Mikelai, our server, was excellent! The Prime Rib and the Covina with the Crab Crust were both outstanding. The martinis were great, too! A wonderful dining experience! As usual.

As always the cocktails,food from appetizers to dessert was excellent! I would have given this five stars overall but the last two times we’ve eaten there the service has been quite slow.
This is still one of our favorite restaurants in the area.👍

Pleasant atmosphere and friendly service. Everyone’s entree was excellent. - tasty, attractive and well-prepared. Only complaint was that the restaurant was much too cold to be enjoyable.

Overall we had a decent time at Stonewood. The atmosphere is nice, decor is rustic yet classy, and the food arrived in a timely manner (minus the bernaise sauce....see below). However there are a few things that prevent me from giving it my full approval.

It is not cheap and for the price you pay I did not expect things like an undercooked steak, cold & tasteless bernaise sauce (which came out more than 10 minutes after the steak arrived), and overcooked chicken tenders. To be fair, the other two meals we ordered were perfect and the appetizers and deserts were great, but when you drop over $170 (not including tip) on a meal, a 50% satisfaction rate on 4 orders is not acceptable.

The server (Sally) was very nice and pleasant and on the ball. We will consider other options before returning.

Honestly we’ve been going there for all our special occasions and this last one fell short. We got the Bruschetta which was fabulous as always... when our entrees came 3 of the 4 of us got the Filet w/garlic mashed potatoes and well the plating was lacking compared to all other times. The filet was cooked a bit over from med rare that was ordered and the sauce was over peppered and the mashed potatoes were the worst I’ve ever had.
However our server Tenisha was superb! I’m hoping that this was a one time issue as we will try again soon!

Thank you

We were the only 2 couples sitting outside which was great. However our server, while very pleasant, was a little slow. We had ordered sangria which we didn’t like. She graciously took them back but we waited quite a while for new drinks. We have dined at Stonewood prior to the pandemic. This visit we found the menu very limited and rather disappointing. Overall the food was pretty good but my shrimp/scallops dish was cold.

The food was tasty and potions more than adequate. However the service was way off. The server was hard to find. We had drinks and next thing we know dinner was there together with the salads all at once. We were never offered bread although other tables were served it. We have had good servers there before so it might had been an off night.

Very nice and casual place to have a good meal and conversation. My steak was cooked to my liking, medium rare, and my wife had the featured catch of the day. She ordered the fish blackened and it was a bit over seasoned. It was a great meal.

We have been going to Stonewood Grill for the past 8 years. On most occasions we have really enjoyed our meal and the service. I realize that with the Covid-19 situation that service would be less than best.

All the service people wore masks and seem really concerned with the quality of cleaning the restaurant. What I could not believe was that almost every person coming in while we were dining did not wear masks, were not told that they must wear masks and so on. Why?

Now for dinner, we each ordered salmon. We like it at Stonewood. We were told by our server that they only had one piece and one of us would have to order something else. This is at 6pm? What the heck? One of their major items that people order was out by 6pm??

I for one will be contacting Manatee County about the Mask situation? I guess with the lack of proper kitchen ordering, you can be out of fish at 6pm.

One other issue, we did not receive 100 points for our dinner. I guess Stonewood no longer provides customers with points. This is terrible. Will make our choices easier in the future.
