We have eaten at Tony's several times but the Chef's Table meal and presentation are on par with some of the best I have ever had across the country. We have eaten in some of the best restaurants in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Napa and others and I would put this on par with those. But wait, the best news is that it is at probably one-third to half the cost of these restaurants.
The table acomidates 6 people, and if you leave hungry, its you fault.
The first thing they ask when you come in is if any persons in your group have any food allergies or dislikes. If so they will modify accordingly.
The main Chef, Christina is a joy to watch and she takes the time to explain each serving.
Appetizers such as Stuffed Shrimp wraped with Bacon, Fried Green Tomatoes with a Remolaude, a Hot Brown,or a piece of Fried Chicken Breast will certaintly get you going. ( I think we had 5-6 apetizers to try on our last visit). Next, a small salad with a balsamic vinagrette to just cleanse your palate before the entrees. These are all great, but make sure you save some room because you are just beginning.
Then comes the real food. This usually consists of 3 selections. A pasta,(we had a pasta with what she called a Mesa-Mesa sauce, part Alfredo and part Marinara) meat,(we have had Steak or last time a Pork Schnitzel) and fish (my wife had a Grouper Diablo)plates are what we have had. All I can say is AWESOME. There were times we actually licked the plates to get the last bite of sauce.
Then, when you think you can't stand anymore comes desert. Anything from a Creme Brulee, to an Itailan Creme Cake, Chocolate Cake.....
But last time one of the Chefs (and I am so sorry I forgot her name) made us a special desert, a Chocolate Gravy served over fresh biscuits. It may sound kind of different, but we could have made a meal just of that.

The ambiance (there is a pianist playing on a grand piano), the meal, the service. Impecable.
Oh, and I forgot to mention Tony York. A great guy with a great restaurant. He constantly comes by to check on you, from asking about your meal to filling you water glass, he truly want's you to have a great experience.
Definitely worth the trip.
