We've been coming here since they first opened. Lots of changes recently. Some for the better...salads have larger amount of red peppers, tomatoes are better, quality of lettuce seems better. Meatball...s are freshly made. Pizzas seem the same..a good thing. Not happy they took out all of the hightops on the dining side. If you happen to sit next to the wall the wait staff can't see you from the bar and you don't get great service. Tonight we were in and lots of parking out front, strangely enough, but full inside. But all of the lights were much brighter than usual. Too bright for our liking. Sat at the bar and bartender was friendly and got decent service initially, but, for the first time ever, our pizza was almost burnt on the bottom. Our server went to the kitchen and another girl finally came and cleaned our plates and presented the check. Then, even with 3 or 4 servers, it was some time before she came and took our payment. Then she and another female kibbitzed at the cash register for a few minutes, laughing, etc. while we sat and waited for her to return. We're used to getting excellent service from Kenny and generally good service from others...but tonight was a not great pizza and less than wonderful service. Usually you would deserve a 4*. See More

We used to love this place until the new owners took over. Now it is terrible. We ordered Veal sandwiches (which we got before) and they were hard as a rock and not even edible. When you call to or...der they can't understand a word you say and the phone line is horrible. It took 10 minutes just to place an order for delivery and it arrived wrong. Won't be ordering from them again. See More

I get food from here when we're working on our racecar right around the corner, the best pizza in town and great food, never been in the restaurant side so I can't comment on the service there but the... people on the take out side are phenomenal See More

Was there today for lunch. The service was wonderful and the pizza was fabulous! Was happy to hear they do catering as well! Will definitely be back!

One star is way too high a rating. Domenick couldn't pass a blood test or an IQ test and when you ask to speak to someone else you get a female that makes him look like a Harvard Scholar. Tried to large pizza with extra sausage, Dominick needed to know if I wanted cheese on it. I asked to speak to someone else and I got a female just as dumb as he is. She also asked if I wanted cheese. Has anyone ever heard of pizza without cheese. Maybe these two have been working at Chipotle but no Italian restaurant employee should be asking if you want cheese on your pizza. Will never call that number again. The new management is really pathetic. Probably last about a year with the help they have. They must be relatives. See More

My husband and I love Rivergate Tavern! They have the best pizza around. The bartenders add a nice, personal touch and treat you like old friends. We recommend this place to all of our friends and fam...ily that come to Cleveland! We just can't say enough great things about RGT! :) See More

The waitress was drunk then preceded to tell us she was high. The order we had to repeat multiple times because she was so out of it then the food delivered was not what we ordered. It was a nightmare... to say the least. We will NOT return. See More
