Diner Reviews
  • "First time at Malios but it won't be the last. Our server Daniel was fantastic and the entire dining experience was one of the best I have had in Tampa. Great food, great service and they provided a birthday dessert on the house."

  • "Pretty upset that we could spend $60 per person, with only three glasses of wine, for what everyone agreed was a so-so meal. The killer came when I got home and only then found out that the waiter had already tagged a 20% gratuity onto our bill without telling us."

  • "Malio's is atop the food chain in regards to dining in Tampa Bay! I would give the service six stars if I could!!!"

  • "I have been to Malio's a number of times, usually downtown clients will want to go here. I have had great food here, and I have had bad food here... generally it is just slightly above average. Service never seems to be on par with other restaurants at this price point. They have the look and the menu, but I seem to always have a moderate experience."

  • "We were staying at a local hotel for a few days. Being unfamiliar with the area, we wanted a nice place for an anniversary night out. This fit that bill, but the noise level was a little high, even though it was a Tuesday night. The sound system was set up and talking across the table was difficult. The food and service however was very good. We did find the timing of the courses to be a little off, as the main course came about 10 minutes after the other courses were removed from the table. The drinks however, were very strong. We prefer to have two to three drinks over the evening, but were hardly able to finish the one. A properly mixed drink is more enjoyable and more profitable in the long run."

Our Server, Jared was just awesome! He definitely made our night perfect along with everything else! Thank you!! We will be back!"

  • "It was an average experience. First the valet set up was a disaster with rain storm, had pull up over the curb to be able to get out of the car and then step into 2-3 inches of water. The ambiance was flat at best, the service was not great. They brought us the wrong vegetable selections and took way to long to replace. We had high expectations because of the relationship to Ivarones but it fell short."

  • "Took my wife to Malio's for our 15th Anniversary. Service was excellent...staff knew of our anniversary and gave us congrats all night...very nice touch at end of meal they gave us a Creme Brulee with Happy Anniversary spelled out in chocolate. Prices on par with other top-named steak houses in Tampa, so although it was expensive (for my tastes), it would have cost us the same amount at these other restaurants. Only disappointment was that the outside patio was closed for a private event, so we could not enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the River...bummer for sure."

  • "Took a client here for lunch and everyone loved their meals. Grouper was outstanding although a bit pricey. Love all the classics like Shrimp Teresa, pasta with princess sauce and their out of this world bread and butter... Our client could not stop eating it. We also had a terrific server. We sat outside and had a little bit of the water view but very nice overall."

  • "Went to Malio's Prime with my wife for dinner, I had the Surf and Turf with the 8 oz. filet and it was the best steak I have had since I lived in Texas. Their midwest beef grower is a real gem."

  • "Typical restaurant along the lines of Capitol Grille or Flemings. Nothing bad but nothing great. Had a nice time and the food was all very good. Probably one of the nicer downtown options"

  • "Highly Recommend and wonderful service ! The lobster bisque was fab! And the Chateaubriand was superb . We'll I guess we will be regulars lol ;)"

  • "Ordered wine and they brought out a different vintage. I was not offered any consideration. A restaurant should not put down the vintage if they are not going to keep it up to date. "

  • "Service was good, Food was excellent highly recommend the prime rib it was fork tender and Not a fan of green beans but they were delicious. We went early before a show so it was not crowded and the food and the service were great. "

  • "My son just graduated UT and we have been to a couple of "other" steak houses in the city - by far we had the best steak and dinner at Malio's!!!! Our son loves his steak and has been to "a lot" of New York Steak Houses and he was always disappointed with the "other" steak houses in Tampa - but he was very pleased the other night and yet disappointed we only got to Malio's the last week of his stay in Tampa!!!!! disappointed in a "good way""

  • "We had dinner prior to attending a show at the Straz, We let our server know and he made sure every course was timely so that we could leave in time for our show. The tuna tartar was excellent and the steaks were perfect. Thank you for another great evening at Malio's"

  • "Loved it! Food and service were both fabulous. Will be back soon."

  • "Malios met expectations, but did not exceed. Bread was the highlight of the meal, soups were nothing special (tried both the Bisque and the French onion), cesar salads were marginal, Steak was cooked perfectly but was under-seasoned (Chateaubriand for 2), and dessert (Berries Malio) was good, but nothing really wowed us. for the price, Berns is a better option. The atmosphere at Malios is very loud & while most people respect the business casual dress code, the let the couple behind us stroll in with shorts & flip flops....go figure. probably wont dine here again, there are other better local steakhouses at the same price point. With 3 glasses of wine, dinner tab ran ~$140. Service was very good!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "They have made it seem that Malio's is such a high end restaurant. It was very loud, to the point that my wife and I couldn't hear each other talk. The appetizer was sub-par and the service wasn't that attentive. My main coarse was very good, but my wife's was just ok. We will not be returning to this restaurant."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food is very good here. Everything ordered was perfect. The noise was a bit much, it was really hard to have a conversation. Waiter was very good and attentive."

  • " , with reservation for 5, table was set for four, asked a couple of times for additional setting, and it was arranged. Then ordered wine, still only 4 glasses. "Sandy" our waitress was very nice, yet her speech was slurred. Did not come across as professional . It sounded impaired, she explained that she broke her toes on the stairs at Mailos stairwell, kept calling us," honey, baby, and sweety". always had to request something missing...missing spoon, wine glass, forgot side of potatoes, pepper for salad,....Sandy said to watch the plates...don't touch as they were hot, yet the plate wasn't nor was the food was barely warm. coffee was old, so black, cream couldn't lighten it.

  • "Table was given away; had to wait for another table. Service was slow, waitress had to serve tables upstairs and downstairs - not her fault. Quality of food was not what I would expect for over $ 100."

  • "The service was outstanding, and the ambiance was comfortable and romantic. The food was coursed out well and prepared to order. Our server assisted us in an excellent wine choice and was well attentative without being overbearing! I definitely have and will continue to dine here as well as recommend to friends and family. "

  • "This is the fifth time we have been to Malio's as my wife and I make it an occasion every time we go to Tampa to see my parents. We are not sure what happened with this visit. The reason why is that the food was okay and the service was not good-not sure if the service was understaffed or the server was bad. We got our salads about 25 minutes after we ordered. The bread came was delivered with the salads . My wife and I were not even done with the salads when our food arrived. I sent my prime rib back because it was overcooked and my wife's filet was okay. The bannana's foster we ordered took 35 minutes to get and the caramel was burnt. The table next to us did not even get their salads."

  • "My colleague, who is local, recommended we take our customer to Malios's. He assured me they never fail to please. I had requested a river view, but we were seated at a dark internal booth. The menu was uninspiring. Our customer tried to order veal, but they came back and said they were out and recommended the pork. He said ok, and ten minutes later, was told they were out. So he ordered steak. It took a very long time to get our meals. Probably due to the time needed to overlook the steaks so they were dry shoe leather. The waitress said he must have gotten the wrong steak and brought another. It also was overlooked. My fettuccine was not tasty. The waitress comped us the meals, which I appreciated. I felt badly for her and my colleague."

  • "Tables in some areas of the restaurant are much too close, constantly ducking trays being carried by wait staff. Pasta drowned in olive oil and champagne was flat....."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Ambiance is very nice. Staff is professional, solicitous and friendly. Food is high quality. For whatever reason, the pace of service was very, very slow: long wait in bringing out food orders; finished plates not removed; water glasses not refilled unless prompted; infrequent attention by staff. Not at all like past visits where the service was on par with the food."
