Place really seems to have found its rhythm...food is outstanding, service is good, Claremont vodka, and a great value. Did I mention beautiful views

We really enjoyed ourselves and had a great time. The most significant downside is paying Manhattan prices for Morris County. Although the food was great, it was not $100/person great.

would recommend, however there is no lunch menu available on sunday, and dinner prices are extremely high. lunch menu should be available during certain hours daily!

Windows all around with lake and mountain views. Lovely staff from check in to check out. Clean and well appointed bathroom. The piano player was not intrusive. Just played upbeat familiar tunes. Food was well displayed and yummy. Plenty to choose from. Wait staff cleaned as we ate and asked often if we needed anything. Can't wait to bring the whole family.

We brought a party of 26 to Stone Water for my sons wedding rehearsal dinner. We could not have been more pleased. The food was delicious and service impeccable. Every guest was pleased with their meal choice and there was never a wait for service. Our wait staff were proactive and met all needs. The setting is very pretty as well. Afton helped coordinate the dinner for us and was approachable and friendly. She did a great job in helping with our food selection. Drinks were generously poured and tasty! We do not live locally but plan to visit again soon! Can’t say enough about Stone Water.

Everything was great here from food to fantastic lakeside view! Inside lovely wood, high ceilings, huge window, nice looking bar, to our great server, Taylor. Special at lunch $14 bottles of good wine! Amazing. A little expensive at dinner maybe but all the Lakeview places are. I loved this place.

Took friends here for dinner...probably the 4th or 5th time coming. Food was much better than previous times: calamari, brussel sprouts, and salmon were standouts. One of our party members has a very strict diet and they were very accommodating. I am gluten free and love the fact they have gluten free nj based Claremont vodka...my best experience here yet! Great views.

Shrimp cocktail was over cooked or out for a while (dry and tough). Main course was ok a little over cooked. Wine was great. Server was inexperienced about menu for someone who is a vegetarian and took a very long time in between courses. Table for 2 was located by extra chairs for other tables thought we were by storage area. Extra chairs should be out of view. Don’t think I will go back. Should have been better for what we paid. I gave 2 stars because the place looked good.

Food, Service, Ambience were all great. Perhaps a bit too noisy - we had to shout to hear each other. And my mother in law had an echo in her hearing aid as it was so loud.

Stone Water is a new restaurant for me. I was pleasantly surprised with the location on the Lake and attractiveness of the building. I did expect more seafood choices on the menu, but the items they had were very fresh and cooked to perfection. There were more things to try, so we will definitely be back. And the service was prompt and friendly.

Jordan our server was so personable and new the menu well. 3 out of the 4 of us got the scallop with risotto because we have had the luscious and pleasantly seasoned seafood before. Never disappointing. My husband had the pork chop that was cooked Sous-vide which made the meat sooo juicy. Finally, dessert was very nice with carrot cake, espresso, cappuccino, and salted caramel ice cream with yummy and soft chocolate chips.

Lovely place with an outstanding view. Both the food and wine selections exceeded our expectations. The waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing, and we did not feel either rushed or ignored. We chose a night with live music which simply added to the evening's pleasure. We'll be back!

We celebrated our 14 year anni. We had to wait a bit for a server to realize we were seated. Apps/entree/drinks were good. Oysters we not the freshest. Great views of the lake. Great valet parking as parking in that area is terrible.

As always, the setting at Stone Water is wonderful. I love the prim ribi served at Sunday's Brunch. .The first serving was delicious, with rare meat being offered, the second portion, a new roast was well done, and I couldn't eat it. We hope it will be better on our next visit for brunch, in October,

Everything was perfect - we started with a burrata salad & flat bread - both perfectly presented and delicious! Two of our group got the chicken and pesto and one got the French chicken breast. Again - perfectly prepared, great balance of flavors and overall wonderful. We ended with the blondie dessert - can’t be missed!!

Unfortunately there was a massive party next to us and our waitress spent more time with them then us. She kept thanking us for our patience but we had 0 patience left. Totally felt ignored. My filet mignon was charred too much and not cooked to medium rare as asked. Long waits for service and drinks/food. Pricey and the quality wasn’t there. Disappointed. The best part of this place is the lake views.

Absolutely beautiful night, but we get seated as far away from the water as possible with no view. Why? Why would you that?

I would only suggest going here on a beautiful night. It was noisy and chaotic in the dining room. I had to move right night to my husband just to hear him. The food was ok, not amazing which is what I had expected when going here.
