    This is an old fashioned, excellent Italian restaurant. We had the chef's tasting menu. The smoked salmon was excellent. The entire meal was excellent. Amazingly reasonably priced. My only complaint regard the wine pairing. With each course we were given a glass that had been pre filled with wine. No one brought the bottles over to pour at the table. Not very professional.

    Took my wife to Tonys to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. Had a 630 reservation on a Fri night and was surprised that we were the only ones in the restaurant until 7. It was a little uncomfortable for a while but by the time we left at 8, most tables were full on our side of dining room. Recommend reservation after 7 unless you want the place all to yourself;)

    We have been coming to Tony's for 20+ years and we always look forward to near perfection from start to finish and we are rarely disappointed. That changed on our recent visit. We arrived at about 8:20 for our 8:30 reservation. We were ushered to Anthony's and were told that out table was not quite ready. After asking the status of our table several times, at 9:20 I called Mike Shannon's to see if we could get our party of 5 seated immediately and they said yes and we were ready to walk out the door when they announced our table was ready. Maybe I was annoyed with the long delay in being seated, but the rest of the evening seemed a bit "off". The timing was off all night. Food was good, but not the special occasion I expected.

    Tony's is not in the same location as the original one I remembered 10 or 15 years ago. I loved the ambiance of the original old building and the old world Italian style then. This is a beautiful restaurant, comfortable and elegant. (my 33 yr old son called it stuffy). The food is outstanding. We made a reservation a week in advance, were 10 minutes early and were directed to the bar for a cocktail. The bar and service was enjoyable, but could see that people there were also waiting for a table for a specific reservation. We waited an hour for our table and after getting into the dining room could see that there were several tables empty. I don't believe I will go back, even tho the old Tony's holds fond memories for me.

    Tony's never disappoints in terms of food, service and ambience. Tony's is a must stop every time we are in St Louis. This experience was no different. I had the seafood special - Black Grouper and it was excellent. My wife had Trio of Veal and thought it was the best ever. The waiter helped us select an excellent Pinot Noir that pared well with both the seafood and the veal. Despite hosting a private party for 60 people the service was still everything I expected in the main dining room.

    We decided to eat here based on tripadvisor reviews. We were in town for a Cards game so decided to pick this as our Dining experience "splurge" for the weekend. We knew right away this place was a very classy and elegant restaurant After arriving and felt a bit out of place with our guys in shorts. However, we were never made to feel anything but Welcome by the owner,Vince, as well as all the staff. Kudos to the chef who prepared our meals and a special comment To the guy at the front desk who gave us detailed history of Tony's who made us feel welcome and took the time To treat us just like everyone else.

    After reading reviews on Tony's, I expected the food to be better. It was good, but I have had much better. It reminded me of banquet food. The atmosphere resembles a private club that has seen better days. The best part of the experience was chatting with the owner who came to the table several times; he was a charming man who obviously loves what he does. The service was impeccable and the almond tart with salted caramel ice cream was very good.

    Atmosphere, service, courtesy outstadning..high class. Food really good, but not really exceptional...several in our party enjoyed the appetizers more than the mains. Pricing a bit high for quality of food, but given the overall experience not outlandish. Highlight, though, was tour with Vincent of the kitchen...truly showed his pride in his restaurant, and was very enjoyable and made the evening. Overall a great night with friends: and it was a night, not an hour, as we luxuriated over dinner for three hours witghout so much as a hint that we were holding anyone up.

    Tony's has been a St Louis institution for many years. Sadly it was one that I had missed until my birthday this year. The highlights are the incredibly attentive service, the superb wine list, and the lovely ambiance. Tony's is "old fashioned" in the best sense of the term that guarantees an elegant and memorable meal.

    Disappointing on all levels. The bar (Anthony's) is underwhelming. No drink menu, and poor choice of whiskeys. My wife requested a cab and the bartender returned with a glass without a tasting, or being told what she was given. It felt like a catering bar. Dinner. We were seated in a near empty room. No music, dead quiet, empty room with the ambiance of a school gymnasium. Our wait staff were average. My food (red snapper) was very good. My wife's shrimp and lobster pasta was ok. A disappointing evening with a below average bar and dining experience. If you want great Italian experienceI'd suggest Charlie Gitto's on the Hill.

    Tony's combines great food and service to create a dining experience without compare. You forget that you are in a restaurant and soon feel at home among friends. The bar prepares excellent cocktails complimenting a wine list that blends wonderfully with a menu featuring some delightful dishes featuring lobster and veal. The staff actually listened to us and helped us chose the perfect entree. Definitely the best if you want to experience the art of dining rather than just eat. We can 't wait to return.

    Lovely restaurant. Service impeccable. The food was excellent. My husband and I had different dishes, all of which were very good. Steak Tartare prepared perfectly. Prosciutto with melon appetizer was fresh and tasty. Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly, tender and juicy. Excellent choice of wines. We had the Flambé Bananas for dessert. It was scrumptious. Can't say enough great things about Tony's.

    Excellent food, service and ambiance. I would have liked to have seen the wine bottles prior to the pour. Although entertaining, not a fan of the table side presentation. The pasta, steak and desert were outstanding. While the fruit and cheese plate had wonderful grapes it could have been conceived better. Only one of the cheeses stood out. It was essentially just a couple of pieces of cheese and some grapes. I expected more. I would suggest adding some nuts and fig jam. This was really my only complaint.

    nice atmosphere, but the food was at a standard of a regular nice restaurant, not worth a $600 bill for 4 people. They decided to open a 3rd bottled water without asking and started poring it at the end of the night when we were done, small but frustrating. Some of the food was really nice some was just ok, the dessert at the end of the night had a special that was highly recommended and it wasnt that great. Like I said nice dinner but for the money not worth it.

    Perfect, Our waiter created a tasting menu with all the nights specials, and did the custom wine pairing to match each course. Very attentive service, food is served at the table after being heating over an open flame cart. Our dinner was well cooked and served with care. Amazing experience, very similar to Le Cir in Las Vegas. The owner, Vincent, was close by, and was truly interested in our dining experience. We will eat here again when traveling to St Louis.

    Considering its reputation, I was a little disappointed with the food. The dressing on the house salad was tasteless. The three veals entre was good but I have had better veal dishes at other restaurants that charged $10 less. The risotto was very good as was the salmon. The service was very good but not outstanding.

    My husband and I were here for a convention so we ate dinner out 5 times. This place is top notch! Not cheap, but you pay for what you get. I had the asparagus appetizer and the risotto for my main course. Can't remember what my husbands first course was, but he had the veal loin chop for his main course. We both loved our dishes. The servers are ever ready to refill water and wine glasses. Everything was impeccable. I finished with the cheese and had the most incredible French Brie. Tonys is a treat! I think jackets are in order for the men. Everyone seemed to have one on.

    We have been gone from Missouri (and Tony's) for sixteen years when we lived in Oregon. Saturday was our celebration dinner for our permanent return to the state and absolutely nothing has changed. Vince is still a warm and welcoming presence; the service is absolutely exquisite, the food was every bit as good as we remembered. In essence, the entire experience was memorable. If you are in a hurry and just want a quick dinner, Tony's isn't the place for you. If you want to savor the full and absolutely perfect dining experience, there isn't a place like it in St. Louis.

    I made a note in the Comments section when booking my reservation that we would be celebrating a birthday and anniversary, and that we'd prefer menus without prices if available. Upon arrival, everyone from the captain to the busboys, including Mr. Bommarito himself, wished us happy birthday and happy anniversary. The thing about Tony's service is it's not only great, but they make it look easy. It's always a pleasure.

    Tony's knows how to pamper guests. Some servers have been at Tony's for thirty years, and are incredibly good at what they do-- serve, and often prepare tableside, tasty, carefully chosen dishes with complex, subtle seasonings/sauces. The scallop appetizer is to die for! Seared to perfection, they are topped with a tarragon cream sauce, rich and light at the same time. Menu includes many seafood options, and my husband's grouper was super! Serving sizes are generous, and my appetizer risotto was creamy and flavorful. End with zabaglione--perfection in a dish! It is hard not to overuse perfect in this review. The tone is set by the owner. Attention to detail, in food preparation and service, is what makes Tony's unique.

    In a world where excellence has gone by the wayside too often and too quickly, you can have faith that Tony's is still the classic fine dining experience it always was. I ordered my favorite dish from there, Lobster Albanello, and it was as delectable as ever. My dining partner ordered the lamb and found it excellent. Quiet, romantic, lovely evening.

    We had a group dinner of 7 and had no trouble hearing everyone at the table when they spoke which is what you are looking for with a group. So many times you dine somewhere and background music is playing or the sound is amplified and the people talking can't hear each other. In addition, the food was simply EXCELLENT and service spectacular! A lovely evening I would highly recommend.
