    We have been to the restaurant ywo other times and it was very good. But this week our filet mignons came out extremely undercooked (medium well as rare) and no spoon was brought with our soup and when asked for a spoon the bus boy gave attitude and said "IN A MINUTE". Weve never experienced this before at any restaurant.

    Parents of bride and groom celebrated their children's 1 yr anniversary without their children! Went for sentimental reasons to re-experience the joy of the day. Carissa the wedding coordinator stopped by to chat which was very nice. However service could have been better. Waitress seemed inexperienced by Stone House standards and bar music was overpowering. Still had a fun night. The place is gorgeous.

    This is a very pretty restaurant in a beautiful setting. The food is very good although not stellar. Service is attentive, and the little bag of cookies as you leave is a nice touch. It seems like going on the early side is desirable as the noise level seems to rise as the restaurant becomes more crowded. The prices, while not outlandish, are definitely on the high side, which would make Stone House a better choice for special occasions.

    My fiance and I went there for dinner to sample some of the food for our upcoming wedding reception. The staff was friendly and accommodating, but the food was nothing special and over priced. The appetizers were not very tasty. The $16 burger I ordered (the least expensive item I could find) was raw inside. I had ordered it to be cooked medium. It was a good thing I cut the burger in half before I started eating it. Had to send it back. My fiance order 6 oysters for $18. Although the ambiance was pleasant, we won't be back again.

    Several people had recommended this restaurant, however, one of my friends tells me afterwards that she was not impressed, and we certainly were not either. There was definitely something up with our waiter but we couldn't quite figure out what. He either didn't speak to us at all, or spoke so softly we couldn't even hear him. He never checked to see how our meal was or asked if we needed anything until he was bringing the check. We had to ask a passing employee for pepper for both the appetizer and main course. We spent much of the evening talking about how bad our server was, and for an upscale restaurant we expected so much more. The food was nice and we would try this restaurant again to see if we have a different experience next time.

    Eating out a lot I have noted that is you go to your "favorite" restaurant 10 times at least once or hopefully not twice something will not measure up to the usual excellence. This was the most recent case where the oysters we ordered were bad ...The folks were very apologetic and naturally did not charge us for the oysters. The server (SETH) was outstanding, knew the menu and gave great recommendations both food and wine. We will go back as this was obviously an off night

    Beautiful surroundings, decor of stone & wood, white candles on chandeliers. Everything was delicious: margherita pizza to share among 4 plus appetizers of fried calamari, wonderful crab cake, dense with meat & no filler, & salads. 2 of us had filet mignon; the medium-well was more like medium (but fine with the person who ordered it ) & the medium was too rare in the center. Rather than send it back, I knew I would bring half of it home so it would be fine when reheated.There was no problem subbing truffle parm fries for roasted potatoes.The other 2 diners chose the rainbow trout special & the swordfish & were both very pleased. We had an extra side of mac & cheese. Desserts great!Cookies upon leaving a nice touch.

    We were beyond impressed with everything from the grounds, food & service. Their outside is like nothing we had ever been to. It had the most unique table that floated food around using a lazy river. If you want to bring kids, they have a large fire pit where you can make your own s'mores. For sports fans, there was ample seating with a large TV screen near the bar. If you want to relax and hear live music, they have that too! Stone House was equally beautiful on the inside. The food was exceptional and I cannot wait to not only go back, but to try their other locations!

    I enjoyed the Chicken Liver Appetizer. My husband had the crab cakes which was delicious. The Short Rib entree was off the bone yummy. My friend had the Salmon Entree which was dry. I had the Lamp for entree, it was 2-bone in pieces, a lot of fat and bone not much meat. the wild rice on the side was moderate. We had the Rhubarb with oats and vanilla ice cream, was too sweet and very buttery & liquid.

    Service gets worse & worse. A shame because I used to love coming here. Waiter/waitress just disappears. We were only 1 of 2 tables inside! Place was EMPTY---so I can't imagine where the heck our waiter went. Son asked for steak sandwich withOUT the onions. Came smothered in onions. We finished our brunch entrees, then sat with empty plates for about 35 minutes. We couldn't even find a server to ask where ours was! Was like they all went home. When he finally took our coffee & dessert order, the coffee came out, we sat for 20 minutes & drank our coffee, then the desserts came out? When S'mores desserts arrived brownies were SWIMMING in pool of completely melted ice cream. Clearly been sitting out waiting to be picked up! Each was a $10 mess

    I'd been looking forward to brunch at the Stonehouse for sometime. I had the pleasure of attending a private event brunch and couldn't wait to go back. Everything was delicious, the staff was attentive and courteous. The food was served promptly and was as fresh and appealing as I'd remembered. Our experience was made even better by the live jazz band that accompanied our meal. I'll be back again.

    The service at this restaurant is terrible. After waiting 25 minutes for a waiter to come to our table, my husband had to go up to the bar and get our drinks then complained to the hostess that no one had come to wait on us. Finally a waiter came over and took our order. Our dinner was out within 10 minutes of placing the order and the food was less than mediocre. This was supposed to be a nice restaurant and it turned out to be very disappointing. We have had better food at a diner. We will not be going back and I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    We sat outdoors at Stone House on a beautiful Friday night. There was a 3 piece soft rock band playing in the background at just the right volume. We were with 1 other couple. We started with cocktails - all good. Then ordered a number of appetizers and dishes to share with the table. The cheese plate, baby clams with chorizo, kale and spinach salad, ribs, short rib pizza, soft shell crab sushi roll, all delicious! The wait staff was happy to accommodate us by bringing the food out a few dishes at a time. After dinner we had s'mores at the fire pit table and continued to enjoy the music. All around, a perfect evening!

    Some friends and I had a drink at the outdoor bar and dinner outside on a recent Friday night. A small band playing but the music was not overpowering. A couple of slips in the service .. no sugar served with the coffee (and not long after it did arrive it was taken away for another table), a second serving of bread was not offered (that may be policy, but I prefer to serve myself anyway, rather than have it tonged to me from a tray), second drinks were not offered (we may not have taken them) and I don't understand why we couldn't put our bar tab on our dinner bill. But really, these are minor things in the grand scheme. Food was nicely prepared and presented, arrived hot, David the waiter was friendly and helpful - a lovely evening.

    Servers were inexperienced. Our waiter stopped in the middle of taking our order to do something else and then cam back. One of the busboys reached over the whole table to take a plate off the table. .The appetizers took way too long to come out. The portions were skimpy. They had the nerve to charge an extra $1.00 for ice in a cocktail will not return - too many better options

    We came to Stone House for our 4th anniversary. The staff truly made our dinner a memorable experience. They surprised us with a personalized menu, complimentary glasses of champagne and a wonderful table in the back garden area. The ambiance was spectacular and there was even a local jazz band playing. It was so romantic. My husband and I used to come here often when we lived in Watchung. However, we've since moved out of state and still make the effort to come back for our anniversary each year.

    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.
