I have been going to Stonewood in Tampa Palms since it opened. Unfortunately, the managing partner recently had to take a leave of absence for personal reasons last summer, and has not returned. I live closer to the Riverview store, so we went to this one last time. I had the strip steak; it was just ok. It wasn't that flavorful, and the mashed potatoes were a little bland. Not as good as it usually is.

Food here is normally great. The prime rib used to be the best ever....coated with fantastic seasonings and tender - in fact the end piece was always ordered (when available) because of the seasonings used. The portion served tonight was mediocre AT BEST - while it was cooked to perfection about 1/3 of portion was inedible due to toughness (it could not even be cut with the provided serrated steak knife) and fat. Also was not coated with any seasonings as before - they either lost their chef or changed suppliers, or both. Will definitely be going back, the other meal was wonderful, as normal, but I won’t be ordering their prime rib again...

Food was good and normally service is good. Must have been an off night, as our service was terrible. The order was prepared incorrectly and just getting our server when we needed her was a chore.

The service was not great. Had to ask for drinks several times. Also the whole atmosphere has changed. It used to be a nice intimate restaurant- now it has a chain feel.

We love Stonewood! Unfortunately tonight our waiter was brand new and probably needed a bit more support from management. We didn’t get bread until we asked and then it came at the same time as our food. As always the food was excellent. One disappointment was that the menu on this app listed a pork chop entree which was no longer available and of course, that’s what my husband had decided he would order. He was disappointed but his alternate choice was still delicious.

Truly outstanding.

My wife and I dined at the Stonewood Grill for her birthday and everyone there took the time to thank her and give birthday wishes.

The meal was excellent and the service superb.

This is the best restaurant in the Brandon area.

This was my first visit. The food was good. They ran out of prime rib which is why we went. Our server Abbey was great. We will go back to try the prime rib.

Vegetables in salad were sparse and not very fresh Told them no onions but they put them on. Steak was mediocre.
Outback has better food at a much lower price.

Our waitress Caitlyn was terrible. She virtually ignored our party of 4 and her attitude was indifferent and she looked bored. We had to get up to ask for a refill from another waitress. After a long wait at the end of our meal another employee came to our table with the bill. I spoke up about the service to which she replied yes, they knew of the issue and had already sent that waitress home. I guess if we had said nothing she would have skipped any apology.
But she did apologize - we had to ask her to split the bill as originally requested and she did that with a good spirit. But I must say I was very surprised that we weren't offered even a dessert by way of apology let alone some kind of discount off our bills. That was disappointing and not good customer service.

Our server/waitress was very knowledgeable and courteous. She was overwhelmed by a large rude party sitting adjacent to us and was not able to provide the rest of her tables with the needed service. No fault to her that some of our ordered items were not properly prepared . It was not worth our wait to have it corrected. After the meal was over it was pointed out to the server and she took the plate to the kitchen to show them and there was no response from the kitchen or management about the quality of the food on that plate!
Our drink orders(from the bar) took and exceptionally long time to receive which extended our meal.
After finishing our meal and waiting for our server to see if we wanted dessert, we thought someone would finish clearing our table and see if we wanted additional beverages. One person came by just to see if we were through with one of the wine glasses we were using -- apparently they were trying to get the bar glasses washed -- but he did not even offer to clear the plates from our table.
I have been very kind with my stars -- after reflecting what occurred during our meal and the quality of the food on a couple of the main course dishes I should have given a 1 star on the quality of the food just for those 2 entree's.
If it had not been for our server I would have given and overall 1 star as she was trying her best to take care of her tables.
Overall it was an overpriced meal for the quality of food and support service for the server/waitress.
Would I recommend this to my friend's? Not on a weekend night or a holiday night! Maybe even second thoughts on a week day when it is not so busy!

This visit to Stonewood was our first time there and it was on NYE - Tuesday nite. Our reservation was for 6:30. We walked in and was seated within 10 minutes at the most. The hostess could've been a little more personable. Wasn't greeted with a hello welcome to Stonewood or anything. If you're going to be working with the public, I think a little personality will get you along farther. I asked her if we can be seated in a booth because I'm only 4'11" and can't sit at a high-top. When I asked the hostess it was like I asked for her first born - but putting her aside, I wasn't going to let her attitude ruin my night out.

The service was mediocre unfortunately. Our waitress seemed to be entertaining the older couple across from us more than she was attentive to us. I don't understand when we get treated that way - our money is the same color as theirs. My husband finished his iced tea and he had to wait a good 15 minutes before the waitress came back around to see if he wanted a refill.

Overall, the food was delicious. I was expecting the worst since it was NYE. My husband and I were very pleased with our meals, and that experience wouldn't deter me from recommending them to anyone.

Wr were a party of 6 on New Year’s Eve.. we had reservations and were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. Alex was our waiter and was pleasant , efficient and had a great sense of humor but didn’t waste a minute of time. The meal came much quicker than we expected since the restaurant was very busy. The appetizers were excellent and the timing on all was perfect And all were happy with their meals . We Will be back .

We are regular customers at Stonewood but Christmas Eve this year was very disappointing. I brought my mom there and her salmon was charred. It took a while to get someone's attention but we finally told our waitress and another person who walked by who asked how our food was but we were almost finished when they asked if they could bring her a new one. My mom literally had to peel the char off to eat the salmon. When the bill came they did not even discount it. I paid it in full and then told the waitress very nicely how disappointed we were. She said she talked to the manager but he/she did not think the salmon meal should be taken off or discounted nor did the manager ever come to apologize or try to make things right. Very disappointing and I will not be going back any time soon.

Everything about our dining experience was wonderful. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our waitress provide great service and was very personable. Noticed How shiny the glass of the artwork hanging was. Clean bathroom. The only thing I did not like was the doneness of the rice pilaf and the brocolli. For me personally they were under done. The brocolli had a nice green color but should have been cooked a few minutes more.

We enjoyed a great meal and great service on Christmas Eve. The staff was friendly and efficient and all three of our meals were really good and prepared very well. We were too stuffed from dinner and appetizers, so we took desert home to enjoy later and it was really good as well. Great place for a fair price.

Husband and I had a lovely dinner. We both had filet mignonette. I had 7 oz and he had 9 oz. I couldn’t really see a difference in sizes. Filets were delicious.
We had Long Island Ice Tea and Cosmo. Both were perfect.
Our server was Abby. She was very good and attentive.
I would like to see 2 sides included with the steak instead of just one.
Food is always good. We will be back soon.

Great food, however service was extremely slow for a Saturday night. Only one server was working at 4:30. Nada was slow and I had to ask repeatedly for my cocktails, bread etc. We came in at 4:30 and we didn’t get our dinner until 5:30!

Not sure I’ll be back if service doesn’t improve.

I had Rainbow Trout with broccoli and 5 Grain Medley. My husband had a 16 oz Prime Rib with Asparagus. Both of us really enjoyed he taste of our food. Waitress was so friendly. She did a great job. Our drinks never emptied before she asked us if we wanted another. She was nice and chatty. I liked that.

We were entertaining another couple for the evening. Everyone's meals tasted great however, both our friends' meals were barely warm. The waitress warned us how hot our 2 plates were but didn't say the same to them. As they didn't want to interrupt the timing of our meal they declined the offer to have it remade or reheated. They would have enjoyed their food so much more had it come out the way it should have. We love dining here and were surprised to have this happen.

We arrived on time and had to wait to be seated. We sat at the bar and I told the hostess to let us know when our table is ready. We waited about 30 min when I went to ask how much longer she said the table is ready. Not sure how long we would have waited at the bar if I didn't go ask.
The food was OK. The steak was extremely rare we ordered medium so they took it back to cook some more. Did not get any discount or desert thrown in for the inconvenience. I will not go back to this restaurant.

We ordered the lobster roll, it waascold amd served on a hot dog bun, very over priced for the food quality and portion and presentation. I ordered Mahi special of the day also over $23 tiny little piece on The plate with my asparagus side , very boring. My husband got the chicken pasta. He said waa bland and not great at all. All in all service waa great, nice looking restaurant that's over priced for the quality served.
