Stonewood had wonderful staff and the food was delicious. We had the Valentine's Day special, so it was a great deal, too. And the filet mignon was cooked perfectly. My only complaint was some of the other customers were seriously dressed down for this restaurant.

We have eaten there several times and have loved it. Last night was different. Everything started ok, but then my wife found seafood in her steak dinner. She’s Allergic. The manager apologized and our waiter said that they were going to bring us dessert. We had mentioned way earlier that we would be getting the bread pudding dessert. Anyway, they brought one SMALL piece of key lime pie for us to split. Well, we unfortunately don’t like key lime pie. I nicely told the waitress that and asked for bread pudding. It took forever to then get that. It was cold when we got it. Oh, and nothing off our bill for my wife’s issue nor the dessert. Also...as dinner went on, we didn’t see our waitress much.
Just disappointed! We live 45min away and love when we can get up there to the restaurant, but rethinking if we want to eat there again.

Our server was Skye and she was fabulous. Gave us time to enjoy our cocktails as we decided on our meal. She told us to put our salt shaker at the end of the table when we were ready to order. What a wonderful idea!

The food (as always) was excellent. However the pacing of the courses was not! We had not yet finished our appetizer and the salad came; AND, before we were even half done with the salad, the entree was delivered to the table! We are not slow eaters! We chose not to have dessert or coffee. This whole experience took 45 minutes! We were not pleased....

The restaurant was packed and we waited 1/2 hour with a reservation. The food as usual was excellent but being sooo busy the service was less than perfect but ok. Usually the service is great.The manager understood and apologized for the less than excellent service. We definitely will be back.

We were disappointed as we had good clients with us for dinner...the drinks for two of us were
not what we ordered...had to reorder & then they were OK?.

My Asian Salad ( which I had enjoyed a week ago) was very disappointing, but I didn't want to make
a fuss with good clients with us!! Very few noodles or greens, and too much raw slivers of veggies
that didn't agree with my system later...what happened?? We were there late on a Sunday night before
and it was so busy we had to sit at the bar, and everything was superb.
This time things were “off”....My husband’s ribeye steak was not worth the price!!

Our clients seemed to like what they ordered, or didn't want to make a fuss? His first order
of the dark beer came out a Bud Light!! My husband’s vodka & tonic came out just pure
Club Soda!

It should have been better on a Monday night with no huge crowd!!

We have eaten there often and enjoy it. This time, however, the steak that was ordered well done came with a pink center. We had to send it back twice and by the time it arrived everyone else had finished eaten. They did make amends by not charging us for the meal and providing a free dessert, but their inability to get the order right on two attempts was disappointing.

Sometimes first experiences are lasting. The bartenders were very knowledgeable and friendly, and the hostees had an attitude. My wife and I sat at a table only 5 minutes after our reservation but sat there for 20 minutes without anyone server coming over. We did ask a few servers and everyone said they would find out. Finally, I asked for the manager. He apologized and offered us 2 appetizers and 2 glasses of wine on the house. This was the right thing to do. The food was outstanding, we ordered the Bruschetta and the Seared Ahi Tuna appetizers and shared the Prime Rib French Dip entree. We did leave satisfied and wanting to return. BUT, when I returned home, the bottom of my Robert Graham shirt was covered with red sauce. Whoever cleaned the booths did not realizes and did not wipe off the sauce that someone, somehow spilled on the seat.

We have been going to a Stonewood Grill & Tavern for many years when we lived in Orlando and loved it. We enjoyed it very much and loved it until it closed a few years ago. Since we moved we have been occasionally going to the one in Sarasota. This past time we questioned the charge for the very watered down cocktail that I had ordered during happy hour. Never before had I had a watered down small drink in either location. I was told that was the price and that there was a $.50 charge if you had ice and a $1.00 charge if you request no ice. I had ice and as far as I know I have never been charged for ice before. I am very disappointed and my husband and I will not be returning. This used to be our "go to" restaurant.
