We love Ario. This was our second visit. Everything about our experience was wonderful from the staff, to the overall ambience, room decor, smoked” Bourbon old-fashioned and the fabulous the wine selections.
We both enjoyed fillets that you could cut with your fork. We also enjoyed the lobster macaroni and cheese. The shrimp cocktail was fantastic with large fresh plum shrimp. I would highly recommend ordering the key lime pie dessert. I can assure you it’s unlike anyone you’ve ever had before.

Our waiter was Rob and he could not have done anything more to provide us with a wonderful dining experience.

I would highly recommend the Ario without hesitation and look forward to going back again in the near future.

Server was overbearing and loquacious. Heirloom tomato salad was good not great. Steaks were good but we’ve had better. Mushrooms were tasteless and bland. Music being played in what could be a fine restaurant was like an arcade.

Food was very good. We were a party of 5, everyone order something different and all raved about their meal. We did have one problem however, a $100.00 bottle of wine which we did not order or drink was added to bill. I caution everyone to check their bill carefully.

Kudos to Michael Broughton for creating an warm and inviting atmosphere! The food did not disappoint on any level. Scallop appetizer is a must. Dry Aged ribeye was cooked to perfection. The key lime desert was an unexpected delight. Our server Philomena was so well versed with her menu. She explained each and every detail of our selections. She was attentive and personable. A true professional. Ario is a gem not to be missed on Marco Island 🌴 Can’t wait to return!

EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE! Enzo took care of us on our Anniversary like we were family and guided us through the menu for a very enjoyable dinner. Filet was so tender and Key Lime Dessert is not to be missed! We liked our meal so much we went back and sat at a Kitchen bar seat to enjoy the action and food again.

Such a fantastic location, yet zero ability to enjoy the ocean view. This hotel has every advantage and yet the food continues to be mediocre and overpriced. We had a lovely evening with friends, the restaurant and food were fine, just not outstanding.

We were celebrating our 33 wedding anniversary and wanted to have a nice dinner where we would feel comfortable. Our server (unfortunately I can't remember his name) was amazing. He was personable, professional and fun. We felt his service was amazing. The food was very delicious, portion size was just right and the selection had enough variety to suit anyone's taste. Great place to enjoy a romantic evening with your significant other!

Ate here two nights ago and came back tonight. Requested Enzo for our waiter as he served us the previous trip. His smile and gratitude said it all.

He was honest in his recommendations, water glasses as well as wine glasses were always attended to.

Food was very good and the atmosphere was nice.

Managers worked the room nicely and never were an interruption.

I would come back even if I wasn’t staying at the hotel.

Hosting a business dinner is always a challenge to find the right balance between location, menu, wine list, atmosphere, etc. The food has to be right or nothing else matters. The food at ARIO is amazing! Our group ordered a wide variety of dishes and everyone was delighted and raved about their choice. Go to ARIO for a great meal, but beware that excellent food/wine comes at a price in Marco

Fantastic! Michael the restaurant manger and Vic, the assistant manager, were gracious, hospitable and warm. Made us feel at home as soon as we sat. We dined with our daughter, 5 months old, who presented a few challenges while we sat. The restaurant arranged for us to sit at the chef's table with full view of the kitchen. Chef Gerald's kitchen did not disappoint. Smoked Oyster Amuse and his riff on Tomato Caprese was exceptional. The tomato tuile made from tapioca pearls was great. The Local Catch with creamed corn was as good as advertised by Nancy. She was personable, funny and knowledgeable. We drank some great wines by the glass and the smoked Manhattan was delicious and uniquely presented with a glass box filled with smoke table side. My steak was cooked perfectly and our scallop appetizer was flavorful and focused. Overall, one of the best dining experience I have had anywhere and coming from a fellow Chef that is high praise. The only downside is that we live in Sarasota and can't get down there for dinner on a regular basis. Thanks Aurio and team. Job well done!
