My wife and I had an 8 o'clock reservation and arrived about 15 minutes early. We were seated in the bar and had a drink as we waited until we were seated about 20 minutes after 8. Service was very good in the bar and dining room. My wife had the salmon and I had the filet mignon. She thought the salmon was lovely while my medium rare came medium. Staff and management offered to replace it without question although management asked to see the center that he described as medium as well. In that I wanted to eat with my wife, I declined the replacement. Prior to leaving for the night I used the men's room that was out of hand towels.

Service was outstanding. Our server was very attentive and conversational. It was our one year wedding anniversary and the manager even made sure to come by and congratulate us which was a nice personal touch. The only issue we had was that there was only one person working the valet when we left and there was a line of people waiting for their cars. We waited out on the sidewalk for more than 20 minutes to get our car. Otherwise it was a great experience. Highly recommend. Will be back.

The hostess went to seat us and stopped twice to answer the phone. The napkin on the table when we arrived had dried food on it. The steaks, 4 fillets for 4 different people were terrible. The wait staff was very nice and attentive however.

If you are going to talk the talk about being a tip top Steak Place, then you have to walk the walk. My filet, ordered blue rare, came out medium. Spices were good and quality of beef was good. My companion ordered the beefsteak tomato appetizer, a steakhouse standard, listed on the menu, but it was not available.

Need to request a booth when making a reservation. We arrived a half an hour early & would have waited longer for a booth but they couldn’t accommodate the request. Everything else was stellar.

Excellent meal! My wife and I had an anniversary dinner on Saturday nite. Everything was fantastic.
Our server Brandon did a great job.
Steaks were incredible. As was everything else we ordered.
Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced for a top tier restaurant.
Be prepared to eat as the portions are substantial.

Will definitely return
Thanks for a great experience!!

Great atmosphere. Large open room with many tables but you could easily have a conversation and still hear the music playing in the background. Service and food was outstanding. Highly recommend this place for casual business dinners or large group events.

This was the perfect night out. The food was excellent. We had the amazing crab cake, followed by a grilled Caesar salad, NY Strip (with an incredible crust!) and bourbon sweet potatoes. Nothing could have been prepared better. Our waiter was attentive and friendly without being overly so. It really was the ultimate dining experience. We will be going back soon.

Food was good, high quality and fresh. Exactly what I would expect from a fine steakhouse. Nice wine selection and flavorful cocktails. We shared a large shrimp cocktail. It was very good, shrimp were tender and well prepared. We are fed steaks and salmon. All were prepared perfectly. The beat salad was delicious and the haricots with the salmon were perfectly prepared.

The standout here was the service! Best I have received in Indianapolis. I’ve eaten at St Elmo’s , Prime 47 and Harry & Izzy’s. Our waiter Brandon and his team were superior. Close enough to take care of any need that arose yet never hovering or making us feel we were being hurried. He even brought a delicious brûléed cheesecake as we were celebrating a promotion!

This restaurant is worth a visit!

Outstanding service as always. Phenomenal appetizers and shared plates, the calamari and crab cake starters are unreal. The steaks are about the same as you can get anywhere in Indy but the ambience, family-like service, and high-quality appetizers and additions will keep me coming back here.

The live music, food and great service made this place live up to all the great reviews we saw before we got there!! We went for our anniversary and every team member we interacted with congratulated us! Service made the already great food that much better! Thank you to our server Alexander and the gentleman helping the host stand on 10.26 (sorry missed his name). We did wait a bit past our reservation time due to the volume of guests but they went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and got us taken care of as soon as possible! We will be back!

It was our first visit to Tony's and it will likely be our last. The food was very good, but expensive. We expected that however, from a steak house. What did surprise us was that Tony's ambiance is more like a sports bar. There is high energy, a very connected bar scene and lots of tv's, which are visible from the restaurant. I don't really care to spend $50 for a steak and be able to view football games on a tv at the same time.

The restaurant was busy due to downtown events but the staff was well prepared and well trained. Food and service was excellent. Good wine list. Pricing is what one should expect from a high-end, downtown steak house. Reservations recommended. Dress is business casual but plenty of guest were dressed more casual than business.

This was our first time there. We had dinner with friends that really like the restaurant. From the start, all went well. Service at the bar was good, the table we were seated was nice and the service was very good. The appetizers were plentiful and quite tasty, as were the soups and salads. Unfortunately the filet that was presented by the server as so good you can cut it with the fork when made medium rare or rare, didn’t turn out this way. It was overcooked and hard to cut with the knife. This was very disappointing. We will go back to this restaurant, but we hope the kitchen will do a better job.

Arrived on a Sunday night with reservations at 6:30 PM. Waiter wanted us to order ASAP because they wanted to to close at 9:00 PM. We ordered drinks for the four of us and the wine glass looked like a third ofa glass, waiter said that all they meter out. When I ordered a pork chop I was asked how I wanted it, I said a little pink in the middle.
I could hardly cut into the very over done meat! We will never return!

We love Harry and Izzy’s and St. Elmo’s. We went to Tony’s because we could not get a reservation at either. I will call Tony’s first. The steak was incredible and better. The atmosphere was significantly better with live music. Tony’s is my new favorite restaurant. They will be my first call for a reservation.

Took my wife and a client + his wife here on Saturday night. A few reasons for a low rating; 1.) We ordered a round of drinks from the downstairs bar. I ordered bourbon and asked 1 large cube. Bartender said he'd have to go up to the other bar to get it, and looked at me like "Do you really want me to do that?" That answer would be yes, or I wouldn't have asked. 2.) Once we were seated, the waiter asked if we had any time constraints. We did answer no, but this should have been a MAJOR red flag. We ordered appetizers, then Entrees in good time. App came in good time, but dinner did not come out for nearly 90 minutes. Our server was apologetic, but manager only came to apologize after my wife went to the kitchen entrance to talk to him. She gave him an earful. He comped a round of drinks. They did take a significant amount of $ off of our bill, but I feel like that was only after we complained a 2nd and 3rd time, nicely, that we were not enthused about our experience.

The experience was wonderful. We have dined at fine restaurants and the portions at Tony’s are bountiful. The atmosphere and dining was excellent. We highly recommend. Brandon was our waiter and did a great job. The crab cake appetizer was a meal in itself. Excellent! We had a salad and the crab bisque which were wonderful. My wife had a pasta dish and I had the filet. Both were prepared to perfection. We had a yellow cake for dessert and took home half our meal because the portions were so large. If you are trying to select a restaurant in Indy fine dining if you don’t select Tony’s you’ve made a wrong choice. It was a fun atmosphere, excellent service, great food and a great time. Highly recommend!!
