This was our first time to dine at Tony's and it was amazing. We had the Filet Mignon and Ribeye and it was the best steaks we have had. Very tender and cooked perfectly as we ordered. The service was excellent, the wait staff very attentive and knowledgeable tot he menu items. I highly recommend Tony's for any special occasion dinner you may be planning.

Was looking forward to celebrating our anniversary at Tony's. It is an an upscale restaurant and had excellent service. We ordered the ribeye steaks and ordered them medium but they were more like medium rare. Steaks had some gristle as well. Seasoning and flavor were good though. The sides were good. Dessert was good. Nothing really outstanding though but not bad. Just didnt live up to the hype.

Stephen our waiter was absolutely amazing. My wife said it best, take the sum of all the waiters and waitresses that she has had in her life time and Stephen rates better than all of them added together. Initially, our eyes were bigger than our stomach's and we wanted to order most everything on the menu. His recommendations for wine, appetizer, main course, and desert complimented our taste buds very well. He did not allow us to over indulge, allowing us to leave fulfilled without being too full or uncomfortable. The food was incredible! Be prepared to spend a couple hundred dollars, but it is worth it for the atmosphere, tasty food, and outstanding customer service. Highly recommend for a special occasion. You will not be disappointed!

Exellent steaks, pretty good sides, limited appetizer options, attentive service BUT oh so pricey! Hard to get out of there for less than $100-$150 a person and that’s with limited drinks and cheap (ish) wine. Lexington has plenty of places with as good or better food and nicer ambiance for better value. I don’t mind paying for good food but this was just a bit over the line. Kind of place guys take other guys out to just to prove what big spenders they are!

Last night was one of *the* best dining experiences we’ve had in a long, long time. Officially obsessed. Amazing food (possibly the best steak I’ve ever had), beautiful wine list, and truly incredible staff—from Chad the busser to James our waiter, to Kelly the beverage director—everyone was the absolutely definition of hospitality. We are from Palm Beach (and restaurant owners ourselves so we are pretty picky) and this was our first trip to Lexington. Tony’s was our first stop—it left a lasting impression and we will most certainly be back! Maybe even before the end of this trip! I’m not sure how anything else can possibly compare. They created such a personal experience for us—whether it was bringing out private reserve wines to or just truly getting to know us, it’s clear what Tony’s entire culture is all about and I wish every restaurant would “get it” the way that they do. Thanks again for taking such great care of us, Kelly, James, and Chad!!
Love, Linsey and Tommy

Booked a reservation for our anniversary, included that in the open table reservation. The hostess and wait staff had no idea... both asked if we were celebrating anything or there on date night. We were sat at the worst two person table in the restaurant, even though it was only about half full. The food and service, after being seated was great, but clearly some things that could use improvement.

The food and service were excellent. The Sir Barton NY Strip is one the best steaks I have had. The only sight negative is that the acoustics do not dampen the noise level from so many people talking.

Our server, Jeff, will simply not the best… Our food was brought out incorrectly, not made to order more specifically, things were added that should not have been, things were left off that should not have been. The food taste was subpar, I would recommend Grillfish over Tony’s any day. A sad date night for sure!

The quality of the food was excellent. I had the dry aged bone in New York. Cooked perfectly to medium rare. It was tender and very flavorful. The tuna tar-tar appetizer was very good, with a great sauce that had a little zip to it. My wife had the braised short ribs and they were melt in your mouth perfection. I can also recommend the creamed spinach side. Superior service from our lead server and the back waiter too. Pricey over all, so more of a special occasion spot than a go to spot. Worth the price though.
