    The food and the service were terrific, a bit on the pricey side but worth it! Unfortunately the guys drinking at the bar were incredibly loud

    The real note to make here is that our server was absolutely outstanding, she was so pleasant, knowledgeable, kind and attentive to our table... Probably the best server / waitress I have encountered in a very long time. She was a delight. The food was very good. The only thing I had some pretty mixed emotions about was that we were asked to leave after 75 mins due to an incoming reservation. We had a reservation at 5:00 and there was a table at the bar we moved to to finish our cocktails... the couple that was with us were a little more bothered than I was over it, but I would probably still go again. It was a overall a good experience.

    Fish & chips were excellent! Brisket sandwich was massive, had great flavor, but a tad bit dry. The au jus and sauce helped. The parmesan truffle fries were delicious! Drink menu is awesome! Will definitely return!

    Have dined here many times, but this time missed the mark. Both greeting staff and service appeared annoyed we were even there. So confusing since we love this restaurant. Next visit will be awhile.

    Server was excellent and so accommodating. I don’t know her game although she did a very professional yet kind job. Coming here since our evening meal that was wonderful we were treated well but disappointed with the two brunch dishes we ordered. French Toast with Bacon as well as Mushroom and Fontina Omelet with French Fries. French toast was bland and disappointing. The omelet was also bland and the fries were tasteless. After such a wonderful initial visit we decided this was the perfect place for a special occasion but it really missed the mark. Not sure we will visit again.

    Had the steak special with bone marrow - was amazing. Drinks were delicious, ours even had a little toy turtle in the ice. Music was a little loud inside, other than that it was a wonderful dining experience.

    Unfortunately, our Valentine's Day dinner at this restaurant was a disappointment. The prix fixe menu left much to be desired—the tomato soup from the 2nd course was bland & the replacement salad was drowning in dressing. The 3rd course, braised short rib, was all fat and inedible. I went safe and replaced it with a hamburger and fries and even the fries tasted like they'd been cooked in used oil from something else. Our saving grace was our wonderful waitress, who was attentive and helpful throughout the meal. At 43, I have never returned a meal before, so I felt horrible and like a "Karen". I assure you; I am not. It was just that bad. Sadly, my dinner date became violently ill after eating something at the restaurant, and when she reached out to the management and they finally replied, their response was rude and unprofessional. Although we appreciated the efforts of our waitress, the subpar food and poor customer service left a bad taste in our mouths. Overall, we cannot recommend this restaurant.

    The service is impeccable. We ate in the bar at a high top and the atmosphere was lively. Millee? Was very attentive despite having to take care of people seated at the bar. The only suggestion is to have some ‘lighter’ mains. They usually have a special but they didn’t that night. The cocktail list is very traditional but in a good way. Tried three different cocktails (don’t judge ;) but the smoke old fashioned is to dye for. Love the presentation with the mason jar! Well done all around. Lastly, I like the fact that you can enter the side door directly into the bar.

    Second visit. First time we couldn't get in. This time I made a reservation. We ordered appetizers only. The fondue really missed the mark however the sausage served with the fondue was excellent. The calamari lacked seasoning. The sauce for the calamari was rather strong with vinegar and did not complement the flavor of the squid. The pork and cashew was interesting but could benefit from seasoning The Mexican lady cocktail was fair. The wine was good. Our server was outstanding. Worth another try.

    It’s a two store front deal. One door into the bar. One door into the restaurant. But they are open to each other inside. Very friendly and attentive right away. Our server Billy was very knowledgeable about the food. Cocktails were also excellent. If you haven’t gone, you are missing out.

    This was my second visit and I’m still impressed with the excellent food and excellent service. The brisket sandwich was delicious and HUGE—it seriously took me two days to eat it all. I subbed the regular fries for the parm truffle fries—wow!! Mango habanero wings are just the right level of spice with delicous ranch dressing. Stone Turtle is becoming a favorite!

    We will be back! The only complaint and not sure how to overcome it is the main entrance is very breezy and with the artic weather, blasts of cold were persistent. ST has a heavy drape to deflect but with the frigid conditions it was ever present. Food was very good, Billy was a great and attentive waiter.
