Tony's - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews
I have been lucky enough to visit Tony's for nearly 10 years as a guest of my friend. Now I have been able to come back myself for special occasions and don't plan on stopping! The food is excellent, and you are treated like royalty. It seems some reviewers are mistaken by the type of restaurant Tony's is, by complaining about 'poor service' due to a long wait between courses. This is not the place for a quick bite--rather a place to enjoy your food and long conversation with good company. These waiters have been in the game for many many years, some for decades, so they know what they are doing. Tip: Don't show up in jeans or short sleeves! You will no doubt be out of place. I suggest slacks and a blazer minimum to 'fit in'
We have dined here on numerous occasions and the food and service is always exceptional. We have to drive 100 miles to get to the restaurant and the trip is always worth it. The owner, Vince Bommarito, always comes to our table and always remembers us. A great restaurant for special occasions or to impress a date.
Year after year, Tony's is always exceptional! This time we dined for no particular occasion, and it made us wonder again, why we don't visit once a month. Yes, it's a great place for special occasions, but equally wonderful when you just deserve to be treated royally -- and with exceptional cuisine.
Last Saturday, my boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary together. After doing some research for the nicest restaurants in St. Louis, Tony's was at the top of many lists that I saw. After looking at a few restaurant's menus, Tony's menu looked the most unique and appetizing. We had such a wonderful dinner. It was romantic, intimate, and the service was outstanding. Above all, the food was incredible. We absolutely will be returning for future celebrations and bringing more family along to experience what Tony's has to offer.
We booked this restaurant to host our office holiday dinner and it was very disaapointing. The waiter never introduced himself, his service was slow and he was very unattentive. The appertizers were good, not great, the salads were nothing special and then we waited for over 45 minutes after our salads for the entrees. I ordered black grouper that was overdone and dry. One of my staff ordered the dover sole at my recommendation and it was very dry and cold. My husband and another staff member order the quail and filet combo. The quail was overcooked and dry and the filet was overdone. In addition, we ordered the linquine with shrimp and lobster to be shared at the table and the waiter came over and told me that they had made the order with penne pasta and he asked me if that would be okay. I told him no, that we wanted the linquine and he said it would take a little longer. We said that would be fine and when they brought it after the rest of the meal, it was the appertizer order, not the entree order that we requested. When I told our waiter, he apologized, but never offered to correct it. We had to ask the busboy to find our waiter to order wine and it took him 10 minutes to find our waiter. This is not the type of service or food quality we expected from a well known, 5 star restaurant. Our bill was well over $800, which is ridiculous for below average food and service. We would never go back and were appalled at the cost/value considering that St. Louis is a food mecca of fine dining. Guess we chose the wrong place to go.
poor service for a restaurant that prides itself on good service and fresh food. Waitstaff were overwhelmed and clearly not happy to be doing their job. Failure to refill wine and water glasses (okay at a lesser restaurant). Swordfish tasteless which suggests it could be frozen tho we were assured it was fresh. Bread is mediocre. Wine glasses are not appropriate for the varietal served. Tony's is past its prime. There are better restaurants at same price point who care about their patrons and the quality of their food.
My food was fair, but others at the table commended their food. The service was very slow--4 hours for a 3-course meal with an added dessert. Altogether, the experience was not worth what I paid for it. I will resist going again and will look for other restaurants for special occasions.
Went for New Years Eve. Seated promptly as our reservation. All staff courteous and on spot with service. Food was terrific. We were allowed to relax and did not feel rushed at all.This is the 2nd time we have been to Tony's. I will go back . A bit noisy, but it was New Years.
Tony’s is a favorite for more than 25 years on sporadic trips to STL. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, I suppose—if you disdain dinner conversation, dressing up a bit, being treated with care from the minute you arrive, and dining on traditional favorites, then go somewhere else where you can get cacophony with your overdone steak. Tony’s is class in all senses. The scampi and lobster tail is as great as the first time I ordered the dish. The risotto is always a highlight of the evening. The serving staff is friendly with being familiar and they know their business of treating diners with attention without being intrusive. Maybe this is your parents’ or grandparents’ restaurant, but it’s still a great dining experience. The sole regret is that Mr. Bommarito was not in the house to stop by the table. Hope he feels better soon.
Always superb! The trio of veals is my favorite entre. The chilled white asparagus salad was delicious. The service is impeccable with multiple servers assigned to assist the "captain" for each table. This is one of our favorite places to eat. It is more expensive, but worth it.
Probably one of the best meals I’ve had in awhile. Started with the scallops and they were sooooo good can’t wait to go back for those again. Husband got the veal and eggplant and I got the shrimp and lobster linguine. I preferred my dish way more but his was still delicious if you are a veal fan! Service was top notch and the table side service was unlike any other dinner experience.
Old school in every way. If you like food prepared in a very traditional manner, this is your place. My husband loved the food, and his meat was cooked to perfection. It is too traditional and rich for me...Ambiance is very traditional, boring. Service is superb: wait staff is extremely attentive, couldn’t be better. I think Our waiter was named Adam - try asking for him
It had been awhile since we dined at Tony’s. Without a doubt the food is the best in Saint Louis. There were five of us this evening and each person ordered a different entree. The superlatives were given for each individual’s dinner. Mr. Bommarito and his sons all visited our table at various times to speak to us and make sure that the service and food lived up to our expectations. No matter if you dine at Tony’s frequently or have not been there for awhile you will always find a great restaurant with an excellent staff and superb food. Obviously it won’t be long before we return again.
