Rancho Mirage restaurant to re-open on July 7th with their award-winning delicious food, great drinks, smiling service, and fun!

Join us on the new Pazza Terrace for terrific sharable plates and creative cocktails, brunch and dinner!

Acqua California Bistro is welcoming guests back to its beautiful, shaded outdoor Pazza Terrace and lively indoor dining rooms  along The River’s signature waterfront beginning on Wednesday, July 7, when the restaurant re-opens for Weekend Brunch and Dinner after a 15 month “Covid break”.

“We’re thrilled to be back at The River,” said Jerry Keller, creator of Acqua California Bistro.  “We’ve missed serving our longtime and loyal guests during this difficult time, but we’re back with an award-winning weekend brunch and superb dinner menu served in this beautiful waterfront setting.”


Acqua will open with summer hours serving brunch on weekends and dinner 7 nights a week. To welcome everyone back, Acqua will re-open with 3-course $19.99 summer dinner specials served from 4-6pm, Monday-Friday, featuring a choice of linguine checca, chicken picatta, signature meatloaf, or fresh Atlantic salmon with soup or salad and dessert.  Or, another SUPER SPECIAL…A glass of house wine instead of dessert!

Acqua’s idyllic, misted and cooled Pazza Terrace offers amazing waterfront and mountain views and sets a welcoming, relaxed tone for outdoor dining. The new comfortable lounge-style seating and a delicious sharable plates menu make the Pazza Terrace the ideal place to sit and enjoy Acqua’s delicious food and cocktails.   The indoor Pazza Lounge is the cool, new area to meet friends, grab a bite and sip a cocktail while viewing the sun setting through large windows overlooking the water.

Acqua California Bistro’s upbeat, friendly and professional staff brings energy and excitement to The River.  From the festive, fun décor to the meticulous choice of incredible dishes on the menu, everything at Acqua is designed to provide guests with an unforgettable dining experience.
