Green means Yes! More meat, while Red means No, I"ve had enough. When you are ready for more, just flip it back to green and our servers will be happy to serve you more. A selection of traditional Brazilian desserts are also available to complete your experience at Rio.
We go here quite often as the outdoor roof top patio on Denman is fun. Their beef is medium rare usually but many servers don’t quite understand that many customers want this nice pink juicy meat and will try to cut are more well done portion. Same with the fat. Many people want the fat...it’s the most delicious part! We will keep going because...never ending meat on sticks!! What’s not to love?!
Excellent. Fantastic food and service. Great location. Salad bar great.
great service and great food, very enjoyable evening and have already recommended to my friends, will definitely return
I ordered dessert for the birthday but they didn't do anything. Actually, it happened again.
The food was good, but not AMAZING as the price charges for.
The first batch of meat was SO rare that I couldn’t even chew. I only drank a pop, and the total price JUST FOR ME was over $53.
It’s a good place to go and really fun environment in general, but the value definitely wasn’t $40 just to eat. The right value would be between $25-$30.
For this price there are many other places that are WAY better. Wouldn’t recommend to a friend.
We had a team lunch here. The team loved it. Will definitely come back.
Spent the afternoon on the patio in the sun drinking wine and eating meat-what could be better? The meats were moist the top sirloin was nice and med rare, the rump should be too but was still moist. The pork was juicy and tasty.
Amazing experience!!! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and the food is outstanding!
Took me back home! I loved the food, staff was sweet and brought us all the good food.
We visited Rio Brazilian Steakhouse as a group. As we went around 6pm, they were not quite that busy so the barbeques meats came rather quickly at the beginning. We pretty much ate all that we can in the first 30 minutes. The service staff were friendly and efficient. Some unfortunately did not understand English clearly. Hence the importance of using thr red/green coloured card to signal whether you want more food or not is important. This type of Brazilian barbeque was a first for most of our group. We all thought the experience was very good. We enjoyed the food quality and taste. We would recommend Rio Brazilian Steakhouse for anyone who has not enjoyed this unique cuisine experience.
Our server was rude. She was always giving us looks and when we asked the owner the same questions we asked our server, he had no problem doing them. I didn't like her attitude.
Great place, love the food .come hungry ,
Great food, great dancers, super service.
The card gimmick is unique and funny.
Will be back for sure
Sat down for 10 mins before I got up to ask for water. Waitress brought 1 water for our party of 4.
Everything was extremely salty and dry. Only good thing was those fried bananas and when we asked for more, they said the kitchen closed. (No one announced last call).
Overall a terrible experience on all counts. I would have donated the $180 to charity and skipped that meal had I known.
We visited Rio for my mom's birthday. We enjoyed all the different cuts of meat and our server was great! She brought us sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion - much appreciated!
I've been to similar restaurants and found the salad bar limited and no dessert bar seems weird. The meat was probably high quality but it was all super salty. The "large" $11 cocktails were actually just a regular drink with too much ice. Cost would have been ok if there were more options on the salad bar to constitute multiple trips.
Great service and food. Just arrive early since finding available street parking can be difficult.
The restaurant should include at least a simple dessert to the self-service menu. The fee just includes appetizer and main dish.
The meats were salty at times. They didn't serve bread when we were seated, we had to wait until a server came so we could ask.
Grilled pineapple was very good. Lamb was great except that it was salty. But overall we enjoyed the experience, it's great for the price and we'd probably go again as long as the price stays the same.
Very good food, not too fancy, lots to choose from. Above expectations, will come again for sure.
Really good food , excellent service and I would recommend this place to everyone
Not everything needs to be served cold. The entire restaurant had a bad fushy smell. Only the bbq pork ribs and the bottle of wine were good.
Very good food and service. The entertainment was very good as well. This is a experience, the cost is a bit high but as long as you are hungry it is a good night out. I wouldn't recommend this as a every day thing but for an event or special occasion it would be great.
It was good, but we arrived at 5:30, they were opening so they didn't have a lot of things ready. It was dinner but no bbq ribs yet not pão de queijo until the very end (almost 7 pm). We'll give it a second chance but arriving a little bit later. Suggestion to the restaurant: if you open at a certain hour, try to have everything ready or open later.
Overall this a great place for larger groups! The meat is not self-served, as staff bring around various types of meat throughout the night but felt the pace of serving was sufficient.
We had a good time. We enjoyed the food, drinks were good as well.
The overall experience was not that good. For the price charged the food offered is not good enough.
It was our first time here. We thoroughly enjoy the food and the entertainment.
The service was fantastic.
Great service and amazing food. Not so much the salad bar, but the meat quality,taste, and variety was great.
Delicious meats, music was a bit too loud during dances but was welcome with the live entertainment. Our server had trouble remembering requests for water and unnecessarily took away a place setting for someone who was late. Would definitely want to come again but $40 is steep.
A fun experience. Bring your appetite and leave the vegetarians home.
It's a nice place. The meats the offer are not a big deal but the salad bar and the ambience is great!
The meat was too little and there were times that servers skip our table.
Service was very good.
Salad bar was not first rate.
Food was incredibly salty.
Food was extremely poor. Steaks were too salty. Meats like Lamb took forever to come.
Steaks are yummm
AMAZING!!! Food was so good! We celebrated my husband's 45th Birthday with our kids and the environment was great, clean, and kid friendly!
Good 👍👍 Everything it’s ok 👍👍
Amazing food, great service and outstanding atmosphere
