It was just ok. The service was terrific. The food was average . I wouldn't run back there. The portions were horrible for the price. If you are going to charge $$$ or more, the portions should match. We tried the steaks and the Ahi Tuna. If it wasn't for the service I would give a 1 star. Sorry but its true

Malio's is a great place for dinner. It is regular date night for my husband and me. We tried a different dessert on Saturday night - "ice-cream sandwich". I do not recommend it. The cookies on the outside were so hard you couldn't cut them with a knife. This is the only item we have every had at Malio's that has not been exceptional. We will still be regulars at Malio's - but we will never order this dessert again.

Malio’s was an all round wonderful experience! My father who nearly died about a month ago was able to travel to Tampa to see Andre Rieu (bucket list item for him). He and his beloved raved about the Sea Bass, the shrimp Theresa (oh that sauce!) and the kindness of the staff. The dinner and the show were a perfect evening for them! Thank you.

It’s very loud in the area above the bar. I would suggest asking for a table on the mother side of the restaurant if you want to have a conversation with more than two people.

While in Tampa for four days at a convention we ate at 3 different high end restaurants. Mario's did not rate close to the experience and value of the other two. There was sort of a tired indifference to the execution at Mario's. The restaurant is dark and formal. A good place for quit conversation. We went for long periods without seeing our waiter. Given our location in a curved section of tables we were very isolated. By the glass wines were ordinary, sent the first back. Food was heavy and lackluster. Server did not know how to support our experience. Moved a table set-up from 4 to 2 sets by removing tableware but did not reset the remaining place settings. By reference I would give our experience at Roy's a 95, at Charlie's a 90, and I would struggle to give Mario's a 70. We came away excited about our other experiences, they were "fun" from a culinary perspective. Mario's was a slog where we regretted the time invested let alone the bill for what was delivered.

My husband and I came here for our Anniversary dinner and it was great! The food was excellent, and our server was awesome! It is a bit dark inside, so it's good for date night or if you are looking for a more intimate setting.

The waitress was fine. The service rating was low because I had a reservation and asked to be seated by the bar. I was told no but later found out that only people with a reservation could sit in that area. Hello I had one and they could’ve been more accommodating.

Very nice place and enjoyable. A little loud for us and we found be it hard to talk in an oversized booth. Food was delicious even through I was given the wrong dish. I honestly think even the server could not hear me say Ahi Tina Appetizer and not the entree. But it was still delicious. Would go back and enjoy again.

Smoked gouda mac n cheese delicious! Steak also tasty. Ambiance was too dark, no windows. For how expensive the meal is, the service was underwhelming: had to ask for fork and knife, then soup came with no spoon, bread served to table like 15 minutes after being there, drink refills delayed. Servers were nice.

Was in the mood for a good steak. While we like Berns, we are beach bums and I don't even own long pants anymore. So it is either Charlies or Malio's in the area to have a great meal with shorts and Tommy Bahama shirt. Hadn't been in a few years so figured we would head there. Service was perfect. Our server drifted in and out to fill our drinks and replace plates without interruption. The escargot was excellent as were the steaks and sides. Decent wine list with varying value. All in $300 dinner for 2 with wine. Excellent meal. Will definitely come back.

Exceptionally poor service, would not recommend, nor dine at Malio's again! Waiter (Shawn A.) exhibited an attitude from the start. Asked if I wanted to start with a drink or cocktail, I replied I'd look and decide later and would keep the drinks menu; that's when I noticed the attitude. Additionally, the restaurant menu indicates, "seafood prepared blackened, grilled or pan fried topped with citrus butter Theresa Style, piccata". When I placed my order for crab cakes (3) I hadn't noticed the seafood preparation options, nor was I asked by the waiter how I wished to have the crab cakes prepared. Because I'd kept the dinner menu, I subsequently noticed the seafood preparation options and sought out the waiter to convey my seafood preparation wishes (pan fried topped with citrus butter Theresa Style), to which he said they're only pan fried. I replied, that's not what the menu indicates for seafood preparation options, to which he repeated they're pan fried. So I asked if the menu was wrong and followed that question with cancelling my dinner order. I'd also ordered an appetizer (chopped salad) which I'd eaten, regretfully, and upon completion asked for the check. When the waiter brought the check I took the opportunity to voice my displeasure with his service to which he asked "what did I do right"? I replied, "absolutely nothing", departed, and left no tip.
