Bit late on the 2011 review but they both count for the same rating. We have booked Rive Gauche for our NYE celebration twice and on both occasions have thoroughly enjoyed it. The food, champagne and full service and accommodation have been outstanding. We really do value this place and understand why it is so highly thought of. Thank you for helping us bring the new years in, in style and with such enjoyment. Great memories. Great drinks at the bar too. We'd come more often if we were allowed to bring our dog (dachshund).
