Best seafood in the DC area. Each dish is well conceived, prepared and presented. The vegetables that are included with the entrees are creative as well as delicious, and would be priced a la carte at most restaurants of this caliber. Friendly (but not invasive) service. Reasonably priced for the quality and the beautiful setting overlooking the Potomac. Tips: The $11 mixed greens salad with grape tomato, goat cheese, almonds, apples, and champagne vinaigrette fills a dinner plate -- two people can share. Italian lemon cream cake is fabulous and is served with a mound of real whipped cream and fresh berries.

Beautiful ambience. But service that particular night was sub par. Starting with the hostess immediately asking before seating us if we were using a groupon? (We were not,but if we were there is a tact in asking) one person spilled a good amount of my fiancee’s drink on the menu, and another dropped rolls almost in his lap. We had to ask several times for things and it wasn’t busy at all. If the food wasn’t absolutely perfect to us this review would
Be much lower.

Great everything, but a false but very annoying fire alarm went off for a significant portion of the meal. Not cool, and no gesture made to apologize or compensate. If the food and service wasn't superb, I would have marked them down considerably. Hopefully, the errant alarm gets repaired pretty fast.

When we got there, the lady at the reception seemed like she was so out of it and was least bit interested in being there. it was a week night and wasn't even crowded. It seemed like a very quiet day for the restaurant. I didn't pay much heed, but our server was good, a little less judgmental guy i'd say. Some how a different server showed up at our table towards the end of our meal and when i requested for dessert menu, his prompt response was, "Do you have a groupon?" I didn't know what his question meant and i asked if i couldn't dine there without a groupon or if he had a different menu for those with a groupon. He seemed flustered at that point because i called him out of course. I think it was just bizarre. A. a good server would offer me a dessert menu B. when they don't and the customer requests for it, you don't ask them how would they be paying, full or partial with groupon. My experience in terms with their customer service was bad, i don't think i'll ever go back, that said, arctic char and baked sea bass were delicious. The dessert was good too.

Both of our meals were exceptional, i.e. the sea bass and the blackened redfish. Our server, Alan, could not have been better. It was a wonderful pre-Valentine's dinner at an exceptional value.

The food was phenomenal but the service started out below average . We received bread without saucers . Our waiter laughed about how the guys where preparing for brunch and being lazy with current duties as we had to ask for silverware . Our service improved by the time our entrees arrived which upgraded our overall experience .

I believe that we picked the perfect Sunday, Superbowl Sunday to go to Tony & Joe's. Although we had reservations, we could have walked up and been seated. The place was not crowded at all. The staff was attentive and proficient. The food was plentiful and fresh. The location was great with a great view of the river. In my opinion the price, $49 pp, is a bit steep for brunch, but if you have the dollars to spend GO

This is our second time there and went on a Groupon. It was a very good deal. The pork chop and the salmon were both very good. The salad was excellent. We did not have room for dessert and brought it home. Without the Groupon, the meal would have been overpriced but feel it was a great value for what we did pay.

Used a groupon coupon and maybe that’s why the experience was less satisfying. More than average amount of food but of middling quality. The selection was less than implied on the offering. The waiter was not very enthusiastic. Funny thing was when the check came the “value” of the included house wine was much higher than their regular menu wines (they show the value for tip purposes). Waiter brought us the check while we were still eating and then checked the tip amount while we were still sitting there! Sorry there are too many good restaurants to chose from to go back.

We have been coming to Tony and Joes since before they remodeled years ago. Not many place you can view the DC waterline at the Potomac, and have a great meal. They are one of my go-to spots for special occasions and when friends come to visit.

The food is very very good, and very predictable. The only thing I would change is to add a few new items every now and then. Also, the bar is not really up to speed on the latest smokey drinks and special cocktails.

We will continue to visit and enjoy the view and great dishes.

My table was closer to the back of the dining area but still offered a great view. The servers were polite and attentive but not over the top. I never felt rushed or unwanted. The food came out quickly (I guess dinner for two is easy and fast). The food was great and the portions were filling.

Great location and view. Food was just ok; nothing special. Service was flat, unfriendly. The hostess literally said nothing as she escorted us to the table. The waiter was like a cater waiter. Bland, boring, dull meal. I will say that in the summer time the outdoor bar is a lively, fun space. Too bad this meal such a dud. Much better options nearby.

I hadn't been to this place in over 5 years and I was surprised to see the food was still great. Our server was non-existant but that may have been due to the fact we had a groupon, never the less my overall experience was pretty good.
