Our waitress was great but my food was cold and very undercooked. They were out of several items that we wanted. We probably won’t be back.

Our 2nd visit to Stonewood. Service and atmosphere were excellent both times. Food was better the 1st time. This time, steak had to be sent back to be prepared medium well.

The appetizers we had ( tuna & bruschetta) were outstanding. French onion soup very good.

Now the bad news my prime rib was OK at best and the baked potato was about half cooked. The shrimp dish a follow diner had, the shrimp were over cooked and dry, the poblano rice was also dry, green beans were so tough they were not really eatable. I forget the meals other diners in the group had but all were underwhelming.

Past 2 visits to Stonewood have been disappointing. Both times I raved about this restaurant but the food, the bruschetta specifically has been soft/chewy, not crisp and flavorful like it used to be. The portion sizes seem to have decreased also.

Really Great. Sirloin steak was the best we've ever had and I almost always have steak when going out. So much flavor in everything.

I think they are having the same issues as other restaurants post COVID opening. The service people seemed to be new. Asked for salad to come out first and it all came out at the same time. Found a bug in one of the salads and sent it back (they did remove it from the bill). Bread is an upcharge and I'm fine with that it just never showed up. Drink orders were supper slow. Kind of bummed the food what pretty good.

The food and service were excellent. The reason I rated 3 out of 5 is due to a change made regarding bread. They no longer offer cranberry rolls which were my husband’s favorite and if you want pretzel rolls it will cost $2.95 for 4. Although it is not a lot of money, Stonewood is a high end restaurant and should not be charging for pretzel rolls. Not sure we will be going back.

We've eaten here many times. Typically, the food and service is excellent. On this visit, the service wasn't great - a disinterested waiter - and the some of the dishes were very good and some not so much. The fried shrimp was great, but the boneless pork chop was not good at all. I'll pass on that one in the future.

We made a reservation for our first time and celebrating a 30th birthday. We requested a nicer table. All this was included in the reservation notes. We were sat in a booth in the back of the restaurant, the server didn't even know we were celebrating a birthday, nothing special was done for the birthday either. Our server, Melissa, was wonderful! I was just disappointed that this was a special occasion request and it was comparable to going to Applebee's.

While we arrived early for our 5:15 reservation, a table was ready for us. Melissa was our server and she was professional, friendly, and efficient. I ordered the Caprese as my entree. I would have liked to have been able to order this either as a side [smaller portion] or been able to add a protein for a reasonable cost. He ordered the Cedar Plank Salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, and green beans.

We enjoyed both our entrees.

We have eaten at the Valrico Stonewood on several occasions and have always had an excellent meal. On our most recent visit, my entree (shrimp scampi) was excellent and hot. My husband had salmon, which was very good, but the side dishes were lukewarm, and the rice was crunchy with a lot of uncooked kernels. The manager who stopped by our table did offer to bring another serving, but we were finished our meal by that point. We were celebrating a birthday which we indicated when we made our reservation , and also mentioned it to our server. On other special occasions were were offered a complimentary dessert , but not at this visit.
Overall, a nice meal, but not as excellent as on prior occasions.

First off, the a/c was not working properly, so the restaurant was very warm. Second, our waiter was new (only about a week on the job) and not very attentive. We asked for bread three times before he finally brought it out (he even came over once and said he thought he had brought it). The manager came over and spoke with us, and took note of our issues and said she would use them as a "training moment" for the server.

The air conditioning was broken and had been for some time but no one bothered to tell us so it was very hot making it hard to enjoy our food.
It took 20 minutes to get a server and that was only after we went to the check-in podium.

Made reservations the same day for 7:00 dinner. I signed up on their app and got the complimentary brushetta which became an instant favorite. We tried the clam chowder, salmon and rustic chicken. Everything on those plates was delicious, juice proteins, colorful not overcooked vegetables.

The waitress, Lexi was outstanding!! I would request her again. The food was cold and the salad was on a warm plate. Not the servers fault so we still tipped over 20% but the runner or kitchen staff should have done better

Everything about the experience was great! We went for our anniversary and they had champagne and a card on the table for us when we got there. The food was amazing, we had the bruschetta for an app, I had the chicken entree and my husband had the ribeye. Both dishes were delicious! We had the key lime pie & Florida orange cake for dessert and oh my goodness both were out of this world. Will definitely be back if we are back in town.
