I am a Bronx native, so I grew up with Mario's in my vocabulary. Much to be desired, don't get too excited, here is the good and bad:
Great Arthur Avenue bread
Lobster Ravioli are usually delish
Decent menu selection, including appetizers but entrées are a la' carte
Interesting history of patrons
Slow and inattentive service
Food is just not up to snuff, poor serving sizes and taste is "eh" at best
Drink sizes are shamefully small
Incredibly overpriced for your portion sizes
Hard to park, so valet
Chef Ramsey needs to come and update this location for so many reasons
Gets incredibly crowded, especially weekends
Eat here once and get it out of your system, chances are you won't go back, unless Ramsey visits after your dining experience. Many other restaurants which will not leave you as disappointed.
