I've been to eat at Tony's a few times and this is my first review. Everything always goes well and everyone always enjoys the food. This time we all got the cheese steaks. Although a little on the greasy side we all thought they were good and would order again. The fries were good and plenty. Our server was friendly... More

First time here, even though we pass by going to other restraunts. Small side parking lot, much larger gravel one in the back. Almost empty on a black Sunday night. Bar area separated by half glasswall, nice. Lovely dining area, variety of drinks. House wines were good and only $6. Many others to choose from. We both had Veal parmigiano,... More

Tony's is a decent place to eat. They have basic Italian food. Pizzas are large can eat in or take-out. The service is fine when it is not too crowded.Then they get a little overwhelmed. The food is typical with good portions. Nice bar! They also offer take-out

Came here for dinner recently with my husband. We noticed that the prices have risen a few dollars per entrée. We always start with the steamed clams (at $5.00 per dozen it's a great deal!). They were very good. I had the flounder franchaise which was very good. My husband had a pork chop special and did not like it... More

We live in Califon and Tony's Bistro is wonderful. Food is delicious and people are friendly. My friends and family will drive out of their way from Flemington just to come and enjoy Tony's.

Tony's is certainly the best place for dinner in the Califon area. Portions are generous and the dishes are generally tasty. I had the salmon special (almond-encrusted with soy ginger sauce, sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes). The salmon, while generous in size, was overcooked and dry. The almonds added little more than a bit of texture, and while the sauce... More

The variety was excellent, and more importantly, the food was delicious. (Best bacon ever at a brunch.) We loved the fish too.

Some dishes are great and others are not. Not enough healthy meal options, but they will cook to order. Great place to see neighbors and friends. Very friendly bartenders and wait staff. Recently added a singer/guitarist that is very good!
