    The fact that they read you specials which normally means it’s not as expensive or a better deal hence by the word “specials” and do not tell you the prices. They up sell, the manager was rude and insulted us as if we figment afford dinner.. We will not be coming back.

    We arrived at 7:30pm and that is happy hour on a Friday night so the bar was packed with loud yuppies but was not too bad. Subsided shortly after happy hour ended, which was nice to return to the proper sound level. Atmosphere is superb. We had the prime and Delmonico, both superb with the flavor of the filet among the best in the area. Delmonico was grilled to perfection and full of flavor. The sides (asparagus and broccoli) were amazing and the chocolate cake with a shot of Frangelico was a unique surprise. All of the above highly recommended. Service was good (believe they are understaffed as are most these days) but very attentive. This is one of the finest steak places in Tampa that does not make most lists but should. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting no compromise elegant dining, romantic (or professional) environment, and great location. The valet is tight due to space but they make it work and is an excellent way to access the restaurant.

    Great for a private business lunch or quiet date. White tablecloth and napkins set the stage for something special. Food is excellent as well as the service. I have been going here for years and have always had superior service. Soups and appetizers are fresh, steak salad or steak tips with a side salad are both mouth watering. Catch of the day looked great and my guest enjoyed it. Take a leisurely stroll along the Riverwalk when you are done.

    Malio’s has become our favorite the past few months. We love it here, and can usually get a table that day of reserving so that helps. We are obsessed with their bread and their shrimp Theresa appetizer! Hubby always gets the ribeye and I always get the sea bass. It never disappoints! Service is also always fantastic!

    The night started bad when I got into an argument with the valet. I asked him not to move my car and he insisted that he could do what he wanted because he was the valet. This resulted in me parking across the street to keep him from messing with my vehicle. The people were friendly. The server was good but not super knowledgeable. The drinks were not bad but took a while to get to the table. The food was good and tasty but not awesome. The espresso martini for dessert was so-so. All in all, not bad but not memorable either.... except for the valet.

    A classic Italian steakhouse, and on the river makes this a fun venue. Food is great. The drinks are expertly made...well the martinis anyway. And the ambience is dark and very romantic. It's been a while, past two years and all. We were glad to be back, and will return.

    Malios never disappoints…we went for an early dinner after a movie date and got there just after opening. Seated with Justin who pointed us toward their new Italian reds. Suggested a nice Nebbiolo which was delicious. I had a filet and the wife had the veal Milanese (ridiculous) with a side of potatoes Malio (I could eat a buffet platter of this stuff) finished with an espresso martini and the wife’s “adult milk shake” was a great evening capper…will Always be back

    One of my favorite steakhouses in Tampa. Never disappoints, portions are great and the Delmonico is an absolute must have. The seafood dishes are also divine and worth it if you prefer seafood over steak.

    The steak was good. Not the best I’ve ever had. But good. The rack of lamb was very good. My boyfriend enjoyed it. The waiter seemed inexperienced and did not offer us the cocktail menu to begin with. The ambiance was nothing special. Our seat was by the stairs and it was distracting having people waking up and down next to us. Probably will not go back.

    christine at the front desk would not validate me, a friend and my cousin's parking ticket. The parking ticket was more than the eating bill, she was rude about it and my cousin was upset because she comes her almost every week and have always had her ticket validated. This was my first time and I will not be returning.

    We were seated outside. It could be very nice out there but no effort has been made. Tables and chairs are old and beat up and not in any type of order. Pretty dirty out there too. We used our napkins as placemats, not wanting to put our utensils on the table. We are frequent customers at Milo’s and love the food. Just wanted to give a heads up about your outdoor seating!! Take better advantage of the space!
