The food was authentic and tasty. I have been there twice recently and the taste of the food was not as consistent as at my first visit. They ran out of the main chicken entre. Still, it was good enough for me to give it another try, this time with a few friends.

The food is amazing - however every time we've been to Rio's the service has always been terrible. We would make this our once a week spot if the service was better because the food is always so good.

I've been to Rio's many times and have always enjoyed eating there with friends.

The food speaks for itself, great flavor, great taste.

The service finds the right balance of being attentive but not interruptive.

What a wonderful find! The menu is so diverse. We had the Wonton de pato duck bacon appetizer which everyone wanted more.
The entrees were amazing in flavor and portions were just right (Arroz con Mariscos, Pescado a la Macho and Parrillada Casera Steak). We were so full we could not have dessert.
The service was perfect and we never felt rushed. The drink menu looked interesting and want to try it on the next visit
Cannot wait to return to try the other items on the menu.

I'd absolutely recommend this place! I am a big fan of South American cuisine, as I have traveled and lived through Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru. Very delicious dishes, healthy portions. Very clean inside, warm and accommodating staff, and lovely decor. Had a really great time with my guest, first time we met and Rio's Addison helped cement together a thoroughly lovely experience. Take a chance on this place! I see myself returning to try more dishes.

The food here is amazing. We’ve been here numerous times and have never been disappointed with the food. However, the service is something they could definitely improve on. While waiting for our table, we decided to get a drink at the bar. I don’t think there was a dedicated bartender since it looked like the servers were making their own drinks. After about 10 minutes, the busboy asked if we were waiting on a table. We told him yes and we were wanting to get some drinks while waiting. He had to flag down a server to get our drink order. It just appeared that the servers were in their own world and that there wasn’t a manager on the floor. We will still come back for the amazing food, just hoping they get their staffing sorted out.

Rio's is one of our favorites. They have a great selection on the menu including vegetarian dishes and many unique South American specialties. We've tried many different dishes and have never been disappointed. The Ceviches are outstanding and they have the best chimichurri anywhere. We've been trying to copy it at home for a couple years now. The serving staff is also very good and we have always been thrilled with our experience here!

We had a confirmation # from Open table and restaurant did not have it. They sat us, we waited 20 mins and no one waited on us. Others came after us and got service. Asked what was up, was told no reservations we would have to still wait till a waiter was available. WE LEFT!!!!!!

Great spot to take friends to try something new and quiet enough to hold a conversation. The food was good. Empanadas were delicious. My dinner, a South American version of lasagna, was good but not delicious. My husband was disappointed that they no longer serve the chicken dish that he saw on the menu (I think it was a roasted half chicken). The churros we had for dessert were OK. The service was slow, but there was a big group that was monopolizing the bulk of the server's time. Certainly worth trying again. This was only our second time at this restaurant. The first experience was much better.

Great food with taste and seasoning of Peru that was wonderful. Extensive wine list favoring Chile that are worth trying as well. Homemade Flan for desert that is the best. Our server Danill was great and very helpful. Parking can be a challenge as this is in a strip with other businesses. Go anyway. Conversation friendly.

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.

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.
