We were celebrating our anniversary and hoped to enjoy a quality meal. The texture of the lettuce of the Greek salad included with the meal seemed as though it had been marinated in the dressing in advance. The presentation of the salads (my husband ordered the Caesar) and the Entrees was underwhelming. One would expect a much more pleasing plate to reflect the establishment’s reputation and charges. The two positive things I can say about Tony’s is that there is excellent service, despite staffing challenges all around, and the portions were decent.

Wonderful food plus great service equals the perfect evening. Our favorite steakhouse in the Cincinnati region as Tony's provides better value than all other upscale competitors. For an appetizer, try the crab-cakes. They are as good as ones found in Maryland. Kevin, the GM, goes above and beyond to make the experience at Tony's special.

The food was excellent- the steaks were cooked perfectly and the calamari was fantastic. The service was also very good. The music was a little louder than what I would expect, but overall a place we would certainly go back to.

A great meal with great service. So good to see restaurants lively again.
Kyle was our server--friendly, professional, attentive, but not overly so.
I had a filet with carmelized onions--it was cooked to (my) perfection, tender, flavorful.
We were welcomed warmly, checked on by the manager, and enjoyed people watching as well as our meal. From cocktail(Aperol Spritz) to dessert (Bonbonarie Opera Cream Cake), a thoroughly pleasant experience.

The food and service is always exceptional. I would place Tony's at the upper echelon of restaurants. I've never had a bad meal, bad service, or a bad experience dining here. To the contrary, Tony's should be the standard that all restaurants strive to become. Best restaurant in Cincinnati, hands down.

Overall, our experience was ok. I will give a shout out to our server (I think her name was Jen) She was amazing! Friendly, polite, efficient, and very professional! Thank You for that! Unfortunately, after spending over $300 for 2 of us, I feel like it should have been overall outstanding. We were sat 30 minutes after our initial reservation time of 7:30pm. They were packed, totally understandable, but you make reservations for a certain time for certain reasons. And watching 5 other parties being sat before us was a little disturbing. Being a mother of five kids 5 yrs old and under, babysitting isn't cheap. So thinking a simple dinner date of maybe two hours at a nice place would be ok. After being sat we did receive good service. I was confused though when I placed my reservations online, I requested a house bottle of wine at the table. We had to order that with dinner. Maybe there was an oversight of the request. No big deal. But we waited, and waited, and waited some more for appetizers then salads, then soup, then our entrees. The food was good, except when the main entrees came out the barley was cold and in my opinion just gross. Our server replaced it with mashed potatoes that were great! My husband received his complimentary dessert which was also delicious! Thank You! I had heard so many great things about Tony's which is why I chose you for my husbands birthday dinner. We were just underwhelmed with the overall experience for our first time and after spending the amount we did, we will probably think twice about coming back. I understand busy, but after 3 and a half hours for a dinner date, it was a little excessive.

Servers were wonderful, Heather was outstanding, and the team watch over to clear away dishes routinely. Noise level was a little high. Managers were present but seems rush in asking how things were. Food was fabulous as always, filet barrel cut and sea bass is amazing (had some big pieces of ginger that could have been tamed down a bit. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

Came here for a birthday dinner and while the food definitely was superb the service was inattentive, slow, sloppy and we were very disappointed in the whole experience. To make matters worse the manager on duty stopped by to check on every single table around us, but wouldn't even make eye contact with us. Very disappointed in that type of treatment since had he checked in with us I am sure our slow service issues could have been resolved.

We had a party of 6 for dinner on a Wednesday. Tony’ had a full house that night. The service was a bit slow to get our drinks and wine. The service was fine after that. Everyones meal was delicious, prepared perfectly, arrived together.
Will return and will recommend Tony’s.

The food is ok. The prices set an expectation of excellence however that just wasn't the case. Our salads came before the appetizer. The appetizer finally came and 2 seconds later our entre came. By time we got to eat our steaks, they were no longer hot. The steaks are mediocre and I've had much better. So just be aware that higher prices don't always mean better.

I am a seafood guy. This place has a crab cake second to none including places on the Maryland coast. Then there is the crab bisque which is like dying and going to heaven. Finally, you can not go wrong with the seabass for your entree. You would have to catch one to top the freshness and flavor. And, without a doubt, drinks come in generous portions.

We had just a group of 4 people and drove down from one of the smaller towns about 30 miles north looking for a great meal. We all felt the food was just average for the cost. We made it fairly clear that we did have an early morning and a longer drive home than normal so we wanted a great experience however not overly drawn out. That definitely did not happen as expected. With that said again for the cost of the meal and two upper end bottles of wine we felt that the service was lacking a bit. Add to it they brought one of us the incorrect steak all together.
