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!
Anniversary, stuck us in a very small space that was to have a water view but looked out over an outdoor bar instead. Food was good but poor wine list and struggled to find a decent glass of white wine.
It is not a big restaurant so it is noisy. Our waiter was fantastic. Food was very good , all of the filets that were ordered were under cooked. The issue was half corrected on one order.
Experience was fair. Ambiance is great. Service was fair. Food fair. My French onion soup was cold. My salad was dry and I had to ask for more dressing which took awhile to get. I had been dying to go here. Finally made the reservation but this isn’t the Malio’s I remember.
Loved this place A++++
Wonderful food and ambience. This is a definite go-to for downtown Tampa business lunches.
Ordered the lobster & filet. Lobster was delicious and the filet melted in my mouth. Good wine and great service also.
Everything was FANTASTIC!! This was my first visit but not my last
The hostess was not at her post when we arrived for our reservation. She did not appear for a full 5 minutes and did not apologize for nor acknowledge that we had to wait. Our server also left a lot to be desired as he was not attentive or knowledgeable about the menu or the bars offerings. There was a party that was obnoxious and inappropriate for the surroundings. The food was great though.
Food has gone downhill. Service is excellent as always. Noise level was so loud we could not hear conversation at our own table and resorted to lip reading and passing messages along table members- not fun.
Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Best crab cakes ever!
This was the 3rd and final time in the past 6 months with a horrible experience. Wife’s steak was not cooked correctly. Sent it back and only half came back. Inquired with the staff and suddenly our waiter decided to disappear for the remainder of the meal. $400 later completely and utterly disgusted with experience. Typically would brush it off, but 3 times (same issues) is a trend. Next time it’s Ruth’s Chris or Capital Grill.
The food was wonderful and our waiter had perfect timing.
Always excellent food and service. The steaks were cooked perfectly.
My wife and I very much enjoyed our dinner. The food we ordered was excellent. It was a little noisy
But with all fairness it’s what you expect when you eat in the bar area. We will definitely return.
Everything was amazing! The server was on point and the food, especially the surf and turf, was delicious. Will be back again!
Crabmeat pasta with princess sauce is one of my favorites. Also a must is the 22 ounce Delmonico with Malios mashed potatoes
The only issue was the location of our table. It was Grand Central Station with people continually walking by holding trays over the top of our heads and coming close to knocking over our drinks.
Always enjoy the atmosphere, service and their happy hour is the best. Just note, on Fridays, it ends at 6PM so we will go earlier next time to enjoy more of that menu. Angelica was our bartender and just lovely with her service and appearance.
Went for a first time dining experience, food was excellent. Our server Alec was very attentive & recommended their espresso martini which was amazing!
Claudio, Deena, and Emiliano were all SUPERB for a business dinner held in the small meeting room.
Great view from the outdoor patio seating! Service was great and the food delicious.
The food was all wonderful - as it always is here! And our waiter was outstanding!
Our server was fabulous
They brought out a congratulations dessert for my daughter’s college graduation. Such a nice surprise
Derek and his staff took great care of my wife and I. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the ambiance was perfect.
One of the best Steaks I’ve eaten in quite a while. The service was impeccable !!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Always a pleasure to go to Malios. Nice atmosphere inside, especially bar side.
Always top notch food and service.
