Recommend making a reservation for weekend evenings. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. We were disappointed with our experience though as we waited approx. 1 h our for our meals and one came missing one of the sides. Food was very good though and will return again hoping this was an isolated incident. We were planning on staying for dessert but due to the extremely long wait for our order to be completed we had to leave as we had theater tickets.

Dinner was very nice except for the noisy group of children seated near us. Parents were at a different table and these tweens were quite noisy. Otherwise it was a nice after theatre dinner.

Not worth it for the inflated prices. Nothing special about the food, and the idea that a simple dinner for two with only a glass of wine between us would add up to $81? In Lansing? No thanks. It was a $30 experience,

We chose Stillwater in Okemos because we like the Brighton location and had tickets for Wharton Center, so this put us 10 minutes away. We allowed an hour and a half for dinner and needed every minute - service was very slow! Food was delicious. We sat outside because it was quieter, however the patio furniture was quite uncomfortable.

Food was average; not worth prices charged. Service was a bit awkward and at or below average given there were almost no diners at 6:30 on a Sunday.

I went for Mother's Day brunch and ordered the chicken and waffles. The hash browns that came with the meal were burned and my son's hash browns were also burned. The chicken and waffles itself were good.

I really like this place, except for the food. We have been there twice, once for Easter and again for Mother’s Day. The feel of this place is nice, upscale enough but casual comfortable. The staff is great, and our server Miranda was terrific. The designer cocktails are pricey but interesting and tasty.

But it’s a restaurant so the food must deliver. It doesn’t. It’s too bland and the portions too small. We have ordered from the menu and the special occasion offerings and it just doesn’t make the grade. They advertise that there is a chef, but no good chef would serve that food. It feels more like short-order quality, think Big Boy or Bob Evans. No offense to either, just trying to make an understandable comparison.

I hope Stillwater can get it together. They have a lot of good parts in place and it would be a shame to squander them.

I came here after my college graduation and was not overly impressed. I wanted a formal dining experience with upscale cuisine and would have been alright with the food's prices had their quality been up to their cost. I had coconut shrimp and the shrimp seemed to be overcooked and I was not a big fan of the sauce that accompanied it. I did like the atmosphere though, so there is hope for the future.

Ordered the Ribeye, rare and was disappointed that it came out what I would call medium and was overly fatty. Have better places to spend $100 for a meal.

Recently, there seems to have been a great amount of turnover in staff which makes me wonder about management and their ability to maintain employees. Stillwater used to offer coupons but no longer does so, which is disappointing. Their waitstaff could also be more attentive at the bar. This is a local place that is close to home, which makes it easy to frequent, so overall it is acceptable. They are busy all the time, however, they could be a little more generous with their serving sizes.
