I took a group there for a conference meeting at the Hynes convention center. It was close and the ambiance was fantastic. I had a great time! I would highly recommend it.

We very much enjoy the menu at Stephanie and find the quality of the food to be consistently good. The evening we were there was a Friday and the noise level was a little too high for complete relaxation, but overall it was a good meal and a pleasant experience.

The restaurant was busy and very noisey. The wait staff was too busy to be attentive. We are asked if we wanted a refill on our drinks once our food was gone. Would not go back - nothing specials other than the negroni!

Very noisy and stuffed, tables were too close to each other for any private or business discussion, we asked for a more detached table and they placed us beside the kitchen in a very tiny table where waiters were buzzing around all the time, not recommended for any business meeting

Stephanie's was a real treat! We were visiting from out of state and had a party of 7 for breakfast on a Saturday. Bloody Marys are made to order with so many options and delicious! French toast was SO good! Everyone in our party was happy with their food. This is definitely a "splurge" kind of breakfast for us but it was worth it and memorable!

Overpriced food. Bad service had to literally look for someone and call again and again to take orders because apparently they forget to assign a server after seating. I ordered burger without bacon and yeah it came with bacon and when I wanted to change I had to wait for like 15min before anyone to listen.

This is a great place to sit outside if the weather is nice. Inside is more intimate; great dinner! We waited quite a while for the waiter to come over and get our drink order which we weren’t too happy with. Other than that, things were nice. It was a very relaxed evening.

Quesadilla appetizer was excellent but we were disappointed with the lobster guacamole. The cold corn with the guacamole was a distraction (not good!) and the puffy chips were greasy. Probably wouldn't order it again. Drinks were good.

We had a reservation and still had to wait a half an hour for our table, after being told 20 minutes before that That we would be sitting in 5 minutes because they were cleaning our table. So obviously a lie
The food was just ok and overpriced.
The service was not good. The waiter came over with our water and then proceeds to ask us are you ready to order? Never asked us if we wanted something to drink, never asked if everything was ok
Don’t waste your time ime or money

The crab cakes are wonderful! Serving with kraut was different and pleasing. We shared the lobster Mac n Cheese and it was disappointing, was not very hot and not much flavor, would not order again(although it looks beautiful).The goat cheese appetizer was delicious and different enough to not feel boring. Overall, enjoyed our lunch. Thanks.

We had a dinner reservation for 730PM on a Friday and when we arrived were asked if we would like to dine outside. It was a beautiful evening an we dined outside. We enjoyed it quite a bit and got to see the passersby and do some people watching. Food was AWESOME. Service was a bit slow when we were trying to pay and leave, but overall, still outstanding.

Server wasn’t very attentive. Constantly had to flag her down. Food came out quickly and was decent. I had the bolognese which was very thick and compact. Couldn’t really get through it so not sure I’d order it again. My date had the burger which was good. Onion ring tower for an app was good. Just wish the service was better.

Overpriced food and drinks. The fish and chips were good but I thought overpriced. Had a hard time deciding what to order because nothing struck me as interesting. Dining room was loud. Been here on several occasions when traveling but not sure why. At first they tried sitting us in a tiny table between two talkative couples. Just getting in to the booth would have been an adventure. Had to ask for a different table so we then got a good booth.

We sat inside and the atmosphere was very nice but it was noon time so it was very noisy.

I would recommend Stephanie's on Newbury.
