I'd like to thank Tony and the entire Roma family for this delicious dinner. It actually went beyond expectations and that is why I am giving a chain restaurant 5 stars. The ribs and steak were cooked and seasoned to perfection and the service was perfect in every way. Absolutely nothing to complain about and I cant think of anything... More

This is one of those borderline review situations as I thought the food at Tony Roma's in Encino was good but not sure I'd call it 'very good'. However I do think it was better than 'average' and hence they have lucked out with a 'Very Good' review ranking. So this branch of this American chain could do with a... More

It's no secret that Tony Roma's has more than Ribs. They have a wide variety and excellent menu selections. The staff is one of the most congenial I have ever experienced and the service is excellent. I highly recommend this Encino location.

Nice restaurant. The ribs were okay, the Steakhouse Burger and the Chipotle Chicken Salad were very good. Our waitress did a good job even though they were very busy.

I was unpleasantly surprised at the quality of Tony Roma's in Encino, both in terms of food and customer service. When I arrived, it took several minutes for anyone to even greet me. A couple waiters passed by without even a smile or acknowledgement. When someone did finally come, they assumed I'd want to sit in the bar area because... More

Haven't been to Tony Roma's in years and boy did it not dissappoint! I had almost forgotten how good they are. I used to come here for the babyback's but this time I had both the babybacks and the beef ribs and found them both cooked to fall off the bone perfection. I also really enjoyed the new sauces (I...

Been here 20 times or more and always wonderful. I just get the Baby Back Ribs. Attentive staff takes care of you. If you do not drink, do not sit in the bar. That's it!
