Diner Reviews
  • "One of our favorite places. The food is always very good. Service can be a bit slow, but the servers are friendly and overall it's a great experience. On this visit we had a very minor suggestion (not even a complaint), but the manager came over, took the time to listen and thank us, and bought us a dessert; it was totally unnecessary for her to do that, but a great customer service response."

  • "The steak I ordered was delicious and came out at a perfect temp. The concept is different and it seems to inflate the prices. Since all servers are also bar tenders and cooks and they don't seem to have designated "tables" we waited awhile to have our order taken. It seemed sharing the tables part of the communication wasn't all there. Over all, I wasn't impressed with the menu. I would eat there again if a member of my group wanted to, but it wouldn't be my first choice or on my suggestion list."

  • "I made a reservation a few days before my group lunch vas changed it a few hours before lunch. They had a table waiting for us. The service was excellent, the food was excellent, and everyone in my party was happy. The only comment is the noise and music were a little loud for conversations."

  • "First time at this restaurant. Staff was nice and very attentive. The three of us had their famous shrimp and grits and LOVED it!!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Stone's Cove KitBar is a great place to get some really good food. The grits are the best I have ever had and I'm from the south so that is saying a lot! Watching them prepare food is a really great concept. Thanks for another great meal and a wonderful time!"

  • "The deco is eclectic. The cooking is done in the middle with a large bar surrounding the kitchen so people can watch. The service was quick without constantly interrupting. The menu had some unique items. We had the portobello flat bread, which had balanced flavors. The catch of the day was red snapper which was well cooked. The asparagus served with it were firm but tender."

  • "Food was good. Shrimp and grits was tasty, as was the tuna appetizer. Service was prompt and friendly. Only comment is that there few standalone tables - most seating is around (expanded) bar type counters. That is OK for one or two people, especially at lunch. But, it does not permit a more "private" setting if people want to talk privately."

  • "It was a very enjoyable experience. We were greeted warmly, the staff was friendly and efficient throughout, the food was outstanding, and the price was more than acceptable. They went out of their way to make my wife's Birthday memorable. I highly recommend the Herndon Stone's Cove KitBar Restaurant."

  • "The fish tacos were delicious. I'll be returning to try many other tempting menu items."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Stones Cove had a really unique concept. The kitbar, with the chef-tender who took your drink and food order and cooked food as well as poured for you...and food prepared as you watch. Unfortunately new upper management with eyes on btm line pushing for faster table turnover are not watching training. New hires are not tending their guests well and just the opposite is happening. Drinks not refilled, orders not taken. Food is still good, but the old comradarie with the chef-tenders is gone. Don't know the names any more. Neighborhood joint feel is gone."

  • "Delicious, fresh, and inventive. Loved the small plates and the crab cakes were amazing."

  • "Stone's Cove provides top-notch service. All servers are there to assist you, as opposed to the traditional restaurant where you are assigned a single server. The food menu is relatively small, but I imagine most will find something that suits them. The quality of the food is excellent. I have tried roughly half the entrées and have yet to be disappointed. The kitbar is a must visit if you are in the neighborhood."

  • "We took visiting grandparents there -- we had a great time ordering lots of different things. The food was excellent and there was a fun cocktail menu. The service is great and diners can watch the servers prepare the food. The place is a little noisy; otherwise great. "

  • "My wife and I have been going here regularly since they first opened and it gets better every time. Many restaurants get comfortable in their ways but the crew at Stone's Cove keep introducing new menu items, new events and new ways to make customers happy. i can't say enough good things about the food and the staff. Keep up the great work and we'll keep spending our money with you!"

  • "Great restaurant for a low key night. Your table is literally around the bar and you get to watch all your food being prepped and made. The food is outstanding. I have been 5 times and never had anything I didn't like. The drinks and food are hand crafted. I love it!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Really nice menu to select from. I'd consider it Modern American food, which borrows from everything that is trendy right now (flat breads, sashimi, etc). "

  • "We have been going to Stone's Cove since it opened about 1-2 times a month. They have always had great food and service. Best place for a fun night out in the area."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Food was great, but service could have been better. I don't know if it was because they were more crowded than usual on a Thursday night, but we really weren't "feeling the love" on this visit. We had to flag down servers for empty glasses and to place orders. Only once did someone come by and ask us how we were doing; all other interactions were when we flagged someone or someone came to deliver us food or beverage. Food was good. Hamburger sliders were amazing. Always a fan of the Macinac flatbread, which didn't fail to please. And so glad they will still serve the edibations - they aren't on the menu anymore, but they still do them and they are the best!"

  • "Service is good...sanjay is very endearing and kind :) LOVE the food....so many good choices. we had the tuna appetizer this time....also love the mini meatloaf on mashed potatoes AND the lobster cones are fun too !!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "I understand this place has been here for a while, but tucked back behind a Red Hot and Blue so I never saw it. Concept has your bar server also serving as your chef. At lunch the service was great and food was very tasty. We tried the upside down meatloaf cupcakes and got 3 small (but filling) cakes on top of mashed potatoes. Plenty for lunch. We also tried the crab lettuce wraps and were again pleasantly surprised by the quality of crab - no filler - mixed with scallions, tomatoes and other flavors. Again lots of food. Not sure about the lime sugar as an added flavor provided, but some may like it. I will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Once again I had shrimp and grits, and once again I have to conclude it's the best I have had. Also split the chicken salad wrap with my wife and now have another favorite to look forward too. Probably should try a lot of the other things on the menu but these are too good to pass up. Excellent service to boot!"

  • "This is just a fun place to go for a bite and a drink. The flatbread is phenomenal, the happy hour specials are special and the ambience is fun!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "From the moment I walked in, the ambiance grabbed me. A winding counter, manned by a welcoming team to serve my every need. Starting with a refreshing draft, followed by a delicious Greek salad and then the spicy macaroni, every bite was a tasteful sensation. There was no rush to get me out and every few minutes another team member checked to make sure I had everything I needed. This was a definitely unique experience that I recommend everyone try! "

  • "Food was good but service was mediocre. We made dinner reservations. We arrived on time but we were told that our table was not ready. We waited and ordered drinks while waiting for our RESERVED table. When we were finally seated, it took 10+ minutes for our server to acknowledge our presence. After we got our first drink, we waited forever to get our server's attention to order our appetizers. When he finally showed up, I told him that we were frustrated. He apologized and gave us some lame excuse. We got our next round of order and more waiting after that. We are not going back here. Reston Town Center has so much more to offer and we don't have to deal with mediocre service. "

  • "We ate at Stone's Cove Kitbar for the 1st time, this past weekend. We sat at the bar & were able to watch our food, plus the food of others, being prepared. Everything was delicious & the servers/chefs were super nice. We can't wait to go back."

  • "We have been going to Stones Cove since it opened. The food is always good, cooking right in front of you in the "Kit Bar" area. The service is friendly and attentive. I hve never had a bad meal here and we continue to come back with friends and family whenever we get the chance. "

  • "A fun place to go, though I wouldn't recommend bringing kids as the tables extend out from the bar. My group of 4 were not at one of those, but at one that was away from the bar. The service was slow, but the food was good. I will go back, but would prefer a bar table."

  • "Love the concept and atmosphere at Stone's Cove. Servers are usually very attentive. Did ok on this trip but we've had better. Seemed only one server was really paying attention to us. He was great but usually 2-4 servers are checking on us. My main complaint about Stone's Cove is that they don't have French fries or other fried foods like chicken tenders. Love their flatbreads. They have other good foods, but just really want to have the option to have French fries or onion rings or fried mushrooms or fried cheese...you get the drift."

  • "I was very impressed with the place. Wife ordered seafood special (I believe it was the rockfish), I ordered the salmon. Both were delicious, moist, and tender. We ordered fish tacos for appetizer. Ir too were delicious. The pear martini was ok. Stone Cove KitBar won an award for best martini (i am not sure which martini won the award), so my expectations for the drink were high. The smores desert incredible."
