Rio de Brazil
Food was good. A little pricey. Very nice atmosphere and great customer service
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.
Absolutely amazing!! Our dinner for 2 was perfect. Very nice staff, great service and great food. We are looking forward to our next dinner at Rio de Brazil. We also highly recommend it to others. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!!
Excellent service with very friendly staff. Food was delicious and brought out quickly, fresh and wonderful. Have already recommended to others and they have loved it too.
My wife and I came for our 46th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our evening! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxing and the service was fantastic’
Food was cold and old will not be back we had to keep asking for more
I really liked this place. I've been looking to go to Brazilian steakhouse for awhile.
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.
Everything was perfect for our 27th Anniversary. The servers were very attentive as well as our host. Our drinks never emptied.
Generous portion. Staff is friendly and very attentive. Great value.
Meat was good. Other food was outsourced food and not prepared at restaurant.
Solid meats! Chicken dry. House special was great.
Great for Johnson city tn.
I went early on a Saturday despite being small crowd food on salad bar was fresh and service just as energetic as if the place was full
Great flavor and they were quick to bring each meat to the table! The salad bar was kept super clean!
We have been to a few of these Brazilian steakhouses. This was by far the most flavorful. The service was excellent. Will be coming back.
Food was awesome I'm definitely coming back family friendly
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.
Don't let the exterior of this place fool you. No idea why they went with a sign that almost makes it seem like a daycare at first glance. Thankfully all of my doubts were alleviated upon entering. The inside is actually classy, the lighting is just right, and the staff are professional. Pretty much the kind of environment you'd expect from a Brazilian steakhouse, which is a good thing. It was fairly slow on a weekday - our server was also our gaucho. He was friendly yet professional, and asked how we wanted our meats cooked. The meat was cooked perfectly to our preference and were definitely the highlight of the whole experience. The flavors were impressive - better than some big city Brazilian steakhouses. The salad bar is decently sized and has some great choices like smoked salmon. They have a decent selection of wine as well. I wild highly recommend this place. My only suggestion to them would be to change the exterior sign to something better reflecting the more upscale interior. Their website's logo would be a good choice.
Great food and great service.
10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND. Exceptional location, food, service and overall great experience.
Very interesting concept and overall good food. It’s a little pricey so won’t be my “go-to” place.
It was absolutely incredible, and we’ll definitely be going back.
Great steaks and select meats. Amazing Salad bar selection
The food and service were very good. We will definitely be going back.
food was mediocre, salad bar nothin special, the 4 hot items horrible, rice really dry and hard, instant mashed , had to ask for the ribeye and sausages that were never offred, chx, pork were really dry, waiter no personality, at all!!! way!!! overpriced for sure, dont recommend, i was also disappointed they didnt have their signature flan as advertised, my anniversary dinne rnext year wont be this place, and the house beef i think the picanah, very chewy!!! awful, so disappointing , for our special anniversary dinner, 40 a person . they also charged 7 dls for each dessert and our coffee, on top of the 40 per person, unbelievable, only thing place looked clean. and the website made it look elegant but it wasnt . nothing special. they told us to wear mask and gloves at salad bar, people who spoke spanish that came in after us walked in no masks, and didnt use gloves for salad bar.
Wonderful/friendly staff! Service was excellent! I didn't understand why there wernt that many people there. We went on a Thursday. For the food, value and the staff, this place should be popping! We will definitely be back for sure!
First time visitor. The food and service were outstanding. Unique dining experience!
This place is great for people on Keto! Soo many options. Meats are all flavorful and tender.
Excellent service and food
Went at 11:30am on Saturday for lunch. We were the only ones in the restaurant for a while. Felt like we had a personal chef.
Salad bar to die for! Great variety of meats all good some excellent. I was worried because they weren't that busy,but it actually worked to our advantage. Before we left,I was planning our return.
We made a reservation for 6 for my son's birthday last weekend. When we arrived, they had our reservation in the computer, but did not have a table for us. They scrambled to seat us around a table in the middle of the room that was made to seat four. We repeatedly had to flag down wait staff to get beverages. On several occasions, the gauchos went to tables around us but didn't come to our table to offer meats. When it came time for dessert, no mention or recognition was made of my son's birthday, even though we had notified them ahead of time. Dishes from dinner were left piled on the table, and rather than clear them, when our dessert was brought, the dishes were just shoved into the already overcrowded center of the table so a dessert place could be squeezed in. This was our second time going. The first time was just my son and me, and we had a wonderful dinner. He wanted to return and bring the whole family for his birthday. We were embarrassed to have recommended this place to our family based on our more recent service. I doubt we'll return anytime soon. For the price ($40 / person plus drinks and dessert), we expected a much higher quality of service.
This was my second time eating at a Brazilian restaurant. The first time was at Hilton Head. It was so delicious that I couldn't wait to try this one, which is much closer to home. The service at Rio was good, but the food was ok in comparison to the Hilton Head restaurant. I was disappointed and probably won't be back. If I hadn't tried the other one prior, I would have been more satisfied. The price for the food was the same for both restaurants.
Food was very good and well presented. Next time i will get my meat more rare, the server asked me how i would like it and i said medium. The service was very polite and came by often to check on us. We went on a slow night and we enjoyed it that way.
Food was very good. Atmosphere not very upscale, but that was ok with us. Staff friendly. Would go back.
Food & service were amazing
The good: Hot and cold bars had great selection of items, and the drinks were tasty.
Cons: Servers completely ignored the red, no-service discs, which was kind of annoying. There was someone AT Our TABLE, offering us food, literally every 5 minutes. Too many interruptions. Filet was tough. Drinks were very expensive for Johnson City. Overall price was way too high for small town market and the atmosphere (old Pizza Inn with almost no remodeling) and constant interruptions.
Great food. Steaks are amazing. Service is very friendly and efficient. Unique experience. Come with a big appetite. Cost is a bit much.
Good food. Service could have been better - more attentive.
