Had a very enjoyable meal here - went with a vegetarian option and enjoyed the huge biscuit and honey butter in the bread basket. Our waiter John was hilarious!
Venue is dated. Service is okay not great. Food was mediocre at best. Would not recommend.
First time. Really nice,Will go for a breakfast next time.
A good meal, but not a great meal. Everything was cooked just a tad too much.
The service was excellent, great food and the room provided was quiet to allow business conversations.
My daughter and I went on Valentine's Day for an early dinner. This was our first time to go there. The food was delicious. I had the Salmon and my daughter had the filet. The filet was cooked perfectly. John, our waiter, was wonderful as well. I would definitely return here. It was such a nice surprise.
Breakfast buffet was really good.
Don’t pass up a chance to experience. A longtime great choice in the Westchase area.
Great Brunch, lots of variety. Big fireplace makes it very cosey.
Our 3rd year Brunch meeting with life long friends.
Been going to RR for years. Not impressed with the new menu items or increase in brunch price for special occasions. Otherwise, a great place.
Love the Brunch!! Great selection of food and custom omelets....
Whenever I'm in Westchase area I try to stop in and eat at Rio. Imma steak potato guy and Rio always gives me a great meal.
Buffet selection was limited and food was luke warm (at best).
I was truly disappointed in the Easter brunch! I made my reservations for my Family two weeks in advance so they knew we were coming. They sat us at a table in the middle of the room with Nothing on it all the other tables were decorated with salt pepper sauces etc. we sat at the table for 10 minutes nobody came to us we had no idea what to do or how to get started with the brunch. I had to go to the hostess and ask Twice before she finally went and found a waitress the waitress came and said she had no idea we were her table. I had to ask TwiceAagain if we could have salt and pepper and things just like all the other tables. I was very upset that I had to ask Four times for us to feel like we were welcome and wanted. Someone came over and somewhat tried to make up for it and say they wanted us happy so they brought us all Mimosa's even though none of us really wanted them. The first thing I got was an omelette and I guess because they had to go so fast the whole bottom part of my omelette was still half raw. For the price and excitement I had for my girls to be home from college and do this special for them and it not be special was so disappointing!!
We went for Easter brunch. We enjoyed the traditional breakfast items, plus made to order omletes. The prime ribs, mashed potatoes, ham, and much more was delicious. The only comment was the salmon was a little dry. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be!
Rio Ranch is our favorite go to Sunday Brunch place. It's always excellent.
This is the third time we've gone to this location for a special occasion Sunday brunch and we continue to have a positive experience! Family/kid friendly, great food and nice service. It has a real Texas ambiance!
We had an 11am reservation for Easter Brunch. When we got through the line to check-in, we discovered that someone had taken our table. The hostess/manager was doing his best to get the situation corrected, but we had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. We ended up being put in a corner (two tables being put together to accommodate our party of 5) and then having to search for the manager to let him know we had not been seen by a server after being seated for about 10-15 minutes.
We were disappointed this year by the buffet selections as well. Last year seemed to have a larger selection of items and did not seem to be as "chaotic" by everyone arriving at once. Based on the price of the buffet, we do not feel we got the same value as last year.
That being said, the manager did his best to make up for our bad experience with our table/reservation issue by comping our beverages and then taking 20% off our bill. This is the reason I'm giving a "fair" or "good" rating rather than a 1 star rating.
This was my father and his wife's first experience with Rio Ranch and their Sunday Brunch and unfortunately, it was not a great one.
Lunch menu is expensive for what Rio Ranch offers. What you would expect from an in-house hotel restaurant.
Enjoyed Sunday Brunch. The food was wonderful. The buffet area really needs a staff member to monitor and clean/wipe up the area for drips, fallen food, maintain better/neater serving utensils and utensil holders. The waiters were very good and love the crispy bacon!
I took my wife for brunch. I have to say the hostess looked overwhelmed. She said "Hi" and nothing else we stayed by the host stand for about 5 minutes till she point us and singed us to follow her, here when I said "I have reservation" very unprofessional hostess. On the the other hand our server was great very informative and the food was great.
Very good everyday meals. The value for the money is high. Service was excellent. We enjoyed the time there.
The food is always great, with very attentive service. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing, never rushed. Nice wines and delicious desserts!
Disappointing! Had been to Sunday brunch before and had been delighted with the food and variety. What has happened? Virtually every dish was cold and all six of us complained. The food would have been worthwhile if someone had bothered to keep it warm. The service was spotty. Arrived with a reservation, half the tables empty and the hostess took 15 minutes to work out how to seat six. Too bad. Used to be a fun brunch place.
enjoyed our time there. food is great. service excellent.
Have ameays loved Rio great place and fantastic staff
We had a Christmas gathering for a number of Senior Ladies so ordering took some time. The waitress was so pleasant and agreeable. We had several changes or additions which is difficult but everything came out perfect. The food was great and they had some take homes. Dessert was decadent and everyone enjoyed them. Definitely give them a visit!
We enjoyed the Sunday buffet. There was plenty of fresh cooked breakfast items. Yum yum.
We had Thanksgiving there and it was really super,
I go to Rio quite often when I'm in town. It's quiet has good steak and is in convenient location for me.
We went early afternoon and the food was fresh and plentiful. Great place we enjoyed.
Staff was attentive but reservation was not noticed somehow sp no table set up. People who got there ahead of me were seated at a temporary table which invovled waiting for large table to be set up. Food was quite good but service was slow. Staff very nice about letting us sit and visit.
Great food - cold, hot and fresh. Was enjoyable. We had a great time.
The waiter not attentive and had to wait extended periods of time to get anything we asked for.
We attended the Sunday Buffet. It was wonderful. We will go another Sunday.
Only two tables occupied. So quiet. Food only fair and seemed to take a long time for being the only ones in there.
Good fare, good service, and quick kitchen make Rio a great place for lunch. Under the radar location, means no fighting crowds. Get over the thought that this is just a hotel restaurant. Much better than you would think.
i'm not sure how this place stays open, as we were one of two tables in the restaurant. The steak was good, but their prices are steep and we have so many good steak places in Houston to choose from. Also, the Caesar salad had way too much dressing on it and there were fruit flies buzzing around our food. I won't go back.
We went to Rio Ranch on a Sunday for breakfast. The food was outstanding. It was 20% full. We definitely will go back at our first opportunity.
