We had a lunch reservation after our wedding and everything was perfect. Our waitress was so nice and accommodating. We had the private room which made it extra special! Will definitely be back!

I had lunch with a group of 5 girlfriends. We wanted to visit but the noise level was so high it was impossible to hear each other. The reason was not the crowd but the hard surfaces everywhere. Sound was bouncing everywhere.

The food was mediocre, 1 dish came out with cold pasta and a second one was wrong( this I think happened because of the noise level.

The Mandina Family always make you feel special! You are warmly greeted before you even open the door. You are seated with a smile, served with compassion, and left with the feeling that you belong there and don't want to leave. The ambiance is excellent as is the soft piano music. The food is beyond excellent and the food choices are so scrumptious it can be difficult to decide. When in doubt go with the Veal Classico, Chicken Lindsey Grace, or Eggplant Dominic Jude. Desserts are delicious sous, the wine selection is great, and the experience is unforgettable! This is my go to Italian restaurant!

We took our 5 yr old granddaughter here for a celebration lunch after her PreK graduation. Everyone, from Mr. Tony on down, made her feel extra special! AND the food was delish, great service, and a cherished memory for our family. I have a feeling this will be her restaurant of choice from now on for family dining out occasions and I don't mind that at all :)

Food was excellent, however, our waitstaff must be relatively new, and I experienced. It took several trips to get water and basic items to the table. Five of us for dinner, and one ordered small appetizer, and remainder had soup. Appetizer was brought out, and wasn’t until I finished, the soups arrived. Seems like all pre entree items could have been brought out together. All entrees were excellent, albeit the veal was a bit lukewarm, so not sure if it was sitting out waiting on other entrees or not. Dessert (rum bread pudding) was to die for.

Food & service were good overall, but we had to wait for about an hour for our table, even with a reservation, so that aspect of our experience was unsatisfactory.

Tony Mandina's Restaurant is AWESOME! From the moment you enter you are greeted by friendly, attentive personnel. Then, you meet Tony and Grace; what wonderful people they are! Been to this restaurant numerous times for special occasions and just for dinner with friends and I have never been disappointed. Appetizers are great, food is delicious, value is unbeatable, and the Red Gravy is the Best. This is my go to restaurant.
