We arrived to our reservation approximately 45 minutes early, and we were quickly seated in the bar. The food was to die for. I'm still dreaming of the delicious lump crab cake and the steak filet!

First of all, one of the BEST Indianapolis has to offer for food, service, bar scene. And note that the crowd on Saturday night between about 7 PM and 8:30 or 9 PM is quite over the top. Well worth it, but would suggest definitely making reservations BUT getting there 15 minutes before your reserve time and still be prepared to wait.
Now to the good stuff: really an extraordinary restaurant. Great location two blocks off of the Circle, the center of town and within walking distance of Lucas Oil, basketball, symphony, etc. Then, the service...wow. Lost count as to how many servers, mostly men, they used on Saturday night, plus bus people to set and clear tables. The quality and knowledge of the staff waiting tables is off the charts...and the management stopped by our table three/four times. Now to the food: perfect. Note that Tony's is mostly a steak place (done perfectly) but you can still get excellent seafood and salads. But this really is a top drawer restaurant...and has now beoome our favorite (with exception of some ethnic places in town that Tony's is really not focused on competing with.
Very highly recommended with no reservations. Make sure you do reserve a spot on line before going....and also be prepared to pay significant dollars. It is certainly well worth it, but set your expectations correctly.

Ate there after a concert we were attending was cancelled. Excellent steaks and side dishes. The service at this establishment was top notch. If we are here again, we will definitely return. I can’t remember when I enjoyed a meal this much.

I was part of a 10 person group of work colleagues who dined at Tony's. Even on a Friday night and with short notice, we were given a private dining room. The food was amazing. Most people ordered different entres and we ordered six different side dishes to share. I ordered a 9 oz fillet which was cooked perfectly. I also ordered a delicious beet salad that was large enough to split between four people. No one in our party was disappointed with their choices. Staff was knowledgeable and attentive. When ladies got up from the table for a break, they were met by a male staff who offered their arm as an escort to the washroom entrance. The staff went out of their way to make us feel special. It felt nice and natural and not phoney or overdone. There was a live jazz trio in the bar area which added to the relaxed ambience. I would not hesitate to recommend Tony's to anyone looking for a good steakhouse in the Indianapolis convention center area.

First the restaurant is nicely done on the inside. We had reservations and had a very short wait time. Our waiter acted as if we needed to hurry things along and did not give us too much time to look over the menu drinks were good appetizers great we had muddles and shrimp cocktail. Biggest shrimp ever! We ordered the main coarse and 1.5 hours later were served. While the food was very good we basically were not hungry anymore and boxed up a $300 meal to go. Our waiter wasMIA after we ordered. Manager was ok apologized and wiped some of our drinks off As we left there were quite a few disgruntled patrons having the same issue. The restaurant had been open a year. All we heard is wow were were slammed tonight no other explanation. So there you have the pros and cons
