We had dinner at Tony's with another couple. Service was attentive but not pushy. Very good food, but the place is extremely NOISY. Some sound absorbing materials would help.We could barely hear each other, so it was hard to have a conversation.

We try to get there for dinner several times a month. Have been to many restaurants (on 4 continents) and still find Tony's to be my favorite. Diverse menu with daily specials. Tony is a hands-on owner who makes sure that the food, service (most wait staff have been there for many years), and atmosphere are consistently excellent and all... More

We weren't sure what to expect, having only seen the menu for Tony's Bistro online. This place more than exceeded our expectations in terms of food quality, service, and friendliness. There's a beautiful bar area in which there are a few big-screen TVs, perfect for sports watching. Then just about every table for dinner seems cozy and spaced out nicely.... More

We love the recent renovations! Classy but still family friendly. The food was excellent - we had the chicken maria and chicken Marsala. They treat us like family - taking special requests without blinking an eye! William is the best - request him when you get there. Thank you Tony - we love having a relaxing and delicious family dinner... More

After giving Tony's Bistro a try for the first time, must admit, the service and food were excellent. From the bar to the dining room to the owner himself, Tony, who made the dining experience a memorable one. The recent renovations and upgrades to the interior of the restaurant were noticeable - full length bar with multiple flat screen TV's... More

When up visiting the family, this is a must. Informal and cozy, with top service, HUGE portions and sensible prices. While good Italian seems to be a staple of New Jersey, what sets this place appart are the little extra touches that make dining here special. We found this place about 5 years ago, and although we live over 1000... More

My wife and I were cruising the countryside and passed by Tony's on the way to High Bridge. A sign that said one dozen clams for $5 caught our attention. After turning around at High Bridge we returned and stopped into Tony's Bistro. It has a full bar with draught beer and reasonable wine pricing. We ordered the clams (which... More

The service was quite good, very professional. The spaghetti sauce was not great, but my chicken parm was very good. Others were happy with their meals, and appetizers. I would go back again if in the area.
