I have eaten at Tony Roma's from the days when it was a drive in on Biscayne Blvd in Miami. Oh how things have changed, not for the better, If Tony were alive still he would be in tears. What have they done to ruin the great ribs and chicken of yester year. Keep clear, if you remember what were... More

After reading all the hype about Tony Roma's myself and a few friends in Sydney on business decided to try the meals. What a disappointment. One member of our party had not received his meal when all others had finished eating. When queried, we were told the meal had been sent to another table. Huge mistake as there were only... More

I always loved baby back ribs in here and they had nice entree's sampler to share. The staff are very ignorant, I should tell them many times only to get water. It's very quiet at lunch time but quite good so we feels like we can have the room for ourselves. Toilet not impressive as well.

Well I've enjoyed pork spare ribs at some nice places around the world but Tony Roma's along Sussex St Sydney - they were simply delicious - as was the service and the other fine foods on offer.

My partner and I live in Perth Wa, and Tony Romas is one of our favourite restaurants to eat. The food is fresh; the service is pleasant and the restaurant is clean and well maintained. There is often a wait for a table and we understand that this is due to the high volume of customers and the increased popularity... More

We were tired and hungry, and this did what it needed to do, but after a month in Sydney, with all the amazing feasts available, this was a waste of good time and money. The only thing I liked was being able to order a side of mashed potato (which was good). But sides came in small dishes rattling on... More

Mediocre food, poor service and expensive food. The ribs themselves were nice but the sides were horrible. Staff seemed like they wanted to be elsewhere and the decor of the restaurant needs updating. Won't be back in a hurry.

After two previous visits to this restaurant, both of which were fantastic experiences, we couldn't wait to return on our next trip to Sydney. Sadly, I doubt we'll be back again. It was our first lunchtime visit, so maybe this was the different. There was only one waiter for the whole dining room (about half full) and while our order... More

My husband and I dined at Tony Romas last week, at the end of a fantastic holiday in Australia. We have eaten at Tony Romas in the States before and always been impressed with both their meals and the service. However, the service was very poor here. My husband ordered ribs, and as I was not too hungry, I ordered... More

I've often walked past this restaurant and admired the old sandstone building its housed in and wondered what the food is like. On Saturday night I walked past again and, having recently had some awesome ribs in Miami, I decided to try it. Having now done so I now wished I'd kept on walking because dining at Tony Roma's left... More
