The servers were attentive and accomodating, but not intrusive. All 6 meals were excellent, but the halibut was the hit of the night.

The food is excellent, but we had a 7:45 PM reservation and were not seated until 9 PM. By that time, I was on the phone trying to find another high-end restaurant that would still take us on a Saturday night for a birthday dinner. The wait was ridiculous. The manager explained that they allow 2 1/2 hours for each reservation and that people had finished but we’re not leaving their tables. Probably should be invited to l”retire to the bar” when they have other reservations waiting. Or perhaps Tony’s should adopt the two seatings practice of high-end restaurants in major international cities. Anyway, we will never go back on or Saturday night. For our excruciating wait, we were offered free dessert. Since we were going to get one for dessert for the birthday dinner anyway, that was minuscule. Back to the great food – – a special white asparagus appetizer with blue cheese, pasta with duck and mushrooms, veal chop — all delish. Pate appetizer disappointing texture and taste.

St. Louis dining does not get better than this. Every meal is prepared with care and tastes incredible. The Service is by far the best I have received at any restaurant, even outside of STL. Our waiter Carlos does whatever he can to make the special occasions, truly special. I would recommend Tony's to any and everyone.

Best Restaurant in town! I haven’t been in a Italian restaurant with this quality of service and food before. The owner takes time to come to your table to say hello and good bye. Menu was with lot of options and all of them very good. Service was outstanding. It worth every penny!

This is a must stop if you are in St. Louis. The food, ambiance and service are first class and all of that is topped by the 87 year old owner, Vinnie, stopping by the table twice to ask us how everything is going. He has owned Tony's for 70 years and is the true example of how to run a business;stop by and say hello and thank your customers. I will definitely go back next time I am in the city

A review from me would not be fair; 40 years ago I worked there with Vince. This was, and is, a fantastic place; a great family, great people. Vince. Ken. Donny. Service is out of this world. Great menu. If you are visiting St. Louis, you have to "dine" with Vince at Tony's.

Thank you Vince for being the man I remember and enjoyed working with. Thank you Ken and Donny for remembering me. And thank you Bruce for taking care of my Big brother and me.

The owner, the son of “Tony” cane by to visit with us a few times - great advice on the menu, and fun to learn some of the history of the restaurant. The food and wine were fabulous! It was “morels” season (I probably misspelled the name of the delicious mushroom) and the recommendation to try the dish did not disappoint! The scallops appetizer was delicious, as was the halibut special.

We were told by friends that this was a "must visit" location and we are very glad we went! Indeed, it was not to be missed. It was truly an "experience"! The food and service was outstanding......as was the price! It was certainly overpriced but that's to be expected when paying for an experience.

Tony's is a St. Louis institution and this visit reminded us why. Food, service and ambiance are excellent. Just hoping it can survive the significant changes taking place with an emphasis on casual dining. This is fine dining at its best with prices to match. But worth it for special occasions or times when you feel like just "going out nice". They seem to be holding it together despite the loss of the man who had been running the room for the past 5 years, Vince Jr. His brother James just seems uncomfortable in this position and unfortunately Vince Sr. has lost his step in commanding the dining room. While this does not impact the enjoyment of the food and ambiance, for regulars it is a pretty big hole.

I ordered tomato soup, fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp, and an almond tart.

It tastes like any other fettuccine Alfredo that you can get from Olive Garden or Italian restaurant it was very underwhelming. Plus it made me feel sick right after. The soup was good, but nothing quiet hit the spot. The service was great, but without good food there isn’t really much of a restaurant. I have no idea why this place gets so much recognition, it’s just boujie and has original modern art on the walls.

Wonderful as always. One of our most favorite restaurants in the world. Old school ambiance, old school service, exquisite cuisine. From the time Ken greets you at the front, and escorts you to your table, you are in for a wonderful dining experience. This evening we shared the seared scallop appetizer with a beure blanc sauce. Yum. The lobster albenello is always my favorite, and did not disappoint. Great wine list as well. Our "go to " spot in St. Louis for a romantic evening. No visit is complete without a visit by Mr. Bommarito himself.

This is "old school" done well.
Tony's is a venerable institution in St. Louis (according to Vincent, the gentlemen who stopped by our table, Tony's has been in business for 90 years). Immecable service. Ambience will seem slightly dated to some; comfortably quaint to others. Everything we ordered was prepped perfectly. Note that this is not a place where you'll find a lot of vegetarian / vegan options (there are a few) and the menu palate is like going back to 1975. No complaints about that - this is "upscale comfort food" brilliantly executed. Just don't go expecting nouvelle cuisine. Wine list is fairly short for a high-end restaurant - perhaps 60-ish choices - and leans to very expensive bottles. But, there are a number of very good choices in the $45-80 range. After two courses we were stuffed and didn't have dessert, but the choices were tempting.

Tony's is still one of the best in St. Louis. We arrived early but our table was ready in less than a few minutes. Our table captain was Alan and he was terrific. I had not been to Tony's for many years and my wife had never been there, Service and food were just great. She opted for the signature Lobster Avallino(?sp). It was excellent. I had the fish special, Grilled Halibut. A beautiful piece of fish prepared perfectly. Will not wait so many years to go back. Thank you Tony's for a wonderful evening.

Classic old school restaurant where service still matters. From the moment we walked into Tony's, everyone was super attentive to our needs. From the table side preparation of our salads to the main entry, nothing was missed. Even Tony himself came around and introduced himself, thanked us for coming and wanted to make sure everything was outstanding. Do not miss this gem!

Vince Bommarito's "Tony's" has been a decades long "GEM" of St. Louis! I have been going since a young teenager and now I entertain clients, friends and my wife for special occasions! Once again last week a table for 8 was perfect, food magical in taste and quality! Vince came out and greeted us personally! A perfect dining experience. Thanks for making it special.
