We have been dining here for about 15 years and every experience we have had has been awesome. Great atmosphere, and service. The meals are always perfect and consistent, you get exactly what you order and is excellent value.

Called in for lunch. Quickly seated as it was very quiet for a Thursday. It has a vintage feel to the place. I ordered the fillet steak with bernaise sauce. Cooked perfectly. The Apple pie for dessert was also very good. I'll be back next time I'm in the city.

Lovely waitress serving us, however, our steak was well under cooked (raw in the middle) and requested it to be redone which took 10 minutes so the rest if our meal went cold while waiting. Both the chef and owner argued the fact that the steak was how we wanted it. Sorry but raw steak is not medium!. Neither the chef or manager would come and talk personally to us and passed their replies through the waitress. Very slack on their behalf . Manager hid in the kitchen when we went to pay at the end and sent another waitress to settle our bill at FULL PRICE!! Such terrible management with no customer service at all to offer... certainly no " the customer is always right" at that restaurant. Will definitely not recommend to anyone or return.

Over the years I've taken visitors both to Tony's Lord Nelson and the original Tony's on Wellesley St (running parallel with Victoria St). The late Tony White opened the first one in 1963 and over the next decade or so there were seven of them around various parts of Auckland. Some of them have closed the doors now but if you're in the CBD and wants a perfectly cooked steak of beef, lamb or venison then Tony's is the place to go. Personally, I'm leaning more to Tony's Lord Nelson as my choice of place. It's a proper steak house with a good bar service and friendly staff in old English style surroundings.
