    We booked the Stonewood Grill on a suggestion from someone who lives in the area since none of us in the party were from Tampa. It is very difficult finding a place that will seat 8 or more people and provide separate checks. They were very gracious and accommodating. The waiter was very informed about the menu and offered suggestions. The food was some of the best I had while I was in Florida. This is not your run of the mill chain food. Delicious!

    We chose this place to celebrate our 46th anniversary. We had only been here once before with friends. The food servings were large. I usually clean up my plate and then eat part of what my wife orders, but this time we both had to request doggie bags. The pork chop I ordered (16oz) was thick. You might want to order a longer cooking time to get what you want. I requested a medium well and it could have been cooked longer for pork. The service was just outstanding. Our waitress, Kailey, was a gem. She got us everything we needed and interacted with us every chance she had.

    This was a big disappointment. Went for a nice dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Instead we got poor service and improperly prepared food. We informed them at the time of our reservations that it was our anniversary, but they never even acknowledged this on arrival or during our dinner. My wife ordered prime rib WELL done, and after sending it back 3 times, they still couldn't get it right! Are you kidding me! Don't bother with this restaurant!

    7:45 for 8:00 reservation noise level at the bar reduced us to hand signals. Martini ordered a little bit wet and a little bit dirty came with so much olive juice that it was undrinkable...and no olives. Cobwebs under lamp shade close to light at our table...a small thing and easily missed by cleaning crew. The boss's chicken with capers was pretty good but pasta to compliment the sauce would have been better than just spinach. My herb crusted grouper was quite good yet rather small portion...and I'm pretty sure it was grouper. Waiter was efficient and politely exchanged the glass of olive juice for a real martini...with two olives.

    We like the Stonewood Grill at Tampa Palms since it is one of the nicer places to dine in our area. The menu has many items to choose from and my Ribeye and my husband's Mahi Mahi with Crabmeat we ordered on Fri night were both very good. Only negative for us is the poor selection of wines.....no French chardonnays or Italian reds. Servers are always first class and the atmosphere in the dining room is very nice.

    Went to dinner with my brother and his girlfriend. The bread brought to the table was not warm. Service was friendly and fast. I had the chicken florentine. It tasted like country club/cruise ship banquet food. Swimming in a watery sauce. My brother's salmon was a big piece and looked great, but he didn't seem to enjoy it. His girlfriend's steak looked okay, but her side of broccoli looked dry and undercooked. Not going to rush back.

    Great atmosphere, but the steak was not worth the price. I ordered the New York Strip, and was dissappointed. It is possible other items on the menu that were more reasonably priced, may have been worth the price or have been better. But the Strip had very little flavor. It was the highest price on the menu and one would think it would be a great choice. Price and ambiance of J Alexander's, but apple bees taste. Would rather have eaten at Outback. PS the creme brûlée was burnt, which is easy to do and it is difficult to get right. Might have been a fluke, could possible be a hit or miss item
