I cannot say enough good things about our dining experience here. It was our first time, we are not from the area and went on a recommendation of a friend, and we are so glad we did.
The food was excellent and plentiful. The service was perfect all around, so welcoming and on point. The ambience was beautiful. It was all around an excellent experience. I cannot recommend them enough.

Excellent food - the oysters and crab cocktail to start were perfect, fresh and generously portioned. Salads were also great. We had an amazing sizzling porterhouse and branzino to share both of which were fantastic. And the outdoor setup was heavenly - felt like we were dining in a garden in Tuscany. And as always, Tony's hospitality makes you feel so welcome. Can't wait to go back!

We came to Tony’s for a birthday celebration. The food, service and ambience were overall good. The portions were large not an issue but we would have ordered less.

The restaurant is beautiful and Tony is the best host. The food is very good but the desserts are lacking. The lava cake has no lava - so I'd pass on desserts. The broccoli is also burnt - so I'd pass on the vegetables as well. In general, however, a very enjoyable place to dine.

I have always loved coming here especially to sit out in their atrium. Today was a bit strange and I wonder if the front male host fully understood the implications of movement. We entered at our time, we get seated immediately which was great, I was bummed that the atrium was shut down for a private party, moving forward they should let folks know when the atrium is closed for private events. We get seated and 8 minutes later the male host asks us to move to another table because the table where we were placed was reserved as part of a larger party. They moved us to a table behind the host. In the interim they moved another group of folks sitting by the door to our original table. Hmmm. Our new table was not dressed appropriately, they had serving trays on the side, it was noisy with the commotion of the host. We immediately requested to move, and nicely they complied. We were moved one table over from our original table. The waiter was great and attentive, the seafood cocktail was ok, honestly I wouldn't order that again. The waffles forester delish, the 3 egg white omelet ok, the crepe with berries were great. We had the mojito cocktail raspberry really good, and the fuego which was delightful. During our time there, the new folks at our old table never interacted with the "party" that the host stated reserved that table, which led me to believe that he lied. He preferred to inconvenience us to accommodate another already seated party. That is not cool at all! Quite frankly, made me want to leave. Not too sure if I will be back.

The food left a lot to be desired. The short rib dumplings were served drowning in balsamic glaze that over powered the flavor of the dumplings. The dumplings were very chewy and had more of a noodle than filling- I expected something more light but the dumpling itself was extremely heavy like a pasta. For the main course I ordered the linguine topped with seafood. The seafood was all cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious the pasta however was at a big giant ball at the bottom of the dish. You can tell the execution was off and whoever cook the meal did not mix the pasta with the sauce when the pasta was finished cooking.
That’s allowed it to clump together- unfortunately.

For all the raves about this place I expected a better meal. I think it’s more a social media driven business then anything. The atmosphere was very loud and busy. The one part of the meal I did love when the blueberry lemonade cocktail.

Delish and magical. Impeccable service. Outside area is beautiful. But it was very crowded outside in case anyone is nervous about that.
Definitely perfect for a special occasion. Pricey but portion size enough fir a 2nd meal today!

A few great things about this place- 1. Their mixed drinks are awesome- I would highly recommend the fuego 2. They have a great raw bar, including oysters, really good crab meat and HUGE pieces of shrimp cocktail 3. Otherwise menu is SUPER eclectic, you have Italian, Sushi, steaks, etc 4. Best of all, Tony is such a great presence, always on the floor greeting everyone warmly, stopping by tables, making sure everyone has drinks- the hospitality and warmth is very evident.

Busy on a Saturday! Service was mediocre. Tony was great making the rounds and making sure everyone was taken care of. Server Edwin was a true gem and made sure we were taken care of since our other server seemed overwhelmed. Expensive dinner but a fun experience! Would recommend and go back!

Went to Tony’s for the first time and waited 2 hours for my food. The service was awful and my waitress new nothing. I have to eat Gluten free and she kept trying to shove a sausage platter in my face. When I asked it it was GF she told me no. I honestly wanted to get up and leave. We only stayed because we had been sitting there for 2 hours hungry. We ended up eating dinner at 10:15 at night. Sad because it’s such a gorgeous ambience and Tony the owner is a gem. He needs better waitresses and good needs to come out on time. That was unacceptable
