First off, it's an old building that adds a lot of charm. Being old, it was freezing inside. The waitress even joked after I suggested a fire place saying the house might catch fire. They say their ribs are their specialty. Honestly, they tasted like ready cooked ribs bought at the grocery store. Nothing out of the ordinary. They also... More

Great ribs! Nice place, good service. As advertised the ribs were great. The wait staff was pleasant and it was quiet enough to have a conversation.

Friendly little place with good food and excellent service. The meat was done perfectly according to our order. Not many choices on the wine list but prices were reasonable. Waitresses were very nice and helpful. Would certainly come back next time we're in Saint Sauveur.

Awesome place to go with the family. We are a family of three. Our 12 year old loved the ribs so much, we went back to Le Rio twice after our first visit. The service is excellent and the food is fun and tasty. The ribs are a house favorite but the menu has enough variety.

A very nice quaint spot on the main street of Saint Sauveur. The ribs are most recommended. You can make reservations. The servers were lovely. Great for couple, family or friends.

I am happy to say we reserved, because the place was packed. We went the first weekend of December which also happens to be the xmas parade in Saint Sauveur. The parade was fabulous! Our meal just before the parade was just what we needed before standing outside for 2 hrs. We stuck with what we knew and again, the... More

Good food and service but the atmosphere was heavy and you felt the pressure of the next service. Nice decoration.

My husband and I chose this restaurant cause it was #1 on trip advisor. It did not disappoint!!! Best ribs we've had!!! And you can buy the sauce to bring home. Tiny, no frills restaurant. Great friendly staff. Can't wait to go back next time we are close by!
