The shellfish tower was fabulous!! The tomahawk ribeye was not as evenly cooked as I expected and I’ve had more tender pieces of wagyu beef but it was quite flavorful. The side dishes were more science projects than culinary creations.

The restaurant is elegant but not pretentious. The server was tremendous and very knowledgeable about the wines and the food.

Overall a very nice restaurant for a special occasion or an elegant date night.

From the moment we walked in, everyone was friendly and accommodating. Our server was knowledgeable about, not only the menu; but, the hotel and the island. Karin was friendly without being overbearing and her menu suggestions were spot on. We changed another reservation, in order to return here a second time during our week on Marco Island.

We were celebrating the 52nd Anniversary of our first date. The food was fantastic, each dish outstanding with unusual flavor combinations. Out server, Philomena, made wonderful suggestions. The chef has an outstanding mastery of flavors. We will definitely be back to have this outstanding experience again!

Went to Ario in November and the food was great. Went back in April and ordered the same meal a Tomahawk $120.00 steak and I was very disappointed. I asked for medium and it came out rare, sent it back and now it was very well done. My wife ordered the lobster dinner and it was not good. My sister-in-law ordered the special (sea bass) and could not eat it. Will not go back. The bill was over $400.00 dollars, definitely not worth it.

Love the atmosphere, the menu is horrible, not enough selection, putting popcorn ontop of the lobster is ridiculous. The black truffle on top of the mac and cheese is a turn off. The amish chicken floating in liquid ,once removed was so dry.

We were told it was rate no:1 in the area. Our wine selection and our first meal selections (ribs) were not available and we were lucky to have the last carpaccio of the night....
other than that food was delicious.

Food pairings were interesting (cohiba with yellow eyed beans) but bland. Dessert : strawberry shortcake “good humor ice cream bar” style with avocado ice cream?? Why?? Vanilla ice cream would have been perfect. Phil and Sue were great servers.

Our waiter spent too much time talking to us and other tables. He never asked if I wanted another drink until I flagged him down. Then it took so long to get the drink that dinner was served and he had forgot to order the wine we wanted with dinner. Service was POOR.

The steaks we ordered were extremely salty as were the sides.

We had eaten at Kurrents many times but I am not sure we will try Orio any time soon.

Very disappointing!!!!

It is such a pleasure to recommend Ario as a wonderful dining experience on Marco Island. We were guests at the hotel (JW Marriott) which has a fantastic staff of employees but once you enter Ario it's a completely elevated level of service. No detail is overlooked. They want you to have an epic dining experience. The quality of food is worth the price tag, delicious! Two people made our visit/meal/experience exceptional. Philomena, our server, was so gracious, friendly, and accommodating. She went above and beyond taking excellent care of us. Secondly, the restaurant manager, Michael Broughton who made more than one visit to our table to make sure we were enjoying our meal and being well taken care of really made our evening at Ario exceptional. 5 stars! Bravo! (Best dessert of ANY restaurant EVER!)

When we sat down they served us champagne, and after dinner, dessert, compliments the house.
