    From the moment we pulled into the parking lot, we were treated like royalty. Everyone made us feel very important and our happiness was most important to the entire staff. The ambiance was perfect for conversing at our table. The food was so fabulous, it exceeded all expectation. This was a thoroughly enjoyable evening that we will not soon forget.

    Food great, ambience fit for a steakhouse, food was very good. Everything good but the service. Had a group of 8 and they assigned a server who admitted after dinner that he had been there less than a week. Bad management decision. After very poor service 18% gratuity was still automatcally added to check with no apologies to guests for dismal service.

  • Legendart filet not so legendary
    disappointing
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I asked for 10z filet medium rare it came out medium well no red in the steak at all, then it took over 15-20 minutes to get another steak to me and by then my girlfriend had already finished her meal. They did remove the steak from the bill but it practically ruined the over 150 dollar meal. We have eaten at Stoney River over 5 times and this is the first example of bad service and bad steak.

    We celebrated my husband's birthday this year at Stoney River. We had heard how good it was but are frequent visitors to another locally owned steakhouse and just couldn't imagine Stoney River's steaks were any better. Boy were we wrong! My husband had a ribeye and I had a filet and both our steaks were cooked to absolute perfection. We barely needed our steak knives! The salads we ordered to go with our meal were well worth the extra price; they were HUGE! We were seated rather fast as I had made reservations. As soon as we were at our table our waitress greeted us very kindly and wished my husband a happy birthday. After we were finished with our meal, she brought out a slice of chocolate cake (or brownie, I'm not sure which... But it was yummy!) and two glasses of champagne for us to toast his birthday. Very nice and classy touch! We very much enjoyed our first trip to Stoney River and are for certain it will not be our last!

    This was our 3rd visit in 5 weeks. The food was plentiful, cooked to perfection, and the presentation was outstanding. The service was very substandard, considering the quality and cost of the restaurant, on this visit. The service was outstanding the previous 2 visits. Our tea glasses were often empty, out appetizer dishes were not removed, we had to ask for steak knives, and we had to remind the waiter we wanted dessert.

    We went for our anniversary dinner and it was a very good experience. We were seated on time, and the hostess and waiter wished us a happy anniversary. The noise level was moderate to energetic, but we didnt have any trouble hearing ourselves speak. The food was great. We ordered the crab cake as a starter and it arrived very very quickly. It actually arrived before our server even took our entree orders and before the arrival of our bottle of wine. If anything, I would have preferred that entree order to be taken sooner. Not a huge issue. We then had the tuna salad and the coffee infused steak, and both were delicious. Steak was cooked perfectly to my liking (medium-rare) and the tuna was prepared as it should as well.

    The food was good, cocktails and wine list intriguing, the service slllloooooow. We ate only an appetizer of chips and our entrees, which were medium-rare steaks (i.e., not a lot of cooking time). We allowed 2 whole hours to eat and 15 to drive a mile to a concert afterward, honestly thinking we'd have an hour to kill between dinner and the show. Nope - we barely made it before the show started. We waited about 20 min for water and cocktails, even longer for the check. It was my boyfriend's birthday, and we didn't have time to order dessert, even! The place really wasn't that busy at 6 pm. I'm not sure what was going on, there. I might come back -- again, the food was good and the pricing appropriate -- but not if I'm in a hurry!

    We took my husband for his birthday and the atmosphere and service were both impeccable as always at this restaurant. The food this time was "off" in our opinion. There were four of us and we each ordered a steak. Three of the steaks were severely overlooked and one was super gristly. We've never been disappointed with Stoney River until now. For the price, you expect that your food is going to be flawless every time but this meal left a lot to be desired. Hopefully the cook just had an off night.....needless to say, for the price, we aren't going to chance it again.

We never have been embarrassed when we take our friends there and soon it too becomes one of their favorites Try the coffee encrusted steak, one of my favorites

    Having dined in London, Europe, Singapore and the rest, I cannot get excited about eating at any of the many restaurants around this town. Have given up relying on TripAdvisor, Yelp, Urbanspoon reviews which have proved unreliable. This place , however, has great quality food, atmosphere and service. Highly recommended.

    The ambiance and service were worthy of a very nice steakhouse. Unfortunately, the food didn't deliver I'm my opinion. I ordered the steak medallions and the lobster tempura. The steak was tender but nothing special. The horseradish topping was overpowering rather than complimentary. And the lobster... well, it was just a mistake. Save the tempura for a Japanese restaurant. The others at my table seemed to enjoy their meals, but I thought it was a lot of money for mediocre steak and a baked potato.

    Nothing super special about this steakhouse, but the prices were very reasonable for the meal and good quality. Bread served is amazing. I had the 14 oz ribeye, which was tasty. Nothing super exceptional, but for $31, it was a great meal. The wine list was good, too. Had a delightful bottle of Mondavi -- overall, recommend it.

    I visited on a Sunday afternoon around 3:45. I was seated in the bar area (even though my reservation states that my preference is for a quiet side table), brought water and my iced tea and then completely ignored. After waiting for 15 minutes, I got up and walked out. I don't care if a shift change is going on, someone should be making certain all the tables seated are being attended to. In order to post this review, I had to enter all the ratings for each category. Since I couldn't even dine, I honestly can't rank their food. However, because I couldn't get food, I'm ranking it poor to complete the review.

    This was our first visit to this restaurant. There were 8 of us, from age 4 - 75. Our waitress was very attentive. Everyone enjoyed their food. My husband sent his steak back the first time because he wanted it medium, not medium well. The chef came out to speak with him to make sure everything turned out fine. I recommend this restaurant highly and would love to return when I am back in TN. They made our special occasion very special!

    We recently visited Nashville for the first time to visit our son who attends college there. We wanted to take him out for a nice dinner and found Stony River online listed as one of the top restaurants in Nashville. We were greeted by the complimentary valet and friendly staff. We found all staff to be friendly and were attentive to our needs. Our server Regan was able to answer all questions and was attentive but not hovering. The food was amazing the only down side was that we had to leave some of it behind as we were staying in a hotel and had no where to store leftovers. We will definitely return if we come back to Nashville in the future!

    From start to finish everything was wonderful. Food was unbelievable. Service could not have been better. There were a few hiccups in the service (soup I ordered was forgotten and they brought my wife the wrong food). These things were fixed so quickly that to us it was even an issue.

    Our experience at Stony River was disappointing to say the least. Every restaurant can have an off night but this this visit was just error filled. I made reservations for 5 on Open Table and I added this was a 16th birthday party celebration. When the hostess was taking us to our table she walked us into the very loud bar area and she noticed that the table hadn't been cleaned yet. And..it was in the corner of the bar under one of the tvs. She asked if we minded sitting in the bar (much less at a dirty table) and I the table couldn't have been a louder area. Adding to the fact we were celebrating a teenager's birthday party which I had advised them about on Open Table, I was shocked this was the first option.

    Great restaurant, great service. Only down fall was that they have spotlights in the dining area that aren't correctly placed and can be blinding while dining. The position of the lights do indeed need to be reconsidered to make the experience amazing. Minus that, the food was terrific and our waiter was amazing.

    Steaks good and wedge salad excellent. Whiskey shrimp appetizer is a gem. Not up to flemings quality but also somewhat cheaper. Service spotty.. Server at our table every two min trying to get us to order but then once we did we barely saw him. took forever to get his attention to get the bill as he had ten minute conversation with neighboring table and then never looked around at his other tables before leaving room. Request for quieter table was honored. thanks very much. Good solid place for good steak .

    Overall, the food, service and setting were great. The wait staff was attentive and nice. The only service complaint is that our steaks arrived shortly after we were served our starters, so they were placed on the side to get cold while we enjoyed appetizers. But the food was very good for everyone at the table.
