    $50 steak was just ok and they forgot the potato dish. Crab artichoke dip was bland. The grilled vegetables were mostly onions with a few slices of uninspired squash tossed in. The prawns were small and tasted like charcoal. Pleasant service and easy to get a reservation — but will not be going back.

    This restaurant was phenomenal in all areas! To begin, the interior decor was homie and beautiful. The minute we walked my eye caught the intriguing details on the walls. The service was impeccable. Our waitress, Brenda, was a total sweetheart and to our luck, we walked in during happy hour and live music! By far the best spontaneous date night! Lastly, the food was a 10/10! I highly recommend this restaurant for date night!

    I've been going to Rio Grill for many, many years. I hope this was just a glitch, the food was very disappointing. First, to be charged extra for plain bread and butter - ugh! My friend had the beet salad. There were very few beets, nuts, and cheese pieces - mostly greens with dressing. I had the special fish sandwich that was recommended by our server and sounded fantastic. It was lacking in flavor, so big with the brioche that it was impossible to eat like a sandwich. Fish was very bland. The bread pudding saved the day as it was wonderful, as always. Hoping it's better next time or we will be looking to go elsewhere.

    We eat here often as the outside area is pleasant, quiet and safe for Covid. The food and service is always good as well. We shared a very nice starter of calamari first and then I had salmon covered with pumpkin seeds which was very good. Others at the table enjoyed their meals as well. The only downside is that the glasses of wine have become quite expensive but this comes with inflation I guess. In all, it was good food in a nice outside setting with pleasant service and I would recommend the restaurant to others.

    Rio GrillResponded on July 30, 2022Hello Foody, Thank you for leaving us such a wonderful review. Our Pumpkin Seed Crusted Atlantic Salmon is a local favorite so were glad to hear you enjoyed it. We appreciate all the feedback you have given us. Have a wonderful day and we hope to see you soon.

    It has been several years since we stopped going to the Rio Grill but we heard new owners had taken over and thought we’d give it a try. The food was always OK but the service was usually poor. Unfortunately, last night was not a good experience and as a result we won’t be going back for awhile. I’m not that particular about restaurants, I know people are having a tough time but last night was really kind of embarrassing. Our appetizers were ready before our cocktails, and this being a Tuesday night, the bar was not busy at all. Our appetizers and entrées were delivered hot and on time. No one ever came back to ask how the food was or whether or not we’d like a glass of wine with dinner. Our server was a really nice guy and we could tell that he had way too many tables he was trying to take care of. I could go on but I won’t. We were just disappointed.

    Our tablecloth had a silver dollar sized stain on it right in front of my wife. Our ice cream sandwich was missing the mint leave and the candied walnuts. Small details maybe but we’ve been dining at RG since the 80’s and they’ve never missed the small details like this before.

    We are long time customers. Invited two out of town friends for early dinner Friday. Wonderful greeters and fast seating great in room with lots of space during Covid resurgence. But within 20 min people were seated all around us—too closely spaced to feel safe—and the room was so noisy we couldn’t converse. We left early, before dessert and second glass of wine. Food great as usual but too noisy to be pleasant.

    Rio GrillResponded on July 27, 2022Hi Carol, I apologize you had a less than satisfactory visit. We take the safety of our guests and staff seriously and continue to follow safety guidelines and practices in accordance with Monterey County. Sorry to hear that the noise level of the restaurant was higher than you would have liked. We do still have our wonderful al fresco patio dining space that may offer you more comfort for future visits.

    Been to this institutional Carmel spot too many times to count and almost always order the smoked chicken and glazed pork belly. This time we ordered the walnut smoked ribs along with the usuals. The ribs were a total disappointment. Tough and drowned in an uninspired barbecue sauce that tasted like it came from a jar. Clearly not boiled ribs, but these were just nowhere near anything resembling delicious smoked ribs. In the end, we fought to pull the meat off the bones, rinsed off the terrible sugar sauce and gave it to our dog, who commented they were just OK (JK). The chicken, for the first time was also disappointing. It was under cooked and tough as well. This dish has been on the menu here since they opened (20+years if I’m not mistaken). Really bummed that such a consistent standard fell off track. Still love the place and I’m sure we will return but management needs to know- improve or remove the ribs from the menu and don’t serve sub standard offerings. Whoever manned the smoker and served our chicken, needs a good talking to.

    Rio GrillResponded on July 16, 2022Hi, It is disappointing to hear that we missed the mark on two classic dishes. I will share your feedback with our culinary team to ensure we are executing these dishes consistently. And though that does not change your experience please know that our commitment to offering high quality cuisine is sincere. I have sent you a private message to learn more.

    It was the first time I’ve seen Rio so slow.. We were seated right away.. The server took awhile to come over and acknowledge us.. took awhile to get our waters.. I felt like if we didn’t order our drinks AND our food we’d be there all day.. Food was very good.. but overpriced.. Probably will think again before I return..I’ve been in the hospitality industry all my life..

    Service from our waiter was prompt and very friendly. Food was quite good, except for too much pepper on my pasta prawns. Building acoustics are very poor as we had to listen to a lot of laughing from some people in another room. While we knew that this restaurant was admittedly pricey, we were disappointed that the menus showed no prices on any of the entrees or beverages. Our two simple dishes and small glasses of wine ($13 each), plus minimum tip totaled just under $100. Can't justify this very often.
