This is the third time I have tried a Brazilian steakhouse. Springfield, MO and ft. Lauderdale was the others. This one was ok, but drink glasses were never kept half full and the waters just bombarded you all at once... Good grief... Let us enjoy the salad bar and casually walk by! Probably won't be my choice in returning to columbia.

This was our second visit to Rioz in Columbia. Our first visit was in February. We enjoyed it so much, we chose to return, to celebrate our anniversary. Our second trip wasn't nearly as good. The meat was overcooked and tasteless, even though I asked each server for "medium". I left more on my plate than I ate. I guess the only positive thing I can say is the fried plantains and the grilled pineapple were delicious. I also enjoyed the blue cheese cole slaw. The food definitely was not worth what we paid. Unless you enjoy eating "well done, tasteless" meat, choose another restaurant. (There's a Texas Roadhouse right next door!)

Thank you for visiting us at Rioz Braziian Steakhouse and thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your experience. We were pleased to hear that this was your second visit to dine with us and it was also great to hear how much you enjoyed your first visit with us. Providing every guest we encounter with a consistently exceptional experience, that highlights our passion for delicious food and beverage, paired with equally impressive service and hospitality, is always our goal at Rioz. It is clear from your comments, however, that we failed to maintain that consistent approach in this most recent visit. There is no excuse for our failure to provide you with your desired temperature, nor is there is there any excuse for the lack of flavor in the cuts we served you. We do place tremendous value in the feedback we receive from our guests, and we will be reviewing your comments immediately with our team. We will not make any excuses for these mistakes, we will only promise to learn from them, while improving future guest experiences. We can only hope this most recent experience will not prevent you from dining with us again, as we know we can exceed your expectations if given another opportunity. We thank you again for joining us on both occasions and we greatly appreciate your feedback. Happy late anniversary and we hope to see you again soon.

We were recommended to go there but had the surprise to find out they are classified by DHEC as a "C" restaurant. We turned back as soon as we saw that C on the door!

Thank you for visiting us at Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse and thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your visit. It was very upsetting to hear that you did not feel comfortable dining with us upon arriving. We will not make any excuses for our inability to offer you an environment that made you feel safe to bring your family, but we did wish to let you know that despite receiving that initial low rating, we immediately corrected the several points that required attention, and within 48 hours we were reevaluated and given a perfect score from the department of health. We can completely understand your feelings regarding the safety of your family, but we would still love another opportunity to serve you and your family. Should you chose to dine with us again, please ask for our General Manager James Romano, and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding our operation and the tremendous amount of focus and priority we place in the safety and sanitation of our restaurants.

We liked the food , the meat was really good and I really like the the broiled pineapple ! The atmosphere is so,so not very cozy..
We found a table immediately and the service was good. Nothing special but it was next to our hotel so it was easy and good enough.

Prepare to leave with a light wallet! Price is not a problem when you have excellent food accompanied by great service. Though the food bar had a lot of international variety, it wasn't all fresh looking. The service was okay but was eventually saved when a waiter I had known from another restaurant came to the table. Hands down, he saved this from a not so good dining experience.
