Cobblestones of Lowell Ratings and Reviews
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.
We had a 5:30 reservation , seated around 5:50 . Waited another 10 minutes for menus... no water ... finally flagged down a bus boy for water . Ordered and food took forever to come out . I ordered the chop salad with salmon . The dressing that I got was wrong but the waitress never came back to check on us . Finally flagged her down for the bill , she asked me how my salad was and that she brought the dressing she liked to have with it ... really ! Horrible service
Service was very good and the clam chowder the BEST I have ever had. Prime rib was okay, sauteed mushrooms and mashed potatoes were very bland and could have used more creativity.
The atmosphere was excellent and our server , Ashley I believe, was very courteous and did a great job.
Went to Cobblestones for Sunday brunch. I have been to their sister restaurant, Moonstones for brunch many times and have always enjoyed it so I thought I'd give cobblestones a shot! I loved it. The food and drinks were excellent and the live music was perfect for the setting. Such a nice ambiance!
The food was sub par, especially for the price. We ordered the nachos which were okay. We ordered the scallops entree and most of he scallops were overcooked. The portobello burger did not have any flavor or texture and was quite insipid. The creme brûlée was serviced in an extremely shallow dish - with a thin layer of custard, which was overpowered by the brûléed sugar. We had to scrape off the sugar to eat the custard otherwise all you could taste was the sugar. Never going back.
I truly Loved the location. Looked very historical, authentic and romantic. I took my Boyfriend to dinner for his birthday and we got a window table for two with candle light. the decor was very elegant in a southern style. Even the furniture was not commercial.
The food was delicious. For entree, we had fried calamari; It was not greasy nor too salty.
For dinner, I had the special Spinach and steak with rice. Was not a big fan of the rice, but everything else tasted so good. My boyfriend had the scallop and mash potato. On the first bite, I wanted to take his plate.
I would highly recommend that place for a romantic night out or a place to catch up with friends without the noisy bar scene covering voices.
The food was B. The waiter was new but tried very hard. We arrived relatively early ,had to ask for silverware and later for salt and pepper. He used many adjectives and very chippie but I am sure he will learn to be a little more relaxed rather than working from the good service handbook 101.
The staff, selection, ambiance, and service were perfect for a night out with the wife. If you are looking for high energy, look somewhere else (Lowell Brewery?). If you want a place were you can sit, relax and chat in a classically decorated dining room with a nice glass of riesling while enjoying reasonably priced, large portioned dishes then this is the place. The staff were attentive yet not overly so. Although there was a preparation snafu, which was more than made up for, the food was worthy of note. Maybe a wee salty (fish), though. The sweet was also a wee sweet. The wine was good as were the cocktails. While outside of our normal dinning price range, the prices were inline with other similarly billed establishments. For the "special", albeit infrequent, night out, this worked very well for us.
We have dined at cobblestones before. A friend gave us a gift certificate which we used for our recent visit. Our waiter - Nick - was great. He described the specials, offered us some bread, answered our questions about menu items, took our order, served us, and stopped by to see if we were all set.
The food was delicious and creative in the presentation.
We will be back!
Have been to Cobblestones many times -- the Bar and Dining room are always lending to a favorable experience. This last time, the dining menu let us down - there were not the standard offerings and selections were limited. Quality of the food was still outstanding.
We hadn't been to Cobblestones in some time, but decided to try again. The menu now offers good options, and the food is well prepared. There are some dishes with flare and creative touches, which is an improvement over the old menu. The wines and beers on tap are great! The staff is very well informed and properly attentive. We'll return.
The only disappointment was that the online menu is apparently obsolete, as we didn't find what we were planning on having once we were there. However, the items that we selected were excellent. The scallops were perfect and well-complemented with sauteed mushrooms, and the sirloin steak was cooked perfectly and very tasty. The service was attentive, but not overbearing, so Cobblestones made for a relaxing dinner for two.
The food was not very good. My husband had to send his Texas Tips back. They were not sirloin (shame on us for not asking) and were very chewy and overcooked. We both ended up with fish and chips and the batter was so thick it was not cooked fully. The waitress was new and a bit spacey (brought me someone else's beer) but very empathetic to our issues and very sweet to our daughter who was upset because we could not substitute the fries for pasta in the chicken finger meal. The lady walking around (manager?) wasn't as empathetic and made it sound like taking the steak off the bill (but still charging us for the fish amd chips replacement) was a gift.
Been there a few times always had been good. Said going through a men change so... half the things on menu not available. What was was awful. We were rushed and no one was there. Tried to order dessert and were told they had no ice cream left for any of the desserts. Who runs out of ice cream. They could have gone to a store and had vanilla ice cream. Stay away, 100 dollars for lousy chicken wings, an over cooked burger, and an under cooked piece of fish. Go anywhere but here
I ate their Sunday night with 2 friends and for the most part everything was excellent. My salmon with lentils was cooked to perfection and my companions had the scallop dish which they loved. For the most part the service was excellent but I thought it would have been nice to have dishes and scraps cleared before the next part of the meal arrives. I also thought our dessert was overpriced for what we got. My girlfriend and I ordered the bananas foster and for me it was just o.k. and didn't look like what I've had before in other places. It basically looked like a banana sundae and the sauce was on the bottom and hard to get to. I was surprised by the inferiority of the dessert based on everything else we had there.
We were seated 1/2 hour after our reservation. Once we were seated, the waiter was very accommodating but service was still slow. Our food arrived about 45 min after we ordered it. I got the feeling that something was going on behind the scenes in the kitchen or with scheduling. I would go back because the food and drinks were delicious, but my husband was really disappointed-especially since it was Father's Day.
service was poor (waiter did apologize and did give us free desserts). Ordered wine, waited a very long time for it. Waited for waiter to bring a steak knife for my meal but he never did. It was 7:30 on a Saturday night (we had reservations) and they were out of several things. Meal came while we were still eating our appetizers. I would not recommend this restaurant nor do I think I would try it again.
So we were looking for a place to go out for our son's birthday dinner. Something that felt special enough for a family celebration but not too fancy with small portions of fancy food. Cobblestones hit the mark perfectly! The atmosphere is warm and traditional with big windows, lots of historical charm and yet there's something kind of contemporary too.
Our server was very friendly and attentive. I had the fish and chips....delicious! As was everyone else's meals. I would highly recommend Cobblestones and am already planning my next visit!
This was my third visit to Cobblestones. I want to love Cobblestones. Truly. But unfortunately, the food falls flat. The service, location, atmosphere are all on the money, but it's the food.
Let's start with the choices. That menu hasn't changed in 5 years. Has it? Mix it up! Provide more specials. Provide more seasonal faire. But the reality is, that's not even my/our main issue.
The food, in a word - underwhelming. I ordered the half roasted chicken with fingerling potatoes and green beans. It was no different than something my ok cooking self could do. I don't want short order cook level food... I want taste. This was bland and did nothing for my palate. Oh well. Forget about the side salad... one type of lettuce and and a few slices of tomato and cukes. Yawn. Perhaps take a lesson from some of the finer dining establishments in Boston and Cambridge. Geez, even chain restaurants manage to rock the dinner salad.
If this had been my first time I would have been more indifferent. Chalking it up to one bad meal. But it was my third, and the consistency remains... bad.
In other news, our server was perfection. Perhaps try a chef not a cook? And if you stay with a cook, how about one that's graduated from a tech school.
