Our server was new and she said two others would be assisting her. We never saw them but she was so attentive we never once had to look for her she was constantly checking on us. Provided excellent service. Malio’s for the win on that hire!
Food was outstanding never been disappointed here.
Great time as always!
The food was wonderful as always. The service and the ambiance was great. Will keep coming back.
The steak was the very best quality. Excellent cut! Everything was delicious! Waitstaff professional and courteous.
Good restaurant .
Daniel was our server, he was awesome. My girlfriend and I were just 2, and it appeared that Daniel also had 4-5 6 tops that he was serving as well. He was just as attentive to us as he was to them. Made great suggestions that we loved (wine and food). Would recommend Malio's to anyone looking to eat somewhere upscale in downtown Tampa. Will be returning soon
Never been to this restaurant and wasn’t disappointed. Loved the food and the ambiance.
Very nice! Thank you!
Absolute phenomenal experience at Malio's Prime. We ordered a ribeye, prime rib and a filet mignon and all were cooked perfectly. We also got salads, lobster mac and cheese, asparagus and crème brulee which again were all so flavorful. Our server (I believe was named Kevin) was the best part of the experience. He constantly tended to the table and made sure our drinks were filled and that we had everything we needed. This is a nice steakhouse, so the prices were what you would expect for this type of experience. Tables are a little close together in the space so the noise level is a little above average but we didn't mind that at all and felt it allowed us to talk to each other openly without having to feel 'hushed'. The fresh bread and wine list were also delicious! I would highly recommend this to anyone considering. Finding the way inside the building and to the restaurant can be a little tricky!
The steak here is the best anywhere in Tampa! The service was amazing! It was a little loud but it’s a small restaurant.
It was my wife’s birthday. The hostess and the waiter said Happy Birthday. Andrew was outstanding with his service and recommendations.
We were there for a 45th birthday celebration
Excellent dining experience. Wonderful service, delicious food and wine and we loved the atmosphere. 10/10 would highly recommend.
Waiter was on point and missed nothing. Water always filled, table promptly and quietly cleared. Excellent service and food
Great service and food
Great service and the steaks prepared perfectly.
Fantastic meal, great waiter and atmosphere!
Excellent menu. Lots a unique dishes. Out steaks were perfect. Server was very attentive. I highly recommend Malio’s.
Food was delicious, service was excellent. We plan on going back.
Got seated on time, honestly a few minutes early, but as soon as we got there. The service took forever though, from sitting to getting a drink was 20 minutes. The steak came out over an hour after we ordered, and it tasted good, but there was no update on why. It wasn’t a staggered meal thing.
Malio's was a great experience! Three of us had steaks and they were absolute perfection. The salads and appetizers were excellent as well. The atmosphere is intimate an service was impeccable. It was an all around wonderful night.
Excellent experience. Our steaks were flavorful and delicious, and cooked just perfectly per our request. Their bread is my favorite in all of Tampa. Outstanding service with a quiet and inviting atmosphere. We plan to return next month.
The 22 oz Del Monico was outstanding and a good deal comparatively speaking. The cheese board was very good. The sides (sautéed spinach and jalapeño creamed corn) were good, but corn was not very creamy, not spicy and very salty. We sat near the kitchen and got numerous heavy whiffs of fish. Nice setting and service was good.
The Best in Tampa
Excellent as always! Steaks were magnificent! Service was spectacular!
The food and service was phenomenal. The quality of the meat and the portions of the sides made for a fulfilling dinner. The staff was attentive and the restaurant’s ambiance made for an enjoyable dinner date. If we are back in town, we would love to visit once more. Highly recommended.
This has become our go to dining location for special occasions. We simply love the filet here and it’s the reason we want to keep coming back. Barely a spec left on our plates.
Service was very poor. I got the wrong drink. We requested that the escargot be served before the salad. The salad came out first and the escargot never arrived. Then he delivered someone else’s entrees to us. Lastly, the Sea Bass was not as good (appearance & taste) as the one I had there the week before, which is why we returned.
The food was delicious and our waitress was amazing! The only thing we didn’t care for was the loud bar area- but it was at the end of happy hour. So, next time we would book after happy hour is over to avoid the noise. We literally sat across from each other and had to almost scream lol! But, other than that it was delicious!! Service was top notch! Would definitely return!
2nd straight time their fryer has been down, so that was disappointing.
Evening started great!
Restaurant location and setting was very nice. Service was slow and it took over an hour to get our food. Waiter said they had a large party they were taking care of. Once our food was brought to the table, our Steak was way over cooked. Portion sizes on the sides were very small. Considering what you get at similar types of restaurants in the Bay Area, the value was not good.
Derek Lavarone and his staff are first class. Incredible meal and perfect service.
The food was good, but not exceptional, same as the ambiance and service. The service was notably awkward but not untimely. I would return if the prices reflected the food and service, not just the rent on the river.
The food was tremendous. Staff very accommodating to my families needs. Top Resturant in Tampa.
Poor cocktails, scotch was served instead of a bourbon drink, cosmopolitan not made as requested, no grenadine available at this bar for a nonalcoholic “mock tail”. A $75 steak ordered medium rare arrived well done, flavor of filets was nonexistent. Overall service was SLOW although the wine guy was personable when decanting the special magnum of wine that we brought in.
Always great service and outstanding food
Service was good, shrimp cocktail good. NY strip was 62 dollars, cooked perfectly but one of the toughest steaks I’ve ever gotten from a steakhouse. Very disappointing.
Was exceptionally loud in the restaurant. Was hard just to have a conversation and We were up by the windows. Food and staff were all great.
As always the food at Malio's was fantastic and it never disappoints. Unfortunately for some reason this evening the interior seemed more sterile and extremely noisy just from regular diners so it was impossible to have a quiet conversation which is what you expect when you are spending $100 per person.
Everything at Malio’s was fantastic, especially the service. Definitely try the carrot cake!
