What...an...Experience! My wife and I came again to Tony's for a simple dinner date and were treated as if we were regulars. We began our conversation with our server, Matthew, talking about the upgrades made to the restaurant/bar area, wine selection (Emmolo!), and meals offered--BEFORE even seeing a menu. After receiving our drinks, we were giving our menus and we felt as if we knew everything on it including how it is prepared. I order the Rib-eye and my wife had the Sea Bass. FANTASTIC! Creme Brulee for dessert--Outstanding! We were there for approximately 2 hours 45 minutes--and it seemed like 45 minutes as we were enjoying ourselves so much. We never felt rushed. Thanks for a wonderful experience and can't wait for our next visit. Tim and Karen.

Great meal. Renovations are in progress but not intrusive to the experience. Next time I am hitting the bar area to eat. It’s expanded and still crowded.

Another incredible dining experience at Tony's. Between the Indianapolis, Lexington, and Cincinnati locations, I have yet to have anything but the best meals ever. I can't wait to go back.

Outstanding experience, as always. The service is great!The Yellow Fin Tuna and sea bass is outstanding! Great salmon as well! The steaks are cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the Dallas Clark New York Strip or the Rib-eye! This restaurant has great salads and fresh veggies (asparagus). The wine selection is extensive! Highly recommend this restaurant for date, business meetings or special occasions.

One of the best bone-in Ribeye's I have ever had. My wife went for a date night to get away from the house/kids and it was well worth the trip. Service was top notch, and Paul went out of his way to make sure that we had an enjoyable first trip. We will be back. And I will get the ribeye again. :)

The food and service were outstanding! It’s very noisy for a fine dining establishment. The ambiance is like a classy pub with expensive (but worth every penny) steaks. We will go back for the food but will avoid it if we are looking for an intimate quiet dinner for two.

Very disappointed in the food after hearing race reviews. My filet mignon was dry, although being cooked medium, and my husbands salmon was dry as well.
Did not say anything because our service (David), was outstanding and didn’t want to make him feel as if it were his fault in some way.

I have previously recommended Tony's to many friends and colleagues, and have argued that Tony's does a better job than the Ruby-owned restaurants; however, my opinion has changed after my last few visits.

My last two visits (taking my staff out for dinner) have been "only OK" with steaks that were good, not outstanding, and the same can be said of the service. I chalked it up to the size of the group.

We recently took my teenage son out for a celebratory dinner, and we decided to go to Tony's. We were seated at a table where the AC was blowing continuously. My wife is always hot, and it was cold enough that she almost agreed to having me get a sports sweatshirt out of the car and put over her dress. In addition, we were right in the middle of two large groups, and due to the acoustics, we could not hear one another across the table.

Ok, so bad luck on seating and temperature. There is no excuse for subpar food. When I order steak at mid-level restaurants, I have no expectations that they will be cooked right to my request, but when I order a $70 steak from a restaurant that focuses on steak, I expect it to be done right. A medium steak should not be a bloody mess. On the opposite end, my wife and son's steaks were over cooked.

All in all, three suboptimal experiences is more than enough, particularly when you are dropping over $100 per person. In the future, it is back to Carlo and Johnny's.

The food and service were excellent! I did miss the live music and it was quite loud. My husband and I had trouble being heard. I would love to have some vegetarian or vegan options. Overall, a wonderful experience! I

The only complaint was my Apple Martini, usually they are the best in town. But they quite sweet that evening. So on the second one I ask for them to make it not so sweet. Then they added soda water I believe or something fizzy instead of vodka. But the food and service was excellent as usual.

Service was superb. Matthew was attentive and understanding and dealt with special requests with ease and skill. The steaks were perfect. The lamb chops were a little underdone(too rare) but I was afraid to send back that they would be too well done. The grilled lettuce was very wet and way too smoky for my taste and the salad with the tuna tartar was extremely spicy almost to the point of inedible. This is a steak place and the steaks were super. I gave an excellent rating overall but in the end some of the food was not up to the standard that I believe Tony's should be at.

asked on open table under special instructions for a booth if possible as the couple with us he is 90% deaf and a booth works out for him to hear us talk. It was not in use at the time we got there . We were seated at a table in the middle of 3 large parties. I asked the gentleman that was walking around a tall man in a suite w/gym shoes if we could have the booth he said it was reserved and told me I should have requested it when I made the reservations . I told him I did a week and a half ago. We had Matthew as our waiter he did a good job but I think he to many tables to work. We waited a long time for drinks and a longer time for the salad and longer time for the main course. We got there at 7;05 and did not leave till 9:20. The steaks were great but very slow getting to us. I don't know if Matthew forget to put our order in . We love to come to Tonys and will be back. I hope Tony will be there some Sat. night it has been a long time sense we have seen him. Don & Geri Doerger

Jessica our server was excellent. Kevin and Mike the dining room managers were very attentive as was the server assistants.
Very good food. I recommend the whipped sweet potato as a side, thanks Jessica. We never felt rushed and enjoyed our experience immensely. Once you become a customer you'll be writing a review just like this.

In Cincinnati for business and decided to give Tony's a try. Interior was very nice nothing outstanding but very nice. I had made a reservation and was quickly shown to my seat. The service was outstanding from beginning to end as our drinks were consistently filled and our needs met. The food was perfectly prepared and the taste was excellent. The value compared to other high end eateries was excellent as the salad and potato was included with the steak. There was plenty of parking. Overall I enjoyed the experience and would dine again when in the area.
