Our daughter setup a private dining experience for us at Ario. 8 course meal, paired wines. Service was perfect (thanks Lexi!). The food was unbelievable. Checkout our photos which while spectacular, but honestly do not do these dishes justice. If you want to experience a Michelin Star level restaurant but not pay up for it, Ario is a must. Highly, highly recommended.

Great service!! Karen was fantastic! Very nice, informative, happy to help! The food was exceptional! Go here if you want a great meal. They ask if you are celebrating something, and if you are, they will treat you extra special! They gave us shrimp cocktail, two desserts and champagne! In addition we hade the scallop appetizer, the wagyu tomahawk steak, ratatouille, potatoes and cream spinach. All were so delicious!! You will not be disappointed!!

Awesome place to come and have a great meal...once you know what to ask for!

The food is great, the staff are great. What more could you want?

Well, everything that was ordered the first time was either cooked in a cream (spinach), smothered in truffle butter (steaks) or similar making it all very rich.

The restaurant staff are all very accommodating if you request items not in this way.

Have the tomahawk steak - delicious!!!

Not a cheap dinner out, but worth every penny!

I have to say this was one of the best restaurants in Marco Island. Our waitress Lexi was amazing! So friendly and very informative! We are from Brooklyn NY and she recently traveled to Brooklyn and had a great experience, she shared/recommended some new restaurants to us in Brooklyn. She was amazing!! She recommended so many great things on the menu! Everything she recommended we absolutely loved I had the lobster which was delicious, my sister had the rib eye with truffle butter and she loved it she actually said it was one of the best steaks she ever had and that means a lot coming from NYC where there is plenty of great steakhouses! Chief Gerald was amazing! He was from top chief on bravo! So friendly and a great chief. I highly recommend this restaurant when visiting Marco Island.
