Because we didn't know the area, we picked this restaurant off Google Maps and through tripadvisor ratings. We met some friends for dinner while on a trip.

The place was crowded on a Saturday night, so we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. We thought that was quick. It was raining, so the fire pit outside was a nice touch.

Our server was prompt and attentive. The food came in good timing. And, the food was amazing. I had the crab cakes and prime rib. We could not make up our minds so two of us split our dinners with each other.

So, here are the inconveniences: 1) Finding a parking space was near to impossible. The restaurant is located in an upscale shopping district with no parking of its own. 2) I have to agree about the high prices that others have mentioned. and 3) The acoustics are terrible for holding conversations within your own party. We found ourselves having to raise our voices and repeat things often. I cannot imagine what people with slight hearing loss would go through.

Overall, we had a good experience. However, if I lived close to the restaurant, I do not think it would be on my list of regular places.

Rio's Boardwalk offers a nice walk and evening/day fire-pit @CopperCanyon. Several times we have enjoyed a meal here, although it may be a little pricey, its filling and very good!!!! We also enjoy the lake, and walking around after a dinner/lunch.
Of course its not your average eat out once a week,, however, what we like is the rotisserie chicken, veges, bacon cheese burger & fries, and sometimes dessert!!! :)

We eat here every time we stay at the Washingtonian Center. The food is always fabulous, as well as the service. Atmosphere is very nice, the music is a little loud, hard to have a dinner conversation, but that is my only complaint. They have outside seating available along the water front and an outside fire pit which adds to the ambiance. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Located in the Rio section of the Washington Rio Center in Gaithersburg. Prices are a bit high but the food is good. Wait times on weekends for dinner can be long (frustrating but a good indicator of its popularity).

Others have commented that it's too dark, but, that's part of its atmosphere...

We went into this place without looking at the menu and almost walked out when we did. The menu is somewhat limited in its selection and a bit pricey to boot. We settled on the Pot Pie ($15) and Salad with Chicken ($14) and both were really good, we would definitely go back. The restaurant has lots of outdoor seating that overlooks a small made lake, the path around the lake draws lots of foot traffic and makes for a good people watching experience.
