    Food was average. Service was terrible. Waitress never came back to our table after taking the order until the end of our meal. Food came out in all the wrong order. My wife’s food came out 20 minutes before I got my food and the appetizer came out with my food. Again waitress never came to check on us at all. Won’t be going back. Food not good enough to overcome service issue.

    I have dietary restrictions (gluten) so I’m very cautious where I eat, and I have to applaud Tonti’s for the gluten free trout almondine. It was delicious! If you’re gluten free, substitute the fried potatoes. There are several GF sides. The ambience is awesome and so are the cocktails. I enjoyed the music that was playing during happy hour! Lovely place.

    This was our first time there and we were very impressed. We moved to the Westbank early in 2021 and it is difficult to find solid restaurants there. Tonti's is definitely the exception. Everything was fantastic and we will be back soon.

    A return visit for the best mussels we have ever had. Crusty bred to dunk in the broth. Oh YUM! Also had a lovely salad with basil and tomatoes and a tasty vinaigrette. If you havent eaten here yet, you are missing a real treat.

    Not a big fan of the Brussel sprout salad full of peppercorns and it tasted like slaw. French onion soup was exceptional. Trout was very good and the green beans were great but the fries would not be my pick with the trout and green beans. Smashed burger was good but too greasy. David the waiter did a good job but he shouldn’t hover over customer while they are filling out tip.

    Very attentive staff & fabulous service. It’s a fun, quirky place that had great music & ambiance. The escargot, omelette & grilled bread was unbelievable. The Nicois salad was not great due to tuna & eggs being way over cooked. Cocktails were very good! Enjoyed trying an out of the way spot!

    I would have given the restaurant 5+ stars but about halfway through our meal, the whole restaurant filled up with a hazy smoke emanating from the kitchen and we it was difficult to enjoy the rest of our meal due to burning eyes and lack of adequate ventilation. Very charming staff and attentive service but I will sit outside next time.
