Rio Rodizio - Union
Great place!!!Great experience, lovely atmosphere, the salad bar is amazing and has lots of choices. The waiters bring you seconds of whatever meat you want. It gets pretty loud and tight between the tables, but the food is worth it15/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeRio is great for couples or groups of people who want to have a nice dinner. Sushi is great but the rodizio a lil bit on the salty side. Service is good but i expected better. Overall this place is great for wining and dining!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place decent priceI would have given them higher marks for food, but I like my meats on the medium rare side and most of their were well done. the sushi was amazing though, give them 5 stars for the sushi 3 stars for the rodizio, I would be back for the rodizio again if I knew that I could getthe meats not so over cooked. I just moved up here from Florida and there was a rodizio place by my house andI was a 6 or 7 time a month regular, Iwould love to find one up here, that could be my new regular spot. this place was pretty good, the food was seasoned perfectly, like I said my only complaint was that some of the meat was over cooked, the flank steak andthe beef ribs were awesome though.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for dinner!I went to Rio Rodizio for my husband's birthday. The hostess Ashley was really accommodating and friendly. The atmosphere was great, with music playing in the background. The food selection was more than expected! The server warned us not to eat too much from the buffet because there were over 15 choices of meat to try. He was right! The food was tasty and plenty. I will definitely go back again. We had a great time!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice overall experienceIt was a good overall experience. Nothing that really impressed me but it was good. I would dine there again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is always a pleasure toIt is always a pleasure to eat at this place! The food is great and so is the service!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI found the food to be okay.I found the food to be okay. it wasn't all that great. I've been to other places that serve rodizio and I find them to be a little bit more tastier then this place. Many of the meats being served lacked flavor.
The bananas were not served fresh. Also the Sangria lacked flavor. It almost tasted like juice.They were sitting in a bowl full of grease in the buffet area.
I have to say the ambiance and service was very good. Don't think this place was worth the drive for my husband nor I.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat rodizio, romantic,The rodizio was better than most places in Newark , it was not over salted like most places in Newark, and the selection of meat was great. Will defiantly go again. One thing I did not like is having gratulity of 15% added to the check for a party of 4. It' was an insult. People do know how to tip these days.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNewbie Tries RodizioI had passed by rio rodizio many times and wanted to try it. Three of us had dinner there on Thursday. We enjoyed the extensive salad bar, the experience, quality and taste of the skewered meat and the sangria very much. The only suggestion I have for improving the experience is to have a bit more initial orientation of how the process works to best enjoy the experience.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
