    This was our first time at Cobblestone's and we were quite impressed. The service was friendly, the food was fairly good, and the décor was 100% new england. However, the cocktails were what stuck with us...having just re-watched "Casino Royale"; I ordered (several of) the "Vesper" drinks and was struck by the competency of the barkeeper. I imagine we'll be back.

The waitress was very attentive, food and drinks were delivered in a timely manner, without being pushy. The kitchen were creative in accomodating some special requests due to dietary restrictions. Overall, our experience was a very pleasurable one and we would happily go back again.

    I've eaten here several times and have always had a good meal. I always order fish whether it be the fish tacos, salmon or the special and have never been disappointed. The service is very good - attentive but not bothersome. It can be a little noisy but what restaurant isn't especially when it's busy and it's never been to the point where I couldn't carry on a conversation at my table. Overall, I would recommend Cobblestones as a good solid choice for dining.

    The food was very good and everyone finished their meal without any complaints(there were eight of us.) The table was round, which was ideal for our group, and although the room was a bit noisy, the ambiance at Cobblestones was very nice. Our only complaint was the service was a bit slow and the parking situation was the worst I've ever encountered. But you can't beat the food and restaurant interior

    Excellent except when trying to substitute a veggie for another veggie. Our waiter had to check with the chef first. The haddock was not the best I've had and the mashed potatoes were horrible. The appetizers and salad was excellent. The bread and butter was very good. The service from our waiter was over the top - he was excellent. It's a very nice restaurant and I'm sure I would return, but would not order the haddock again.

    They advertised a warming fireplace in the lobby. It wasn't burning. The restaurant was almost empty, even for a Monday, brightly lit, not very romantic. Parking is pitiful. The menu stated "white truffle" on one of the appetizers when actually it was white truffle oil. My prime rib and my husband's New York strip were cold, our baked potatoes were lukewarm and didn't even melt butter. We skipped dessert not wanting to take the risk. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

    Cobblestones and its sister Moonstones in Chelmsford never disappoint. I happen to think that Cobblestones is a bit better, but I like Moonstone’s location better and go there more often. This time we were 6 and together we ordered a wide variety of items. All were very good, except, perhaps the Onion Soup, which was a bit over salty. Always recommended.

    Strange odor greeted us as we entered the dining room--fishy smell--accompanied by a blast of hot air; an auspicious start to a nice dinner. The smell dissipated by the time we were seated. The menu was nice with some creative features and mostly standard fare. We shared the fried brie appetizer, a delicious twist on the fairly standard baked brie appetizer. It was tasty, though a bit small for the $8 or $10 price. My "theater cut" prime rib was fine and I liked the roasted half head of garlic garnish (though my dining mates were a bit confused by it!). Mashed potatoes were nothing special and onion strings were adequate. I tried a specialty drink: "Muddy Waters." Delicious mix that I would have again and dessert worthy.

    The food was very slow to come out and some of the meals were not prepared as we had ordered. The staff was nice to us but the kitchen can use some better management in theuir food service. The presentation of the meals were not good. Small portions on large plates made the meals look even smaller. We were going to buy gift certificates for the holidays but changed our minds after we ate there.

    What a great find from your website. Truly enjoyed our entire experience. The hostess was welcoming. Our reserved table was in a more formal diningroom. When we respectfully asked if we could sit in the pub (a more casual environment) the hostess graciously accomodated our request. Matthew the bartender was well versed with the menu. He made us feel right at home with his great personality. We started with shrimp cocktail & Wellfleet oysters. Followed up with a sirloin steak. Rather than have the carbo filled sides we opted for a house salad with fresh tomato/basil/vinagrette (not from a bottle). Everything was so fresh & perfectly prepared. Kudos to the chef & the entire staff! Looking forward to going back real soon!

    The server was harried;she left us several times in the middle of trying to take our order to attend to something else. We felt as if she was annoyed with our questions. We did not get bread until we asked, and she did tell not tell us all the specials;we got the full list by listening to another server describe them to the table next to us. My husband had the prime rib, and it was great. My filet was overcooked and flavorless. There were no options for green vegetables on the menu. The "vegetable" choices consisted of several varieties of potatoes, carrots, cauliflower au gratin, and the vegetable of the day was corn. I asked if I could get the cauliflower plain and was told no.

    Prior to this visit, I'd only ever spent time in the bar area of Cobblestones. This time, we were seated in a quieter dining area. There weren't many other diners, unsurprising for a Tuesday night, and our waitress checked in at appropriate intervals. She was very helpful in communicating with the kitchen over dietary restrictions, and they were happy to accommodate gluten-free needs. All in all, a great dining experience, though a bit on the pricey side. However, food quality was great, and drinks were delicious.
