Excellent. Delicious 80's retro experience. Every dish the best version of itself and the $1 oysters! Charming service too. We and the parents loved it.

Went here for my graduation and was lucky enough to grab a first table booking. We had a range of seafood entrees and then stakes for mains which were all delicious and cooked perfectly to everyone’s liking. Would definitely recommend this place even if you don’t get a first table. Service and food was fast, but never failed to deliver.

We had been meaning to go to Tony's for ages after so many positive recommendations from friends and work colleagues. Finally we made it last night and found out what all the fuss was about. The food is DELICIOUS! The Tony's special marinade is so flavoursome - the steaks are obviously the star of the show but everything we had, from scallops to start through to a lovely pecan pie to finish off, hit the spot perfectly. The service was on point as well. We did count four different people who served us, and sometimes it's nice to build a rapport with one server throughout your meal, but all of them provided outstanding service with a genuine smile.
Thanks for a lovely meal Tony's! We will definitely be back :)

I have been told Tony's is a classic in Auckland, and my partner said he loves the steaks here, so I thought I'd book it on First Table and try it for the first time. Service was excellent, all the waiters were friendly and reasonably attentive. Food: to be honest I was a little underwhelmed.
Crumbed scallops, deep fried camembert, and buffulo wings for entrees - these were all deep fried for too long and made them all taste and look cheap. Camembert and scallops had the same crumb batter so they didn't feel differentiated.
Mains - we had Pacific Steak (eye fillet stuffed with crab meat and topped with Prawn), and the Crispy Salmon. My partner asked for Medium steak, he got closer to a Well Done. It was a little dry. Seasoning/sauce was very tasty.
Crispy Salmon was also a little overdone, nothing I couldn't cook in my air fryer at home to be frank. Bearnaise sauce was super buttery which I loved.
I feel Tony's is being left behind in the times as there are a tonne of other restaurants that can serve similar dishes to a higher quality at the same or lower price point. The menu however reflects options of a great steak house - they just need to deliver to a higher standard.

One of the best selection of steak on their menu. Good service. Hearty meals and good portions as all steak comes with vegetables/salad and potatos/fries. Il definitely go back.

Faultless from start to finish. Food was amazing, staff knowledgeable, and attentive enough to be helpful but not fake and in your face.
If this restaurant was in my home town I'd be a regular visitor for sure.

Enjoyed dinner with my partner and son. Couldn't fault anything at all, everything tasted delish - service was fast and both my partner & I agreed that this was the best steak we've had. Period. They catered to our toddler which was great and he too enjoyed his meal. We took advantage of the $1 oysters, although not very big they are still tasty. Would definitely recommend and will be back again!

Tonys is always a fabulous experience for me, especially with one of their steaks. My partner and his sister hadn't been before so of course I had to let them in on my secret. For starters we had the deep fried camembert and garlic bread - both excellent choices. They had the scotch fillet and I had the pepper steak. All were cooked to perfection with delicious sides. The hot pot is a definite must try when coming to Tony's. All in all, we had a great start to our evening out - thank you Tonys!

WOW WHAT A FABULOUS NIGHT !!!! The team at Tony's were brilliant, friendly and helpful, and delivered very delicious food. The Irish accent still needs a little work, :-) but added to the entertainment. Excellent location, excellent ambience, we all enjoyed our dinner, what else can I say - Keep up the great work guys, and THANK YOU SO MUCH. Looking forward to the next time.

Large selection of food and drinks. Everything we ordered was really good, except for spaghetti but it was just because it wasn’t to my particular taste. But the quantity was enough for another meal - so that’s a bonus. The oysters were reasonably priced and creamy, would have just been better if prepared on ice rather than rocket. What I liked the most about this place is that it isn’t pretentious, and is about the food.

It was a birthday dinner for my husband.
Staffs were very friendly and welcomed us. All the foods are absolutely delicious. $1 oysters were skinny but worth it.
The seafood chowder was amazing.
Steaks were perfect.
I had Dolce vita for the dessert, and it was fantastic! I really loved it.
My family liked Cheesecake and the hot Apple pie, too.
Interiors are also gorgeous.
Highly recommend.

This is our third time in Tony’s steakhouse and it was still an excellent dining experience. Food was exceptional, heaps of servings! So it’s worth every penny. You know they value their customers as they have specially prepared a high chair and some coloring activity for our son.
Would be coming back again in the future! Thanks Tony’s team!

I have a lot of dietary requirements and was really worried to be a hassle, but the service was amazing and they were so accommodating to my long list of requirements. I didn't feel like a burden and ended up with an incredible meal! I loved the atmosphere, friendly staff and the cooks! I would recommend :)
