    I had long wished to have dinner at Tony's and was not disappointed. Service was gracious, but unobtrusive. Food was good, and well-prepared. We really appreciated the wine-pairing option on the Chef's Tasting menu for two. A wonderful experience we will not soon forget, and expect to repeat. Special bonus when Mr. Bommarito stopped by the table to visit. What a sweet man!

    What a great night. Everything was perfect from the time we walked in until we walked out. Our party of four had a fabulous meal and great evening. Food, wine, and service were all spot on. Carlos was our table captain and his recommendations were all wonderful. While everything was good, you have to get the lobster albenello! We had the albenello, oso bucco (very special), and the tenderloin with foi gras. Treat yourself to something special; get to Tony's!

Carlos, our server, was the best. We couldn't have asked for a better evening. We usually only come once a year for a special occasion but that is going to change! A perfect evening!

    Tony's is like no other. Vincent Bommarito has kept his old-school values in place while others have let them fall fallow. There are a lot of people on the floor -- captains, waiters, bussers -- each fully trained in his or her role so they can execute flawlessly. Sure its costly, but its how a proper white-tablecloth resaurant ought to be run. The menu is based in Italy, but very diverse. One thing you'd have trouble finding outside NYC is Dover Sole, but its on Tony's menu and served with all the grace of England from where it came. Tony's wine list has a lot of surprises -- many good selections from better years. The best surprise -- Tony's prices are very reasonable given the fie provisions and the labor involved.

    We enjoyed a great dinner for our anniversary at Tony's. The food was excellent, as we expected, but the real difference for us was the service. Our waiter, Adam, was helpful, knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. In addition to Adam, there were 2 other waiters taking care of our table, and all of them were clearly well-trained. We never felt like the waiters were hovering, but it was almost as if they anticipated what we wanted before we even knew it ourselves. Everyone we encountered at Tony's was wonderful in every way.

    I have heard about Tony's downtown for many years, so, my wife and I decided to have our anniversary dinner their this year. As far as food quality, taste and presentation goes, I would give Tony's a 2 out of 5 (not impressed at all). However, the service at this restaurant was outstanding! Also, I was served wine (not from our actual waiter) in a chipped glass with a very sharp edge on the rim (never to be expected especially at a place like this). I must admit my wife and I are hard to impress when it comes to food since we are foodies but, their are MANY great restaurants in St. Louis for MUCH less money. We will not be going back to Tony's but, now I can at least check it off the list.

    We have been going here for many years and it is by far our favorite restaurant in St. Louis. The food & service is consistently outstanding the drinks are incredible. If you have an opportunity to visit Tony's, don't miss it. It is worth every penny and it will be a standout in your restaurant memories.

    With prices this high, there is little margin for errors but our evening was filled with them. From the salads being served to the wrong guests (the server got them switched between the 2 couples), our Bibb salad with hearts of palm and artichoke hearts being made of a much heavier fall lettuce (without having been told that would be the case), no pepper mill being offered and having to ask for cheese for our pasta appetizers,one of the guests having to ask for her water glass to be refilled, and the potatoes on one of the entrees being undercooked and still crunchy in the center, this was not the "impeccable service" and attention to every detail that we've come to expect from Tony's. Yes, the food was delicious. But...

    We went to Tony's to celebrate our first anniversary. Reservation was made for 8, we were seated at 9. The staff was friendly, and the food was good; being from a foodie town like St. Louis however, I know I could get the same quality food ( if not better) from several other places and half the price. I'm glad I got to experience Tony's, but would not return.

    We were disappointed. Well below our expectations. Many, many restaurants in St. Louis provide a better experience than Tony's did for us. The host was fantastic. He was the best part of the evening. The wait staff was just ok--not what we are used to at a first class restaurant (and certainly not what we remember years ago the last time we went to Tony's). The wait staff did not add to the experience, which is so important at this level of restaurant. The food was not bad--just not worthy of a special trip. We arrived early and wanted to sit in the bar for a cocktail. Dead. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary and wanted to go some place special. Other than the name and reputation, this place was not it. We likely will not return.

    When you haven't been to a restaurant before, you can try to create a picture of how it will be from the reviews of others, but diners perspectives differ. This place was great, the staff was attentive, approachable, informative and we didn't think they did too much or intruded on our night, but really they participated in making it special. The food was special, the veal trio was nicely flavored, the lobster and shrimp with mustard sauce was very mustardy, just what I wanted. The creme brulee with berries was large and totally outstanding, large enough to share, really. I'm glad I finally made it to this Saint Louis landmark, I hope to make it back someday.

    We were initially seated in a section off to the left of the front desk. This was a very dark and very smoke smelling room. We were given menus and tap water. We did not like the smoke smell so we asked several employees if they smelled cigarette smoke. They said no. Well we asked to be moved and we were. The next room was bright and beautiful and no smoke smell! We found out from the staff in the new room that the dark room we were in was the old smoking section.The waiter Nick was very professional. Food was exceptional

    A very busy Friday night, compared to our anniversary celebration last year on a Thursday. Service was as impeccable as ever. We were not rushed but neither did we have to wait for any service. The special white asparagus salad was beautifully presented; while it looked petite, it was extremely flavorful and filling. The Dover Sole was melt-in-the-mouth perfect!

    For our 10th wedding Anniversary, I wanted to do something special for my wife. Having recently had a baby, taking a trip or even leaving town for the night was not an option. I decided to surprise her with a simple evening out. Having never been to Tony's but always hearing great things, I made dinner reservations. To say it was "a hit" would be an extreme understatement. We LOVED it. Amazing food, amazing service (Carlos and Austin were great), and amazing atmosphere. For any special occasion or "just because", I highly recommend.

    Food was good but not the best I've ever had, in fact had alot of meals that were better. However the service was spectacular, attention to detail had four people working the table. If that's the best that St. Louis has to offer,well that's their problem. Our best meal was on the HILL at a much more reasonable cost with very good service.

    There is no finer restaurant in the St. Louis area. There's a reason why Tony's is rated as one of the finest restaurants in the US. From start to finish, one could not ask for a better experience. Superb food, excellent service, and worth every cent. Outstanding wine list. On a scale of 10 I would give them a 12.
