    My wife & I have dined at Stone Park Cafe a number of times over the past 2 years. The service is always great and the prices are reasonable. This time my wife ordered off the Daily Market Menu (Cod) and I had the Leg of Lamb. Both meals were tasty and flavorful.

    My husband, son, and I had dinner at the Stone Park Cafe and thought it was outstanding except for the noise level. It was early evening so there were quite a few kids dining with their parents. We really don't mind this at all but the overall noise was exceptionally loud. The food and service were outstanding and we would definitely go back the next time we're in Brooklyn.

    I recently had a wonderful lunch at an unfussy yet seasoned cafe . It was such a pleasant experience where you felt like you were in such good hands. I usually don't order pasta because my husband makes it at home but I could resist their Swiss chard raviolini. It was amazing! Our server was invisible but nurturing and professional . I can't wait to return.

We try to go Sun to Thurs night when the prix fixe market menu is on as it is always excellent. But brunch is great too. And the scallop and bone marrow tacos are sublime!

    We enjoyed an early Sunday dinner on a gorgeous spring day, close to the outdoor seating...perfect spot. The food was delicious. We shared 2 salads...shaved brussel sprouts and kale...both were wonderful. We also had 2 half portion pastas...cavaletini (sp?) and raviolitini (sp?)...so delicious! I'd definitely recommend this restaurant and I will return.

    My husband and I don't venture to Brooklyn often, but were very happy with our dinner here. I had the frisée salad with poached egg and hubs had a stuffed rabbit loin appetizer that was a special. Both were very good. I had the cracked pepper pappardelle with rabbit for my entree which was very nice. Our server was very helpful and we very much enjoyed our dinner.

    Our food was superb, from the kale salad to the short rib slider, from the skate to the pork chop. The truffle mashed potatoes were heavenly.

    We really enjoyed our food and wine at the Stone Park Cafe. Everything was extremely well done, the service was attentive and timely. it was just how you would want your fine dining experiences to always be. Nothing was over the top, nothing was lacking, it was just a straight forward excellent meal. We don't go out often so when we do we try to make it count and this time it certainly did.

    Though I would have wanted a few more choices, me and my two companions had a leisurely, friendly dinner - no pressure even after hanging at our prime table for 2 hours and the crowd was building at the bar. So accommodating, so neighborly, but still elegant in ambience and preparation, ingredients.

    I have only been here once so far. The food and the service surpassed my expectations. Would definitely recommend Stone Park to friends. None of the food disappointed. The scallop and marrow tacos were unbelievable, the shaved brussel sprout salad exceeded expectations, my lamb chops were cooked to absolute perfection, and my girlfriend's pasta was some of the best I have had in a long time. Somehow Stone Park dodged the bullet that unfortunately plagues a majority of the Brooklyn New American restaurants: having cool sounding menu items that should be good but are executed terribly. One of my favorite restaurants I have tried in Park Slope so far. Highly recommended.

    Excellent food, wine, service. But do they really need canned rock music on the stereo? It raises the noise level (which is still tolerable, but barely) and doesn't really add anything.

    Very engaging and pretty restaurant with an active bar scene. Service was attentive and wine steward very helpful with a moderate size, yet interesting wine list. Food was well prepared, with the exception of chicken a bit on the dry side. Dishes were generous and well constructed, especially the Pork Chop and Cod, both terrifically turned out. Desserts were also terrific, the ice cream was delicious and they remembered the special occasion which was terrific; all in all, a very nice choice.

    Good spot for any occassion. I was not particularly pleased with my Farm-to-Table choice. I have had more imaginative roast duck and squash elsewhere. The pasta was too laden with oil. Wine was great and the bread fantastic . ( A restaurant that cares about bread is a real plus!) This was my first time. Next time I will order from the regular menu.The service was good although I felt there were too many staff moving about whereas they ought to have been less conspicuous. The restaurant atmosphere is lively and gives the appearance of being a favorite neighborood spot.

Leaving the restaurant for about $40 per person tax & tips included with 2 shared appetizers, 4 entrees and 2 desserts is a steal.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.
