Rio De Brazil is a unique, all you can eat “Churrascaria” featuring a full salad bar with over 35 items, Brazilian hot dishes and a “parade” of different types of meats sliced at your table by our Gauchos.

Along with a full bar, we have a beautiful walk-in wine cellar with a fine selection of wines from Argentina, Chile, California and of course, our famous Caiphirinha cocktail.

    The food was good, nothing too crazy. We never spoke to our server after we got our seat. We would have ordered drinks but no one came to take our order. The bus staff never cleared our table when there was clearly empty plates when we got a desert. Lastly they automatically put a 20 percent tip on the bill.

    If your staffers are going to be trained to immediately offer water to customers ( Spring or Sparkling”), they should be made aware that it is NOT complementary. Too bad otherwise a terrific experience ruined by cheap tricks. I’m glad we didn’t fall for the “sample” of the house liquor too. Congratulations, for the profit you made off of two bottles of Italian bottled tap water, you lost a loyal, 20% tipper and lots of word of mouth advertising.

    Great food, great service, and a great experience. The price does make it something you probably can't do often, but as an occasional thing? It is worth every cent for the experience alone at the very least.

    We always enjoy eating here. A little pricy but good value for the money. They have just added Sunday brunch with a slightly more narrow array of meats at a lower price, which we will probably try. The staff is bothy efficient and friendly.
