Appetizers and entrees were delicious, squid ink pasta with shrimp especially! Desserts were nothing special, but would definitely return!

Great as always
Not cheap but worth the price. Go here often and have never been disappointed. Took a friend this time who'd never been here before and now she's a huge fan, too.

We have been going to Stone
We have been going to Stone Park since they opened years ago. The prices have gone up markedly over that time but it remains one of the most reliably excellent options around. This time, I took my sister and her pre-teen son, who were in town. My nephew has a very limited list of food that he will eat. We asked if they would modify one plate so that it would consist of nothing more than chicken and fries, which they did exceptionally well but charged a steep price. Stone Park is a great go to place for a casual great quality meal.

This our 4th time dining at this restaurant.Each time we tried different entrees and were never diappointed. The food is great and I like that you have the option of the of ordering from the Daily Market Menu. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are never rushed.

Food is mostly always pleasing
Food is mostly always pleasing it seems to go through phases. Service is often a bit sketchy; some waitstaff could use a little more polish, even is it was only lunch.

My only criticism is that
My only criticism is that the food was over salted for my taste and I'm not one who likes my food without salt. I will certainly return but will simply ask that they tread more lightly on the salt. I really enjoyed the visit.

Stone Park is truly a neightborhood gem; wonderfully unpretentious atmosphere and consistently excellent, New American food. The hidden treasure of the menu is Stone Park's home made cavatelli and gnocchi, which are both exceptional; very delicate and sweet. I recommend either as a first or pasta course. Great place to dine with friends and linger over dessert, good port selection and cheese plate.
Although always crowded, we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The service was engaging and knowledgeable. Bartender makes a great Manhattan. Prices are very reasonable considering the high quality of menu, location, etc.

This is one of the top 3 - 4 restaurants in Park Slope. Interesting, modern cuisine, consistently well-executed. Nice mix of neighborhood demographic. Charming interior.

Upscale and Unpretentious
The dining experience that I enjoyed along with my husband and our friends was as upscale as any in Manhattan wiith a warm neighborhood feel. The octopus appetizer with chorizo and fingerling potatoes was a delicious take on Spanish tapas. My branzino was brought to the table whole and efficiently de-boned by our server. Cocktails were great. Although we chose to pass on dessert, I found the chewy little chocolate cookies that came with the check a nice touch! We will definitely be back again!

This is our favorite Brooklyn restaurant. The food is wonderful and quite inventive. The S-Th prix fixe market menu is an excellent option. The appetizers and the entrees are always superb and feature seasonal ingredients--usually one fish and one meat. They make their own ice cream and it is delicious. One of the best thing about this restaurant is that they take reservations so it is a good choice for adults and groups who do not want to stand outside in a line for a long time. We have always been seated immediately. Because the food is excellent and they take reservations, it is our go-to restaurant for out-of-town visitors who want to see why Brooklyn is so highly rated.

great for dinner
**This review applies only to dinner (this is a popular spot for brunch, but I have never been--I have been turned off by the long lines and my assumption that they don't let you linger, so as to accommodate the maximum number of customers).
For dinner, however, this restaurant is phenomenal. I have lived in the neighborhood for a few of years and only went for the first time last week...and have been back twice already! The food is delicious and healthy. The cocktails are delicious. The service is professional and kind. It is not too loud (good spacing between the tables), and the temperature is ideal. I look forward to making this a regular choice for dining out, and I plan to bring family and friends when they come to the neighborhood.

Well prepared high quality food
Top notch Park Slope bistro that accepts reservations! Menu is not large but all 4 of us found interesting and tasty items to enjoy. A small menu speaks to the effort to present only fresh seasonal items. Fish and pasta were outstanding. The gnocchi was among the best I have tasted in a restaurant. Pleasant but busy atmosphere typical of Park Slope. But where else can you enjoy a nice stroll after dinner?

Great food, and friendly service.
Great food, and friendly service. The pasta dishes are particularly good. The wine list is well-constructed and offers nice variety, but be warned-- they are often out of bottles listed.

Our Neighborhood Favorite
Stone Park Cafe is a wonderful neighborhood place. Weekdays at the bar you can be more casual or you can get a table in the dining room for more special or formal occasions. The food is always amazing. Have the Brussels sprout salad and you'll keep coming back.

Sweet Neighborhood Place
While we waited for our friends, the bartender made me the best Margarita ever. She even shaved a few squiggles of lime peel into it...it was fabulous and she was delightful.
We were given the choice, and I would have preferred the quieter indoor table (with the white tablecloth), but my friends wanted to sit outside in the bistro-style setup & watch Park-Slope go by. It was a lovely night and a great meal. The food, service and atmosphere here is terrific. I had a hanger steak that was prepared perfectly. It was so tender I didn't need the steak knife...loved the mashed potatoes!
(We even found street parking with no trouble.)
We'll be back.

Great experience from the start. A call from the manager confirmed our reservation - including a high chair. Drinks were fantastic as was the food. Capped off with dessert and coffee... You can't go wrong here.

Top of the line
Everything here is outstanding, menu, food, cocktails and wine, and of course service. Every detail is thought of. Definitely one of the best places and my favorite. Recommend to everybody who loves food.

Worth writing a review for
The food was amazing and the staff was super friendly. They made our lunch very special, especially with how amazingly they treated my 4yr old. And again, the food was out of this world.

Went here for our 1st Anniversary dinner, had a wonderful waiter who was very polite and accommodating. Had some of the best display of manners I have ever seen from a waiter in a long time. The food was very good, had a few pieces of my hanger steak that was undercooked and the rest was a touch over cooked, but since it still tasted really good, I ate it. Other wise everything else was flavorful and well prepared. Both my wife and I really enjoyed this resturant and will go back.

Excellent family meal
We went with a large group and a small puppy. The outdoor seating was perfect for us. We particularly loved the marrow and scallop tacos.

We wanted to find a restaurant by the Barclay Center. We did walk to it so make sure you have comfortable shoes! It was worth the walk down the restaurant opens at 5:30. we walked down and got there by 5;15. We sat at the bar never offered a cocktail odd I thought.The food made up for that..... Chicken, burgers and pasta we ordered farm fresh as promised!. The pasta cooked to perfection all freshly prepared! The chicken skin was crisp even with the mushroom sauce was on it very tasty! Wine list very large as the tap beers made us happy also! We had dessert and coffee so surprised at the freshness of all.

We've been going to Stone Park Cafe for a few years now, once or twice a year, and we are never disappointed. They've perfected a magic formula: market-based menu that is eclectic without going over the top; perfect preparation and presentation; and friendly, knowledgable, gently-paced service. I can't think of any other restaurant that delivers that kind of consistency year in and year out, without sacrificing innovation or whimsy. Thanks again, Stone Park!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'd go again
Went there a year ago and it was great. Stone Park Cafe did not disappoint. My wife had the tilefish and it was done perfectly. My pasta was a touch salty. Service, ambiance were good.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect anniversary dinner
Our table of four had three appetizers, four entrees, and four desserts. Every single one was outstanding. The room is cozy and unpretentious. It was a perfect dining experience.

Great restaurant with amazing food!
Try the short rib slider! They are fantastic! Amazing food, great atmosphere, and fun staff all equate to a perfect night!

A good night out
My wife and I needed a night out and tried this place. The gnocchi was outstanding. My wife ordered a pasta dish that she said was also excellent. It was Friday night and there were a couple kids in the back (maybe 5-8yrs old), but they were well behaved and didn't throw off the positive vibe at the place (disclosure: I'm a parent of a 4-year old). All-in-all, we enjoyed our time at Stone Park Cafe and can easily recommend it for dinner.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
I've eaten at Stone Park a few times. Each time the food has been outstanding and the service professional without being too stuffy. This is a casual place with great food...can be a bit noisy at times...add in the background music and conversation can be difficult. Nevertheless, I love this place and have never been disappointed.

Too Good for Kids!
This is a Five Star restaurant when it comes to the food and service, but I had to take off one star for ambiance because during an otherwise sublime dining experience, some extraordinarily narcissistic Park Slopers showed up with their wailing infants and toddlers. I know that it is difficult for restaurants to prevent this, and we will definitely be back, but why must this be an issue for grown-ups paying good money for good food in an adult environment?

Still One of Park Slope's Best
It had been some time since my wife and I visited Stone Park, not sure why. On this occasion we were meeting some new friends who had suggested SPC. Have to say it was an excellent suggestion, from the ambiance to the food to the wines, terrific all-around. Our waiter was friendly and courteous, and spot on for attending to the table, all without being intrusive in any way. The courses were not only well-prepared (as always), they were well spaced. The four of us had a chance to chat and converse, enjoy the meal, and sample the excellent wines. SPC has a diverse and fairly large wine list, and we were able to select wines that met our budget and hit the spot as well.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Stone Park is often our choice when taking out friends, family or clients. And it's never failed us. The food is reliably delightful, the service is personable, and the wine list is smartly organized, being easy to navigate even if one is not a die-hard connoisseur. And we've always felt that we got our money's worth, which is a welcome break from the inflation and self-aggrandizement that seems to have become the norm across brownstone Brooklyn.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
5 of us had dinner on a Friday night. The dishes were delicious, fresh and clever combinations. We felt comfortable there with an older couple and our daughter. We were given special attention: they brought us extra side dishes as a gift from the chef and brought us two extra desserts to try, as well, that were scrumptious! I'd highly recommend Stone Park Cafe.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
A true neighborhood gem
Everytime we come here, we always liked the food and service. It's not a great restaurant but the food is decent enough to leave without complaint. Service is always on par, not too overwhelming. Leaving the restaurant for about $40 per person tax & tips included with 2 shared appetizers, 4 entrees and 2 desserts is a steal.
