This place was great. Good customer service, friendly staff, great experience. I had the endless salad bar which still came with the pallet cleansers (potatoes, plantains, polenta, cheese) and the grilled pineapple. The grilled pineapple is AMAZING! Husband had the endless meat as well which he said was fantastic. We went with another couple who had an equally good time.... More

One price Brazilian steakhouse - $34.95. For this you get to help yourself to the salad bar and then gorge on meat. The waiters and waitresses continually walk around the retaurant with skewers of meat from which they will carve portions. There did not seem to be any end to there offering. I think they were quite surprised that we... More

Interesting place, they offer some excellent choices we haven't seen in other similar places. Sadly the wait staff seams to be a bit over tasked and somewhat slow. The gauchos were excellent.

We chose Rioz because we had a large group and knew they could accommodate us. The food, as always, was superb. The service was slightly less than I expected. Food service was OK, but drink service was quite slow. A little pricey, but it wasn't unexpected. Would come here again, just not sure if I'd come back with a large... More

Great food. Don't fill up on the salad bar, save the room for the meat. You've got to try the grilled pineapple. You must call ahead for reservations, do not just walk in!

This was our first time at a Brazilian steakhouse. From the moment we walked into the restaurant to the moment we left, the staff treated us like royalty. Our waiter was charming, knowledgeable, and attentive. Each of the gauchos who brought the meats and pineapple to the table was also charming and responsive to every question and request. Toward the... More

Had our Wounded Warrior dinner at Rioz tonight and was very impressed. The rustic decor creates a home like atmosphere with caterers moving all around you with food. They are quick to serve, pick up plates, and replenish drinks. We enjoyed our time here and would recommend this restaurant to others.
