    I haven't visited Tony Roma's for a while, since there are none in my country, Japan. I knew this place because I have been in the States when I was a kid. I'm sorry for the Japanese who don't know such delicious ribs are available here. I hope I have a chance to visit again soon.

    Dined on 9/8/2014
    If you like ribs, really really like ribs...then Tony Roma's is the place to dine. Choices are: Baby Back, St. Louis, Beef Short Ribs, or even a sampler! Ribs were meaty, juicy, and tasty! Signature Sauces are another hi-light of dinning at Tony Roma's! I love the Carolina Honey sauce! Even the sides are tasty! Service by Miranda is another plus! Attentive, friendly, and a step ahead of our needs. It's nice to not have to ask for a soda refill or extra napkins! She knew what we wanted before we did! There were 6 of us in our party this past Monday and she handled all of our special requests with no problems.

    Server was not as engaged with our table as she was with the others (had several full conservations with others). Server had to "check" on the food (in the kitchen) multiple times. Order included ribs (over cooked = burnt and fatty) and the steak burger (not seasoned, under cooked from frozen package). Not only did the food not resemble the pictures in the menu but did not have the same items/ingredients as the menu described. Food was not cooked to order and came out extremely late. This issue was brought to the server's attention. Manager came by the table and introduced himself as the manager and walked away. Surrounding 3 tables (of 12 people) were sat after but received their food and check prior to my table. *Positive, live music.

    Restaurant was lovely, food was fab. However we were completely rushed all through the meal by the waitress clearing away while we were still eating. And even coming to us for desert orders while two of us were still eating our mains. Would be dubious about going again.

    Came here because we miss the "old style" Tony Romas - International Drive has the original menu, original restaurant and that is exactly what we wanted. Service excellent, food excellent. Don't ever change your menu and restaurant to the new "Tony Roma's" like the one on Semoran Blvd in Orlando, Fl

    Staff greeting guests at the door were less than friendly. The live music was very loud making conversation difficult. Waiter took our order fairly quickly. Took a while to get our food but not excessive. When I cut into my steak it was way over-cooked. Waiter was no where to be found. Finally got his attention to tell him about my steak & he said he had to check with the manager before he could do anything about it. Later he said they would get me another steak & he would personally make sure it was cooked correctly. It wasn't - it was more over-cooked than the first one. Waiter avoided us & never checked on us again. Manager never came either. I paid the bill & left. Terrible experience. We won't be back ever!!

    We have eaten at Tony Roma's for years. When we travel, if there is one there, we will eat there during the visit. We frequented the local one on Semoran, by the airport. They recently remodeled and changed the menu. We will not go there again, it was so disappointing. The Tony Roma's website showed the Semoran Blvd restaurant was a different menu, but the International Drive location still had the traditional menu. We just went there, got our normal favorites and the meal was incredible as usual. I commented to the waitress that it is a shame the Semoran Blvd location changed. She told me that apparently all of them will change eventually and the International Drive location is set to change in approximately one year! NOOOOOOO!!!!

    We had been to this Tony Roma's once previously and enjoyed it-- searched it out on OpenTable when back in Orlando recently. The staff and food were equally excellent. What stood out even more was their approach to handling a food allergy my wife recently became aware of. After notifying the waiter and placing our order, the manager (Tyler) came out with a special book that lists all their ingredients and common allergy issues faced. He patiently reviewed what we had ordered and verified nothing would trigger the food allergy. This approach is the best-organized and most thorough I have seen at any restaurant and really won us over. Their professional handling makes Tony Roma's a new family fave!

    Long wait even with the reservation, but the restaurant was extremely busy and staff remained friendly. Not a great place for large groups (more than 4) as this seemed to be the reason for the extended wait time. Food was good as always but we will avoid peak hours in the future.

    We made this reservation at the last minute. We couldn't decide where to eat and decided on Tony Roma's. It was a great choice. We were seated promptly and our waiter was very attentive. I had the Filet Medallions and my wife had the ribs. 3 different sauces on 3 medallions all were excellent. My wife said the ribs were great. We would early here again in a heartbeat. Not a good place for vegetarians
