We were staying at JW and this is only restaurant taking reservations — we had a late one— we showed up early and were still accommodated. My husband and I both ordered filets and they were very good. Slightly over priced but good service and food.

JW Marriott's resort was awful but this place was incredible. Steak was excellent, drinks excellent and service was phenomenal.

The live music was good and the service was excellent but the food~pretty bad and I’m pretty easy to please. The appetizer I ordered was good but it was downhill from there. I ordered the Rigatoni pasta~the pasta was not cooked properly it was quite chewy and the sauce just had no taste at all. My husband had the lobster tail which was about 4 ounces and not flavorful. We finished with the dessert which we literally laughed at~pretty awful. It looked artistic and pretty but the taste was sad We won’t go there again.

We were staying at the JW so it was an easy decision to eat at Ario. My husband ordered a "smoky" old fashion which was smoked in a beautiful silver box and presented at the table. The glass is then pulled out and the cocktail is assembled table side. Truly a beautiful and delicious drink! We had a wedge and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. The shrimp were large and done to perfection. The wedge was also good but be warned they use a strong blue cheese if you do not like strong cheeses. Our filets were cooked well with a nice crust on top. Just how I like it. This was a wonderful meal with nice ambiance. My only complaint is the service was faster than we would like but we

This restaurant had fabulous food, a great selection, perfect portion sizes, and top notch service. It was the single highlight of an otherwise very disappointing stay at an overpriced, underperforming hotel.
