“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great bar, great food and awesome view of the canal.. I highly suggest you sit out in the enclosed area over looking the canal.. The dining room is very loud and distracting. The food and service are always excellent!!!

“Once again..great job!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We went to celebrate a friends birthday...everything was outstanding from the service to the food. Noisy,but that's to be expected. Had the striped bass special...pricey but worth it !!! Meatballs were great..the arancini were delicious as well. My friend next to me had a Caesar salad,it tasted great!!
Will be back!!!

“Never again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

2nd time being here....1st time was not memorable. This time had a business lunch & had a large pizza...was truly burnt to a crisp! I had one piece & took the rest home. Once getting at home, I realized the entire bottom was charred black...YUCK! No more Tony D's, I'll stick with delicious
Chester Cab Pizza.

“Outstanding meal and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

My wife and I decided to try a new restaurant for a date night and chose Tony D's based on recommendations from friends. We quickly realized why so many people recommend this restaurant. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive, making great recommendations for appetizers and meals. We shared an appetizer order of arancini (risotto fritters stuffed with prosciutto, pine nuts & mozzarella), and it was delicious. My wife ordered the "Sunday sauce" and got a mountain of pasta with sauce that would have made my grandmother proud - thick, full of flavor, and with huge pieces of meat complementing the meatball and sausage it came with. I ordered the braciole with red sauce, and it was amazing....it's such a pain to make at home, so it was a rare treat and was delicious. For dessert, we split some flourless chocolate cake, and even though I don't usually do dessert, this was so good that I helped finish the whole piece. We were so impressed with the service and the incredible food that my wife and I plan to visit again ASAP.

“ALWAYS EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

The Tony D Experience always begins with a warm welcome, no matter if it is February or July. The atmosphere is truly light and friendly and the sound of people having fun is ever present.

Sit as close to the Genesee River as possible and trust your waitperson to give you tips on the best meal for your needs and your appetite. Trust them., They are very good and so very helpful and efficient.

Tony D's is always experimenting with new things and yet its base of rock-solid entrees are among the best around. Sunday Sauce is always a treat and the signature meatballs are truly worthy of a photo experience.

Relax and enjoy yourself and plan on jogging when you get home. Better yet, ask for your leftovers boxed and you will have meals for two more days.
