I have arrived at 8.30 to eat, plenty of empty tables, but the receptionist said "I have to checkn the resevations!" and Iasked at what time the kitchen would close, the answer was at 9 pm. Eventually the manager arrived and had such a bad "regard" to me, I could understand that they definitively did not want any more patrons

Tony’s is a good old fashioned restaurant where a party can chat and hear each other. We have been coming here for years and like the food, the ambiance and service, provided by a team of waitresses from around the world. Usually have the steak but also recommend the venison. The quality of the meat is good and grilled as... More

We dined here early at 6.15pm as we were going to a show. It was quiet on arrival so we had the pick of tables. We shared some garlic bread as a starter which was ordinary. It was only lightly toasted on one side and was very mildly fused with garlic. I chose a sirloin with peppercorn sauce which was... More

Feels like your stepping back in time when you enter this establishment, and thats no bad thing. Nice ambience and plenty of space by the looks of it. I was well taken care of by the wait staff and enjoyed both the scallop starter and rib eye steak, medium was possibly a touch over but nit enough to stop me... More

I used to come here as a student and then every month when I started work even though it entailed a drive into the city. The days of meals for less than $5 and red gingham are long gone and in fact, this is not really a cheap eats place with around $38 for a steak main for example, however,... More

What a wonderful setting, beautiful meals, and amazing ambiance. Party of 6. I had the seafood platter, everyone else had steak. Could not ask for a better meal.

Having newly arrived and getting my bearings. I realized that due to the time difference I was in need of dinner now. Came across this place, which by the way is a little more pricer. Hungry I was. Took in the chicken special with chowder. Let me say, that hit the spot. Was waited on nicely, no pressure to leave... More

My wife and I dined here last weekend and the food was very good. My wife had a steak and it was cooked to perfection, I had the rack of lamb which was very good but was a bit small, 3 ribs instead of 2 would have been good. The restaurant has a nice intimate atmosphere and the staff are... More

I had a good memory about this place when I visited Auckland 5 years ago. So, I took my family there. The ambience was the same as what I remembered. We had good food and service.
