My wife and I went for the first time on our anniversary. The food was amazing and the staff friendly and attentive but now intrusive. We will definitely be going again!

In town from Chicago. Wanted to treat my son and his roommates to a great steak dinner! THIS was the place to go and did not disappoint. Our meal was outstanding. Don’t miss starting out with the mussels! Bone in filet was the winner, ribeye cooked to perfection as were the lamb chops. All of the shared sides exceptional~Brussel sprouts, mac n cheese and truffle potato wedges. Wine and bourbon list fantastic and of course dessert! Larry, our server, was so very kind and gracious to our table and very sweet to the boys. This mom highly recommends. Thank you! We will certainly be back.

We were first timers at Tonys, celebrating a birthday. We were not disappointed, food & service were top notch. Steaks came out exactly as ordered and our server, Lawrence (Larry) was the best, magically appearing at all the right times and made menu suggestions that proved to be wonderful. Can’t wait to return.

Kelly at Tony's is the reason my wife and I return. He treats you like you are a VIP and takes care of the little details. I would go to Tony's just because of Kelly.

Great food and ambiance. The portions are large so go hungry. The calamari was excellent and my sea bass was perfectly cooked. The braised short ribs were fork tender and the horseradish mash and roasted carrots were divine. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable but the service was inconsistent.

I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy some of the finest steakhouses across the country; and Tony’s is as good as any of them. We are lucky to have such a great place in Lex.

Our server Larry was GREAT! Food is good. Place is WAY TOO LOUD. Valet parking should not adjust driver’s seat and mirrors without returning them to the way as they were found.

Food was delicious. Loved the new appetizer, pork belly. Waiter was top of the line and went above and beyond. Noise level is a little loud and the prime steak had little more gristle in the steak than you would expect from prime meat.

James was great. Request him as your server. Crab legs were awesome, barrel cut filet melt in your mouth, sweet potatoe purée was like dessert, cheesecake was awesome.

Wait staff was intrusive and chatty. For these prices one expects good food and attentive service, not down home faux folksy babble. I don’t want unsolicited information about the waiter’s family and an interrogation about my personal business. If I did I would go to crackerbarrel. There are restaurants of equal quality nearby in Lexington. When I am in town I will not return, nor will I recommend it to anyone.

Another wonderful meal. When we told the owner it was our anniversary he gave us a complimentary dessert. The filet was cooked as ordered and the sea bass was phenomenal. Loved the fresh baked sourdough bread and bourbon butter. Sides easily serve two. Excellent service by all of the wait staff.

Not cheap by any means, but great quality. The service was super. The only negative is the lack of space between tables and being right against the west-facing window and in a corner, as the sun was setting. Uncomfortably hot and stuffy.

Best steak I have ever had. A bit loud but standing room only. Thank goodness for reservations or we wouldn’t had had a seat. Took out of town guest from Orlando and loved it!

The food was amazing! The filet was incredibly tender, juicy and melts in your mouth. The asparagus was done to perfection. The cheesecake with the brûlée top was honestly the best cheesecake I’ve ever had... elegant, creamy and perfect! The only downside is certainly the noise. It’s an elegant, comfortable environment... and we had a great table tucked away in a corner, perfect for a romantic birthday celebration. But it would’ve been more enjoyable if it was not so loud. Otherwise a lovely evening.

Valet parking was excellent with the gentlemen very pleasant. Hostess or her assistant that escorted us to the table was not very friendly or knowledgeable. Waiter (Chris, I think) was outstanding, knowledgeable and very much "on top" of things without being intrusive. The food was wonderful. Very large serving but got a nice "doggie bag" to take home. Very pleasant evening in down town Lexington. Thanks for a great experience.

Everything was great. Steaks were cooked perfectly, we asked our server for a recommended wine to compliment our dinner and his choice was perfect (and not the most expensive!)

We each got the 9 oz. Filet and it was superbly cooked and super flavorful. The mac and cheese was also delicious and the salads were top notch. The desert was fine, but nothing to write home about. The service was excellent!

Tony's has become a new fav. I always loved Ruby's but this quite possibly may be better at a better price and a much better wine selection.
Dave the GM was a super nice guy and Chris, our waiter, did an amazing job.
Thanks. We will be back.
