Ordered 3 filet done medium, they came well done, zero pink in the center or juice. Nancy, our server, was FANTASTIC & quickly remedied the situation and we received 3 delicious meals.

Dinner was decent, the appetizers were very bland and over priced. Atmosphere was nice. The filets and ribeyes we ordered were good but I considered them very overpriced. When I spend $500 on dinner for 4, I expect to leave thinking that was the best meal I've had. I would go somewhere else next time.

Ario has a beautiful high end ambiance. Food is delicious and very expensive. I had the octopus for appetizer and sea bass for entré they were both outstanding. My husband had the $60 steak and although the meat was very good I would have to critique se fact that it came with absolutely no side, not even a garnish, which I thought it was ridiculous given the fact you just paid $60 for a steak. My husband had the lobster bisque and it was very good too. I would definitely return and now that I know steak comes by itself on the plate I will order a side, which I didn’t notice before. Service was excellent. We were a family of 10 and had 3 different reservations, however, they accommodated us together in a private side towards the back of the restaurant and we were thrilled! Thank you so much for your professional attitude and customer service which was impeccable.

Not worth the price they charge for food. Salads are about the size of a peanut. They charge $15 for 3 grape tomatoes a slice of an onion and a tablespoon of burata. Got sat right next to entrance after being sat at a high top in middle of restaurant. Booked reservations a week before for anniversary and the staff could care less. We learned our lesson the hard way. I do not recommend this place at all.

The restaurant is beautiful and the staff outstanding. I ordered a specialty fish dish, while it was cooked to perfection the sauce was very salty. Other than that, it was an amazing dining experience.

Food was mediocre at best. Was expecting the food quality to be the same as a high end steak house, but was anything but.
Atmosphere was nice, but with the exception of the bread, the food was a disappointment. We had the steak and the sea bass.
Both lacked quality and flavor.
Very overpriced.

The food was amazing! I do want to shout out the restaurant for accommodating our varied dietary needs: two omnivores, one vegetarian, and a vegan. They strived to make the meal enjoyable. The only negative was that the restaurant is on the first floor, next to the pool area, and the noise level got louder and louder, but we would return if we are back in the area.

The food was great, beautiful restaurant and waitress was great. One of the best restaurants I’ve been in a while. But of course, there is always that one bad apple. The moment that I walked in I got completely ignored by the host (a young skinny kid with slick hair) who apparently only seemed to pay attention to my wife. When we go to the table he ran in in front of me to help her with her chair, at this point it was all good I guess it was just his job. Then the little dude decided to hit me with the menu, when I looked at him and went to stand up he quickly did the little sorry sir bs. He then left and I forgot about it when later on my wife expresses to me that she was starting to feel uncomfortable. We decided to ignore it and just have a good time. If my wife’s parents would not have been there the story would have been different. Killed my whole vibe.

Decent but very limited food choices. Very few seafood options. Very limited wine and cocktail menu. If it weren’t for Sara who offered to bring us a wine list from a different restaurant - we would have ended up with no wine.

We ate at Ario last month for our 6 month anniversary and decided to go back this past weekend for another quick getaway. I'm not sure how it's possible, but the food was even better than last time! They changed the octopus dish by adding chorizo which made it even more scrumptious. We had the lamb chops and the seabass again since it was so good last time and they certainly did not disappoint this time! The food came out super fast which was great and the service was top notch as always. We are looking forward to hopefully visiting again next month!

The staff and service is incredible! However the filets are so/so, they are tender but favorless. We needed to add butter and salt to enjoy it. At a price point of $52 a filet, steaks should come out flawless. Nothing else to complain about, didnt order apps. Dinner was so so but dessert was amazing especially their ferrero rocher ice cream which we ordered 3 bowls.
Restaurant should also update the furniture, the pillows on the booths are sunk in and tables dont line up and are different heights. We had to switch tables twice.

Steak house inside the JW Marriott. Pricey with a prosaic menu made for a 3-4 star experience. Service could have been better. When oyster selection was served, there was no introductory spiel as to which variety. Miso Sea bass was too salty & steaks were just ok. The lack of a wow effect when dishes were served took off the second star.
