Diner Reviews
  • "Great experience with the food and service. Everything came out when it was supposed to."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This occasion was for a birthday party (table of 9). My prime rib was outstanding; extremely tender and cooked to perfection. My wife ordered her salmon medium rare and it came out medium well. This has happened before but she said it was still very good. I think they have the best Caesar salad in town. If you like martini's, try the Kettle1 with the blue cheese stuffed olives. Outstanding! IMHO it's the best restaurant in the Lakewood Ranch area for the price of the meal."

  • "Friendly and fun service, quick tabling of food after order placed, good wine list (had my favorite red wine, Meiomi), price/value could be a bit better but not a show-stopper. I'd come again and often and bring friends and family."

  • "prime rib and vegetables were of excellent quality and cooked perfectly"

  • "Thought our waitress went home but she was missing for awhile! Didn't bring basket of rolls..another server brought out our dinner order before we were ready"

  • "Ask before you seat couples in the side room where you have the large family parties with kids. We went out for a quiet romantic dinner and were seated in the side room with noisy bouncy kids. Could have stayed home if I wanted to eat with kids. They were not seated in the main dining area so it was quiet out there. Our burchetea was awesome. The Tuscan Chicken delicious - husbands steak was perect. Wish your wine list had a local option."

  • "With the help of Opentable we were whisked to our dining table immediately upon arrival. Service was prompt and food was very good. Was here a year ago and would return if again in the area."

  • "i really like stonewood. the food is terrific and the service is wonderful."

  • "Love Stonewood and have been dining there for almost four years but our latest visit was disappointing. It seems management is trying to rush the meal to accommodate more diners. We hardly received our drinks when the salads were served and had barely started those when the entrees arrived. To add to the insult, the waiter said, no problem and in restaurant language indicated that the meals would be served to others and we would get fresh entrees when the salads were eaten. Guess what? We got the same exact meals back ten minutes later. Not sure what's going on with this restaurant but will hesitate before choosing to go there again"

  • "To begin with, I asked for a quiet corner since one of our party has hearing problems.... we were seated at a table that truly was out of the noise pattern - so appreciated. Our server, Cody, was very helpful in making selections and taking care of all our needs and wants without hovering. Our meal was excellent - 2 people had the filet (cooked differently and it was!) 2 had the oak grilled grouper - so delicious. It was a delightful evening."

  • "I enjoy some dishes here. It's too big to feel really intimate."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "I have been here on several occasions and the food and service is always great. When out of towns guests come to visit this is place is always on the short list for going out to eat. Kelly the bartender was awesome!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Stonewood Grill is always consistent with tasty, properly prepared entrees at moderate prices (I'm from LA, they seem moderate to me). The service is attentive and cheerful. It does get a bit noisy when crowded- I don't have a hearing problem, and I have trouble hearing what the person who is next to the person I'm seated next to, is saying. We're often in a group of 8 or more, if you're 4 or 5, it's fine. Delicious bread!"
    Dined on 11/19/2013
  • "Great to be able to make a reservation... used twice recently. Food always good, prices fair. Will return."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We aways have had a great experience and great food at this restaurant. And good service as well. And we like that we can book a table in advance. Thank you."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We dined here only bc we had a gift card. That said, I would not return here given the prices. It was food just like you'd get at Bonefish or Carrabba's but for $8-10 more per plate. Not terribly impressed."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "As usual, the Stonewood Grill had good food and service. Making a reservation was a good idea since it was crowded. This is one of the best upscale dining choices in north Sarasota."

  • "Don't tell me my nickname is too short. If you want feedback, be nice, not arrogant and dictatorial"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I ordered an New York Strip medium well, but I got an Steak with the outside a little burnt, that was not the issue but the taste of the outside burnt was nasty like the grill was not cleaned before the steak was done. I didn't said nothing because my sons were buying the dinner for my birthday and I didn't want to ruined the night. I went to your restaurant because always had a very good meal, but now I don't think I'll be back o recommend it to anyone."

  • "We eat at Stonewood Grill in Orlando often. We met friends in Sarasota for lunch and suggested Stonewood Grill and it was excellent just as we expected. Our friends were from Canada and they really enjoyed the food and ambience."

  • "We like Stonewood a lot. Good selections on the menu, comfortable and inviting atmosphere, friendly staff. and good food. Prices were a bit high for lunch but we'd go back."

    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Seated promptly with reservation with party of four. Pleasant atmosphere, quick efficient service and reasonable prices for traditional dinning. The black grouper entrée was very good. Everyone in our party was satisfied with their meals. I would recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We had 2 people with walkers with us and the servers took care of the walkers- opened doors- and were very pleasant. The food was good and the bread was delicious."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We went here because of the waits elsewhere and with open table app we go a reservation for 15 min away. We arrived early bust were seated on time. Service was quick and efficient. Food wasn't special but as expected and reasonably priced, no surprises."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We wanted a good steak and were going to go to Ruth's Chris. A friend recommended Stonewoods so we went. The steaks (6 oz filet) were superb - tender, cooked just right, tasty. The baked potatoe and steamed asparagus were also excellent. And the salads were very fresh. the latter is very important to us. We won't go back to some restaurants because the salads contain rusted and black slimy pieces. The waiter was very good. Gave excellent explanations and prompt service. We felt that we got better value for the money here than we do at Ruth's Chris. The price of the entre includes 2 sides and you can add a side salad for a reasonable price. The wine we selected was also very good and reasonably priced. we'll be back."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "The staff is very well trained. It can be very crowded and even if you have a reservation you may have to wait, but the atmosphere with very nice lighting and mostly booths make for a very pleasant dining experience."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "In a few words, the place was OVER packed which I usually a god thing, however, the staff looked over worked and were obviously not able to accommodate the customer volume. The food was in a word, horrible. A frozen meal at best. WAY over priced. Service was tolerable. Even the table (outside) was ridiculously wobbly. I've been to Stonewood several times and not been disappointed however, the current management have drooped the ball in preparing for the onslaught of seasonal visitors. Simply, paid too much for a lousy meal with adequate service. I've been kicking myself for a couple of days now. Never again."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "food was good. The only thing that was missed was that our waiter did not come back and ask about refills for our drinks."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "It was an awesome experience. Our friends all raved about the great food. We all enjoyed the price fixe menu!"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "We went to Stonewood for their new Early Bird menu, and we had a delightful dining experience. Their Early Bird menu has a lot of great items on it, and the portions we received looked like standard sized portions to us. My wife said her prime rib was excellent, and my Wasabi encrusted salmon was outstanding. We also got their pretzel rolls, which were delicious. Karissa, our server, was a real delight. She was friendly, efficient, and informative, always there when we needed something, a real credit to Stonewood! Overall, it was an outstanding dining experience, one that we will repeat soon."

  • "I took May aunt to dinner. The food was good and the service was excellent. A good selection and for a chain group I have eaten at several. The salmon is good."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We had a 5:30 reservation with folks we hadn't seen in a while. We ordered drinks, but it was obvious that we would need time to get to the menu. Server kept coming back again and again. Then before we were even done with our meal, he was asking if we wanted dessert. The check came next and we just felt rushed to open up the table. Diminished the fact that the food was great."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Good food overall, but salads must be prepared in advance and are served directly from the refrigerator, so they are toooo cold."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I had a very nice grouper and others in our group ordered the salmon on cedar and the sea bass. Everyone enjoyed it and next time I'll be ordering the sea bass."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Very nice dinner. Wine appeared to be a very short pour. I was told that you have gone from a 10 ounce glass to a 14 ounce glass so the wine can breath more. Nice idea but the result is looking like I got 1/4 of a glass of wine."

  • "Neighborhood gem with consistent good food and service."
