Stone Park Cafe
great for dinner**This review applies only to dinner (this is a popular spot for brunch, but I have never been--I have been turned off by the long lines and my assumption that they don't let you linger, so as to accommodate the maximum number of customers).
For dinner, however, this restaurant is phenomenal. I have lived in the neighborhood for a few of years and only went for the first time last week...and have been back twice already! The food is delicious and healthy. The cocktails are delicious. The service is professional and kind. It is not too loud (good spacing between the tables), and the temperature is ideal. I look forward to making this a regular choice for dining out, and I plan to bring family and friends when they come to the neighborhood.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurantThis is our favorite Brooklyn restaurant. The food is wonderful and quite inventive. The S-Th prix fixe market menu is an excellent option. The appetizers and the entrees are always superb and feature seasonal ingredients--usually one fish and one meat. They make their own ice cream and it is delicious. One of the best thing about this restaurant is that they take reservations so it is a good choice for adults and groups who do not want to stand outside in a line for a long time. We have always been seated immediately. Because the food is excellent and they take reservations, it is our go-to restaurant for out-of-town visitors who want to see why Brooklyn is so highly rated.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale and UnpretentiousThe dining experience that I enjoyed along with my husband and our friends was as upscale as any in Manhattan wiith a warm neighborhood feel. The octopus appetizer with chorizo and fingerling potatoes was a delicious take on Spanish tapas. My branzino was brought to the table whole and efficiently de-boned by our server. Cocktails were great. Although we chose to pass on dessert, I found the chewy little chocolate cookies that came with the check a nice touch! We will definitely be back again!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the top 3 -This is one of the top 3 - 4 restaurants in Park Slope. Interesting, modern cuisine, consistently well-executed. Nice mix of neighborhood demographic. Charming interior.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood gem.Stone Park is truly a neightborhood gem; wonderfully unpretentious atmosphere and consistently excellent, New American food. The hidden treasure of the menu is Stone Park's home made cavatelli and gnocchi, which are both exceptional; very delicate and sweet. I recommend either as a first or pasta course. Great place to dine with friends and linger over dessert, good port selection and cheese plate.
Although always crowded, we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The service was engaging and knowledgeable. Bartender makes a great Manhattan. Prices are very reasonable considering the high quality of menu, location, etc.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMChic. Great atmosphere andChic. Great atmosphere and service. Food was unique and delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only criticism is thatMy only criticism is that the food was over salted for my taste and I'm not one who likes my food without salt. I will certainly return but will simply ask that they tread more lightly on the salt. I really enjoyed the visit.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is mostly always pleasingFood is mostly always pleasing it seems to go through phases. Service is often a bit sketchy; some waitstaff could use a little more polish, even is it was only lunch.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis our 4th time dining atThis our 4th time dining at this restaurant.Each time we tried different entrees and were never diappointed. The food is great and I like that you have the option of the of ordering from the Daily Market Menu. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are never rushed.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to StoneWe have been going to Stone Park since they opened years ago. The prices have gone up markedly over that time but it remains one of the most reliably excellent options around. This time, I took my sister and her pre-teen son, who were in town. My nephew has a very limited list of food that he will eat. We asked if they would modify one plate so that it would consist of nothing more than chicken and fries, which they did exceptionally well but charged a steep price. Stone Park is a great go to place for a casual great quality meal.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysNot cheap but worth the price. Go here often and have never been disappointed. Took a friend this time who'd never been here before and now she's a huge fan, too.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and amazing!!!First time and amazing!!!

The brussel sprouts salad and the bone marrow tacos are very special, and everything I have ever eaten there is wonderful. And the staff is warm, friendly and very helpful. They do not rush you so you can have a conversation, and even the fellow guests are friendly. It is my favorite restaurant in Park Slope. I return over and over again.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone I bring to this restaurantEveryone I bring to this restaurant wants to return.
