My husband had never been to Rioz and I chose to give him the experience on our date night. He really enjoyed everything.

They had COVID procedures in place, but many guests and some employees did not follow them. The female employee tending to the buffet had her mask below her nose while refilling dishes on the buffet. People getting food at the buffet were supposed to wear a mask, sanitize their hands, put on a pair of gloves, and take a new plate each time. I saw many people without masks or with masks below their noses or under their chins. I thought for sure an employee would say something to them, but they did not. Tables were spaced but the restaurant was extremely crowded and loud. Our server was great and the food was good, but after seeing so many people at the buffet without masks I did not want to eat possibly contaminated food. I do not feel as though I got my money’s worth with just one trip through the line. Very disappointing from a restaurant we used to love. I hope no one becomes ill due to their negligence.

t’s the best dining experience I’ve had. No stress. They aren’t rushing you out the door. I have never tasted one thing that wasn’t perfect. The bread the fruit everything is top notch. It’s not nearly as expensive as you might think. It’s surprisingly fair. Worth the 50 mile drive

Ordered drinks when we sat down that didnt arrive until we had all finished eating. Other than bread none of the sides ever made it to the table. No bananas, polenta, mashed potatoes, nothing. Worst service I have ever had at Rioz will never go back on a weekend night.

Due to COVID we had to purchase bottled water which was $5 dollars a bottle.. I wish she would’ve mentioned that. But everything else was good.

The staff did not let us know that even tho my husband paid for the salmon, ribs, and filet mignon, and lamb that he would have to ORDER it EACH TIME. The waitress took out orders but did not inform him of this and looked at him like he was crazy when he asked about it. THE REST OF THE FOOD WAS LUKE WARM AND DID NOT HAVE SEASONING.

Think Golden Corral with gauchos. Cheap cuts of meat, lousy salad bar, loud noise, and bright light.

One manager was extremely rude. Our plates stayed dirty on the table. Never given a fresh plate for our meat. New management, lots of disappointing events through the evening.

My experience was superb, first time dining at Rioz and not going to be the last, I was very impressed with the salad bar and all the steaks. Hostess greet us at first arrived and guide us to our table. Our server Sabrina did a impeccable job.. she offered the house cocktail ( Caipirinha) and we tried .. delicious!! Complements to the bartenders. At the end we tried desserts..Very good!!
You must try this place out!! Very worth for the price..
We will be back soon.. thank you!!

There was social distancing. All of the staff were wearing masks. There is hand sanitizer throughout the restaurant. They had all of our favorites except the fried bananas because of covid-19 they were not able to get the deliveries. Understandable. They had mashed potatoes on the salad bar made with real potatoes and the only thing I missed was the lobster bisque. If you're considering dining out this is the place to go if you enjoy having a little fun and you are a meat lover.

The food is always good however, the meats were not being rotated regularly and we sat for some time waiting for the next meat to be presented. We actually had to ask for some meat to be brought to the table and then they kept bringing chicken. Had to ask for steak, ribs, pineapple. It wasn’t busy. We made reservations for 3pm on Fathers Day. Waiters had on masks for COVID. They had hand sanitizer and gloves for the salad bar. The bar was not consistently monitored and guests went to the bar with the same plates without hand sanitizing.

The food was plentiful, but we had to ask our server twice for a few items. It also seemed like my date and I were forgotten because we had to wait 20+ minutes to pay our check.
