Riverview Café

Featuring clean, geometric lines and a long bank of windows facing the river, the first-floor Riverview Café is generously sized to accommodate everything from large seated dinners to expansive receptions. Evening events in this setting are dramatic: inside, blue neon softly illuminates the ceiling as guests mingle below; outside, dark lacings of tree boughs frame views of city lights dancing on the Charles.
