The Food is not good, at least I did not like it. Now I have not gone there for a while, but if they have the same Cook it will be the same.

Always a great tasting meal and exceptional service. Tony and his wife are usually at the front table greeting patrons. The specials are large portions and well priced.

I have been there several times with a group & I think it is not worth the Money you pay. The Food is just not that good.

Don't be intimidated by the ride across the bridge. It's only about 5 minutes away once you get off the bridge. Under rated gem. The above average food and the extremely friendly service makes it worth the trip. Great gumbo. The Lindsey Grace dish is incredible. Stay away from the entree salads.

Not only is the food good, but the service is friendly. You even get a piano player & personal attention by the owners. A go to place for me & my friends.

Tony Mandina's is a staple in Gretna, LA. My in-law's have been dining here for years. Today, however, was the first visit for my son and I while here in New Orleans for the week of Thanksgiving. We all had the Tuesday special: spaghetti and meatballs with their famous "red gravy" (marinara). The meatballs were more than ample in size... More

Tony Mandina's is a wonderful warm atmosphere with a family touch. The quality of food is excellent and the italian flavor is one to bring you back. We also like the pianist, Roberto Matthews on Friday night.
