A word from Twelve Stones Restaurant
Our chef-driven, neighborhood restaurant is a place where the food and drinks are serious, but the atmosphere is not. We encourage you to pull up a pine bench, enjoy a leisurely dinner or relax at the 35-seat bar with friends and neighbors. The rotating New American menu is based on what’s in season, locally sourced and inspiring to the Chef. Cocktails are approached with as much care as the food, with each drink hand-crafted from fresh ingredients. The dining room, designed by award-winning designer, Kuzuu Design is a refined, industrial-farm space with a comfortable, inviting vibe.

    Had dinner here previously-which was great. Lunch was not nearly as good, kind of disappointing after dinner experiences. Waitress at lunch over-explained everything on the menu, describing everything as "fantastic". Fried green tomatoes were very average; the coating was stiff and had no flavor. At dinner, pork chops are very good. House salad was flavorful and fresh. Blueberry crisp w/lemon-buttermilk ice cream was delicious. Wines are really over-priced. Owner/chef was friendly, and seems very talented and interested in providing a great dining experience. Bonus that it's in the neighborhood. Noise level can be very loud at dinner, but quiet at lunch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Our first visit to Twelve Stones was Friday night. I'd heard tons of raves about it. Our reservation ensured that there was a table waiting for us when we arrived. Our server was excellent and very attentive. The food was fabulous, BUT it took FOREVER to receive two medium rare steaks and a couple sides. We clocked the wait from when our orders were taken until the foods' arrival at 40 minutes. Our server was apologetic and told us that when they get busy the kitchen backs up and this happens. The restaurant wasn't even full when we ordered. We would not wait that long again for food to show up here or anywhere else. We would maybe consider going back to eat at a slower time of day, but even that isn't likely.

    My husband and I decided to try something closer to home for our recent date night. It was honestly the best dining experience we've had since the last time we dined at Twelve Stones. The second visit confirmed the first time a few months back wasn't just a fluke. From being greeted to our server to the chef visiting us at our table, it was once again better than any downtown restaurant we could've gone to that night. My husband and I both agree it's officially our new favorite go-to restaurant for date nights and dinner out with friends. You should really try Twelve Stones, too!

    Overall, great experience. Creative menu (which to our understanding changes seasonally). Also offered non-menu specials (a chicken pasta dish and a Steelhead Trout entree). Homemade bread selection was impressive. Excellent Service. Owner/Chef visited our table (as well as all those dining in the restaurant.) A little pricey considering the portion sizes. Plate presentations were beautiful. Our main issue was the distraction of noise. Tables are VERY close together, and half of the dining area was under a "tin lined" ceiling which reverberated the noise. We will definitely dine here again and look forward to the next seasonal menu.

    Discovered this wonderful restaurant about a month ago. Who would expect such a gem sharing a parking lot with Krogers. This is not a quick stop grab a bite and leave. Come with the mindset that you are going to be treated to the freshest of foods with breads and desserts made on the premises. The waitstaff are friendly and work at giving you a relaxing time out of your day. I have only had lunches. But the bar looks to be able to create a hopping place for evening. The menu changes with the seasons. The fried calamari appetizer is fantastic. The formally trained chef/owner has created a restaurant that is casual dress but exceptional in what it offers in food and drink. It is a place you know you are going to have fun in when you enter.

    This was our first time dining at twelve stones. It happened to be my birthday and I came with my husband and my aunt. The calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked, and we all raved how delicious it was. Best we have ever had. The main courses were all amazing.. I had the filet. The chef came and introduced himself to us, he was very personable. Chef Dave. We received a free dessert, and even a birthday card from the restaurant. Everything about our experience was positive and we look forward to more special occasion dinners at twelve stones. Oh, and our waitress was fabulous as well!! Thanks for all of it!!

    I broke my own rule, i.e., never try a new restaurant on a Saturday night. The noise level made it very difficult to carry on a conversation or hear the waitress. This place was packed and the hostess desk was overwhelmed. The service was attentive but slow. The food was quite good and original. The salads were delicious though the Caesar salad was not a typical Caesar which caused some complaining from 2 of the gentlemen in my party. Overall, our experience was good and I will definitely go back on a week day night.

    My wife and I tried this place for a nice anniversary dinner and were both very happy with the experience. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and knowlegable. My wife had the black fin tuna, and I had the thick cut pork chop. We both sampled everything of each other's plate and everything was excellent; the red cabbage on my plate was to die for, with it's smokey flavor. It is definately a special occasion place for us as the prices are moderately high, but well worth it. We will go back.

    Our first visit, but we'll definitely go back. The potato leek soup was excellent. My wife had the scallops, which were prepared perfectly. I had the crab cakes, and I must say they were the best I've had at any restaurant not near a shoreline - very little filler, lots of lump crab meat. We shared the black pepper cheesecake, and it was very, very good. Our server, Tien, was excellent, the ambiance was nice. There was a singer playing contemporary music on an electric piano. Nice, but a little loud for my taste - we were directly across from her, and had to raise our voices slightly to have a private conversation. Entree prices are generally in the upper 20's, but well worth it. Very nice experience. Highly recommended.

    The food was amazing, fresh and flavorful. Snapper special was delicious! We had great service from Devon once we were seated. However, they were a little short staffed so we waited in the bar beforehand for 15 minutes until our reservation time and we were never acknowledged. The atmosphere is comfortable and I really liked the decor. Wine selection was eclectic. The servers were all knowledgeable about the dishes and their ingredients. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion or date night. It's a place where you want to sit and take your time.

    This was our second time at Twelve Stones. The first was a five star experience. The second, mediocre at best. Because the bone in chop was so fabulous on my first visit, I ordered it again. The first time, the chop was perfectly carmelized with perfect grill marks and delicious. The second time the chop was a dull gray with some grill marks and pretty tasteless. I suspect that since our second vist was on a Tuesday (Twelce Stones is closed Sunday and Monday) that the meat was no longer as fresh as it could have been or as my wife described it, "I got Tuesday meat." On a higher note, my wife got the crab cakes which were great. We'll go back, just not on a Tuesday.

    Considering the venue, a bit pricey. The food is fantastic and on par with finer steakhouses. I hope the chef is successful and able to relocate into more suitable surroundings. The venue lends more to cozy than romantic or business related. The service on my visit was painfully slow. With reservations, and arriving 15 mins prior to the reservation time, the wait was more than 20 mins after the time the reservation was set for. There were issues with the server I was told that delayed the check for at least 20 mins. The chef made efforts to visit each table for feedback and personally thank everyone for their patronage. That was a nice personalization I thought . But in all fairness the dishes were well prepared and worthy of acclaim.

    The dinner had its positives and negatives. We had to wait 10 minutes or so for our server to get to our table, but the chef heard of our wait and brought us an appetizer. The server had to be reminded to bring a salad, but the salad was delicious. My guest's asparagus was undercooked. Overall, there are much better New American restaurants out there, but for Flower Mound, it is a nice change of pace from the limited choices. It is comparable in price to what you would expect from restaurants with similar cuisines, but without the pomp and formality.

    ...but please reduce salt usage! We've been twice now, ordering calamari our first trip and fried green tomatoes on this trip. I love salt and even I could tell it was overdone. Even steaks are salty. I love this restaurant, fabulous menu and prohibition cocktails! But my wife will probably only give it one more try before she bails if food remains so salty. I suppose we could ask for reduced salt when ordering, but I suspect the seasoning for the fried apps can't be altered.

    I dined there for dinner around 6:00pm. There were < 10 other diners when I was seated. The tables were close so private conversations would be hard. Wait staff was sufficient. My meal was a mixed green salad with pine nuts, entree of chicken fettuccine with pesto, and chocolate cake for dessert. The cocktail I had was a cucumber jalapeño martini. The salad, dessert, and cocktail were good. The entree was mediocre. There was way too much pesto and oil, and the fettuccine tasted starchy. The waiter could have been more attentive as I had to wait awhile between courses. I don't drink wine but it appeared that other waiters around me were knowledgable and that their selection was varied. I will try it again for lunch to see if it is better.

    Fourth or fifth visit - this time on a busy Friday evening. Great to see it busy, this place needs to succeed and stay around for a long time. Usual amazing and innovative cocktails from Scott at the bar, with explanations for WHY they are built and layered as they are. Fun, quirky service from our server - and everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. I had the crab cakes, which were great - not humdrum breadcrumb patties at all, but full of sweet tender crab. Their bread pudding and maple ice cream is to die for! Great place for a romantic dinner or to meet up with foodie friends. Bring people from Dallas and show them we have an awesome chef-driven restaurant in the NW suburbs!!

    After hearing about 12 Stones, I thought I would check it out for myself. What I found was that, while the staff and Owner were friendly, the staff was slow, forgetful and frustrating. The food was good, not great (and the portions small) much like many "High End" restaurants, but the service was un-believably bad. My expectations would be that if you are going to pay $150 for 2 people to order a Salmon dish (and have 2 glasses of house wine each) that the service would be outstanding and that the servers would be on the ball....this was not the case. Given the "value to benefit ratio" that I experienced, I will not be returning unless I am certain that things have changed.
