“Best service! Comfortable atmosphere. Fantastic value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Stopped by here last night for a quick dinner. Exterior is no indication of how pleasant and comfortable the dining area is. There are several different sections all tastefully decorated. Plenty of room between tables which I always appreciate. The menu has the usual Italian fare. However, Tonys offers specials on Tuesday night (pasta specials) and Wednesday night ( chicken specials). So many options to choose from and each entree comes with pasta and house salad. My husband chose the Newport chicken which was a boneless breast of chicken stuffed with a crabmeat breading. I chose the chicken piccata. We asked if we could substitute the pasta for a vegetable. Our waiter was extremely happy to oblige. Delish! Best part is that each special was only $12.95. Unbelievable! Portions were generous. (Had leftovers for lunch). We will definitely return and bring our friends as well.

“Good Food - Too Noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

We had dinner at Tony's with another couple. Service was attentive but not pushy. Very good food, but the place is extremely NOISY. Some sound absorbing materials would help.We could barely hear each other, so it was hard to have a conversation.

“Favorite Restaurant Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

We try to get there for dinner several times a month. Have been to many restaurants (on 4 continents) and still find Tony's to be my favorite. Diverse menu with daily specials. Tony is a hands-on owner who makes sure that the food, service (most wait staff have been there for many years), and atmosphere are consistently excellent and all of his customers are treated well and satisfied. Have and will continue to recommend it to anyone who likes to eat!

“Hunterdon County Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

We weren't sure what to expect, having only seen the menu for Tony's Bistro online. This place more than exceeded our expectations in terms of food quality, service, and friendliness. There's a beautiful bar area in which there are a few big-screen TVs, perfect for sports watching. Then just about every table for dinner seems cozy and spaced out nicely. We tried the Veal Sorrentino and the Flounder Francais from specials, and both were plentiful and perfectly prepared. Our appetizers (a $5 steamers special and a Portobello Mushroom, and even the salads) turned out great, too. I especially appreciated the owner's attentiveness to each and every customer in a crowded restaurant, as he found the time -- even amid opening our bottle of wine -- to be sure everyone was satisfied and to make small talk about everything and anything. The servers, too, made sure water glasses stayed filled and patrons had what they needed. All in all, an excellent dinner. We'll be back. Helpful hint: Tony's Bistro is on restaurant.com, where you can get certificates for discounts.
