Diner Reviews
  • "Our experience here was quite good. The outdoor bar was a nice place to enjoy a drink before dinner. They made excellent drinks, some with homemade ingredients, including a uniquely spicy ginger beer for a Dark & Stormy. The dinner was quite good with food well prepared and an attentive server. Since it was an anniversary for my wife and me, they gave us special menus and the staff all mentioned it, even in passing. Well done to all!"

  • "Two of us went on a weeknight, not crowded, but service was slow and waiter forgetful though polite. Like the refill for a glass of wine that never came, and a side dish that had to be re-requested when the entree came without it. Flatiron steak ordered medium rare, came out very rare. This is not on my A list."

  • "Went with family and friends to celebrate a birthday. We dined outdoors and enjoyed live music. The ambiance was outstanding and made for a very special night. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Portions were a little on the small side but the food was delicious. I would highly recommend The Stone House for a special event or perhaps just a romantic dinner for two. I can't wait to go again."

  • "Our service was excellent and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The jazz band during brunch on a Sunday is a nice touch! A great place to host friends and family for a special occasion. The homemade ice cream was delish. I will be back again soon!"

  • "This restaurant is in a very nice setting and has a great style about it. The menu is good to very good, and stands out above the average place in New Jersey. It has a great indoor space and also outdoor space but the seating outside especially the two tops where the chairs have slats are very uncomfortable. The service was pleasant and professional but could be a little more attentive, given the number of service people I sense management was really who wasn't being attentive. I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "Our party of 4 was very excited to experience the urban-meets-farm vibe of Stonehouse. My husband & I brought my daughter & her fiance for brunch to check out the assorted venue spaces for a wedding reception. The spaces are all spectacular. We had the choice of eating outside (on a pleasant July Sunday morning) or inside. We chose outside. At first I was nervous that if the sun came out, we could fry. But there was enough of an overhead pergola that almost anywhere you sat offered some shade. I would rate The Stonehouse with atmostphere as a 5+, service 3, food 4. The menu was creative. However, the little things I expected were missing; like an easy second cup of coffee and salt/pepper on the table to season our egg dishes."

  • "Salmon should be seasoned at least a little, and shouldn't be overcooked until it's dry and rubbery. Pizza shouldn't have a burnt crust. There should be some sort of a barrier between the seats in the back and the noisy, noisy kitchen. When food is sent back, isn't it customary to send the manager over? At least they comped the (inedible) pizza. This physically beautiful restaurant should do much better than this. I thought this would be a nice romantic spot for my partner and I to celebrate his birthday. What a disappointment."

  • "We made the Open Table reservations then emailed the managers and asked them to accommodate a small wedding party of 6 for a short ceremony on a busy Saturday night. They graciously offered their cabana area for a 1/2 hour and we had a lovely romantic ceremony that we'll remember forever. The management and service were wonderful and the food was fantastic. I would recommend the setting and menu to anyone!!! We'll always come back!!"

  • "My husband and I got married at Stone House and knew that we wanted to go back to celebrate our anniversary. We already knew we loved the food from our wedding and we loved the service as well. Our dinner to celebrate our anniversary was perfect! The wait staff and the food and setting were just as wonderful as we remembered from our wedding and we are anxiously awaiting our next anniversary to go back! The food was magnificent, the live music added a nice touch to the environment, and the overall experience was perfect. Stone House is by far our favorite restaurant."

  • "My husband and I and another couple were very disappointed with the food and service. Our friend ordered oysters and the first one he tried was spoiled. Our dinner was mediocre and expensive. The skirt steak was not prepared correctly, the potatoes were not hot."

  • "We have eaten at Stone House before and always enjoyed it and this time was no exception. We had not been there is a while and didn't realize that they had added a large outdoor seating area; the area is very nice and has a funky table fit for a group. The wine and cocktail selection is always nice. The biggest bonus for the food is that they use many of the vegetables that are grown in NJ and are in-season. They are on the pricey-side but the food is worth it as it's matched with good service and a nice ambiance."

  • "I can see why this place hosts weddings- its a beautiful location and the decor is very well done. The food was great- there wasnt a single plate I could complain about. Loved the wild board baby back ribs and the angry mussels!! My only complaint was the AC was way too high, and the bread guy was totally flakey- no pun intended. We had to flag him down JUST to get some bread. And then when they ran out of a certain kind, I told him I could wait for the next loaf to come out and he basically ignored me for the rest of the evening. It wasn't until AFTER dinner I asked him SO..... is the italian bread DONE? and THATS when he offered me more bread. Thanks. I don't need it for dessert. He was not on top of his game."

  • "Skimpy plate of calamari ( about 12). Muscles weren't fresh. Four didn't taste right so I didn't eat them, four the shells never opened. Entrees were nothing to write home about."

  • "Words cannot express how wonderful our meal was at the stone house. Excellent service and food! The chef sent over a complementary salad and we received a parting gift of cookies as we left. I almost felt like I was vacationing on an island when sitting outside. Will be back!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "One of the most beautiful restaurants ever. Stone, glass, wood, gardens, views, fire pits and floating bars. Awesome! And the menu!. Words like artisanal and free-range and local and home-grown. Even sushi! But we have the same reaction every time we go, "how sad that the food and service don't measure up to the look". My wife ordered the butternut squash soup which was great, and filet mignon which was overcooked and tasteless. I had steamers in a very rich broth that may have just been too rich for my taste. Service was lacking with things like bread service arriving after the entrees. And a very tardy check-back by the waiter. We did sit outside on the deck and it was beautiful. I am so hoping they will eventually get it right."

  • "I usually frequent this restaurant for special occasions but also enjoy now and then just because it's so fabulous. The professionalism of the host and wait staff is consistent as is the presentation and quality of the food."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We have been here before & thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. In fact it had been one of my favorite restaurants and I have introduced many friends to this place. This time though the service was really poor. No crudités or bread were ever served and my friend's salad never arrived. Our waiter seemed to be in lala land. The entrees were delicious but the lack of service and extended waiting for our drinks and food has taken away my enthusiasm for this restaurant."

  • "Sitting outside is the best! Great place to go with friends or just a couple. Live music. You feel like you're in Napa. I love that they grow their own produce too."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We sat on the balcony overlooking the patio on a perfect night to eat outdoors. The décor is beautiful with wonderful lighting and stonework. The food, however, is just mediocre. There was a live band that we enjoyed and they gave us a bag of cookies when we left. So it was a bit of a mixed bag."

  • "Off the beaten path for a business dinner. I brought 2 out-of-town colleagues for dinner so they could experience somewhere new after dining at most of the restaurants in the Bridgewater / bedminster area already. They were impressed with the atmosphere and they raved about the food. The only downside was the volume of the band in proximity to our outdoor dining. A little loud for business dinner. Will definitely be back!"

  • "Food was pricey and just ok. Service was poor. Waiters tarted out good and then half-way through the meal would not return. Super long wait for food when it was not even crowded. Atmosphere border on chain restaurant banquet cheesy."

  • " we were recommended to try this restaurant to celebrate our 59th wedding anniversary. We were very satisfied with our choice. The service was very attentive with the nice touch of having happy 59th anniversary printed on the top of our menu. The food was tasty though the hanger steak was a little chewy. The 16 ounce T-bone was excellent. we were treated to 2 glasses of champagne on the house which was greatly appreciated.We highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "This was my 2nd visit to the Stone House, the 1st being a few years ago with a group of friends. 2 of us went. We sat out on the deck attached to the main building. The deck is very nice, with a high view of the outside bar and tables. Very pretty Great ambience BUT the wooden chairs were SO uncomfortable. We told our waiter & he had pads brought out which made a big difference in comfort. The waiter was wonderful. Great suggestions, friendly, fun personality. Even the bus boy did a wonderful job. Really enjoyed the food. I had the pork t-bone which was so delicious, especially the mashed white sweet potatoes. My friend had the Bronzini special-said it very good but not amazing. Ahhh, and the mixed drinks. They were delicious! I"

  • "A party of three, we dined late into the brunch hour. When we arrived the restaurant was nearly deserted. There was a jazz trio playing but they ended and packed up soon after we were sat. Given that it was a lovely day, we would have done better to eat outdoors than inside. The outdoor and insides decor are inviting. We ordered separate entrees. One choice was later found to be sold out. The waiter was not sure of the menu which is not a good thing - perhaps he was new. When the food came the rare entree was given to the wrong diner. The food was not remarkable. We will dine again at the dinner hour to see how the restaurant functions at its peak before judging whether to recommend to others."

  • "Took hubby and my 2 kids there for father's day brunch, food is good , nothing extraordinary. The waitress told us that they play live music on the outside sitting area on weekends starting at 6pm so we want to go back to check that out PS: you can make your own s'mores!!!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This place never gets better, if you sit and watch this place run you would think you are eating at a diner. Staff running in all directions overlapping tables not knowing what the other is doing this place is completely out of control. All the while believing the employees are are actually providing a quality dining experience. The managers of this place should be fired along with more than half its staff. We planned on a wedding here but after giving the place more than three chances we are not going to risk a $40,000.00 investment. The food is still not bad, so if you want to eat in a nice out of control environment, the show begins each night at 7PM."

  • "The atmosphere at Stonehouse trumps all. Great outdoor dining spot when weather is good. Solid food. Solid menu. However, the menu should be updated. I don't think its changed in a while. Service has slipped tremendously over time as well. New management ?? Had to ask for things twice too many times. Bar scene was non-existent. I hope Stonehouse is not falling apart."

  • "It's an absolute shame that this restaurant doesnt pull it together in the kitchen. the outdoor area is beautiful and the inside has a greta warm feel to it. The food was terrible. It took forever to get served drinks and bread, the ceasar type salad was so bitey you couldn't even eat it. The pizza was decent, but all of the other dishes were lackluster. I will not be going back here for dinner any time soon."

  • "We have been to the Stone House many times but this was the first time we had the opportunity to sit outside in the porch area. As usual the food, wine, ambiance and service were top drawer, however the comfort of the seats was deplorable. It was like there was a piece missing on the seat and when we asked the server she advised it was a common complaint. The entire dinner you could not wait to get up, not the experience you are looking for when celebrating your anniversary. Maybe that is the plan to move people along but it made for a VERY uncomfortable dining experience since you felt like you were falling off of the chair the entire night. I would go back but sadly not for outdoor dining."

  • "We went to Stone House for a 50th birthday party, in early March, with 15 ladies and were able to use the enclosed upper room. The food and service were outstanding and we had a wonderful experience. I was intrigued by the outside space that was closed at the time, so we came back on a lovely Saturday night in June with 2 couples. We ate inside and enjoyed every dish, sushi appetizer, asparagus salad, swordfish, scampi, flat iron steak and trout. We had an after dinner drink at the outside bar and enjoyed the wonderful ambience and drinks. The smore's table looked like lots of fun and we are trying to plan an event to use the "floating appetizer" table. The food and the whole atmosphere were #1. Next time brunch! "

  • "The renovations that took place at this location over the last several years has changed it into a fine dining restaurant with attentive staff and delicious meals. Aside from the limited parking and 2week advance reservation request the place is great for a date night, or a special occasion. Outdoor seating is plentiful for warm weather days."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I found the restaurant to be over priced for the quality of the food. Because they are also a catering facility, the valet service is long and confusing. They first tried to seat us outside, the table was uneven and in direct sunlight so we asked to move inside. The food was just average for the price . I would not return to this resturant or recommend to anyone. For a high end resturant, I felt the staff was just ok, they all hung around the front desk area talking. Also, felt the music was too loud in the dinning area."

  • "Stone House came through. A simple request in my online reservation, "outside table for a romantic 24 yr wedding anniversary", was followed. We were too stuffed after dinner for desert but, our great server Jeremy provided champagne for an anniversary toast. "

  • "I picked Stone House for my friend's birthday and it was a huge let down. From the moment we walked in, there were issues. We requested to sit outside, and we're sat inside instead. After one person declined bread, the gentleman walked away without serving everyone else. Appetizers were good, but the ravioli needed another few minutes of boiling (they were crunchy!). One of our steaks was very undercooked, and it took another 25 minutes to get a new steak, which was then so over cooked it was almost not edible. A glass of wine we ordered at the beginning of dinner didn't come until our plates were cleared. All of our entrees were very under seasoned. We all had to add a significant amount of salt/hot sauce to have any flavor! So upsetting!"
