Was my first time at this establishment. Expected better atmosphere. Very loud. Lighting is awful. Not very intimate. Bathroom was filthy and that is unacceptable for the price of the food. Pretty disappointed overall.

It was a wonderful dining experience. We're never disappointed at Tony's. The food was great....Braised short ribs for me... Diver scallops for my wife. The asparagus were a bit hard and chewy. Our server David could not be topped...he is truly outstanding. We're sure to go back

Looking for a special dining experience for a very special occasion and thought we would try Tony's for the first time. I was not anticipating sharing a special dining experience with a sport's bar in the background? Distracting and loud at times. I expected a very sophisticated dining experience since I compared the prices with that of Jeff Ruby's and other higher end steakhouses in town that we have frequented, and it certainly does not compare in many ways. We dressed up for special night and was surrounded by, well, what you might expect at a sports bar, shorts & flip flops, jeans and t-shirt. We felt sort of out of place. Thought this was going to be a higher end experience and not a jazzed up Longhorn?? Service was average to good, but not really an over the top dining experience that leaves you saying I'll definitely go back or definitely ask for that person. My wife really enjoyed her meal, which was the saving grace, along with a manager who was very attentive and kind enough to comp a meal after seeing the difficulty I was having with a very unsatisfactory rack of lamb. The charred romaine lettuce was not super fresh and sort of limp after being charred. Had he not taken off the meal charge, I guess I would have paid $46 for some extremely good fingerling potatoes?

I would go back if I was with a party that invited me there, but I think that would probably be the only way. Would not recommend, especially for that special dining experience.

We were there for my birthday dinner. Hostess was very pleasant and recognized the birthday event. Valet was initially accommodating. After all of our table arrived we ordered the crab cake. After eating at Tonys multiple times you come to expect a level of food quality that keeps you coming back. This time however we had to ask for bread and our crab cake was burned on top. When we ordered our entrees it seemed that the waiter was put out that we had specific requests that differed from the traditional menu. Again, this is not the norm at Tonys and showed either a lack of training or screening for talented service employees. The waiter also wasn’t professional, as he touched my shoulder probably as one diner put it “fourty times” through the course of the evening. During ordering our dinner I informed the waiter that I would like a Guinness during my entree and he told me to remind him because he will forget. Again, not something we are used to at Tony’s. We reminded the waiter for the Guinness and he still never brought the beer; we never reminded him again. Outside of the appetizer the food as usual was spot on and every one of us enjoyed it. When our dining was over and we went to the valet we were handed our keys and told where our car was!!!! Granted it was not more that 30ft away but when you pay $15 for valet service having to go to your car and retrieve is not acceptable. Because of the current climate we neither complained or reduced our tip but the one great thing about Tony’s is that you always get the same high level of service and food and unfortunately this experience was neither.

Food was amazing, large menu with several seafood options, service was exceptional.
The restaurant is very noisy, we were told “valet” parking was required after we parked on the street in front of the restaurant, we basically paid the valet to hold our keys while we were in the restaurant and walked to the parked car after dinner.

Tony's is the best restaurant in Lexington, KY period. Excellent steaks and many other great entrees as well. The service is always outstanding and the setting is very classy.

Service was outstanding. Two of our steaks were excellent but one was grisly and vbery disappointing. The sides were okay. This was our second trip to Tony's. Expected more for the price.

We always love Tony’s. We have always enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food. We usually have impeccable service however this time we did not. It was a bit of a let down to the standards we have for them. Brought some first time guests with us and wanted it to be perfect. Dustin, our server was not very attentive and we had to wait excessive amounts of time for everything from our food to our check.

This visit possibly delivered two personal best ever for me. The best ribeye ever and the heirloom salad was amazing. Tonys never disappoints. While Jeff Ruby’s has good food, I will always choose Tony’s for the food and a more suitable atmosphere for me.
