Cobblestones of Lowell Ratings and Reviews
We went in Saturday afternoon for lunch. There were 2 other tables in the restaurant. We had server that was being trained. The waiter who was supposed to be training her did not accompany her back after the initial drink order.
My husband's burger was missing the guacamole, there was no ketchup with the fries, and my Shirley temple was almost all grenadine- all things that were easy to fix and our server did. All things the trainer should have spotted. The time waiting for our meals seemed a bit long for being pretty much dead.
The clam chowder was very good but very expensive for the bowl. The food was pretty good, but way overpriced. Burgers are about $15 and it was pretty much your standard burger. My Cuban seemed to be a bit lopsided- meats and mustard not proportional. And again I think $14.
The building is very nice on the inside- some old world charm to it.
I did remark that it was our anniversary when we made the reservation and there was no mention of it- found that odd since it asked are you joining for a special occasion.
And the oddest part, on their menu the specifically ask to not post any negative reviews on sites- who does that? I makes me think that they've had a few in the past, but want to keep their rating up.
We like trying non chain restaurants and supporting local businesses, but we won't be back to this one.
I definitely recommend Cobblestone in Lowell. They accomodated our need to change our reservation the day before Mother's Day. It is located in a historic building that is a little tricky to find but once we located it , it was worth the drive from Andover. The decor is beautiful, simple and elegant without being over the top fussy. The food is superb: well prepared, portions are large. Service was quick and attentive. The pricing is very reasonable. We celebrated Mother's Day and were not disappointed!
We joined for an early Sunday brunch with friends. The dining room is quite lovely and full of light and the seating is quite comfortable. There was one large party (14+) with young children celebrating a family event. We were seated next to this large party so at times had to shout to be heard. The other tables around us had parties of 4 or more, so, the room got louder and louder still when the music started.
The menu was promising with several creative offerings. Our drinks took a while to prepare (two were non-alcoholic specialties, one was a mimosa) although our server apologized profusely and was very professional.
The entree portions were generous, the ingredients fresh and there is obviously a chef in the kitchen giving some thought to the combinations which are creative. One diner got the short rib hash which he enjoyed but it was more chunks of potatoes and beef than hash; another got the goat cheese strata with arugula and said the flavors were good but it was a little dry and the last got the southwestern eggs with ham. The ham was a thin slice that had been grilled so dry it wouldn't even cut with a knife but the eggs and potatoes were tasty. Our food also took a while to arrive and when it did, every entree was lukewarm. We didn't send them back because we had been there 45+ minutes by the time we got the entrees and really just wanted to eat.
Overall, Cobblestones has potential to be more than we experienced, both in food and atmosphere. We'll give it another try!
The food was excellent. The service was slow. We had to ask for someone to wait on us after being there for 15 minutes and it seemed that our waitress only had a couple of dining room tables, so I don't know if she was busy in the bar. The ambiance is great and we were with friends so the waits weren't a huge deal, but it was definitely longer than normal.
Great historic building. Beautiful inside and out. Food was really good. Risotto on the salmon was cooked correctly with depth in flavor. The house bread reminded me of my grandmother's fresh baked dinner rolls . I liked the way the server ensured us we could take home a bottle of wine if we didn't finish it. Great way to up-sell .
Very disappointing. Thought last time the service was just a fluke. Again last night we had bad service. Prime rib was very tough. Did not enjoy it at all. We had to ask for things 3 or 4 times before we got it. The whole system seemed to be scrambling. Won't visit again.
Had brunch on Sunday and it was awful. I'll prob never go back for brunch. My chicken and waffles was just not good. The waffle was dry, chalky in taste, and the 3 small pieces of chicken were hard, and resembled the kind of chicken you'd buy frozen in a grocery store. Cold cup of coffee, but waiter was nice to bring me another fresh hot cup. I had to ask for more syrup, I suppose I'm just accustom to getting a little syrup on the side. My bloody bacon Maria was great and my husbands special brunch cocktail was good, the orange flavored mimosa. His breakfast though wasn't the greatest. We didn't once get mad at the waiter we know he didn't cook the food. But honestly........ his poached eggs on top of the corned beef hash special was hard boiled. Like is the chef that dumb to not know that we were going to see it wasn't poached????? The waiter was very kind and got us 2 poached eggs, which was nice and said he'll send the manager over to our table, that's never happened. Only other thing that bothered me was the room they put us in was nice but dirty including the waiters hands and nails It was such a turn off to see someone serving you food with dirty nails.
I had a great experience at Cobblestones. My date and I both greatly enjoyed our meals. I had the pan seared scallops and she had their StoneBurger. We both left very satisfied. The drinks were very well made; I enjoyed a few Old Fashioneds which are my favorite. Apart from the food te restaurant has very classy decor and the service was excellent. I would recommend this location for date night or any other kind of gathering.
We definitely got a good bargain for the service and food provided. The homemade butter and bread was outstanding, as well as the chocolate ganache. The house special burger (the "Stonesburger") was a bit dry and flavorless, but not too expensive so not a total loss. We overall were a bit disappointed, as online it says on Fridays that the "Late Night Menu" is 50% and beings at 9:30pm. When we arrived at 9:30pm, we were told that it actually does not start until 10pm and it is only for appetizers (not specified online). The service was fabulous, and if you go, just splurge for the actual dinner options (like steak, chicken, or pasta). It was a pretty good experience
The food was tasty, the service was great . . . Cobblestones has been one of my go-to places since I moved to Lowell in 1997. Easy walking distance to the theater or Boarding House Park concerts or the Arena and free parking after 5 . . . what more can you ask for?
Was hoping to find another local restaurant but this was a disappointment. Maybe they were short handed but there was no one to greet customers. Surly attitude by a waiter who we stopped and asked where we should wait because the location of the restaurant was not obvious nor where the hostess stands. Eventually, shown to a very nice table for two by the window. Server came, asked for drinks, poured water, gave specials. We opted for the appetizer special and short ribs (was allowed to substitute vegetable for mashed potatoes which was very nice). Appetizer had scallops and shrimp in a phyllo tart shell with a light cream sauce and mushrooms. Flavor of sauce was nice but the scallops were so overcooked they were almost inedible. Used knife and fork for appetizer and no new silverware was offered for the entree until requested. Then another table was served before I was brought fork and knife. Entree was huge with two large pieces of short ribs, mashed potatoes (I had brussel sprouts), spinach. Short ribs were good and brussel sprouts were nicely pan seared.
I was pretty disappointed in my meal order (Heuvos Rancheros). It was basically a plate of nachos (not great tasting ones) with two fried eggs on top. I will say that the waitress was very apologetic and said that they might take that choice off the menu because a lot of people complain. So instead I ordered an egg skillet which was fine, but when I asked for toast they said they don't have it. Just an odd breakfast experience and I won't be going back anytime soon.
This was our first time at Cobblestone's, but it will not be our last. Everyone loved their meals, except the two who got the veggie burgers, saying they would not order them again. We got the Stone's Pie for dessert and it was so yummy and decadent that the others were wishing they had gotten it. Thank you for a great place to meet with friends.
I had a great experience here with co-workers to celebrate the holidays. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. I ordered the pork shank for $22 and the pork serving was so generous, I got two more meals out of the meat. Overall, I highly recommend this restaurant. Two minor points: I thought the music play list was very strange for the holidays. I don't expect Christmas carols, but the choices of Dire Straights and some 80s dance songs were very odd. More dinner type music would be ideal. Also, we were given white bread slices at first, which were OK. Later, though, they gave us rolls, which were delicious. If they bring you bread, ask if you can have the rolls instead.
Well, it's hard to describe why I want to do is to leave 5 stars for the whole experience. We all had a good time. The food was well cooked and simple. The wait staff was professional, cheerful and polite. Nothing was forgotten. Everything was prompt. They were non-intrusive. The room is clean and cheerful. It would be even without the Christmas decorations. I guess we just had an overall good experience.
