    We started off with some amazing custom cocktails that were as beautiful as they were tasty. The grilled artichoke was amazing and a perfect starter to the meal. All our our entrees were very well done and perfectly seasoned, I highly recommend the vegetable risotto. We finished by sharing three desserts and the blood orange cheesecake was especially loved by all.

    I've been going to Rio Grill since it opened, this was first time back since COVID. We had the halibut and the salmon dinners, both creative and tasty. Glad I made the trip.

    Rio GrillResponded 4 days agoHello Howard, Thank you for leaving us a 5 star review. Its great to have you back. Our slightly dusted pan seared Alaskan Halibut with Sauteed Swish Char topped with Beurre Rouge sauce is one of our new dishes so its great to hear you enjoyed both a classic dish and our new offerings. We hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful day.

    Rio GrillResponded on June 4, 2022Hi Ricky, I'm sorry to hear you did not enjoy Chef Luis' Paella. While it may not be a traditional paella found in Spain, we have gotten great feedback on this dish. It is disappointing to hear that it did not meet your expectations. We have a wide array of other items on our menu that I hope you try on your next visit. Thank you, Gabe de la Vega, General Manager

    Another Great Evening on 5/20 Made Reservations asked for ALANA. She Was Very Sweet and Helped Me Find an Inexpensive White Wine Also had s Diet Coke. Then I Ordered Your Pork Chop again It's Fantastic. For Dessert, I had the Bread Pudding. I asked ALANA If they Can Heat it up More so that The Apple and Pastry are Soft. The Pastry when Heated gets Dry and Hard to Eat.She Brought it the Way I Asked :) I also Had a Little Service Fun with ELBERT. I Spent much More Than My Budget but having a Bad Day I didn't care. Both Made My Night Enjoyable except for the LOUD MUSIC. I can Hear it From Dining Room nearby. It was still Too Loud. I will come back When I Hear Musicis is at a Lower volume Thanks

    Rio GrillResponded on May 22, 2022Hello Windos68, Thank you for your 5 star review! Alana, Elbert and Soriyah will be thrilled to hear about it.

    We are regulars to Rio Grill when in Carmel area. However, this time was not up to their standards nor our expectations. When the menu came, each item was priced $4 higher than in the Open Table menu. Our bill was therefore much higher than we had planned and we were embarrassed to our guests. No fair! Two entrees were very good, as expected, but my salmon and the paella were disappointments.

    Rio GrillResponded on May 31, 2022Hi, Thank you for bringing your experience to our attention. We work hard to ensure there is consistency in the presentation of our menus across all platforms, but if there were specific items that did not match please let us know so we can investigate. We encourage our guests to view menus directly from our website for the most accurate information and offerings. I will share your feedback on the food with our Chef so that we can ensure the best flavor and quality. Thank you, Gabe de la Vega

    Although the restaurant tables were empty other than 3 or 4 tables, we were not allowed to be seated because we were 14 minutes early. Also, I’ve been getting the penne prawn pasta for years and this time it was definitely different. Good, but not as good as it used to be.

    I’ve been going to Rio for the past few months. The food is great the service is fantastic tho I’m picky on that. My favorites are Alana and Elbert. It was Cassandra till she quit and went to another restaurant. Tonight I made reservations asked for either Alana or Elbert. I walk in and see Alana bartending usually she is serving. I sat at bar trying to see what to order. It was difficult since the live music was way too loud hard to think.I ordered the pork chop again. It was delicious as always. My older brother called and wanted to join me but declined because he hates going here when music is too loud. He has been going to Rio from the start. You have to talk loud to the bartender or your friends. Next time on nights of music I’ll dine way inside of dining room or wherever ALANA OR ELBERT station is

    Rio GrillResponded on May 20, 2022Hi, Thank you so much for fir the 5 star review. We appreciate your feedback on the music and will take that into consideration.

    So great the Chef put the Paella back on the Menu!! It’s amazing! The daily special quesadillas are always a good choice appetizer. Lots of choices, the skirt steak and pork chop entrees were delicious!! The bread pudding is the best on the Monterey Peninsula, made with sourdough bread, the sour and sweet is a great combination!! Always a nice experience!

    This use to be a wonderful brunch place, Not anymore. They only had four Brunch items on their Mothers Day Brunch. The rest was their regular lunch/Dinner menu. The four items all had the same theme, chorizo. I do not eat red meat and was wanting a brunch item. They kept offering me a salad. I will not write about every mess up that took place however they had to bring me three different meals because of their mistakes. The lack of communication between the staff is atrocious . When I recommended to the manager that they should put Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's on their Brunch menu he rolled his eye's at me and said "Thank's for the comment, I'll think about it."

    Another Great Dinner. I called to Make Reservations. I asked for ALANA She is Wonderful. Tho I get A Voicemail From Rio’s Sweetest Hostess SORAYA (May not be Spelled Right) She says ALANA working a Banquet. I call Direct and Asked if ELBERT another Great Server working. She says Yes. She Walks me to Table. ELBERT Comes Greets me with a Positive Smile. I order the Pork Chop Delicious as Always. He comes by to Make sure Everything is Great :). I joined a Friend that was already There. During Dinner ALANA comes to Our Table Gives Me a Big Sweet HUG. WOW !!! For Dessert I get The Bread Pudding. Thanks ELBERT, ALANA and SORAYA. Three Great people Too Bad Some Restaurants I to go don’t have Employees like those three. It was a BLAST fun of A dining Experience.

    Rio GrillResponded on May 7, 2022Hello Windos68, Wow! Thank you for such a wonderful review. Alana, Elbert and Soriyah will be thrilled to hear about it.

    A well established restaurant that is popular with locals and tourists. Food preparation was good and the service was attentive. Quality fresh ingredients used in our dinners and we enjoyed dining here. Very likely we will return on our next trip to Carmel.
