We truly enjoyed our experience at Tony Mandina’s! Everything including Mr. Mandina himself greeting patrons, table-to-table, made this event a very comfortable, intimate occasion. Our server was excellent and attentive. The food absolute perfection! Definitely worth a drive to the West Bank.

What a great place for family and friends, not to mention the best Italian food around town.
And the piano player is Phenomenal! His choice of music ran from A to Z, old to new.
Grace and Tony Mandina and the staff make you feel at home.
I'll be back!

The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. I had the artichoke soup and the eggplant entree and it was done to perfection. Absolutely delicious. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the preparation and ingredients. This was a wonderful experience and I will certainly visit again and again.

Food was excellent. Really enjoyed the artichoke soup. Our waitress Judy was on top of her game. We definitely will be back to enjoy this deliciousness. My husband said it was the best lasagna he has ever eaten. Also, if you are looking for a good adult beverage, the raspberry lemon drop martini is a must try.

The service was excellent and the food was very good. But the noise level was quite loud, making it hard to have a conversation in a normal tone of voice. We'd certainly go back for the food and the service. But we're hesitant because the noise level tarnished an otherwise very good experience.

Our dining experience to celebrate my Daughter’s Birthday was a very wonderful experience. Tony Mandina’s little extra touch with Birthday confetti on the table was very thoughtful and made it very special. She also received complementary bread pudding for dessert. She was so surprised. She enjoyed every bite. We cannot say enough about Tony Mandina’s. Also our waitress, Caroline N. went beyond the call of duty and was very attentive and the service was impeccable. We will definitely be back to Tony Mandina’s.

this was our first time eating here, the westbank of New Orleans is not our first though. While the food was good it was not one of the better Italian restaurants in the area. Our server was friendly and helpful. She recommended the "Lindsey" sauce which was rather watery and lacked much flavor. As the place filled with customers it became rather loud.

Great food. Excellent service. Just very loud, we almost had to scream to hear each other. We went last night for my son’s Birthday. As usual the food came out quick and tasted great. The server (Mrs. Shiela) was fantastic. I just wish they could do something about the sound, for some reason every table has to yell over everyone else, Or they need to serve quieter customers.

Blown away by the class of this restaurant. I work at a fine dining restaurant and I am happy there is a upscale restaurant on the Westbank. Parking was directed by a gentleman in a bowtie. Hostess', 2 not understaffed. 45 seconds we are directed to our table (I made a rsvp online). Prompt service by our server Connor. We had full meal, drinks, app, entree's, dessert. Great service by Connor, food runner ran our cheese points, busser made sure our waters were filled, floor manager ran my CC. Best and sweetest part...I assume the owners thanked us on the way out, the finely aged couple behind the hostess booth having a dinner together. !!! Great quality of food and drinks for the price, and there was a live music piano player.

It was my 9 yr old daughter's father/daughter dance and we made dinner reservations prior to heading to the dance. Dinner was great and the service was more than exceptional. Our waitress Jessica went above and beyond to make my daughter's experience memorable. My daughter even met the owner and his wife, and learned some Hawaiian dances from another employee. Great night!!

Tony Mandina’s never disappoints. They are family owned and make you feel like you’re part of their family. We celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday there and she was treated like a queen. Our server Sheila is amazing! She knows exactly what we like and makes sure we’re taken care of. Mrs. Grace, Mr. Tony and beautiful Lindsey stopped by the table to talk and make sure everything was perfect. Thanks for a fabulous evening...... that’s why Jeanne Marie picked your restaurant to celebrate her birthday!!! Thanks for everything

Tony Mandina’s is an excellent venue for that special night. From the welcoming doorman, talented pianist, and excellent wait staff to the authentic Italian food, this restaurant offers the best dinner experience on the West Bank. Highly recommend the eggplant appetizer and lasagna - you will not be disappointed!
