St Louis is fortunate to have this outstanding restaurant which has been in the same family for more than 70 years. Tony's is the place to be seen. It is that special first class restaurant which provides all that anyone could ask for in a dining experience. The service is excellent (Carlos was our server who sets the standard for quality service) and the food is totally delicious. The dining room is inviting, comfortable, and elegant . I strongly recommend this very special restaurant. Garry Waters

After all the years still our favorite restaurant in St. Louis. Nobody gives you better service.
The food it tops in our area. Always great fish choices as well as sea food. Lobster special on the menu for more than 50 years. Starched white linens, the best veal ever, great wine selections and save room for desert!

You just can’t beat Tony’s for a special occasion meal in St. Louis. From the moment you enter the building, the service is impeccable...matched only by the food. I brought my husband here for the first time, and now he’s hooked. Can’t wait to go back!

Repeating this tradition for over 25 years. It was good to see Tony. The food was flavorful yet lacked the delivery from the past. The technique of transfer from the simmering station to the plated stage was rough. When laid upon the plate it was "dumped" versus placed and pleasantly organized. While visual has nothing to do with taste it is directly related to the price and experience. We could hear the wait staff openly complaining which detracted from the romance we were there for; we could've stayed home and listened to the grandkids fuss. We received the wrong bottled water, messy butter chunks which actually had debris of some sort, falling off the plate onto the beautifully starched white table linen. I requested smaller portions which were guaranteed however the serving size seemed to be large. We would like to see an option for smaller plates offered. At the end of the day we weren't certain that we would make a special trip to have dinner at Tony's but if we are in town, we will return..no questions asked.

As always Tony's has wonderful ambience, service and food. It has the perfect lighting where you feel you are only dining with the few people at your table The noise level is excellent You can hear each other even with poor hearing. Tony's restaurant is still run by Vince Bommarito who makes the rounds of his customers. The chef comes to your table when your are about to leave to ask if everything was to your satisfaction and if there are any suggestions. Pricey but worth the drive

My only concern was that after we attended Tony's that I got an email that stated that they were not honoring my points for booking through Open Table. Considering that our bill was over $1000 that this was a really cheap shot from the management of Tony's. And why inform me after the meal???

The staff at Tonys makes you feel like family every time that we visit. It is our favorite place to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and any romantics occasion in bereeen. Tonys is as much a St Louis tradition as a Cardinals game. Everyone should experience Tonys at least once.

Fun for a foodie. I got so full. The spinach was cold and it was heated up table side. As quick as it was done it really didn't get heated up. They would have fixed it but I had to save room for dessert. Wine waiter very nice.

Attended a conference in St.Louis selected Tony's from open table. From service to presentation this restaurant has exceeded every restaurant I have ever been to. The food was amazing and one of the most enjoyable bonuses of the night was having Vincent B. Visit our table. Dining at this restaurant is a must.

Very difficult to write anything less than a 5 star review for this iconic institution and I have delayed writing this for several days for that reason.......but based on our recent experience, Tony's may have passed it's prime. On the positive side, the food was stellar. On every front. perfectly cooked and seasoned.

What suffered was the service. Staff seemed to be just going through the motions and the expected, perfectly orchestrated service just wasn't there. Staff was clearly stressed even though the room was just over 1/2 full; the table was not kept "current" (i.e. silver was not replaced, menus left on table, etc.); drink order was not filled; no ground pepper offered for salad; we ordered dessert and were then brought a piece of "anniversary cake" that we didn't order (and was completely unremarkable in the flavor department) . Perhaps most annoying was one particular server's need to tell us (at length) about his distaste for seafood as he served our seafood appetizers!

In my mind, the value (and fun) of Tony's was always to get the best of both worlds; perfectly cooked and presented food coupled with equally stellar service. If either component is missing, Tony's is just another restaurant.....and based on our recent experience, I'm worried that's what has happened.

We went there for our anniversary and the service was just outstanding. Which is really nice because whenever we spring for fine dining I kind of feel like a redneck who doesn’t belong, but at Tony’s I was made to feel very welcome. I would recommend this restaurant for the service alone. But their food was excellent as well. Best scallops I have ever had in my life, same with their soup (tomato bisque).

We celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary at Tony's on Saturday, October 6. It was our first time at the restaurant. The staff was extremely courteous and efficient. The menu had Happy Anniversary printed on it and we were treated to a little cake with candle and Happy Anniversary card. Vince came to our table to wish us Happy Anniversary and we took a photo. It was a lovely anniversary evening.

My husband had lobster and shrimp pasta. The lobster was rather tough and the shrimp very small. The sauce was pretty rich. I had the vegetable pasta. The vegetables were chopped so small that they were not very tasty and the pasta was a bit gummy but flavorful.

When we return, we will probably have steak or fish. All in all, however, we enjoyed our evening and will return for another special occasion, hopefully with our family.

We have been going to Tony's for years, and now live in Chicago. We try to stop in when we are back in St. Louis. The food and service is top notch, and while not cheap, it is still relatively reasonable compared to its quality. A meal like this would cost significantly more in Chicago or NYC.

Exceptional service and food! I’m not sure you will receive a more attentive waitstaff anywhere else, the owner even comes by to check on you and say hello. The food was amazing, from appetizers to dessert. The wine list has a large variety of Italian wines, we opted for a Napa Cabernet and it did not disappoint.
