WoW! Perfect place for birthday treat. Unbelievable food. Wings, steak and ugly burger the best.

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.

Tony’s, as always you were perfect. The food was delicious, the staff were helpful and welcoming, and it was a lovely way to mark our anniversary. We had our first date at Tony’s, and this year we were able to return 10 years later with two children. Thank you!

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 :)

There are few things better than a good steak dinner and Tony's definitely delivers that in spades. Juicy, large steaks and tasty sides. My partners steak was a bit under done to what she'd requested and the service was a little slow (but they were very busy for so early in the night), neither of those things stopped us from having an excellent time. Thoroughly recommended.

It was ok. Pretty old school in terms of culinary offering. Service was great to start with but it seems they forgot about us after we had our main courses delivered... Would've liked dessert but no-one asked for ages and then when they finally did bring a menu no-one came back so we gave up.

We had a nice time! I honestly may have been expecting a bit more as there seems to be a lot of hype over this place. I wouldn't call it the best steak I've had in Auckland but it was definitely yummy and the service was great. No complaints :)

Our FirstbTable experience at Tony’s started with a prawn cocktail and garlic bread, the prawn cocktail was a good choice with juicy prawns. The garlic bread tasted a little dry. For our mains we had filet Mignon and Pacific Steak, the meat was tender and well flavoured although I thought the meal was only luke warm rather than hot. We finished with a pecan pie and a coffee, the coffee was good and the pecan pie disappeared very quickly. Service was friendly and meals appeared quickly. Thanks Tonys

Tony's is the best place for a decent sized, perfectly cooked, delicious steak! The ribs are also amazing! Beef skewers, deep fried camembert and calamari were a perfect start! Great selection of beers and wines! And we recommend an affogato to finish, you wont regret it! Friendly genuine staff providing great service! Mean playlist with classic tunes! Yeah favourite place pretty much! HUGS TO THE CHEFS! :)

Fabulous quality food, exceeded expectations. Loved the rich wooden interior and quirky 1960s magazines on tables. Great cocktails were a bonus, with friendly staff who didn't hurry us along. Definitely recommend for any age group, any occasion.

We had a great time at Tony's. Great atmosphere, they had a table for us in the window so we could watch the street and the people going by. The fillets are so tender and juicy and are the best steaks we have had in a long time. Even got a history lesson of Tony's and how it started.
