This place impresses me more everytime I go whether for dinner or happy hour. The staff, food and atmosphere are amazing. I take out of town guests here so they can get a taste of downtown at a family owned restaurant vs going to chains and get rave reviews everytime.

Birthday dinner for a friend, we had a lovely view of the river and a table for two out of the way which made having a conversation very nice. The waiter was the utmost attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu. The food was far superior to any I have had in The Bay Area. My girlfriend introduced me to Malio’s in December before the Patsy Cline show at The Straz. I have been back twice since and will recommend Malio’s very highly to my friends and family. Thank you so much for a superior experience.

Although they are known for their steaks, our seafood dishes could not have been better! We had a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their meals, apps and the great service. I had the best snapper of my life! The shrimp app was delish as well. Very fresh and prepared to perfection.

2.5 hours, countless excuses about the kitchen, no food made it to the table, 2 watered cocktails each. That was our experience.

The management allowed young, under age children into the restaurant. They were noisy and disruptive. The worst part was that they accepted a to go order for 60 for a professional team in front of their in-house, regular clients. Consequently it took 2 1/2 hours to get our meal. On a positive note, the wait staff were fabulous, working under very uncomfortable circumstances, and the food was delicious. Management was completely negligent! We are very unhappy and will share our disappointing experience.

Malio was a very pleased experience during our visit to Tampa. The food was excellent and the service as well. We called ahead for a reservation and were told it was fully booked until 9 PM so I went online and reserved our table using Open Table which helped us get in at 6 PM

My daughter and I there to celebrate her completion of college. The service was very slow and the steak was very tough. I have been to many high end steak restaurants amd this is at the bottom.

First time eating @ Malios, our waiter John made the evening. He was professional and offered the features for the night. The atmosphere was very intimate, wish the Lamb Chops would have been available, was not a fan of the Mac and cheese with lobster could have been mixed together better and the sides could have been hotter in temperature, overall I would go back but at a less busy time. Food tends to be rushed or lack of when its a Friday or Saturday evening. Otherwise John was absolutely wonderful. He made the evening
