    We were in town for the Western & Southern Open, and wanted to find a more upscale place than the food available at the tennis venue. I looked up steakhouses on Open Table, and found this. I have a steak and baked potato. Very good. My wife had a filet and mashed potatoes. She said her food was a bit bland. So she salted it up a bit. All was well, and our service was also good. If we return to the Open next year, this place will be on our list.

    My husband and I love going to Tony's. The service is great and the food is even better. I generally never eat meat but I do when I visit Tony's. The filet is perfect unlike when I go to other well known steak restaurants who over-salt their steak. The management staff is constantly walking around ensuring your visit is top-notch. I highly recommend Tony's.

    This is my 4th time dining at Tonys. And, they never disappoint. The food is outstanding, and fairly reasonable given the high quality of food----much more reasonable than Rubys, Precinct, Mortons, or Ruths Chris. But, what I have grown to love most is the ambiance. It has a 1940s New York Supperclub feel to it. If you squint a bit, you can almost envision Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin sitting at a table near you. And, clearly Tony and his team want to create that personal feel to each customer's dining experience!

    We went to Tony's for our anniversary and I thought the food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. This was on a Saturday night, and there was a live band which we really enjoyed. My wife and I both had "The Dallas" and were very happy. My only complaint is minor but perhaps worth mentioning in that we had a reservation for 7:45 but had to wait an additional 10 minutes for our table. Not a huge deal, I am just big on being prepared for your appointments.

    We were came to Cincinnati on a work trip and went to Tony's from the reviews on line. We weren't disappointed! The food was excellent and the wine list was excellent as well. We arrived a little early and were able to purchase our wine bottle at a happy hour discount so that was a plus (it's 20% off). Sat in the bar for a little bit - it was crowded, noisy and seemed to be a fun place - everything you would expect for a happy hour. Dinner was cooked to perfection and the wait staff was very attentive. I was a little surprised at the way people were dressed because they seemed to be much more casual than I expected. Overall great place and would definitely visit again next time we're in town!

    Enjoyed a first visit to Tony's. Brought the family through after a 2 day vacation. 3 steak entrees and 1 pasta. All excellent, but our appetites were not on "high" and we asked for leftovers to be packaged. Not sure what happened after the food was removed from our table, but Tony's manager approached our table and said that there had been a mishap and that he was bringing us a complimentary dessert. We were a bit confused, but then he returned after dessert with 2 complete steak meals and 1 pasta, all neatly packed and apologized for any inconvenience. Not sure what the "mishap" was, but the recovery was great

    Food is great but we expect a level of service commensurate with the prices. It's a good thing the nearby Friday's just closed. Maybe they can pick up some more amateur servers and staff. They brought our food and forgot us. We would have ordered a second $58 bottle of wine but we couldn't find our server. I guess the $200 bill was enough. Love the live jazz at the bar for an after dinner drink but again disappointed by the service. Yes the food is great but I really feel like these guys are just phoning it in. We won't be back for dinner but maybe a nightcap for the jazz. At this price point we can get professional service and attention elsewhere.

  • 1ST TIME AT TONY'S
    BiskitVIP
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    This was our 'default' choice since our normal trip downtown for a date night was not deemed to be a good idea that evening (highway closings, Lumenocity etc). We were very pleasantly surprised from the greeting at the front desk to the location of our corner table. Initially it was difficult to talk to each other because of the volume of the sound system, but this was eventually reduced to a moderate level. We were very impressed that both the manager and the owner (Tony) stopped by our table to check on our welfare. Our food selections were delivered successfully and were very tasty. Afterward we stopped by the bar for an extra drink and listened to the jazz trio that had just started playing. Thus we found a new restaurant to enjoy.

We both had the Greek salad. Our server (Eileen) was very sweet and kind. I have some dietary restrictions, and she was very accommodating. We had a great meal.

    I have dined at Tony’s on 4 occasions this summer and it is a different experience when Tony is in the house. This is not a negative remark about the manager, who does a wonderful job, but when both the owner and manager are present everything seems to go perfectly. Tonight, Tony was in the house and our steaks were perfectly cooked and had great flavor. The calamari was outstanding and the new sauce is very good. We had a wonderful evening.

    Had an awesome birthday dinner for my wife there. She had a filet, I had an excellent Blackend Grouper with super carmelized greens and polenta but, note I said it was my wife's Birthday. The acknowledged it and then offered nor sent anything for a Happy Birthday dessert. Not a cup cake with a candle or even a cookie. I thought that was a bit classless.
