    The side dishes were awful and grossly expensive. The steaks were tough, chewy and fatty. The mashed potatoes were like instant potatoes. The overall quality of the food was nowhere near the level to qualify for the expense. I have had much better meals at lesser restaurants . I don't mind the cost too much if the quality of the food lives up to the cost. The cost for the dinner for two was nearly $400.

    We arrive ten minutes early and the restaurant was fairly empty. We had to wait 20 min while all the tables got taken by those who walked in behind us. When we did get seated, it was in a semi booth type table and sunk way down and had to get a pillow to reach the table. The food is vastly overpriced. The presentation was poor. The bartender was wonderful but it could not make up for the disappointing experience. BTW no sunset view from this restaurant. They should remove that from their description. Valet parking is not complimentary as it is elsewhere in Naples. You have to get your ticket validated

    The food was really just ok and didn’t match the level of cost. My husbands steak came out and it was the wrong cut of meat which we sent back. The side dishes were fair. It was disappointing…

My foodie expectations are high so could be exceptional for others. The service however was excellent. Our server was very attentive and engaging. Overall a nice evening with the hubs.

    BAD OYSTER ALERT. I never take the time to leave a bad or good review but our experience at Ario was just terrible. I ordered 2 dozen of “fresh oysters” I noticed when we got them their color was a little too dark but I didn’t care and start having them. They were ok but by the third one when I put it in my mouth the most disgusting liquid came out and I immediately spit it out in my napkin. How GROSS! Never ever something like that happened to me before. We immediately called our server who was so sweet btw and asked to remove them from the table immediately and he did. My husband requested to remove them from our check and someone came to our table to tell us a funny story about the oyster were “fresh”. My husband said no sir that one was not but the manager said will not be removed and we paid for them. Really? The most expensive plate in the menu for a restaurant is an empty seat. I hope they learned that lesson. Never coming back! EVER!

    Unbelievable experience. We came down for our 30th anniversary and it well exceeded my expectations. Food was top notch . Top 5 meals I have ever eaten out. Enzo our server was the best. So friendly and accommodating. He brought us out a champagne toast on the house. And a special dessert. It is most definitely a night and a meal to remember. If I can rate the service higher than 5 stars I would.

    The service was surprisingly bad. Starting off with the valet (which is part of the JW Marriott). The waiter was not the best and the support was even worse. The food was ok but not for the prices. I expected better from a restaurant inside a JW Marriott.

    This is the second time we have dined here and we will come back. It is very conveniently located in the JW Marriott which were staying at and initially I thought a hotel restaurant would be just ok at best. We were pleasantly surprised that it was a top quality restaurant you could find in Miami, NY, Chicago or LA. The service is always excellent. Our server this time was very polite and knowledgeable. The service was flawless. They have a very decent wine selection, but not like many other top steakhouses. The NY Strip and the filet were a 8/10 and comparable to some other great steakhouses I have frequented. For sides, we had the mushrooms and the cauliflower. Both we EXCELLENT! My wife had the Dover sole which she says was OK, but not as good as she expected. For dessert my son had the chocolate gelato which he enjoyed very much. We had the apple tart with ice cream which was good, but not mind blowing. All in all, we always enjoy dining here and recommend it.
