I live in Massachusetts and for my husband’s birthday we went to New Jersey to spend the weekend and do somethings he wanted to do. I looked up Brazilian Churrascarias because my husband loves these types of restaurants and Rio Rodizio came up with pretty good reviews. When we got there, we did get seated right away because we had a reservation but no one came to get our drinks or welcome us to the restaurant. The variety of food was not that great and the food needed more flavor. The guys coming around with the meat kept skipping our table and only had like 4 different types of meat. It seemed very disorganized and I was really upset that I brought my husband here for his birthday. Overall the place looks nice and the waiter was nice but service needs improvement.
Slow service overpriced salad bar was very basic. ....would not repeat
Rodizio was excellent... The only thing I was a little disappointed in were the side dishes... Some were very dry and temperature wasn't consistent... Barely warm
Our server was amazing and everyone there made it a better experience. Definitely would go back!!!
If you are hungry and looking for a quick Rodizio fix go to Rio 22. The hot bar definitely is great but that is as far as I would go. The selection of meats are decent however the flavor misses the mark completely. The meats are gas cooked so if you are looking for authentic tasting Brazilian BBQ look else where. The meats are saturated in butter, garlic & salt which takes away from the meats. The chicken had a almost rubber texture which made me lose my appetite almost completely after the first round. This is probably due the way it was cooked via gas... My wife had the salmon and it came out with in 5 mins of the order which surprised the both of us, unfortunately the flavor was bland and the fish was dry which really didn't have any flavor. Pitcher of Sangria with Champagne (white) seemed to be really watered down with juice and had little to no alcohol. Ambiance however is very nice definitely recommend 1st date for apps or drinks. Definitely disappointed and will not be back.
Enjoyed fine dining on Valentines Day & I must say that we enjoyed every bit. Highly recommended 👍
Had tapas instead if the rodizio meat buffet and it was just as good. Very filling and good variety of food.
Low energy, uninterested and unnattractive wait staff. Poor service and lots of mistakes. Food average. Will definitely NOT go back.
There were long lengths of time between when the waiters would serve meat. They also served garlic bread instead of meat at times. Although they say they have over 20 types of meat, we only had about 8-10.
Very good food, really enjoyed the rodizio for lunch. The only thing is that my friend and I noticed that some servers we're staring and whispering. I don't know if that was personal or not but it was kinda unpleasant. We came for lunch and stayed a long time, but the place was empty so we didn't think we were bothering anyone. The rodizio and buffet were worth it. Good cocktail too.
This place was amazing. I came here for my 7th year anniversary and I’m happy I chose this spot. The staff was AMAZING and the ambiance was OUTSTANDING. Although it was kind of pricey it was worth it
Beer was warm when served, Food was good but our waiter was very inattentive, he was barely at our table but kept up with his other tables. The other servers bringing the meat around mostly walked past our table because 2 of our guests requested well done meats. It would have been better if the staff paid more attention
Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Lunch special gives you full buffet and rodizio for $23! Food was good and drinks were awesome. Can't complain at all.... good experience.
Farewell dinner for nanny
One of the best rodizios in the state. Food and service excellent and Better be hungry when u go there. Well with the drive. Definitely be back for an excellent meal!
Waitress was horrible. Was worrying about friends that worked at the restaurant and just got off at the next table instead of her regular tables. The sangria had no alcohol in it tasted like juice out of a container. Complained to waitress totally ignored us didn't even remove from bill. To expensive for the value of the food and service. Always passed by this place and wanted to try now that we did we will never try again. Horrible experience for the amount of money that was spent and horrible service. The guys that clean the tables were more friendly and helpful then our waitress. Hope tips are shared because they deserved it more then she did.
Greatest meat ever
Great service and ambience!
Great place ,good food, nice decore ,meat was fantastic ,definitely will recommend to many.
This is my third time here. My first experience was great. We were in a big group, service was amazing. Then the second time it was just me and my boyfriend and service was just not good. We asked 4 times where our drinks were and the Rodizio meats rarely came to us. Now this last time was the worst. I made a reservation weeks in advance for my boyfriend's 25th and was placed right on top of another couple to our right and a party of 8 to our left. It was extremely close and uncomfortable. Then we never got our cards that said feed me or stuffed, so the meat took forever until our waitress finally came back around ! I've spent so much money here and i was placed in the corner and felt terrible because I wanted to make my boyfriend's birthday special ! He was smushed and hungry. Dont think I'll give them anymore of my money after that experience. So sad :/
It took much too long for the Rodizio meats to come out, as well as too much delay time between serving. I guess they want you to fill up on the salad bar 1st to save on the amount of meat people will have room to consume.
The food is good but the buffet doesn't have that much option. It's quite at lunch time. It's not busy and you can get rodizio and buffet for less than $25. The desserts are good too.
Food was great we were there early 5 pm reservation it was not busy yet but the servers were there with food so fast we could not keep up that was great would definitely go ba k
Service is top notch, please adjust lower price. The meat was tasty and coming fast. Waiters friendly. Parking pretty on that day. Salad selection wide and table well set.
I truly enjoyed the place and the food. I will definitely be back and I highly recommend it.
My wife and I swung by for dinner and were blown away how great the food was. Even though the place a busy Saturday night atmosphere we still received our food and drinks in respectable time. We will definitely be back and bring our friends along. Possibly will host my company Xmas dinner here
We had a great night celebrating my husband's birthday with friends & family. Attentive staff & delicious food!
Found this place on a lark. Great decision! Food was good. Service was a little slower than other similar places, and we had to make several special requests to keep the "picanha" coming. But otherwise, the other meats were excellent and I'd definitely go back again!
Couldn’t have asked for a better meal on my birthday!
I had a great time here! The food was amazing! I have the service three stars because the waiter kept forgeting my drink and I had to wait like 45 minutes for it.
I took my friend Joy out for her birthday and she was pleasantly pleased, so much that she wanted to go back the following week. Lol 😆 we will be back.
Great ambiance, and food was good. Perfect place for a date. Went during Sunday lunch.
Having been to several different steakhouses,I thought Rio would be a nice addition. Unfortunately, this was not the case. There was plenty to dine on at the ample salad bar. However, the meal itself left a lot to be desired. Practically all of the food items were extremely overcooked and surprisingly under seasoned.
The food was great the service was ok, they were nice, but they weren't very attentive. There were long periods of waiting for someone to come around.
Great service, plenty of food. Little overpriced for the weekend though
Excellent experience. Wait staff was very attentive and provided knowledge of menu. Restaurant had soft lighting and great background music.
All was great but a bit salty on the meats . We were all saying the same thing . Great service nice little place . Thanks
Went there with my co-workers and we loved the food, the drinks and the attention. Our waiters did a great job, we had an awesome time!!! Will recommend to all my friends
AMAZING!! This was our first time and it is hands down our FAVORITE restaurant now! The staff from entering till leaving were 5 star!! The food was phenomenal, the price was great! I love the whole flip card for the rodizio!! You have done a great job and I can't wait to go back and eat there!
