Rio's D'Sudamerica Ratings and Reviews
Food was authentic, being Peruvian it was good to taste Lomo Saltado that tasted like my uncle used to make, and Aguadito de Pollo that tasted exactly like my Abuelitas used to taste..made me tear up a little.
We were there at 130pm right after they opened and left around 3pm and no-one else came in so it was really quiet. Besides that our server was really nice and we enjoyed the food. Would recommend maybe for dinner, when the atmosphere would be more vibrant!
The restaurant had very few patrons that evening. We went at 6:30pm on a Sunday. The food was good and the server was pleasant. She gave us good recommendations and we enjoyed ourselves. The fact that the restaurant was so empty played in the back of my mind the whole time. Quite honestly, it should have had more people, because the food and ambiance warranted a healthier crowd.
It was pretty empty on a Sunday night. We got there 15 minutes early for an 8:00 reservation, which was good since the kitchen closed at 8:00. Open Table should tell you that. Anyway, we were seated immediately. Angela, our server was very helpful. Everything we ordered was delicious. We had the ceviche de camarones, empanadas, and two kinds of steak.
Arrived with party of 8 for Birthday celebration and individual serving us was excellent. For the most part everyone enjoyed their food but my rice was slightly burned which obviously changed the taste of the food. When server advised, their decision was not to replace my plate but rather make me new rice. At the conclusion of the meal and party received their take home boxes, a gentleman ask if he could take my plate away. I replied that I was still waiting for my rice and take home box. After 5 minutes [been waiting more than 20 min initially] gentleman places a bowl of rice in front of me . I could not eat the rice with my meal because that was mean was already cold . Additionally, still no take home box. Upon tasting the rice, party found it too salty. At end of day, poor service recovery execution. Pay a large bill, surely expect to be treated better than that. Found out at the end that the gentleman who made the call not to replace....the OWNER! Simply unbelievable.
With an increased price of $25 for Easter Sunday Brunch, we called ahead to be sure that dessert was included the brunch menu was expanded from the regular $16 brunch. We were assured that both were true. In fact, they were not. Also, a first for us, we were required to use paper plates for our $25 brunch. The food we had was excellent, but the negatives of the experience outweighed the positives. I am certain they could do better.
A Bucktown neighborhood gem with the added benefit of Peruvian/South American cuisine.
We followed our servers recommendation and ordered just enough food.
Appetizers were excellent especially the ceviche which you cannot miss at a Peruvian restaurant.
Pisco sours were exceptional.
This is one of the best-kept culinary secrets in Chicago. I've been enjoying the food of this establishment since the late 1990's (when it was Riconcito Sudamericano a few doors down just east of Damen), and the quality has has been consistently outstanding. Service was a bit off this time during an otherwise terrific dining experience. (Note to bar staff: It would be great if the peruvian pisco sours where made the way prior to the move to the current address. They were not only authentic but the best in town!)
