    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.

    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.
