The Rivers Club was fabulous! We had our reception here and it couldn't have been better. Amanda Rapach was wonderful to work with. She was truly dedicated to making our day great and she was very responsive throughout our planning process. Amanda is a true professional and really make the planning easy. The food was great and so was the cake. The Rivers Club is a great venue!
"The Rivers Club is convenient for conducting meetings in downtown Pittsburgh. Kari and the service staff are easy to work with. The service is excellent and they have different size rooms to accommodate your needs. And the Health Club is an added addition."

"Whether we're hosting 180 people for a major seminar, or just 12 people for a team breakfast, the Private Events Team at the Rivers Club puts time and attention into every detail. We always know the food will be terrific, the room will be prepared to our specifications and there is always somebody available for any last-minute request (or, more likely, if I forget something). I enjoy working with Amanda because she thinks of everything. It's very easy for Schneider Downs to host our clients events at the Rivers Club - we know we are placing our clients in good hands and the event will exceed our expectations."
My husband Mike and I had our wedding reception at the Rivers Club on Saturday August 17, 2013 and every experience we and our families had there was truly amazing. When my mom and I first visited the Rivers Club and met Amanda, we immediately felt welcome and relaxed. Before our first visit at the Rivers Club was even over we both agreed we had found our reception venue.
Working with Amanda was wonderful; she is so organized and easy to work with. Amanda kept me on track throughout my entire wedding planning process and as our wedding date came near, she helped with every little detail. On our wedding day, our reception looked exactly the way we imagined it! In addition to Amanda, every staff member we met at the Rivers Club was kind and helpful.
Our guests also enjoyed the Rivers Club. We received many complements on the food, especially the hors d’oeuvres. Our wedding cake, which is included in the Rivers Club wedding package price, was delicious! Jennuine Cakes was also very easy to work with and did an amazing job with our beautiful wedding cake. Our guests raved about the taste and some even asked for a second piece!
My husband and our families are so greatly pleased with the Rivers Club and would recommend anyone to have a wedding reception or event there. Our reception was beautiful and a huge success thanks to Amanda and the entire Rivers Club staff. Thank you, Rivers Club!
"The Rivers Club is the perfect place for our board meetings. Not only because the location is convenient for our directors (some of them walk to the meetings because they work downtown), but also because the Rivers Club staff are so attentive and responsive to our needs. Not to mention the awesome breakfast buffet!"

I would give the Rivers Club a 6 in each of these categories if I could--- they did an excellent job ensuring that things went flawlessly on our wedding day, and we couldn't be happier with how things turned out!
We had the privilege of working with Kari. We met her once when we were touring the Rivers Club, and then the rest of our correspondence was via email as I was planning a Pittsburgh wedding from San Francisco. By the time the wedding week rolled around, I felt like Kari and I were great friends, as she was always very prompt, thorough, and honest in her responses as we made plans for the wedding.
Not only did she help us with obtaining some specific types of wines for our wedding, but she also ensured we had an air-conditioned room to put together the flower centerpieces the Friday before our Saturday wedding. While my parents and aunt were putting the centerpieces together, Kari and the Rivers Club staff were so accommodating to my family, ensuring that we had everything we needed. Later that day, when she realized I had made a bit of a goof with the seating chart, she promptly called me and she took care of my goof by printing off an additional table number so that I didn't have to worry about it.
On the day of the wedding it seemed as though everything went smoothly. The food was excellent, and the Rivers Club staff was also very nice and friendly. The Rivers Club did an amazing job laying out the cookie table--- and Kari even came over to let me know that it was done before people started to devour the cookies so that I could see it.
The cake was included in the wedding package, and my mom has said so many of our family friends have commented on how delicious it was. My husband and I are excited to eat the top of it, which Kari and her team had all packaged and chilled for us as we departed after the reception.
My husband and I, as well as our families, couldn't be more pleased with the Rivers Club. They were excellent!
