A great experience
We were skeptical going in because we had dined there before a few years ago and it wasnt great. But we saw the reviews on open table so we thought we would give it another chance. First of all we were greeted with complimentary champagne ( it was nice quality too) and the chef sent us an amuse of butternut squash soup that was phenominal. The vegetarian dish the chef prepared for my wife was exquisite, not just pasta prima vera. The lamb chops were excellent as well, so flavorful with exotic spices. Our server Anna was efficient and professional. We will highly recommend this place to all of our friends.

Overall an excellent meal.
Overall an excellent meal. Mussels, clams, salmon, tuna and OCTOPUS!(all four of us agreed-the best we have ever had) all very fresh and well prepared. The servers and the host could not have been more pleasant.The desserts were ok but did not live up to the rest of the meal.The wine list was nice but could use more selection. Prices are more than reasonable. We will be back.

The Best Meal We H In A Long Time.
The best meal we have had in a long time. Period. We were worried when we walked in because we were the only ones there. So we both ordered a steak. Perfectly cooked, big portion. The broccoli rabe was amazing, and the parmesan mashed potatoes were awesome. And the prices are too low. This place should be packed. We already know that we are ordering the duck and branzino next time we go back. Small wine list but very good wines and again inexpensive. Casual friendly service. You cant go wrong.

What an unexpected pleasant surprise. The food was spot on, presentation and taste were exceptional. We had the duck and the tuna and the chef sent us a small sampling of duck confit, nice touch. Great wine selection for value. The service was casual, friendly and knowledgable. This place is in the middle of nowhere but definitely worth finding.

This was our first visit and
This was our first visit and the first of many to come. Service is extremely attentive and friendly. Food delicious and beautifully presented. Only small quibble: the background music is not dining-friendly. Something mellow would better suit the venue, if classical is not the owner's "thing."
We stopped in the pastry shop before dinner and were sorely tempted by the beautiful desserts.

We will definitely be back.
We are from Chicago and were visiting our daughter in So. Brunswick. We were going to our favorite restaurant in Princeton but thought we might be short on time so we found this place on open table. Well we might not be going back to eat in Princeton for a while. The food and service were excellent. The food here rivals any of the great restaurants in Princeton, New York or Chicago. I had the salmon, it was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and the squash with olives and tomato were treated with the same respect, perfect. My husband had the lamb bolonaise and we couldnt decide what was better. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and its ingredients and basically ordered for us. We will definitely be back on our next trip out .

Parking lot was jammed --
Parking lot was jammed -- must have been a wedding or some sort of celebration -- but dining room service was spot-on. Wonderfully attentive staff, delicious food. All that a birthday brunch should be. Our thanks.

Re-visiting after 10 years
I I used to live 7 minutes away then, now it's 25 miles. After finding them on OpenTable, I wanted to re-visit. I remembered takeaways of solid Mid Eastern and Mediterranean fare. Now, there is a spark more creativity to the food as well as a tastefully decorated bar and dining room.
I had the 2 course selection that featured the lamb lentil soup ( I'm sure I remember having this occasionally) , and then a pasta entre: orrichietti with sausage, asparagus and broccoli rabe. The pasta was al dente and the veggies firm, how I like it, so there was nothing soup-like about this combo. 2 glasses of pinot noir was ideal with both courses.
No longer having ties to the area; I'll find a visit to go back that way, if only for a very good lunch.

Delightful dining. Spectacular
Delightful dining. Spectacular appetizers (Portuguese mussels and clams). Tasty lamb chops. Too full for dessert so we asked them to package the chocolate mousse cake which we had the next day. Yummy!

Great food at reasonable prices
The food was excellently prepared to the specifications of the customer.The service was impeccable .The ambience,however,lacked the dignity equal to the excellence of the food and service........tablecloths would help!........again,great food and great services.

We are fairly new to Stone
We are fairly new to Stone Grill at Pierres, but have to start by saying we have never enjoyed bread and dipping oil as much anywhere. We could have made a meal on the bread alone.
The daily prix fixe is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy three courses for a very reasonable price, but unfortunately we like the same dishes. Next time one of us will try something different.
Service is top-rate with friendly staff. Delightful dining. Thank you, Pierre!
