We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary with our family here, and it was beyond our expectations. Everyone was extremely happy with their meal, the steaks were cooked to order and perfection. The atmosphere and service was second to none. First time but not the last!

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 :)

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!

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.

This is my second time to enjoy wonderful meals with friendly service and cozy atmosphere.

The foods were delicious, full of quality ingredients.

We loved our memorable experiences at here. We will definitely be returning.

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!

My meat lover family had Rump stake, Pacific stake & Ugly burger which are all good. My seafood chowder was rich and creamy. We had Apple pie and Pecan nut pie for share deserts. We all enjoyed our dinner.

The Fillet Bearnaise was just as expected but nothing spectacular. However, would recommend the Tony's Original! It has this distinctive smokey flavour which was great! Service was also excellent! Would definitely come back.

We arrived at 5pm for our First Table booking and was promptly shown to our table. Our orders were taken soon after and it didn't take long for the meals to arrive. We ordered Tony's Original, Scotch Fillet, seafood chowder, some garlic bread and $1 oysters and they were good. Servers were lovely and treated us like any other full paying guest.

- dined at Tony's Wellesley Street on

We enjoyed every mouthful of the best steaks we have ever eaten. We also very much appreciated that two vegetable sides were included in the cost of every main. The brandy snap dessert was divine.

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.

Tony's is one of the best steak restaurants in Auckland.

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.

- dined at Tony's Wellesley Street on

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.
