First, I don't know why I didn't read this in a single review but you need to know that this restaurant has NO signs and it's in a condo building. You must go through the gate and tell security you are going to Chef Tony's....Be SURE to ask what door to go into because there is NO sign. The door you go in says ARCADE. It's bizarre. The staff was very nice and attentive. For appetizers we ordered fried oysters, fried ravioli, and fried calamari. All were good, the calamari was the favorite. Dinners ordered were Chicken Picata, Stuffed Salmon, whole Bronzino, Lobster Alfredo, darn I can't remember the other two!! Everyone enjoyed their dinner. The dessert menu had a ton of options. The winner was the crème brûlée but that banana pastry looked great. A few days after our dinner I received a phone call from Chef Tony's. It was also bizarre. A young man voided of personality called me and said he was calling about our dinner. Because his voice was emotionless and he didn't really give me a greeting. I thought he was calling to tell me something was wrong! He was calling to say thank you for dining with us. That was the end of the sentence and so I said is that all? And he said yes that's all and that that was like the end of the conversation. I was so baffled when I got off the phone it almost seemed fake. You think he would've said hello and had a personality and asked me about what we enjoyed or I don't know it was just weird. I will say that they have an extensive bar menu that made one of the relatives. Very happy. I would go back again.More

What a meal! Eathan was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu and The Promenade itself. Food was exceptional and very fresh; extremely flavorful and cooked to perfection! Vegetables vibrant and had crunch, fish cooked expertly and sublime in seasoning. Chef Tohy called us the...day after to thank us for coming to spend time with them and hoped we would return.

Chef Tony helped me to coordinate a large surprise party at his restaurant. He designed a smaller per person menu and accommodated several substitution requests within our predetermined budged. Even on a Saturday night we were not made to pay a “buy out” fee that...most other restaurants required. He answered every question I had and made suggestions to improve the flow of the party. He responded promptly to all emails, even corresponding several times a day. The contract was clear and exactly what we had discussed. Even after signing, Chef Tony made changes per my request and literally went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we wanted. If you are considering a party at this establishment, do it! The owner handles all the details and puts his personal touch on everything. You can tell he loves what he does and it shows in his professionalism & attentiveness to his customers. 10/10 for Chef Tony, could not recommend this place more!!More

We are never disappointed when we eat here.. We had fabulous fresh oysters, great drinks, yummy Detroit Style Pizza, delicious Dad’s Crab Pasta and banana cream pie. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the noise level inside the dining room....The loud exhaust fan in the open kitchen area was making it necessary for everyone to speak even louder. Next time we will sit in the adjoining bar our the nice outdoor patio.More

The flavor of the dish was amazing and all of the seafood was perfectly cooked. Especially loved the plump and tender mussels. The...wine was reasonably priced. We will be back.More

The food was incredible. It was a little difficult to find, we parked at the high rise and asked someone, they gladly told us which door, and we followed the delicious aromas. It is a joyful place with a tiny bar and a boisterous bartender...(I think it is TONY) and what a gregarious one he is. He was happy to explain the foods, besides the waiter and the beer and wine list have gems. We got the pan seared scallops and the fabulous Gluten Free stew (all seafood). Excellent quality, flavor and seafood. OH but there is more. My husband got the Panna Cotta and I got the outrageous Gluten Free Chocolate Sin Cake with a cappuccino. We were in heaven.More

It is now the Chef Tony's @ Amalfi or CT3. We arrived 5:30pm on weekend for our reservation. There were two tables seated before us. The floor plan and seating area are much better than the former Amalfi Ristorante Italiano closed last year. There are...quite a few pictures and art works on the walls. We ordered four sets of pre fixe three course dinners. Our first course appetizers are Bowl of Crab Soup, Calamari, Fried Zucchini, and Tapas Sampler. Our second course salads are Goat Cheese Salad, Portobello Salad, Caesar Salad, and House Salad. Our three course entrees are Dad's Crab Pasta, Chicken Piccata, Grilled Salmon, and Parmesan Cod. All dishes were well cooked and prepared as usual. We waited 10+ minutes to order desserts, but none of the waiters and waitresses actually stopped by our table, so we gave up on ordering. It took another 10+ minutes to receive our check and to complete our payment. When we walked out of the restaurant, the whole dining area were full, plus there were more ten people waiting to be seated. Their food are delicious and so popular. They probably need to enhance the staff and service before losing patrons. For example, if the staff can serve our desserts and provide our check shortly, they can seat others much earlier.More

The lobster and chicken piccata were both delicious! The white pizza was very good but crust was thicker than the the original Amalfi so it depends on what you like. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back!

The three-course menu is $37 per person which is a great deal considering the breadth of the menu and the quality of the food. You can see the menu on the website.
