    Servers were very nice. Food was good. Dessert was just ok. The only comment that is negative is that they don't replenish your silverware after each course. I was left with only a fork for my entry. Had to use my husband's knife.

    Excellent Service, food and ambiance. Hands down the most elegant dining venue in North Central Florida. They make their own pasta and the crab cakes are the best I have ever had. Two members of our party tried the grouper and both said it was wonderful. None of us tried any of the beef dishes, but this place had several steak options and we saw other guests enjoying them. I'm from L.A. and Ocala does not have many high end dining options, this location is as good as any top end venue you would find in L.A. or any other large metropolis. You will want to dress up to eat here. We saw some people in business casual, but most men had jackets or sportscoats and the women had cocktail dresses. It really lends itself to a special occasion. I highly recommend!

    The food at Stirrups was top-notch. The menu has a lot of tempting offerings. The corn bisque, mushroom pasta, ribeye, and truffle fries were all outstanding. The restaurant is beautiful and it resides in a beautiful hotel. The acoustics are such that we had to repeat ourselves frequently--even with carpeting the restaurant is loud (though this is a minor complaint). Our main problem was that the service was not nearly as attentive as it should be for a restaurant of this caliber. We would have had dessert and another drink but just didn't feel like waiting longer.

    Ambiance is comfortable luxury. The food was delicious and prices reflect. You do get a generous portion of everything and I ended up with several boxes of leftovers. Service is excellent and servers are well versed with the content of the menu for answering any questions.

    It was a truly lovely experience. It was my birthday and my two year old niece helped me celebrate. The kitchen was a little behind and she became restless. The wait staff brought out a togo container and a napkin as a bed for her stuff dog that tagged along. It was adorable and I love how they made my niece feel special as well.
