    One of our favorites! Always an excellent experience. We split the Delmonico and added sides. Even splitting the steak it was way too much food for the two of us. They always seat us in an upper level booth, which feels more private than the tables.

    It was pouring rain and the valet’s had no umbrellas, so we got soaked. The waiter poured water on the floor while trying to take our order. Had to ask for bread. Prime rib was fatty and overcooked. We have dined here several times before, perhaps it was an off night, but probably won’t go back anytime soon. Sad…

    Ive wanted to dine at Malio’s for a very long time now. I grew up eating at Ivarone’s here in Tampa, which I believe is their cousins restaurant & also very good! I was not disappointed. The food was excellent and very tasteful! And the drinks were delicious! I was a little disappointed with the ambience though, I was hoping for a beautiful dinning area but it really looked like any other restaurant. But that will not stop me from going back, maybe I just need to sit in a different spot. The bar area looked a bit more interesting. The service was also excellent, no complaints there. They were very nice and attentive. The food and drinks were so great I’ll be going back for more very soon!

    I’ve ate at many high end steakhouses and for some reason my steak never gets cooked correctly. Therefore, this time I asked the server Katie what I should request to get a SLIGHT pink center. She stated Medium. So that’s what I ordered on my New York strip. The steak came RARE! It was beat red as I cut the into the center! I sent it back, came back as a re-fire and the seasoning taste was gone. This is just appalling. I feel I have to order a well done steak so the cooks feel better when they screw up. For a $60+ steak under cooked by 2 levels is ridiculous. I will never recommend this location. Thankfully the birthday girls steak came back medium rare, even though she too asked for a medium cook.

    Food was very tasty and service was great. I thought it was a bit overpriced. Very crowded and the atmosphere was not bad but nothing special when you consider it’s a “Prime” steak house with prime prices. I would still go back because overall I would give it 4 1/2 stars.

    We arrived for dinner with an indoor reservation. It was such. Nice night we were able to change to an outside table where it is much quieter. The service was amazing. We had multiple appetizers as the portions were plenty to be satisfied and also taste different things. Everything was delicious! This restaurant is located downtown so you pay for the ambiance and great food. It's expensive so just plan for that in your budget.

    I took my husband there for his birthday. I had the red pepper soup (delicious), Malio’s salad (delicious) and prime rib (very delicious). My husband had the French Onion soup, the wedge salad (both delicious) however his strip steak was kind of gristly and the French fries were under-cooked and soggy. You would think for the price EVERYTHING would be delicious. They did remove the FF’s from the bill. However, the bread is great (I’m a carb fan!). The ambiance and service was immaculate. Our server, Emiliano, was superb!

    We dined at Malio’s before Moulin Rouge at the Straz. We arrived early enough to enjoy our dinner without feeling rushed. It was not our first time at Malio’s- it has become one of our go-to spots for a nice steak dinner. All our steaks were cooked perfectly and had excellent flavor. Highly recommend the French Onion soup and the macaroni and cheese for sides. Our server, Courtney, was phenomenal!

    They knew I proposed to my fiancé before this dinner (girlfriend at the time), but still had to wait 35 min for our reserved table (which was totally fine with us (we’re easy going)), but then also didn’t get our complimentary dessert to surprise her as they told me they’d bring out for us. It was just a little disappointing for a $275 dinner to be honest. Food was phenomenal though.

    Our table was located in an odd area of the restaurant. Cheese board was okay. Steak was excellent. My seafood and pasta dish was buttery but good. We really liked the chocolate brownie dessert but were disappointed not to find any herbal tea selections to go with. Overall, very nice experience with attentive service.

    The food was all delicious. I had the crab cakes - which truly tasted like a Maryland crab cake. My husband had the prime rib and we shared the mac and cheese.

    I had never been here before, but I took my dad for his birthday last night and we absolutely loved it. Our server was fabulous and I feel terrible that I don’t remember his name. We had the filets and ordered the jalapeño corn and the homemade chips for sides. Everything was excellent, but I’ve never had anything like the jalapeño corn! Definitely try it out if you like a little bit of spice. The escargot was really great as well.

    Excellent dinner at Malios as always! Hubby and I shared an 8 oz filet and blackened sea bass. Both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. We had sautéed mushrooms and creamed spinach for sides. I preferred the mushrooms but both were tasty. We started with oysters and shrimp cocktail (super fresh seafood!) and Manhattan cocktails (delightful). We finished up with bananas foster for dessert- it was decadent and enough to share. Service was exceptional - very attentive but not intrusive. We always have dinner here before a show at the Straz and it never disappoints!

    Love the ambiance when you walk in. The lights at the table are low on the table and allows the room to look like you are in a speakeasy style restaurant. The food we on point. Sea bass, vegetable platter and crab cakes were 10/10.
