It shouldn’t take over a half an hour to finally have the manager notice we wanted the checks and hadn’t been refilled on our wine glasses or waters. The service started great and became terrible. We will likely all choose somewhere different because of this even though the food was great.

I had assumed that restaurants along the waterfront must be overpriced and tourist-oriented, so I had never visited Tony & Joe's until a Groupon proved irresistible. I'm so glad we went. We were graciously welcomed and seated by the window, with a view of the Potomac from Memorial Bridge to Key Bridge. The service was impeccable, and the food imaginatively prepared and delicious. The Groupon constrained only the first course and dessert (two options each course, per person), and between us, we tried all of them (delicious). The main course allowed almost everything on the menu, and we chose two finfish entrees. Both were excellent and the portions large enough that we took leftovers home. A wonderful, even romantic, experience. A glass of wine per person was included, although not even mentioned in the Groupon announcement, if I recall correctly. (The choice was limited to one red or one white offering per person.)

I would highly recommend Tony & Joes. I had the Shrimp and Grits and my husband had the Salmon. Best meal we've had in a very long time. Everything was perfect for our Pre-Valentine's Dinner.

Only suggestion would be a better veggie options. Yes, I know it's a seafood restaurant, but sometimes, in a group of 5 people who want seafood, one person is a vegetarian.

The food was good! Service was terrible-we we’re there for an early dinner before seeing a show at the Kennedy Center, and the place was empty, so you’d expect to have excellent, attentive service. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. We were never offered refills of our drinks because the server never returned until well after we were finished eating.

Everything was wonderful, food, service, wait-staff until a table of 6 or 7 was set up right next to ours. The people were having a great time, laughing, talking loud and dismissive of other patrons. All of a sudden, a great night of eating and conversing in a quiet atmosphere was ruined. My table was the second one occupied in the restaurant at the time we arrived. There must have been another place for the loud party or, if it was a reserved party, like mine, then we should have been seated somewhere else in anticipation of the other party's arrival. We ended up leaving sooner than we had anticipated.0

We loved Tony and Joe’s. It is a beautiful restaurant on the Georgetown Waterfront. Our waiter was very attentive, and the salad, bread, and broiled mahi mahi with broccoli i, carrots and s cheesy risotto were terrific. I loved the lemon cake , and my husband enjoyed the brownie with ice cream. Oh, and our Groupon came with two excellent glasses of wine. We will definitely be back for another dinner!

The food was forgettable! Gumbo was so spicy, it was inedible. Baked Cod was a disappointment. It was clearly frozen. Fish was tasteless except for the huge amount of red pepper heaped on top. Even the salmon was mediocre. The service was attentive, but since the food was not appetizing, we will not return. Tony & Joe might invest in better fish, better recipes, and better chefs.

We were late for our reservation but received probably some of the best service I’ve ever experienced. Our server was right on top of making sure we got our dinner. She knew exactly what to offer because we were using a groupon and it went perfectly.

We enjoyed a view of the Potomac River and the Kennedy Center while dining here. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. The server was attentive and friendly. We used a Groupon for two - 3 course meals (plus two glasses of house wine), which was an outstanding value!

I requested a table with a river view and that was exactly what we got. Our waiter was fantastic. None of us are big eaters, so it was a little pricey for what we ate. The noise level was high, but there is a lot of glass and Sunday brunch is popular, so that’s to be expected. Overall a very nice brunch.

With Groupon, it's an excellent deal and you don't have to wait for restaurant week. Service, food and ambiance are great with easy access from Georgtown or Kennedy Center. A+

Went with my husband and kids. Got to our table and I was seated in front of a plant that was hovering from behind. The table was round and had the small leaf that were not properly fitted. We asked to be moved. We were there a good 7 minutes before someone came to the table. Once seated at another table we waited about another 5-8 minutes before our waiter came. Took our drink order and appetizers. Nothing terrible there. Main course arrived and I had to send back the pork chop because it wasn’t thoroughly cooked. Kids enjoyed the broccoli and carrots while we waited for the chop to come back. Our meal was done and our waiter never asked us how the food was. We saw him a total of three times during our meal. We waited a long while to get our check. We paid our bill and before we even got our belongings the waiter was rushing to grab the check. He reached over my husband while he was trying to get his coat on. It was just rude behavior all the way around.

We dined on a Sunday evening at 7:30 so quiet in restaurant except for arguing couple at close by table. I had the mahi-mahi which was delicious but my two companions were not impressed with their crab cake sandwiches. One of them found pieces of shell in the crab. Both said it was rather tasteless. Wait staff seemed a little rushed and unfriendly thru the meal even though restaurant not busy. But didn’t rush us out at end of meal. Overall it was a pleasant atmosphere at our window table where we could see ice skaters and Christmas decorations outside. Will possibly return again.

First time at the restaurant.. salmon and shrimp and crab dip are amazing..but the Chesapeake Boil was less than desirable.. it was mediocre at best.. no crabs or crab legs available.. my cocktail tasted different on the 2nd round.. the prices were a little high for the quality..

Thanksgiving dinner was delightful...and got to meet "Tony". Will definitely do this again. Oysters galore, smoked salmon, the whole nine yards. Concierge picked a nice table for us facing the water. Good time was had by many.
