Malio's Prime Steakhouse - Downtown Tampa, FL
I didn't much care for the wines by the glass menu, so I decided to order the Blue Moon Cosmo, which was pretty, as well as tasty. We ordered the aged white cheddar cheeseburgers with fries and the filet tips with mushroom marsala sauce. The filet tips came with a choice of salad, which I upgraded to the gorgonzola salad, which was excellent. It was so good, that next time I would just add a filet to the salad and make it a meal. The food arrived and the burgers were great and we loved the thick steak fries that came with them. As far as the filet tips went, I did not like the marsala sauce served in a gravy boat that came with it. It had settled into a thick, lumpish mess that wasn't very appealing. However, the filet tips were so good on their own, that after a first taste with marsala sauce, I ate the rest without the sauce. Unfortunately, I was full after that, so I didn't get a chance to try dessert, but I would definitely like to come back one evening for dinner. Another plus, the service was attentive.
