Brazilian
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 experience was Meh. I have been to a similar Brazilian restaurant before which was amazing and although the food and service were okay it definitely did not meet my expectations. Good food but exceedingly average.

It was very expensive however it was our anniversary so we splurged. It was a good experience because I cld not have bought all the different meats for what we paid. I was able to try many things I would not normally get to. I would recommend trying.

The salad bar was okay. The meat was okay but not well seasoned. Also, they didn’t bring meat out frequently. My wife sat for a good 10 minutes with nothing on her plate. Twice someone came by and asked if we wanted anything specific and then nobody brought it. I’ve been to a Brazilian steakhouse many times. This was not the best experience.

Sunday's visit was the second only in dining at a Brazilian steakhouse (the other was in Everett, MA). This restaurant is on par with our first. Overall, the food was good, even though the salad bar could use a bit of improvement in selection and presentation. The service was excellent, both in efficiency and attitude. We will definitely return for another adventure into the wonderful world of Brazilian steakhouses1

A lot of great food. We decided to have lunch instead of dinner because of such a big meal. They had a few less meats but plenty of food. Service was great and the service was wonderful.

For the money, this place is WAY OVERPRICED! The food is mediocre at best. All meats tasted the same as they seemed to all be seasoned identical to each other. The chicken and bacon was good but dry (over cooked). The ambiance is better at a McDonald’s restaurant. Dropped $50/person and it was worth $15 each. We will not be back. Sad, I had great expectations.

The salad bar was good, but meats were very dry, no flavor and very expensive for quality. Spent good money when we could've went to Texas Roadhouse for a better experience

We had a wonderful experience at Rio Dr Brazil. The ambience was very nice, the music was excellent and not too loud, and the staff was wonderful! The salad bar was fresh and the selection was varied. Though I did not care for the filet mignon (overcooked,) the house special was outstanding as was the lamb.

The meat choices were great and you can get as much as you want. The salad bar was okay ( I prefer a few more salad toppings myself), but the do have a few hot items that were good. I do recommend it.....but it is a little pricey.

We were very surprised to find so few diners when we entered. However, the items on the salad bar were very fresh and cold. When it was time for the meat, it was also very fresh, hot, and juicy. The staff were attentive, but not over bearing. It was a great visit and we would recommend Rio de Brazil to anyone.

The first time we went, a month or so ago, it was some of the best food anywhere - it was great. This visit was not so good. Several of the meats were tough and the service was slow.

Not sure we will be back. At such a price, you expect better. If it was like the first visit, we would be back soon. Not so much after the second one yesterday.

We went for our anniversary. The food and service were both very good, but the atmosphere is lacking. The TV screens and set up of the buffet style of the hot and cold bars kept it from feeling like a nicer restaurant to fit the price tag for the evening.
