Diner Reviews
  • "We were greeted warmly and promptly seated at a booth of our choosing. Joshua was friendly and knowledgeable, and provided outstanding service. Our food was delicious; great value for the money paid. And as a bonus, they now have a rewards card!"

  • "The dinner atmosphere and service was excellent. The prime rib was unfortunately tough. The shrimp and scallops were very good but the broccoli side was barely cooked with very little taste. We have been there for lunch and the hamburger was delicious."

  • "Stonewood on University Pkwy is a consistently excellent stop for quality food, decent wine, and superior service. It gets a bit crowded during the "snow bird" season so it could make use of a slightly bigger customer waiting area (though the bar is large, populated by plenty of TV's tuned to sports, and noisy). The menu is not extensive but always good and the 15-year specials are worth a try."

  • "We showed up over an hour early for our reservation, so we had no trouble being seated at the table of our choice. Our server was excellent, the food was delicious, the price was right, and we were pleased to see that Stonewood is finally establishing a Rewards/Loyalty Program, which we signed up for on the spot. Stonewood remains one of our go-to restaurants."

  • "My husband and I are seniors and our appetites are not as grand as they once were. Stonewood offers generous portions that we may share a delicious meal, in a delightful atmosphere, with ever accommodating servers. Stonewood's dinner options are always unique, well-planned and balanced. I appreciate my "date night" even more whenever we're at Stonewood: conveniently located, easily-made reservations, and dining rewards."

  • " Blue chips and steak were good. Service, setting, dessert, drinks, other meal item ordered ...none really added anything to the meal. Overall for us we won't be returning unless its to get some blue chips."

  • "In this case " the usual " is a very good thing. We forget what a nice place it is and whenever we go we wonder why we don't go more often."

  • "Stonewood is consistently good. Consistently hot food. Nice wine list. Their happy hour pricing went up this last year on the wines. It was half price during happy hour. It's still a good value though."

  • "Best filet mignon in town. Food and service are consistently good and friendly. Birthdays are made special with a terrific dessert. The University Park Stonewood Grill is my favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We were so sad when the Bradenton Stonewood closed. Thank goodness the University Parkway branch is still open. Great food, great service, good wine selection; we always feel welcomed when we arrive, and very satisfied when we leave."

  • "Always our favorite steakhouse, we may have to reconsider. We generally go at least once a week but due to summer vacation, we've hadn't been in about a month. To our surprise, the menu has changed! Gone is the larger Filet (the 9oz) leaving only the smaller 6oz available. And much to my dismay, the 6oz WAS NOT what I expected from Stonewood. It appeared to be a butterflied filet - a no-no in higher-end steak houses. My filet was about a half inch thick, more the size of a sirloin that you'd find from a place like Applebees, etc. Additionally, my baked potato was raw and hard. I have always held Stonewood to higher level, just below Council Oaks. So I am VERY disappointed in the quality of food during our last visit."

  • "We ate off of the specials menu (several dishes for $15) The dinner was delicious for a great price. Service was great too."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a pleasant dining experience on a Friday evening. We arrived before "Happy Hour" ended, so drink and wine (by the glass or bottle) were very reasonable. Our server was most pleasant and competent. Our disappointment were our entrees. We selected chicken dishes off the special summer menu. The chicken breasts on both plates were tough - either old or over-cooked. Neither of us finished the entree. Accompanying items and sauces were fine."

  • "We booked a table here for a 4th July family get together and were surprised to get a table so easily. From the moment we entered the restaurant all of the staff were friendly and attentive and really went out of their way to ensure that we were looked after. The food was delicious and the pace of service just right to ensure that we enjoyed the meal. This place will be firmly on our list to revisit frequently."

  • "always good food here and service was ok just forgot to bring our friends ( a client) drinks 4 times.... and our drinks although only club soda were missed refills many times.... it was too often that it was comical....chalked up to waiter was having a bad night.....otherwise good consistent food."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was great, we had a perfect window table, and the noise level very quiet and conducive to having nice conversation. Service was helpful, quick and very pleasant. We will definitely be returning. Ability to make reservation on line, a real help. The only part I had trouble with was being able to reserve a table on that system, as I somehow got into a "loop." Otherwise, the experience was perfect for what our little group of 4 needed. Thank you."

  • "The food was very good but the drink prices are on the high side."

  • "We were seated at a nice booth in the bar area, which was fine with us. A waitress immediately took our drink order, and Saudi that our waiter would be with us momentarily, which he was. Devon was personable and efficient, got us our hot pretzel rolls with extra salt, and generally made our dining experience a pleasurable one. I had one of the $15 chicken dishes, and it was both delicious and filling. We'll be back soon!"

  • "My Wife and I went to the Stonewood Grill & Tavern in North Sarasota to celebrate her birthday. A number of surrounding tables and booths were filled and served before our waiter first visited us. I don't blame the waitstaff as much as the management. It appeared our waiter had tables all over the restaurant instead of in a section. We ordered entrees off the special $15 menu. I guess you get what you pay for. My chicken Florentine was bland, under cooked, sat in what appeared to be a cup of watery fluid and was accompanied with a glob of spinach mess. My wife's chicken with mushrooms was also tasteless and served with rice, although the menu specified potatoes. The waiter told us almost 80% of the Chicken Florentine dinners were returned."

The service is good, always friendly and ready to take care of our every need. Food continues to be very good and always hot. We think of Stonewood as one of our favorite places to go eat."

  • "This was our first visit to this restaurant since moving to the area in January 2014. The food and service were great. We will definitely be back! Note: Be sure to get reservations. Even at 6 pm during off-season it was full. Luckily, I thought to make a reservation earlier that day."

  • "The food is good and it is consistent. Nothing special and a tad over priced for a chain restaurant"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food and drinks were excellent, definitely up to their normal standards. But, little things detracted from our overall enjoyment. I specifically asked for my blue cheese olives on the side (I don't like the vodka taste influenced by the olives); our waiter brought the drink with the olives in the drink. We asked for pretzel rolls with lots of salt; they came out room temperature (they're usually very hot!) and almost devoid of salt. Lastly, a manager stood at the booth behind us for more than 15 minutes, talking to a couple of customers. It got quite annoying after awhile; it was like having a loud diner behind you because he was standing above the level of the booth. We finally asked him to stop, which he quickly did. Little things."

  • "We were immediately seated at the table of our choice. Rusty, our waiter, was extremely congenial and very efficient. Both of our meals were delicious, and our cocktails excellent. At our request, Rusty brought us all pretzel rolls; they are really good! I had the wasabi encrusted salmon -- succulent! This location is just about our favorite restaurant."

  • "What a perfect evening dinner. Our table was ready right when we arrived and the wait staff immediately took a drink order. Our waiter made a wonderful wine recommendation for one of our friends which she was very happy with....dinner was amazing! There were four of us and we each ordered totally different entrees: Mediterranean Salad topped with salmon; Herb Encrusted Grouper; Boneless Short Ribs; Tuscan Chicken. I ordered the chicken and substituted the rice for cream spinach at the waiters recommendation...such a wonderful combination. We all were very happy with our meals. Excellent food, drinks and service made this a PERFECT evening. "
