I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

A few years after he graduated from university, Tony lost contact with all his former fellow students. He reminisced with irony about how they used to promise a lifelong friendship to each others and regular meetings, which never took place.

It's OK as long as you change each others to each other.

Try starting with Tony.

They'd be more likely to promise each other lifelong friendship in natural English.

Regular meetings is unnatural. They might promise to get together regularly.

I will repeat my sentence.

Tony lost contact with all his fellow students a few years after he graduated. He reminisced with irony about how they used to promise each other lifelong friendship and get together regularly, which never took place.

Try this:

Tony lost contact with all his fellow students/classmates a few years after he graduated. He remembered - not without a tinge of bitterness - how they had all promised to be friends for life. They were going to get together regularly, but it never happened.

"Reminisced with irony" doesn't work at all.
