The food was amazing! Best steak and crab legs I have ever eaten. The service was just as amazing! It felt like we were on a cruise ship. The jazz trio was a treat. The room was incredibly loud. Very neat place for a special occasion.

One of my favorite places for special occasion (we cannot frequent due to price). The food is fabulous! But I must say I’m saddened to hear of the death of Tony’s mother who made the cannoli and tiramisu- our waiter said she didn’t share the recipe so they are no longer on the menu. We got both desserts for last years anniversary and I’ve not had anything better (before or after). I don’t see a trip to Italy in my future so probably won’t experience again. But glad to have had the best one time in my life at least!

My husband & I were in Lexington on a business trip for two days and looked for the best seafood/steakhouse in the area and Tony's seemed to be a favorite of many. It happened to be our anniversary while in town so we took a chance & went early as reservations were slim that night. They were wonderful & gave us a very private, romantic side by side booth in the back corner of the restaurant. It was perfect! Our server, James, was wonderful & very knowledgable of the menu & wine choices. Our meal was AMAZING! We had a 12oz filet and some sides that were incredibly delicious & huge. The dessert that evening was a strawberry bread pudding with dutch chocolate ice cream and I can't say enough about it...soooo good! Everything was outstanding, and we loved it so much we returned the next evening and sat in the bar as "our booth" was not available. Kooz (sp?) was our bartender/server and he was great! We went with the ahi tuna, the (giant) crab cake & greek salad that evening, and finished with a brownie with chocolate ice cream! I can't say enough nice things about this wonderful establishment...the food, cocktails, wine, and desserts, as well as the staff & management were superb & extremely accomodating! Thanks Lexington & Tony's...hope to return someday!

I have eaten there about 12 times.loved it!
However the last 4 or 6 times after 8pm dining is not great for conversation..the music drowned out the server trying desparetly to "yell" the specials..I could not hear a word from our guests unless we leaned in..I am not old..not being picky, just wish that awful music would be background not take over the whole place!!!!

Disappointed with the Manager, David on May 10th 2018 of how he did NOT handle my concern of waiting over an hour to sit my family and I for dinner in which we had a reservation. No staff member communicated with me regarding the delay and/or the expected time to sit. This is unacceptable and rude! I was very surprised of the lack of hospitality that can be easily learned for David, Manager.

First time visitors to Lexington. Walked by Tony's earlier in the day and liked what we saw from the outside. Had 7:15 dinner reservation....Monday night..... nice ambiance... wait staff very attentive and helpful in ordering a locally flavored meal/steak... Restaurant has an open feel to it as room is fairly large, but still maintains an intimate feel. We will be returning next time in Lexington. Shrimp btw were excellent!

Preston, our server, was great - very personable and engaging. The food was excellent, meat cooked to proper temperatures and the sides/apps were delicious. The assistant manager, Jeff, was nice to spend some time talking with us. The rest of the wait staff arrived at just the right time to fill water or to remove plates. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Great location for Rupp Arena events, however, food was only ok -- big portions but not much flavor or balanced flavor. Nothing popped out as special from appetizer to salads to entres to side dishes. Met the pre-show need, but would prefer to go somewhere where the food shines!

Three firemen in town for a friend's retirement celebration. Looking to eat the best steak in Lexington, and found it! Appetizers and sides were all outstanding. Our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing or hovering. Will be back again.

I have never had a bad dining experience at Tony’s. On this occasion my cousin was visiting from Chicago. He always takes me to wonderful restaurants when I visit him there, so I wanted to return the favor. Tony’s did not disappoint. Food was delicious and cooked to perfection (my cousin orders his steak “blue,” and he said the one he had at Tony’s may have been the most perfectly prepared steak he’d ever had). Service was outstanding. We had a wonderful dining experience. Bravo, Tony’s!
