Food was great, once we actually got it. The server didn?t come by for about 15 minutes for our drinks and apps. Both were wrong. Same with our meal, did not get what we ordered and our server seemed like she didn?t want to serve us. Hopefully the next time we come back the service is better, but I felt very uncomfortable and forgotten about the whole time.

Expecting our usual dining experience at the Rialto, we decided to celebrate Mother?s Day early. Total disappointment this evening. When we got there, I was told there was a limited menu that evening because of an annual event being held in downtown. On the menu was a strip steak, I asked the server if I could get the filet mignon, however after asking the cook, only a ribeye was available. That?s fine ribeye is super. The server brought out the ?ribeye? and it turned out to be a piece of lukewarm ?prime rib?.Being in the hospitality field for over 25 years, I knew this was no ribeye. However I told my wife, if it is tender and taste good that?s okay. However the first thing I noticed was no marbling but plenty of connective silver tissue. I told the server the meat was terrible. She offered to ask the manager for a discount however I said I wasn?t looking for a free meal and that I would pay for it, I asked her to box it up and see if our pet would eat it. First of all I can?t believe a cook doesn?t know the difference between a ribeye steak and prime rib. The issue is not the service but the quality of the product being served to a customer. The positive thing was my wife?s shrimp and grits was good and so was the sweet tea. Another issue was when the check was presented, there was ?service charge? on the check. I asked the server when this started. Supposedly the staff was doing it because the local town event was having attendees who didn?t tip. I always tip a minimum of 20%. Therefore I am offended by a restaurant who puts service charges on a check without the customer?s permission. The service charge on the check was 15% therefore I told the server I would increase the gratuity to 20%. She graciously said she could take it off however I said it was okay because it wasn?t her fault because of the poor food quality. A gratuity is for a server who knows how to take care of the customer. Sorry, for the rambling, however your product did not meet my expectation and we won?t be back.

Vincent is an AWESOME person! He is very attentive, polite, full of joy and kindness. He set the atmosphere for the wonderful food! I had great fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. For my main course, I had a WONDERFUL Blackened Orange Roughy. My friend had an INCREDIBLE plate of shrimp and grits! Also, there was a very entertaining piano player!

Initially walking in, the building itself is rather unassuming. After you enter the double doors of the restaurant, the ambience changes. The layout of the main dining area is, in a word, elegant. The lighting and decorations set the mood well. Our attendant, Vincent, was quite the socially gifted individual, and extremely attentive throughout the entirety of our first experience visiting The Rialto. Although initially strangers to the establishment, my mother and I found ourselves very comfortable and at ease with the welcoming staff. As it was our first time, Vincent was thoughtful enough to offer samples to whatever drinks caught our attention. While there was an adequate selection of wines, I chose to opt for a cocktail. Followed by the 14oz ribeye with asparagus and whipped potatoes, and an order of tiramisu. Suffice to say there was a great deal of attention payed towards the presentation of every item ordered, both in the visual aspect and in taste. From here on my expectations are set for The Rialto, and I doubt they will fail to deliver upon my future visits.

Very nice dinning experience. Service was really good. (But not great) food was also very good but I have had better at top notch steak houses. Please do not let this review stop you from trying this place. My wife and I really enjoyed but for the price I had my expectations a bit too high.

We had my nephews birthday dinner here tonight and it was wonderful! Our waiter Vincent was exceptional! He went above and beyond to ensure that our experience was a good one. I highly recommend Rialto?s for your special occasion and if you?re lucky you?ll get Vincent!!

First visit and won?t be the last. We had a large party with a waiter who was new. He was EXCELLENT, knowledgeable, and very attentive. The crab cakes were amazing! The cream sauce was delicious. Our party ordered everything from JTs chicken, citrus chicken, blackened Orange roughy, the filet, the Cajun pasta, the Ribeye, to the special blackened blue strip. Everything was great. The taste, the temperature and the presentation. Let?s not forget the soup and crème brûlée! Delicious! The live music was great too. I was highly impressed with the whole experience!

My husband wanted to take me out to a nice dinner so I picked this place because we have never been here. We enjoyed every bit of our experience! We got lucky being seated with no reservations. Our waiter Vincent took great care of us! He gave us great recommendations and he wasn?t wrong! We started with the crab cake which was one of the best we?ve ever had! Husband had the shrimp and grits which was prepared differently than used to and he loved it! I had the Citrus Roasted Chicken and ate just about every bite! I loved the caper berry that was in it! I never had one like that in a meal! Presentation was amazing! So yummy! We were to full to have dessert so Vincent talked us into a to go one and went with the Sweet potato and Baileys cheesecake! And the live piano player made the night even more enjoyable! Vincent took the time to listen to how much we enjoyed our dinner and I mentioned my birthday so he brought out a brownie ala mode! Even full we ate every bite of that perfect brownie ? Thank you Vincent for a great night! We will be back!
