New to the neighborhood and loved this place. Great apps and specials, like the buttery tomato soup and yummy scallops with beurre blanc. Lovely service in a welcoming space. We’ll be back!

Started with the grilled pizza and had the grilled branzino as my entree. The food and service were very good as usual.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday and the host was kind enough to arrange a dessert with a candle for her. Great food and excellent service.

Hosting family in town who’re visiting NYC for the first time. We trusted SPC to give us a great first-night dinner for our family and they delivered beyond expectation. Thank you so much.

The food is fresh and delicious; the portions are tiny. There is nothing particularly inventive about the way the dishes are prepared, however, and the wine list is not particularly special. The wait staff is extremely helpful. They, and the lovely simplicity of the bar, and two rooms, make the restaurant. The music is a bit too loud and does not fit the overall ambiance. Good food should be accompanied by good music, n'est pas? BTW: my lunch experiences have always been better than my dinner experiences at SPC. Curious.

A little pricey, but well worth it! Everyone loved the daily special pizza appetizer, main courses, and desserts! The hanger steak frites and chocolate brioche pudding were particular favorites!

Still a go-to for upscale dining in the neighborhood. Consistently good. Wife’s Branzino was perfect. My salmon was also quite good, though portion somewhat small for the price. Quality service and lovely outdoor tables round out a fine summer evening.

Great dinner here on a packed Saturday night. A small cozy place with a friendly neighborhood vibe and a neat crowd of families and couples. Host and service were very accommodating. Drink choices were fun, their warm bread was delicious and our steak frites and salmon were perfectly cooked—we literally cleaned our plates. Definitely one of my favorite neighborhood meals in Brooklyn. Also, I must say again how great the staff were. A+!!!!

A few months ago we had a wonderful scallop special that lived up to its name and then some. We have returned two times since then, once to a less overwhelming serving and just last week to a very poor showing all around. We asked if your whole branzino could be filleted / deboned and were told it would not be a problem. The fish was split but filled with bones too large to be called digestible. It was presented with little imagination, no sauce, had little flavor, and was a major disappointment for $30. Not to be outdone was your shrimp scampi linguini which was served... with angel hair. The small portion sat in a pond of butter which overwhelmed the taste. We mentioned both issues to our waitress who said she'd tell the manager and did not hear back from either person. A truly disappointing meal in all regards. We know you can do better.

Nice outdoor setting but loud street noise & extremely loud sirens made conversation difficult. Very long wait wait for ordered food and then wrong food came. over 30 min wait for order & then it was very ordinary. expensive, disappointing experience. won’t be returning.

A limited and slightly wacky menu makes this restaurant a risky choice. We found food that we liked, but it was with some difficulty. The server was wonderful.

We came for lunch on a weekday. It was not crowded, so there is no excuse for the very poor service we received~ no menu, no silverware, we had to get up and get the sugar ourselves from the adjacent table, because the waiter was seldom seen. Just asking at the end how everything is, is not a substitute for good service.

Stone Park is a reliable neighborhood mainstay. I was there a recent Sunday night for dinner. Food quality is consistently high. Service was slower than usual though. I don't know why; the restaurant wasn't full and there seemed to be enough staff floating around. Lighting is good and you can comfortably hold a conversation with your eating companions.

We enjoyed our meal very much and the serivce was excellent. Portion size was okay but surprisingly modest, presentation was a little less than you'd expect and our seat near the door was uncomfortably chilly. Asked if we could move but no luck there. Stay away from the door and you'll have a lovely meal.
