The food, service and my overall experience was great. The noise level was a little high and it was hard to hear the others at my table at times. I would return for lunch or dinner.
The location was good and it was close to the Straz - the purpose of our night out however the food was just okay for us along with the service. Crab cake pasta had shell pieces in it - something that shouldn't happen when the tab is over $100. The pasta wasn't well seasoned either but I will say the crab cakes were good along with the portobello side I got. The caprese had zero balsamic on it - total let down for my husband who's a big fan typically. Our server disappeared at the end and we had to ask someone random about the check - they seemed low on staff and distracted for a busy night of Hamilton in town. For the price, the location and view didn't wow me like Armani's does. I'd go back but I'd lower my expectations and just get drinks and apps before a show. There's room for improvement, hope this helps spark it.
We were going to see Hamilton at the Straz Center and went for an early dinner. The service was excellent and the food was also. We were provided with excellent walking directions to the venue and had a very special evening.
Our party was late due to traffic in our commute from Fort Myers to Tampa for our reservation before Concert. Staff, hostess, waiter were all super—professional, accommodating and efficient in their service. Food was amazing. We would highly recommend. Thank you for creating a wonderful experience!
Good service, good food, odd dining set up. Would only want to be seated upstairs
Food was beyond awesome. We had escargot that was perfect in taste and texture. Sea Bass and filet for our entree, and bananas foster for dessert. Our waiter was great, very accommodating, and knowledgeable. Overall, great experience
Staff was on Point!!! I interacted with the hostess, the patio waiter and a table waiter and they were exceptional!!! Made our experience fun!!!
Our favorite date night restaurant. Amazing food & service.
Extremely good food and well paced meal if that makes sense. The ala carte sides are amazing and the service was expedient but not pestering. Very nice place with a classic feel to it. My Filet was perfect. Thank you!
Made reservations for a date with my wife. We drove around for a while trying to figure out where to park. Once in the restaurant there was no hostess to greet one. Waited 10 minutes before she showed up. My wife ordered the NY Strip (well done) I was very specific that she doesn't like a bloody steak. when she got her food the steak was rare with plenty of blood. Told the waitress and she said " I'm sorry your steak wasn't as you ordered, you want to take it home" really how inconsiderate. The noise level was horrible. I felt I was on a Rays game. I will never come to Malios ever again.
Very weak food quality, especially at their price point. Steak at Outback just as good. Service was great.
Excellent food, better service! Highly recommended!
There are too many other good restaurants in the greater Tampa Bay area to be charging this much for average service and average food. The wine was brought to the wrong table and the bernaise sauce came extremely late and the server was too busy training another server then to be attentive to our needs. Overall....pretty lackluster. This was our first experience at Malios and frankly we expected to be blown away but left wondering why Malios has the reputation it does.
A very nice contemporary decor. Staff were fabulous. Drinks very good. And great happy hour specials. My only complaint was that the steak was average at best. Just not a great steak for the money. Everything else was very good. I'd go back for sure.
Happy hour menu is only available at the bar but all the bar tables were reserved. When I made the reservation I wasn’t given a choice. That’s the entire reason I made a reservation.
Love it and the best burger in town. Cant wait to go again!
The 10 Oz filet I ordered was barely the size of 6 Oz. It was cooked ok but not a great cut for being advertised as prime. My dates Tuna was also cooked ok but very tough. A very disappointing dinner for 180.00$. The server was nice and did a good job.
Great food and service. I had the Delmonico. It was the best steak I have had in a very long time. This was my first visit to Malio’s. I am visiting from Maryland. Whenever I’m in Tampa, Malio’s Steakhouse will be on my agenda.
Wasn't the best; there may have been a game that let out. We chose this location because we wanted a nice romantic dinner... But we got an ambiance similar to Applebee's with the service to match. Don't get me wrong, the food was worth the extra "TEMP_OC_CONTENT_HEREquot; added on the end, but def won't go back. If I see $$ on a restaurant, I expect a stellar experience from the moment we're greeted until it's time to leave. This was not the case.
The food was great. Phenomenal steak, great portions.
Steaks were not to the level presented, not tender and lacked flavor. Pasta was undercooked and the fish portion was very small. We eat out a lot throughout Tampa and Orlando. With their rep, we expected a lot more.
Food was great. I was pretty loud in there though which was the only downfall. Plan to spend around $100 a person but food was amazing. Only thing that wasn’t good was the Gouda Mac n cheese. Total let down.
The service and food was amazing! I'll definitely return when I'm in the area again.
We came to Malio's for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The wine list was very expansive and had a lot of options. Everything from our appetizers to our steaks was delicious, cooked very well, and brought out quickly. In addition, the ambiance was perfect for an anniversary. We had a window seat and out table was lit with candles. I highly recommend Malio's for a special occasion.
Dinah and the staff are always incredible and on top of things! Always a place to go when you want to impress someone for sure! Don't forget to try Remedy as well for a before dinner cocktail or for light fare. Great vibe and scenery!
We had a party of 7 that went to dinner before a show at the Straz. The service and food was phenomenal. Almost everyone there agreed what they had ordered was “the best” they had. Will definitely be back.
Attractive room, very good food overall, good service and good drinks. Recommended.
Great experience and food but a little pricey.
We went there for our 50th anniversary. The steaks were delicious and the service was impeccable. The wine choice was wonderful. They brought us out a beautifully made desert. We had never been there before, but will go again.
Overall good experience.
My first time there but have been to many other premium steak houses.
Overall dinner was good, but portions were small.
The place is a bit crowded and noisy with the tables too close to an open bar area.
Definitely not what I expected. Soup should not be made off premises. Not for that price point. Won’t be going back.
Excellent filet , east coast oysters and service at bar where I ate
Do not order seafood pasta trust me on this one . Entirely to much salt on everything so much salt that it will never go bad sitting out. Sorry Malios I was very disappointed. On a positive note the salads were good.
This restaurant is written up as a high-class romantic restaurant. Not true. Very loud in a open atmosphere. My wife and I ordered 6 oz filet steaks. They were $39 each with no sides. Mine actually had grizzle on the ends which I've never had with a steak this bad before. For 2/6 Oz steaks one side of potatoes and two drinks the bill was over $120.
The hostess was very rude! And they used all their heat lamps for a special event at another location which totally threw off our plans which were made 2 months in advance.
Thank you to Dina & our server for making me feel so special for my birthday!! I had an amazing evening and so did my friends!
Food was excellent as was the service
Change your hostess,. At my office, she is as unpopular as a police officer giving you a ticket. She is terrible..
