Chicken Pot Pie and Sea Bass special were super

The beef tenderloin skewers on the seasonal menu...not so much

The pecan pie did redeem those.

We asked twice for the overhead lights to be turned down, it never happen.
Someone needs to dust the window sills before you open each day.

Nathan, our server, was very friendly and helpful. The sea bass was excellent, as was the salmon appetizer, and the martinis were perfect. Another great experience at Stonewood.

Thanksgiving evening: we were among a very few people eating late in Thanksgiving. Although they had been very busy all day, we still received excellent service. Eileen was our server; she was very sweet and efficient.

Josh was outstanding. I could not order Thanksgiving meal because of my sodium restrictions. Josh recommended the grilled salmon that was wonderful. Thank you Josh, for making my Thanksgiving special even though I could not have the traditional turkey, gravy and stuffing.

Quality of food has diminished over the past several months. Filet mignon was tough and chewy for price charged. Not at all tender. Wedge salad seemed to be a smaller portion than previously. Breadsticks/rolls were given before and now there is a charge. We always got Stone Bits app, but last time there they were also tough, so did not get them this time. Restaurant needs to up there game and go back to a better quality food.....

Thanksgiving 2021
I felt badly- I have such a busy work schedule and wouldn’t be able to host a meal in our home this year. I booked Stonewood Grill and hoped for the best. It was the best. Our waiter Jordan was top notch and so wonderful and fun that we wanted him to sit with us! The food was absolutely delicious! Two of us had the traditional turkey meal, which was so plentiful and tasty. Prime rib was perfection, grilled tuna, filet mignon…. It was a wonderful time and I am grateful. No guilt anymore about not being able to cook this year for my family. Stonewood and our waiter Jordan were the absolute best! Thank you!

Seated promptly when we arrived and to the table we requested. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota. My wife had her usual meal of shrimp and scallops that she really likes. I tried two new things on the menu. Butternut squash soup and grilled sea bass served with risotto and fresh asparagus. Both were excellent. For starters we both shared the bruschetta, the best I’ve had anywhere. Dessert was a pecan-pumpkin pie served with cinnamon ice cream. Very good except the crust was very hard to cut into. Cocktails and wine were great as usual.

The food was excellent, especially my grilled pork chop. Others in our group very much enjoyed their meals. Service from William was very good, as well. However, the hostess was neither competent or friendly. Fortunately, things got better after we were seated. One other minor problem: they were out of some of the vegetables/potatoes on the menu. Lots of interesting items to choose from on the menu.

Food is always good. Salmon on plank was outstanding. Only complaint is that they have changed policy on free breadsticks and offer them only as an extra. Too bad as that was a big attraction for us

Nice neighborhood restaurant.
The food is consistently good.
I was very impressed with scallop and shrimp dinner. My husband liked the salmon on cedar plank.
We went early and restaurant was relatively quiet and not jam-packed.

My husband and I enjoyed a very good dinner at Stonewood. They were fairly full with people dining inside, outside and in the bar area. The service was good. They seem to have hired a number of people who serve the food for the wait staff as, like most places, they may be understaffed in that area. However, we have no complaints about the quality and taste of the food, or the service overall.

Our waiter was awesome and I wish I could tell you his name. We were a table of three sitting in a booth and we lingered over drinks and talking. Then we had appetizers and finally dinner. We were literally there for at least three hours. We were catching up. Our waiter was not at all annoyed by this. He was really awesome.
