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!

Food was fantastic. Service was disappointing. Made reservations a week out via OpenTable, which is linked from their website. Arrived and was told they didn't have our reservation as OpenTable reservations weren't available at the moment, or they weren't accepting them - we were not provided a detailed explanation. However after the host/server walked away, we clearly saw our name and reservation (and my cell phone number which could have been used to contact me to tell me there was a problem...) there in their reservation book.
When I called this to the attention of the host/server, he didn't seem to care and snipped at us that our table was ready. In fairness, his priority was getting us a table, which it should have been, but I would have appreciated understanding what the problem was with our reservation, and there is definitely no reason to be hostile.
Ultimately they had a way of making us feel unwelcome - from our server walking away while we were asking questions (not deliberately, just not realizing we were talking), seeming unwilling to answer questions, having things cleared before we were done with them, and the issue with the reservation up front.
Because of this, while the food was fantastic (really some of the best ceviche I've ever had) - I don't really have any interest in returning.

The back wall has a gigantic mural of Machu Picchu and Rio de Janeiro, and that's what Rio's is all about: South American cuisine with a focus on Peru along with dishes from Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and other countries.

Diners all get an order of fried bread made with tapioca flour (gluten free, if that's your jam) served with chimichurri sauce and a jalapeño sauce that's the right combination of spicy and creamy.

For appetizers, we went with a tamale and an order of wontons stuffed with steak, tomato, and onions. Peruvian tamales are different than their Mexican counterparts, but are every bit as delicious. For the main course, we went with cerviche and breast of chicken rolled in panko, filled with asparagus, roasted red peppers, spinach and provolone cheese, that's topped with algrarrobina sauce. The cerviche comes with sweet potatoes and dried plantains, which are an excellent counterpart to the tang of the cerviche. The chicken is paired with a Peruvian fried rice that's similar to what you know, but deliciously different.

Dessert was churros filled with caramel and paired with a chocolate dipping sauce, also delicious. The cocktails we had we fine, but nothing special.

For two adults ordering appetizers, main course, cocktails, and dessert, we got out for $80 before tip. We deemed that an excellent value for the quality and amount of food we got. If you're a fan of South American cuisine or are looking to treat your taste buds to something different, give it a shot. It was absolutely excellent.

We recently returned from a trip to South America (Chile, Argentina and Brazil) and we were desperately searching for a Caipirinha to remind us of our trip...Rio did not disappoint. They actually made it better by preparing a premium version with Champagne.

Beyond the drinks the food was exceptional. We tried the Peruvian sampler, chicken and regular ceviche. We will be going back to explore and sample the rest of the menu.

Our waiter was Danny and he was great with explaining the menu and in preparing the drinks.

Honestly this has become one of our favorite restaurants, we only wish we new about it earlier.

Me and a date were staying at Eaglewood Resort up the road and ran into some complications with the dining there. So I hopped on OpenTable and found Rio's. Reviews looked strong and pictures painted a decent picture. Didn't do it justice!

This place had an elegant and interesting décor, mom-and-daughter live music combination (we were here on a Friday night - probably a weekend thing), and a very knowledgeable server!

We ordered one of the authentic Peruvian appetizer samplers and were delighted with the quality; powerful, contrasting flavors all around. We split the steak platter, which features a Skirt, Tenderloin, and New York Strip. Ordered medium rare on all three and they came out perfect. The skirt left a lot to be desired, but the NY Strip and Tenderloin were top notch. Not the greatest steak I've ever had, but a great complement to the experience.

Overall, if you're in the area, this is a solid choice. As a city guy, however, I wouldn't say this would be worth a drive; you could find comparable food experiences in the city. But for the suburban foodie, this would be a welcomed restaurant in the rotation!
