The bar stools at the high top table were very uncomfortable! The food was not worth the price.

Very Underwhelming honestly. Salads were kinda of brown. Steaks were way overpriced for what came on the plate. The 12 oz prime rib was definitely awesome. Waiters were good. Just underwhelming for the price I paid for two of us.

Service was terrible it was as if the server forgot about us. She didn’t even take the time to really acknowledge us but she sure did make her presence know at all the other tables she was helping. The food wasn’t that good I wouldn’t return. Went in with high hopes but was treated poorly.

We had a wonderful meal as usual and great service. Such an enjoyable time down at the Riverwalk area with all the excitement of the Super Bowl. Always one of my favorite places to go out for dinner. The steaks Diane is amazing; these Seabass was great and the shrimp Diane is always my favorite.

My wife and I went to Malio’s for my birthday after a recommendation from a friend. It was amazing! The ambience set an awesome mood, and the food was sooo good! The Potatoes Malio are AN ABSOLUTE MUST! I don’t even understand how you can make mashed potatoes that good. We talked about them more than the steak!

They were short-staffed the night we went for my wife's birthday. Service and food were a little below their normally high standards. When I spoke with Manager, she apologized profusely and comped our meal. What a class act! Definitely will return.

We decided for our 40th anniversary to go all out and chose Malio's Prime. We are so glad we did. Our server Klaudio was fantastic, some how he was there just at the right time to take our orders or another glass of champagne. We started with the carpaccio which was awesome. Then we decided to split the cowboy ribeye, YUM, which was cooked perfectly, and ordered the sautéed mushrooms and Malio's mashed potatoes. To say the potatoes were delicious would be an understatement. I could have licked the bowl clean!! At the end of the meal we were served a wonderful piece of pistachio cheesecake with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate across the plate. Our only disappointment was the lobster escargot, it was good just not great. We will definitely go back.

Server was not clear on the menu being alcaart. Food overall was bland . I ordered the French onion soup was horrible. Manager was rude when I asked to take it off my bill she wanted me to explain what was wrong I simply did not like it . Will be eating at Berns next time way better food and service .

The Delmonico was superb. Could not decide on whether to have the caprese, French onion soup or the creamed corn ... so I got all 3. Overall a great experience. Based on my wife's meal, the pork chop was good not great and the creamed spinach was the best she's ever had. I am personally not a fan of spinach but I could eat Malio's creamed spinach and enjoy it.
Will definitely recommend Malio's as it was recommended to me ... with a gentle warning on the pricing for those who have not experienced the joys of dining at the highest end steak houses. Kudos to the staff for sure !!!!

I’ve been to many high end steakhouses but I wouldn’t consider this to be a high end steakhouse. The steak itself was OK. I ordered the Delmonico which was cooked close to perfect but the overall quality was not what I expected. Definitely not dry aged as advertised..the sides were ok as well.

We sat outside on a beautiful night for dinner after the end of our trip. Food and drinks were great along with the service. Tried many of the sides but the table favorite was the jalapeño cream corn. The outside area is pet friendly and even for the dog loves at the table we found the barking dogs at the large table next to us annoying for such of a high priced dinner
