This was our third visit to Chef Tony's, a terrific value when one buys a LivingSocial coupon: $40 for 2 on their fixed price menu whose regular price is $80. Even at $80, the food is worth the price. The menu allows 3 choices: an appetizer/salad/soup, a main course, and dessert. The food during this visit was superb and each course a generous serving. For starters, we shared the yummy calamari and a fantastic warm spinach salad (with warm bacon dressing, pecans, a bit of blu cheese and strawberry slices for garnish and a pleasant added taste). We both had the seared shrimp with spaghettini (marvelous creamy tomato sauce: we asked for non-spicy and got it). While there were only 4 shrimp on a plate, they were large; the pasta was extra good with slices of thick tomato (no seeds). Desserts were warm bread pudding (very good) and sweet potato (called "pie" but with no crust) and butter pecan ice cream - delicious. If we lived closer, we would eat there more often.
But there was a down-side: some tables (ours, this time) were too close together. And that evening the service was sub-standard. We waited 20+ minutes for the calamari to appear - but no beer or salad. After another wait and finishing the calamari, we had to ask for the (shared) salad and beer (all on our initial order). They appeared after more waiting, but at least the main course arrived soon thereafter. Then yet another wait, but: this time our waiter stopped by to say our dessert would be out shortly. After 5-6 minutes, he stopped again to say the same thing. A little more waiting and dessert arrived.
I admit that they were busy with all tables fully occupied (6:30-7:00) - but they seemed to have plenty of waiters and servers working. We noted that at least some patrons received better service. Decor is pleasant, and there was no loud music to hinder conversation. Based on better service during 2 previous visits (all on Sunday evenings), and the terrific food, we will certainly return.
