    What a great place to go for a semi-casual fantastic dinner. While Tony's is one of the best in St. Louis, Anthony's offers a more relaxed atmoshper with the option to order off Anthony's menu (which is very good), or Tony's menu. I highly recommend the Rissotto with tenderloin and don't forget the bannana ice cream for dessert. To die for. Service is always top notch and the bartenders/servers make the experience even that much better.

    Anthony's bar is essentially Tony's in a relaxed atmosphere. The two "bartender -servers" are terrific regardless of how busy it gets, the food is excellent, either its own menu (my wife adores the chicken milanese) or you can order from Ton's menu. Plus there is a large tv which you can watch for an important event sport or otherwise or ignore. Its a favorite place. Even when crowded it is not noisy. What more can I say?

    Four of us dined her during Downtown Restaurant Week and ordered from the special menu. First-course cannoli and prosciutto--fresh-fig salad were delicious, as were the pork chop and chicken Milanese entrees. Desserts were the highlight. Portions were generous. A few of the dinner rolls weren't fresh and were replaced with apologies from he waiter. The food comes out of sister restaurant Tony's kitchen so you can count on ti to be delicious. And you get the standout desserts of Helen Fletcher, Tony's executive dessert chef.

    Lovely spot, classy but not stuffy Excellent menu and service Our waitperson forgot an appetizer which was disappointing but very apologetic . Wheelchair access is tight and needs to be improved Bar stools should be moveable. I cannot believe they are nota fire hazard. The food was excellent: traditional but imaginative. How I wish there was a jewel like this in Boston. Overall it was wonderful.

    i have been to anthony's before with no issues - this visit was not up to par. Food had no flavor/seasoning, salmon was dry. Worst issue is the mgr reprimanding the waiter/bartender where we could see and hear it. It made us not want to comment on the food as it could have caused more negativity. Not the Bommarito experience you would expect for the amount of $$$ spent.

    Tony's St Louis top restaurant has a more casual side, Anthony's Bar. Food is great and you can order from Tony's menu too. We have been dining with this family for over 50 years. Some items are so great they have been there the whole time. Sometimes their special is black grouper over risotto, try it! Asparagus season so enjoy either the mixed salad or the one with only white and Gorgonzola cheese. No one does pasta like Anthony's and Tony's. We go often, and will continue dining with them.

    If you want the same well-regarded food from the Tony's kitchen without the high-end ambience of the Tony's restaurant, have dinner next door at the bar. The atmosphere is more casual yet still special, classy. It's like having your own private restaurant. Plenty of appealing menu options. Nice, big portions. Leave room for dessert: lots of temptations and worth it.

    Once again we visited Anthony's before a Cards game. It was an early game on a Tuesday, so the bar/restaurant was almost empty. Great food and service. The real perk is using Tony's valet for parking. Nice to go hop in your car immediately and head home!!

    My wife and I went on a Thursday evening. I ordered the evening special, a cod loin served with fresh vegetables. I was looking for something light and got it. It was flavorful and moist. A total surprise. A cream of asparagus soup preceded the main course. That too was delicious. As usual the presentation was superb.

    It is VERY small and quaint, At first we thought we were in the wrong place because I could literally throw a roll from one corner of the restaurant to the other. We were greeted almost immediately by our server and sat. Girard was VERY friendly and outgoing and was attentive and interactive the whole night. I could tell it was a good place because there were regulars that came in and sat at their "regular" table. The older owner who was dressed in a full suit came over to greet us and welcomed us as first time customers. Very nice touch. The ambience was nice as there were also cardinal fans at the bar having wine dressed for the game. I would definitely go back in the future!

    Anthony's never fails to provide excellence on all counts, as it shares kitchen and style with Tony's next door. The ability to order from Tony's menu us just another plus, but Anthony's offers excellent value on its own. The tradition of quality survives well here.

    Tony's in St. Louis is the best in town. Whenever we have out of town guests ,this is where we go. Anthony's Bar is a casual less expensive side of Tony's. You can get the Tony's menu and Anthony's. On Anthony's menu this past weekend there was fabulous lobster bisque. We had the fresh asparagus salad and the famous Tony's salad. The black grouper was a special this night which we love and also had Dover sole. Nobody does the sole better. There is always a wonderful pasta special to have as side dish, starter or main course. We have been going to this family restaurant for 50 years. Vince, Vince Jr and James always make us feel as family. We are so glad to have this option in St. Louis.

    My wife and I wanted a nice pre Cards game meal for our anniversary. We made reservations on Open Table and had a great meal. While it was not an inexpensive night, the food and service were good. Quite honestly, we would have spent a small fortune for food at the game, so dollar for dollar it was a much better value. Highly recommend for a pre game alternative!!

    Food was delicious but unless you are well known by the wait staff and owner, you might as well be invisible. Our experience lasted over two hours most of which was time spent waiting on food, no drink refills, not being offered anything extra, and observed others around us being treated like royalty because they were on a first name basis with the owner and staff. So if you can get well known by the staff and owner and don't mind feeling like a redheaded stepchild on your first several visits, you'll be fine.

    Time and time again, Anthony's Bar has proven to be an outstanding spot for a fabulous dinner. The food is absolutely outstanding. How could it be anything else, as the food comes directly from Tony's. Anthony's Bar has it's own menu, but you can also order anything from the Tony's menu. I eat here a few times a year, and every time I do I ask myself why I don't eat here more often. The owners and the staff always make you feel welcome and greet you with a genuine feeling of hospitality. The service is always top notch and the atmosphere is perfect for a romantic evening or a business meeting. I love Anthony's Bar and everything about it!
