Description: Tony's, a St. Louis landmark and nationally acclaimed restaurant, has featured award-winning food, service, and ambiance for more than 40 years. Recognized year after year with the AAA Four-Diamond Award and the Forbes (formerly Mobil) Four-Star Award, among others, executive chef Vincent P. Bommarito creates a signature menu. From lobster albanello to a veal loin chop with truffle sauce, from filet mignon of swordfish to a luxurious tasting menu, all dishes are finished tableside. Tony's complements each meal with a medal-winning wine collection and decadent house-made desserts. Servers, many with Tony's for decades, anticipate guests' needs to create an extraordinary dining experience. Every guest is treated to the gracious hospitality one would receive walking into the Bommarito family's home. Generations of families celebrate special events at Tony's; business and leisure travelers make sure to include dinner at Tony's in their visit.

“Best bet on "The Hill"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Wrong photo. That's Gian Tony's in the photo and that really is my regular favorite. The best bet on the" Hill". Downtown Tony's is great as well but way pricey.

“Tony's Downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have never been disappointed with the food or service. Truly elegant dining. Vince Bommarito's visit to the table is always extra special. I have never been in the wine/cigar bar but would love to give it a try someday soon.

“A ***** Star Event, always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

For years, Vince Bommarito, has set the bar high, and never reached, for fine dining in St. Louis. Personal service, tableside preparations and unsurpassed service and food quality make Tony's an event, not as a precursor to a night on the town. Reservations are highly suggested and a server will be happy to provide the visitor with a visit to the kitchen which is a quiet room, no words exchanged and so clean, even with a full restaurant, that it would literally be ok to eat off the floor. Do not miss this experience. Vince has probably spawned more restaurants than any man on earth from his staff who have moved on. He is proud of that. He should be.
