    Klaudia treated us like we were the only ones there, super attentive without being over you. The food was excellent, although I've had better mussels (wink). I will try going for happy hour since the prices are very affordable!

    Very pricey for what you get. The blackened snapper was excellent but the portion size was small. The shrimp Theresa appetizer was good, but not as good as we recalled. The ahi tuna tartare appetizer was delicious. The 6 ounce prime filet was good, but not great and was medium rare when medium plus was ordered. The caesar salad was outstanding.

    A trip to Malio's has always been a rare treat, and they have never disappointed. I've visited many of the "best" restaurants in Tampa, and for my time and money, this remains at the very top of places I can enjoy for an intimate, mature, relaxing evening with my significant other. The service has always been top notch, and the servers do a fantastic job answering questions and when asked, making recommendations. The food has been above reproach, from steak to seafood, and everything in between. The atmosphere is lively - and while someone might say loud, I think it provides a big-city feel, and gives a couple the opportunity to really talk (i.e. not sit on your phones, vacant to one another) and not worry about the table next door hearing every word you say.

    A favorite spot for a sophisticated downtown lunch. The steak sandwich is the draw an the accompanying salad makes a great meal. Surprise, surprise, the martinis are always perfect. It is a very grown-up operation.

    I picked this place to celebrate my boyfriend's recent promotion at work. We were pleasantly surprised by the views even from indoor seating, however the atmosphere was loud and not the best for a date night. Our server was pleasant and mostly attentive, however he was very knowledgeable about the specials and the menu and made sure we got what we needed. My boyfriend got the Fresh Catch (red snapper) that was prepared very well and tasted amazing. I got the Scottish Salmon that was pretty good but it wasn't anything that couldn't have been made at home honestly. You don't get sides with your entrees unless you order them separately, so we shared a basket of homemade potato chips that were actually really good. Overall, we were pretty happy with our experience but wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a calm date night spot.

    We celebrated our anniversary with dinner here and WOW…. The food was absolutely off the charts amazing: Everything was absolutely divine. The cocktails were pure perfection. The silverware was spotless and the overall decor romantic, simple, yet elegant. Our server was phenomenal and helped make the whole experience even more special and did not rush us through our meal. This is no ordinary steakhouse… truly a first class experience. it is pricey but truthfully worth every penny. The only minor detail that bothered me was our table faced the wall. It was weird but we got over it quickly. They even through in a mini dessert for free because it was our anniversary…. It was too die for! A truly special experience!

    The fact that they read you specials which normally means it’s not as expensive or a better deal hence by the word “specials” and do not tell you the prices. They up sell, the manager was rude and insulted us as if we figment afford dinner.. We will not be coming back.

    We arrived at 7:30pm and that is happy hour on a Friday night so the bar was packed with loud yuppies but was not too bad. Subsided shortly after happy hour ended, which was nice to return to the proper sound level. Atmosphere is superb. We had the prime and Delmonico, both superb with the flavor of the filet among the best in the area. Delmonico was grilled to perfection and full of flavor. The sides (asparagus and broccoli) were amazing and the chocolate cake with a shot of Frangelico was a unique surprise. All of the above highly recommended. Service was good (believe they are understaffed as are most these days) but very attentive. This is one of the finest steak places in Tampa that does not make most lists but should. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting no compromise elegant dining, romantic (or professional) environment, and great location. The valet is tight due to space but they make it work and is an excellent way to access the restaurant.

    Great for a private business lunch or quiet date. White tablecloth and napkins set the stage for something special. Food is excellent as well as the service. I have been going here for years and have always had superior service. Soups and appetizers are fresh, steak salad or steak tips with a side salad are both mouth watering. Catch of the day looked great and my guest enjoyed it. Take a leisurely stroll along the Riverwalk when you are done.
