“Great Steak and Fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Business dinner with group of approx. 20 people in a private dining room. Absolutely excellent steak and perfect shrimp and oysters to start. Great ambiance and very knowledgeable staff.

“Ate at the bar, nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Traveling from out of town - forgot how expensive it can be to dine out in Cincinnati. Restaurant here was pretty expensive, as was the wine list. Couldn't find a bottle of red wine under $50.

We had a bunch of appetizers at the bar - the spinach salad was yummy, as were the truffle fries (though you could smell the truffles more than taste them. They are served with an herb aioli - heavy on the mayo - fries were MUCH better w/the aoli than w/o (in fact, probably unremarkable without).

Also had sliders and fish tacos - tacos a bigger hit. Hummus was good, but nothing exceptional. For 3 of us - was $100 with a bottle of wine.

“What you go to a resturant for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Was visiting on business and a friend and his wife took me here. Had a great time. The place seems a little schizophrenic - is it a steak hourse or an italian resturant? The answer: it's both. The steaks were superb. The filet mignon had a perfect salt/pepper crust. You can choose one of several toppings; I had the gorgonzola butter, my friend the mushrooms. Both were a wonderful complement. The crusty bread was warm and soft inside; the baked potato is a standard oversized steakhouse variety. No room for dessert. Service was attentive; none of the "who had the xyz?" type. Setting was nice; I like open kitchens. What also sets Tony's apart is a raw bar. All-in-all, a real gem.

“Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I would strongly recommend Tony's. I eat there every time I fly to Cincy on business. The owner, Tony Ricci, does a superb job in operating this fine eatery. The food is great, the service is very attentive and Tony does what it takes to make your experience memorable. Maybe somewhat pricey for some but this is not Outback. You get what you pay for. Maybe a little challenging to find, so if you are not familiar with the area, call for directions or use your GPS. Once you get there, you will certainly enjoy the experience.

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We usually eat at Tony's for a special occasion. This is my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati by far and in my opinion, far better quality than any of Jeff Ruby's Steakhouses. Our food is always outstanding, the service is excellent and we always leave happy and planning our next visit. Tony always stops by the table to make sure we've enjoyed everything. How often do you go to a restaurant and the owner cares enough to stop at every table! My husband usually orders the Ribeye and I get the Strip or Filet - always well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Greek salad is wonderful and I definitely recommend the Tiramasu. I love the atmosphere as it is not to bright, perfect for a date night!
