    We moved to Park Slope about seven months ago after the birth of our first child. The fist time we had a "date" night,(about five months ago, thank god for grandmas), we tried Stone Park and it was great! This time it was my wife and I's joint birthday. Service was great, food was great, everything wonderful. We ate the pre-fix menu and notably, unlike most restaurants who offer up a pre-fix, the portion sizes were normal and not reduced. The octopus starter is excellent, and the hanger steak was cooked to perfection. Totally recommend this local gem.

    I have eaten here many times and am so impressed by how consistently delicious everything is. Their market menu is a real find with farm to table offerings that are always fresh and unique. I have had the same waiter quite a few times and he is always patient and sweet without being overly fussy. A real neighborhood gem.

    Everything was wonderful. Our server was attentive and warm. The food was outstanding! I had the pre-fixe, which was a great deal for the amount and variety of food served. A friend and I were able to dine outside, since the weather was nice. It was great to be able to enjoy the neighborhood vibe while dining. I would highly recommend Stone Park Cafe and can't wait to go back.

    My wife and I live within a block of this place, and walk past it almost every day. We've never really had occasion to actually go, but we went last week. It was absolutely fantastic. While everything was excellent, there were a few standouts. The ricotta cavatelli with sausage was one, and the other was the blue cheese gnocchi, which was a side for the leg of lamb dish. I've never had gnocci that light, and the blue cheese flavor was subtle enough not to overpower the lamb. Best part? The price! Seriously reasonable for a meal of this quality. Will *definitely* be going again.

    I went here with a loved for lunch two days ago. As a native of Brooklyn, NY who regularly eats on Park Slope's 5th Avenue, I was so surprised that I had missed this gem for so long! Stone Park Cafe is great for outdoor dining (we had our meal right next to the park). I recommend the scampi as well as the truffle whipped potatoes.

    A corner location, the restaurant is long and narrow. The dining room is also split between two levels so it feels more intimate. The pricing is a little strange as all entrees are between $24-$28. It makes the pasta expensive (though delicious) and the lamb and whole fish relative bargains. They put their specials on a $35, 3 course prix fixe menu which is the best deal available. Those items can also be ordered a la carte. The brussel sprout salad and beet salad (ordered from the prix fixe) were both delicious. The raviolini was excellent. The leg of lamb was well prepared but the meat itself was light on flavor. Glasses of rose and cab franc were just okay. Overall it's still a great restaurant and we'll be back.

    Beautiful indoor and outdoor dining space. The prefix menu for ~$35 comes with an app, main and dessert - I had the striped bass and it was delicious! Note that a lot of families come here with their children...at least when we were there for early dinner. There was more than one screeching baby, but suppose you deal with that if you go to dinner before 6PM! (We were starved) Enjoy fresh farm-to-table fare and delicious and inventive cocktails. Service was very friendly and helpful, but just a little slow at times.

    The place is an adorable corner place. It was beautiful out so we sat outside. The waitstaff was very nice and helpful. When I wasn't sure which wine to order he brought me out two generous tastings. My fiancé ordered a strong manhattan. We ordered from a pre fix $35 menu. Absolutely gorgeous and delicious. Additionally we ordered a half order of pasta for another app. Not required but the man next to is ordered it and it smelt delicious. My bass was cooked beautifully and my fiancé's meat was tender and wonderful. The desserts were a great touch, banana ice cream and a selection of ice cream and sorbet. There was parking right on the street and the neighborhood is of course a nice place. We really enjoyed this place and recommend it.

    I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and I was not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious (try the slider appetizer!) and the service was excellent. It's definitely on the expensive side, so I won't be going back here regularly, but for special occasions (or if you have deep pockets) it's a keeper.

    We returned to the SPC for our second visit and it was as great as our first. The food was delicious and the best Bronzini ever. There was an ample wine list from which to choose.Try one of their special cocktails. We had a French 75 which was so refreshing during the summer. Our waiter was excellent and the maître d' very helpful in getting us car service.

    This was our first visit after hearing rave reviews. We chose it for my birthday and we were thrilled to sit outside on the lovely terrace, as it was very loud inside. It's a perfect place for a special occasion (expensive!), the food was well prepared, inventive, fresh ingredients and stunning presentation. The wine list was impressively extensive, our server was well versed and helped us pick a perfect accompaniment for our main courses. Okay, so now the bad part-the service was SO SLOW. Again, it was romantic and relaxing, but we had to inquire about every course & about our bottle of rosé that had been stashed away to remain chilled - every time we'd sit there with empty glasses, finally we just kept it with us, sweating on the table.

    One of New York's gems, Stone Park offers diners moderately priced gourmet meals , well worth the trip to Park Slope! In addition to fabulous special menu options, the standard menu won't disappoint. Coupled with that a wine list that rivals any in NYC, and you should prepare yourself for a memorable culinary experience!

    I recently dined here on a sunday night for my birthday. This is vital information because of two reasons. First, I have dined at Stone Park three times previously and DID NOT enjoy it. The servers were obnoxious and rude, and my food was served room temperature each time. Second, my family (a party of 10) wanted to do my birthday brunch there and I nixed the idea based on my past experiences and we ate elsewhere. Later in the day however, when hunger raised it's vicious head, I decided to give Stone Park another try. We arrived to a quiet restaurant with few diners inside and had a good time. Service was great and the food was good. Great Job Stone Park! Thanks for changing a hard core cynics mind...

    Stone Park has always been a moderately priced and inventive sophisticate on the Park Slope scene. Cocktails, wine list, and food are all above average, and sometimes inspired. Service, which used to be outstanding, was struggling on a recent Saturday night. Let's hope this is an anomaly; it would be sad to think Stone Park is losing it's edge.

    My daughter lives in Brooklyn. We were spending the weekend together. We went to Park Slope to have dinner. I LOVED the area as well as the food. Portions aren't generous, but that's perfectly fine for us. There were many choices on the menu which we loved so it was hard for us to choose. I would say that the ONLY con was that it was a bit salty. The presentation was superb too.

    Very pleased with our first visit to Stone Park. Front/bar room where we sat had big windows. Unusual but delicious (marrow and scallops) appetizers and entrees plus well executed standards. The menu was a little smaller than expected but there were couple of specials and I expect the menu is updated regularly for repeat diners. Extensive wine list with a nice range of prices. Loved the music selections.

    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.
