September Newsletter

True Colors

“We have the ability to provide white tablecloth fine dining service yet treat our guests like they just walked into ‘Cheers.'”

It has been said that service can be described as black and white, but hospitality is in color. Anyone can teach service–serve on the left, take away on the right, fold a napkin precisely. Genuine hospitality, however, cannot be taught. We like to think we shine in how we really make you feel when you come through our doors.

We like you. We truly do. And we hope that shows. You are not customers to us–you’re our guests, our friends, our family–even if we are meeting you for the first time. Tony’s is hospitable because Tony is hospitable. It is etched in his DNA, passed down from generation to generation, to be welcoming and inviting at his table; he cares about you. He leads by example.

We are proud of the dining experience we provide. We provide the service you have come to expect and the hospitality you deserve. Remember, there is always room for one more at our table.

Changing of the Guard

September is a month that bridges the seasons. September’s fickleness is intriguing; we are still enjoying the bounty of summer as a few crisp days begin to arrive. It’s the month of transitions–summer vacation to school days; air conditioning to the first bonfire of the season; the last of the tomatoes to the first of the leaves changing their hue.

If you dine at our Cincinnati location, enjoy a warm–or cool–night on our patio. September will dictate the temperature, but not our warm greeting to you.

In either location, fall into Tony’s with a great steak and a perfectly paired drink. Toast to September and all it has to bring.

I can’t begin to tell you you how much we enjoyed our first visit to Tony’s. The food was amazing (ribeye, filet, and salmon). But more important, the staff was the reason the evening was a total success. From the time we were met at the door the staff,
waiter and management became more than workers, they became friends.
Thanks for such a wonderful first visit and look forward to many more!
From a first-time visitor…now a forever guest.
