The Riviera's roots can be tracked back as far as 1926, when we first opened our doors to Long Island's elite. Known then as The Nassau Shores Country Club, it was designed by the renowned architect Grosvenor Atterbury, famous for his innovative approach to adopting traditional styles for modern times. In 1946, it was purchased by the current owners and turned into The Riviera as it's known today. The same gracious style and charming feel of the establishment was kept, while offering simple and elegant affairs.

As the Long Island population continued to grow, weddings became lavish events. Over the years we have made many updates, additions and changes to The Riviera; always keeping that same charm and beauty of the original establishment. Entering our fourth generation in the catering industry, we continue its tradition of excellence in service and quality for all of our clients to enjoy. We spare no expense on our food, service and surroundings. By planning a stress free harmonious event, our goals are to exceed our clients' expectations.
