We would be in the minority of diners, if we were to give the Rio Grill a bad review – it wouldn’t deserve it and that won’t be an issue here there’s no need to worry. We have been to the Rio Grill many times in the past few years. And, we always return for quality service, an wide-ranging menu, great wine and an overall great dining night out. It’s not high-end but who needs that - it wasn’t what we wanted. There is a certain expectation that makes us return – we know what we are going to get and look forward to it. Rio Grill is just a casual place to grab a bite, have some wine and a few laughs (no, it’s not the comedy store).… We have been all over the menu – quesadillas, burgers, different types of salad, chicken dishes. Everything on their dining menu is top rate – they never disappoint. Their ‘happy-hour’ has some tasty dishes as well – Crispy Calamari orange-sesame dipping sauce, Fire-Roasted Castroville Artichokes with Sun-dried Tomato Aioli, and their daily specials, which rotate and are always changing. On the “Tommy B Restaurant Rating Scale” from “A” to “F” the Rio Grill in Carmel gets a consistent “A”.
