country Club to everyone planning a wedding. More...
We received over the top service and Karen was flexible and supportive every step of the way. I would recommend Riviera to everyone.
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary vow renewal at the Riviera CC, the area they set up for us to do our vows was beautiful and so appropriate. The staff (including management) was so attentive to all our requests before, during and after our event. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for the perfect place. More...
We had our wedding here in late March and I can honestly say that we could not have hoped for a better experience! Karen and her team did an incredible job setting everything up and the place looked absolutely amazing.
We were hoping to have the ceremony outdoors and while the weather didn't cooperate, it made no difference because the staff at Riviera worked hard to make everything perfect for the indoor ceremony and we were not the least bit disappointed! Not only was the venue set up beautifully, the service was impeccable. Everywhere you turned there was someone ready to help with anything you might need. We have attended weddings at some of the "top" venues in the area and the service came nowhere close to the excellence displayed by the Riviera staff during our wedding. The "butler style" cocktail hour was a big hit... the food served for dinner was great and the drinks were plenty. Not only was the service level great, but there were more than enough staff to keep up with all the demands of our 150+ guests. There was never a line at the bar, which is a big issue we have seen at other weddings due to under-staffing. I don't want to ramble on too much but I do want to mention how easy Karen was to work with and the enormous value her experience brings to the table. She thought of absolutely everything and planned it all down to the smallest detail to make our day perfect. Lastly, we got way more for our money than I have seen anywhere else.... incredible value! Thanks again to Karen and the whole team for going all out to make our big day great!
Emily & Graham :) More...
Absolutely consider this venue. The staff is amazing, very accommodating, and very easy to work with for a good price.
I had an excellent experience working with Karen. She and the staff made my special day run smoothly. The food was fresh and delicious. It was a great ceremony and party! Thanks to everyone at Riviera Banquet Hall! More...
Love the classes...get a great work out..lot of machines to use..like the indoor walking track ..also offer personal trainers. .have not indulged in that yet...offers alot...just needs a little updating... More...
Well run facility with a wide variety of physical training options (weight machines, free weights, exercise machines, basketball, tennis, walking track, classes, etc. ). Full locker and shower facilities as well. Thumbs up!!! More...

I would love to b a member there. Ideal place for me..wit my Bells Palsy.. Looks like everything u need is there.. My Doctor want me to do strenuous exercise.. But can't get the Membership.�
From the moment we walked through the door on our first visit to the moment we left the night of the wedding, our experience with Karen and all staff at the riveria was outstanding. Karen gave great recommendations on every detail. She was always available for every question and never hesitated to help. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and there is more than enough space for example end very large parties. The food was amazing. Everyone enjoyed everything that was served. The bar tenders were fast and able to keep up with my crazy family so there was never a super long line. Overall, the Riveria is a great value and includes everything you could possibly want, much more than a lot of other venues we explored! Highly recommend! More...
Absolutely beautiful venue! I can not say enough how much I loved having my wedding at the Riviera. We were married in the gazebo and everything went so perfect. The food was delicious, I had many compliments from my guests. Karen, the coordinator, keeps everything going smoothly. Highly recommend this banquets hall More...
BEST VENUE EVER. Hands down. Karen was absolutely amazing with my 400 questions/emails a day and making sure everything was perfect for us. Guests loved the food, especially the soup, and everything was served fresh and HOT. Thank you Riviera for the best day of our lives! More...
Love love love! Everything was great! Food was awesome, Karen is great to work with!! Would definitely recommend!!

Member since 2004! Love it here! Every class and machine you can think of including personal trainers! Stop on by, you will be glad you did! A place to take care of YOU head to toe! Great staff from the top down- More...
Riviera Country Club was absolutely amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better day. They were so helpful with the set up the day before and the day of! Highly recommend for an affordable event for the day of your dreams! More...
Karen and Dan were unbelievably amazing!! Our night was more perfect then we expected!' Everyone has been raving about the chicken and all of the other food. The room was absolutely beautiful and went so amazing with our theme! This is the place to have your reception and if you do make sure you go out to the gazebo at night and take pictures because ours are beyond perfect! More...
This venue has it all!! Linens, food, chair bows, bridal suite, 6-stall restrooms, etc. The tasting itself will make you choose this venue. The food is delicious, the hospitality is amazing and Karen will do whatever she can to make you happy and your event fabulous! My husband, family and I were very pleased with the decor, the lighting, THE FOOD, and the overall venue itself. My day was perfect and I wish I could go back to that day and I know for a fact that this venue plays a major part in that feeling. Thank you for everything Karen! More...
Karen did a wonderful job. Everything was so perfect. I got so many compliments, especially on the chocolate fountain.. Highly reccomend it.
My wedding was July 17, 2016 and when i tell you Karen @ Riviera was awesome.. I couldn't ask for a better day. My guest said the food was absolutely delicious, hot and fresh and the open bar kept the drinks flowing throughout the night. I would definitely recommend this venue to any couple getting married in the future you will get your money worth and more. More...
Really nice venue very beautiful, loved it the second I walked in, very nice people and the food is so good. Service was on point and they were very responsive to all our questions and accommodated us beautifully thank you so much. Must talk to Karen she is the best :) More...
They were super accommodating and already included so many of the other "add ons" in to the price of the venue. They helped us to feel well taken care of so that we didn't have to worry about so many of the little details. From the first visit through the wedding day, we felt like we were in good hands and our guests raved about the venue and food! More...
Karen and Dan are just wonderful! They were SO accommodating to our needs and wants and took care of everything! They really do mean ALL INCLUSIVE!
The staff and food was great and we actually got married in the gazebo on a day that was supposed to storm but it cleared just an hour before our ceremony. They left it up to us whether we wanted it inside or outside...and it turned out to be a perfect outside ceremony after all. Just leaving us with that choice made us truly feel like it was "OUR DAY" and it truly was! Thanks for such a beautiful day and night!

My husband and I had our wedding here on 6/14/2016 and could not have asked for anything better. From the first time I walked in and spoke with Karen I knew things would run smoothly and that she cared about us as people and not as an amount of money they will profit off of. The food was amazing, the bar/ wait staff went above and beyond and Dan and Karen made sure everyone was taken care of at all times throughout the planning all the way down to when the night was over. I honestly could not have asked for a better place. They treat you like family and even calm you down when you need it, just because they know how you are feeling. More...

the staff and the owners are very helpful and very flexible they are truly amazing people to deal with and I would recommend you to anybodythe food was exceptional very good quality
My husband and I are so glad we had our wedding reception at Riviera. The food is awesome, the room was absolutely beautiful and we got the most "bang for our buck" here. Karen was very responsive to our questions, super friendly and great to work with. I will recommend Riviera to anyone looking for a wedding reception venue! More...
we were very pleased with everyone that served and the professionalism of everyone
Our reception was at the Riviera and we had an awesome experience. Everyone was quick to respond to emails/calls and very flexible with last minute changes. The food was great - we were even allowed a tasting PRE booking. They provide standard white decorations no matter what - silk flower vases, tulling, white table/chair covers, and awesome chandeliers. Included in our package was open bar, hors d'oeuvres (so good), and cake cutting. I highly recommend Riviera to anyone looking for a venue - they also have an outdoor gazebo and pond that would be great for pictures! More...
We had both our wedding and outdoor ceremony at the Riviera Country Club on April 16, 2016 and were blown away by the overall experience.
The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience. Karen and the rest of the staff were nothing but helpful in the run up and during the course of our wedding and the reception- we couldnt praise them enough. They made sure that all of our emails and phone calls with questions were responded to literally within in minutes!
As a wedding venue we couldnt fault anything. The food was out of this world and all our guests commented on the quality of food on offer. There are many good add-on options for late night snacks for or guests- my parents choose to gift us with the surprise of the Slider Bar, I highly recommend this option. Our guests were all running to the slider bar that is brought out by a chef and prepared in front of everyone because it was such a cool presentation and smelled delicious! The slider bar has to be seen to be believed! The drinks were also abundant and the bar tenders were quick and friendly when serving our guests.
The venue played a huge part in the success of our wedding ceremony and reception and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that. We had the best night of our entire lives thanks to the Riviera! We thank Karen and everyone else at the Riviera for all of the hard work and CARE that was put in to making our wedding everything we could have hoped for and more! More...
The Riviera was perfect! If we had to do the day all over we would not have changed a thing! Food was amazing, service was great, hall looked amazing! It was everything we ever could have imagined! Working with the Riviera was a great experience. They were flexible and helpful in every way! They responded to emails & calls immediately and worked around my schedule! I would recommend them to everyone for a wedding! More...
Having our wedding ceremony at Riviera Country Club was an excellent decision. The Gazebo is beautiful and it was so nice to arrive early slip on my dress and take pictures.
It took all the stress away. All of my bridesmaids were ready and we just went out to the Gazebo and the lake to take pictures. It was wonderful not to rush. My husband to be came and we did our first look. It took away all of the stress. Our officiant lined us up and we walked down the aisle. I thought I am so glad we had the ceremony here!!!. After we were married we went inside for a moment and then went back our for pictures while our guests enjoyed the cocktail hour. The servers at Riviera were so nice and helpful. They brought hor dourves out for all of us in the wedding party. They were delicious! Our guests all commented on how good they were.
We felt so reassured that the owners Karen and Dan would be there for our reception. We were announced into our wedding reception and everything went so well. The wedding party hardly talked during dinner. They all loved the food. It was so delicious. I We loved the venue when we first saw it but they were one of the only venues that allowed us to try the food. They had a big tasting with all the couples and allowed us to try all the food. It was all so good. We loved our dinner.
We danced all night.
We along with our parents got so many compliments on the entire place. The bartenders were so fast and so nice! The servers were super nice to everyone.
I would not hesitate to have my ceremony and reception here. They are wonderful to work with, the price is great and so much is included. They allowed us to come in the day before to decorate. They gave us a list of their favorite vendors and we loved them, we chose our officiant, DJ and photographer and they were great.
Wonderful service, outstanding homemade food, delicious homemade hor dourves, extremely clean venue are just a few of the things we loved. More...
My family and I had to plan the wedding in 20 days and the Riviera Club was absolutely fantastic! They were extremely flexible and helpful :) Some of the details were lost in the grand scheme of things, but that was to be expected with any venue on such short notice.
We had a great experience with the Riviera staff. Because of an expected military deployment we had only three weeks to plan a wedding with over 150 guests (! ), and Karen was incredibly helpful and supportive. Having so many extras included in the advertised price (e.g., chair covers, appetizers, tax) was a welcome change from the other six venues we considered. Going with Riviera was an easy decision, and the wedding and reception were fantastic. More...
My Fiancé and I were looking for a reputable venue to have our wedding and were pleasantly surprised by the value that the club provided. The food was Incredible and our guests raved about the quality of service that was provided. The management staff made sure that our every request was accomodated. A Special Thanks to Karen for her Individual Attention to make our Wedding less Stressful. It was a Magical Evening that Every Bride should have the opportunity to experience. More...
I had my wedding ceremony and reception here. The owners are really nice and they worked really well with my husband and I. The interior is nice and elegant. The exterior provides you with beautiful pictures with the gazebo and the lake side view. The food is tasty especially the hors d'oeuvres! My experience with the staff was pleasant and professional. I will definitely recommend to others. Actually, I was recommended by a friend after attending her and husband's reception here. More...
The BEST health club facility I have ever belonged to: the people are GREAT, nice environment and wonderful atmosphere. My pediatrician Dr. Thomas Driscoll helped the O'Connell family start the Riviera Country Club I can't say enough of the O'Connell family except thank you. More...
My fiancé ,now husband, and I booked our venue 13 months before our wedding date. Thinking we were ahead of the game, we continued to plan and book all things needed for our special day, only to get a call 4 months before our wedding day notifying us that our venue had been sold and they would be returning our money since they cancelled our event. Great. You can just imagine the panic that came over me, receiving that call on a Friday night. My then fiancé was out of state and I had to deal with this all by myself. All I could think was, where are we going to find a new venue within our budget, big enough for our guest count, and available on such short notice!? My bridesmaids, friends and family all helped us call and email over 15 places, all booked, too expensive, or simply too small. I emailed Riviera Country Club and they not only had our wedding date available but they also had enough room for our guest count. We immediately made an appointment. Once we arrived, we checked out the place and loved it, but it unfortunately was over our budget. We explained out situation to them and they were beyond understanding with our situation and they gave us an offer we could pass. They were beyond helpful every step of the way! When the big day finally came, everything was absolutely perfect!! The place looked beautiful and the food, my goodness the food(!!!), it was amazing! There are no words to express how greatful we are!! We recommend Riviera to everyone 110%. You will not regret it!!! More...
Sheeee's Bacckkk!!! I am so happy to have our girl Giovanna return to her Saturdays mornings.. She's awesome!!
I been a member at the riviera for about 15 years. It is a total health club. It has a track, every machine you could possibly want. Large sauna and large steam room. Indoor and outdoor pool. Beautiful indoor basketball court. Plus outdoor court. Tennis, racket ball. All kinds of exercise classes. Personal trainer available. Snack bar for coffee,protein drinks,smoothies. Most of all it has a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone. More...
We held our wedding at the Riviera on Sept 4th. From beginning to end Karen and her crew were a joy to work with. The venue was absolutely beautiful and set up exactly as we had discussed. Karen was very helpful in making last minute changes to the tables as head count changed literally until the wedding began. The food was delicious (or so I'm told; we really didn't eat much of it). I've lost count of the number of guests who have told us that this was the best wedding....ever, and a lot of the credit goes to Karen and her team. With an all-inclusive price, the Riviera was by far the best value of the venues we considered. If I were planning my wedding again, I would make the exact same choices. Thanks Karen for helping to make our wedding a day to remember. Lynn ^ Peter More...
Our wedding was absolutely PERFECT!!!! We don't have one bad thing to say about the Riviera! Every single time we called, whoever answered the phone was so accommodating, polite, and answered our questions. We could drop by at any time to see the place or speak to someone and they ALWAYS had a smile! The food was DELICIOUS!!! The place is gorgeous! The servers and bartenders are awesome! We loved everything about this place and would HIGHLY recommend to anyone!!! Thank you for making our day so perfect! More...
Riviera is a great place to work out, take a fitness class or hang out by the pool. No other area health club has this type of atmosphere. No one trying to sell you anything. Great people! More...
The staff at Riviera Country Club were always so accommodating! We started planning our wedding in February 2015 and had our wedding in September. It turned out exactly how we wanted it! Everything was perfect. The gazebo was such a gorgeous place to have our ceremony, everyone loved it! The food was fantastic, and all of our guests raved about how well everything turned out. The bar staff was really friendly. We opted to have the chocolate fountain feature that Riviera offers, and we heard nothing but good things. There was room for the photo booth we rented and everyone had a great time! We would highly recommend this venue, considering our budget and our short-term planning period, Riviera made everything so much easier for us and we are forever grateful! More...
The owners Karen & Dan, and all of their staff were amazing from the first (free) tasting until the end of the reception! What is included in the packages is MORE than you will get elsewhere . We were so happy with our choice of venue. Even though the weather didn't cooperate and we had to move it indoors (tornado warnings will do that- LOL) it was beautiful and FUN!!! Thanks again for making it so easy!!! More...
They set up the Lakeviee room beautifully. They were very understandable if something came up. The food was great!! I was a very happy bride!!!
I think Dan and Karen were amazing before and during or day. The venue is very nice and everything was included in our price packaging, so there was no surprise bill at the end of the night. I enjoyed my night worry free.
The Riviera was so wonderful to work with! Our wedding was everything we could have imagined!
This venue was perfect for us. The room we had was big enough to hold the 400 guests we invited. They included tax, gratuity, center pieces, chair covers and uplighting all within the plate per person price - which was a GREAT deal. We used the outside ceremony spot - beautiful grass huge white gazebo, pond in the background. It was beautiful. If you're looking for a venue with a lot to offer for a cheap price, look no further. The staff was great to work with. I booked them almost a year out in advance and for the whole year I would email them with questions or concerns or just asking if they could accommodate one of my crazy ideas and they never told me no and I usually recieved an email back within the day. The food is amazing! And like their website says, their chicken is the best. We did family style dinne and I'm still getting hearing from people 3 weeks after the wedding how great all the food was. You definitely get plenty of tastey food along with ice cream (with your cake) for desert. I have nothing bad to say about this place. I hope everyone enjoys their experience with Riviera as much as I did. They truly made my wedding top notch. I didn't have to worry about a thing that night, except having fun. More...
Riviera was great! Our wedding was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with!
We had such an amazing experience with this venue. The food was amazing. The people were outstanding. They truly made our experience one we'll never forget. They put so much work into making it as easy for you and as enjoyable as they can. I wouldn't have changed a thing. More...
I love the riviera country club in orland! They did an amazing job and staff was very friendly. Thank you for helping me make our day special.
The staff here was fabulous! always so helpful and always so quick to respond. They were nothing short of amazing and our wedding day was perfect because of them! We had our ceremony here as well and it was so beautiful. The outside area was amazing, food was great, service fantastic, and decorated so nicely. I would recommend them to anyone! More...
our wedding day was magical and not very stressed from having our wedding here. I brought in table runners to add some color to the all white tables. Everything is included though like the linen, chair covers and chair bows. Other places we looked at added extra for it. Also, this place has the tax and gratuity INCLUDED into the price which makes it very affordable. The food was amazing! People would not stop commenting on all the food and how delicious it all was. More...
Riviera was a delightful venue!! They were there for us from the beginning to the end of the entire process. The tasting was made available to us PRIOR to booking them. That's only fair in my book. When we sat down to talk about pricing, we were blown away at the prices and availability of options. They were so flexible on everything from bringing in beer of your own If you want which we appreciated. The evening snack option was available as well to bring in pizza for all the late nighters. They are down to earth people, not snooty, which is very important when you want to get things done by asking a REAL person that's willing to go the extra mile to accommodate your wish. Timely responses to emails, phone calls and at the actual wedding a few last minute requests fulfilled as well. Our organizer was there for a while the night of to make sure everything went off as planned, and let me know she was leaving halfway through..... I was worried and asked well what do we do if we need something She responded with "see the owner" Wow, he was there all night and at our service!! Wonderful person by the way and you'd never know he was the owner with how much he was contributing to the team of waitstaff. Perfect place, price, food, service.... Just awesome. We will be sending a warm thank you card to them for their efforts. Above the call of duty by far!!! More...
The Riviera was an incredibly beautiful place!! The owners (Karen and Dan) are super nice, down to Earth people. They made our day so special and were so fun to talk to. Everything was so smooth! The entire staff was professional, fun and helpful!!! The place itself is gorgeous!! I would recommend the Riviera to anyone! The food is delicious too! More...
The owners and staff at the Riviera were amazing! They were very flexible with everything for us. Everything was wonderful! The food was the best! They even accommodated our gluten free guests. Definitely would recommend if you are looking for a great venue! More...
I had found the Riviera in search for a ceremony/reception location for my daughter. On our first visit to the Riviera we were actually so pleased with the reception room and the outdoor ceremony location that we had skipped our visit to another venue that we originally planned to visit the same day.
We were looking forward to the next step which was the tasting. However unfortunately with my daughter and son in laws busy schedules we were unable to go on the days scheduled. We almost passed the Rivera up because of this. I then emailed with Karen the issue we were having and she accommodated us. We loved the food at the tasting and this time my daughters fiance was with us and he loved the location also.
This is not my first time needing a ceremony/reception location. Therefore I feel the need to point out some extras that come with the reception room and you may use at no extra cost.
White Satin Chair Covers with Bows
TALL Glass Centerpiece Vases with White Silk Roses
Lighting behind the head table with color choice options
Please keep in mind these are white and some may not prefer the all white but what we did was added table runners and a few other decor of my daughters wedding colors that popped out more because of the white. I also feel I should point out that I own a wedding supplies business and with that being said I have access to all the decor we would have needed and we did not need to replace any of the supplied from the Riviera nor did we have to use a lot extra.
The Gazebo for the ceremony is beautiful and large. I have to mention that when you first see the outdoor location if you have a huge guest list as we did this may make you nervous if you don't see the actual seating setup. However believe Karen when she assures you they can accommodate the seating. As the Riviera did for us.
Karen is very helpful and she is a wonderful person. Very attentive staff also.
All of our guests were amazed with the Riviera. More...
Our wedding was 4/24/15. We are so happy that we chose the Riviera. Karen and Dan are the owners and they were amazing. Our day couldn't have been any better. Food was great, servers were caring, the staff was flexible to accommodate to our needs, and our guests had a blast. The cost was very low for such great quality, and saying we are pleased is simply an understatement. More...
This is a fabulous venue. We had my daughter' ceremony outside and the view was perfect. They were very responsive and willing to switch on a moments notice to an indoor ceremony if we arrived decided it was too cool for the sleeveless girls. We had very little to do as far as decor. They supply very nice table centerpieces and chair covers which is a huge cost savings. Family style food was good and no one went home hungry. We were able to come a couple days before which gave us extra time in case we forgot anything. I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Karen was super in helping us plan the details and she didn't mind my numerous emails and calls asking questions. More...
Loved this venue. Very easy to work and accommodating.
We love the Riviera!
From the moment we walked into the Riviera, my husband and I knew it was going to be the location for our wedding reception. We immediately felt comfortable in the environment and with the staff. We HIGHLY recommend the Riviera to anyone looking for a reception venue.
As a couple on a budget, we were not sure if we would be able to afford the type of reception we wanted. We are so thankful to have found the Riviera because they offered a variety of package options – several of which that met our budget! So we were still able to make some choices about what we wanted. We chose to get married during “the off season” in March, which also made the price per person more budget friendly. They really made our dream wedding come true.
Karen and Dan were absolutely wonderful to work with. I was a very stressed bride, who frequently emailed and called with questions (Am I allowed to bring in? What size are the tables? How many people fit at the head table? You name it and I asked it!). All of my questions were promptly attended to. I often stopped by on my way home to ask a question, or plan the layout of the table. I was always welcomed with a smile, and everyone was always happy to help.
Our reception was everything that we could have asked for, and the most important thing….our guests were HAPPY! The food was served hot and it was delicious (and it was exactly like the tasting we had before we booked). The staff and servers were all professional and polite. The entire venue was clean. We had a wonderful time, and so did all of our family and friends.
We are just about to celebrate our first anniversary, and reminiscing about everything that happened during our wedding, We both 100% agreed that the Riviera was a perfect choice for our reception. Never once did we feel like we were just another number to them. Dan and Karen genuinely wanted us to be happy and to have the wedding we wanted. Which we did! More...
I have never been compelled to write a review for anything. This is a first. The venue, service and food were all fantastic. Karen worked with us to insure a great event and they didn't disappoint. I have played 100's of wedding venues in a band and this one is by far the best I have seen. Everyone at the event commented on either how beautiful the venue was or how good the food was, but most commented on both. My new wife and I are overjoyed with how it turned out. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for ANY occassion. More...
We could not say enough about the Riviera Country Club!! Karen, the owner/manager, was like having our own personal wedding consultant/planner without a fee.
She is amazing!
I emailed her a lot (we joke that we will now miss each other as pen pals), and she always responded quickly. While she is the epitome of professionalism, her warmth and wonderful personality just make you feel like you are dealing with a friend and someone who genuinely cares about you and your happiness.
Everything was outstanding. We also had a ceremony there (in the reception hall) and it was also amazing. Nice touches of candles and an arch, etc.
The wait staff and bar staff was great. The appetizers were very good and plentiful.
The food was outstanding. Everyone raved about it - and I mean the most discerning individuals! :-) We had fried chicken (just like Mom's, bar none), roast sirloin and mostaccoli served family style. No one went hungry - just the opposite.
Everything was just perfect, just like Karen assured me it would be! Any question I had, any care, concern, was immediately attended to. This I what brides need!!
My new husband calls the Riviera the "best kept secret in the suburbs" I have to agree!
If you are considering the Riviera, stop looking and book it. You will NOT be disappointed! More...
Riviera was wonderful! We were able to do a lot with Karen our wedding coordinator where other places would have said NO!
Such as we were able to decorate early and bring in our own table runners. The price is unbeatable and quality of food and drink were beyond expectation. Our guest enjoyed there plated meal and said appetizers were delicious.
The only things I would have done different and I am sure Karen would have obliged was that the bridal room could have some champagne and appetizers waiting. I was at cocktail hour but the servers did not come by me. Champagne server did ;) Also, Karen was there the night of the wedding and was available to help .
Outside gazebo and lake is also gorgeous!! More...
After visiting four venues, my (now) husband and I had a gut feeling that Riviera was the place to hold our reception. After our tasting appointment, we knew they would do a wonderful job; when 10-18-2014 came along, our wedding reception was more than we could have asked for. Karen, Dan, along with their staff were absolute gems. We had numerous guests compliment the venue, the food and beverage provided, overall attentiveness of the wait staff, and beautiful ambience created at Riviera. Everything moved smoothly and was perfect. Karen and her staff were so great to work with and were accomodating to our needs. Karen was incredibly helpful when last minute questions arose or things might needed to be altered before the big day. She offered suggestions and provided her insight from her past experiences to ensure our day was perfect! Everyone was incredibly attentive and responsive leading up to our day and the day/night off! We could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding reception, because Riviera is the best! Thank you, Karen, Dan, and the staff at Riviera! More...
THANKS to the staff at the Riviera for making my daughters wedding day the day she has always dreamed off. Everything was perfect. The staff was very accommodating. I loved that we could taste the food before signing the contract. The price per plate was very reasonable. I also loved that the tax & gratuity was included. No hidden cost. We choose to have family style The food was excellent & came out hot. Everyone raved about the food & service. The dance floor was very spacious. There was a wedding going on in the next room & you would have never known it. We didn't hear their music & I am sure they didn't hear ours. I would highly recommend the Riviera! GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE & GREAT ATMOSPHERE! More...
We did quite a bit of research, and visited four other venues before choosing Riviera Country Club for the Wedding Reception. While other venues made it difficult to discern provided services and costs, Riviera clearly stated these items right from the start. Every detail that was a concern- number of people at the table, specific imported beer, etc. was met with the same positive response - the Riviera staff would work with us to make the Wedding Reception exactly what we wanted. They allowed us to decorate the tables for the Disney-themed wedding in advance, and let us come in on Sunday morning to pick up the many heirloom collectibles that were part of these decorations. Any time we asked Karen a question of what her experience was, or what she would recommend she promptly, shared her expertise. Riviera owner Dan was at the reception on Saturday night, and made sure the food was prepared and served perfectly, and that the bar was running smoothly. Many guests complimented the parents of the bride and groom on the wonderful venue, delicious food, and comfortable ambiance. With the supreme efforts of Karen and Dan the Wedding Reception was all we had hoped for and more. We are happy to share this review so that other couples can have the same great experience. More...
THe venue is beautiful and decorated already. The chandeliers and lighting and all the white and perfect for an elegant wedding. Food was good, drinks were good. We received several compliments regarding the venue. I was very happy my husband and I chose the Riviera to get married. More...
The Riviera Country Club in Orland Park, IL was great. The owners Karen & her husband were awesome and All the staff is very professional.
They All took care of us to the fullest.
They made our day very special. The food was delish, everyone after the wedding for days was raving about the Riviera. I would recommend The Riviera Country Club to anyone. Thank you so much for making our day special & being a part of it.

We were very happy with our venue! The Riveria was very accomidating and the food was great! It seemed if something could go wrong with this wedding it did. The mother of the bride broke her hip 8 months prior to the wedding and was having a difficult recovery and 5 people standing up for the wedding decided not to show up 2 days before the wedding. Day of, we had to change the wedding from outdoors, to inside and Rivera made this change easy and hassle free. More...
Everything was wonderful and all who attended commented on how nice everything was. This was a high school reunion and I can not recommend Riviera highly enough. From the decorations to the service to the friendly and professional staff, to the food and definitely, the flexibility working with us as our event neared, Riviera DEFINITELY DELIVERED!! More...
We had our ceremony and reception here and it was absolutely beautiful! We had 220 guests and I received all compliments on how beautiful everything was! ! They were very accommodating to our wishes. We were able to have our dogs there for the ceremony as flower girl and ring bearer!! Getting responses to our questions/requests were very timely! They love putting on weddings and it shows!! And somehow they even pulled off getting us beautiful weather that day so the ceremony was outside in the gazebo!! We had the wedding of our dreams and we are so thankful for all they did for us!! I would highly recommend having your wedding at the Riviera Country Club! More...
My now husband and I had are wedding and reception here on July 12, 2014. It was the most beautiful wedding and reception. Karen was great with responding to my every email. The food was great and service was excellent. We are still today receiving compliments about the big day. I love Karen and the staff. More...
My husband and I had our wedding here back in June and people are still raving about how beautiful, and elegant the place was. In addition, the food ratings were great which is typically not the norm for a wedding!! Overall price rage was very reasonable for what was included. Staff was very nice and helpful throughout the whole process. They even helped my husband get a stain out of his tux before the wedding!!! (which I didn't find out until after the wedding...lol) I would definitely recommend this venue to others!!!! More...
My family has held several events at the Rivera banquet Club. Karen and John always go overboard to make out event extra special . The staff is very accommodating . I will recommend this venue to everyone.the food is very tasteful. More...
Riviera Country Club went above and beyond our expectations to make our day special, beautiful, and stress free! The owners and staff were more than willing to work with us throughout the whole process to design our day the way we wanted. The outdoor gazebos are beautiful and the venue created a great set up for our outdoor ceremony to accommodate many guests. We are so happy we chose Riviera Country Club for our wedding! More...
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Riviera! Karen got back to me immediately when I emailed her with questions and was very accommodating for any special requests. The rooms are beautiful, the outdoor space was perfect for our ceremony and the prices are great for what was included, everyone said the food was excellent. They even recommended my DJ, who just could not have been nicer or easier to deal with. Many thanks to Karen, Dan, Lauren and the whole staff that helped make our day great! More...
We had looked at several other places to hold our wedding ceremony and reception at. While we had one particular place in mind, after meeting with Carol at the Riviera we knew we had found the right place. The Riviera was the only place to send us a thank you for visiting with them and how they would love to have us book our special day with them. Every time we went there we had an extremely positive experience. The owner, Karen could not have been more accommodating to us. The day of our wedding we moved the ceremony inside due to inclement weather and it was so lovely. The reception was more than I imagined it would be, the food was phenomenal! If anyone wanted more food, it was brought immediately. I have heard from several of my guests how impressed they were with the service. All of the staff were remarkable. When I returned the following day to pick up some of my things I told them I was going to miss this place. I am so thankful that a friend mentioned the Riviera Country Club to us! More...
Riviera Country Club was a wonderful vendor. We had been there for a wedding prior to ours so we knew how good the food was, but they still insisted that we come in for a tasting. The food was excellent! The service was awesome as well. I work in the industry and usually when someone says that it makes me cringe, but they had a ton of servers on the floor the entire time. We always had plenty of food and I even saw Karen out there busing the tables. Just a wonderful experience and one less thing I had to worry about on our special day. Plus the pricing, with what they included, was unbeatable anywhere else. Definitely recommend them!! More...
My husband and I love the Riviera! They did everything we asked them to do and even catered to our gluten free guests! We had a wonderful night and everything went so smoothly the day of.
They are extremely nice and professional and were so helpful with all our needs.
Theresa and Carl More...
Our wedding went so smoothly and pretty much stress free thanks to Riviera Country Club!!! The owners Dan and Karen are great! Anytime I had questions I would call there and the staff was always polite and knowledgeable! I was very impressed that the owners were both there the night of our reception, keeping a close eye on the flow of things! We had our ceremony there also, unfortunately we had to move it inside due to weather. It was still beautiful though! The grounds are beautiful for pictures. Now to the important part... the food was amazing!!! All of our loved it, especially the chicken. Their prices are so reasonable. The price includes appetizers, 4 hour open bar, taxes and all the linen including the chair covers. Definitely worth looking into the Riviera and going for a taste test! More...
Our daughter and son-in-law just had their ceremony and reception at the Riviera. The service was impeccable. All the wait staff and bartenders were friendly, courteous, and smiling. The price includes everything (alcohol, appetizers, dinner, cake cutting and service, head table back lighting, tax, gratuity and more). We were able to taste the food before signing the contract which is very unusual. The food was amazing, especially the appetizers. Karen and her staff were flexible and willing to work with us. We had so many of our guests come up to us and tell us how impressed they were with the Riviera. You will not be disappointed if you have your wedding and/or ceremony at the Riviera. More...
Great venue to get married at and have a reception. The staff is extremely attentive and the food is awesome. I had a blast at my wedding and could not say enough nice things about these people!!!
My now husband and I had our ceremony and reception at the Riviera Country Club. The owners were very flexible and made the night one to remember! We were allowed to bring in our own decorations and set up the night before. The food and service was AMAZING!! I really do recommend the Riviera to anyone that is looking for a venue that is cost efficient, beautiful, flexible and has great food! More...
Many thanks to all the staff that helped make our wedding day special. Karen went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable and enjoyed the day.
We also had guests with special dietary needs and they were very helpful with their needs. The owners are on site the day of your event to ensure all goes well..
We would recommend the riviera to all of our friends and family. More...
My husband and i had both our ceremony and reception at Riviera August 30th and wouldnt change anything. Every employee was very helpful and prompt with answers. I felt like i was working along side family and not just employees/owners. I appreiciated the fact that they even helped out by putting some of my outdoor decorations up when myself and family had a hard time getting there the morning of the wedding. The food is GREAT. I cant tell you how many guests of mine told me how great the chicken, green beans and mashed potatoes were. The liqiour package is also great, not many places offer top shelf, bottled and draft beer. Let alone to let you bring in other varities of drinks. Many of my guests that are not married yet said they would totally be interested in having their wedding at Riviera as well. I hope and believe you will also have such a great experience as i did if you choose to get married at Riviera. More...
My now husband and I just got married here on Saturday 8/17/13 and the owners Karen and her husband and their staff are phenomenal.
They made my day even more special than I could have ever imagined. My guest are still talking about how prompt the wait staff were during the cocktail hour and dinner, they were very attentive and they had more than enough staff to wait. I was able to express my vision by using my own decorations and centerpieces with no problem and they helped enhance that vision and I can't thank them enough for that. So if you are looking to get married in the chicagoland area, PLEASE don't hesitate to call them at the Riviera and tell them Mr. & Mrs. Derek Shelton referred you.
P.S. If you are looking for decoration ideas please contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org or gmail.com More...
It was a month before we were supposed to get married & we received the news that our venue was in a fire.There I was a month before the biggest day of my life & we had no banquet hall. We began to search frantically for a new hall & it was TOUGH! Most places were either booked or the room was just way too small! I honestly thought that we would have to postpone the wedding. I found The Riviera Country Club after reading some reviews. Ppl raved about their food so I contacted them since the quality of the food was a HUGE factor for us. Karen from the club contacted me right away! We made an appt to see the venue & let me say that the pictures on their website really do not show how BEAUTIFUL those halls really are! As soon as I walked into the room that they have available for us my eyes lit up! It was exactly what I had envisioned & I seriously fell in love. I loved the décor that they had available for us to use, a small lake as a back drop and they even had an outside gazebo that we could use for photos! Dan & Karen quickly set up a food tasting for us even before we decided to go with them! That is where my fiancé fell in love and that won him over. =] [Especially their chicken!!] We STILL have people telling us that they LOVED the food that day! Our guests were impressed by the quality of service that they received that day and that they did not even have to ask for a refill because the waiters were consistent in refilling their food. Considering we had only a few weeks until our wedding, let me RAVE how Karen and Dan were just SO accommodating during the process! Karen was remarkable at replying to my constant emails & answered all my daily questions! We were constantly reminded that our day was going to go by smoothly & they are REALLY sincere, honest, genuine people! Our wedding day was simply awesome & I was beyond impressed w/the club! So THANK U to the Club for everything! I’m beyond thankful to God who blessed us with placing you guys in our path!! More...
Riviera Country Club could not have been a better choice for our wedding. We had about 110 people attend and the space was perfect. The other room is larger for bigger events. The food was delicious. Dan, Karen, Julie, and Courtney could not have been more helpful during the planning process. As a nervous bride, I was in CONSTANT contact via e-mail and phone calls in the months, weeks, and especially days before my wedding. All staff reassured me that everything would be taken care of and it was. Last night special requests were taken care of without batting an eye. They allowed us to bring in some specialty liquors at no extra charge. What you see is truly what you get. There were no hidden fees...not even tax and tip!! Everything was included. Simply multiply your price per person and you are done. THey allowed us to make payments throughout the planning process on credit card so we could earn the points...many places do NOT allow this. I could not have been happier with our choice. The fact that the venue was a bargain was just icing on the cake!! More...
I did a lot of research looking at banquet halls, restaurants and hotels online. When I called to set up an appt. to meet them, they suggested I go a the food tasting and to look at the rooms this facility had to offer. I was amazed. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. The food was great and they give you so much for your money. They work with you on ideas that are best for your party type and let you decide what you would like to do. I threw my husband a "surprise" 50th Birthday party and our guests said the food was outstanding, not to mention the great service of the waiters and bartenders- ALL were very professional. i will definitely recommend them. Thanks so much Karen and Dan for all your help. It truly was a memorable night! Kathy & Gene More...
We found Riviera Country Club after visiting several facilities and looking at several menus. We liked that Riviera offered a package that included the cocktail reception and taxes. The owners were always responsive and professional. The rooms were elegant but not over the top. Our guests are still talking about the food and they said that it was the best steak that they ever had. If you're looking for a nice place with great service on the day of, then Riviera Country Club is your place. More...
Courtney at Riviera went above and beyond what she needed to do. She helped us go over everything a few days before, she stayed with us for three hours the day before to try to figure out how to get our slideshow to work. She also got in contact with the baker that was suppose to deliver the sweets when they were closed. Courtney was the reason everything went so smoothly. I would definitely recommend Riviera to anyone who wants their big day to go smoothly. Thanks!! More...
Courtney was wonderful, she answered messages and phone calls promptly. Everything was wonderful, I just wish more staff could have been avaliable the night of the wedding. Courtney was having a food tasting with a perspective couple in the other hall, which I personally was insulted by that, because she assured me that she was going to be avaliable on the night of my wedding but she was no where to be found when issues arose. More...
I can't begin to say how wonderful Riviera Banquets and their staff was at our wedding! We researched lots of venues near our home and Riviera offered beyond the best prices of all of them. It made our decision very easy when choosing our reception area. We didn't have to worry about spending extra money on the other things like chair covers and cocktail hour. It was all included in our dinner plate price along with tax and grautity! Who could ask for more?! From the beginning, Riviera was very accomendating and helpful with my husband and I. We felt at ease knowing that we could call, email, or stop in at anytime with any questions. We even had their cell phone numbers! Even til this day, everybody is still talking about the food and how beautiful Riviera was! Once again, perfect location and perfect venue! I couldn't ask for more. Thanks again to Courtney and Dan for all their hard work and dedication. More...
There is a reason that Riviera has stayed in business for so long. They provide an excellent service at a great price. The staff was absolutely wonderful and they were so willing to do everything I wanted. The food is the best I have ever had at a reception. One thing that I particularly like is the fact that there are no hidden costs. What you see is what you get. I couldn't have been more pleased with the place. It was absolutely perfect...I wouldn't have changed a thing. All of the guests at the wedding were equally amazed by the service! More...
Cory was very open to any ideas I had for our wedding and made sure he met our requests. Our ceremony and reception was just wonderful and all that I could ask for. Cory's attitude was very laid back and calming and was there to help with all that he could on the wedding day. He was also quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls. More...
It is hard to find to words to express how exceptionally perfect the Riviera Country Club is. The halls are beautiful and spacious. The management and staff are terrific, I had not one worry or complaint, EVERYTHING was taken care of. The smallest details were attended to. The food is also excellent. Guests raved about the Riviera! Our Ceremony was held at the beautiful outside gazebo. I couldnt have asked for a better day or better service! More...
The Riv was excellent. It looked beautiful. They were super nice to work with. They'd bend over backwards just to please us and do anything we requested. I'd highly advise someone to have their wedding reception there. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. More...
Our coordinator was Kelly, she did an awesome job, was always on top of things, always knew were things were. I literally just had to have fun at the wedding, she made it perfect and I could never thank her enough for making our day so perfect. We had forgot our marriage license also and she handled that and told me not to worry about it. I will never forget that. All the food was fantastic and so much of it, no one could finsih their plates More...
Every single aspect of our reception was perfect thanks to Karen and the staff at Riviera Country Club. Our room was set up exactly as we asked, and the food was delicious. All of our guests are still talking about the great food and service. The price is exceptional as the Riviera is one of the few places that tax and gratuity are covered in the cost of the plate. Chair covers, centerpieces are also covered in the cost of the plate. I cannot recommend the Riviera Country Club enough. More...
