Hey all, just wanted to give you another good review of RIOZ.
My very good friends are staying in my condo this week (yes Im jealous!)
They met and married in her native Brazil about 3 years ago. The husband is American but spent a lot of time in Brazil and now speaks fluent Portuguese. They have a six year old and a two year old.
Last night they ate at RIOZ and had to call us afterward to report that it was the best Brazilian food they have had in the US. This comes from a couple who live in NJ near a few cities that are very Brazilian with native food readily available.
Just thought Id let you know---they had a great time and I look forward to giving it a try myself!
Maybe this is a good spot for a meet-up?

We ate dinner at Rioz Oct 10th 2007. It was our first time there. I am glad we tried it, and it was interesting and very unique. They have a wonderful salad bar. We found stuff on there that we had never seen before, and it was interesting trying it. The meats were great also, but there was 6 of us, and someone always had their token turned to green. We felt we had no privacy at all. And you get the salad bar,and when you are done, they take your plate, and you then get meat. The only dish they serve with it is mashed potatoes(which I don't eat) We didn't get a drink or dessert. We drinked water. Since there were 6 of us, they tacked on an 18 percent gratuity. That meal cost us $90. I consider that expensive! Like I said, if you haven't been there, you should go because its quite an experience and worth that first trip. It isn't a place you'll return to over and over tho.

We three ate at Rioz last evening (Oct. 28) and had a lovely dinner. I agree the salad bar was wonderful and included steamed shrimp, mussels with scallops, smoked salmon wonderful cheeses and ham, asparagus, and on and on. The table service included the mashed potatoes, fried bananas and fried polenta sticks and warm, tiny raised rolls. These sides were replaced with new, warm ones...sometimes even before they were empty. We had a lovely meal. We all agreed the salad bar itself would be wonderful we're not sure we could pass on the meats.

The nature of the restaurant isn't condusive to private conversations (especially with a larger group) but we enjoyed it very much.

Even though it is a little expensive you have to look at the variety you get and if you take one of each or at least one of a good percentage of what they offer, you're getting your money's worth. Come hungry. If you're still hungry when it's time to leave, flip over the coaster and start eating again

I just checked out their website and saw tht 6 and under eat free!! That's a great deal, our son will be 6 when we go and DD is 4. My DH LOOOOVES the Brazilian steakhouse here in Cleveland and is such a meat-lover, he'd really enjoy going here I'm sure. Does anyone remember what the per-person price is? since the kids will be free, we can afford a bit more! Thanks!

our list of possible restaurants for August is growing.....

well, I think it's very similar to the one we have here, meaning there is a buffet, sort of a salad bar but more -with salads of course, other cold dishes, pastas, shrimp, etc. Then at the table you have a bread basket, fried bananas and potatoes (maybe something else) - I believe that was family-style in bowls at the table. For the meat, they come around with all different kinds on huge skewers! If you want some of that type, they push a piece (or several) off onto your plate. Tons of choices! You have a coaster that you have "up" on the table once you're ready for and until you're done getting meat, then you flip it over and they won't come around anymore. It's a fun experience and GREAT for meat lovers!

Well if all 6 people ate for a total of $90, then that really is reasonable to me. A typical calabash buffet would run $20+ per person.


For me personally, I would pay up to $50 for a good meal, but I tend to eat at places offer $10-$20 entrees.


I had heard these Brazilian Steakhouses charge about $40 per person, so if that is true, then your bill for 6 people would have been $240, if all 6 ate for $90, then you got a good deal.

We have 4 separate listing about Rio's in the Steak & Seafood forum. I don't know how to combine these all into one, and I'm sorry I didn't catch this sooner. I discovered it when I was trying to figure out the cost, which is not on their website. You can find all the posts here:
http://www.funbeaches.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=53

We have not been to Rio's. From what I hear from friends and neighbors, it is $35. for meat and salad bar, and you can order just the salad bar for $20. I don't know if desserts or drinks are included, nor do I know if you can have doggie bags to box up leftovers. If anyone has the answers, or if the prices I listed are wrong, I'd love to know.

We went last Feb. when they were runnning a half-price special. A LONG wait but worth it to save $$. We had caipirnhas (sp?) from the bar which were super and helped pass the time. Our table was at the bottom of the 'runway' and not the best location, as those called down and waiting, often leaned on the empty chairs at our table. The salad bar was very good, with some items not usually found on salad bars. The sushi was so-so. To me, the meats were rather salty, and we had to wait awhile for some of them, namely the bacon-wrapped chicken and sausage. The parmesan pork was an unusual but interesting combination. When we left, I felt like I had a meat hangover!!

My family is planning a 50th Anniversary celebration for my grandparents. Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse is at the top of the list for a family meal. I need to know how the seating is, as my grandmother is a very large lady that does not get around very well. A booth or tiny chairs would simply not accommodate her. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Also, if Rioz would not be a good choice for her comfort, any suggestions? Thank you.

Both my husband and I are AMPLY proportioned. I always avoid booths and wobbly little chairs.

Your grandmother should be comfortable; however, since almost everything other than the meats are on a buffet and the waiters are constantly walking through with the meats, you might consider having her sit were she won't be in a traffic lane. One trip to the buffet will give her an idea of anything she might want as seconds and I'm certain a loving family member would be willing to fetch for her.

This is the plan we use with me. Since I'm short and round, any tablecloth in my path is in jeopardy.

If you're there in season, it will be crowded and probably noisy. You might want to be sure she's seated in the center to be part of the family conversation rather than at the "head" of a long table where she could be out of the loop.

Have a wonderful time.

We ate at Rioz tonight and it was fabulous. $34.95 per adult and $17.95 for kids over 6. This includes the salad bar and all of the meat you can eat. This place is definitely not for vegetarians :roll: , luckily I am a carnivore :twisted: . Great selection on the salad bad and the wait staff were very attentive, especially with Eddie. Our bill was $140 before tip and included a bloody mary and three desserts.

I posted an overall review of restaurants we visited elsewhere on this board, but just to elaborate a bit about Rioz:

As I said before, I loved every bit of it. I tried almost every different cut of meat they offered (steaks, lamb). Large shrimp was offered also, along with table offerings of fried bananas, mashed potatoes. The salad bar had sushi (not my style, but it looked good), quail eggs, lox, many other unusual items. Yes, Rioz is pricey, but its also a unique experience. I enjoy cruising, and Rioz is the only land restaurant I've eaten at in years that reminded me of being served like I was on a cruise.

PS: the rest of my night mainly consisted of sitting in our hotel room acting like the old Alka Seltzer commercial ("I can't believe I ate the whole thing"), but I'd do it again in a second! I might have set a record for most meat consumed in one sitting!

Has anyone been to RIOZ lately? Since it looks as if my son may get to join us in MB this year after all :hello: I have promised to take him to Rioz. They do not list $$$ on their website and I was just curious is it a flat price per adult?

Last we went it was ~40.00 for adults (might have been 35)..... which included all the meats/sushi/salad bar. Sushi/salad bar alone was ~20. But that was a couple yrs ago....

Drinks are additional and coupons available for a free desert.
Enjoy !
