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.

We were having a celebration of life for a friend which we do every year. We have been in Florida and usually go to Brazilian steakhouse there. The food was delicious and if anyone goes away hungry from Rio de Brazil it’s there own fault. We will be back.

It was a quiet Wednesday evening and a wonderful dining experience. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The buffet was well organized and attractive. The grilled meat selection was plentiful and exciting. Everything tasted fantastic. We had a great evening and will return soon. I highly recommend this restaurant to all.

As I appreciate the restaurant being open and the staffs willingness to work on Christmas day we were just feeling so-so about our $109 dinner for two.

The ambience wasn't anything special nor was the salad bar area. We were underwhelmed.

The meat was ok. Parmesan chicken was way overcooked and dry as was the filet.
The lamb was absolutely perfect however and so was the garlic steak and the house steak,...

The mashed potato with gravy was tasty.
I ordered a extra cold dirty martini with blue cheese olive. What I got was a white creamy looking dirty martini with a cup of ice floating in it. I was to scared to drink it. I've never experienced a creamy white dirty martini with a ice chest floating in it. Smh. Ice cold means shake it a bit longer so it's colder....
Our service was good, I'll assume we didn't have just one server as it appeared they worked as a team. Only thing we didn't love was when we were done with our dirty plate it just sat on the tiny table until we flagged someone down to clear it.

Our experience wasn't bad but like I said we paid $109 plus a nice tip and we both felt we would of enjoyed waffle house more.

We have visited this restaurant several times and always been pleased.However, tonight we was so disappointed. They didn’t have their famous bread, bananas (kid’s favorite) and wasn’t even going to tell us until I asked. Then to make things worse, the steak was dry and almost burned to a crisp. Our server checked on us 2 times, and there was only one other table there besides us. The floors was also dangerously slippery, I think they cleaned them with pledge, because it was literally like walking on ice. I told our server and she kind of laughed it off and said it was because of the temperature. I used to always recommend this place, but after today, probably won’t be and won’t be returning.

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.

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.
