Tony's - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews
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.
I think every medium sized city in the US has a restaurant like Tony's. One that's been around for years, elegant service, great ambience, and legendary food. In St. Louis, it's Tony's. It's the sort of high end restaurant my parents...timeless, not trendy...and a reminder of a time when going out to dinner wa a special occasion, when people dressed for dinner. The food was spectacular, the service impeccable, and the drinks were generous.
This is a great place to dress up for a change and dine like an adult. We particularly liked the asparagus salad, the penne with lobster and shrimp, but everything was delicious. The foise gras topped steak was a treat, and the almond tart for dessert too good to pass up. Service was a little stuffy at first (we are not regulars, who are obvious if you go there), but warmed up as the dinner went on.
Tony"s is the best! The son of the owner, James greeted us at the front door and helped serve our dinner and his father, Vince came by our table to welcome us. We love this place! The dinner was fabulous. Three of us had the trio of veals, one had scallops and one had the halibut special everything was 5*. We started with salad and 1 had the pumpkin soup which were also 5*. WSe had a irthday at our table and were given a comp desert and one other ordered the chocolat chivcolate desert and everyone had a after dinner drink. IT WAS A TOTALLY FAB EVENING! Thank you Tony's for always making our dinners 5*.
