Meet Us


Opened in 1983 as a coastal counterpart to Mustard’s Grill and soon-to-be Fog City Diner, Rio Grill turned indie in 1988 and never looked back, winning numerous reader’s choice awards and inspiring food critics near and far.

We credit our success to a loyal and expert team; lead prep cooks Luís (28 years) and Eduardo (26 years), Bar Manager Cory Calder and Wine Manager, Gabe de la Vega.

Come often, stay late!

But be careful. As a frequent guest, you could wind up immortalized on the esteemed “Wall of Fame” near the bar.
