Always a delightful evening at this iconic bar. Bravo!
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.
Love Anthony’s Bar. The food is great and you can choose either the bar menu or the restaurant food menu. What a great casual gourmet dining experience. There are also a tv for sports watching if you want to watch
I love Anthony's Bar. It has a cool retro vibe, a real bar and fantastic food. It is a local gem.
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 :(
LOVE this place. ambience is wonderful and the food is always wonderful. Hamburger was incredible! Risotto wonderful. Elegant bar. Joe is a great waiter!
