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.
Busy, but we had great service!!
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....
Impressive menu, great wine list. Wait staff is very nice and attentive. Nice dinner experience!
From our drinks through dinner, we had a wonderful time. Our waitress was attentive, the food was well prepared and delicious and it was an overall wonderful experience.
David, our waiter made our night out with friends a wonderful experience. He was very attentive and our food was wonderful.
Food is great! Fresh, tasty, and good value for price. Perfect size portions. Definitely will go again!!!
French dip sandwich was THROWN TOGETHER/ I/2 had only 1/2 meat. THe other half had all the cheese in or on the bun.
Good restaurant, needs more staff to be better . Took us a half hour once seated to get a drink.
The service was excellent and the food absolutely delicious. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
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.
Great food. The service was outstanding. Our server was just the right combination of sweet and sassy! All of our meals were perfectly prepared and delicious.
Overall good my oriental salad I did not enjoy the noodles were hard not cooked the noose should be rice Asian noodles flavor good I will not order it again our friend had a different salad so much better I feel your food is up and down meaning good at times and not so good at times not consistent we have been customers here since day one and in Ft Myers when you opened years ago early 2000
Great server & delicious food.
Fish prepared perfectly.
Everything about this restaurant is great. The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming. The good is delicious and the service is excellent. A true gem.
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
It should have been better on a Monday night with no huge crowd!!
What a beautiful evening. Our waiters name was Isaac, He was a very efficient and thoughtful bringing out our order In a timely manner as we needed them. The food was excellent. We will definitely be coming back and also telling our friends.
Always a good place to meet for business meeting discussions. Quiet and open.
The fried shrimp and mahi-mahi were both very good.
Server was a little slow because it was a Saturday night. He made up for it and the manager stopped by to greet us. We have only had good experiences.
Very nice evening
Consistently good food and service. We have always enjoyed our meals at this restaurant.
No surprises.....one of our favorite bar/restaurant locations in Florida!
Dinner with friends- their first time & they loved it
Service & food was great as usual
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.
Always great, fast seating, professional hostess and outstanding waitress!
Lightly blackened Mahi was excellent, as was the Salmon appetizer. Josh did a great job. Still one of our favorite places!
We had not visited this restaurant in some time, we ordered our usual, chicken pot pie and prime rib french dip, we were not disappointed. The service was great and food served promptly.
Lunch was excellent. Service great. Food tasty and reasonably priced. Will definitely return.
Tristan is always a great server. We are always happy when we get him.
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.
Generous portions and cooked perfectly. Nice atmosphere manager is always welcoming and engaged.
Stonewood is our go to place for good food at a reasonable price. We have never been disappointed.
Our first time there, food was amazing a great way to spend any occasion or just a night out. Our waitress was outstanding very pleasant. She even brought a birthday dessert I wasn’t expecting. Great way to spend an early dinner or an evening out.
I won’t be returning.
