Not only the best Italian food around but also the best steaks always cooked to perfection. Music in background of Frank Sinatra, great atmosphere. Those complaining about extensive wait of 2 hrs should try going to any decent restaurant such as Houstons. You will wait 2 hrs but as good as the food at Houstons, it is nothing compared to Anthony's. Relax and enjoy. You will not be rushed to give up your table which may cause a longer than expected delay.

The only way you are getting into this place is if you are friends with the Matre'd, are family, or complain constantly....these will get you seated after a while. We waited over an hour and a half to get seated --- and that's with reservations. Was it worth the wait you ask - No. The food is good, but not worth it. It was apparent that they had enough business and didn't care if they treated some customer's unfair as I was waiting right by the Matre'd when he kept blowing people off. Don't bother going there - this was a mistake I won't repeat.

Anthony's at one time, was a great place, and it still is if you are in with the Owner or manager, otherwise consider waiting a long time for an average table, and your waiter will try to overorder for you to up the bill, and if you leave a personal item behind for a short time, don't expect to get it back, or get any help from the Restaurant.
Yes, there is some good food being served, and if you can live with the overly loud music, its an experience thats best left behind, for others to experiment with.

The best way to describe my dining experience would be.. Lively. Anthony's runway 84 is great for special occasions or the perfect dinner, their food is obviously prepared with an true Italian passion for fresh ingredients and oversized portions. Runway 84 is a world away from ""routine italien"" and has become the spot I most want to come back to.

I am from San Francisco and discovered Anthony's Runway 84 a number of years ago from a waiter in hotel who just happened to be from Brooklyn and felt this was the best Italian restaurant around. Well a group of 12 went and had a great time. There were too many of us to be seated all together but we were accommodated and treated very well considering we had not made reservations. What sold us were the mussels. There is so much food even before your entree is brought that you can hardly eat it. I travel to Miami at least 3 times a year and always make Runway 84 a stop. Try the veal chop . It's huge (enough for 2 meals). I am surprised at some of the reviews - I have always had good service and continue to refer friends there.
