This is the place to try REAL Absinthe with sugar and water Louche ... we loved it. Perhaps a once in my lifetime share with our 20's kids. The food was the best in a town, but expect to pay it's worth. Also its been years since having banana foster and Tony has a permanent station in the middle of the restaurant. On our second visit there during our 3 day vacation he made a double quantity that was not to be missed. We would eat there once a week forever.

I heard many other excellent reviews about Tony Stella's, so when our "Date Night" took us there, I was pleasantly surprised that it had fully exceeded all expectations! The food was incredible, and Tony and his staff were incredible. The setting is beautiful and romantic, and the atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. I highly recommend Encore for anyone wishing to have a classy evening in beautiful Jim Thorpe.

I'm ready for an encore of Tony Stella's Encore. Tony's table side description of dishes is dinner theatre at its finest. A real showman that has an amazing flair for detail that will have your mouth watering by the time he's finished explains the dishes.

I was a bit skeptical that it was all show, but Tony delivered a masterpiece of a meal. His family recipe Bass was incredible. A melt in your mouth experience with the perfect citrus notes.

The atmosphere is this historic mansion was also dead on. Complete with a pianist/singer that took my wife and I's request of Mr. Bo Jangles and Sound Gardens Black Hole Sun and turned them into a romantic medley.

We picked Jim Thorpe solely for its proximity to the river, but the mix of architecture, geographic beauty and the blow you away experience at Tony Stella's will make this a repeat getaway destination for years to come.

Tony, your the Tops!

We were still in Jim Thorpe after our son's wedding, and walked around to find a dinner spot on Sunday evening. We chose Tony Stella's Encore- a lovely romantic outdoor patio. Who knew such fantastic food was available right here?! Tony himself introduced the food in delicious detail. I can't describe it adequately but I'll try to tell you how this was so wonderful! The Stellatini martini was fresh and quenching. We had an amazing appetizer of succulent filet mignon tips seated in a creative cheese shell, cradled in blue cheese and greens, with fresh berries,elegantly displayed. Then came a signature soup of tomato and basil with cheese that was beyond compare! Next, the luscious pork tenderloin with a Grand Marnier cherry sauce was almost too gorgeous to eat, but we loved it! Beautifully presented with tiny tender asparagus, greens and an edible orchid, it was just as tasty as it was great to look at. For dessert we shared the fluffy lemon curd white cake with crushed pineapple and coconut. It tasted just like summer! We would gladly return here for another very memorable meal. If you are ever in Jim Thorpe and you appreciate truly fine food, this is THE place to eat. Thanks, Tony!
