Diner Reviews
  • "Good food service was fair no one there to greet us for at least 5 minutes waiter was very slow even after we told him we had theater reservations had had to leave by a certain time"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Food was very tasty and the atmosphere was energetic with a good South American vibe. However, the service was well below average, which was very disappointing. My date and I were seated without a drink/wine list. My water was never refilled. Our waiter brought out the wrong kind of wine for my date and he seemed more interested in staring at my date than asking us how our food was, asking if we needed refills, etc. It also took about 15 minutes to ask for the check and then when I promptly placed my credit card there, it took another 15 minutes for our waiter to return. And no, the restaurant was NOT packed, I would only say about 2/3 full, if that."

  • "The food here is outstanding! Such a gem in the suburbs! This was our first visit. Two couples and all four of us want to come again. So many great choices on the menu it was hard to decide. First they bring a South American bread in strips with three types of condiments - all excellent. We had the Bon Bones for an appetizer. The meat was to die for - extremely tender. Our server - I forget his name, I'm terrible with names - was very helpful and patient. We LOVED this place!"

  • "My wife and I were delighted to find Rio among a suburban collection of usual suspect chain restaurants -- great Peruvian, Argentinian and Brazilian dishes and a very friendly staff. Also, a great bar."

  • "Waiter Chris was knowledgable, and food was wonderful. I totally recommend going tapas style with your loved one for a date night. Seafood ceviche Classico was amazing, we would go back just for that!"

  • "This place is easy to miss since it's tucked away in an upscale strip mall on Lake Street across Marcus Theaters. The food and service are excellent. I will be back to try the various items on the menu I did not get to eat during my first trip."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We really loved almost all of our dishes and the one dish with Mahi Mahi in a coconut sauce was replaced without question when we told them it was not to our liking. The dish they replaced it with was wonderful! Thank you for being so accommodating! Service was pretty good, but we did have to ask for bread and water!"

  • "We were looking for a good food and also nice place to go for dinner with a group of Friends on Saturday night in Addison. Thanks to Open Table membership I was able to find pretty new spot Rio's. Snow was falling down pretty hard but after we made it, we were rewarded by very friendly crew, our server needs some more time to learn how to open bottle of wine and then not to serve over people’s heads. But manager steps in and with smirch of humor took over. Food was absolutely delicious and portions are humongous. Only one minus will be noise, we had large group of people next to our table and they absolutely didn't care to come down a little, noise coming from that table was bad bad bad....... But we will go there again!!!"

  • "The first thing we saw when we entered Rio's was the bar. Behind the bar were about 6 people running around, bumping into each other. I comment to my wife that this place may need a "Bar Rescue". Ordered a Caprahina that seemed watered down, since the bartender rinsed the drink tin with soda in order to fill the large glass. My second drink was a Conquistador and they seemed to redeem themselves with that one. Everything that we had from the food menu was fantastic. There was some issues with the temperature of the food that came out. Some of the hot dishes were not very hot. Our waiter, though seeming nervous and inexperienced, was very attentive. Overall experience was very good, just a few service related issues."

  • "Rio's was recommended by friends and I was not disappointed. The cornish hen al fondo was outstanding."

  • "This is the third time we had dinner here. It is different for our area, nice, quiet and not the same food as other places."

  • "What a great place to wow that special someone! From start to finish. Rio's is an experience that everyone has to try at least one time."

  • "Great Peruvian/Latin cuisine. everything was delicious."

  • "We were a little nervous when my wife and I arrived last Friday eve with a friend and the place was pretty empty (usually a bad sign). Granted it was a little later in the eve but I have seen other places much busier at 8:00 PM. We finally ordered our food at 9:00 PM, in that we had given up waiting for another friend who was caught up at work. Please keep in mind I was so hungry my shoe would have tasted good! All three of us have traveled to South America on many medical missions and were very impressed with the quality of the food. The food seemed very authentic and was excellent in taste. We wish them continued success as to hopefully return many times (including with our workaholic friend from Good Sam). The service was great."

  • "I really enjoyed my meal at Rio. Food was outstanding as well as the service. Too bad I was the only person there. Great flavors you can't find at other places. They brought me some bread to start with three different sauces which were all wonderful. Next they brought out a tiny cup of soup for me to try which was also excellent. Really enjoyed Corte De Entraña Estilo Rio's as my entree. I was in town for business but I will go back for sure next time I am there."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "Finally had a babysitter and decided to go out in the neighborhood for a bite to eat. Went to Rio and was pleasantly surprised. New menu and great service. Had the South American stir fry and the wife had the Tierra y Mar. We both thoroughly enjoyed the night. Calamari was marginal at best. Tasted as if the Chef used frozen calamari and breaded it then fried it for us. Besides the calamari, don't pass Rio up."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "My husband and I are always looking for new places to try. Since neither one of us have ever had South American cuisine before we decided to give it a try. What a gem ! Staff was very attentive, food was very good and wine list was very reasonable. We will definitely be back to try other dishes."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "Been to Rio's several times and the food has always been the highlight with the service taking a distant second, until this time. The food was good as always, but we were pleasantly surprised that the service had finally gotten up to speed with the food. Our server Tony was attentive and knowledgeable, he helped to make this visit to Rio's one of our best."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "Loved the appetizers here! The food is very different from your usual night out to dinner. Loved the beef tournedos. Service was great. Entrees were also very good. We'll go back!"

  • "We were in town for a business meeting and were pleasantly surprised to find a unique restaurant like Rio's in the cornfields of surburbia! Dinner was great as was the service."
    Dined on 10/3/2013
  • "So my husband found this place using your app and boy did he find a good one. From the hostess, to the bartender, to our server, excellent service. Food was incredible. Do not let the location of being on Lake street in s strip mall fool you. Hidden gem."

  • "This place is a great alternative to the restaurants in the area. The atmosphere food and service take you to South America for the evening."
    Dined on 9/13/2013
  • "Many of the wines on the menu were out of stock and others not on the menu were offered instead at the same price. Our group of 7 were the only patrons in the restaurant between 5pm and 7:30. Service was very slow and there was no flexibility on the menu items. The portions were large. The dessert items were very bad. Ice cream that was melted and tasted like it was in a no frost freezer too long. The flan was like rubber!"
    Dined on 8/15/2013
  • "We stopped in at Rio's to try something new. The establishment has been open a few months now, and we wanted to try before there was a chance of closing, as many others in the area have! GLAD WE DID!! Food was great! Service (Chris) was great! It was overall on the high side ($$) for what we had, but not unheard of... would visit again, I hope the community gives them a chance! Parking in front of building is limited, but plenty in back."
    Dined on 7/27/2013
  • "The food was pretty good, nothing really special. My server wasn't able to pair wine with my meal so don't expect that. I really liked the decor of the place. My food was good, but I was hoping the flavor would jump from my beef tenderloin more than it did. The pita bread is excellent. It took a really long time for our food to arrive. I would go again."
    Dined on 7/19/2013
  • "Very interesting menu for food and drinks and the food was great. The service was excellent, but it did take an unusually long time for the entrée to come out. It was fine for us, we were visiting, but others might not like it. It was a wonderful evening though and I can highly recommend this place."
    Dined on 7/18/2013
  • "The food was amazing. Service was slow but the server was knowledgeable and friendly. Fyi there is no kids menu. We took a five year old with us and fortunately she eats a variety. The appetizers were perfect portions for her. Will definitely be back to try other menu items."
    Dined on 7/12/2013
  • "We were pleasantly surprised with the food. Everything we had was delicious especially the sauces they provided on the side chimmi churri etc. Unfortunately the service went from bad to worse after we ordered a second round of drinks. We ordered a vodka tonic and a Mojito (their signature drink), the v&t came after about 10 minutes and the Mojito took over 20 minutes. I should note that the servers was knowledgeable and very nice. I WILL however try this place again because the food was so good and I think they can fix the service issues with some training, at least I hope they can."

  • "I am not sure if this is an authentic fusion, but very nice place to try something different. Service good, but waiter needed to space courses better. Chicken tamale, exotic salad, rolled chicken dish and shrimp/scallop/steak kabobs were good. (Could have used a little more seafood on the kabob). Interesting vegetable/rice side. Fruit Mojitos made to sweetness request-strawberry/mint light sweetness-excellent. Desert flan a bit denser than the Greek/Mexican version...OK Outside dining was surprisingly nice, not a lot of car traffic in parking lot, so didn't seem to notice....restaurant also looked fun on the inside..."

  • "Went to Rio with my wife and another couple. We had a great time, the food was really good. We had a variety of dishes, from the won ton appetizer to skirt steak, the marinated duck and chicken rolled around asparagas. Everything tasted great, the wait-staff were helpful and the atmosphere was great, not too noisy, nor too quiet. We will definitely go again, and again..."
