We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice restaurant in Lakeview! While steak is certainly on the menu, there is an eclectic selection of other items including stir-fry and Italian items. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and a congenial and efficient wait-staff. Our food was nicely presented and very tasty. There is a reason Mario's is the... More

Look for the little red door with "Mario's" over it. Great steakhouse in a small Oregon town. Dinner for two, including an adult beverage, soup, salad, fresh baked bread, a cut of Rib Steak (cooked to perfection) and coffee - came in at $54.00. Service was excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone passing through Lakeview.

We had a large group (11) and when we arrived we were informed that some of the staff and the bartender were attending a funeral. The performed very well and the food was all cooked great. The fillet and rib eyes were cooked to order and tender as advertised. They even gave us free dessert because they thought they performed... More

What a surprise. Outside looks like could just be a bar but inside it's uptown boutique with good food and service. Hi to Jackie who was everywhere, chatting, serving and pulling it all together.

Always great food and service. Mario in the kitchen and Christie handles the service staff both excellent. If we had a choice of another restraint in our small town... which we don't.... we would still go to Mario's

It is mostly steak and seafood, although the name suggests Italian.Great soup in a nice restaurant. Good steaks and they split it for the two of us, adding soup salad and starch for a very reasonable cost. I'd definitely stop again.

What a great surprise to find such a quality meal in a small town. Right from the get go the salad was fresh and tasty and served with wonderful soft dinner rolls served very uniquely in a sort of paper cone. Our server was very attentive with out being intrusive and our dinners arrived piping hot. My husband had a... More

An amazing find in a town miles from anywhere and it made for a very welcome change to the usual roadside diners. The atmosphere is quiet, unrushed and with dimmed lighting. The waiters were most professional and very attentive but not too overpowering. Although we were only in Lakeview for one night I'm guessing this is by far the best... More

I had the special rib eye with whiskey sauce. It was OK. The steak was thin and not especially flavorful. The salad dressings were limited. The house rolls were great. In light of the options maybe the best restaurant in town.
