I've been there several times and have always had a good experience. The food is very good and something different for this area. I always recommend it. The only problem is service is sometimes a little slow. This has not been the case every time I've been there and should not stop anyone from going.

We came for a Christmas Eve dinner. The staff was exceptional. The food was on point. The steaks are insanely good. We may have to make this a new tradition!

Wow. Hesitated to try this one for years because we’re not familiar with South American food. Big mistake. The food was awesome. Fantastic flavors and food combinations. Plan to take friends and recommend to others.

Great service, nice ambiance. Recommend the Ceviche wraps and the empanada, delicious.

Tried the MILANESA A LA PROVENZANA, but it was too salty. The ARROZ CON MARISCOS was tasty and lots of seafood.

Recommend for special occasion with appetizer, entre, drink, coffee & dessert came out to be about $55 per person.

This restaurant was suggested as a meeting point by our friends from the north side. After looking at the menu online, we were intrigued. We certainly were not disappointed. Everything was delicious. We ordered the Peruvian Sampler appetizer with ceviche, tamale, chicken and potato. The little toast sticks for the table were very tasty with the chimichurri sauce. You will not be disappointed. All our entrees were wonderful !

Rio's is one of my favorite restaurants and the few places that I visit regularly. Their menu is full of creative cuisine and I have never had a disappointing meal. I highly recommend Rio's if you are a meat or seafood lover (and/or eat gluten free) because they have a lot of great options.

Outstanding experience. Our server, Tony, was friendly, helpful, and professional the entire night. He assisted with the wine and food selections. They were excellent. The food is great. Staff was top notch. We dined outside on a beautiful evening. It was our first visit to Rio's and we will be back.

The evening was a beautiful summers' evening. We got to sit outside. There was nobody in the restaurant at 7:15PM on a FRI evening. The wait staff was not very attentive and it took 15 minutes to get our drinks before dinner. The waitress was not all that familiar with the menu as we asked for suggestions. By 8:20PM we had our dinner. The Peruvian lasagna had the potential to be tasty as the flavors were complementary but unimaginative. My wife's noodle dish was also quite bland. The promised bread was forgotten. All of this would be understandable with a lower-rated restaurant (we used TripAdvisor and YELP) or one that had moderately-priced food, but not from a $20/plate average meal price. We live in the area and just will not go back.

It was our first time there we were celebrating our GF'S Bday it literally took 25 minutes for someone to acknowledge us After I asked a server if he knew who was servicing our table. Food is good but not the greatest. Live music was awesome though.. I would give this place another try but not on the top of the list of places to go back to!

This restaurant is a real gem and I am glad my wife and I decided to try it. The ambiance is nice and the south American dishes are awesome and unique in this area. The dishes are significant and I've never had the room to try dessert, but look forward to that sometime. Oh and the free fried bread appetizer is delicious!
