  • Grandson's Top Choice

    Tony’s is my nine year old grandson’s favorite restaurant! My son and I treat him to Tony’s every 3 to 4 months and we always have a pleasant evening. Tony’s may not seem like an appropriate place for young diners but most evenings there are several families dining with children and I have never seen an issue. Tony’s offers a kids menu but they will also prepare a small filet for young diners when requested. My grandson always has the small filet, Caesar salad and French fries. He loves it! This evening we shared the mussel appetizer and my son and I both had steaks also. Everything was perfectly prepared. As always, the manager is in the dining room the entire evening.

    Visited Tony’s on a Sunday evening. Restaurant was not crowded and service and quality were outstanding. Manager was in the dining room all evening and visited often to make sure everything was as expected. We had the calamari and the mussels. Both appetizers are excellent and both are prepared in a manner unique to Tony’s. I had a tenderloin special that was very good while everyone else at the table had salmon or lobster. Everyone was pleased with their selections. The Greek salad is very good but if you wish a change, I would suggest the wedge with blue cheese and bacon for an extra $3.

    This was my first visit to Tony's. Searched online, found Tony's and several great reviews. The bar was packed and people were having a good time. We were immediately taken to our table, our waiter Dave, made several suggestions and explained everything about the place, menu and specials, and he always seemed to be on hand when we needed anything! The food was very, very good. The Greek salad was tasty. The Crab cake appetizer: nothing "cake" about it! It was a pile of meat and seasoning baked perfectly! The best I ever had, a prime example of what the ultimate Crab cake should be! The bone in Rib-eye... Wow! I am having trouble finding the words to justifiably describe it... Just, Wow! I must give Tony's my highest recommendation!

    This restaurant is a favorite for special occasions. The food is wonderful, and they are eager to please, also very willing to accommodate special requests. For example, a relative called ahead and purchased 2 rounds of drinks for us, on them, and our server knew about this ahead of time and made it very easy for us. Also, when I said "very light" on the salad dressing, they actually got it right--most places still drench the lettuce even after I plead for only a little. Steaks come out piping hot, which I love! Overall, a wonderful evening.

    This was our first time using this type of reservation system. We couldn't have been happier with how the entire event went. The restaurant didn't seem to catch the fact that we wanted a booth, instead of a table (this was very important to my wife), but they accommodated our desire without a hitch. The waitress did an excellent job of taking care of all our needs. She brought me mashed potatoes instead of the baked potato that I ordered, but she corrected the error, after I pointed it out to her. The music was maybe a bit loud, but excellent quality. My personal note is that one of the Managers stopped by out table to check on ever thing, and then shook my hand and thanked us for coming, before e departed.

    This was my fourth visit to Tony's and I will be back. Food has always been great and I've been a few times with relatively large groups and no one was ever disappointed. My only suggestion would be to expand the wine list some. It's good, but it's not great. I'm no wine connoisseur but I do prefer Zinfandel and there is only one selection offered on the wine list and I typically see at least three offered on wine lists at other restaurants on the same tier as Tony's.

    This was our first visit to Tony's. It won't be our last. The food and service were top-notch. The only downside - and there is little the restaurant can do about it themselves; it's down to the patrons - the general din is fairly significant at peak dinnertime on a Saturday night. Makes quiet conversation rather difficult.

    Very happy with our last minute decision to choose Tony's for our Sunday evening dinner! The Service was impeccable and very attentive along with the Manager coming by from time to time to see how we were enjoying everything. The food was phenomenal as we tried items from the raw bar and a selection of excellent entrees from Yellow fin tuna to the filets. The atmosphere was very comfortable yet still allowing for white linen tablecloths which set it off. I can't wait to go back.

    Tony's food is excellent and fair-priced. That is why my husband and I dine there. But unfortunately it is a very noisy restaurant. The loud, unpleasant music is usually in the bar, but this past Friday evening the "canned" music (some of it Frank Sinatra -- give me a break!) was obnoxiously loud. Bottom line: your diners come to your restaurant to visit and converse, not wanting to yell across the table. Why can't you simply be a fine dining establishment with classy background music -- instrumentals at a low decibel?

    Tony's was absolutely amazing. I wanted to treat my wife to a nice night out so I made reservations for Tony's. this was our first time here, and will definitely be back. We were greated at the door by a friendly hostess. Our waitress had our water on the way when we got to our seats and was absolutely wonderful. She had a good knowledge of the food and wine list. And when it came to the food- WOW. This was by far one of the best steaks I have ever had. Mouth watering, so much flavor. We absolutely loved it and will definitely be back

    Took my wife, kids and her parent's to dinner last Saturday. We got there early so that we could have a drink at the bar. Bartender was very welcoming and friendly. Good drinks. Seated at dinner at a large table in the middle of the room. Was a tad noisy but certainly not unbearable and could hear each other just fine. Everyone loved the raw bar. Salads and steaks were excellent, as always. Father-in-law got the spare ribs which were amazing (I tried them). Only a couple of takers on dessert as most of us were full. Service was excellent and all small details and requests were handled promptly and without issue. Yes, it is expensive but it's worth it...

    Very enjoyable evening at Tony's! Not our first time here and better than ever. We shared shrimp and crab from the raw bar. Very firm and fresh and nice mustard sauce and cocktail sauce accompaniments. Caeser and wedge salads good. I had surf and turf which was very good. Nice firm lobster tail and filet cooked a perfect medium rare - so tender I did not even need a steak knife to cut it. My husband's strip was perfect. We had Mac and cheese and brussel sprouts - yummy! Josh was a great server and Tony stopped by to ensure all was going well.

    We went since we had heard good things about it. Although we had a reservation, we had to wait in a crowded, nosy foyer area for 20 minutes until we were seated. Service was ok but not up to what we expected for the cost of the meal. Steaks were tender but not flavorful. Baked potatoes were hard & tasted stale. I had short ribs & mashed potatoes which were good but not memorable. The Brussel Sprouts were just ok. We would have been happy to pay the high cost for the memorable meal we were hoping for but this was not the quality we wanted.

    We went early so other than the vibrant happy hour at the bar the restaurant was quiet. Service was great, never an empty water glass. Appetizers were excellent (jumbo shrimp and lobster bisque). Salads were average but liked that they were included in the entree price. Bread was fresh out of the oven but nothing special. Steaks were tasty and cooked to perfection. Liked that the potato was included with the entree but again just average. We were too full for dessert.
