I had been told by friends that the food was pretentious and over priced. I found this to not be the case! And the service was excellent too. Because of health reasons, we would only dine outside and Tolon was accommodating. The drinks were delicious and different. We enjoyed the Blackberry gimlet and June's sidecar, the Mule did not get rave reviews. The grilled oysters with grilled corn salad were excellent. The watermelon salad was also wonderful. I can recommend the blackened salmon and the bacon cheeseburger with bacon jam was one of the best and largest burgers I have had. Definitely order dessert. A couple next to us ordered the scallops and they looked fabulous! There are other dishes on the menu that we would like to try on our next visit.

My husband and I had the ribeye topped with butter with Yukon gold potatoes. The portion was substantial. The food was very good. I had an old fashioned to drink as well. We had the most expensive meal by far. Two can usually get out of here for under $60, but our bill was $120. Our waiter was excellent and right on top of things. He saw I splattered grease from my steak on my shirt and offered some soda water to clean up without me asking. Parking here is difficult. At 5:15 on a Friday, we had to circle the block several times to catch someone pulling out.

Tolon is an absolute must-eat in Fort Wayne. We were fortunate enough to host a dinner after our wedding here, and our guests are genuinely still talking about the food. Between our friends and family we were able to enjoy the apple kale salad, brussels sprouts, and the French onion soup for starters, as well as the chicken, ribeye, and salmon for entrees. Everything was PHENOMENAL. Our videographer even posted about the food before sharing our sneak peek! Nicky was so helpful, calm, and flexible in helping make this happen, and we couldn't be more grateful for the entire Tolon staff. No meal we've ever had here has been less than exquisite.

Food is so-so, nothing inventive, service is okay but not good. Worse is that I and a number of people in my building who live with walking distance discovered highly inflated tips added after the fact; on mine was an $80 tip on a $70 meal. I had to fight it for four months before the charge was removed. It's happened more than a half-dozen times about which others have shared. I refuse to return.

When you dine with us, you are coming into our second home - an intimate setting that just feels right" is a statement from their website, which could be further from the truth! Upon entering the establishment, it was clean and had a nice cozy feel. Waiter was very friendly and courteous. However, the owners' is what makes this place not so great. Any interaction with the owner especially the wife, the whole experience will go left. Do not ask for any accommodations and watch what you say at your table with the members of your party, the owner will surely interrupt your conversation to give you a piece of her mind if she does not like what you are discussing. And most importantly, it will be what she thinks she heard, not actually what was said. Customer Service at its finest! Seems from other reviews on multiple platforms the owner has a bad habit of this type of behavior. Can't really tell you how the food taste, by the time our appetizers came to the table, we were rudely interrupted BUT we still paid and left the waiter a tip after being asked to leave. This place is NOT FOR EVERYONE, which is usually the owner's response. So, if you're the party with no accommodations, makes no changes to your reservation, and no one has any common requests or questions, well HEY THIS PLACE IS FOR YOU!

If you’re a foodie and are anywhere near Fort Wayne you were absolutely cheating yourself not to stop in here. We drive up here once a year from Indianapolis to have dinner. The service is rocksolid in the food is absolutely off the chain delicious. Also whatever you do save room for dessert and try some of the chefs homemade ice cream. This time it was bourbon and the other one was goat cheese and they’re just unbelievably good.

Be aware, with all of the growth and construction in the area finding a place to park on the street is problematic. Allow yourself 5 -10 minutes for parking/walking. The brunch menu intrigued us. The food was cooked perfectly to order and the table service was excellent. However, the ribeye, eggs and duck frites were over seasoned with salt and too much cold chimichurri on top of the steak. The Bloody Mary was undrinkable due to the abundance of celery salt, salt, and a lack of balance. (Perhaps adding horseradish, Worcestershire, and a dash of brown sugar would help balance out the acidity of the tomato juice/cayenne pepper). The atmosphere was nice, but the acoustic buffering is non existent which makes it difficult to hear the person talking with whom you are dining. We will give Tolon another try, and by then perhaps they will have fixed some of their issues, and hopefully with great results.

We easily made a reservation for the same day online. We had seen and heard of Tolon but never visited. Not sure why now, but we will definitely be back! We got the frites for an appetizer and there was enough to feed 6-8 people. Must have been 5 pounds of potatoes. I had the scallops and my husband had the pork chop. Both dishes were excellent. He kept saying it was the best pork chop he’d ever had. The portions were generous and the sides were interesting and tasty.

My husband and I are frequent visitors at Tolon after hosting our wedding reception here in 2020. Each time we go back, we can’t imagine the food, drinks, and service being any better. But we are always wrong! We visited tonight to celebrate a birthday. Christopher was PHENOMENAL and took exceptionally great care of us. My risotto and my husband’s burger were incredible. The grilled octopus was exceptional. And the drinks are always top notch. Tolon is an absolute must-try in Fort Wayne!

Came in about a month ago before a concert and can't stop thinking about how good the food was. We had the marrow bones with duck fat toast which were simple and utterly delicious. Also had a beautiful and generous kale salad and split a Vietnamese soup with my husband. Our server was so friendly and helpful. We will be back!

Made an 8:00pm reservation. Food was great. Service (thanks Nathan) was great. Why wouldn’t we go back? It was a good night. Worth the money. The only suggestion I make if you’re reading this is to be sure you give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes. It’s busy down there and getting busier each day. So parking might take a second. Otherwise, make a reservation and go enjoy.

Today with friends at Tolon to celebrate a special event and had an awful experience with the owner, Nicky. We asked our waiter if we could move to a different table. He said he’d check and Nicky comes out versus our waiter. Why? To tell us in a passive aggressive way that we changed our reservation from 7 to 5 and an undertone of “how dare you ask to move tables”. The energy was bad from Nicky, so we said “Nevermind, we will stay at this table” and she walked away. In a private conversation amongst ourselves, our table stated “it’ll be in the review” due to her bad customer service. Nicky heard, came BACK to our table and said “I don’t appreciate …”. Yes she was offended. Thinking we needed to resolve, we asked for the other owner, her husband. MISTAKE, Nicky came back to the table and asked us to leave after being there 30 minutes. We’ve never been kicked out of an establishment. It was demeaning, it was embarrassing, it was unnecessary. Our waiter was amazing. We will never go there again. We paid the check (appetizers) anyway & tipped our waiter. Disgusted at the owners!!

I was attracted to this restaurant based on the high reviews. Then, at another local restaurant in town, our server recommended this place for their food and cocktails. We went here our 3rd night in town, and thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The Tolon Whiskey sour was perfectly prepared and went down so smoothly, I had two (most unusual for me). My wife enjoyed her rye whiskey cocktail, the Lady & Chef. Lyndsey, our server was engaging, personable and professional in her taking care of us. And, the food was excellent. There were many choices on the diverse menu from which to make our final selection. We shared a grilled shrimp dish for a starter which was a great start to the dining portion of our evening ($22). My wife enjoyed her grilled chicken over roasted cabbage ($34), and my bucatini pasta with bison meat ($38) was tremendously enjoyed. All exquisitely presented. We were too well sated to have dessert, yet left most contented. A great choice and would eagerly return.

My friends and I went to Tolon for dinner as part of Savor Fort Wayne. My order included their ribeye (medium rare). It was delicious and done perfectly. With it came frites cooked in duck fat. They were wonderful. I ordered a kale & apple salad | honey crisp apples | pickled raisins | apple maple vinaigrette | cave aged cheddar | pumpkin seeds. I was unsure when I ordered it but it ended up also being a favorite of the meal. My drink was a house old fashion | stolen x rock & rye whiskey | 18.21 prohibition aromatic bitters | simple syrup | orange peel Wonderful. Dessert was a banana curd with a crunchy Nilla Waiver topped with whipped cream. Tolon is not a restaurant to be missed.
