Anthony’s has always been a special combination of great food in a casual but sophisticated environment. The service, especially from Joe, is always best.

The food was phenomenal! Service was so-so. We did as they said and came in our Cardinals gear and we where looked at as outcasts. If I could come back in dress casual I would come back for a second chance.

We use Anthony’s as our for-sure good ambience and great food for out of town guest or emergency special meal. This particular evening was the best. We had entire side of bar to ourselves while talking with a friend undergoing serious chemotherapy at WashU. Joe took care of us in usual classy fashion. Our friends felt they were receiving special treatment by the Joe and the bar. Nope, it was the usual at Anthony’s. Thank you for a most special evening

I make an effort to eat here every time I get to St. Louis. I always find the food outstanding and served with enthusiasm. I am especially fond of the lobster and shrimp pasta. It is by far the best seafood pasta I have ever had. The flavors are just right and the sauce’s consistency keeps it in the pasta rather than on the bottom of the bowl. . It has set the bar so high that every other restaurant’s recipe falls short and is a disappointment. Joe the bartender/server obviously is proud of the food and drinks he serves as he always greets you with a smile and loves talking about the food. He adds to the charm of Anthony’s. Don’t pass up a chance to eat here.

We sat for a good 5 minutes with no water or anything At that point one of the Bommaritos that was talking to a table behind us took two baskets of bread off of the table in front of us that had been set up for a larger party that hadn't shown up and dropped one basket off at our table and when I said hello he seemed a bit startled, didn't say anything and went back to the table behind us to continue the conversation with them. Finally our server came to the table and filled our water glasses and brought us menus - it was closer to 10 minutes since we sat down. We ordered cocktails and pate appetizer. The very dry pate had good flavor but was so dry it wasn't pleasant to eat. Cocktails were delivered after the pate. Meal was expensive for what it was and the quality of service. It is a waiting room for Tony's. Too bad - we used to eat at the old Anthony's and it was wonderful.

I ordered the special Osso Bucco, it was excellent. Although, a long wait for the food to come but it was worth the wait. We were short of time as we’re going to a 7:30 show, otherwise, the food and service is excellent. I always enjoyed the atmosphere, the feel of a private dining club. We will come back!

Made reservation on Open Table like I have done many times in the past, and when we arrived, we were told Open Table Customers were only allowed to sit at the actual bar - not at any of the tables around the bar. We will never go back. Food prices do not equal bar food.

Anthony's brings the quality of its sister restaurant at lower prices, but one can order from Ton'y menu as they share the same kitchen. Their osso bucca is wonderful and we shared one portion with a splendid risotto. It is not inexpensive to dine at Anthony's but it is a bargain because the quality of the cooking is so good. Everything is just right. It is perhaps our favorite restaurant in St Louis, so we are not unbiased.

We booked this restaurant based on other reviews. We did not enjoy the atmosphere or the food at all. It was a bit hard to find, and when we called, we got "Tony's". Finally found this little spot and the whole experience was just a little weird.

This was pitched on OpenTable as a "$" bar experience, which describes it as, " THE cool and happening place." Sounded like fun. Instead, it turned out to be a stodgy, expensive ($$) experience for dowagers. The food was quite good, if you are looking for a fine dining experience (as you would find at Tony's, their companion restaurant next door; they share a kitchen and pricing). Terrible place? No, not if the advertising were accurate, but it did not meet expectations, hopes, or budget ... we weren't looking for fine dining in an empty bar. Put this one down as false advertising by the establishment and by OpenTable . Shame on you.

Love Anthony's Bar! Anthony’s Bar is one of the best kept secrets in the city. I am always surprised that more people don't know that it shares a kitchen with Tony's. I take clients and friends here, as well as it is my go to place for a romantic evening with my better half. Anthony's Bar is a great place to grab lunch without the noise of other downtown establishments and an even better place to enjoy an outstanding dinner.

We have been to Tony's a few times in the past and loved the food. Our friends love going to Anthony's because they get the same food for a bit less money. The atmosphere was cool and old school, the service the same. The food, however was mediocre. My steak and my husband's fish were both overdone.
We were in a hurry, so no time to send back. We just were no as impressed as we thought we would be. Maybe a case of you get what you pay for?

My friend's steak came out well done when she ordered medium rare. So our grumpy, inattentive waiter took it back and I had to wait an additional 10 minutes to eat my food as it sat at the table getting cold waiting for the cook to get her steak right. What's so difficult about pulling a steak off the grill before it's turned into leather? You're a restaurant, for God's sake! Then we were handed a bill for $85.00 for a Moscato, 2 beers, a steak and pork chop dinner.... never going back :(

Celebrated our husband-wife birthdays at Anthony's Bar and had a wonderful time. We were traveling through St. Louis and this was our first time at Anthony's, which is across the lobby from the famous Tony's Restaurant (same family). Joe was both our bartender and server; he was polite, funny and professional. Anthony's provided a beautifully set table at the window. My wife ordered the penne with asparagus and wild mushrooms, I had the risotto with shrimp, both with house salads. Our meals were delicious, as was the wine. This venue provided a memorable night for our special occasion and we will be returning.

We haven't been here for years but decided to try it out for downtown restaurant week. I had eggplant stuffed with ricotta for appetizer. Delicious red sauce . He had toasted rav. Then he had pork chop and I had Parmesan chicken. Both were great . They were busy and I think our waiter was overwhelmed. We will go back

We stayed across the street from Busch Stadium and wanted a good restaurant within walking distance. Most offerings were sports bars or other casual dining options. We wanted fine dining in a casual atmosphere and Anthony's Bar was the perfect answer. We arrived early for our reservation and we're seated immediately. Joe, the do-all bartender/server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and specials. We chose to share an appetizer special (shaved roasted veal with tuna sauce) and a salad, both outstanding. We each had an entree and shared a dessert. The whole meal was excellent, along the lines of what you'd expect in New York or Chicago. Because Anthony's shares the kitchen with Tony's, it is assured the quality will be excellent. We were thrilled to have chanced upon this lovely little restaurant and will certainly recommend it to anyone traveling through St. Louis.

This is a gem of a place if you want Tony's great food but not all the formality. Very informal place. Perfect for before baseball if you don't want stadium food. Service is good. Sensitive to timing. Specials for the evening are often great. I had delicious white asparagus salad, a cold pea soup, and the appetizer size (it was plenty big) soft-shelled crab--extra delicious with a lot of meat.
