The bouncers think they are thugs and stare the patrons down. I was almost assaulted for being out front and looking at one. The little dude ran over to me swearing and trying to start a fight as another one from behind came on trying to enrage the situation. My business is risk management and these goons are a big time risk to the restaurant. I have heard several locals say the same thing though didnt think much about it. Good food, band and drinks but not worth dealing with the want to be gangster bouncers. This kid working for riras is out front starting problems. :) Be prepared to defend yourself if going to this place!
ASSAULTED BY MANAGER AT WEDDING RECEPTION!!!
I just need to bring to your attention what happened last night at the Wedding Reception.
My wife and I are vegan and did not have enough food to eat. So I went downstairs to Flatbreads and ordered a vegan pizza so we could eat.
Upon entering the wedding reception with my food, I was stopped and told that I couldn't bring the pizza in. After explaining our issue, the woman let me in.
Then, shortly after we began eating with our friends, the wedding reception lady came by to tell us we couldn't eat the pizza there.
As you can imagine, the entire table (including our non-vegan friends and family) were shocked. We weren't bothering anyone -- trying to enjoy our cousin's wedding. We had just spent $20 on a pizza so we could eat, and we were told that we weren't allowed to bring food in (that is, of course, except for the cake that was brought in, and the candy and gum that almost everyone brought in).
Then, the manager came over and literally took our pizza from my wife's hands. Beyond filing charges for assault, we will be filing as many complaints as we can to make sure nobody ever has to pay for a wedding reception where their guests are both assaulted and embarrassed.
If you think that you can do business like that, you are about to learn a hard lesson. You did this to the wrong people.
Big, fat leather couches, fireplaces roaring, drinks pouring, food with flair right on the waterfront watching the water taxis and other large watercraft go by. Hor d'oeuvres for us consisted of brie served in puff pastry astride a balsamic glaze. I had the Dublin Lawyer - lobster served in the shell with cream and herbs, seated atop zucchini seated atop white beans.
The people are extremely friendly. I think everyone that was working there said hello to me. The food is great, a bit pricey but well worth the price due to authentic Irish Cuisine. The atmosphere is great for going for a Romantic dinner or a night on the town with friends. I love Ri~Ra and absolutely Reccomend it to everyone!
I love the way that RiRa looks inside - lots of exposed wood and comfy furniture. I like the menu and love the atmosphere. Can't beat the view or the proximity to Casco Bay Lines. A fun place for a meal!
