Tony's at the J House menu offers something for everyone-- homemade pasta, fresh fish, and grilled steaks. Chef Denis' dishes take on the wonderful smokiness of our wood-fired open hearth. Vibrant salads, seasonal roasted vegetables and a revolving cheese selection round out his innovative menu. We are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. The J House features a live music program that infuses the dining room with a hip, modern vibe.

Too loud, too frenetic, slow service, OK food. Probably won’t go back but the filet was quite good. The ladies enjoyed the branzini and tuna. Arancini and lobster mac were tasteless.

Tony's is consistantly outstanding, tonight was business as usual. Scott the Som served up a very reasonably price Farniente' Cab that paired nicely with our oversized delicious Seafood cocktail. We went on to enjoy two homemade pasta dishes and luscious desserts. Service was spot on. What's not to like?

very good experience as always. Quiet night as it was a Monday. I know it's Greenwich but pricing is a bit high.

It was Valentine's day which usually means you are going to overpay, especially on the prix fixe menu so we decided to order off of the "regular" menu however I am pretty sure it was still part of the prix fixe menu despite paying $80 for a steak that was rare and cold and a teaspoon of cold mashed potatoes and 3 carrots... Seriously!? We sent the steak back and asked if the mashed potatoes and 3 carrots were a joke. We were told by the waiter it was just a garnish which was bull because the menu stated: "served with mashed potatoes and carrots". The steak came back hot but well done and the mashed potatoes and carrots were still cold... Oh and we ate our meal on a table which was too small to hold the 1 meal that we shared and folding chairs which was obvious they tried to cram as many tables in as possible so every time someone walked by we were bumped into... Awesome!

For a nicer restaurant the cost was very affordable. The food and drinks were delicious and have already recommended many friends to go for either happy hour or couples on dates. I love how the old school tradition of the owner going around to each table is still alive there!

Excellent experience. The food was really well done. Surprisingly large portions for a Greenwich / NYC area fine dining experience. It was appreciated. Staff was friendly and attentive. Fun atmosphere.

Wonderful experience! Thank you Chef Denis to a delicious evening. Live music, broad menu, beautifully designed restaurant - perfect Saturday date night. We shared the oysters and tuna tartare for an appetizer - fresh and delicious. Dinner was bone in rib eye and bone in ny strip with the garlic mashed and broccoli, the broccoli was the best we’ve eaten, seriously. Don’t forget to order the Zucchino for dessert! Can’t wait to return!

we have been here many time... always consistant and very good. Portions are large and can be shared. meatball appetizer is good for 6 to try! this time we had the chicken scarp. it was delicious. The place was packed on a Sat night, restaurant and bar. despite that the food came out (a bit slow) well prepared, hot and delicious! Special thanks to Tony the host and owner. He tries to meet and greet everyone and makes you feel welcome and special...usually has some trivia questions for you. They have live music th, fr and sat nights which is nice! I highly recommend visiting!

We had a fabulous time. Menu is great, food outstanding and loved, loved, loved the live music. We sat inside where the band played, but they have an entire outside area (enclosed for winter) with separate bar, tables and quieter mood.
And of course, Tony is his usual and fantastic host.

I was so looking forward to a better experience at a steakhouse. I was going to order the fillet mignon but there was a special for Kobe beef that night. I ordered it and fora steak that cost $100 for 10 ounces it literally had grizzle and it was as thin as paper and I was shocked when it came to my plate ...do you all remember the Sizzler Steak House? It was worse than that. I could not believe my eyes. All that being said service was great not sure I’ll be back.

We had there just once before Tony took over and hated it! My wife and her daughter went shortly after Tony had taken over and really liked it. So she and I tried it Sunday.
We got there @ 10:30 am not realizing that the brunch menu started at 11:00.
However upon hearing that they checked with the kitchen and accompanied us.
As we have acknowledged everything was top notch and Tony came over to say hello.
Most enjoyable brunch!!
Thanks to Tony and the entire staff!
Highly recommend it!

If you haven't been to Tony's . . . then you better change that! It's definitely a place to try. The food is very good, the atmosphere energetic and fun. It was completely swamped all night - from 6:30 pm until we left at 10 pm. Only complaint - tables are close together and it can be annoying to get bumped by servers passing thru tables and pouring wine. Also, our server often forgot about us, it shouldn't have taken us 3.5 hours to eat three courses. Nonetheless, I'll definitely go back. Tony has done a great job bringing life into a space so deserving of attention.

You should be so lucky to have such a good time with friends at dinner. Our server was Chris and he was very friendly, funny , and polite. We never felt rushed and the food was top notch. Tony was as entertaining and funny as we had heard! The live music was fantastic as well. Bottomline is go to Tony's for an entertaining and delicious dinner with perfect service!

I am very excited to write this review as we were so pleasantly surprised! i have been to Tonys before and was very please with the service and food let alone the atmosphere. I was just here with a guest for New Years Eve. My experience generally on holidays is that you will be disappointed if you expect too much, boy was i wrong here. There was a price fixed menu as most have for holidays. The surprise was as follows ... the choices were plentiful with choices of appetizers, entrees and desserts that were satisfying to all, Despite the the full house the service was (as always) very attentive, friendly and professional. The food came out as ordered! No send backs, no cold food or overcooked sides. The servings were plentiful. Honestly i never saw shrimp cocktails with jumbo shrimp that big! The meatball appetizer were huge. the main course, my filet was done to perfection and my guests parmigiana crusted chicken was the best she ever had! All guest at other tables seemed to be very happy too. There was a live band playing but you should note that they have live music 3 nights a week! The owner ...Tony... is a true restaurateur. so personal and friendly truly wants all his customer to be happy and enjoy... be sure to say hi to him. We will definitely be back each time we are in the area! Good work Tony!

The restaurant is lovely especially that closed in area I'm sure will be very inviting in the spring and summer with the roof open. The service was very good, the manager was very upbeat and chatty. The food was just ok - nothing special actually one person in our party had to send back the pasta it was so limp terrible they did get another dish of pasta which was find. The bread was so so , the food really nothing special at all.

Great meal, staff is so friendly! We were sorry we missed Tony! They forgot to charge for our bottle of wine, but as honest patrons we informed them and they were so thankful. Great festive night.
