Had a party there that was way to loud for a high priced steakhouse. Not pleasant. Had the newyork strip and it had entirely too much fat. Wasn’t satisfied considering.

The food was pretty good. WIfe and her friend had salmon and vegetable platter. I had the seafood pasta. Only comment was the pasta noodles still rather chewy to eat. However we were in a hurry to catch the performance at the Straz so did not ask to cook further. The only seafood in the dish was shrimp and scallops. The wine was pretty good. The noise level was rather loud. I thought the dress code was very lax. Considering it is a steak venue and very expensive thought the dress code would have been better. Wife's friend requested to taste wine before ordering and it was brought with something small and black looking in the glass and the person bringing the wine kind of shrugged it off. The wine ordered did not have any issues. In all honesty I personally would not return due to the price level, sound level and finding the parking entrance.

Great place for dinner before a show at the Straz. Given it was Lent, we had an all seafood experience and it did not disappoint. Lobster bisque and tuna tartare for apps, blackened sea bass with grilled asparagus for entrees. The sea bass was to die for - silky, cooked perfectly. We will be back!

Service was fast, server was attentive and food was delicious. Came to Malio's during the lunch hour and was impressed with how quickly we were served given the lunch rush. Had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and conversation with colleagues. We had an array of meals served - salads, pasta and burgers and each of us was happy with our order.

We had a ver good waiter, nice ambience, pleasant staff but neither the Cowboy RibEye nor the Roast Beef were quality meat, nothing like The Palm used to be, or Flemings or Eddie V's even though the the prices weren't much different.

We always enjoy Malios. The service was excellent as always but this time the best yet, the food delicious! No appetizer but we shared a ceaser salad with fresh Parmesan tableside, good! My friend had steak and me Chilean sea bass, both prepared perfectly. Endless hot garlic bread and wine too. Recommend!

This was our first visit to Malios.
We came here because we didn't plan far enough in advance to have a reservation at Bern's.
We were disappointed with it having the noise level of a raucous pub, when we were hoping for a warm and intimate 'chop house' feel.

Was in town visiting my daughter and decided to have a bite to eat at Malios on my own. Had always gone with others. Sat at the beautiful bar and was served by Nick one of the most fabulous bartenders I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Food was a 10. Wine that Nick recommended was a 10. The whole vibe in the bar area was great. Polished and high end without being stiff. LOVE!

Not worth the money. We had NY strip, sea bass, Caesar salad, and smoked Gouda mac and cheese. The steak lacked flavor and was not very tender. The Caesar salad had very little dressing, and the Mac and cheese (which we were really looking forward to) was pasta with a watery cheese sauce. Would have been better off eating at Ruth’s Chris for this price.

We ducked into Malio's to treat my 9 year old daughter to a steak dinner (her choice) and had a very nice evening. The flavor and presentation of the food was good, but the quality of the cut of meat (Delmonico) we chose was a little under what I would normally expect from Malio's (very hard corners and lots of gristle). Service was exceptional. It's not cheap by any means, but on par with the Ruth Chris's, Charley's, etc. Very good for business dinners and well located.

The menu had great options and the meal was fantastic. Everyone ordered filets and they arrived at the perfect amount of doneness that was requested. Waiter was personable, knowledgeable, and kept a good pace.

Only problem was noise level. Difficult to maintain a serious conversation around the table without speaking loudly.

Malio’s Is always a good alternative when looking for a great steak or Italian specialties. The service is prompt but not invasive. Ribeye was cooked perfectly. Blue crab pasta was awesome. Try the lobster escargot for a great appetizer.

Malio's was very good. The decor was very elegant and well kept. The wait staff was very polite and generally very attentive, but we were handed off a couple of times throughout he evening and really didn't understand who the lead waiter was. The BIGGEST downfall is the UNNECESSARY kitchen noise. We were sitting nearest the hostest stand and the noise coming from the kitchen non-stop was deafening. Dishes were clearly being stacked and cleaned along with silverwear. A simple door or curtail between that area and the patrons would make a HUGE difference. This was a Saturday night at about 8pm. It wasn't like it was closing time. Again, the food was fantastic and we tried items from all over the menu. Quiet the place down and it would be a real gem.

First time in Tampa and was looking for an amazing steakhouse. After having googled Malios and making my reservation, I was then told to go to Burns. Well I stuck with Malios and certainly didn't regret it. The food is wonderful as is the service. And it was walking distance to the Amelie Arena and from our hotel downtown. Thank you Malios ! You were perfect !

The bar noise was rather loud so they seated up in a booth and it was very nice. The food was delicious and our waiter, Ben, was just attentive enough. The restaurant surprised us with a desert to celebrate our anniversary. All in all, we will definitely make the drive from Lakeland again.
