Decided to head to this restaurant after much deliberation as there are so many nice steak restaurants in Auckland. A group of four friends including myself each ordered steaks; my steak when it was brought to the table along with the sides was absolutely freezing cold. I said to the waitresses and she said she would fix it (all the... More

Welcomed and seated without booking, as only a couple of tables left. Service was good steaks were super succulent and a decent size to cut into. We watched a few plates being served and all looked delicious. Recommend the Tonys secret marinated steak enjoyed in a comfortable, cosy old style steakhouse.

Really tasty food (especially the steak - my favourite being the bernaise and my partner the 650gm steak). Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Have been about 5 times and have always had a great experience.

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.
