Tony’s is head and shoulders above the best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. Yes, it’s pricey, but well worth it for splurges or special occasions. I highly recommend the crab cake or any one of their steaks.

Great meal before the Cats game. Started with the crab cake and was really good. Presented as one large cake and was quite delicious. Really glad we ordered the crab cake. My wife and I both had the NY Strip and it was cooked perfectly. Nice crust, very tender, great streak overall and one of the better strips I have had. Great restaurant in Lexington.

Service and the food were fantastic!
Best meal that I've had in a while, and I travel for work.
Very loud but was a Friday evening.
Highly recommend.
Old fashioned left some room for improvement was my only complaint.

There was nothing bad about Tony’s, it just wasn’t great, given the prices. The service was great, there are just so many other options, with creative, tapas options without the high price tag. It’s a bit overrated for me.

We just moved from Austin to Lexington four months ago and love Tony's. This is not a cheap meal, but their steaks are absolutely great. Fantastic service, good ambiance. A little bit loud, but this has become our go-to spot when out of towners come in. We have dined at Tony's half a dozen times and it absolutely will not disappoint.

Great food, great atmosphere! Best steak hands down. Could cut my steak with a fork! Pricey, but well worth it! For 2 people who only got soda, 2 steaks and 3 sides...it was $117 without tip. So not to bad.

My husband I and I tried Tony's for the first time for his birthday celebration. From beginning to end the service was excellent. Our waiter, Kyler, knew it was our first time visiting and made sure we had the full Tony's experience with lots of suggestions. He was very attentive, and we were able to enjoy our evening without feeling rushed. The crab cake was to die for, and the creme brûlée was the best we have ever had! My husband had the NY strip and I had the sea bass...both which were amazing! Salads and sides are family style so large enough to share, and portions were large enough that we had left overs. Menu is pricey but worth every penny for a special occasion. They do offer a bar menu though that we can't wait to try on a more casual night out. Thank you Tony's for an invredible night out. Will be back!

We went early and think that is preferable, less noise and we were seated in a booth, which is great. Our food was wonderful, and our waiter, Larry was the best, what a kind gentlemen, so professional. We will be back!!

I had the 12?oz . barrel cut Filet Oscar style with a bowl of masher taters and grilled asparagus .....outstanding food. Had a couple drunk Milfs sitting next to me being loud and wearing too much makeup. The food was so good I simply ignored em. Great service and fantastic atmosphere......I love Lexington.

Great restaurant in terms of location, ambience and professional staff. Great place for steaks. Unfortunately, my wife ordered Pasta Carbonara that she had to send back. She is an experienced chef and said they must have dropped the salt shaker in the food. It was that bad because she never does that. You could tell the staff was professionally trained.

The best service I've had in a Lexington restaurant - although I wasn't that impressed with the filet mignon, the overall experience was great. The owner even came over to our table and introduced himself and checked on us. Pretty pricey for the everyman.

Great atmosphere for special occasions or just date night. The food is to die for and the service is impeccable. I’ve never been to Tony’s when we haven’t been greeted by a manager or Tony himself. The wine list and bourbon selection are also wonderful. Tony’s is a great gem and Lexington is lucky to have them.
