Due to the time of year, our second visit was very disappointing. No nice booth by a window, no quiet conversations, no attentive servers.... : ( We brought 2 friends to show them the Malio's experience, but apologized for the experience instead. Will remember to stay away during party season! If you can not provide the type of experience you usually offer, maybe you should consider taking less reservation or less parties.

The steak was very good. From there it went downhill. The baked potato was barely warm, and sautéed spinach was raw. Really ugly resturant

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.

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.
