    The food and atmosphere were great!! The soufflé blew my mind. The cotton candy bust was a fun surprise! The chef even came out to say hello and brought us a special drink and made sure we loved our meal, she was amazing. Can’t wait to go back!

    The food and service are some of the very best in Houston. The attention to detail, personalized attention, and thoughtfulness are unmatched. We were celebrating a special occasion, and all the staff from the owner to the servers to the chef worked to make it unforgettable. It’s expensive and you truly get what you pay for.

    Worst ever for me. Food was good, but the overwhelming number of servers, waiters, and staff coming by our table walking speedily in the room was distracting. Not only was it my first time and an anniversary celebration, but the separate waiter for dessert order taking was a different person from the appetizer and main course …of course we ordered several appetizers and ended with never getting our dessert. Upon sitting at our table to eating our appetizers, we had five to six different people interrupt our conversation without paying attention to our mannerisms. One elderly lady was obviously oblivious to asking how we were doing two minutes after checking on us already. Then, once we assumed our dessert order was made, nobody came for 45 minutes until we asked about the soufflé… never got one, just got the bill and left. The singer was creepy. Not blind, but wore dark sunglasses in a dark room. His choice, but walking towards us across the server path was odd. Having the waitstaff stand out of sight observing cues would have been a better practice than interrupting and asking if we were done ordering from the menu! So odd. Having attention from waitstaff is one thing, but an over abundance of different people trying to serve water, bread, half the meal, dessert, was another. At the end, the bread server was most helpful and spoke clearly so gratuity went to Matthew.

    The food and service were excellent as always. The kids birthday party was quite loud, and sadly we were seated right next to them. Perhaps encourage a private room for a group that size next time, or some other creative solution.

    It's been a while since we've been here and it was just as great as always. Pear truffle salad was outstanding and such a wonderful combination. The lobster bisque is still the best in the world. We tried the cotton candy foie gras which was another fun combination - so delicious! Lamb chops, sea bass, salmon were all outstanding. And of course, we had to have the Souffle! Chocolate soufflé, enough said! Thank you for a great evening.

    Always amazing- thank you! Food and service always perfection. My only complaint is twice this month the tables that fold under do not sit flat when they are a four-top... so the leaf tilts into your lap and a little annoying. Same when the leaf is up... on Valentines our silverware kept falling onto the floor because leaf could not say fully up. Maybe you need to repair or get a few new expandable tables. THANK YOU... being picky but you ased for feedback! xxooo

    You don’t go to Tony’s for an inexpensive meal. But you do go there if you want a special experience. The food is divine in a beautiful setting. Service is always perfect. Kennedy serves wonderful drinks in the bar. You can’t beat the soufflé anywhere. It is a magical place.

    The last time we dined at Tonys was 30 years ago. Feel sorry now we neglected to come more often though we live an hour away. We had our valentines dinner in the previous location at post oak. Changes in the venue, decor and ambiance was notable to me and my wife but not bad ones. Just different. Food and service remained the hallmarks and still truly are. Mrs. Vallone was very kind and welcoming.
