4th if July dinner date -VERY busy - great food - drink could have been better so switched to straight liquor because you can’t mess that up lol -also got a pasta dish without the fish on it and was still charged full price -I guess it is what it is

Tony's at J House was beautifully set up and a very welcome experience after being cooped up in quarantine for months. Our food was delicious - especially the short ribs rice balls and the clams oreganata. Our steaks were delicious and well cooked.
The only negative was that our appetizers did feel a bit rushed as we ordered 4 and all 4 came at once. We assume it was due to this COVID opening as you have a 2 hour time limit in your seating so I guess they are anxious to turn the table.
But overall it was delicious and we will return.

we have been here several times and each time we have no been disappointed. in view of the COVID situation, things were a bit different. we ate in the garden room which is quite nice but can get a bit humid. the tables were a bit closer than they should be. also a complaint I have with EVERYBOdy... masks only work if the nose is covered! the service was fine with the exception that when you order coffee and dessert they should be served together. by the time we got dessert, the coffee was cold or gone. In view of the situation, things were very good.

Very friendly team at Tony’s. Ashley was a great server. She made fantastic food recommendations. The grilled octopus appetizer was spectacular. It was cooked to perfection, tasting fresh and lite. I had the tagliatelle truffle as a main course. The sauce was not too heavy and every bite was delicious. I look forward to going back.

Ordered fish ? Our mistake since it would vale been better to keep flavors separate rather than overwhelming with sauce the plate.
Need to introduce better food items , in such a nice atmosphere , should be an experience and it wasn’t .
Avoid fish dishes. Stay with stakes and French fries.
Good cocktails and Tony was everywhere. He is the restaurant.

Fabulous experience...This was my second time meeting Tony and as expected he is a socially appropriate butterfly making every guest feel special. Our server Benny was exceptional as well. I usually ask our opinions if I am between two items, and his opinion was spot on. Great experience that lended to a second bottle of wine. Overall killed it. All support staff were equally helpful and wonderfully pleasant. Highly recommend!

Food was very disappointing. We barely touched the entrees and had no interest in a doggy bag. I realize it’s tough in the current environment and the staff was terrific, especially Tony. But the food was just not up to their normal standard.

My husband and I have been going to Tony's since he left Gabriel. I understand that we are all operating under strange and restricting circumstances (Coronavirus). Perhaps it isn't as easy to find good waitstaff - this isn't my field, so I am giving Tony the benefit of the doubt. What I am sincerely hoping is that Toney hasn't hired less seasoned staff in order to save money, because in the long run I think it will backfire. This is what I mean: My husband came to Tony's on June 19 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our waiter was certainly polite and well-meaning, however more training might be in order. While informing us of the daily specials, he didn't know what a meuniere sauce was. When he went to find out - which is the right thing to do, and I don't fault him for that - he then attended to two other tables before he returned to us. There was another waiter/ busboy who was walking very fast and holding his very full-tray dangerously low. I actually witnessed french fries flying off his tray as he speedily turned the corner! Two days later, I received a call from what I assume is a hostess. She spoke very fast, with what felt like a written script, to confirm our reservation for that night. While I moved our reservation from June 20 to June 19, I never made a reservation for June 21 (which is when she called). I think we will celebrate our special occasions elsewhere, from now on.

Tables are too close together and food was slightly "off." I know it's an especially hard time for everyone and I am appreciative of out outlet to eat out- literally! It would be wrong for me not to speak on this as we are still dealing with this pandemic and all need to align our best efforts as we re-enter the normal living space we once knew.
