    The food was great. We had a party of 4 and everyone ordered something a little different. The service was above normally and they even made a special request for a cappuccino!! The only hiccup was I used an Open Table Dining Check and no one had seen or used it before. This caused a duplicated charge to my credit card. Other than that, everything was great.

    Stone's Throw Restaurant for Lunch was a nice dining experience that allowed privacy for conversation. Unfortunately since it's open to the meeting space below, it's not always as quiet since noise travels upward.

    I needed to meet with clients during a convention at the hotel and this was the only logical place to do it on a rainy day. I had red bad reviews so expectations were low. I had the grilled tuna salad. The tuna was perfectly cooked (almost rare) and salad was exceptionally good. Others had club and said it was good. Service was good considering that they appeared to be understaffed having a large convention in the hotel.

    In the midst of a busy conference--which is the business of this hotel--it took 10 minutes to get a breakfast table, even with a reservation. It took 45 minutes to get a plate of toast; the pot of coffee for 3 people was tiny; and the waitress never returned with a refill. At ridiculous hotel prices to boot. I'd never go back for breakfast.

    I took my fiancée to this little gem for her first dinner date--and it was markedly amazing. We ordered the Seafood Fettuccine to share, the fried calamari to share, and two Virgin Mary's The fettuccine tasted like it was JUST made--and delicious. The fried calamari was cooked perfectly--not rubbery, which is very hard to do. I advise getting the portions to share--they're HUGE. Like, salad serving bowl huge. The staff were very good about accommodating our requests to have two glasses of water at the table, along with a pitcher of water as soon as they could. I have no idea why the other reviews gave this restaurant a bad rating. This place is fantastic--if a little bit expensive. But for the food--and for a romantic date--it's worth it.

    This restaurant was in a hotel that caters to conferences. This restaurant was incapable of handling the number of people that wanted to eat there. You would thinkk they would have figured out how many people they need to provide service when you have 2 huge conferences being held at the hotel. It took us one and a half hours to have a hamburger!

    Wow! What a disappointing experience. This place is in the fabulous Marriott Wardman park. It's definitely not up to the standards of the rest of the hotel. Couldn't find the hottest stand. Communication was tough as the waiters first language was not English. Food was vey bland. Bugrger was not seasoned at all. Would not recommend.

I had the vegetarian option while my sister had the filet. We each loved our meals, and my sister raved about the mashed potatoes. We enjoyed a sampling of deserts, and my favorite was the crime brûlée. The meal was amazing.

    I was a little disappointed that it was inside a hotel...the reviews did not imply that it was in that type of setting and was not what I was looking for exactly... A reservation was definitely not needed. The restaurant was completely empty except for one other table, which wasn't a bad thing. We had 4 servers to our table alone, but they were courteous and didn't crowd us. Overall, great but pretty expensive meal for two.

    Nestled in the Wardman Marriott as a guest I ate here at the Stone Throw. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the lamb shank which was so good. The meat fell off the bone and I ate every carnivorousness bit and savored the tendernous. So much so I only took one forkful of mash potatoes which we phenomenal.

The service was just OK after that. Seems as though there's not enough wait staff. Not worth paying for parking. If your staying at the hotel it's ok

    If judged solely on the food, the Stones Throw would get 4 or 5 stars. Unfortunately,the service was substandard,to the point that it was extremely noticeable and annoying. To start, the maitre'd was nowhere to be found for 10 minutes. I stood and waited until he finally came out. Then our party was forced to wait an extra 15 minutes, despite the fact that we had 8:00 reservations. I figured it was because they were busy, but when we were finally seated, there was barely a soil in the place. Then we waited for our server to arrive, and he was slow to take our orders, slow to bring our salads, slow to fill out drinks, etc. The food was wonderful.

    First, let me say that nowhere does it mention that this restaurant is in the Marriott hotel-Wardman...so we were confused given the address. It is a classic hotel restaurant with a little bit of snazzy dishes. The service was VERY good except we were not asked what drinks we would be having. For a reservation, our table was not great. The decor is nice and the atmosphere was quiet except for an older lady who hollered out for the waiter.

    The food was very good, especially for a hotel restaurant. We went on a very slow night, so the waiter was very attentive and conversational. The booth seats were comfortable but not set comfortably to the table, so you had to sit on the edge to be close enough to the table to eat. They seemed made more for bigger people - men, athletes. Overall, though, it's a nice place for an occasional splurge or to meet a friend attending a meeting or staying at the Wardman Park.

    They were a bit understaffed and there were a few large groups. We waited for a long time for everything which was fine since we were not in a huge rush, but it was a good 30min before our drink order was taken and at least 45min before we got our food order in. We had steak, which was cooked as expected and served with a side of asparagus. There was nothing overly spectacular about any of the experience except for the price, which was $30/person for starter, steak, and dessert. They even allowed for a substitution on one of the starters, which was quite nice. Parking seems to be valet-only, but there is generally plenty of street parking around the hotel if you do not mind walking.
