"Chef Tony's has a tremendous ranking in Trip Advisor for restaurants in Bethesda. My wife and I ordered a bottle of one of their "interesting" wines - a French white and it was a nice surprise. We both had the cod stuffed with shrimp and scallops and it was mouth watering!! Service was very good.
There was no apparent host or hostess and so when you arrive hopefully a waiter sees you. This isn't especially professional or welcoming. Also we were seated in the very front of the restaurant which has no atmosphere at all. There's a small fish tank and a view of passersby on the street, but that's it. We didn't go back beyond the bar area which was just behind us, though obviously there is dining room seating back there which may provide a different ambiance."

"Usually my daughter and I go over the bridge to celebrate her April birthday, but this year her schedule didn't permit the trip. So we met at Chef Tony's, in Bethesda, which is a half way point for each of us.
We had fresh oysters, cream of crab soup (her favorite); she had the scallops on the tapas menu and I had the crab cake on the lunch menu. The fresh vegetables were great, a mix of shredded zucchini, yellow squash, and carrots which actually tasted fresh, not frozen!
The server was just excellent; obliging without being obtrusive. The chef and the servers obviously work as a team! Even tho' it was a rainy day, we had a lovely time!

"Always a great experience, good service and your feel welcomed. The seafood is their specialty so I generally stick with those dishes. My first time doing brunch so I tried the shrimp appetizer and then had poached eggs Chesapeake, which were pretty tasty."

"Our waiter was outstanding. Patient, he explained each dish and between the four of us we each needed to know about at least two dishes. He invited us to stay and talk after the meal had finished. I don't know if they do that if they are busy, it was cold and rainy last Saturday. I do think the surroundings could be updated, but then it might raise the cost of the meal. My dish was the Penne for Pencils (they donate some money I think $2 - to a needy school in Asia). Anyway it was delicious. To be honest I think my meal was the best but we were so busy talking and enjoying our friends company they may have loved their meals too. There are lots of Italian places in the neighborhood but I would recommend this one and go back."

"The menu was wonderful - so many choices - we all determined we must become regulars to try it ALL! Seafood entrees and specials delighted all in attendance. Great desserts from the pastry chef as well. We will be back!"

"Best ceviche we've had in town. If you like seafood, this is your place. Reasonably priced, high quality. Worth repeat visits. With wine, desert and a shared app, we were out the door at $65 per person. For the quality of the chefing, that is tough to beat."
