Visited with 3 others, one night of a bus trip, and lucked out in choosing Le Rio. The food was very nice, served promptly, with attention to detail as we each had something different, and requested separate bills. The hosts were attentive without being intrusive, ensuring we had what we needed. Looking around the restaurant, which obviously caters to families... More

Probably one of my top five dining experiences in my life so far. Having lived in Baltimore MD and frequently visited DC restaurants, that's a big statement. The food was fantastic.

Well dilemma time in Saint Sauveur. Thank you Trip Advisor. We found easy street parking. Great summer evening for patio dinning. Greeted by friendly staff at the door and seated promptly. Had to go with Ribs and no disappointment. Just as advertised. Good simple food period. Service was quick and efficient. No lemonade was the only disappointment.

It was very busy for a Monday evening. The patio was very busy but inside was calmer. The ribs and steak were good and the waitresses are bilingual.

This place is probably the most welcoming restaurant in the area. This is no gastronomy but everything taste good. Frome Home-made soup to the dessert it taste good. But your reason number 1 to go there is for the ribs. ;)
