Like the new location. Parking is a tough to find at a decent price ... But food and service were great! Well worth the lunch time price!

As others have mentioned, they despicably do predatory pricing here and hope you don’t notice. The meat was also over salted and overcooked.

We enjoyed couples night. It took a while to get drinks, but they were good! The buffet was good... and the meat was delicious! The carvers were great! I would recommend going on Friday so you can see the dancers... but couples night was very economical!! Enjoy!

Our server was lovely and both unobtrusive and vigilant which is a big plus. The salad bar could use some work as well as labels for the food. I’ve definitely had better. Most of the meat that was brought around was very good, but a few were tough and chewy. Thankfully the good far outweighed the bad; More ribs, please! I would recommend it and go back as well. The entertainment was two lovely girls in Carnival outfits dancing for us. They were a great end to our night!

The service was fantastic and food was very good. I’m disappointed the new location of the restaurant does not have an elevator. It was difficult for my sister to get her baby stroller up the stairs on her own, but thankfully we could help her get it back down. I imagine the lack of accessibility must be a serious barrier for people with physical disabilities.

Peu de variété de viandes pour ce type de restaurant.
Buffet également assez pauvre.
Loin des références en la matière comme Texas de Brazil à MIAMI mais prix équivalent.

We go here quite often as the outdoor roof top patio on Denman is fun. Their beef is medium rare usually but many servers don’t quite understand that many customers want this nice pink juicy meat and will try to cut are more well done portion. Same with the fat. Many people want the fat...it’s the most delicious part! We will keep going because...never ending meat on sticks!! What’s not to love?!

The food was good, but not AMAZING as the price charges for.
The first batch of meat was SO rare that I couldn’t even chew. I only drank a pop, and the total price JUST FOR ME was over $53.
It’s a good place to go and really fun environment in general, but the value definitely wasn’t $40 just to eat. The right value would be between $25-$30.
For this price there are many other places that are WAY better. Wouldn’t recommend to a friend.

Spent the afternoon on the patio in the sun drinking wine and eating meat-what could be better? The meats were moist the top sirloin was nice and med rare, the rump should be too but was still moist. The pork was juicy and tasty.

We visited Rio Brazilian Steakhouse as a group. As we went around 6pm, they were not quite that busy so the barbeques meats came rather quickly at the beginning. We pretty much ate all that we can in the first 30 minutes. The service staff were friendly and efficient. Some unfortunately did not understand English clearly. Hence the importance of using thr red/green coloured card to signal whether you want more food or not is important. This type of Brazilian barbeque was a first for most of our group. We all thought the experience was very good. We enjoyed the food quality and taste. We would recommend Rio Brazilian Steakhouse for anyone who has not enjoyed this unique cuisine experience.

Our server was rude. She was always giving us looks and when we asked the owner the same questions we asked our server, he had no problem doing them. I didn't like her attitude.

Sat down for 10 mins before I got up to ask for water. Waitress brought 1 water for our party of 4.

Everything was extremely salty and dry. Only good thing was those fried bananas and when we asked for more, they said the kitchen closed. (No one announced last call).

Overall a terrible experience on all counts. I would have donated the $180 to charity and skipped that meal had I known.

We visited Rio for my mom's birthday. We enjoyed all the different cuts of meat and our server was great! She brought us sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion - much appreciated!

I've been to similar restaurants and found the salad bar limited and no dessert bar seems weird. The meat was probably high quality but it was all super salty. The "large" $11 cocktails were actually just a regular drink with too much ice. Cost would have been ok if there were more options on the salad bar to constitute multiple trips.

The restaurant should include at least a simple dessert to the self-service menu. The fee just includes appetizer and main dish.

The meats were salty at times. They didn't serve bread when we were seated, we had to wait until a server came so we could ask.

Grilled pineapple was very good. Lamb was great except that it was salty. But overall we enjoyed the experience, it's great for the price and we'd probably go again as long as the price stays the same.

Not everything needs to be served cold. The entire restaurant had a bad fushy smell. Only the bbq pork ribs and the bottle of wine were good.

Very good food and service. The entertainment was very good as well. This is a experience, the cost is a bit high but as long as you are hungry it is a good night out. I wouldn't recommend this as a every day thing but for an event or special occasion it would be great.
